  • Description


    This is a holistic center located in urban Cebu City, Philippines whose mission is to empower people to take control of their health. We are a member of the Holistic Centers Network. Our organization, in its own humble ways, is contributing into the visioning of the future of healthcare. Our driving force is the fact that a lot of people are disempowered instead of being empowered. So we wish to inspire and encourage people to take charge of their health through empowering health education and plant based whole food lifestyle.

    The center is composed of the following:
    - Plant Based Restaurant
    - Health Food Store and BookStore
    - Wellness Center
    - Lifestyle Medicine Center
    - And most of all a Holistic Center for self transformation

    Our other activities include publishing health empowering educational materials like books and dvds, and conducting seminars to communities and various groups who are interested to learn more about self health empowerment.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our place is an integrated place that we have been crafting for a while now, with the purpose and mission of empowering people to take control of their health. We publish books, hold health education classes and plant based cooking demos, and wellness and wholeness seminars and retreats. We are crafting the future of healthcare through innovations on health, wellness and wholeness.

    Our place is unique as we focus on simplifying the complicated, teaching to people that there are only 2 bottomline root causes of diseases, which is toxicity and deficiency, on the body mind and higher life energy levels. The concepts we teach are not the usual concepts taught in the current conventional medical models which are widely influenced by the pharmaceutical industry. We also have an advocacy whose mission is to reach out to the communities and empower them to be their own best doctors to themselves. Taking part in the movement that empowers people is indeed rewarding.
