The vision for the School of the Essential Self is to provide safe spaces that allow participants of our workshops and programs to build strong connections and trust in their own Essential Self, while at the same time being able to relate to the larger world around them with a curious mind and an open heart.  Witnessing the deep work the participants engage in and seeing the connections and friendships being built is a tremendous gift.

The School of the Essential Self is an all volunteer organization. All donations will support scholarships and travel costs for participants and facilitators. Our vision and hope is that lack of money should never prevent a young person from joining a workshop or program.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization donations are tax deductible in the US and through our partnership with the Samasati Foundation, based in Cologne, Germany donations to the School of the Essential Self are also tax deductible in the European Union.

Our gratitude for the support and love we have received so far is beyond words. If you'd like to support us financially you can do so by check, debit, or credit card, and by PayPal.


We hope you can feel the difference this is making in the lives of some amazing young people!
