Animas Valley Institute

Animas Valley Institute's mission is to help individuals re-align their everyday lives with the rhythms and cycles of nature and with their own most deeply-rooted dreams and passions, those found in their souls. They believe that living in alignment with nature and soul leads to the greatest personal fulfillment and the most useful contributions to the world, and, ultimately, creates a sustainable, balanced, and soul-centered society. Animas Valley Institute offers Animas quests and soulcraft programs nationally. They also offer a comprehensive program to train soul initiation guides.
