Amethyst Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated for 25 years to the awakening of human potential through the creation of a culture of wellness and the conditions for learning, healing and living in innovative and meaningful ways. The organization was incorporated in the state of Pennsylvania in 1993 for charitable, educational, and social welfare purposes. Amethyst Retreat Center is the trade name used publicly to offer services and events supporting our vision and mission.
Amethyst Foundation is managed by two all-volunteer teams working collaboratively to insure the fulfillment of the foundation’s vision, mission and values.
The foundation's Board of Directors provides non profit governance and is a team of 8 individuals with a well rounded complement of professional health, business and program management expertise.
The Community Council is a team of 8 individuals overseeing and managing operations, public relations, community outreach, programming, and environmental care.
Amethyst Retreat Center is also supported by an engaged community of volunteers involved in the day to day care of the retreat center and surrounding grounds.
We see a world that values a culture of wellness through connections - a renewed connection with nature, with our own individual spiritual source, and with each other.
We are committed to inspiring, educating, and collaborating with others to discover, experiment with and practice innovative ways of learning, healing, and living:
• where recreation and connection with Nature is a profound source of healing, wholeness and wisdom;
• where social innovators and seekers of the better world gather to collaborate and regenerate the systems that create our future;
• where our inner spiritual journeys awaken us to the potential of our daily lives;
• where supporting and caring for each other is valued and is a source of fulfillment;
• where wellness and quality of life for all is nurtured and celebrated.
o Equality - because human beings all share the desire for well being and quality of life
o Self-empowerment - because the future lies within us
o Gifting – discovering and sharing our gifts of healing, teaching, and living: giving of our skills, our resources, our time, ourselves
o Conscious Choice and Action - by considering the whole and asking "Does this enhance quality of life for me AND others?"
o Creativity - solving human problems creatively rather than by antidote
o Simplicity in Living - by expressing gratitude rather than seeking more
o Collaboration – we must create this life and world together.
