EverGreen Holistic Ministry's purpose is to educate people in the care of their body as the temple of the Soul and to help rest their minds in the realization that Divinity inheres in, as well as transcends every particle in the Universe and all its beings.
EverGreen Holistic Ministry is not affiliated with any established religion, nor is it the intent of the Ministry to promote its philosophy solely without regard to the philosophic or religious beliefs of those who seek its service.We acknowledge and put our trust in the Divine Spirit of the Universe. For the Spirit makes things live or die, to suffer, or be healed. By the benevolence of the Divine Spirit, compassion and loving kindness is placed in the hearts of the Pastoral Counselors to help awaken the healing light within.
We encourage the use of gentle healing of the body, mind, and spirit from its afflictions and sufferings. This may include the use of herbs, aromas, pastoral counseling, laying of the hands, prayer, chanting, meditation, and any other non invasive, positive means of caring. We teach that each person is responsible for their health and well-being, and that the choices they make each day will affect their inner peace and spiritual enlightenment.
We encourage each person to learn about the healing plants and how to use them for their food and medicine as teachers of the sacred road to holism. For the herbs are the Sacraments for healing.We ask each person to respect the Earth, for she is the manifestation of the Divine. Each of our actions on the Earth shall be taken with a sense of mindfulness to the environment and to the well being of others. We, as a ministry, are against the use of violence and war.
These actions create great suffering for all life. What we do to the web of life affects all of creation.We believe that the use of drugs, whether recreational or medicinal, will eventually lead to the disintegration of the body, mind, and spirit. Thus we discourage their use. If a particular pharmaceutical is used for a life threatening situation, then this may be supported with caution as to its side effects.With heart and soul, each of the Pastoral Counselors of this Ministry shall endeavor to relieve the client of their troubles by educating them in the ways of holistic thinking and living. For it is stated in the Ancient Vedic Scriptures, " A healer, even though well versed in the knowledge and treatment of affliction, that does not enter into the heart of the person with the virtue of light and love, will not be able to heal them."
Furthermore, this Ministry does not contemplate monetary gain or profit to the members thereof and is organized for nonprofit purposes.
