Workshops, Courses, Ceremonies & Events
Valley Spirit began in 2016 as Valley Spirit Cooperative & Wellness Center. It was a shared studio space of three unique businesses with a common goal: to contribute to community by offering services, teachings and products that support healing and growth, while enhancing awareness, communication, good health, peace and consciousness. As an art co-op and wellness center, it was a gathering place for conversation and community. The three of us opted to “cooperate” with one another in a single space, bringing together visual and performance art (Kristin Kunhardt), design and graphic art (Lee Kancher), and healing, meditation and movement arts (Jampa Stewart) so that we might all benefit from one another’s strengths. The “all boats rise” mentality, which is often lacking in mainstream business, led the way. We decided to open up the space to other practitioners and artists that shared our mission, uniting to meet common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations.
