Do you have land, a home or property sitting empty? Would you like to transition what you are currently doing with a team of others who want to utilize spaces for projects and make change in the world?

We are seeking spaces for retreats, courses, in-person workshops, to join our home-share program, to start learning centers, healing centers and community living and seeking ambassadors to manage these projects. Do you have a space to share? Do you have experience in building community and governance? Walk the ‘Outer to Inner Rings Path’ to open your center through Alighten’s community portal.

5th ring: Advisor.
Become an advisor to Alighten, investor or trustee.
Help us by joining meetings, making decisions and planning for the growth of Alighten. Building community is not an individual’s path, it takes many individuals working together to grow new systems of change. We invite others to join our team in growing these systems of change for good in the world. Follow the ‘Outer to Inner Rings Path’ to find how you may fit in our collective growth.

** Our Private Membership Association is open to all faiths and beliefs. Alighten Ministries observes medical and health-choice freedom. We do not require anyone to disclose their vaccination status or make preferences on status. We do not adhere to government mandates or allow interference in conducting business in the Private Domain. Understanding this is essential to the success of your membership consideration.

While we respect personal medical choices we are a group which supports fundamental freedoms including but not limited to: religion, health and education. We ask new members to be open minded towards others.
In Private Member Associations, we vet our members through an application process that will allow us to build our membership base with the most compatible alignment possible between members. Unless there is a particular portfolio of preferences that would compromise the overarching goals of Alighten Ministries, expressed by potential members through the intake process, we do not discriminate. Once a member joins, they may not share private information about other members or their activities within Alighten outside of our private network without explicit permission to do so.

Participate and be part of creating holistic healthcare and education ecosystems!
