downloadDear Friends,

We’d like to tell you about Orenda Healing International’s expanded focus and programs.  

Orenda Healing International (OHI) is a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization, founded in Santa Fe, NM, in 1992.  We originally focused on designing and sponsoring arts-based community service programs in New Mexico, Northern California, and Oregon. However we have recently expanded our mission to support research and education in the fast-growing field of alternative healing.

There are many ways to be involved in Orenda’s work, depending upon your particular interest.  While the following paragraphs contain highlighted links that will take you to various areas of our website so that you can explore at leisure, one of the most exciting bits of news is the upcoming launch of our online journal.

If you’re a writer or an artist and have a scholarly paper, short story, poem, or visual art work you would like to share, our online publication, Four Winds Journal, is currently accepting submissions for the Fall issue, with the theme of “Winds of Change.”  The new deadline for submissions is September 15, 2016.

If you’re a researcher, we will be posting RFPs for relevant research proposals  in Spring 2017.  There is no deadline for research proposals– we review proposals on an ongoing basis.

If you’re an alternative healing practitioner, we offer online courses, tutorials, and webinars.  Please submit your idea for a course via email to and we will schedule a meeting to discuss it with you.

If you’re not engaged in any of the areas mentioned, but wish to support our mission because you share our values, you may make a financial donation or donate some of your time and energy to help with any of our main programs.

Finally, if you’re busy but intrigued and would like to be kept updated on OHI programs and activities, you may join our email list or contact us directly to tell us about your main area of interest.

Whatever level of involvement appeals, you are warmly welcomed to the OHI community.

Many blessings from all of us at Orenda Healing International!
