"For us to calm down and heal, we need a visceral feeling of safety.  No doctor can write a prescription for friendship and love: These are complex and hard-earned capacities." 

Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score



We're not telling you how to get the experiences you need, we're giving you the experiences you need to live healthy and whole in the world today. 

"The best way to grow and learn is by being together in purposeful ways.

I created Vashti's House so we can be together as we grow and learn. So, come on in, make yourself at home, and enjoy the fun!"  Vashti

We live our lives from a road map our brain has developed based on lived experiences. If you want to give your brain a different road map to a healthier place, you must provide new experiences.

Living healthier in an oppositional world can be as simple as taking the life you have right now and experiencing it more intentionally and in the direction you want to go. Vashti's House has the right tools and resources to help you achieve this!


When I was seven, my mom left.  My second mom died of cancer a few years after she and my dad were married.  I don't remember being seen or valued as a child, so I grew up disconnected from myself and others.  I could not experience important feelings of connection and safety.  I had to overcome that as an adult if I wanted to be a supportive co-worker and emotionally available to my husband and children. 


This and other experiences is what inspired me to create Vashti's House and resources like Grow Your Heart/Train Your Brain, a fitness program that introduces simple daily activities to improve one's capacity for closeness and self-management.


Vashti's House offers a variety of carefully crafted and simple experiences like porch-sitting, reading to a child, or telling ourselves the truth can have a big impact on our lifelong journey as a person enjoying peace, expectancy and a sense of belonging in every day life.

Check out our Community Outreach Project!

We were very excited to partner with Church @ The Park in upgrading the community space at their new location for young adults, ages 18 to 24.  Whether they're aging out of foster care or living with circumstances that  doesn't include a home base, this program will give them a solid footing to launch into adulthood. 

Thank you to everyone who made this project possible.
