It all started in 2009 when its visionary team purchased an 80-acre largely undeveloped ranch, rich in timber, water and solitude, closely located to the “Trail of Tears” in southeastern Oklahoma, on the northeastern border of Texas, an area often called Texoma.
From 2009 thru 2012, the ranch was sculpted and textured with trails leading to seven uniquely different ponds, each filled with water from the 27 fresh water springs that permeate from huge ancient aquifer.
The ranch never runs out of water even with the most difficult of droughts, a metaphor extended to our many visitors and program participants that hope, change, and renewal never cease. Surrounding it all is an abundance of wild-life that seems to have grown extensively since 2009.
Surrounding each pond are lodges, cabins, a wilderness base camp, hiking/biking trails, and meditation/contemplation areas all designed to present a unique alternative to contemporary, conventional treatment/recovery programs.
