Spiritual Sanctuary's for Haven are the physical locations of our interfaith ministries and programs as well as a spiritual community center for local communities.

ESI Transpersonal Film Division
ESI’s Transpersonal Film Division is an aspect of the school that is focused on the development of creative projects using the artistic medium of filmmaking to inspire reflection, motivate others and encourage spiritual activism/social justice. Film can be a powerful medium that can cross borders of understanding and be inclusive of all walks of life. Through a Transdisciplinary approach this division often uses symbolism and metaphor as the vehicle for communicating our message beyond the typical constraints of culture and/or language.
Haven Community Gardens
Haven gardens are a way for local communities to come together and grow together. Using methods that have stood the test of time as well as the use of new methods we strive to build community through our connection with the Earth and the people around us. We are currently working on a project to grow organic vegetables and herbs with the volunteer support of our local community to grow foods that can sustain a small neighborhood of people or small garden membership.
Food Trucks, Feed Hope!
Have you ever thought about the most effective way to feed people without cars, with out money, maybe even without a home? At Haven Int. we are currently in development with other partners to create a cost effective way way to feed the homeless through community and business involvement.

This program is in the development stage, we are looking for partners and funding for this project. Please contact us if you are interested in lending a hand!
