The Seven Pillars
Seven Pillars House of Wisdom arises from a resolute desire to help create a more harmonious and thriving world. It is a place of hospitality and service, a community of fellow seekers cultivating a living wisdom that touches people’s hearts, minds, and actions. This process takes outward form in the unfolding experiences of life that we describe as “the seven pillars.” They, and the relationships between them, provide the foundational architecture for all our work.
