"A Center dedicated to the One Hearted Road of Life and the return path to it at this time in history"

It was almost 6 years ago when Donnie heard an inner call and moved to Nicaragua to create a sanctuary for healing and to grow a community supporting this vision. For the last year Theresa has come on board to co-found and co-create the Southdoorway Learning Center as well as make a home with Donnie.

"I am turning 63 and this is my time to distill my life experience and deliver it to the people coming behind me as a gift that might be helpful in the times that they will face during their life"

The year 2017 will bring weekly sweatlodges that take place on our site and regular meetings/gatherings that people are able to join, like the Reclaiming Tunder Course.

We will keep you updated on our progress in our newsletter and for even more recent information, pictures and content you can friend us on our Facebook-Page.

We are based on the beatiful island Ometepe in Nicaragua, located near Moyogalpa right next to the lake.
