A Home Destined for Healing
The beautiful building that houses the Foundation of Vibrant living was built as a residence in 1913. Throughout the years, this house has seen several owners and uses. But for the last several decades, the house on the corner of May and 11th streets has been a place for healing. Known as the Klahre house for many years, and most recently the location of the Next Door Foundation, this home has seen several generations of young people receive guidance and counseling along their way.
The Foundation of Vibrant Living is the next evolution of the care and healing that has been provided within these walls over the years.
The Foundation of Vibrant Living is Born
Nikol Clark and Randy Goetz became the owners of the building in 2014. Following a period of loving renovation and remodel, they opened the Good Medicine Lounge Tea House and Nikol Angel Acupuncture. The house came to life after several years of vacancy and quickly established itself as a place of sanctuary and relaxation. Before long, the many rooms in the house were filled with Health and Wellness Practitioners and an organic progression towards a Wellness Center took place. In June of 2018, Nikol and Randy decided it was time to fully embrace the Healing Community that had gathered and create the Hood River Foundation of Vibrant Living.
At the Foundation for Vibrant Living, we are slowing down, we are being still, we are listening into the silence, and we are hearing...Ourselves. We are discovering the truth of our being, which is profound in its simplicity.
We invite our community, our friends, our family, our Tribe to gather with us in this Work. This is the work of Vibrant Living! All you need to bring is yourself, right where you are at, just who you are. Leave everything else behind: all the masks, all the doubts, all the judgments and simply join your essence in celebration of the completeness that exists in a life lived Vibrantly.
