The Portland Wellbeing Initiative
Increasing social impact across Portland.
Over the past four decades the Everett House has been focusing solely on bringing people peace and tranquility in community and self through our spa. The times have changed, and we realize that we all truly need to take action across the board to create positive impact across the city, nation, and world. Our focus is this - positive social impact. Through building and nourishing strong communities and vibrant interactions, together we all truly can make the world a better place.
Here are our focus points for global success.

All artists agree to produce at least four workshops to the Everett House, donation based. As Dane always says “Nothing is radical nor revolutionary if not everyone can obtain.” The artists in return will be featured in our news blasts and receive one month free of unlimited spa time. Our new months’s “artist’s in residences” and future artists can be found here, in this tab you can also apply.
Our brand new social ceremonies in our new jungle tea room! When we come together, we make the world better. So we started this twice a week offering to do just that, bring people together in a highly intentional way. But don’t worry, it’s going to be fun, you are going to laugh, and you may just meet your new best friend or life partner in the mean time. Book a spot, get lost in our jungle, and let your tastebuds soar while your body falls into that zen place.
“Social ceremonies are here! lets send a big cheer, bundle up and sit near..to a familiar stranger and soon to be friend our journey is a mirror.“
Divine Feminine Series
We support women, with out the divine feminine, there would be no life. This women’s circle was birthed by Karli Erickson - and now each month a new leader takes the torch and leads a four week series to empower and gather women across the city. Each month the former women leaders of each month, and the social impact director come together and choose the next leader for the next month. From the “Divine Feminine Community”:
We are a sacred feminine community focused on growth, empowerment & complete success (mental, emotional & spiritual). We are a spiritually aware (& curious) women's circle creating a safe environment to empower each other in reaching our highest potentials. We come together to embrace the Divine Feminine gifts we've all been blessed with, & we form authentic connections through shared vulnerability, honesty, laughter & respect. By honoring our innermost wisdom, we thrive in support of each other through shared insights for lifted growth. Together we form a learning hub of interactiVe rituals & daily practices.
