Dear Deep Living Community, 

It’s hard to believe we have only been with Deep Living Lab for a few months now. Looking ahead to the horizon of possibility, we feel both familiarity and wonder.  

We have spent this time listening, learning, practicing, and dreaming. Now, we are pleased to share the first Deep Living Lab three-year strategic plan. Insights and aspirations from our facilitators, board of directors, staff, community members, and outside perspectives were consciously integrated into this process. The strategic plan is firmly built on the extraordinary vision, wisdom, and passion of our founder, Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy, who continues to shine a light onto the path of this work.

We have crafted this plan around an integrated, three-pronged organizational framework: 


We live and reflect Deep Living inside and out.


We offer rich and meaningful experiences to a global, diverse community.


We build capacity to steward this strategic plan and achieve sustainability.

While each of our pathways advance our mission, success will depend on many overlapping synergies of organizational effort. 

This is just the beginning of enormous potential to impact humanity in ways that we can only imagine. The time is now to build a strong foundation for which to grow and expand our gifts into the world. The strategic plan is a living roadmap and will continue to evolve as we sense into what is being called for. We invite you to join us in imagining and living into this potential–for ourselves, our communities and the world.

With gratitude, 

Barb Mathison & Liz Vanderwerff
