CIVANA Life

Everyone at CIVANA strives for community and meaningful connection. That connection is something that we live and breathe in both our personal and professional journeys—as moms and dads, friends, citizens of this planet, and co-creators of this healing center called CIVANA. Consider this blog our way of staying connected with you when you’re away from our campus.
