30 Years of Hope & Healing

For over 30 years, Quest for Life has been running life-giving programs and has supported over 125,000 people living with life challenges. Based on the latest research into health, healing, meditation, mindfulness, neuroscience and epigenetics, our innovative programs are delivered by a professional team of highly skilled psychologists, counsellors, therapists, educators and body practitioners.

With every program, we witness the amazing transformation of people who refuse to be defined by the physical, mental or emotional trauma in their lives. People arrive at Quest feeling broken, anxious, grief-stricken, distressed or depressed and, by the end of the week, they’re filled with joy and hope, and well on their way to healing. With the right tools, skills and strategies and a safe and healing environment, Quest makes a profound difference in people’s lives.

People on the edge of despair, fear or hopelessness are often unable to work and can’t afford to attend a program. These people include men and women who’ve experienced a life-threatening diagnosis, sexual, childhood or domestic abuse or violence, war trauma, mental anguish, grief, divorce, sudden job loss or another significant challenge.

Your support, donations and fundraising help us continue this important work.
