History

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death… choose life so that you and your descendants may live.” Deuteronomy 30; 19

Myra House: Holistic Living Center, Claremont, CA., was created in October 2001 by Dr. Rev. Sung Sohn in partnership with his wife, Myra Sohn. Myra House was established as a multicultural spiritual retreat and environmental education center for the formation of a healing and caring community.

In 2001, after fifteen years in this country, the Sohns sensed the need to live holistically and to teach others about ways to answer the cries of a hurting environment and the diseased human spirit, psyche and body, which are all interconnected. To respond to this need, they designed and built an award-winning ten-bedroom home and transformed the grounds into a pond-dotted landscape, all based on ecological and spiritual principles.

In 2007, the Sohns founded Ecoterra Natural Herbs and Holistic Pharmacy in Claremont’s Village West. Ecoterra was opened to offer the community of Claremont an extension of the values of the Myra House Holistic Living Center–holistic care for the body and earth through local produce, raw and vegan foods, holistic medicine–within a community supported business model. Ecoterra has been embraced by Claremont residents and become a local hub for community outreach and education.

From the beginning, Myra House has been connected with the educational communities of the Claremont Colleges and a partner of the Center for Sustainability and Spirituality at the Claremont School of Theology. The Myra House provides an ecological and spiritual home and educational center to guests from all over the world. House guests, retreatants, families, and professionals from religious, environmental, and health backgrounds continue to grace the home and fill it with stimulating dialogue and creative energy for individuals to draw from and find healing and renewal.

Presently, house guests and retreatants take part in the rhythms of a common life: household chores, gardening, communal meals, etc. Holistic Living Center Interns are also a vital part of the Myra House and Ecoterra community–working, learning, and living the practices and vision of Myra House under the mentorship of dedicated staff.

The Myra House ministry provides a unique and greatly needed experiential immersion in holistic alternatives. It has the enthusiastic support of board members, who are setting programmatic priorities and providing a sound financial basis for this incorporated, non-profit religious ministry. We welcome the support and participation of persons who share this vision and would like to become a part of this ministry.
