Transforming Lives and Growing Visions

The Etherean Mission is actively involved in creating a healthy, spiritual presence in Accra Ghana, West Africa through change.
These are their current projects:

Etherean Mission Hospital Complex
The Etherean Mission Hospital is a holistic hospital to enhance the quality of health and well being. It combines traditional, spiritual and Mind Science technology for the total well being of mankind.
When completed this hospital will be a three-story facility. Each floor approximately 20,000 square feet. The hospital will provide In and Out patient care. A modern laboratory for diagnosis and research. A naturopath department that will employ the use of herbs, sound therapy, Solar-therapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, osteopathy and other healing methods in the treatment of disease.
Although the hospital facility is only 2/3 completed the Etherean Mission has been running a Holistic Healing Clinic since 1973.
Our success story with the use of Herbs, Meditation, Mantramic Sound, Solar-therapy, Hydrotherapy, Prayer and Positive Imaging techniques motivated the membership in 1989 to vote for the construction of a Hospital Complex for total well being.
The estimated cost for the physical structure of the hospital project is $1,750,000. To date we have spent $950,000 to bring it to the present stage. The interior of the hospital is estimated to cost $1,500,000 for equipment and furnishings.

 The School Project

The Growing the Empowered Child School

The school will embody the entire curriculum of the Growing the Empowered Child Program with age specific modules addressing the amazing journey from the tiny child to the young adult.
It is our passion to create this model school that may be replicated throughout the world.
The Etherean Mission, in Ghana, has acquired the land for the construction of a model school for the Growing the Empowered Child Program. The program is estimated to cost $1,500,000.
