Further Shore programs are offered at Wayne’s House, a retreat facility offering respite, practical information, compassionate listening, and touch for those seeking to explore the end days and other transitions. Our clients enjoy the natural beauty of Flagstaff’s ponderosa pines, as the retreat is located with immediate access to National Forest land. The cozy Kachina Village A-Frame is dedicated to conscious living and dying. The home itself is a lasting memorial to our friend, Wayne Marinelli, aka The Food Doctor, who passed into spirit in October of 2004. His child-like delight with living and valiant dying has left a lasting signature to soothe and uplift all who enter.
When we began to notify the community that Wayne’s house was to become a retreat for persons with cancer and other terminal conditions, there was a tremendous outpouring of generosity and love. There have been many contributions to the Friends of Wayne’s House sponsorship program as well as numerous in-kind donations.
The first floor features a spacious great room with comfortable sofas, TV, VCR, Stereo, dining table, chairs, credenza, kitchen, bathroom and one bedroom. The second floor has two bedrooms (one under a skylight for watching stars and clouds).
