"Everything God created has a purpose. Not one thing was created in vain" ~ The Talmud.
What is it
A vision and ministry based upon the message, example, and teachings of Yeshua (the Hebrew name of Jesus) on demonstrating selfless Service, Oneness with all life, Unity with Creator, and unconditional Love. S.O.U.L. Academy is dedicated to guiding, empowering, and inspiring people to come closer to a personal relationship with the loving God of all creation.
How it came to be
The vision was given in 2010 to Shiri R. Joshua, psychotherapist and inspirational writer and speaker, during a life-changing moment while passing by a truck filled to capacity with chickens. Shiri's heart broke and she prayed to be shown a way to make a difference. "School of Compassion" was the gentle, surprising answer. Although at the time it was not fully understood yet, over the years it gained clarity: It is not about adopting a particular diet over another, but about remembering that the Spirit of God is within all creation by virtue of being created in His image ('Be'Tzelem Elohim" in Hebrew)!
