"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 compassionate message, example, and teachings of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah on demonstrating selfless Service, Oneness with all life, Unity with Creator, and unconditional Love. Inspired by the animals, 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, a psychotherapist, animal healer, and inspirational writer and speaker. It came 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: Remembering that God's Spirit dwells within all creation by virtue of being created in His image ("B'Tzelem Elohim" in Hebrew)!
