Transformation House

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart… Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awak­ens." -Carl Jung

Transformation House is a program of the Venus Rising Association for Transformation and is locat­ed at Loveland Sanctuary in the Isis Cove Community in the magi­cal blue moun­tains of Western North Carolina, near Asheville. Venus Rising Association stew­ards Dove Mountain, adja­cent to the Isis Cove Community, with hiking trails, sever­al outdoor temples and quiet medi­ta­tion spots on the land.

We ask that you plan on a two week mini­mum stay as our expe­ri­ence teach­es us that time is required to take ourselves apart and put ourselves back togeth­er again.  This process will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to prac­tice being your authen­tic self so that you can take that back into your life and your rela­tion­ships.

We must be will­ing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is wait­ing for us.” -Joseph Campbell

Our Transformation House staff is made up of gift­ed Shamanic Ministers who walk and embody the path of Shamanic Soul Recovery, led by Linda Star Wolf, Venus Rising Association Founder & Director and Transformation House Spiritual Director, and Ruby Falconer, Venus Rising Association Assistant Director and Transformation House Managing Director.

About Transformation House

  • Transformation House is not a treat­ment center.  If you require prima­ry treat­ment for an active addic­tion or mental health emer­gency, we will be happy to refer you to an appro­pri­ate medical treat­ment center. Transformation House is a shaman­ic psychos­pir­i­tu­al program for person­al trans­for­ma­tion.  Whether you find your­self deal­ing with spir­i­tu­al emer­gency, anxi­ety, a lack of Sacred Purpose, or a lack of mean­ing in your life, the Transformation House Soul Recovery Program will support you through your person­al jour­ney of trans­for­ma­tion and empow­er­ment.
  • A phone inter­view is required prior to enrolling. The Transformation House Soul Recovery Program is not covered by insur­ance as we are not a medical facil­i­ty. We accept cred­it cards and will work with you to help you plan your trans­for­ma­tion­al retreat here.
  • We offer NAADAC CEUs for profes­sion­als who want to do inner work as part of their train­ing.  The two-week Transformation House Soul Recovery Program may also be trans­ferred to our Venus Rising Association train­ing programs if one should decide to become a Shamanic Minister, a Shamanic Breathwork™ Facilitator or to seek a degree with Venus Rising University.
  • If you would like addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion on the Transformation House Soul Recovery Program, please contact Venus Rising at: or 828–631-2305.
