Supporting Transformation…Sustaining Life

Change as Opportunity

Why does the the Folke Institute exist? Why do we believe in the power of transformation? Why are we passionate? Here is our philosophy:

In life, change is inevitable. When we're faced with change, however, we tend to look at it fearfully, thinking, "What am I going to lose?" The Folke Institute teaches you to ask instead, "What can I gain?" We'll help you recognize that you have choices. Simply put, we want to support people in knowing they have choices. We want to assist in discovering what those choices are or seeking out other choices.

We understand that no one is broken. No one needs to be fixed -- there are just different choices to be made. We listen to people and find out where they are, where they want to be, and then give them the resources to build a bridge that works for them. We empower people to build their bridge.


Remember, the Individual feeds the Team which feeds the Organization which feeds the Community and the cycle continues on.


In every community there is work to be done. In every nation there are wounds to heal. In every heart there is the power to do it.


- Marianne Williamson
