Steve
For over thirty years, Steve Torma has gently guided our culture toward cooperation and regeneration. He is the former President of Earthaven Ecovillage, where he continues to live his passion for community and sustainability. He co-founded The REAL Center in 2007 and was on a core faculty member for The Asheville Tantra School. Steve is trained in Nonviolent Communication, Radical Honesty, Body Electric, Cuddle Party, Restorative Circles, Permaculture, and Creation Spirituality. Through his compassionate presence and guidance, Steve has helped countless people to find healing, direction, and meaning in their lives.


Steve truly lives what he teaches, and that is a rare find. He is intelligent, generous, and meets people exactly where they are without needing them to change. Ironically that's exactly what most of us need to change. Steve has a depth and breath of knowledge that is useful for any type of relationship. Don't miss an opportunity to work with him.
