The Mute Swan 


Founded as the result of a spiritual quest for hope and healing in life. We are on a mission to encourage others to "discover hope and healing through God's Beauty in the World.”


We are but a drop in the ocean, but without that drop the ocean would be less.

Discovering hope and healing through God's beauty in our world


The Mute Swan is a non-profit organization which began in 2005. It is the result of a spiritual quest for hope and healing in life. Each of us is inspired and encouraged by the blessings and graces of people along the way who reflect the beauty within their lives, the goodness of God, and the light of truth.

“I want to help people discover the sacred in ordinary events, even times of trial and loss. God is always present, consoling, healing, and encouraging us through the call of beauty.”


Our Projects
