About Doorway to joy
Doorway to Joy was founded to bring the ancient but ageless teachings of Zarathushtra into day-to-day modern living, leading one to a joyful existence.
It all started when in 2018 a couple of childhood friends decided to organize a spiritual women's retreat in the beautiful coastal city of Santa Cruz. It was at this retreat that "the want and the need" for a spiritual organization based on the teaching of Zarathushtra became very apparent. This revelation gave birth to the creation of Doorway to Joy.
Doorway to Joy focuses on bringing forth a way of living rooted in spiritual growth and community based on teachings of ancient Iranian wisdom. Through group prayers, Gatha Studies, educational seminars, cultural events, and retreats, the ancient Zoroastrian teachings and practices are brought into the modern way of living guiding the participants to a deeper level of inner connection with the divine. As Intended with the ancient teachings, the wish is to help participants find their way to a healthy and prosperous life.
Righteousness is the Highest Virtue.
It is radiant happiness.
This radiant happiness comes to a person who is righteous for the sake of righteousness alone.
