pasted-graphic-1Like the unexpected fire of a sunset, or the first flash of autumn brilliance, Carnelian captivates. Its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and  joy, motivation and endurance. Carnelians are said to stimulate power and stamina, to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck. It is a talisman for success. Carnelian lends the courage needed to help overcome difficulties and defend a cause. It promotes idealism and a sense of community. Join with us to maintain the dream and energy of The Carnelian Center in our community.


The Carnelian Center is a non-profit organization, run by a five-member Board. The Carnelian Center fulfills Dixon’s long standing dream to bring affordable holistic health care to the local community.

Our holistic health care spectrum includes cultural and self-development education; movement classes such as dance, yoga, Tai Chi, and Pilates; a full range of body treatments; and a nexus for health-centered educations such as preservation of locally grown foods, herb walks, nutrition, cooking, gardening, counseling groups, and literary & visual art education.

The Carnelian Center provides local practitioners with an established place of business and an affordable work space. We offer greatly needed financial assistance to the community’s local clients and provide a space for local practitioners and educators to work within their own community.



The mission of The Carnelian Center is to provide the community with affordable holistic health care while nurturing the individual through art, education and cultural integration.


Our vision creates healing in a beautiful, peaceful setting with respect for the ecosystem and the preciousness of water.
