About Beth & Rick Olsen


One moment, Beth and Rick Olsen were enjoying an ordinary life filled with all the joys and frustrations of raising their two children, Josh and Jessie. The next moment, a drunk driver plowed through a red light at eighty miles per hour, hitting their van and changing everything.

Somewhere between heaven and earth

"When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways - either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength." 

 - The Dalai Lama

Non-Traditional Approaches to Healing

The Olsens attempted traditional healing methods but quickly found that counseling did nothing to help them get a grasp on their monumental loss. They then turned to nontraditional approaches—a decision that led them to Peru. It was there they finally began to undergo the immense physical, mental, and emotional changes that allowed them to understand that everything—including the accident—happens for a reason.


The Nazca Lines are a group of pre-Columbian geoglyphs etched into desert sands in southern Peru, the origin of which remain a mystery. 

Rick & Beth participated in a powerful ceremony along a double spiral, similar to a labyrinth flowing inward. The idea is to shed your past and your burdens the further you walk in and feel it peel away as you walk back out. When Rick exited the spiral, his hair had turned white.

Spirit has a master plan

In a split second our lives as we knew them died forever. 

Spirit has helped to heal us, and has put both of us in many different situations where we have been able to help others. 

We have integrated the tangible world and the spirit world, and can move between the two. And if you stay open and responsive, Spirit will work on your behalf. 

"When someone dies, a life is done, 
but the relationship goes on." 

- From the movie Tuesdays with Morrie

Life ... 

It takes courage to enjoy it. 

In the aftermath of our tragedy, some friends said they couldn’t imagine what Rick and I went through, and I said, “Good. Don’t even try. It was hell. Just go and hug your children and be grateful for every moment you have with them.”
