For as long as I can remember, there has been a part of me that questioned “my actions”. Why I did the things I did, even when it appeared to be the ‘wrong things’. To find my answers, I embarked on a journey of learning and self-discovery. In the many personal development courses I did, LIFE COACHING and REIKI entered my sphere. I immediately knew that these were the vehicles that would bring balance and harmony to my life.

Be still awhile, and listen.

How The Sanctuary Came About
I asked for what I wanted. To live my purpose, to do... to be that, that I was created to be. I was precise. It meant everything to me. I let go of my wish so that the Universe could compute my desires. In other words, I got out of the way. I let go and let God, and then, my Sanctuary was born. In that stillness, in the darkness of the early morn was the whisper, "this is it". This is "your Sanctuary" within. In the midst of the business of life, find the real magic, the gift that Life is. Discover and catch a glimpse of the Being in being human.
