The Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is a like a Moroccan speakeasy meeting a Goddess temple. It is a welcoming safe haven of tranquility, where life is sacred and trauma is healed, where humans and other animals can find refuge and exist in peace with dignity. The Sanctuary was created as a place, a mission, a way of life, and a state of being. It evokes an experience in a safe space where presence, connection, and transformation can occur.
