Immunity is afforded by the refuge found in a sanctuary ~ a sacred,  or holy place to contemplate, deeply.  Create your own retreat at our Sanctuary, where the flora, fauna, and animals take you on a memorable journey.  Orchestrated by a scholarly team, you will find clarity of mind, wellness of body, and profound happiness within your spirit, all directed by your desires and goals.  Gather a group of friends to walk the gardens, go on a scavenger hunt, create nature crafts, bake or cook some culinary delights, or study the science of energy medicine.  We have lots of ideas and experience…..we’re more interested in your imagination ~ call or email today!

(Better Brittle)  Finding comfortable seats, we settled in for a brilliant musical journey by the tender hands of Joseph Pepper.  Without referring to any sheet music, we were mesmerized by the impressive works and free flowing hands that traversed up and down the 1946 Steinway baby grand!  We look forward to another stunning performance in the fall ~ stay tuned!
