Living Sanctuary, Interfaith Healing Center
To heal, develop, and evolve achieving our full creative potential in a nurturing environment co-creating a sustainable, reciprocal relationship with each other and the Earth.
To provide local and global resources that contribute to the healing and restoration of individuals, families, communities, and our environment.
Welcoming people of all backgrounds; we inspire, empower, and cultivate inner awareness, self-knowledge, and connection to our heart/spirit/power source to passionately express our lives with altruistic purpose including social and environmental justice.
Heart-centered, reciprocal relationship lays the foundation for personal, family, community, and environmental renewal.
Expanding our definition of self to include self as others: family, community, and Earth/environment; which, forms an evolving individual and collective sense of self.
Wholistically developing the spiritual-conscious, emotional, mental, physical, creativity, and relational/social dimensions of the self awakens a different relationship with the world.
The Sacred is often known as God/Goddess, Source, Nature, the Divine, the Mother/Father/Creator, Universe, Holy Spirit, Spirit, Higher Self, and Consciousness and other names/expressions that embodied the highest frequency of love, compassion, and light. Developing a natural, heart centered-relationship with the Sacred informs relationship with Nature, the Earth, and each other. This nourishing, inner relationship (connection, communication, and communion) facilitates heart-body, soul, spirit healing and human (Hu/Light manifesting) development. We are able to “power up” receiving Light/frequency, guidance, and resources for our daily life evolving to our fullest potential and expression of truth. Ascended Masters of different cultures and religions exemplify this natural, inherent, heart-centered relationship (e.g., Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha, Kuan Yin, Mohammad, and more).
The Living Sanctuary, Interfaith Healing Center offers sacred space and supportive community for in depth healing and development. We provide multiple resources as applied, heart-centered relationship: to contribute to social justice, healing, and development; particularly helping to resolve issues of oppression, systemic racism, and food, housing, and resource apartheid. Our community projects include the Pay-It-Forward program that provides holistic health and healing individual and group sessions as well as classes and courses to resolve trauma (personal, intergenerational, transgenerational, ancestral, community, cultural, and historical). The Nature Studies Conservatory, our school, provides education and training for applied heart-centered relationship; eco-preneurship; and slow, natural, sustainable living and community restoration.
Articles of Faith: Eight Fundamental Assumptions

Respect, support/advocacy, and heart-centered engagement with one another is foundational for building relationship and compassionate action within the IHC community and in the world.

- Holding intention and aspiring for the highest frequency, highest good, doing not harm as exemplified by the ascended masters (e.g., Jesus Christ, Gautama Buddha, Kuan Yin, Muhammad, and others).

- Cultivating the ability to access inner wisdom receiving Divine guidance and resources for greater clarity, insight, truthful expression, and prosperity in daily living to contribute to personal and collective development and healing.
