The Sanctuary is a space to learn, to share, to dance, to sing, to explore your inner self, to integrate unintegrated emotions, to feel joy, and to help you to heal yourself from energetic and emotional imbalance. The Sanctuary is a large family house in which everyone supports each other in their healing processes and retreating from their normal lives.
The Sanctuary is housed in a luxurious colonial-style five-bedroom house, set within a walled garden in a peaceful neighborhood. The Sanctuary offers a choice of private or shared rooms. Despite their own unique energy, the rooms offer proper personal space, comfort, tranquility, and inspiration.
The ascension room is a shared room which you reach after walking up the stairway. It has a total of four beds, one single bunk bed, and three single beds.
The healing room is a private room. It has a queen bed, and it shares the bathroom with the Nirvana and ascension room.
The nirvana room is sometimes used as a shared room and sometimes as a private room. It does not have its own bathroom but shares the upstairs bathroom with the guests in the ascension and healing room. It has one queen size bed and a bunk bed so it can be used for up to four people.
The reiki room is a semi-private room separated in two using a room divider for massage sessions. This is another shared room which is located downstairs just inside the front door. The layout is exactly the same as the ascension room. The first part of the room is our therapy room space and the other half contains a bunk-bed and a wardrobe which can accommodate two individuals.
The love casita has its own shaded rooftop space to relax, read a book, or watch the sunset. Located in the garden, within the walls of The Sanctuary, the love casita offers a more private space than the rooms in the main house. It has a queen bed and its own separate entrance gate, and it can also be accessed through the garden.
The mandala master suite is the most luxurious room at The Sanctuary. It has a queen bed, its own luxury bathroom, with bathtub and shower as well as a large private balcony looking over the garden. Facing east, it has that vibrant light from the morning sun as well as the evening freshness when it's time to relax. Large windows and fans help this to be the coolest room in the house.
