evolution sanctuary

this is the bright home
in which i live,
this is where
i ask my friends
to come,
this is where i want
to love all the things
it has taken me so long
to learn to love.

this is the temple
of my adult aloneness
and i belong
to that aloneness
as i belong to my life.

there is no house
like the house of belonging.

as embodied human beings we are intimately connected to our sense of place and the living spaces that we inhabit. once the magnitude of that connection is brought to light, the intimacy of the home as sanctuary becomes fertile ground for evolutionary self-exploration and acts as a creative vehicle for self-expression, all within the invaluable psycho-social elements of home that are readily available to us – a sense of refuge, security, safety, privacy, warmth, and heart of our living habitat.

there is a reciprocal, interconnected relationship that exists between human beings and their environments that begins at proprioception, where while in utero we identify how our bodies exist within space. we begin to sense the interdependence of movement and touch; how one cannot exist without the other; and how what we do has a direct, corresponding effect on our environment. it is in that fluid, kinesthetic, and quiet place that we begin our embodied evolution.

evolution is the process of discovering one’s relationship to the world, how one discerns what is important, deciding what is no longer needed, letting go of what does not serve in order to expand into a state of wholeness, and from there consciously moving into the next stage of life to begin the cycle again. it is a pattern of growth, of a gradual process of development, of forming our identity, of finding oneness with the soul.

evolution sanctuary™ supports the transitions from one home to another, as well as the desire for reinvention of existing living spaces stimulated by significant life events such as death, divorce, birth, change in job, or a simple sense of stagnant energy.

as we engage together in the evolution sanctuary™ process, i design a blueprint for co-creating your living environment and assist in setting goals that best serve your unique vision through:

  • deep, integrative time in the home;
  • creative process;
  • ritual and ceremony;
  • awareness and contemplation of beauty;
  • working with sacred objects;
  • communion with the natural world; and
  • embodiment practices that align home, body, and heart.
