We've heard it said we teach/offer/share what we most need to learn.
It's no coincidence that here at the Sanctuary
Our Purpose is to guide and support one another further along on their personal journey.
Our Mission is to provide the space for all beings to thrive.
Why? Because all of us on Team BWS need it too. By serving others, we help ourselves in the process. Magical blessing.
The services, workshops, writing, recipes...opportunities we offer are to help you nourish - and in the process connect with- body mind spirit.
Body offerings include: massage, facials, energy healing and the occasional yummy recipe from Steph's kitchen like this protein smoothie here.
Mind offerings include meditation and yes, yoga therapy.
Spirit offerings include all of the above...plus events like the Love Meditation happening next week.
What will you choose? Whatever you decide, choose YOU.
Give Love, Give Reiki Bronxville
We are excited to announce starting Saturday, February 17th, 2018 Heather (bio below) will be joining team BWS to offer Reiki.
Reiki is a Japanese energetic healing technique that works holistically on the body, mind and spirit from the inside out. Reiki energy breaks up and flushes out energy blockages, often built up over time, whether from past trauma, toxins in our food /environment, lack of movement, or chronic patterns of negative thinking or emotions - which we know by now affect us on a cellular level.
Reiki re balances the body’s complex energy systems and opening the channels for the body to heal itself.

Heather has been a student of holistic wellness since she was 14 years old. Before she even knew what the term “reiki” was, she was practicing it on her friends. She is passionate about helping clients reduce stress and anxiety through her energy work.
Heather has gained knowledge from some of the most experienced teacher trainers in the country (Reiki: Jeff Migdow, Brett Bevell, and Libby Barnett. Yoga: Devarshi Steven Hartman, Jovinna Chan, and Lakshmi Voelker).
When she’s not practicing reiki or on her yoga mat, Heather enjoys seeing live music. Taken from the lyrics of her favorite song by The Allman Brothers, she hopes her sessions will “let your Soul Shine”!
Valentine's Day is 2 weeks away. It's one of our favorite occasions here at the Sanctuary.
We love to love & Valentine's Day is a reminder of why we are here. More than ever, we believe taking care of ourselves is an act of self-love that keeps on giving.
From our own self-love, all other love grows. In fact, the ability to nourish ourselves first enables us to effectively (aka without resentment) nourish others.
And as Stephanie writes, you must Save Yourself First.
Here are 4 Ways to Plug into our LOVE:
1. Treat Yourself to a Sanctuary Service.

Want to know one of the most effective ways to restore and renew yourself?
Slow down and do what makes you feel good. Maybe it's finally making those dinner/vacation/coffee plans with a dear one. Or perhaps it's shutting off the phone for a day...or even a 1/2 day. Maybe it's getting some Sanctuary!!
Our Restore & Renew Package is a great way to really slow it down and save moneywhile you deeply nourish you. The package includes: 75 Minute Massage with Reflexology & 45 Minute Wellness Facial, $220 ($20 savings).
Massage is one of the oldest healing modalities. It helps relax muscles, soothe aches and pains, release energy blockages, and rejuvenate body, mind & spirit.
Reflexology clears energetic pathways, improves circulation, brings calm and balance.
A Sanctuary facial is like no other. It's deeply nourishing from the inside out.

Calling All Em-paths & Body-workers...
Walking With Protection Workshop
Saturday, September 16th, 2017
Does evil exist? What is dark energy?
Do you absorb other people's negative
energy & emotions leaving you feeling drained?
How do we protect ourselves from this intrusive energy?
What are the signs you need to know about when it comes to protecting your energy??
Feeling exhausted all the time, no matter how much sleep you get or how well you eat is a sign your energy needs to be cleared and that you will benefit from working with protection tools.
Also, radical changes in behavior, especially negative changes that seem "beyond" your control is another sign.
This workshop is especially helpful for sensitive people, em-paths, health and wellness professionals, body-workers and anyone who deals with individuals and groups on a regular basis.
Don't ignore the signs! It doesn't take much to clear and get back on track. Once you learn, you'll be able to do on-going "maintenance".
In her workshop, Stephanie will discuss all of this & you will learn:
*How evil/dark energy works*
*The ways we break our own protections*
*Shamanic psycho-spiritual protection tools & techniques to protect you from harmful energies when engaging with other people's energy fields *
*How to clear dark energy*
Kindly Note: Class is limited to 8 people.
Payment of $65 is due upon registration.

Finding Our Way, by Stephanie
In the next few weeks, many of us will experience "transitions" as we head back to school, back to work, back to life…back to "reality".
In addition to this time of transition and change, many of us are feeling the heightened energy around us. It's real. For some, it's really hard to ignore and/or overcome.
During these times of transition and heightened energy sometimes we lose our way. We may be riding the roller coaster of feelings: depressed, overwhelmed, tired, confused, afraid...anything but relaxed!
How do we Find Our Way?
By returning to emotional balance...equanimity.
As I talk about in Chapter Two of my book Reclaiming JOY, the emotional roller coaster is not sustainable and keeps us stuck. We react and often cause more turmoil.
This simple practice, called BRFWA, brings us back to a relaxed state where our emotions are in balance.
From this place of emotional balance or equanimity, we are able to ride the emotional wave without drowning in it. In equanimity we find our way back to peace and clarity. Once clear, we are able to take action that keeps us on the path of peace.
Breathe: As a wave of emotion comes over you, slow down your breath. Allow your breath to flow freely in and out.
Relax: As you slow down your breath, your mind and body will begin to relax. Soften your muscles, let go of mental and physical tension.
Feel: As you relax, you are able to soften into what you are feeling. Stay open to the sensations and emotions moving through you in this moment.
Watch: While feeling, you watch your experience closely, neither grasping what is pleasant nor pushing away what is painful.
Allow: As you watch, you allow the process to unfold. You accept yourself and your experience exactly as it is, dropping the need to change it in any way.
BRWFA is the practice of being present. Being present is what we learn during meditation.

Being Heard by Stephanie
Last week we talked about the importance of energetic balance and
energy healing as part of on-going self-care.
This week the theme of self-care continues as it relates to whether or not we feel we are "being heard".
Why? Quite simply, if we don't feel heard, our needs will go unmet. Over time, this drains us and we may give up asking altogether. When we do this, we invalidate what's important to our well-being.
For those of us who are em-paths, we may not even be asking at all! Perhaps we are so sensitive that we are afraid to ask. Whatever the case, not being heard isn't sustainable or enjoyable. Open, honest, respectful communication - also known as conscious communication is the foundation for all healthy & enjoyable relationships...and for life!
If you're looking to be heard, consider attending my communication workshop next week. You'll learn a model of conscious communication to help you get your message across, and get what you want, without all the drama both in personal and professional relationships. Details here.
We have a variety of specialists and people who offer a wonderful perspective on topics that relate to our services and clients' needs.
