"Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements." -Napoleon Hill
What is purpose?
What does it mean to live "on purpose"?
Purpose as we understand and experience it is our dharma, our work in the world...the meaning of why we were born and what we came to here to "do".
Living on purpose means to be interested in our individual purpose and commit to the work of bringing it forth.
Not a small topic! However, knowing our purpose and then aligning it with our inner body in order to connect it to the outer world is what brings fulfillment.
In a noisy world, it may seem hard to do this. What's harder in the long run is not doing it.
How does our purpose connect to Sanctuary?
As some of you know, when we (Peter and Stephanie) opened Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary in 2011, we intentionally chose the word, "sanctuary" instead of "spa".
Simple. Peter and I had a vision, a burning desire to connect our inner purpose with an outer expression of that purpose. Inner purpose meaning our desire to support others on their life journey.
We set out with a vision to provide awesome massage, body-work, and facials, We also wanted to create a healing space.
Over the last 11 years, we have stuck to our vision and have added services such as yoga, meditation, energy healing, and mentoring. We have evolved and will continue to.
Our vision was and still is to create an environment that feels like a Sanctuary: peaceful, safe, joy-filled, inspirational and educational...a kind and compassionate place people come to renew and nourish body, mind and spirit. A place to experience Sanctuary.
Worth it? Every moment.
We can't help doing it! It's why we were born. Whether we are writing an email, answering the phone, providing a service, purchasing candles, cleaning the bathroom...we do it all with purpose.
We are writing this to open up the dialogue about living on purpose. We are writing to inspire you to uncover and/or deepen into your purpose.
You may be thinking. "I have no idea what my purpose is!". That's okay. It's never too late to discover it. Keep in mind your purpose is what you must do. Maybe it's feeding your family, leading an organization, tending a garden, or anything in between. There's no wrong answers.
The path we choose to execute our purpose is the "how". Our how continues to evolve and grow as we do. In our case the "how" includes everything we offer from our services and workshops to our newsletter, writing, and snacks. It also includes how we do what we do. Meaning, how we are being (joyful, grateful, kind) in our doing. Everything we do is mindfully guided by our purpose. Especially Peter's jokes!!!
As we continue to evolve and walk this path with you, our offerings will expand.
We are deeply grateful to you and for you. Thank you for allowing us to share our vision and live on purpose. It's a pleasure and a privilege.
What's coming up for you?
Feel free to email us and share your purpose!!! We support you.
