"Sara's facilitation gifted me an opportunity to see the ways I keep myself from what I most long for in my life and by doing this with dear friends I've known for over fifteen years, we've deepened our own relationship, offering me a way to both understand better and have more compassion for the ways we all with the best of intentions create untenable structures in our lives. This embodied awareness is offering me new choices in how I engage with myself and others." 

--Steph Ryan


Completing my shadow work with Sara, the words that emerged were "Fierce Grace", the quality I felt in my interiority and in the field.  I was accompanied by friends that have held my feet to the fire for years. The container allowed for Sara's mastery to flow with precision, compassion and dynamic creativity.  The great mystery itself moved through her, transforming me and those I witnessed in this sacred work. I feel strength that is clean.  I sense blessing that is empowering and pure. I will return to the crucible again.

"Your place is mamesh chelkat Elohim Chayim - a land of the Living God. Cicero said that "Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtue, but the parent of all others," and this is how we feel about our time with you for Shabbat. It was an oasis on all levels and we feel grateful for your hospitality, sharing not only your home, but your beautiful hearts as well."
-- Ori Ha
