What we offer guests

We are in strange times, times that have brought up questions we didn’t know we wanted to address. It has us asking the deeper questions of meaning that, once, might have been addressed in the religious institute in which we were members. Now many of us are not affiliated with organised religion but are seeking our own way through. In the Open Sanctuary we are open to all beliefs supporting each other in walking in alignment with them. We focus and respect the qualities and values that support understanding our belief and living them.

The Open Sanctuary offers us all a place for discovering the depth of these values; whilst embracing both the joy and challenge of living them.

Morning Office

You are invited to join us for a fifteen minute meditation, there is no pressure to be there everyday or to be on camera or to speak. We meet at 8am each day to start the day together in prayer, contemplation and meditation, sharing our intentions for the day. It is a time for reset and reconnection recalibrating your thoughts focussing you on your beliefs for the day.

Please contact us and we will forward the zoom link to you. We look forward to meeting you.


Seasonal Services

The Open Sanctuary offers quarterly services celebrating the seasons of the year and our gratitude for all aspects of this beautiful planet we share with all of nature. These will be announced in the ‘Latest News’ and will be close to the equinox and solstices.

You are very welcome to join us in gratitude and joy.


Sanctuary

Welcome to our Sanctuary, a place to find peace, to listen to a mantra chanted, or lose yourself in the cherry blossom tree. Settle into this place and find somewhere to just Be and Pause.

The Open Sanctuary offers a course, The Way, to refine and focus the spiritual exploration


The Way of the Open Sanctuary is transpersonal development experienced through the medium of meditation, contemplation, prayer, shared experiences and trust in a safe and sacred place taking you deeper in your spiritual journey.

A year-long mentored program introducing you to the qualities of the Open Sanctuary. This program brings together the component parts of the Mystic-Healer book and helps you explore, experience and embrace them in the context of your personal needs and experiences. You become your own Souls Apprentice discerning where your attention needs to be focused, as well as being a member of a community sharing the journey together. Each month builds on the previous month, inviting you to slowly, over time, change your life to be in alignment with your beliefs and to live in your deepest authenticity. This course is the launch pad for you in every aspect of life and as a part of the Community of the Open Sanctuary.
