Illuminated Heart Sanctuary is a safe place to recharge and restore, and to explore your inner worlds. Your journey may unfold at your own pace, while you are nestled in the beautiful natural setting of Western North Carolina’s mountains.

Smoky Mountain Vacation – A vacation in nature that will help you unwind and connect to your higher self while enjoying the beauty of the world around you.

Shamanic Breathwork™ - Includes experiential ceremony at a sacred site, walkabout in scenic forest and a healing bodywork session. This is a fun spiritual retreat for a couple or a group of friends.

Back Pain Relief Care – Have you added up the cost of back surgery, pain medications, co-pays and deductibles and yet your back pain is still present? Are you ready to release back pain along with the difficulties it brings to your life?


Life Change (Hypnosis) Retreat - Is anxiety getting in the way of clear thinking and/or causing stress on your body? Is it becoming too difficult to stop smoking? Is excess weight stopping you from following your dreams? Do you want your life back from addiction to gambling, internet porn, recreational drugs, etc.? Is anger over a person in your life eroding your health, happiness and relationships? With the successful 5 PATH™ healing technique, you will gain mastery and control of your destiny to live the life you have been longing for.

Create Your Own Retreat - Life is full of changes. Sometimes we are not even sure how we ended up where we are. If you are at the crossroads in life and wondering which way to go next, a personal retreat may just be what you need. Personal retreats allow us to go inside and listen to the soul’s calling. Are you ready to take some time for yourself? Do you have some specific goals in mind? You may design your own retreat at Illuminated Heart Sanctuary.
