● Special focus on Land Art sculptures initially inspired by her studies with the Aboriginal People of Western Australia where she was a student of Dreamtime theory, the cosmology of Land and Spirit.

● Director of The Living Sculpture Project which produces large-scale land art installations designed from natural elements to inspire deeper connection, healing, education, and higher states of consciousness for all living beings.

Sarah is passionate about our connection with the earth and our health. It was through her own personal journey in trauma healing that working with the earth brought her back to life. She rediscovered her joy and vitality and loves to share with others all the generous ways our earth mother loves and heals us. Providing nutritious food, regulating the nervous system, herbal medicine, and even getting our hands dirty in the garden increases our serotonin levels which is a natural antidepressant and strengthens the immune system.

She is grateful to share her services at The Sanctuary.
