“Gardens, art, and whimsy combine to offer a place of solace — and delight
Three Sisters Sanctuary in Goshen ‘got started because of grief,’ its founder says. But ‘instead of choosing the dark side of grief, I chased the light.’ And visitors can take it all in.”

Three Sisters Sanctuary invites you to heal the heart, mind and body through the Merging of Art and Nature.

This is a space in service to others to receive and disperse Life’s gifts and energies.

Challenges, hurts and hardships are shared and lessened here. Expansive arms of stone are born from the Land of Milk and Honey.

Its lungs breathe in winds that lift birds to flight and exhales the sweet fragrances of flowers and marsh.

Its blood pumps waters that have escaped winter’s freeze and eluded summer’s heat.

Its belly burns with fire, belching out long-churned, sometimes forgotten passions.

Its body of fauna and forest provide companionship that remind us that though we may at times feel weary or tired, we are never alone.

A Sanctuary for ALL.
