We can’t wait to welcome you to these special healing gardens so that you may feel the power of the standing stones, walk the flower strewn paths, and marvel at the artwork! Let down your burdens, enter our world, and enjoy the Three Sisters Sanctuary!

5/08/20 – Richard would like to thank you all for the kindness of your donations. It’s hard to imagine doing what we do without sponsorship.

4/15/20 – In compliance with the Massachusetts mandate issued by Gov. Baker to immediately close all non-essential businesses, Three Sisters Sanctuary is temporarily closed.  We completely depend on funds from admissions and events to maintain the Sanctuary, funds that are now gone.

Please help us sustain Three Sisters Sanctuary by participating in a special GoFundMe campaign for small businesses affected by the COVID-19 Virus that will match the first $500 raised. All donations will go directly to maintain and sustain the Sanctuary at this most critical time.  We are so grateful for your support during this critical time. Previously scheduled events are currently canceled or indefinitely postponed.

We will continue to provide updates on our website, in our newsletters and on facebook and instagram. If you have not subscribed already, please email us to join: [email protected]

Support the Sanctuary

The Three Sisters Sanctuary has been an oasis of beauty, art and healing for over a quarter of a century. I began this labor of love and devotion to heal myself and soon realized that part of my healing process came from sharing the Sanctuary with others. It became a force, a powerful dual energy combining nature and creativity that touched spirits and healed souls.

Over the years, people of all ages and walks of life have been moved by this healing force. They have celebrated and mourned and returned again. They have left mementos and touchstones of their lives in the nooks and crannies of the Goshen stones. They have felt extraordinary peace by connecting with our Earth’s transforming life force. Now, more than ever, we need healing, we need a sanctuary.

We are so grateful for the support we have received from so many of you during this very difficult time. Although we are allowed to open, we are still facing steep financial setbacks due to the cancellation of dozens of events this year. Please continue to support us and share with others. Thank you so much!

The temporary closure of Three Sisters Sanctuary due to COVID-19 has doubly impacted us. Not only are we left without the funds to maintain the grounds and gardens, we are saddened that it cannot provide respite to those in need of healing during these stressful months. With your help, we can continue to sustain Three Sisters Sanctuary for the benefit of our entire far-reaching community and be ready to re-open as soon as we are allowed. If you are able, please make a donation on our gofundme page.

The Three Sisters Sanctuary is currently participating in a Go Fund Me campaign specifically designed for small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic. It pledges a $500 matching grant if we reach at least $500 through donations. All donations, no matter the amount, are greatly appreciated and every penny will go directly to maintain and sustain the Sanctuary at this most critical time. I am so very grateful for your support and generosity. Together, we can ensure the Three Sisters Sanctuary will continue to be an incomparable garden of inspiration and healing, a true sanctuary for all.
