Oh, Canada!

Celebrating a strong SALC presence in Canada.

We are very proud of our presence in Canada where Sacred Art of Living has been offering workshops and programs for several years.  Recently, these programs have become more accessible in Canada through partnerships with Star of the North Retreat Centre and Providence Renewal Center.  With our new virtual format you can take these programs from the comfort of your home.  We invite you to join us on this amazing journey.  Canadian Director, Debbie Doornbos, looks forward to answering your questions.

Debbie Doornbos of Edmonton, Alberta, Canadian Director

Debbie Doornbos joined the SALC Team in 2019 as the first-ever Canadian Director for the
Sacred Art of Living Center and is passionate about our mission and vision. She first met
Richard Groves in Los Angeles, California, at a religious education conference where he was
presenting a workshop.  After learning more about the programs at Sacred Art of Living Center,She began to participate in the Healing the Healers workshops and eventually the AnamcaraApprenticeship.  Determined that this training should be available in Canada, she set the“wheels in motion” and the rest is history.
