OUR STORY

Sacred Art of Living is a non-profit Institute for Caregiver Education and Spiritual Formation.  In 1996 Richard and Mary Groves created the Sacred Art of Living as a living school for the support of all persons in the helping and healing professions.  Their vision brought together a remarkable lifetime of experiences in multi-media communication, health care education, professional development and end-of-life spirituality.  As a result, more than twenty thousand persons across North America, Europe, Asia and India have graduated from their life-changing seminars including the Sacred Art of Living & Dying series, The Anamcara Project and the Soul & Science for Caregivers.   Sacred Art of Living programs have received international acclaim for impacting both the personal and professional lives of care providers.
