Driving Directions

Healing Temple Door  

Are you long overdue for a day where you simply... stop?

Do you need to slow down, recharge your batteries

...and get some perspective on your life? 

This is a guided, many-layered journey

that will have the feel of a day-long ritual.



If you are the kind of person 

to whom others look  

for direction, guidance, advice...

someone who is "on" for hours and days at a time,

showing up for others at work, at home, or as a community volunteer;

if you are someone who does not have a lot of time for

reflection or self-nourishment...

you are invited to join us.

Come "set it all down," for the day.


This will be your time to explore, shift, or otherwise transform
something that is "up" for you, in your life --
in a container that is held and tended by eight staff. 


You are invited to surrender into Receiving:
to be nourished, 
supported and witnessed
within an intimate group of fifteen men and women.

You will spiral many times
through the choreographed rhythm of 
the mostly-silent day:
You will receive mini-sessions from
five Healing Practitioners
who will help catalyze and integrate your experience;
you will reflect, alone, with your journal, and
you will have an opportunity to share in a small facilitated group.


This integrated, Body-Mind-Soul event is unique:
inspired by the relief, the peacefulness, and the gratitude of
over 140 women who have attended 
a "Day of Sanctuary for Women,"
Day of Sanctuary, for both men AND women.


If the thought of it makes you exhale... come.

A Meditative, BodyMind Day to Receive & ReCharge. 

Your Guide for the Day

Katherine: "I fell in love with bodywork over 30 years ago, and have been practicing it ever since.  Lately, I've been exploring how the process of transformation is accelerated by using multiple healing modalities – hands-on and hands-off – in a group setting: the highly structured yet spacious and flowing day, Entering the Healing Temple – A Day of Sanctuary for Women. After every single one of the eleven Healing Temples we have hostedat least one person has asked, "Are you going to do one of these for men? Or for men and women?" So, yes: it's finally time! This is a focused, private event for a small group of otherwise exceptionally busy men and women, who are excited by the prospect of having sacred time, space, and the non-chatty presence of community to relax, receive, and allow their body's innate intelligence to emerge. It's a solo journey, in the company of kindred spirits. And I'm thrilled to be facilitating the whole day." 

The Healing Temple Practitioners


JonathanGissel-PTHT  Jonathan Gissel, MSA, L.Ac.

Jonathan: "I started my journey with CranioSacral Therapy, eventually growing into Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine 25 years ago. One brief CST treatment opened my eyes to the wonders of our inner wisdom, and the ability to heal our body, mind, and spirit. Learning to blend the gentle, hands-on touch of CST with the vast wisdom and beautiful imagery of Classical Acupuncture has deepened my connection with family and patients. My practice and lifestyle is filtered through the lens of Eastern Medicine; I also use tools and insight from functional physiology. With this, I help you uncover and transform imbalances that may block your path to sustained health. At The Healing Temple, my intent is to help you continue your journey, and broaden your awareness of self through silently dialoguing with your inner wisdom.” 

Catherine Herrick  Catherine Herrick, LMP

Catherine: "Massage therapy is a way of life, for me. I am always thinking in terms of movement -- how I can help you move and feel more alive in your body. I have studied many modalities to facilitate people's healing; Reflexology is one of them. Reflexology -- working on the feet -- is an effective healing modality that addresses stress, and facilitates detoxification, muscle relaxation, improves circulation and balances the body. It encourages homeostasis, and leaves the systems in the body fully functioning and in natural equilibrium. I am a licensed massage therapist for people and for animals (one of my passions!). I believe that health is a natural state for our bodies.  My aim is to help you to become vibrant and to feel great."

JohnKenning-BAINBRIDGE  John Kenning

John: "I am so happy to be a part of this Day of Sanctuary. I love what I do in being of service to Spirit. In Port Townsend, this will come in the form of Akashic Record Readings — something I have been offering for 16 years. The Records contain a vibrational record of your soul and its journey since your inception. Their gift is the insight, balance, and access to self discovery you seek. In an Akashic Reading, you may ask, for instance, your purpose in life or what you need to know of your current situation, or for counsel as you look to your future. I am so rewarded as I witness Spirit's gift to you in the form of your Records’ content ...and honored to be a part of your day!”


  Shaina Noll Shaina Noll 

Shaina: "Although my primary work is as a singer/songwriter and recording artist, I've also offered Tarot readings professionally for over 30 years. I learned to read Tarot cards from Angeles Arrien, author of The Tarot Handbook, as part of my Masters program in Transpersonal Psychology. When we sit down together, we will use the Tarot cards to invite communication from your Soul, with the intent to support self-acceptance and the deepening of inner peace." 


CatherineSeiffert-PT  Catherine Seiffert, LMP

Catherine: "What makes me feel Alive is bodywork, body awareness and connecting with the Beings I'm working with. I love to share what I observe with my clients and help you understand your body in a logical, fun and inspiring way, while increasing ease and function. When you have knowledge, awareness and an understanding of what is going on in your body, it can help simplify the Mystery... and help unwind and change your experience. At The Healing Temple, I hope to bring you a deeper understanding, and to help you find joy in your awakening awareness."


There is one more Healing Practitioner coming
on board... stay tuned, to meet him!

"Come join us. We are honored to serve you."

The Keeper of the Flow

    Mara Lindbergh, LMP

Mara:  "I have been living in the land of embodied healing since 1993. I have been called deeply intuitive, a way-shower and a body tuner. One of my many passions is movement and flow -- through dance, Authentic Movement, and, most recently, completing the Soul Motion Teacher Training. Here in the Healing Temple, I walk in the footsteps of other Keepers of the Flow. As Tina Dawson, in Arcata, CA put it, 'I offer my deeply meditative presence, and will tend to the passage of time, maintaining the flow of our sacred space. I invite you to step into timelessness. Allow the spaciousness of healing to come into your bones.' I am honored to serve you in this way."
