Sophia’s Sanctuary is home to three Schools:

  • The Earthstar School of Choreocosmos and Cosmic and Sacred Dance developed by Robert Powell and managed by Linda Delman.
  • The Embodied Life School developed by Russell Delman.

Sophia’s Sanctuary provides various ways to cultivate love and wisdom. We offer new ways to work for the healing of the earth, and the healing of ourselves. We invite new ways to develop our relationship to star wisdom.

Each class, course, event and gathering is designed to invite participants into an encounter with the wisdom in themselves and an awareness of the living wisdom around us.

We are currently offering weekly classes in parenting, development of contemplative practices, sacred and cosmic dance, understanding the soul life, and the movement of attention.
