What we're about
We host meditations and group events that help you experience mindfulness, meditation, gratitude, forgiveness, relaxation, body scan, breathwork, energy work, healing, connection, manifesting, taming the ego, autonomy, and other related experiences.
Welcome to the Sierra Vista & Southeast Arizona Mindfulness Meetup Group - Also known as: Sanctum Now. This group facilitates intentional sacred spaces and authentic experiences.
The meditation events, classes, workshops, mini-vacations, and spiritual and mindful experiences are held both indoors and outside.
We meet in Sierra Vista in Southeast Arizona, along with other areas and towns including: Benson, Tombstone, Bisbee, Vail. A small meditation center is being built at a desert location to offer a sacred place. Ask Ethan about it for more details or if you would like to help.
We are a spiritual but non-religious group.
You will likely enjoy this group if you agree with the majority of these ideas:
- There is a a Source known by many names such as Divine, God, Tao, Brahman, Consciousness, YHWH, Jesus, Love, the Universe, or the Mystery.
- Humans have the ability to connect with this Divine or have it within themselves, or are an emanation of, a part of, or a manifestation of it.
- Sacred time and sacred space are important.
- It is ok not to have answers.
- It is good to know thyself or awaken to the human condition
- Intentional awareness and mindful actions are important.
- It is good to understand and manage the lower ego.
There is no guru, we do not follow any human or group... we practice and apply ideas and healing activities from sources such as:

I ask that everyone to be humble and kind, and welcome everyone from any background. There is no preaching or dogma allowed. All faiths are sacred, but not one of them is exclusively correct or 'the only way'. It is ok to cite or quote from various sources but no preaching, no exclusive 'one path' religious talk, no hidden intentions of evangelizing or solicitation.
Crying is allowed.
This is a sacred spiritual-safe place.
You must give people space and allow each person their own sacred space and experiences. Every person is different.
