Art Exhibit S.B. Healing Sanctuary Register

Pacifica Gradute Institute is pleased to recognize the creation of the Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary, an independent initiative that highlights many of the ideas featured in the Imagination and Medicine Conference.

Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary

The Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary is envisioned as a small scale residential integrative therapies center based on ancient knowledge and cutting-edge scientific research. The Center brings particular focus to the proven potential and healing inspiration of dreams. Dreams give individuals access to a form of intelligence originating deep inside the brainstem, where signals travel up to the cortex and down through the neuro-endocrine system to affect the body at a micro-cellular level. This activity, as natural and innate as the human heartbeat, has extraordinary therapeutic potential. Dream work is widely thought to trigger the body’s own self-healing response. As serious illness may traumatize the patient, it has been scientifically demonstrated that dreaming integrates traumatic experience in a healthful manner.

The treatment at the Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary is geared towards clients who have been diagnosed with a serious illness and are early in their conventional treatments, people who are currently in remission and wish to keep their remission robust, people with chronic illness who want to move forward, people suffering addictions who have been in remission for a year or more, clients whose eating habits endanger their health, or people under stress who want to promote health enhancement and prevent illness.

Working in tandem with conventional medicine, the Sanctuary offers clients a variety of therapies deemed appropriate to the individuals’ particular health needs. Healing approaches and treatments available include dreamwork, acupuncture, diet and nutrition, massage, chiropractic therapy, watsu, creative arts, theater, health-based yoga, music, mindfulness meditation, and reflective writing. Carefully crafted into an individualized treatment plan, each modality, when used, enhances creative imagination and triggers the release of endogenous healing responses.

For more information, visit or phone the Sanctuary’s Clinical Director, Jill Fischer, MS, APRN, BC, at 877.216.4610 for a free consultation. There is no obligation, and you will receive an assessment of how the Sanctuary might be of help.

The Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary is not in any way affiliated with the Sanctuary Psychiatric Centers of Santa Barbara.
