The Self-Care Sanctuary is an online sacred space that offers on-going inspiration and nourishment to women who want to strengthen their self-care and soul-care practices as a way into deeper ease, more joy, and simple abundance.
Come join us. It’s time to nurture and deepen your practice.
Hello SELF-COMPASSION, CURIOSITY, AND NON-JUDGMENT
The Self-Care Sanctuary invites you to step into the expansive cathedral of your heart and nurture your practice of taking exquisite care of yourself. It’s about devoting time – on a consistent basis – to explore practical tools and nourishing concepts that can support a life that feels aligned and deeply nurturing to you.
We believe our soul’s greatest desire is to practice love in all things, including the practice of loving ourselves. We also believe an on-going intentional practice of caring for ourselves while also embracing the holy mess of our lives is some of the bravest, worthiest work we can do.
The monthly support and guidance inside The Self-Care Sanctuary is wholehearted, real life support. It’s about slowly but surely releasing any hustle energy or need for perfection and replacing it with loving, patient, courageous care for your whole self. Of course, there is plenty of celebrating and deep deep joy along the way.
Come join us. Your heart will thank you.

How it works + what’s included
The moment you sign up, you’ll receive immediate access to the online + virtual Self-Care Sanctuary, where you’ll find instant access to all the goodness below. Whether you join toward the beginning of the month or the end, the entire month’s content will be waiting for you. You are welcome to join anytime.
All are welcome.
Come As You Are Conversations
Each month, you’ll get exclusive access to an in-depth, honest conversation where Lacy and I introduce and explore the month’s theme. We’ll bring our truth, our stories, what we’ve learned, what we’re currently practicing, the pivotal moments that changed everything, our collected insights, resources, and more.
You bring your journals, open hearts, and willingness to refine and grow your practice. Our conversations will vary in topics each month, but you can always expect radically honest and refreshing conversations about what it looks like to thrive, heal, celebrate, fumble, and love ourselves through a thoughtfully guided self-care practice that sustains our being in the world.
Raise Your Vibration Meditations
Each month, Lacy will lead you through a recorded, theme-specific, guided meditation that can be used throughout the month to support your self-care practice. The meditations are short but potent and are intentionally crafted to raise your frequency, allowing you deeper direct access to your soul/true self. These meditations will help you know and connect with yourself on a deeper level so that you are inspired to take exquisite care of yourself.
You can listen to the meditation every single day or a few times per week – whatever feels loving and supportive to you. Lacy will also share basic meditation suggestions along the way to help you get the most out of cultivating this worthy practice.
A Live Self-Care Q + R Gathering
Each month, you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to join our Live Self-Care Q + R (question + response) Gathering, hosted via Zoom. You’ll have a chance to directly ask us questions – anything goes – and we’ll dive deep with our responses, sharing stories of what has worked for us, what hasn’t, our resources, favorite books, healers, and more. We’ll always record the live event so you can watch it in the online Sanctuary anytime.
Soul Work Homework
By definition, a practice is something that needs to be repeated, with love. Each month, Soul Work Homework will be offered not as a directive, but as a loving suggestion to help you engage and deepen your practice. It will most often be a series of thoughtful journal prompts, encouraging and helpful concepts to consider, specific tools to try for the month, book recommendations, inspiring people to check out, and more.
If you complete your Soul Work Homework each month, we’re certain your practice will begin to feel more expansive, alight with soul-level nourishment.
Nourish Your Soul Mantra Prints
Each month, you’ll receive an exclusive – created just for you and available only to you – downloadable mantra art print, created by Kelly Rae. Much like the monthly meditation, it is meant to be used and seen regularly throughout the month.
We believe in the power of words. What you say and think starts to shape your reality and something as simple as downloading a gorgeous mantra print, placing it somewhere you’ll see it each day, and reading it daily can begin to reprogram the mind and shape your life with effortless ease.
An Optional, Private Facebook Group.
We’re not meant to do this work alone. For those of you wanting extra support, there will be an optional Facebook Group full of women bravely sharing their self-care triumphs, struggles, and transformations. And they’ll lovingly witness yours, too. This optional online community will be monitored and held within a framework of healthy guidelines and boundaries, so you can expect to be supported without overt advice giving, shouty suggestions, or criticisms. Just, “We see you. We hear you. We believe in you.”
Come join us. It’s time to nurture your practice.
We invite you to step further into your practice, to slow down, to breathe deeper, to treat yourself like you are the guest of honor of your own life. Inside you lives a cathedral of brilliant, radiant light. The Self-Care Sanctuary is a place for on-going monthly inspiration and nourishment so that you can not only deepen your connection to your light, but fuel up so you can sustainably radiate it out into the world.
The moment you sign up, you’ll receive immediate access to the online + virtual sanctuary. Whether you join toward the beginning of the month or the end, the entire month’s content will be waiting for you.
All are welcome.
The Self-Care Sanctuary is a collaboration between me, Kelly Rae Roberts, and my long-time friend, Lacy Young.
I’m a mixed-media artist, author, entrepreneur, mother, seeker, and more. But perhaps most importantly, I have a master’s degree in Social Work (MSW) and practiced as a clinical medical social worker for years before I began making art. I think of my art business as a perfect marriage between my social work ideology and my creativity; both have been guiding lights along my self-care journey.
Creating a life of joy, abundance, and ease while keeping my self-care and soul-care practices front and center has been some of the hardest work I’ve ever done. Staying connected to my work and family (hello, partnership and motherhood!) while staying connected to – and caring for – myself has come with challenges, and it has always led to the kind of breakthroughs that lead to more joy, more freedom, and more connection.
I’m grateful and deeply excited for the opportunity to support other women by sharing my self/soul-care stories and lessons I’ve learned along the way.
My co-creator and long-time friend, Lacy Young, is a transformation coach, meditation retreat leader, and powerful space holder.
Her journey of self-care and healing has taken her all over the globe. From a solo soul-journey to Bali, where she was mentored in ancient meditation practices, to a trek to the Amazon jungle to explore plant medicine with a Shipibo-Conibo shaman, her travels have led her back to one place – her heart.
To Lacy, self-care is a lifestyle decision. She says, “Modern-day culture wants us to believe a bubble bath and a chocolate bar will mend the deep wounds we feel within, but I know differently. I have seen again and again with myself and my clients that introspection and a deep understanding of self leads to greater care and deeper peace than anything in our external world ever could.”
She continues, “My hope for you is that through the Self-Care Sanctuary you become deeply in touch with your own heart and desires, that you come to easily define what self-care means to you personally, and that you make a commitment to walk that path. Why? Because you are worth it, because joy is your birthright, and because you deserve to be a priority in your life.”
Questions? We have answers.
How will I access the monthly content?
On the day that you join, and then again on the first of every month that you are an active member, you will receive an email with a link and password to access to our private, virtual sanctuary. Once inside the Self-Care Sanctuary, you will find all of the month’s content.
You can access and visit the online sanctuary as much as you’d like throughout the month. You will also have forever access to it should you want to go back and revisit the content in the future.
Do I have to join the private Facebook group?
No, you do not need to join the FB group – it’s 100% optional. If you do join, you can rest assured that it is a closed group, so it’s truly private. Only members can see what you post in the group. Confidentiality is important for us too.
How does the billing work?
The Self-Care Sanctuary is a monthly membership, which means when you sign up, you’ll be billed for the first month of your membership and receive instant access to that month’s content. After that, you’ll be automatically billed each month, on the same day as your original purchase. For example, if you sign up on the 12th of the month, you’ll be billed on the 12th of the following month.
You can cancel your membership at any time.
What do I have to do to make sure my monthly membership continues?
Not a thing. Your membership fee will be automatically charged every month via the same payment method you enter when you sign up.
What’s your cancellation policy?
You can cancel your membership at any time. Once you cancel, you will be removed from our private Facebook group (if you joined it). You will also stop receiving any new content. All the content you received while your membership was active will still be yours to keep forever. If you wish to cancel your membership, please log into your account here, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does the live Q+R (question + response) work? Can I ask my questions Live?
Each month, we’ll host a Live Q+R Session via Zoom, an online web conferencing platform (we love it!). You can ask your questions during the live event and we’ll respond right then. We’ll also respond to the questions that come in throughout the month via the comments section of our online sanctuary.
If you can’t make it to the Live Q+R Session, no worries. We’ll have the recording of it available in our online sanctuary where you can watch it anytime you’d like as you’ll have forever access to it.
My friend / sister / book club ladies would love this. Can I share my access to the sanctuary with them?
I love your generous spirit, and the answer is no. If you have friends + family you think would benefit from The Self-Care Sanctuary please send them the URL to this page and invite them to sign up. Perhaps you could be self-care accountability buddies! Surrounding ourselves with friends + family who are also seeking to deepen their self-care practice is a great way to stay connected to your own path while deepening connections with others. If you’re friends + family choose not to join The Self-Care Sanctuary, we can’t encourage you enough to start conversations with them about all that you are exploring each month in the sanctuary as we’re certain it will inspire in-depth inquiry work for all.
And on a related note… Your membership gives you personal and individual access only. Translation = Please don’t copy and share any of our written/recorded content with others, post them to online hosting sites like Soundcloud or Youtube, sell them to others, display them publicly, or use them for commercial or personal gain in any way.
I have more questions. How can I reach you?
