Seek Sanctuary is an 8-week online program of transformation. It is a trauma informed container that will take you as deep as you are ready and wanting to go on this liberation journey, with the teachings of Yoga as our guide and foundation.
To be clear, ‘Yoga’ is not synonymous with ‘movement’ and you do not need to have a movement practice or ‘be flexible’ to be in this program. Yoga is a school of moral philosophy that provides guidance on how to live and what to aim for. It offers a critical response to the harm that we see occurring in the world today.
This program is delivered in an intimate group setting (the maximum number of participants per round is 8). While your work in this program is individual, there is power created in the small community container as everyone is doing the same work and the same time; it is an undeniable resource of inspiration and support for all participants.
The intention of this container is to invite you into deeper relationship with all parts of yourself, to let go of conditioned pieces that no longer serve, and to experience alignment, embodiment and liberation.
CURRICULUM WILL BE POSTED WHEN NEXT INTAKE DATE IS ANNOUNCED.
Seek Sanctuary is for unlearners.
Unlearners acknolwedge information that they have unconsciously accepted as true in their life; they choose to give up numbness and start to feel.
Unlearners listen to and learn from people across lines of difference and gather new information.
Unlearners take action. They find their unique expression and role in fostering personal and collective liberation.
Unlearners acknowledge that they are never done (un)learning. They act in solidarity with people across lines of difference and continue to play and active and ongoing role in this work.
These characteristics of an Unlearner are inspired by the information shared in this Virtual Town Hall event.
If this sounds like you now, or the version of you that you are stepping into, then you are a likely a great fit for this program.
Please consider reading more about me (Tara) and my social location here so that you have an idea of the way in which I hold, navigate and lead space.
Please note that there will be a degree of unpacking whiteness and explaining western imperialism (aka white supremacy) in this space; this may be triggering for BIPoC folks and other people who hold marginalized identities who have known and felt the harsh impacts of this system for perhaps their whole lives. I name this not to discourage anyone from being a part of this transformational container; everyone is welcome in this space! I name this for transparency and in an effort to reduce harm.
The dates for the upcoming offering of Seek Sanctuary are TBD. Please sign up for the wait list above to be the first to know when dates are released as there are limited spots!

I loved that once the $1,200 payment was made, I knew I didn’t have to make any further purchase during this particular program (I’ve experienced programs – just like the “Free apps” on our iPhones – that would keep requiring me to pay and the cost kept adding up).
Towards the mid point of the program, I realized that this program is worth more than just $1,200!!!! Way more!!!! My gosh, the teachings and realizations I took away can’t be bought!
Receive is one month in the Liberation Membership space at no cost.
VALUE: minimum $245 CAD with opportunity for further bonuses
There is no obligation to maintain this membership past the first month.
To say that Seek Sanctuary changed my life sounds cliché, but it’s absolutely, truly, from the depths of my heart, accurate.
You take a deep dive in this program; it’s something that I hadn’t really done before in my life, really look inside myself to discover what my values are and where they came from. How I am a part of dominant culture and how I and people like me have been a part of oppression. It’s a scary thing to dive into. And she holds the space with empathy, compassion and no judgment. It’s absolutely beautiful.
You will walk away from this program with a new sense of self, a stronger sense of purpose, and an understanding of who you are and who you want to be in this world.

I am grateful for the opportunity to share this digital space with you. My name is Tara (they/them); I am a Yoga philosophy teacher and the creator of From The Hearth.
My vision is an uprising of The One Person Revolution, where every human being has the freedom to choose to take effective self-responsibility. As such, my offerings center on empowering clients to take charge of, and be responsible for, their own life.
What sets my work apart is the integration of Yoga philosophy with core concepts from Jyotiṣa (Vedic Astrology).
Jyotiṣa provides you with a timing system – an understanding of what karmas might be activated within you based on the planetary positions in the sky. This informs all of my offerings as I work with the themes of the cosmic cycles to address what might be especially alive in you in the present moment.
Another important and unique aspect of my offerings is my emphasis on creating trauma-sensitive spaces; I want to create room for you to (re)connect with your body and yourSelf.
Expressions of Yoga philosophy that I share include a harmony of Nonviolent Communication, Somatic Movement, and Prāṇāyāma (yogic breathing).
I have completed 500 certified hours in Yoga studies, and am currently in the midst of completing 175 continuing education hours. I am also in the process of becoming a Certified trainer in Nonviolent Communication. You can find out more about my experience here.
I look forward to connecting with you!
Seek Sanctuary helped me to find my liberation and peace within.
In Seek Sanctuary I was able to do so much dismantling work. We’re all made up of beliefs that come from ourselves, the society, the world, the family that we grew up with. And these beliefs are not necessarily who we actually are.
I’ve been asking this question of myself a lot. ‘Who am I? Who really am I when I remove all of the titles?’ I found all of my answers by participating in this program. I learned to let go of my sense of urgency.. this all-or-nothing mindset. I learned how to shed the layers that have been tying me down. I learned how to be very loving to myself, very gentle with myself, and to allow myself to rest.
I’ve learned so much from Tara in such a short period of time. I hope that this inspires and encourages you to take take this opportunity to invest in yourself.

The content that Tara gives in Seek Sanctuary- I’ve never seen it before.
We learned about our foundation, resource (time, energy, money) management, spiritual bypassing, cultural appropriation, dominant culture characteristics, additional social justice pieces, essential oil plant medicine and more.
I remember a moment where we explored the term ‘white supremacist,’ and I was mortified. That’s associated with horrible organizations! And to open that wound and actually look at it and what it is.. it really opened my eyes.
Also, I am so grateful to have learned the eight limbs of yoga – Aṣṭāṅga yoga – and how āsana (the movement practice of yoga) is just one piece! Knowing where practices come from is one of the most important things and Tara did such a beautiful job of sharing it.
