About Samasati Sanctuary
Samasati Sanctuary is a retreat center just outside of Asheville that is owned and stewarded by us as a couple.
We have long had a vision of creating a sacred space where people can come to return Home to themselves and remember a sense of the sacred within. When we found the land here, we knew that Life wanted this too. It is our great honor to share this beautiful “peace” of paradise with many others.
