Our Story

Welcome Friends, we’re so glad you’re here!

In 1995 we created our first retail venture, an inspirational store in upstate NY. It was a vocation born from the passing of a beloved family member which deepened our spiritual journey.

We knew from our first visit to Martha’s Vineyard, that someday we would make this beautiful island our home. We fell in love with and were deeply inspired by the natural beauty and simplicity of living. In 2002, we made the big move to The Vineyard to pursue our dream of creating a spiritual store called Sanctuary.

As spiritual seekers, we strive to deepen our awareness of life and our understanding of our place in it. We received Shamanic Training and Rites with Alberto Villoldo, Marcela Lobos and The Q'ero Shamans of Peru and are graduates of The Four Winds Society Light Body School. We are Shamanic Energy Practitioners and Certified in Shamanic Energy Medicine. This is our passion and our life's work which inspires us to bring our knowledge of energy and healing to all that we do.

After 18 years of owning and operating our dream retail store Sanctuary, we have stepped into a new chapter of our lives. This past January we sold our shop and are now focusing fully on our energy work and growing this new online brand, The Life Divine.

We are filled with gratitude when we reflect on all of the kind souls we have come to know and connect with throughout the years. As Earthkeepers, we are deeply honored to live and work on this beautiful island, a sacred part of Pachamama (Mother Earth) that we call home and love so dearly.

We are eternally grateful for the love and support of our beautiful family and friends, and especially the great blessing of loving parents. The Life Divine is dedicated to the loving memory of Mildred Imbimbo and Ferdinando Chiaravalle.

With Peace and Warm Blessings,
Frank and Rita Imbimbo
