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 Practioners and Certified in Shamanic Energy Medicine. This is our passion and our life's work which inpires us to bring our knowledge of energy and healing to all who visit Sanctuary.

We live on Martha's Vineyard year round and this Summer are celebrating the 18 year anniversary of Sanctuary.  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
