Hello. My name is pete adams, founder of The Sanctuary. Who am i? Before i tell you about the perhaps philosophical idea of Who I Am, i will share a little about my more recent life, on this planet earth.
For the first 40 years or so of my life i lived a fairly "normal" life, born in England, brought up alongside by brothers and sister by my parents who did their best to teach me about life. In 2005 i began to "awaken" to a different reality, begining to understand that there was more to life than the physical manifest world which is all that science, and our society teaches us about.
On this page (created in 2007) i tell more about my awakening journey, including a compilation of information links, audios and videos which helped me with these realisations, and more recently this page tells a little more.
I first started learning about natural ways of healing during a Yoga Teacher Training course at Agama Yoga in Thailand in 2008. The following year when a friend was diagnosed with cancer, i started researching about natural health and have not stopped since. Back then I created a webpage sharing much information and resources about a natural way to cure cancer which is still online.
While traveling through the US to Mexico in my RV, i shared with everyone who would listen about what i had been learning. In San Fransisco i interviewed Bill Henderson, author of Cancer Free, then continued my journey into Mexico, met with Shamans and experimented with plant medicines. At one point in La Paz, Baja California, having had a minor traffic accident with a Mexican oncologist, i was told by the oncologist who routinely took mammograms, that he knew they caused cancer!
From 2009 i lived mostly in Mazunte, Oaxaca whilst continuing to train with Agama Yoga & then with Hridaya yoga (using self-enquiry, who am i? question of Ramana Maharshi), taking many silent meditation retreats. In May 2012, having previously successfully tried MMS, i completed a training course to learn the correct use of MMS and became a "Minister of Health" for the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing.
In October 2012 i opened The Sanctuary in Puerto Escondido, as a supportive space to continue my spiritual growth, and an outlet to share about what i have learned and continue to integrate into my life. Since then i have had the opportunity to attend many trainings in modalities such as Reflexology, Raw Food preparation, Thai massage, The Art of Ascension, and many more. I have also been and continue to be blessed, by many visiting guests who act as mirrors of consciousness to me, offering me untold opportunities to learn lessons and continue to expand my growth in consciousness.
In 2013, at the end of a summer break in Europe, i took a trip to India to spend six weeks with an intuitive healer, Shruti Kher, where i learned amongst other things, the vital importance of clarity of needs and of fair energy exchange in relationships. At around the same time i discovered the book and process Radical Forgiveness, which i found to be so useful in both explaining the consciousness of oneness and helping to resolve virtually all issues, that i made it compulsory reading for staff at The Sanctuary.
More recently, while travelling in Portugal during the summer of 2015, i discovered The Presence Process, which provides a practical, gentle, integrative process to integrate previously unintegrated emotional trauma. The Presence Process is helping me enormously to respond from a place of love, as opposed to reacting from unconscious patterns created from childhhod trauma, and to help me to experience the presence which abides within all. The Presence process book is now required reading for staff at The Sanctuary. It is also a part of The Sanctuary's Holistic Healing Protocol and i recommend it to most people i meet. Below is a quote from a friend i shared it with:
Who am i really? My current belief is that, as opposed to my physical body which is just a vehicle for consciousness, i am an individuation of the one (All that Is, Holy Spirit, God, The Universe).
I am extremely grateful to be able to offer The Sanctuary as a space to facilitate self-healing and for all those who have made this possible and continue to do so by visiting as volunteers and guests.
ps. i like to sing -------------->
who am i?
Deep inside my heart i’ve got this
