PeaceSanctuary began with the creation of
an 11 circuit / Chartres labyrinth on the grounds of UTS Interfaith Seminary in Barrytown, NY in
2002. A second 3-circuit labyrinth was added in 2005, dedicated to peace in the
Middle East. From 2003, candlelight, full moon walks were held every month
along with many other community walks, such as those celebrating Earth Day,
marking the changing seasons, the International Day of Peace, and Healing the
Waters of the Earth.
In 2009 Gillian Corcoran, founder of
PeaceSanctuary, moved away from the area.
Cecilia St. King tended the labyrinth and hosted labyrinth walks - deep
gratitude to Cecilia - until she too moved and began touring as a Peace
Troubadour. The organized community labyrinth walks are on hiatus, although the
labyrinth is still available for people to walk. If you feel called to host
labyrinth walks, please call Gillian at 845-417-1345.
Through her work in spiritual direction, hospital chaplaincy and energy healing, Gillian realized how we all need to create our own inner
peace sanctuaries. While it is wonderful to be able to visit a peaceful site, we
need to be able to tap into inner peace within ourselves at a moment’s notice,
wherever we may be. To this end, Gillian partners with people in the creation
of inner sanctuaries of peace.
Gillian serves as a spiritual mentor offering compassionate listening, contemplative
silence and guided meditation. To facilitate the healing process Gillian draws upon various healing modalities including
Reiki, the Emotion Code, and Emotional Freedom Technique, and utilizes Bach
Flower Remedies and essential oils. Gillian offers workshops and retreats utilizing labyrinths and the creative arts focusing on various themes, (for eg forgiveness and letting go, new beginnings, loving and cherishing ourselves). Gillian works with people long distance, via Skype and telephone, as well as in person in Santa Fe, NM where she now resides.
