Sara Salam

"My focus is on living what I teach and for me to be an expression of my healthy, healed and joyful soul in all aspects of my life, while contributing to a vibrant earth at the same time.


The wisdom, tools and techniques I pass on to others come from my training as well as my personal experiences. However, I am aware that the tools that worked for me may not necessarily help another soul. I am also aware that some of the tools that do not work for me, may actually help you. I also realize that learning something for my personal healing and growth does not automatically mean that I can pass it on to another soul. In order to pass on tools or techniques, I must have tried them out on my own and gained the wisdom behind the teachings, as well as have received the proper training.

Knowing my expertise, gifts and strengths is as essential to serving others with authenticity, integrity and impeccability, as is being aware of my limits. Therefore, I refer individuals and groups to other experts whenever and wherever it is healthy and helpful to do so for all involved.

The soul's journey is ever ongoing. To be a soul in our healthy, healed and naturally vibrant state requires steady awareness and daily work. It is an honor to support you in your learning, healing and growth as I tend to mine at the same time, with love." ~Sara
