DO YOU LONG FOR DEEP CONNECTION
with other women like you?
Are you feeling disconnected from yourself and your true purpose?
Her Sanctuary is a sacred space to connect with yourself and other women. It's an online and in-person membership community that combines sacred practice, feminine spirituality, and sisterhood. We gather to remember our truth and rise as the women we are called to be.
You are a soulful woman committed to living your truth, and you on a mission to lead a more authentic life. You are devoted to your family, work, and community. You are ready to unleash your impact and purpose into the world, the problems is, you get lost in all the responsibilities and expectations of life. You too easily fall back into patterns of self-sacrifice and self-doubt.
You long for quiet space where you can turn down the noise and expectations around you, and hear your own voice. You dream of having time to yourself to lay down whatever you are carrying, and simply listen to your truth.
You are a spiritual seeker. You've been on a growth journey for a while, and you crave deep conversations with people who get it. Real talk. You are no longer interested in the surface. You want depth.
You dream of a community of women, a sisterhood who speaks your language. A place to call home. A place to let go of all the weight you carry.
Welcome home Sister, you are not alone.
I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED A COMMUNITY LIKE , ALTHOUGH I HAVE ALWAYS FOR IT.
— LAURA, mother and grandmother
We need a sacred home to call our own.

does this feel like you?
You are longing for more. You want more life, more ease, more health, more connection, more depth, more joy, and more authenticity. You want to bring your purpose into the world and be more of your true self.
You feel isolated and alone. It's hard to find like-minded women and community that feels real. These last few years have taken a toll, and you need true connection.
You feel disconnected from yourself. From your body, your voice, your truth, your purpose, your power. You often forget who you are, and you want to remember.
You want to feel more peace and calm. Being fully present, connected, and experiencing the deliciousness of your life is non-negotiable for you, you just need the space to practice and drop in.
an invitation to connect...
Collectively we are starved for authentic, soulful, connection. But connection is where we find inspiration, creativity, healing, and the courage to rise. It is the medicine we need to heal ourselves and this aching world.
we are being called back home to ourselves and to each other.
We need intentional space to gather and listen to our deepest, wisest inner self. Her Sanctuary is a sacred home to connect with yourself and other women leaders so that you can find the courage to speak your voice and live as your fully expressed self.
“Being a part of this community I learned to listen to my body, my intuition, and to accept myself in all my messiness.”
I learned to love myself deeply and saw the ripples flow out and change my relationships and work for the better

online membership community
Her Sanctuary is a sacred community of women devoted to their own journeys of healing and becoming. It is not a program or a course, but rather a sisterhood, a group of women gathering regularly with the intention to break ancient patterns, to let go of what longer serves us, and to redefine who we are as women and feminine leaders.
We meet throughout the month to practice, connect, and deepen into our truth. We create a sacred container to practice devotion to our wise inner self. Her Sanctuary is a touchpoint to remember who we are. A source of authentic connection, conversation, reflection, inspiration, creativity, femininity, and liberation.
a feminine space of devotion
Each month we come together as a community for Sunday Service, The Practice Ceremony, and Sister Circles. These sacred touchpoints offer you the space to breathe, slow down, and deepen into yourself. They serve as refuge from all the noise and expectations of the world. A place to hear your own voice.
The Practice is a sacred feminine system that blends spiritual teachings, deep connection, self-listening, ritual, guided meditation, music, journaling, and deep conversations. Each gathering is infused with The Practice. Together, in a circle of like-minded women, we learn to trust ourselves and find confidence in our inner wisdom so we can start living more authentic lives.
We've forgotten the art of gathering in sacred sisterhood, and we are longing for real connection. Her Sanctuary brings us back together so we can heal through each other. We co-create the space by bringing our wisdom into it. It is not about one person teaching, but rather, all of us creating and holding space together.
We are here to help guide you back to yourself, to your truth, and to your own inner wisdom. Her Sanctuary provides the space and guidance you need to return to who you really are. We are here to help you remember your own power so you can navigate life's challenges with courage and grace.

In our circles I felt my boundaries that I had held up all day at work come crashing down. I was grateful for this place to lay my tired broken body and heart. I was grateful for this space where I could really be me. Being here led me to a deep awakening.

“This community helps me feel less alone in the daily struggles we face as women. .”
Every time I show up for myself, I feel more connected to a community of women, to my truth and how I’m engaging with the world around me.

hi! I'm Michelle long, ma.,
founder of the pracitce
I've been dreaming
about this sanctuary for a long time.
For 20 years I have been holding sacred space for women and dreaming of a global practice community. I have a vision of women from all over the world gathering together in ceremony and sisterhood. I know that when women gather with intention, when we heal our wounds, and find the courage to be our true selves, we heal the world. Her Sanctuary is a feminine spiritual community, a home for our healing hearts.
more about me
we don't need anything else in our lives that feels hard.
Her Sanctuary is simplicity and grace. A sacred space where all you have to do is show up. A place to come back together as women and reclaim what has been lost over generations of disconnection. It's like a church for the sacred feminine.
It's community and connection and a sense of belonging. It's music and quiet and inner reflection. It feels like a deep sigh of relief. It's a circle of women sharing stories, where you get to a be a part of the conversation. It's women supporting women and reminding each other how stunning we are. It's reverence for ourselves and the full range of being human. It is love.
While Her Sanctuary is filled with ease, our intention is profound. We show up to break ancient patterns and to rewrite the story of our female lineage. We are here to collectively rise as matriarchs and wise women, to no longer sacrifice ourselves, and to bring our fullest gifts to this earth. We know that the medicine this hurting world needs is the reclamation of the feminine and the healing of old wounds. When women heal, the world can heal. We are women stewarding a new way to live and lead.
We offer two options to join us in our membership.
Join us in our online sanctuary from anywhere in the world via Zoom. We meet twice monthly, on the new and full moon, for a beautiful ceremony of connection, ritual, music, and opportunities to share and reflect with each other.
In addition to gathering online with our global community, women living near our sanctuary space in West Linn (just south of Portland), can join me once a month for a very special in-person ritual.
Each month Michelle offers a live Practice Ceremony. This is a time to gather as a global community in sacred practice, ritual, deep conversation, and connection. This ceremony is a sacred touch point and an escape into yourself that you won't want to miss. It becomes your monthly ritual and connection with your higher self. It's a time where we get to share and connect with our community in real time. This gathering is not another online meeting or a typical class. It is sacred, devotional, and feels like coming home. Offered every New Moon from 5:00 - 6:30 pm PST via Zoom. All gatherings are recorded and available to members. Calendar of dates is here.
