How well do you know your self?

Selfistry is an integrative system where your spirituality/faith, your psychology/emotional intelligence, your physical well-being, and your belonging in community begin to organize themselves in a way that turns your life into a work of art—with you as the artist. There’s no dogma in Selfistry, no right or wrong way to be or do it. There’s simply an invitation for you to discover for yourself who you are and why you’re here. 


Selfistry offers a simple and elegant map of the human experience. At this point in human history when religious institutions, theologies, cosmologies, and prescriptions for living a meaningful life are crumbling, a burgeoning community of seekers are searching for a more sane, accessible, and intelligent way to navigate their lives and deaths. Selfistry’s sensible spirituality is uniquely designed for a postmodern generation facing the unprecedented complexities and global challenges of the new millennium.


Selfistry draws from meditation, silence, yoga, mindfulness and prayer—all of which Sarah spent ten years practicing in seclusion—along with modern transformational techniques such as conscious movement, vision questing, and psychological techniques for consciousness development. Selfistry is also informed by a rigorous academic study and contemplation of other teachings from diverse lineages and disciplines.


The Selfistry map encompasses three primary domains: 1. The territory of Source. 2. The realm of our human experience—personal and collective. 3. The arena of consciousness or self-awareness. Every aspect of human life can be found in one of these domains. By identifying the appropriate location where a given human experience resides, Selfistry practitioners discover how to integrate and organize their life in a way that makes sense and supports their development. This discovery brings a fresh perspective and strengthens our ability to engage life purposefully, enhance our unique human experience, and connect more deeply with Source and with others.


Selfistry was born out of Sarah's years in isolation exploring the realms of her own psyche, soul, heart, mind, and body. She "selfishly" took the time and attention to uncover, discover, and recover her authentic self. After ten years she found the inspiration, wisdom, insight, and compassion to engage with the world again. When she returned to society she brought Selfistry with her to share.


The map of Selfistry stands alone as a tool for spiritual understanding and self development. However, the addition of the Selfistry somatic method supports the learning and embodiment of the map by rooting the three realms into your nervous system, bypassing your cognitive mind and allowing for a more integrated embodiment of your human self. Employing movement and stillness, silence and sound, autonomy and connection, the Selfistry method provides a unique opportunity for self discovery in a creative, playful, and powerful way. 


Selfistry is a guide for learning the artistry of being human.

No experience necessary.
