Coventry’s Soul Sanctuary Offers Wellness Programming for the New Year

A Kent County author and mindset coach opens a collective for holistic healing and community


From navigating her own journey of self-healing and creative expression to publishing bestselling book Homecoming and founding a collective, Justine Harrington has come a long way. She opened Soul Sanctuary early last fall in Coventry, and it has since been a flurry of spiritual and healing activity, hosting regular workshops, pop-ups, and more.

“The idea for Soul Sanctuary came from my own desire to have more in-person connections and community among like-minded people,” says Harrington. “I really wanted a physical space where I could connect with others, have access to a variety of healing modalities, and continue my own personal development.” Realizing she wasn’t alone in seeking a space like that, she decided to create it herself.

Among Soul Sanctuary’s holistic health and wellness services are massage, energy work like Reiki and chakra balancing, hypnotherapy, breathwork, shamanic healing, trauma mentoring, yoga, and other modes, administered by experienced practitioners. “We provide a space and tools for people to reduce stress, anxiety, and fear so they can feel more confident, intentional, and aligned within their day-to-day lives,” says Harrington. “From the practitioners who work in the space to our clients, we are building a heart-centered community.”

As a mindset and business coach, Harrington is all about helping folks live their best lives. “I provide a process and support for others to get out of their heads and into their hearts so they can release false narratives, shatter limiting beliefs, connect with their most authentic self, and ultimately evolve from living in fear to living from a place of love and compassion,” she explains. 

This month, the center hosts a variety of programming geared toward setting intentions for the new year, including the Manifesting from the Heart: Cacao Ceremony & Breathwork Journey, led by Amy Schenck and Amy Chauvin. “The intention of a cacao ceremony is to help you relax so you can connect within to your own innate wisdom and divine intelligence,” Harrington explains, with the breathwork element emphasizing a specific breathing pattern to help tap into a meditative state. “Every breathwork experience is different, yet profound! If you're looking to connect more deeply with yourself, release the old, and welcome in the new, this transformational event is for you.”

For those new to holistic health or simply seeking a sense of community, fun and informative workshops like a Botanical Mocktail class or How to Eat Healthy on a Budget provide opportunities to meet people and learn new skills.

Harrington also opened a shop inside the sanctuary, Sage+Flame, selling a range of self-care products and spiritual tools, all from small businesses. “We love to support our local creators and are proud to offer a local shopping alternative with high-quality, unique items!”
