Cynthia Quintinal comes from a family of women healers. Her great grandmother was a midwife and herbal wise woman, who passed her knowledge on to her daughter. Her knowledge continued to be augmented and passed down through the generations. She had a spiritual awakening in the woods at her home at a very young age, which led her on a path to include spiritual aspects to her work later in life as she realized her passion and path as a healer. Cynthia has studied many healing modalities over her 20 vested years, including Structural Integration, Cellular Memory, Reiki, Craniosacral, Somato Emotional Release, Lightbodies, Sound Healing, and Maya Abdominal.
Her specialty is leading someone to their inner knowing and higher self. Cynthia is also a singer, poet and clothing designer (and includes singing in her sessions when appropriate.) She and her husband give beautiful healing concerts improvised with crystal bowls, drums and voice with their Sound Healing Project, Crystal Cymbology. They will offer their professional guidance for anyone interested in purchasing sound healing instruments and have been assigned as our Music/Sound Therapy Directors at the Sanctuary.

Susan Katz Jewelry: In the depths of stones, I saw an endless array of possibilities. Not the possibility of improving on what nature had created, but the possibility of taking what nature provided and embracing it in arms of silver, integrating pearls with stones, stones with shells, rough with smooth, polished with textured, providing a stage on which nature’s players might perform. I understood, as well, the power of stones, the energy that is inherent in their creation, the power they have to soothe or delight, to heal or to heighten awareness, to connect us to our inner selves and, to the world around us. This is the inspiration behind EarthWhorls jewelry.

About Our Sanctuary
The lovely, elegant house, known in recent years as the Wayne Pratt House, sits amidst quiet gardens and graceful old trees on Main Street South, in Woodbury, Connecticut. It was originally built in the mid 1700’s and operated as a tavern, welcoming travelers with food, drink and camaraderie. In later years, it became an inn as well.
In the early 1990’s, a transformation or rebirth came to this charming house in the form of an antique shop. It was imagined into full bloom by Wayne E. Pratt, an antique dealer who was a major force in the antique business, demonstrating his savvy business skills and knowledge of the value of historic objects and memorabilia.
And now, fast forward to 2016 and a new life for this old house. In the heart of historic Woodbury, Connecticut, amidst graceful old homes, tree lined avenues, antique shops and houses of worship, Salt of the Earth Healing Arts will begin its own journey into the soul of this place, touching the heart, the spirit and the body with the joyful power of self awareness and renewal.
