The Sanctuary of Light, founded by Chris Griscom in 1985, celebrates each individual’s unique connection to their Divine Higher Self, their Inner Voice. When we are gathering in the recognition of inner wisdom, and tuning into our Inner Voice, we connect to and bring in the light, with the awareness that we are made of light - we are connecting to and becoming, Source energy. Through consciousness, we can direct energy and create change. We practice experiencing being part of the hologram. Healing yourself is integral to healing the world, to creating balance and peace.
The Sanctuary of Light offers a meditation and class each Sunday at 5:00 pm in our Meditation Sphere, so individuals can practice these tools of consciousness, connecting to the world of radiance.
The Sanctuary of Light offers free weekly Meditations every Sunday at 5:00pm, led by Chris Griscom. These half hour Meditations are open to the public and are followed by a Knowings Class with Chris Griscom, or a Higher Self in Life class with a Sanctuary of Light Minister, if Chris is traveling. The fee for the class is $10.
Sanctuary of Light Ministers are based in various locations in the United States, Mexico, Brazil and Europe where they lead meditations and conduct workshops and classes, focusing on themes or issues of your or your groups choice. Our Ministers are also available upon request to travel to your city to perform wedding ceremonies, blessings of birth, the passage of dying and other services.

Ceremony of Matrimony - Ceremony of Love
Celebrate your love and your life!
A wedding is a joyous celebration of two people making a commitment to love and fulfillment before family and friends. Our Ministers can help you create a ceremony that meets your heart’s desire, so each individual is visible in their expression of love to each other. Whatever essence you wish to bring to your wedding, your ceremony will be a unique experience and will create a profound opening for you and your partner.
Prior to the ceremony you can arrange to meet with your minister for a marriage counseling session.
Marriage is a sacred union of two souls entering into a new octave of relationship. We recommend individual Light Institute Sessions or Exercises in Consciousness to clear themes around relationship and to clear any karmic imprints between you and your partner, helping you to move to the highest vibration of relationship together.
Our ministers are available to create blessing ceremonies of passage, whether it is birth, coming of age or blessings for special occasions and situations, such as opening a new business endeavor. Consult your Minister and they will be happy to design a blessing of your choice for you.
We offer several sets of sessions, such as “Clearing the Parents” and “Clearing the Child” to explore and release karmic blockages, vows or contract between you and the child, as well as you and your parents, to create a wonderful state of balance and harmony.
Death is part of life and is a profoundly transformative transition for everyone involved.
We support an individual during this very important stage of life by helping them to come to a place of inner peace, balance and harmony.
We offer “Exercise in Consciousness" to help those in this transition, using light, so all fears and grief can be released and the individual can recognize their purpose and the Soul’s choice, making this passage a passage of expansion, exhilaration and freedom.
If someone has already passed, we help the spirit go into the light-- bringing light and awareness to assisting in the transition of dying.
We also help caretakers to help the dying person be released into the light and release any lingering residues.
We practice Exercises in Consciousness, Nutritional and Wellness Exercises. We work with the following themes and provide sessions for:
- The Ageless Body
- Death & Samadhi
- Transcending Adversity
- Soul Lessons Through The Body
- Mental Illness
At certain stages in life, we come to a closure and often make endings in negativity and fear.
We can choose to create closure with compassion, and support our commitment to growth.
Closure ceremonies can be for a relationship, business partnership or between parents and a child.

NIZHONI is a sacred Navajo word describing "the beauty way". NIZHONI offers a new form of spiritual education that allows people of all ages from around the world to discover their inner wisdom and bring it forth to teach, heal and lead.
Founded in 1989 by spiritual teacher, healer and author, Chris Griscom, NIZHONI is a holographic approach to education which helps us find our place in the world and see the interconnectedness of all experience and knowing.
Nizhoni teaches that all humans are innately spiritual, and that spirituality is the key to discovering our greatest gifts for ourselves and the world. At Nizhoni, spirituality is the voice of the Higher Self, the beauty of a flower, and the love of all humanity. This knowing allows us to embrace all religions and people, thus creating new possibilities and expressions of communication and education for our communities and our planet.
NIZHONI offers programs throughout the year, such as our popular Summer Camps for adults and young people. Nizhoni teachers and graduates are available for Exercises in Consciousness by telephone or in person, for individuals interested in strengthening their connection to the Higher Self and working on themes in their life. Various media projects have been produced by Nizhoni and current projects are in the works.
