The Taos Magnet

After visiting Taos for years Reese felt that she belonged here and moved initially with the intention to write her novel series. Now with two novels published and more on the way, her healing practice is still a priority. 

Reese feels and reveres the magic of the culture, the arts, the music, the skies, the light, the mountains, the holistic community, and the silent whispers are embedded within her. The shared spirit, both spoken and unspoken, is celebrated by all with ongoing gratefulness for being here.  

Reese and her team extend a warm welcome to all those who are drawn to the mystery of Taos and the heart-centered experience of visiting their Restoration Sanctuary.
