This is a carved rune stone on the meditation island in the middle of a babbling brook, with little waterfalls and the sounds of nature surrounding you. Reva Tunnell, the healing practitioner and owner of the sanctuary(with her lovely partner Lenora) had it specially carved. The mantra is the Buddha of Compassion. I did a pendulum reading for myself and left offerings to nature in gratitude for the profound healing I received. Compassionate Expressions is in “nature’s palm” and will be sacred and hallowed ground to me for the rest of this life.
I’m going to write a full post about my experience, I’ve been writing the post in my head since I left. There truly aren’t words for what I experienced there. My husband and I are going back for our anniversary. Without the distractions of TV, internet, cell phone service, a couple could benefit greatly from spending time together here. In this busy, hectic world there is at least one place on this earth where you can forget about it all and just heal, relax, rejuvenate, reconnect with mama earth, and each other. Compassionate Expressions is that place. The suites and guest houses are large enough for more than two people, I would love for my yoga class to have a yoga retreat(I love when I have amazing ideas while writing). It is non denominational, what ever your faith, you are welcome. There is no judgement. That’s not what it’s about, it’s about healing self. We have to be healed to be able to follow our various faiths, to raise families, to live and work in the sensory overloaded world we are immersed in daily.
Should you choose a private retreat like I did(I was working through some major shadows during my retreat) you will come home a different person. The prices are very reasonable, I feel my healing was priceless, there is no way to put a price tag on what I received. Reva is a gifted, talented, well trained(Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, Usui and Karuna Reiki Master) 26 years of experience healer.
Unbeknownst to her she has become my Spirit Mother. I am fortunate to live close enough to go for day sessions, I am going to return every couple of months for day treatments.
That’s all for this photo, I’m going to do a full piece with many more pictures and a teaser of what I experienced on the sacred grounds of Compassionate Expressions.

If you can’t travel to the beautiful mountains of NC, you are truly missing out. Our nation is beautiful and NC gets overlooked. I’m sure visiting North Carolina isn’t on too many folks bucket lists. There is so much natural beauty here (the first “Hunger Games” was just a small part of all the beauty NC has to offer) from the High Country to the Outer Banks. Come visit my state, you can be healed and inspired, connect with nature and Spirit, then return to your home and spread the healing love to others.
At the bottom of their business card, “Healing the world~one person at a time”, they are doing just that. I’m typing this blog through a pair of fresh eyes, centered and grounded, full of vitality and love. I’m not angry anymore, it was the best gift I could have received for my birthday, I was reborn and will be returning quite often.
My experience was so profound and life changing, I feel it is my duty to share this with as many people as possible. My life’s purpose is to be a healer and this is the perfect spot for the “healer to heal thyself”.
