What animals do you have in your sanctuary?

There are cows, oxen, horses, goats, sheep, roosters and chickens, buffaloes, peacocks, dogs, cats, pigs and donkeys.

How did you get started with your sanctuary? What led/inspired you to open one?

“Ten years ago, my husband and I decided to move out of the city and reconnect with nature.

He would grow organics and I would continue to teach yoga. We bought this little farm which we moved in right away. One night, I had a vision of a very old woman – wise and strong. She told me to look after any and all living creatures.

The following day, a friend of mine asked me to adopt her horse because she could no longer take care of him. And I thought it was all very magic – the vision, then her request. As soon as he came, we realized we could offer this to many others.

That is how the journey of our sanctuary began.

Since then, we hold programs to tell our animals’ stories. We call them Masters, because of their ability to forgive and love unconditionally. We suggest people talk and listen to them, to allow their magic. They teach us the importance of loving rather than being loved. They teach me to not give in to my fears of getting hurt.”

What is your dream for animals?

“My dream for Masters Animals includes the dream for human beings. That our humanity regenerates. That it is only through our regeneration that the biggest and best dream for Masters Animals will happen: their freedom.

I dream that our humanity is rescued. And this work that each one must develop inspiring the others is paradoxical, as it cannot be developed with the intention of saving the other since it is only each one who can save themselves. May this individual responsibility happen, so that every dream we have for Masters Animals can come true.”
