About  sanctum


Sanctum exists to help you find powerful experiences!


The Sanctum Project is created and facilitated by Ethan E Wise, MA.  It is the fulfilment of a calling and a dream.  It was officially started in June 2022.


Sanctum offers you the ability to work directly with Ethan as your spiritual facilitator, in a capacity and manner completely tailored to your intention, to facilitate an experience that is meant to happen for you.


Currently, Sanctum has a guest cabin and a meditation space in the middle of being constructed.  These are being built utilizing  alternative building methods, namely the use of compacted earth in earth-bags, intermixed with other local building methods.


Those who believe in the mission and vision of Sanctum volunteer their time to help in creating Sanctum. I welcome and ask for your help!


Sanctum is a space that welcomes all those who have a belief in a One Divine God, one Source, or Consciousness.


The concept of Sanctum derives from sacred spaces such as an Ashram, a Christian monastery, a Zen mediation temple, and other sacred spaces.


View Services




Sanctum is located in Southeast Arizona on 35 acres of high desert land with stunning unobstructed southern views of endless miles allowing you see mountains and valleys, the big sky, and a view into Mexico 35+ miles away.


Sanctum is located in the Arizona Chihuahuan desert (to the Southeast of the Sonoran desert) in Cochise County.  This location is special, some like to think of it as the Sedona of Southern Arizona.


This location features mild weather year-round, and a vast diversity of birds.  The night sky touches the ground and offers you a magnificent view of the heavens that our ancestors gazed it, thanks to some of the darkest skies in the nation.
