SACRED CENTERINGS- Forward by Tony Burrows
What could be more valuable than staying centered and balanced within oneself? The person who is able to keep centered in the midst of all the chaos and challenges in the world positions herself to evolve spiritually, while the uncentered, distracted person’s path winds long and is typically fraught with obstacles and adversity. Clearly, the ability to remain centered and calm no matter what is going on around us serves us in so many ways, ways we may not have even been aware of until we’ve experienced the inner peace that comes when we find our Sacred Center.
That’s why we need example-setters like Dean and Amanda to show us that our Sacred Center exists – and the tools to help us get there and stay there. Indeed, these beautiful Sacred Centerings Cards are the perfect tool for anyone who is seeking to heal or live a fuller, freer life.
Over the last couple of years I’ve been fortunate to be in a circle of friends with Dean and Amanda as they designed and tested the Sacred Centerings Cards. We were like friendly guinea pigs as we pulled cards from the deck – and, to our amazement, we always found that the card we drew showed us exactly what we needed most to explore in the moment in order to bring ourselves back to our Sacred Center. As we did this we discovered that the cards covered all aspects of our lives, from the physical to the emotional, to the mental and spiritual parts of ourselves – so whatever card we drew always seemed to point us to the area of our lives that needed the most attention. It was uncanny, healing and fun all at the same time.
One of the main things that comes through when you play with these unique cards for a short time is the dedication to healing that Dean and Amanda bring to their work. Between them they know more about the human body, both intuitively and intellectually, than anyone I have ever met. When I have a health challenge I go see Dean and Amanda because I know, to the core of my being, that they will always do the best they can do to help me heal. It is this deeply felt feeling of dedication and caring that makes them both such powerful healers. And it is this same felt dedication that shines through into their Sacred Centerings Cards.
But hey, this is my experience with the cards. The proof is in your experience with the cards. So go ahead, right now. Pick a card and see where it takes you. I’d be willing to bet that it takes you a giant step closer to your own Sacred Center.

The Sacred Centerings is a series of playful exercises that we have selected and used for more than three decades in our clinics, classes, workshops and personal practice. These playful exercises are chosen because of their health benefits, effectiveness and ease. Research has proven that the continuity of your practice is as important as the exercises themselves. Just a few minutes everyday is more beneficial then three hours on Saturday.
By establishing daily health practices one super charges the benefits and gets deeply established in healthy routines leading to a healthy lifestyle.
These exercises are gathered from various traditions; Yoga, Qi Gong, Tibetan Buddhism, Chinese Medicine, martial arts, energy medicine as well as from our clinical experiences and our imaginations.
With 50 years of combined clinical practice Dr. Dean Sanna and Amanda Beasley have chosen these 78 playful exercises because they work for anyone, anywhere, at anytime. All can do these exercises, young, old, or out of shape.
These exercises have been used in our clinics and workshops because they are fun, effective and fast, usually less than 5-10 minutes for each exercise.
The card decks will highlight: BREATHING, MEDITATION, MOVEMENTS & VISIONS.
