With a heart full of love and deep connection to all life, Shivani Kumara felt the call to be of service to help animals in need by creating a refuge where they could live their lives abundant in love and peace. In 2001, Shivani took a leap of faith and founded the Blue Heart Sanctuary, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, for-service animal rescue organization. The Sanctuary was originally founded in Myakka City, Florida where Shivani was an animal cruelty investigator working with the Manatee County Sheriff. Over the years, Shivani has facilitated the rescue and rehabilitation of hundreds of animals; many that have experienced unspeakable cruelty and neglect. After a near miss by hurricane Charley, more than 60 farm and companion animals made an exodus from the West coast of Florida to higher ground in the mountains of Western NC.
It was Divinely Orchestrated for them to find the perfect place... 40 acres of ancient Cherokee land that has become a beacon of Love and Light and a place of Peace for All.
What began as a Sanctuary for animals has evolved and expanded into the creation of the SólGaia Center for Illumined Hearts, a sacred space that has been energetically tuned to a high vibration frequency of LOVE where people come to remember what it's like to be ONE - with the animals at the Sanctuary and Mother Earth.
