Dean Taraborelli, B.A.

Founder, Administrator, Counselor

Dean Taraborelli: He is the Founder, Administrator, Counselor at the Sanctuary at Sedona. He has a BA in Political Science and is currently Senior teaching staff at Four Winds Society, an international school of energy medicine. His credentials also include being an Ordained Minister; a Certified Shamanic Breathwork® Facilitator; a Founding Member Society for Shamanic Practitioners; a Member of Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology; a Member of National Institute for Holistic Addiction Studies. Dean has traveled extensively to sacred sites in over 60 countries to study world mythology, religion, spirituality, wisdom traditions and indigenous healing and wellness practices.


In battling his substance abuse problem, Dean gained real expertise in being on the treatment side of rehab centers. He was a patient at many well regarded addiction treatment institutions in the country, some more than once. He has been in over 10 inpatient drug rehabilitation centers, participated in 3 inpatient extended care programs, numerous outpatient and intensive outpatient programs, years of private therapy, support groups, and 12-step programs. In his desperation he underwent a risky, painful and controversial procedure known as medically-assisted, rapid-opiate detoxification and a multitude of medication protocols.He had wide exposure to many chemical addiction treatment modalities. While many of these worked temporarily on the symptoms of the problem, he was unable to achieve any real sustainable change.


Dean’s transformation into wellness was deeply rooted in the tradition of energy medicine, vibrational chemistry, noetic biology and quantum physics. To heal at the core cellular level, he realized he must work at the level of energy, as energy organizes all matter including sickness in the mind and body. These techniques have been known and used worldwide for millennium and have just recently become more accepted in Western culture. Modern scientific evidence continues to validate the undeniable evidence of the effectiveness and profound power of energetic healing.


Because of his own dramatic and profound healing experience and life transformation, he was inspired and called to create a place where others can do the same. That place is The Sanctuary at Sedona.
