Dean Taraborelli and Kelly Alexander

Dean and Kelly art the Directors of The Sanctuary at Sedona, Holistic and Transformational Trauma Healing Center. At The Sanctuary, they define “recovery” differently than how it is defined in traditional treatment centers, 12-step programs, or the allopathic medical paradigm.

 In the traditional paradigm, recovery describes the process of combating a disorder.  The word implies an ongoing diseased oriented process.  You are always trying to get something back and you never succeed. 

In the new paradigm, we believe recovery is the process of regaining something that has been lost, given away or has been taken from you.  We believe that addictions and disorders are symptoms of underlying issues and that it is possible to identify and resolve these issues and to move into a state of being recovered.  Being recovered means that you manage the difficulties that inevitably come along in life and see them as growth opportunities.

Mark Romero

Mark Romero’s successful nineteen-year career as an executive manager and CEO took a dramatic turn the day a former NASA consultant discovered that his music contained frequencies that cancelled negative energy.  Though initially skeptical, but willing to learn more, Mark accepted the invite to see the science behind the claim.  That day he received, what he affectionately refers to as, a crash course in Energy 101.  Like the wind, whose effects can be seen but not the wind itself, Mark soon learned his music held comparable power.  Parents of children with autism and ADHD, Alzheimer’s patients and stressed corporate executives, all began passionately communicating to Mark the positive improvements his music had on their daily functioning and compelled him to dedicate his life to improving the welfare of others.
