Sacred Place exists to facilitate deep personal transformation within individuals that wish to instigate profound change in their lives and themselves mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. This work is delivered through courses and therapies. Education, Health and Sustainability are the foundations that drive our vision for creating positive change in all that we do.
Luke and Susana believe that if we want to change our world, we must begin with ourselves first, hence The Inner Revolution. One personal example from their lives is that they consciously chose to change their careers, become self-employed, and become Vegan.

Originally from Portugal, Susana lived in U.K. for 17 years. During this period Susana built up a successful career in the fashion retail business working as a senior manager in both in Portugal and the U.K. Her life experience and education are very profound and unique. Since childhood, she felt a special awareness and presence of a strong intuition that provided guidance throughout her life. Susana faced many personal difficulties at an early age. It was through these difficult life experiences that she learned and developed a deeper understanding about the existence of a Higher self. During this early stage she began a journey of mysticism that continued beyond the boundaries of this physical world. Susana’s interest in spirituality started when she was very young partly because she was very intuitive toward people’s feelings, emotions and thoughts. She could ‘see’ their unfulfilled potential and how these people could sabotage their own life journeys. She was attracted by the complexity of human behavior and the psychology of the mind, whist also feeling great inspiration from the spiritual masters of the East. In 2008 Susana left the corporate world behind along with her comfortable life and began to explore many different countries in South East Asia. This journey led to many healing shifts from within along with gaining a greater perspective of the world and her role in it. During her travels she spent most of her time studying meditation, participating in Vipassana retreats and learning new holistic healing techniques. Upon Susana return from her travels in 2010 Susana made the decision to change her career, transferring her skills, knowledge and education into a new stream of work related to Spiritual Counseling, Nutrition and Detoxification of the mind, body and spirit.
