Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary


Within an hour’s drive of London there is a beautiful place of serenity and peace, nestled within the Surrey countryside in a village called Shere. This place has helped thousands of people in mind, body and spirit for over 60 years and is a registered charity. The Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary (The Sanctuary), founded in 1946 by the world renowned spiritual healer Harry Edwards, is dedicated to training healers and to promoting health and wellbeing through their programme of healing treatments, workshops, talks, retreats and other wellbeing events.

As well as founding this Charity, Harry Edwards was also involved with the setting up of ‘The National Federation of Spiritual Healers’ which is now called ‘The Healing Trust’. There is a College at The Sanctuary which teaches spiritual healing, and there are ambitious plans to offer other courses over the coming months.

Historically, The Sanctuary has helped people and animals by offering spiritual healing, distant healing and, more recently, has been able to offer telephone healing. There are exciting plans and innovations to reach out to a more diverse audience by adding other treatments, talks, workshops and retreats, making The Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary one of the top UK centres for Wellbeing in the UK, appealing to a broader section of the wellbeing and spiritual community.

The Trustees are keen to forge relationships with local therapists, yoga teachers, healers, nutritionists and anyone in the wellbeing and spiritual community, so that we can build on what we can offer at The Sanctuary which will enable the growth that is required to be able to help bring healing to more people.

With its beautiful grounds, which are open to the public all year round and the stunning house, accommodation, catering facilities, meditation gardens and with ample parking, The Sanctuary also offers exclusive use event hire such as weddings, corporate events and other wellbeing events as well as hiring out individual rooms and spaces for workshops, talks and retreats all within keeping with the Sanctuary’s ethos of being a place of healing for mind, body and spirit.
