Transitional Living at The Sparkle House
Why is it called The Sparkle House?
To sparkle is to bring forth light, to shine, to become bright and lively. The Sparkle House derives its name from our founder Dr. Liz Esalen's sincere belief that in the darkest of corners, light shines most brightly and that together, we can change the world by sparkling within:
"As we discover our inner compass, our truth, and honor our voice and authentic personhood, we discover the stars that have been sent to guide us. Our north star becomes visible and we can once again, listen to ourselves and make decisions that best serve us. We no longer follow rules about diets, bodies, and gender that limit us and work to keep us small. When we discover and truly honor who we are and what we are meant to do, we begin to shine. It is our inner sparkle that inspires other to walk in their light. We sparkle because we no longer serve cruel inner critic, allow limiting judgments, feel in competition or there isn't enough. We no longer live in fear. We become the authentic, powerful humans we were born to be, filled with love that can change the world."
At The Lotus Collaborative San Francisco, we strive to ignite this vision of luminous power and transformation for our clients. The name "Sparkle House" is a reflection of this core component of our treatment philosophy.The Sparkle House offers a warm, healing space where women can reclaim their inherent ability to recover, support one another, shine brightly, and expand the ever growing community of women lighting up the world.
