Find Wholeness and Healing at Gracefull Heart



Sharon Askey

Gracefull Heart, a spiritual shop and healing space in Carlisle, is owned by Sharon Askey, a healer, teacher and spiritual coach. Through an intense spiritual journey that helped her discover the gifts within herself, she felt guided to open the shop as a way of helping others on their healing journey. The name Gracefull Heart was inspired by Grace, Askey’s mother, as well as her belief that the way to enlightenment and healing is having a graceful heart.

In 2005, Askey traveled to India with consciousness teacher Nigel Taylor for a month. Upon her return, she knew the corporate world just didn’t fit with the direction she wanted to take with her life. In 2006, she left her job, not knowing what would come next, but trusting in the process. Upon hearing about her life-altering experience in India, friends began to encourage her to find a space where she could share her experience with others. In 2011, with support from family and friends, Askey outfitted a small space within her husband’s electronics store as a gift shop, and Gracefull Heart was joyfully founded.

Items available for purchase include gemstone jewelry, crystals and prayer beads, as well as cards, singing bowls, books, music, statues and incense. Askey also offers healing modalities to support health and well-being, as well as events, classes and workshops.

Reiki is ancient and gentle form of energy healing that is very relaxing and stress-reducing. Reiki healing sessions and class levels I, II and III are offered on a regular basis. Sacred Spirals is a hands-on healing technique which helps to activate and energize the chakras and the movement of energy through them. A jade healing wand that Askey brought back from India and other crystals are used during the healing session. Reiki is also an integral part. This work can help to initiate movement and change in someone’s life. She learned this technique while visiting the Ashram of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in India.

Another tool for healing is the Dominus Cervix Stargate Astrum, which harnesses the power of sacred geometry to create an experience of deep inner purification and activation of the light body. “The Stargate is very balancing to one’s physical energy, and I feel blessed to have it in my shop as a healing tool for others,” explains Askey. Seated centrally within the Stargate Astrum, a participant can experience an opportunity for profoundly deep physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformation.

Encouraging wholeness and healing through love has bestowed blessings and feelings of calm and peace upon Askey, as well as visitors to the shop, creating many graceful hearts.

Gracefull Heart is located at 1953C W. Trindle Rd., in Carlisle. For more information, call 717-240-0400 or visit Gracefull-Heart.com.
