Twenty-five years ago, Wendy was in a car accident that was one of those life defining moments that changed the course of her life. It was a catalyst to a sometimes difficult journey of healing that shaped the course of her destiny.
Shortly after being in the car accident she had the fortune of meeting Dr. Deepak Chopra while working as a concierge at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. It happened to be that just for a few moments it was only him and Wendy in the lobby so she walked up to him and asked, “How old were you when you found your peace?” She wasn't even sure where that question came from.
He replied that he had a book for her to read and would be right back. He returned with his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, and signed it “To Wendy, Wishing you joy and fulfillment in all of your desires, Deepak Chopra.” Wendy went home and was instantly drawn into the book.
The book inspired her the moment she read the first quote:
It is at this point that Wendy began to see a glimpse of the spiritual nature of this journey. She went into the hotel the next day and resigned, in search of deep introspection and her destiny. She wanted to understand what this car accident and neck injury had to do with her life purpose.
Wendy grew up in South Africa and her father was an old fashioned family Doctor. Ever since she could remember, western medicine was a way of life for her family. If they were feeling sick, her dad prescribed pills or antibiotics.
It was difficult for Wendy to realize that conventional Western Medicine was not enough to heal her, and so begun her search into Alternative Medicine. She searched the world for healing and envisioned opening a Wellness Center for twenty-five years. A “Blank Canvas of Healing,” providing people with a community of healers and resources to help them achieve wellness.
In opening Roslyn Salt Cave, Wendy feels like she is walking in her dream and destiny. Her wish is that you find something in this center that resonates with your Mind, Body and Spirit which helps you achieve your wellness goals.
After moving to Los Angeles, Kari began suffering from asthma and other inflammatory issues which culminated in an auto-immune diagnosis. Having used conventional treatment methods, she began exploring a more holistic approach. This search for a more natural way to manage inflammation and pain led to the use of salt caves.
Kari graduated from Cape Technicon, in Cape Town, South Africa with a degree in Library and Information Sciences. She then worked as a Librarian at the South African Library in Cape Town, South Africa. Kari moved into the corporate world and worked for an international consulting Firm, Andersen Consulting in Cape Town, South Africa.
Kari is very active in the community and spends her time volunteering for many charitable causes including working at the Jag Shack at de Toledo High School and coordinating the party books for the Jewish Woman’s Initiative. Kari also serves on the executive committee of Shomrei Torah Synagogue as the Co-VP of Community.
