In 2011, Patricia and her husband, Vitor, chose they had enough of the big city and wanted to reconnect with nature.
They got to the town of Camanducaia in Brazil and built a sanctuary where her husband can expand health food and she can show yoga.
Santuario Vale de Rainha was birthed.
” Vale da Rainha shelters over a hundred Master Animals: cows, pigs, horses, donkeys, goats, lamb, birds, canines and cats– every one of them saved from mistreatment,” the website described the Shelter. “The Shelter after that works on emotional healing with compassion, which also reaches us, humans.”
The Sanctuary is a non-profit sanctuary with mostly volunteers operating it.
It’s the perfect place for personal development. They believe and show that things do not change however people do. And changed people change the world.
In this sanctuary, Patricia reacted with compassion and love to the humans helping run the place and to the animals they rescued.
Someday, a rescued bull reached their sanctuary.
He was supposed to be slaughtered for meat but he appeared a wall and ran away. When he arrived at the shelter, he was still crying.
” As I greeted him, he immediately looked at me and quit crying,” Patricia defined. “He was still a bit scared but I knew he would grow to trust me.”
The others warned Patricia that the bull could hurt her because he was aggressive.
But that initial meeting told Patricia this bull would certainly never hurt her. And after that, Patricia would certainly look for him at the sanctuary and just talk to him and sing to him.
Patricia continued to do this till one day, the bull laid down beside her and put his head on her lap. That’s when she knew the bull trusted her.
Now, each time, the bull saw her, he would certainly lay down on the ground, and reveal her his belly, waiting to be massaged on the belly. Patricia was happy to do so along with a song for him.
But the bull wasn’t the only animal she sang to.
Patricia took care of and sang to all the animals, especially when she had a vision after buying the farm.
” One evening, I had a vision of a very old woman– smart and strong. She told me to take care of any and all living animals,” Patricia shared. “The complying with day, a friend of mine asked me to adopt her horse because she could no more take care of him … I thought it was all very magic– her vision, after that the request. We recognized we can do this for others … that is just how the journey of our sanctuary began.”
Their sanctuary after that came to be a place where people can be with the animals, tell them stories, and sing to them.
At the sanctuary, Patricia claimed it was a place where the animals can teach humans how to love and not just be loved.
