Meet SWC's Founder

 

Denise Ganz

Denise Ganz didn’t know where her path would lead when she embarked on a very personal journey of spiritual and personal growth. It was the life or death experience of one of her children that led Denise to find a bigger meaning and purpose in her life.

 

It began with meditation and led to an exploration of all types of metaphysical learning, including yoga, mindfulness, meditation techniques, reiki, astrology, numerology, and yoga philosophy. Along the way, Denise became an activist, working to change our system for the better through education and advocacy. 

 

While she prayed for guidance on how to put all of what she had learned into practice, the Sattva Wisdom Center slowly came into focus. SWC started from her home in Florida, with the intention to be a place of higher learning, where people can join together in connection and community.

 

Denise has assembled a great faculty of wise and experienced teachers who bring all types of enlightenment  to SWC,  so that participants leave feeling grounded, centered, inspired, informed and empowered. Now fully online, SWC’s reach continues to grow.

 

Denise is a practicing attorney, has a 200-hour teacher certification,  a meditation training certification from Ishta Yoga in NYC and is certified in mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) techniques. She also has a reiki mastership, has taken courses in meditation techniques with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield, studied Sanskrit and yoga philosophy, astrology, the chakra system and aromatherapy, and completed an intensive workshop, Off the Mat Into The World, with Seane Corne, Hala Khouri and Suzanne Sterling, that encourages yoga practitioners to make a positive difference in their communities.  Denise is also a leader of Palm Beach Indivisibles, a non-partisan progressive grassroots political activism group.

About our name and the tree in our logo

In Sanskrit, “Sattva” is the quality of goodness, positivity, truth, serenity, balance, peacefulness, and virtuousness that is drawn towards “Dharma” (finding your own path and purpose) and “Jnana” (knowledge).

 

On the logo of SWC is a tree, whose roots and branches represent the connection of all living beings to one another and to the universe (“as above, so below”).
