Master Rose Ashley
Rose Ashley, the present day Headmaster of the Swan Center for Intuitive Living, is a Swanéte Master, spiritual teacher, intuitive, and animal communicator. She served for 20 years as the Headmaster of the Swan Center Monastery, located in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains, in Marble Hill Georgia. The monastery was a place where people of all walks of life and religious backgrounds could retreat to and experience God in nature.
During her time at the monastery, Rose decided to combine her two passions in life – helping animals and helping people. She incorporated the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected animals into the spiritual training matrix for her students, who were seeking greater personal awareness and a clearer understanding of how to love and serve at the highest level. The monastery also offered numerous public workshops and clinics that featured rescued animals as teachers, healers and friends.
Over time the Swan Center Monastery became known worldwide for its animal training and rehabilitation techniques. In 1999, the Swan Center Monastery established Swan Center Outreach - a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, for the purpose of animal rescue; the prevention of cruelty to animals; and education of the general public on the therapeutic and spiritual value of animals.
The monastery became a popular tourist attraction and hosted thousands of guests yearly, until 2006, when Rose moved to Colorado due to health issues. At that time, the monastery closed and the animals made the trek to Colorado, where they participated in spiritually oriented programs until 2016, when they moved once again to join Master Rose in southern California. Rose presently teaches workshops, offers life coaching, and oversees the programs and animal training, for Swan Center Outreach, in Castaic, California.
