Meet Rev Beth Sanok

Founder of the Light Ray Center

Rev Beth is a multifaceted individual with a wide range of interests and passions. As a martial artist, she has dedicated herself to the discipline and physicality of various martial arts forms, honing her skills and mastering different techniques. This dedication to martial arts has not only helped her develop strength and agility but has also instilled in her a sense of discipline and focus.

In addition to her martial arts background, Rev Beth is also a Shamballa / Reiki master and sound healer. These practices involve channeling spiritual energy and using sound vibrations to promote healing and balance within the body. Through Reiki and sound healing, she offers support and guidance to individuals seeking physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

As a spiritual teacher, Rev Beth shares her wisdom and experiences with others, guiding them on their own spiritual journeys. She draws inspiration from various sources, including her love for Pooh, the beloved character from A.A. Milne’s stories. Winnie the Pooh stories hold a special place in her heart. Pooh’s simplicity, innocence, and unwavering friendship serve as a reminder of the importance of embracing joy and finding beauty in life’s simple pleasures.

Rev Beth was raised on the onion fields of Goshen in the Black Dirt region of Orange County New York. As a farmer’s daughter, she created a line of all-natural homemade soap using plants and vegetables from the farm. Black Dirt Soap Works was created and owned by the Light Ray Center to distribute the soap her father loved so much. Ask her about the red onions when you see her.

Rev Beth teaches Holy Fire III Reiki, and Shamballa Multi-Dimensional Healing along with an assortment of shamanic and spiritual-based workshops to help others create their own spiritual toolbox and learn the ways of energy, self-healing, and connecting with Mother Earth and nature.  She also facilitates Cacao Ceremonies and Sound Baths to bring the magic of sound and cacao together for group healing. She composes and offers free guided mediations, healing prayers, weekly oracle insights, and weekly blog posts on spiritual topics.

Rev Beth’s diverse interests and roles intertwine, allowing her to offer a unique perspective and approach to spirituality and personal growth. Whether through martial arts, Reiki, sound healing, or her teachings, she strives to inspire others to embrace their own spiritual path and live a fulfilling life.


Having a vivid imagination and a knack for doodling cartoons, Rev Beth created Milky Way Ray, her little alien ambassador. He has been a part of her spiritual journey and is how the Light Ray Center all started.
