The story of Olive Oasis and how I found it.
For more than 15 years ago I had a dream and in the dream i was in unfamiliar house that was mine. I was with my younger daughter and my mother. I looked out the window into a land that was rolling hill, green and beautiful and it seemed that it is mine. The rest of the dream was magical and prophetic and was pointing to my future work with women, Mother Earth, Shamanic Medicine, and Divine Mother.
The three generation of women in the house were the triple Goddess Virgin, (my daughter), Mother (me), Crone my mother) the Triple Goddess was guiding me.
In 2010 as I was traveling to Peru and Bolivia with a group of students learning sacred ceremonies and rituals I met a medicine woman name Maria and my connection with her was strong. She red our coca leaves and offered us a fire ceremony that was very powerful. I prayed to manifest a land so I could create a women’s sanctuary in the woods.
I looked for awhile in the Catskill Mountains in Upstate New and stopped, nothing came up.
A few months after my return from Peru I was visiting my friend Mirav a realtor in Woodstock in Catskill Mountain NY. On the phone she was trying to convince someone to keep his agreement with the bank and take the house he wanted to buy. I asked her why is she forcing him to buy when he obviously does not want it. Then I said “this property is mine, I am buying it”. She looked at me with utter surprise “ what are you talking about, it is crazy, you did not see the house or the land, and you will have to pay upfront, the bank is waiting on Monday to get the money, for this man, it was foreclosure house.
I was insisted it is mine and I have the money, she knew I did not have the money and was confused about my insistence. I sign an agreement and we went to see it. The house was falling apart and I did not care, the land was the land of my dream, rolling hill and magnificent. I came home to my land and my home in nature and I called it Olive Oasis.
The rest took care of itself magically , the money manifested, the contractor came and help me renovate and the land turned out to be more magical than I could imagine. Exactly a year later from Maria’s ceremony I invited friends and students and we had our first Solstice ceremony on the Land in Olive Oasis.
On this land I am creating the “Earth Temple”, opened seven Chakra portals in the land with women priestesses and building the “Sanctuary of the Heart” that host women and men who come to honor the Divine Feminine, Pachamama Mother Earth who are seeking to be in right relationship with nature and nature forces and all life around.
Through meditation and prayers, dance and rituals, ceremonies, rites and sacred initiations we celebrate and connect to our birthright as the children of the Mother. We are brothers and sisters to each other and to all of nature, the land, the wind, the rain, the stream, the animals are our relations. We are calling the Divine to guide us to come back home to Her.
The Earth Temple
Nature is our companion for soul transformation in healing, initiation and attunement. Connection with Nature brings the child like innocence and magical in us. It is a doorway to our subconscious mind, the mind of the child we have been, in the age we were connected naturally to joy playfulness and fun. The Earth Temple is the place for you to reconnect with that innocent and childlike qualities.
It is also presents a unique opportunity to walk in harmony and tranquility on a path and connect you to your body energy system, the Chakras. We created seven sacred circles each circle emanates different energetic quality that resonates within your body in each Chakra. The experience opens and trained your perceptions to feel and sense deeply your body in relationship with the Earth body. As you senses are awaken and activated your body harmonizes the seven Chakras and your connection with Pachamama is open and enhanced. Now your subconscious is connected to the Mind of Mother Earth and you are in harmony with Her. You can become an intuitive healer, ask questions and find inner knowledge in your mind coming from the wealth of Mother Earth.
The sacred circles in the Earth Temple take you on an inward journey to empower and deepen your memory and activate your soul for further dimensions, connections and reverence for Mother Earth and the Divine Feminine. Taking roots in Mother Earth and her unconditional love calling you back home to yourself as a natural being, part of the interconnected web of life. In this inward and outer journey you realize that the inner and outer landscape is reflected like a mirror in each other and that separation is an illusion that causes us great suffering.
Within the Earth Temple environment one may choose to be alone or with a group, to be guided by a teacher or be still, lie under a tree, walk the stone paths, touch a tuft of moss, sit in silence and contemplation while feeling life force energy permeate all around, leaving you in deep relaxation and natural state of calm and well being.
This experience naturally prepares one for further explorations and deeper commitment to meditation practices, deep breath and bodywork, yoga, Qi Gong and other movement practices, sacred drumming, dance, art, full moon and fire ceremonies.
