Sweat Lodge and Deep Freedom

Dear Friends,

The next sweat lodge is happening on Saturday April 3, 2010
12 Noon to 6 or 7 pm
We will begin with ceremony at the Peace Chamber.
There is a chance that the sacred Kubota will excavate that day too.  So much depends on the weather.
This Lodge is very important for Supporting the Peace Chamber site as we disturb the earth for the building process.

Offering: $30.00

RSVP required. Please respond by Friday April 2.
Thank you for your courtesy.
Scroll to the bottom of this email for a list of what to bring and directions.


My friend Olivier Tryba has answered my invitation to come to Maine in May with his wonderful work on his way to Europe, where he will spend three months teaching and writing.
His workshop is called:

Deep Freedom, Deep Connection!: 

Living Authentically with Natural Wisdom & Connective Desire,

A Visionary Journey Through & Beyond Cultural Trances

May 22-23, 2010

I have found Olivier's work to be an anchor for all the medicine I have received through my 8 years of initiation with Nut Tmu-Ankh and Grandfather Joseph Rael.  Olivier and I are inviting 10 visionary leaders to join us for this experiential weekend, which I call Permaculture for the Soul. This is for you if you are called to leadership in any field that is preparing the human race and the earth  for thriving in THIS TIME, OUR TIME of transformation. This is for you if you've been engaged in personal growth and spiritual development for years, and yet, the change you seek has eluded you. Deep Freedom, Deep Connection will show you why that hasn't worked. I promise!

In a couple of days, I will be sending you a letter from Olivier describing the weekend in detail, along with prices and other information.  I look forward to taking this inward journey with you and Olivier!

Hope Peace Chamber news

This is a time of powerful blessing and challenge for our earth.
Hope Peace Chamber chooses 2010 to be born. You are invited to be part of the family.

It is time to prepare the Peace Chamber site for building. I'll be talking to Sam and his Sacred Kubota excavator this coming weekend, and we'll dig out the site within the next week or so.

Then we build the structural "woodhenge", the reciprocal roof frame, and prepare the cordwood for building walls.
View this blog post at to see the video that inspired the cordwood and cob building we are planning for the Peace Chamber.

Some of the building material is here on the land. We will need some of it donated from other sites. If you know of a place with big pine, spruce or fir that will make good posts for the wood henge, and sturdy long rafters for the reciprocal roof, please let me know.
Hay, gravel, drainage pipe, duct work and bottles (see the video), and other materials are needed, as well as equipment and people to operate it. Cash and donations in kind are needed to get this baby up and singing!

Over the next few weeks I'll be posting schedules, supplies, and ways you can be involved. For now, please write me with ideas, networking suggestions on natural building, and expressions of commitment to get muddy and dirty with building Hope Peace Chamber. And join us to pray and chant in the upcoming sweat lodges.

Sunday, March 21 and Saturday, April 3
Noon to 6 pm approximately

We will begin with ceremony at the Peace Chamber site.
Then we'll start the fire and prepare the sweat lodge.
These lodges will be singing lodges, chanting to support the new chamber.

Dare to Unknow! an introduction to Deep Freedom Now

My friend Olivier Tryba is bringing his experiential workshop into the nature of Being, Feeling, and our Ancestral Wisdom
We have space for 10 Deep Freedom adventurers in the weekend. An email with more information and price will be arriving by next week.

Besides my years of Sun Moon Dancing and my Initiation in the Temple of Wombn, my work and play with Olivier has been the most meaningful work I've engaged. My conversations with him provided an opening in my foundation that allowed the Dance medicine and Orgasmic Alchemy medicine to anchor firmly. His work is essential for people leading communities through the changes and challenges that are upon us now. This is Soul Permaculture for the Linchpins of our time.

And Olivier is a hoot to hang out with. He's fun, outrageous, irreverent, full of love and more than a little coyote.
He's come into his medicine through a long, earthy, world wide journey. I can't wait for you to meet him and experience your own gifts through his work.

Please let me know of your interest right away. Don't wait for details!


After a deep quiet winter of inner work, Hope Peace Ceremonies is quickening with life!
This is the year we have been waiting for, and we are the ones we have been waiting for!
On digging day, when the Sacred Kubota comes to the Peace Chamber, I'll let you know.

I'd love to have a group of your here, with cornmeal, tobacco, and cameras! (and food)

With Loving Blessings,

Diva Carla
