Our “Essene Peace” Sanctuary includes a young garden, Spiral Labyrinth, Virgin Mary Shrine, Prayer Pyramid and more… The garden is filled with scented plants associated with the Bible and with peace, such as lavender, jasmine, rosemary, fig and olive. This is a place for our local Johnson City community to take a nice walk in a park-like peaceful setting.
The Eye of the Storm is a spiral labyrinth, inspired in part by the giant spiral at Calico Basin in Red Rock National Conservation Area just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the featured part of a small Peace Garden. At the center of the 33 foot wide limestone labyrinth are Nikola Tesla inspired coiled copper pipes topped with double terminated crystals to create a positive energy vortex. The labyrinth was installed in the Summer of 2022 and officially opened on International Peace Day 2022.
Whether you are Catholic or not, you can find a venue of peace in the woods where our Mother Mary shrine lies. This is a quiet tree nook down by the creek with an antique statue overlooking our Ceremonial space.. The ground is covered in Rose Quartz heart healing crystals which is appropriate for the Rosa Mystica, as well as amethyst. It is a place for contemplation and veneration. The “Grail” moniker came after prayer and contemplation and in a flash of a moment’s inspiration based on the fact that Our Lady is present on the Texas Wine Trail. The Grail is a wine mixing cup that was believed to hold the wine at the Last Supper. Both the virgin Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene were present at this supper. Various traditions describe the Holy Grail as a cup with miraculous healing powers, sometimes providing eternal youth or sustenance in infinite abundance. It figures prominently in the Arthurian legends. Perhaps by visiting Our Lady, she may impart these things to you.
We have installed a wooden platform in our wooded area with a crystal infused copper pyramid. It is installed on a north-south axis to increase the electromagentic frequency potential of the ‘pyramid power!’
Come and visit us on the 290 Texas Wine Trail. We are on On the south side of the Rocky Creek curve, a little over 7 miles west of Johnson City. We aim to be open to the public on Second Saturday afternoons. We are still in the building process. There are no bathroom facilities onsite.
Love gift not necessary, but appreciated to continue our mission to build out our retreat center.
