Our “Essene Peace” Sanctuary includes a young garden and spiral labyrinth. The garden is filled with scented plants associated with the bible and with peace, such as lavender, jasmine, rosemary, fig and olive.
The Eye of the Storm is a spiral labyrinth, inspired in part by the giant spiral at Calico Basin in Red Rock Park in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the featured part of a small Peace Garden and the larger Seed of Life intentional Essene community retreat center. At the center of the 32 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.
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 are generally open to the public on Second Sunday afternoons after church services. As 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.

Our Healing Vortex
Numerous Energy Vortices connect underground within a rough triangular region between Austin, San Antonio and Llano, Texas. One of the largest outcroppings is called Enchanted Rock, a massive pink granite dome rising above Central Texas. The vortex energy spreads out south and eastwards from this special State protected Natural Area.
The energy flows through telluric Ley Lines that cross over the Edwards Aquafer – one of the most prolific aquifers in the world – which spouts countless healing springs. At the very center of this energy vortex area lies the Texas Wine Trail between Johnson City and Fredericksburg. The Seed of Life Sanctuary is along this highway and at the VERY center of this zone.
In the future we will be hosting healing sessions in our historic consecrated healing roadside Limestone Rock buildings. We may gather by the talking trees, a tall trio of Texas Live Oak trees. Lastly, we will gather along Rocky Creek on a magnificent splay of Crystal-Rich granite. This outcropping is alongside a year-round spring-fed creek. Underneath the massive, ancient lava magma lava flow granite river rocks are large crystals, quartz, topaz and tourmaline. Standing barefoot on the rock you can feel the energy emanating upward.
We will welcome healers of all manners here to join in our quest to create Cosmic Christ Consciousness and Heaven on Earth.
Texas Hill Country History
Hill Country has been historically filled with thousands of natural springs. Archaeologists have found evidence of humans occupying parts of the Hill Country for 10,000 years! The land is naturally ample with wild deer, turkey, pecans, mesquite, fish and more (including snakes!). The hills are filled with ‘Edwards Chert,’ stone aka flint. Native Americans have loved the land and tribes were know to gather in the area for meetings. (See notes regarding The Vortex.)
German immigrants later came to the state of Texas in the 1800s, and many settled in Hill Country. The historic town of Fredericksburg is emblematic of this history. Many people there still speak German. In fact, there were so many German settlers in Texas, we have been told that the official state language was almost voted to be German!
Our piece of property has served the local community for years for herd grazing along the year-round spring-fed Rocky Creek. The small hand-built rock building on the highway sold local peaches, and we were told it potentially sold booze during prohibition years. (A prophetic place to run a sober-oriented community!!!) A house and petrol station (1940s) were also on the land and created a welcome stopping point between Fredericksburg and Johnson City. All that remains of them is a thick concrete pad, concrete foundation and large brick fireplace. We were told the gas station proprietor used to put lanterns along the highway to help drivers safely find their way along this notorious curve on the road.
In later years, a Honky Tonk known as the Mermaid Club opened up on this site at the end of 1966. The opening act was the Texas Show Boys. There are ads that show they were still in business up until the 1970s. The site may have had a fire, but most certainly experienced a major flood at Rocky Creek. Parts of a broken-down bridge were a twisted pile of rusted metal on the site when we acquired it. All of metal salvaged on site has been fully cleaned up and recycled. We have since salvaged the two historic rock buildings on site and restored their roofs to protect against the ample rains in the area.
