Myra Jackson coming to Terra’s Temple!

Myra Jackson coming to Terra’s Temple, by Aumatma I met Myra Jackson a few months back as my partner and I traveled the country. She actually organized a film-screening event that brought in about 70 people. Not only was that incredible, she did it with extreme grace and efficiency. That was my introduction to Myra Jackson. She is an incredibly established woman who has done many things in many fields. Asking her questions about her life story was fascinating- I kept being surprised by the incredible depth of life experience she brought with her. Then, I learned she was in the midst of writing a book, Living Alchemy of Synthesis and Distinction, that seemed very connected to the divine  feminine earth consciousness. So, I told her about Terra’s Temple, an awe-some sanctuary dedicated to Gaia and immediately we had a deep connection! I invited her to come to the Temple to share about her book and mission as we parted ways and she said yes! So… the opportunity has arrived to host Myra, a well-distinguished leader, to gain from her wisdom and experience. I’m so looking forward to our time with her on Monday, October 4th at 7pm!

My heart sang when I heard her say something that I had long felt in my spirit. I can’t provide an exact quote, this was about 4 years ago. Basically she said, We must preserve and heal our communities that live on this land because we know the land and know how to protect and conserve what is on this earth. I thought about this in relation to all of the movements and activism around Gaia and felt that I had finally heard someone speak a vision that I knew had to been seen. Our communities, families, and ourselves must be healed in order for us to do the work to heal Gaia. We are her stewards. If we are sick, tired, and not actualized to our purpose in life, how can truly work on her behalf or help others who are in our lives? That moment with Valdina, pushed me over the ledge and forced me to open my wings and fly to fulfill my own purpose in life. So, I’m here in California, working on my PhD in psychology focused on social change and transformation in relation to individual and community well being. It is my intent to be a part of the transformation by working […] Read more »
