During this 7 Days of Rest and Reflection, we are delighted to honour the Earth Treasure Vase Healing Project, a journey of immense devotion, vision and vibrational healing wisdom, led by Cynthia Jurs after her life-changing meeting with 106-year-old- Tibetan Lama in his cave high in the Himalaya.

When Cynthia asked Tibetan Lama, H.E. Kushok Mangden, Charok Rinpoche, what we can do to bring healing and protection to the Earth, he gave her a practice. The practice she received is inspired by ancient Tibetan Buddhist tradition, of filling consecrated clay vessels with prayers and offerings and ceremonially burying them in the Earth in collaboration with indigenous elders, young activists and grassroots leaders in places where healing and protection are most needed around the planet. Cynthia has for over 30 years dedicated herself to this practice. Since the meeting with the Lama, over 40 Earth Treasure Vases have been planted on every inhabited continent, and more are in this process.


The vases form a global mandala of prayers and intentions for the healing of the Earth.


On every full moon a global online gathering is held for a guided meditation to direct our prayers and intentions into the vases and energize the global mandala, embracing Gaia with our heartfelt presence and sacred offerings.


Below are two magnificent videos that offer a glimpse into the heart of the Earth Treasure Vase Project, and the depth and breadth of its reach.  You can discover more of these treasures in the archive 

We are deeply grateful to Cynthia Jurs & David Nicol for their generosity in offering two “gateway” meditations on the first and last days of the the 7 Days of Rest and Reflection.

These meditations will connect the field of 7 Days of Rest and Reflection to the Earth Treasure Vase Global Healing Project. 

Cynthia and David have been working together in deep partnership around the Earth Treasure Vase and other subtle activism projects.  In these meditations, they will together presence the relationship of the Masculine and Feminine in sacred service of Gaia and all of Life.

In these Gateway Meditation Ceremonies we will connect to this extraordinary grid of intentional vase offerings. In doing so we have the unique opportunity of join and amplify the global field of intention laid lovingly over many years, and the field of vibrational activation in the diverse energetic centers where these vases are buried.

The first Gateway Ceremony is on January 1st at 12:00 pm PST. The last Gateway Ceremony is on January 7th at 12:00 pm PST. 

For local times check here.

We encourage participation in the live calls to connect globally, generate energy and build a strong field of resonance for our shared intentions. There will be a time for personal sharing of prayers and intentions as part of both calls.

A recording of the live call will be sent to all who register.
