Description

Windows of the Earth Sanctuary
Return to your point of origin by entering one of the most stunning and transformative spaces
within Mother Earth herself. World renowned cave artist Ra Paulette has created a one of a
kind initiatory grounds bored into the center of a sandstone butte that will re-acquaint us all with
our psyches and deep sense of connectedness. You will literally feel the grounding as your feet
connect with the sand on the floor of the cave and all your senses take in the glory and wonder
of the hand hewn artistic expression of universal spirit and beauty. Caves have long
represented profound environs of initiation and re-cognition of our deepest and most primal and
seminal selves, our juncture of creation. At Origin, you have the opportunity to meditate, chant,
or experience sound healing in this harbinger of connectedness and metamorphosis. You may
simply wish to enjoy the magnetic allure of this truly inspired artistic sanctuary as a work of art.
The graceful and sweeping sculpted high ceilings of each chamber juxtapose the expansive
views from the 20 foot glass windows. Notice how the natural light streams in to illuminate the
intricate detail and beauty of the natural chairs and benches and altars throughout. Gaze into
the mirrored “pools” to see your true nature. Undoubtedly, you will never forget the experience
of this cave and will leave with a profound and renewed sense of all that is possible, when one
is aligned with inspiration and true creative forces!

Testimonials for Mesa Prieta Experience as add on to Origin visit: My Review of Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Tour: I would definitely recommend an outing to the Mesa Prieta Petroglyphs. The short easy hike up the cliff was well worth observing the multiple Petroglyphs throughout the entire area. These carvings are absolutely amazing and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative regarding the age and tribes from which they were created. It was a very memorable and educational experience. Marilyn M

My review of Origin Primordial Sound Meditation Retreat, November 2015: I was honored to be among the first guests to participate in the Origin at Rancho de San Juan experience. I truly considered this an opportunity of a lifetime. The serene peaceful surroundings were only surpassed by the luxurious accommodations of the casitas, patios and main house. The hospitality of the staff was amazing. Classes performed in the spiritual Yurt were extremely well presented by a licensed Chopra Meditation Specialist, where I was given the necessary tools to explore and heal my mind , body, and spirit. My search for peace within my inner self was one of my main goals and I'm now on the path to happiness. The closing ceremony performed in the sanctity of a majestic hand-carved sandstone cave was truly the highlight of this experience! Upon entering this sacred space we were immersed in Sanskrit chanting, healing oils and crystals, self-searching devotionals, and crystal singing bowls under the most amazing acoustics. A truly spiritual enlightenment! The owner, Jill Edelman, is entirely dedicated to her passion for healing and strives to be a confidant to each individual guest through their journey of enlightenment. I highly recommend Origins at Rancho de San Juan if you are looking for an experience of a lifetime where you can relax in luxury while enjoying the many unique experiences this resort has to offer. Thanks, Marilyn M - Oro Valley, AZ

Die Hhle ist eine wundervolle berraschung inmitten der Wstenlandschaft von Santa Fe. Sie ist modern und stilistisch sehr schn gestaltet, begeistert durch ihre besonders schn gearbeiteten Ornamente und Reliefe und besticht durch eine Vielzahl liebevoll arrangierter Dekorations-Details. Eine nicht zu erwartende Raumaufteilung und die zauberhafte Akustik, die man durch die Klangschalen erleben kann, ldt zum Verweilen ein - gerne auch ber Nacht. Denn im Kerzenschein und in ihrer in sich ruhenden Ausstrahlung ist die Hhle sicher unbeschreiblich romantisch. Danke fr diese wundervolle Erfahrung - gerne immer wieder - wir freuen uns auf die anderen beiden Hhlen des Knstlers. Heike & Michael (SilberTemme) aus Wien

We were privileged to visit the Cave at Ranchos de San Juan this June 2015 and were enchanted by our experience. The artist, Ra Paulette, invites you to use your senses to experience the cave and that is easy to do from the moment you walk through the door. Each wall niche and bench are beautifully created and the carved vaulting is amazing. We were invited to use sound as part of our experience and there are great bowls that give off different pitches that ring through the cave. There are also wonderful windows in the cave that allow views of the beautiful Chama River Valley and each window has a lovely bench for comfort. This cave and its wall carvings are a unique work of art and well worth the climb from the Inn. I believe that people can enjoy this cave at any time of the day and the vistas and light will be beautiful. One's senses are awakened by what this artist has made. We are so glad we had this experience. Jackie Kenley, San Francisco/Santa Fe
