I have exciting news for you from our dear friend and teacher, Rocio Alarcon, Ecuadorian ethno-botanist and shaman. A little over a year ago, Rocio suffered a brain aneurysm while in Ecuador. It was quite a shock to the many people who study with and love Rocio. We at the Organization of Nature Evolutionaries put together the Collective Support Fund in order to receive donations to help with Rocio’s health needs, care and recovery. What grew out of this was a dedicated group of Rocio’s students and others called the Collective Healing Network.
Rocio operates a beautiful botanical sanctuary, the Iamoe Center, in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest near the Yasuni National Park. She puts all of her personal earnings into this Botanical Reserve. During Rocio’s recovery she has been unable to work; therefore, the Iamoe Center has been under threat of closing. Because of the donations made to ONE with a specific target of the Collective Support Fund, Rocio was able to get the best medical care possible and the Iamoe Center was able to stay open.
Now this in and of itself is fantastic but there’s more - three new species of plants (never before seen) have been discovered at Iamoe. Over this past year because of your generous donations, the Iamoe Center has continued their work with these plants. The Genus name of these species will be Yasunacea (for the Amazonian Yasuni region) and one of the plant species may carry Rocio’s name. Rocio and Walter Palacios are now able to continue their research on these plants and the Iamoe Center will continue its good work in the Amazon Rainforest.
Thank you to all who donated so that this most amazing work could continue. This is just a small example of how your donations are put to work by ONE.
ONE’s annual fundraiser continues and we have added an exciting gift for your $50 donation. Rocio will be offering a teleseminar entitled "The Healing Power of Seeds" on Sunday, January 17th at 12:00 pm EST/9:00 am PST and 5:00 pm GMT (time in England). This teleseminar will be for one hour with 45 minutes of talk and 15 minutes for questions. This is the first time Rocio has done a teaching since her health compromise. You don’t want to miss this exceptional opportunity to hear the newly emerging teachings of this gifted teacher/shaman! Click here to go to the ONE fundraising page to sign up and donate.
We have so many new projects envisioned for this coming year and it is your support that helps them come to fruition. ONE love to you all.
