Origin Windows of the Earth
Cave Tour with Sacred Sound Experience
Enter one of the most stunning and transformative spaces within Mother Earth herself and luxuriate in sacred sound with this expanded cave tour experience!
World-renowned “cave digger” Ra Paulette has created a one-of-a-kind art-lined chamber bored into the center of a sandstone butte that towers majestically above the high desert floor near Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. Ra’s work has been detailed in the Academy Award-nominated documentary, “Cavedigger.”
Experiencing this artistic marvel will re-acquaint you with your true self and elicit a deep sense of connectedness. Notice how you feel more grounded and centered as your feet connect with the sand on the cave floor. Take in the full-sensory glory and wonder of Ra’s hand-hewn expression of universal beauty. Experience the silence of this still space, or create sacred sound within the chamber with voice, drum or our collection of crystal singing bowls.
Caves have long been sites of profound initiation and recognition of our deepest and most primal selves, our point of creation. This hand-carved spiritual hermitage will lead you on a powerful journey to your essential self. By percolating deep emotionality and possibility into your awareness, this space will effortlessly cause synchronistic resonance within the core of your being.
The cave experience.
At Origin, you have the opportunity to meditate, chant or experience sound healing within the cave. An upgrade to the Classic Cave Tour, our Windows of the Earth Sound Experience tours provide a transformative acoustic experience of sacred and healing sound. Bathe in the pure tones of our assorted crystal singing bowls for 15 minutes while inside the cave. As the sound vibrations open your heart and recalibrate your set point, dwell on the wonder of this earthen sanctuary, and revel in this multi-sensory offering by Origin founder and owner Jill Marie Inanna.
The graceful and sweeping sculpted high ceilings of each chamber juxtapose the expansive views from the 20 foot glass windows and circulate sound in a manner reminiscent of Gregorian chant in ancient cathedrals. 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.
Follow the meanderings of sacred sound as it winds a serpentine path through the cochlear folds of sandstone. Feel the reverberations of new beginnings and change.
Undoubtedly, you will never forget the experience of this cave and will leave with a profound and renewed sense of all that is possible, as you align with true creative forces!
We invite you to experience this unique environment for yourself. Guided sound experience tours of the cave sanctuary are available only by reservation for private tours through Origin. All participants must sign a waiver.
