MEET OUR FOUNDER
MY NAME IS ARIA NAIDOO AND I BELIEVE THAT SACRED ENTHEOGENIC PLANTS HOLD THE POTENTIAL TO BRING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE WORLD.
IN MY MID 20'S, I MOVED TO THE USA FROM SOUTH AFRICA FOR A TECH CAREER, AND SPENT A DECADE GRAPPLING WITH DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND BURNT-OUT WHILST SEARCHING FOR HAPPINESS IN MATERIAL SUCCESS AND EXTERNAL LOVE.
IN MY YOUTH, I HAD BEEN DEEPLY SPIRITUAL, PRACTICING BUDDHISM, YOGA AND MEDITATION, YET THE MORE WORLDLY SUCCESS I FOUND, THE MORE DISCONNECTED I FELT FROM WHAT I REALLY WANTED IN LIFE.
MY LIFE WAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN WHEN MY MOTHER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER, AND MY FIANCE SUDDENLY BROKE OFF OUR ENGAGEMENT. I WENT SEARCHING FOR HEALING IN SOMATIC MOVEMENT (DANCE), SPIRITUALITY AND MUSIC, WHICH LED ME TO SACRED PLANT MEDICINES. WITH THESE MAJESTIC TEACHERS, I HAVE FOUND FAR MORE THAN HEALING. I'VE EXPLORED THE LANDSCAPE WITHIN, MAKING PEACE WITH MY SHADOW, AND LEARNING TO LOVE MYSELF UNCONDITIONALLY. I FOLLOWED MY PASSION FOR MUSIC, AND ACCEPTED MY AUTHENTIC SELF, ATTRACTING MORE LOVE AND JOY INTO MY LIFE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED.
IN 2019, I WAS CALLED BY SACRED ACACIA TO HELP OTHERS HEAL AND SHINE, LEADING TO A 5-YEAR CEREMONIAL FACILITATION MENTORSHIP AND A SIGNIFICANT APPRENTICESHIP IN PERU.
I AM DEDICATED TO OUR MISSION OF HELPING OTHERS ON THEIR JOURNEYS TO EXPLORE WITHIN, SURRENDER TO THE FLOW, AND CONNECT WITH THE DIVINE THAT IS IN ALL THINGS.
HELPING PEOPLE TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES THROUGH ABUNDANCE IN FINANCES, RELATIONSHIPS, HEALTH AND TIME
"This an incredible community that provides transcendent experiences/ceremonies. The events held in this community are always safe spaces for everyone to come and be their authentic selves. All are welcome, and the atmosphere is loving and kind. Every aspect of these events is curated with intention in order to allow you to connect with your authentic nature and open your heart to the magic of life. Aria is on the leading edge of taking people from healed to thriving through these events and puts her whole heart into everything she does. She leads with passion and intuitive creativity. I highly recommend experiencing the magic of this community and watching your life shift in such a positive way as a result."
