Cynthia Olivera

Cynthia J Olivera is a Master Aromatherapist and the Educational Director for Wisdom of the Earth. She teaches Wisdom of the Earth’s Level I and Level II Advanced Aromatherapy Sacred retreats with Audre Gutierrez. 

Cynthia J. Olivera is an author, a World Spirit Guide™️, medicine woman and sage, and teaches people to use medicinal essences to help shift old paradigms and patterns for dynamic self-healing. As the director and founder of the Inner Landscape Work™️, a movement/meditation process, she travels internationally to teach plant consciousness to the growing movement of medicinal aromatherapists, meditators, and sacred anointers.
 She is the author of The Book of Anointing, a spiritual journey into the rebellious art of sacred anointing. This art has been with us for thousands of years and has touched the hearts, minds, and souls of humanity. The anointers of the ancient world were wisdom- keepers and knew the power of essential oils to consecrate, heal, and awaken the soul. Cynthia Olivera’s book brings you into the sacred art of anointing as an Act of Love in the modern world, fine- tuning the connection with your divine self and the devic world of Mother nature.

“In writing this book, I strove to impart to my students and those who love working with oils, for pleasure and medicinally, the understanding of how to perceive their deeper properties, seeing the oils as the messengers of the deva kingdom and mediums of personal transformation. Reverence, joy, and consecration, are the key ingredients in the Act of Anointing.”

Cynthia has a B.S. in Education from New York University and taught at the prestigious Bank Street School for Children in NYC. She developed a movement process called The OMM (The Olivera Method of Movement) and taught teachers throughout New England and the Tri-state area.

Cynthia Olivera is not your usual aromatherapist. Her lineage is built upon a generation of mother curanderos from the Caribbean and backwards in time to high kingdoms of Africa and the Mediterranean. She happily touts her Puerto Ricana roots for her feisty, energetic, and friendly aura; but something deeper emerges when Cynthia plums hidden depths of knowledge with the ‘oils” for her clients and students, as a healer and a teacher of more than 15 years as the Educational Director of Wisdom of the Earth.

Cynthia is passionate about her students’ and clients’ rebellious nature. To be rebellious means that you are in charge of your soul, you stop the inertia within and start to love yourself, so that you can serve the World from a place of fullness. This Divine nature within awaits your willingness for co-creation of abundance, success, and happiness. As a spiritual mentor, Cynthia teaches workshops in Sacred Anointing enabling you to moving beyond the ordinary to the extraordinary within. As a World Spirit Guide, with the help of the essences and the powerful light energies awakening our consciousness, she can help you connect to the deepest part of yourself so that you can hear the voice within.
