"Trees are sanctuaries.  Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth...they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life."  Herman Hesse

Audre Gutierrez

Audre Gutierrez is a Master Medicinal Aromatherapist, and is the Co-founder and Owner of Wisdom of the Earth Essential Oils. She consults with clients about Aromatherapy use (in person or by phone or Skype); and offers the WOTE Level I and II classes at Wisdom of the Earth in Cornville, AZ and via Zoom.   She also teaches private Level I classes in person and online. She offers extensive aromatherapy knowledge and a deep, intuitive connection with both the Plant Kingdom and her individual clients.

Together with Cynthia Olivera and Barry Kapp, Audre authored a beautiful compilation of stories and accounts about 19 essential oils called Voices of Light, Voices of Love:  Messages from the Plants and Trees.  This book is filled with life-changing stories from WOTE Level I students who wrote about their personal journey with an essential oil.  Carefully curated and edited, these personal accounts of the unique, spiritual connection between humans and the Plant Kingdom make this an inspirational aromatherapy book unlike any other.

Audre Gutierrez has a Master of Arts in Teaching and pursued Doctoral Studies in Organizational Behavior at the Wharton School of Business.  She has studied Aromatherapy in France with Dr. Malte Hozzel, and in the US with Barry Kapp, John Steele, and Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt, among others.

Cynthia Olivera

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

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.

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 Rican 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.
