Bliss Forth With Happy Oasis
Happy Heavenly Oasis authored the world’s first interactive Blissology play book devoted to raising conversational kundalini via exercises in awareness that she calls Blissiplines. Bliss Conscious Communication: Transmuting Ordinary Chats Into Extraordinary Conversations and Uncivilized Ecstasies, the nation’s #1 best-selling poetry book in 2002, were the first books and foundational catalysts that inspired today’s blossoming Blissology movement. After leading more than 65 Playshops For Blissologists in 2012, with approximately 3000 participants, due to multiple requests, Ms. Oasis is, for the first time, creating interactive courses to certify Blissologists in 2013, starting on Maui in January then in San Rafael, CA in June.
Meanwhile, on perpetual slow, enjoyable tour, Happy continues to offer Playshops for Blissologists, while founding Blissology University, affectionately called Bliss U or B.U. (Be You!) for short. Happy is the editor of Bliss U News, a pragmatic ecstatic monthly exploration featuring insights, humor and provocative interviews with the world’s leading Blissologists. Yes, I’d love to receive Bliss U News this month.
Happy is what she coined an “Adventure Anthropologist” to describe her unusual peripatetic lifestyle. She has lived abroad for more than a decade thus far, starting at age 16 in Tasmania, mostly backpacking into remote, far-off-the-grid locations in more than a dozen countries, adopted by tribal families, also as an adventure guide, translator and scholar in Alaska, Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Canada, California, the Himalayas and beyond.
She happily volunteered at refugee camps in Southeast Asia and at numerous orphanages and ashrams in India. Serving as the coordinator at Thailand’s largest meditation jungle monastery, she introduced raw vegan and wild-foraged foods to the monks, nuns and international backpacking meditators.
After two decades of eclectic health studies, from universities to mountain tops, forest healers to wilderness sages to centers such as OHI, Optimum Health Institute, Happy served as a yoga teacher of kunjal kriya and translator at The Spa on Ko Samui Island of Thailand where she first taught what she had learned about organic raw vegan cleansing, colonics and natural therapies gleaned from living in the wild.
Today Happy is a Health & Happiness Consultant with a selective clientele.
As the founder, philanthropist and CVO of the Raw Spirit Fest, an educational 501c3 non profit, the world’s largest raw vegan eco-music- peace events, 200 festivals and mini-fests between 2004 and 2012, which have brought together more raw vegan leaders than any other for “Inspiration, Education and Celebration”, Happy is considered to be the “Mother of Today’s Raw Vegan Movement”.
Happy encourages us to eat joyfully and lovingly with awareness; intuitively, gratefully, and inclusively while honoring the spirit in all life, remembering to embrace not only more organic, but also local, wild, edible plants whenever possible. She has taught and demonstrated these principles interactively at fun-loving, feral “Let’s Get Wild!” edible-plant-foraging and al fresco-dining retreats each year in more than a dozen eco-systems thus far.
Happy was honored with the distinction of being featured as one of “The Happiest One Hundred” by America’s best-selling female author, Marci Shimoff, in her NYT #1 best-seller Happy For No Reason. The “Story of the Smiling Man” in Happy For No Reason features a Readers’ Digest version of the inspiring story of Happy’s name, that was featured on Oprah.
As a former athlete with unusual strength, Happy is also a Fitness Mentor and Sleep Coach who loves teaching selective clientele how to do oodles of pushups, climb mountains, skip while singing, prepare delicious simple raw vegan meals without appliances, and enjoy swimming in wild, sacred and beautiful places.
Happy is a Songwriter, Poet, Busker and Meditation Friend with plans of bringing forth more Meditation Celebrations, Slow Down & Sleep Retreats and Wise Wild Woman events. Feel free to inquire at email@example.com if you would like to host her or attend such events.
www.BlissologyUniversity.com is the world’s first, now-germinating, research university devoted to the study of bliss, Blissology, via exploring the arts, sciences, ethical and spiritual practices, focusing upon the perspectives, lifestyles, and heavenly habits that create conditions for joy, happiness, contentment and bliss, namely the Blissiplines.
www.WildVegetarianAdventures.com Decades ago while hiking in the Himalayas, Happy founded Wild Vegetarian Adventures, “Joyous Worldwide Journeys in Sacred Wild Places”, including upcoming Havasu Falls Helicopter Hiking Swimming Vision Adventure Quest May 24-26, 2013.
www.RawSpirit.com In the jungle, meditating beneath the full moon, while serving as Coordinator of a jungle monastery, Happy first dreamed up the Raw Spirit Festival, what would become the largest & longest lived 501c3 non-profit raw vegan-eco-peace-music festival, based in Sedona, Arizona, for “education, inspiration and celebration”.
While residing on the South Pacific’s wildest island, Motu Aotea, of New Zealand, Happy compiled two decades of her poetry into t Uncivilized Ecstasies, New Zealand’s best selling adventure poetry book. In the flow of authoring Bliss Conscious Communication, Happy coined the terms Blissologist, Blissiplines, May The Bliss Be With You, Myriad Blissings, Let’s Activate The Miraculous and Bliss Forth! Her Bliss book is the world’s first interactive blissful communications playbook and is sought out at Communications classes by high schools, colleges, universities, spiritual retreats, churches, therapists and more.
The Happy Volunteer. The primary sponsor of the Raw Spirit Festival for which she essentially volunteered for eight years, Ms. Oasis realized at a young age that it was not her destiny to bear children due to health concerns. Therefore, she chose to commit herself to volunteering, which she has done for decades with, for example, Habitat for Humanity, Mother Theresa in New Delhi, as a trekking guide in the Himalayas, Tasmania and Alaska… as the International Meditation Retreat Coordinator at Thailand’s Wat Suon Mokkh Jungle Monastery; as well as being leading volunteer or volunteer manager at numerous temples, ashrams, monasteries, refugee camps, farms, marine biology research programs, tribal hamlets and orphanages.
Founding editor-publisher of Inspiring Times, Happy’s prolific articles, stories, poetry and philosophy have featured in books, magazines and newspapers internationally.
While in solitary refinement as a forest fire lookout for nearly a dozen years on a mountain top, or backpacking broadly and abiding on New Zealand’s remote, virtually-uninhabited Motu Aotea (White Cloud Island), Happy authored the Earth’s only wild, raw vegan, international travelers’ adventure poetry book, Uncivilized Ecstasies, a New Zealand best-seller, and Bliss Conscious Communication, the world’s first interactive playbook that heightens conversational kundalini, and is the basis of her playshops.
A lifelong, gentle-but-persistent, environmental, peace, cultural and social activist, Ms. Oasis has been instrumental in winning several environmental cases, the most recent located beside her Arizona home when she appealed to and joined forces with the Army Corps of Engineers to stop developers from illegally building condominiums on a gorgeous little canyon lake which the developers destroyed. Upon her counsel, the Army Corps oversaw the developers’ replanting of hundreds of trees, which with Happy’s prompting, culminated in the developer donating the unusually scenic land for a permanent open-space park now annexed and managed by the City of Prescott, AZ. Consequently, Oasis has worked as a consultant and guest lecturer to environmental organizations and at universities.
As the Chief Visionary Officer, Happy’s dream is to see Raw Spirit Festivals and other similar, cooperating, off-shoot, next-generation festivals happen every weekend of the year, not only nationally, but also around the planet. Due to diligent persistence and determination to follow the highest spiritual truth in a pragmatic way, one of her dreams has come true. How do we know? There were only four raw vegan restaurants in America in 2001; today there are more than 200 with hundreds more in dozens of nations. Moreover, guess what is the most accepted weight loss diet this year in the USA? Yes, raw veganism. This is huge. Alas, people everywhere around the world are finding out about what has been for centuries nature’s best-kept health secret.
Although there may never again be a festival that combines Spirit (via meditation, intention, visualization, peace prayers, yoga, uplifting music, inspired poetry, ethical and wisdom teachings) with Raw, hence “Raw Spirit”, Happy is now mentoring other young raw vegan festival producers.
Happy concocted the idea of the Raw Spirit 100 Club in August of 2010, which hallmarks the raw and healthy-living movement’s first ever service organization of seasoned professionals who have been friends of the Raw Spirit Festival.
However, Ms. Oasis has moved, emphasizing that she is foremost a spiritual ethics and meditation teacher, blissologist, poet, songwriter, swimmer, oriental and natural philosopher, linguist, adventure anthropologist, celebrant and wilderness guide who still frequently sleeps beneath the stars, rather than a business office administrator, so is choosing to reduce the huge work load of festival administration by instead offering intimate retreats, seminars and classes at other people’s festivals rather than large festivals so that she can return what she loves most: playing music to one friend (of any species) at a time while walking or skipping through the wilderness, swimming in oceans, rivers and streams; enjoying sleeping, wondering, cuddling, and pillow talk; praying, imagining, silently receiving then share inspirational affirmations, parables, and poetry, gazing into nature, running like a gazelle, and slowly exploring this incredibly wild and beautiful planet one precious breath~step~moment by moment.
Prior to Raw Spirit, Happy was hired by Princess Cruises as a professional photographer, naturalist and anthropologist who researched, lived and choreographed four educational, inspirational, comedy Adventures-In-Alaska shows for an audience of 2000 four times per week while aboard the Dawn Princes ship throughout the summer.
An inspirational orator herself at symposiums, retreats, temples, churches, schools, colleges, and universities as well as on TV shows, radio shows and environmentally-educative cruise ships, rather than claiming the stage at her own festivals, Ms. Oasis loved offering others the Raw Spirit Festival stages in enthusiastic support of the many astute speakers, authors, chefs and entertainers who encourage us to achieve astounding heights of health and harmony to benefit both humanity and the Earth.
Happy has been on perpetual tour for more than three decades, slowly exploring this magnificent planet while serving people and projects that call her along the way. See the Events & Schedule pages if you’d like to join the fun, including fascinating forays with www.WildVegetarianAdventures.com. Hope you will join us at these ecstatic events to enjoy the gift of life in the most conscious, healthful, joyous ways imaginable. Exulted Friend, Myriad Blissings To You, Wherever & Whatever You Do.
Let’s Activate The Miraculous.
Bliss Forth With Love,
