Bridging Heaven and Earth

An intimate retreat exploring the veil between the worlds…

Five days, six nights on secluded ocean-front property in British Columbia, Canada.

September 4 – 9, 2024


Do you intuit there is an unconscious belief, program or behavior that is veiling your true nature?

Do you long to break free of these limitations?

Are you ready to experience heaven right now, here on earth, within the boundaries of time and space?

We invite you to join us…

On breathtaking oceanfront property in British Columbia, immersed in the silence and beauty of this mystical land, we will ground in the nature of earth, explore the nature of heaven and investigate the veil that separates the two.


This work is an extension of Olivia’s teachings in Conscious Dying for Conscious Living


We will walk the land, forest bathe, swim in a crystal-clear lake and spend time in the grave.

We will open our senses using art, movement, writing, group process, contemplative practices and ceremony to release the veil and befriend our true nature.

The sacred container and intimacy of the group will provide the opportunity to expose, release and radically transform what no longer serves you.

If you are ready to experience Heaven on Earth then say ‘Yes!’ today to this extraordinary adventure.

Olivia Rosemarie

 Death Midwife, and founder of Sacred Crossings, Olivia is passiontate about Death Education for Conscious Living.

“When we practice the art of dying, we practice Letting. Letting it be, letting it out, letting it in, letting it go. This Letting opens us to a profound and unconditional love for self, for others, for everything on earth. This love is what some call God, I know it as a frequency, the essence of Heaven.”

In 2016, Olivia inherited this sacred Denman Island property from her long time friend and soul sister, Ella Day. Olivia and Ella dreamed of creating a healing sanctuary where people could connect to the source of love to transform and heal all limitations. She is thrilled to now manifest this dream by offering the Bridging Heaven and Earth Retreat in memory of her dear friend.  To learn more about Olivia, visit: The Death Midwife

“This land is magick, gentle, and alive. I felt intimately held by the plants, animals, wind, waters, and the wonderful participants in our sacred container. This place is a world of dreams, limitless possibilities, intensity, and tenderness. One of my favorite moments was forest bathing whilst listening to the cedars sing. It was a truly transformative retreat. I can’t wait to go back.” – Michelle Bankson
