Diving Deep Into Your Soul:  https://thesovereignheartland.org/divingdeepintoyoursoul



Micki and Lyman have co-created The Sovereign Heartland, a community alternative farm school that is fully inclusive of Neuro-unique student qualities and Indigenous wisdom. They opened this learning environment on line in 2021 because of the pandemic. They are excited to sponsor this special opportunity with core faculty, Carolyn Berry, as their first live Heartland offering at the Hawaiian City of Refuge: Diving Deep Into your Soul

Micki and Lyman are also the managers at Paliuli Farm where this experiential gathering is located. Together they handle logistics, cleaning, repairs, maintenance, grounds upkeep, coffee sales, and happily attending to guests' needs.

For Diving Deep Into Your Soul, Micki and Lyman will be driving, handling logistics, managing your accommodations, assisting Carolyn, and facilitating in alignment with Carolyn's vision.

When we find the path to our inner happiness we are on the path to our authentic self, to our own empowerment. You can expect to leave this experience with a new sense of your true self and real world tools for the continued growth of an inner joy not contingent on outside circumstances. 


“Thank you for the opportunity to be authentic. It touched me personally - to the core!”

“As soon as Carolyn gathered us together and began talking to us in her thoughtful and thought-provoking way, I realized I was in the presence of someone with wisdom, honesty, love and genuine happiness to share.”

 “I most enjoyed the acceptance, trust and valuable information I received so authentically - it was beautiful!”

"The experience for me was eye opening and I found there were things I needed to do within myself to increase my personal happiness and I am grateful for this opportunity.  It is obvious that Carolyn is Happy on Life and she definitely knows how to pass it forward."   

"Carolyn was so perceptive. I was so amazed at how with warmth and a smile she was able to affect each person individually."  

"As soon as Carolyn gathered us together and began talking to us in her thoughtful and thought-provoking way, I realized I was in the presence of someone with wisdom, honesty, love and genuine Happiness to share." 

"The format was informal, yet organized and purposeful. She created an atmosphere that was intimate, relaxed and safe - yet the ideas she created discussions around stretched my thought in new directions. I was impressed by her ability to facilitate the group, keeping us focused on meaningful discourse and fostering candor and openness."

"By the end I felt more equipped and empowered. I have more tools in my toolbox for living a life full of sustainable happiness!"

This sacred place, quiet and close to nature, with sweeping views of the ocean, plays an important role in the work, and fun, we'll be having.
