Happy’s infectious love of life is an inspiration. Our world would be a more harmonious place if we all adopted Happy’s Bliss Conscious Communication tools. I enjoy teaching & co-facilitating with her. I highly recommend that you read the book, and, most importantly, practice her suggestions!” ~ Scott Catamas, Emmy award-winning writer, producer and internationally acclaimed “Love Coach”

“This book is a life-changer for me and for everyone I interact with!!!  Wow!!! How does it get any better than this?! In Joy!” ~ Kazzrie

“I am inquiring to order a copy of  Bliss Conscious Communication. I saw a copy and borrowed it for a day. Since then I have felt a longing to be with it much more. I love what I read and feel that it’s an essential tool to have with me.”  ~ Laura Lee

“Thank you, Happy Oasis, for being a bright, shining star and explorer of the higher frontiers! With infinite courage you are birthing the most incredible enlightenment! Bliss Conscious Communication is one of the most important books on the planet. The full activation of Blissology is a sacred taboo in the conspiracy against happiness masquerading at large, and Bliss Conscious Communication is the perfect, highly intelligent, witty addition!” ~ David Richanbach

“You have been in my heart, Happy.  The funny thing is, I’ve been carrying around your beautiful Bliss book… Almost like having my spiritual sister with me in my pocket!” ~ Lea Saslav

International Praise for Uncivilized Ecstasies:

Hailed as the country’s #1 best-selling poetry book in 2002, the year the
1st edition was released in New Zealand, the 4th edition has sold out.
Book may be reserved at:

“Happy Oasis is Rumi in fresh skin.” ~ Shambala School of New Zealand

“Uncivilized Ecstasies are inspired celebrations of nature and spirit guaranteed to whet your soul’s appetite whenever you are hankering for playful yet profound adventure poetry. This free-spirited poet has lived much of her life slowly traveling the planet out of a backpack.”  ~ Grey Lynn Review

“A juicy mango for the soul.” ~ Kirtana

“Whether abiding as a hermit on a New Zealand island, a guide in the Himalayas, a meditation teacher in a Thai coconut grove, a naturalist in Alaska a forest fire lookout in alpine Arizona, or a caretaker of orphans and refugees in India and Burma, the poetry of Happy Oasis exudes joy.” ~ The Bulletin

Bliss-filled Praise for the Playshop for Blissologists:

“Over the years I have had the opportunity to witness many presentations on positive living, the law of mind action and the importance of developing a compassionate heart to bless the human condition. However, seldom have I experienced a presenter who consciously embodies these positive principles in her moment to moment relationships with others. Happy has an ability to assist others in genuine exploration of the sacred art of authentic heartfelt communication.  Her presentation, and example, leads participants into those lovely enhanced realms of intimate communication that we all seek with one another. I enthusiastically recommend her as a presenter to groups seeking a unique experience in heartfelt communication.”  ~ Gary Layman,  Reverend of The Circle of Radiant Heart, Medford, OR Author of I AM Light

“Dear Happy, Thank you for the amazing workshop.  I didn’t get a chance to warn you that I might not smile very much because it actually sometimes hurts my face to smile because of having been hit in the temple (chewing, laughing and smiling are all affected), but it turned out I felt so energized by your brilliance that I could really smile most of the time. It very much cheered me up and I have been in a mire of depression since my head injury (the past two years) and even before. You are the most inspiring person I have ever met. I deeply respect your happiness and I accept the medicine that I learned tonight from you. (I call it medicine because it actually made me somewhat queasy to be so focused on happiness, as it was changing my brain chemistry, but it was ultimately the best thing for me.) You remind me of my hero Peace Pilgrim. Thank you for teaching us that we have no choice but to rejoice.” ~ Vanessa Nowisky, Ashland, OR

“Happy, Thank you for being YOU. I love what you are doing with sharing your love and bliss!” ~ David Warr, Chocolatree, Sedona, AZ

Yes, “Bliss Forth!” I love that Happy Oasis expression.”  ~ Debra Haviland

“Magic happened when Scott Huckabay came on stage…..Wow….the dancing was amazing. Needless to say, grounding in the sunset meditation that evening was so deep, so empty, so luminous as we tuned into our true natures of luminous clear blue sky minds and amplified heart fields. Wow! Jasmuheen was so grounded, so articulate, so radiating of health and vitality. Thanks and praises.” ~ Liz Faller, Dance Professor, Prescott College

“Happy, I want to thank you for the amazing time at the festival recently. I had a profound experience with all the lectures and learning about the foods, etc. I can’t wait to come back next year and I am planning to bring a large group of people with me, maybe 35 or more from Oregon.” ~ Sentient Star

“I know how much effort goes on behind the scenes to coordinate such a massive event, and I appreciate every ounce that was put in by the dedicated and loving souls that pulled the festival together. I remain in awe. THANK YOU, HAPPY. I was also blessed, whilst waiting to have copies of Amazing Grace signed, to witness how patient and present David Wolfe is within his interactions with people and their yearning for knowledge. I was a fan before, but now I am A FAN. Nick Good also touched me with his generosity, presence and energy. Oh, and the food of the festival was AMAZING, every bite.” ~ Michelle Purnel

“Hi Happy, Congrats on the Wonder Filled Raw Spirit Fest. Everyone I talked to said it was so inspiring! Thanks, you’re doing it for all of us!” ~ Diana Owens, Psychotherapist

“The festival was awesome. I loved all the beautiful connections I made with people. The music was great. The talks were interesting. Jasmuheen’s Monday workshop was really inspiring.”  ~ Jeff Allen, Performer

“I thought the Raw Spirit Festival was awesome with so many wonderful booths.” ~ Feather Jones, Herbalist, Presenter

“It was such a beautiful experience and you and your team did such a fantastic job of organizing it.” ~ Linda Zechowy

“If it weren’t for the Raw Spirit Fest, I’d still be microwaving my frozen dinners before writing letter to my senator over a cup of coffee. Thanks to all who contributed to the event for the positively cellular transformation!” ~ Jaye Beldo

“Just wanted to thank YOU, Happy, for providing a space where we could all come together as family and community. I learned so much over the 2 weeks in Sedona and made life long friendships. That’s what it’s all about, right? Every hour I put in was so worth it to me.” ~ Frank C, Raw Spirit Festival, Voluntary Board Vice President

“Thank you so much for helping me with the accommodations. Everything was perfect! It was a very successful event. I enjoyed every minute of it!” ~ Mike Adams, Presenter at Raw Spirit, Health Ranger, Natural News 

“Raw food is exploding in popularity among the health-conscious. Well done Happy. I knew you could do it!” ~ Mike Anderson, Presenter

“I thank all of you, especially Happy, for your hospitality, love, and affection.” ~ Solar-gazing presenter, HRM of India

“Wow, what a country – I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a mix of beauty in such a way before. Sedona is rich in energy as the vortexes here are so profound. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful and the richness of creativity truly outstanding. Art galleries abound with the most powerful work plus shops overflow with diverse textiles, jewelry and more. The Raw Spirit Festival is filled with the healthiest looking faces with glowing skin, clear eyes and big-grinned people from all backgrounds and ages who mill about the various stalls or take food together on the grass as they listen to a huge line up of enthusiastic speakers. While many have come here to celebrate their life as raw foodists, others have been on the path for so long they are now ready for something new.” ~ Raw Spirit Presenter, Jasmuheen of Australia

“The people at the Raw Spirit Fest aren’t just ‘health-conscious beings; they’re artistic, poetic, deep, spiritual, open, and loving.  It’s much more than just an ‘eat raw’ campaign.  When I told Happy that I’m struggling with the transition, she invited me into stay at her home as if I were her brother. Everyone welcomed me with open arms, didn’t pass judgments, gave me advice, and told me to take my time.  They were very receptive to my poetry and showed me more love than I’ve ever felt.  I’ve performed in front of 15,000 people once, and this performance meant more to me than that, because of the energy and love that was in the room.  I will be attending for the rest of my life.” ~ Apollo Poetry (became interim Vice President before being let go)

“You did a great job with food AND parking. I met some people in line for meals who I’m still in touch with – we never would have met otherwise. Who needs to be in a hurry in Sedona in the sun shine?” ~ Suki Zoe of the U.K.

“I have learned the true meaning of community and found a sense of peace about life that will be with me forever.  From the magical presenters to the amazing participants and the awesome volunteers I found an interaction that is unprecedented. The vibration that flowed throughout the festival was so filled with love and harmony one could drink it and many did! It was an honor to share space with every one of you and I look forward to doing it again and again. Thank you.” ~ Aeon, Director of Marketing for Raw Spirit Fest, member of the team responsible for its phenomenal growth

“I enjoyed the experience of being at the Raw Spirit Festival very much; I found the people to be lovely, adventurous and open and I found Sedona to be a very inspirational place to be, indeed!” ~ Kathy Zavada, Performer

“Happy, Raw Spirit Fest was my first and not my last. It was the most amazing 3 days. Maybe we can even make it longer as the years go on. Those 3 days lasted for 2 weeks emotionally and mentally on a high of sorts. The food at the festival was divine, the speakers were so inspirational and the music was wonderful. I really enjoyed Kathy Zavada. Wow, I play her music every day and use it with a meditation class I do daily. The workshops were wonderful too. Sedona was a beautiful location; the peace was beyond human understanding. The people I met from all over the world were amazing, we all had one thing in common-love, and oneness and the stories are still with me.” ~ Sat Nam

“I think that the Raw Spirit Movement is the future. The people involved with this movement are the best people I have met in a lifetime and what they believe in is sustaining life. The Raw Spirit Festival Will change your life. As a non profit, the founder makes about $6 per hour, supports a whole house of  people wishing to co-create better lives. She works 10 to 12 hours a day because she believes in raw food and what it can do for her and humanity. She is willing to open her home to strangers. and allow them the loving space to change their eating habits and their lives. That’s what the Raw Spirit Festival is about: Healthy Living, Eco Sustainable Solutions including electric car builders, wind technology, recycled clothing.” ~ Eddie Ladd

“Hello Happy, I am most grateful for all the work you have put into making Raw Spirit such a success!  I’m happy to contribute in any way I am able. Looking forward to next year.” ~ Joseph

“What a professional event! It was like Expo West only all raw. I reunited with so many long time players in the raw vegan scene and met several more I had only communicated with online. ~ Tonya Kay, Bi-coastal Athlete and Actress

“I am writing from my hotel room at the Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona, Arizona. Raw Spirit is in a beautiful setting nestled among red rock cliffs and gorgeous desert terrain.  Since arriving, I’ve been wanting to explore some of the beautiful trails but because of the festival’s magnitude and not having my handsome hiking partner here with me, I’ve been staying mostly on site.” ~ Natasha

This long, comprehensive testimonial is by Mike Adams of Natural News:

“I’m bringing you this report live from the Raw Spirit Festival taking place this weekend in Sedona, Arizona ( The festival brings together thousands of participants, over a hundred raw foods vendors and dozens of top-notch speakers, authors and artists who have so far delivered an unforgettable experience in raw living foods and high-vibration living. Organized by the delightful visionary Happy Oasis (yes, that’s her real name), the festival has grown ten times in size over last year’s festival, bringing the attendee count to well over 2,500 (and probably closer to 3,000). For a festival focused on raw living foods nutrition — which was barely a blip on the radar of mainstream America just two years ago — this is phenomenal growth. Raw foods is going mainstream!

So aside from the obvious things like stuffing your face with raw cacao and goji berries, what else is there to see and do at this festival? First off, the people here are incredible. From open-hearted meditation masters to everyday consumers looking for answers for improving their lives, you’ll find the people here to be amazingly open-minded, generous and enthusiastic. (Thank you to all the many people who introduced yourselves to me. I love your feedback and compliments!)

Far from being what one of my friends called a “hippy fest,” I found the Raw Spirit Festival to be a Happy Fest! Where else can you find a tent entirely dedicated to the activity of hugging? Where else can you see outrageously masterful musicians rapping out improvisational mind-bending music that’s good enough to be the headline soundtrack for a major motion picture? On top of this, you also get to immerse yourself in an endless stream of raw foods chocolate, raw nut mixes, high-vibration salads, raw food bars, massage booths, hemp clothing, and fermented living foods!

Amid all the incredible activities I’ve already mentioned, you can watch raw foods preparation demonstrations, listen to top authors speak about living foods nutrition, and enjoy a complimentary dinner plate featuring a unique and delicious raw sprout dish made with a spirulina superfoods dressing. I ate it up with a big purple smile! (Don’t worry, the spirulina rinses right off your lips… but you look hilarious while eating it!) the festival has already been a wonderful journey of food, fun, healing and artistry, and it’s only beginning!

Unlike many festivals, this event actually has really clean restrooms with — and this is remarkable — Dr. Bronner’s soaps at the hand washing stations! (Yeah for Dr. Bronner’s soap!) despite these expected growing pains and organizational challenges, I think the Raw Spirit Festival is worth whatever it takes to get here. The food, the people and the vibe are all exceptional, and there’s no question that I’m coming back next year for the 2008 festival. You may want to mark it on your own calendar too, even if you’re from far away. I’ve met people here from Australia, Sweden, Peru, Canada, Germany, Japan and many other countries. It’s worth coming to from anywhere on the planet; especially if you have an interest in being part of the fast-growing movement to save this planet through sustainable living and mass spiritual awakening.

Of course, you could also come just for the chocolate, and you wouldn’t be disappointed. But there’s much more to see and experience here at the Raw Spirit Festival. You may learn a new secret about nutrition, discover a new living foods recipe, learn a new chi-gong ritual, meet an inspiring artist or discover an author or speaker who shows you how to look at the world in a constructive new way.” ~ Mike Adams

“Happy, Thanks for your service organizing the RSFs. I loved them. Sorry to see you go from the movement’s standpoint, but from a personal standpoint, I am happy that you are even happier now. Love and hugs.” ~ Daryl Elliot, Founder of the sizable Las Vegas Raw Food Meetup

“Thank you Happy! It was an honor and lots of fun being a vendor this past weekend!  Lots of beautiful souls coming in all ages from 17 months to 110 years!  It was also a very successful weekend for Uriel Creation, for which I am eternally grateful to God and the Universe!  Hope to see you again soon! Lots of Peace Love & Blessings.” ~ Karen Kaufman of Uriel Creations

“Greetings Happy, It was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for being the inspiration behind this wonderful festival. I would like to be a vendor for your next one.  I hope you keep me in mind when you have other events as well. Thank You.” ~ Chef Cesily De-Angelo

“Hi Beautiful! I want to extend a very heart felt and loving thank YOU to you for inviting me to speak and be such an integral part of your extraordinary Raw Spirit Festival!

“I have meaning to write to you ever since I attended the Raw Spirit Festival New Year’s 2011- 2012 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. I just wanted to tell you how very much I enjoyed the whole entire weekend.  It was perfect from beginning to end.  The presenters, the informative and varied booths, the food and music were so balanced, informative, and most of all fun.  It was the best way ever to welcome in the New Year and truly got me off on the right foot! Thank you so much.” ~ Judie Christian

“Dear Heavenly Happy, Chris and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Raw Spirit New Years 2012 -2012 and want to thank you so much for making this possible and holding space for all of us to converge (as light beings, bearers and all those juicy good things). We met a lot of open hearts and minds and feel blessed to have been a part of such a beautiful event.
