About the Casa

Casa de Dom Inácio

The Casa de Dom Inacio is a tranquil healing centre designed to achieve the work of the entities as effectively as possible. It was at the instruction of St. Ignatius de Loyola and other entities to commence this work in Abadiania.

For over 41 years this sanctuary has been a sacred place for healing, restoring ones health and moving us forward on our journey through life as an unencumbered soul.

Joao Teixiera da Faria was instructed by the entities to build it in this small village as it is above a large crystal formation and it is a good energy conductor. It is painted blue and white and set in garden with beautiful flowering bushes, trees, lawn and a large deck overlooking the hills. It is open seven days a week. There are two sessions a day.

The current rooms are so named after the Portuguese word 'corrente' meaning chain. The many people and mediums meditating in these rooms form an energy chain that helps ground and hold the frequency of the entities at work. 

The casa is a complete healing experience. We can lie under the crystal beds, visit to the holy waterfall, work in the current, sit and meditate in the garden. Entities are working everywhere and the treatment has begun as soon as we arrive in Brazil or before.

Saint Ignatius of Loyola


Saint Ignatius of Loyola

Saint Ignatius of Loyola, also known as Ignacio (Íñigo) López de Loyola (December 24, 1491 – July 31, 1556), was the principal founder  of the Jesuits. He is famous as the compiler of the Spiritual Exercises, and he is remembered as a gifted spiritual director. Íñigo was born at the castle of Loyola, near Azpeitia, 16 miles southwest of San Sebastián in the Basque province of Guipúzcoa, Spain. The youngest of 13 children, Ignatius was only seven years old when his mother died. In 1517, Íñigo took service in the army. Severely wounded in the legs by a cannonball at the Battle of Pamplona (May 20, 1521), he spent months as an invalid in his father's castle. To this day, when he incorporates in John of God's body he has a severe limp.

During this period of recuperation he came to read a number of religious texts on the life of Jesus and the saints. He became fired with an ambition to lead a life of self-denying labor and to emulate the heroic deeds of Francis of Assisi and other great monastic leaders. On recovering he visited the Benedictine monastery of Montserrat (March 25, 1522), where he hung his military accouterments before an image of the Virgin. He then went and spent several months in a cave near the town of Manresa, Catalonia where he practiced the most rigorous asceticism. He is said to have had visions. The Virgin became the object of his chivalrous devotion.

During this time he drafted his Ejercicios espirituales (Spiritual Exercises), which describes a series of meditations to be undertaken by various people who came to him for spiritual direction, including in due time the early Jesuits. Ignatius was arrested twice after being accused of teaching the ways of God without the proper education. Both of these arrests happened during the Spanish Inquisition. In 1528 he entered the University of Paris where he remained over seven years, extending his literary and theological education and disturbing the students by attempting to interest them in the Spiritual Exercises.

By 1534 he had six key companions - Peter Faber (French), Francis Xavier (from Navarra, Spain), Alfonso Salmeron, Jacob Laines, and Nicholas Bobedilla (Spaniard), and Simon Rodrigues (a Portuguese). On August 15, 1534, he and the other six in St. Mary's Church, Montmartre founded the Society of Jesus - "to enter upon hospital and missionary work in Jerusalem, or to go without questioning wherever the pope might direct". In 1537 they travelled to Italy to seek papal approval for their order. Pope Paul III gave them a commendation, and permitted them to be ordained priests. They were ordained at Venice by the bishop of Arbe (June 24). They devoted themselves to preaching and charitable work in Italy, the renewed war between the emperor, Venice, the pope and the Ottoman Empire rendered any journey to Jerusalem inadvisable.

With Faber and Lainez, Ignatius made his way to Rome in October, 1538, to have the pope approve the constitution of the new order. A congregation of cardinals reported favorably upon the constitution presented, and Paul III confirmed the order through the bull Regimini militantis (September 27, 1540), but limited the number of its members to sixty. This limitation was removed through the bull Injunctum nobis (March 14, 1543). Ignatius was chosen as the first Superior General of his religious order, invested with the title of Father General by the Jesuits.

He sent his companions as missionaries around Europe to create schools, colleges, and seminaries. Juan de Vega, the ambassador of Charles V at Rome had met Ignatius there. Esteeming him and the Jesuits, when Vega was appointed Viceroy of Sicily he brought Jesuits with him. A Jesuit college was opened at Messina; success was marked, and its rules and methods were afterwards copied in other colleges. In 1548 Spiritual Exercises was finally printed, and he was briefly brought before the Roman Inquisition, but was released.

Ignatius wrote the Jesuit Constitutions, adopted in 1554, which created a monarchical organization. His main principle became the Jesuit motto: Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam ("for the greater glory of God"). The Jesuits were a major factor in the success of the Counter-Reformation. During 1553-1555 Ignatius dictated his life's story to his secretary, Father Gonçalves da Câmara. This autobiography is a valuable key for the understanding of his Spiritual Exercises. It was kept in the archives for about 150 years, until the Bollandists published the text in Acta Sanctorum. He died in Rome on July 31, 1556. He was beatified by Paul V on 27 July, 1609, and canonized by Gregory XV on 22 May, 1622.


About Adrienne

She is endorsed under a code of ethics by the Friends of the Casa. She lived in Abadiania in Brazil full time for two years from 2001 - 2003. For over 15 years she brought hundreds of people on guided healing journeys.

She has a wealth of experience over the years and has developed a reputation for excellent service and complete professionalism.

Adrienne is now working on a feature documentary about the worldwide health problem that plagues millions of people worldwide, the destruction of our gut bacteria/microbiome.

It Takes Guts: The Microbiome Revolution 

Adrienne is down to earth and accessible, believing that being emotionally intelligent, grounded, practical and heartfelt creates a strong foundation to a healthy relationship with spirituality and the life of a mystic. Her own illnesses and initial reasons for first visiting the Casa De Dom Inacio enable her to have genuine empathy for the sufferings of others. She is well versed and experienced in the treatment of co-dependency, addictions, emotional problems and the spiritual and energetic dilemmas that face us daily. She is also highly experienced in the field of nutrition.

Originally from New Zealand she grew up in Fiji and Australia. She lives in London.

She has a history of 20 years of healing and self-development, amongst other things she is a Shambhala Warrior, having completed two years Shambhala meditation training culminating in Warriors Assembly. She has also done aspects of the Gerson therapy, which is an elaborate detoxification involving juicing. 

She has restored her microbiome with fecal transplants and this new paradigm in medicine will change the way we view all disease and recovery methods.

She has witnessed many healings, some fast, some requiring patience. 

The Casa de Dom Inacio however, is distinguished by the extraordinary spiritual medical assistance that is available. When she arrived at the Casa she was ill and unable to walk far without being exhausted, having contracted a parasite in Thailand that compounded her other health issues and had rendered her tired and nauseous for eight months. She spent the night in Brasilia the night before, unable to leave the bed or eat. After her first invisible surgery, three weeks later, all her physical energy returned. She was so amazed she came home and flew straight back four weeks later.

Adrienne is grateful the entities gave her the opportunity to have profound healing and as a consequence, to be able to continue to pursue her goals of improving the lives of others.
