We envision the land as a sanctuary. A place of rest and rejuvenation for teachers, seekers, healers, writers and artists, including all those dedicated to spiritual growth and protection of the planet in these times of transition and uncertainty.
Gatherings from multiple traditions will ensure the conservation of the land and its use solely for purposes of spiritual growth and training for those who seek to protect the planet through non-violent methods of education, protest and building sustainable alternatives. The sanctuary, built to connect the heart to the earth is the center for spiritual practice, training and growth.
Being here you will find a deep connection with nature while experiencing the magic of forests, hilltops and streams.
In the words of Mary Oliver;When I am among the trees,
especially the cedars and firs,
equally the arbutus and maples,
they give off such hints of gladness.
I would almost say that they save me, and daily.
I am so distant from the hope of myself
in which I have goodness and discernment,
and never hurry through the world
but walk slowly, and bow often.
Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out "Stay Awhile."
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, "Its simple", they say,
"and you too have come
into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine".
