News and Upcoming Gatherings

"There are having flowers in Spring, breezes in Summer, moon in Autumn, snows in Winter. If there is nothing worrying over you, it will be the best seasons at all times."
--Gautama Buddha

Summer comes blazing in with the hot winds of what has been sown. Now is the time to witness the growing of deeds, the welling up of your prayers, both those meant and those unheard. The world sings with you, the moon and stars shine with you, the sun blazes with you. This connection shapes who we all are and in it we are all connected. We are never apart, there is no isolation when our hearts pump as one. There is no division when we are all our mothers children. We are born of her words, and our lives flow like streams of sentences upon her face. Some of us gather in lakes, some in oceans, but when we meet we merge as one, as if there were no difference. Steadfast your heart with love, and remind the others.

We are SO excited to announce that we have purchased 161 acres in Santa Margarita area! An angel of a donor answered 30+ years of prayer and is donating $150k to us and financing a mortgage of $200K for the remaining cost of the land. Finally we have a home for all our ceremonies. Our prayers will resonate all year long from the new land. As the sole owners we will be able to offer ceremonies within our own scope and rules! Let us flourish and thrive!
When it's available we will be inviting everyone out to see the land, come home! We will need donations for certain amenities, think bathrooms, showers, camping, etc. Help us put down our roots! Aho!

Novel Coronavirus / COVID-19
Stay tuned about our upcoming ceremonies. We still do not know exactly when/if or how these ceremonies will occur. As of now we are trying our best to keep everyone safe and still offer ceremonies. This might be through Zoom calls, or very reduced in person ceremonies. Stay tuned.
Now is the time to be safe, and be in prayerful solitude. Pay attention to what the CDC says about it. Protect each other through following the guidelines to stop it's transmission. Ground yourself, and do not give into the fear. Let us all pray for our community, and the global community. Be well!
