Join us in Making a Dream Come True!
Raise funds for Natures Gate Retreat Center start up costs. The donations will be used for legal consulting and filing fees to get “officially” started as a non profit organization. Our goal is to raise $2,500.
Our Mission Statement
Nature’s Gate is a healing and creative arts retreat center for children and adults focused on personal empowerment and freedom. Our mission is to create a thriving arts community and a model land stewardship through conscious co-creation with the spiritual realms that enliven the land and community.
Since moving to upstate New York in 2015, much has been accomplished through activities of light and ceremonial work. We started off our first month on the land with our First Council Fire in the fall of 2015,. The ceremony was dedicated to the First Nations and we had many nations dancing and drumming with us in spirit as we stood around the sacred fire drumming. The next year, we were asked to hold a Second Council Fire. Elandara was guided to put up a 22’ Ceremonial Lakota design Tipi and gather in honor of the Star Nations. During late fall of 2016 we were graced to host two activities of light on the land with The Ascended Masters Foundation Community of the New Times. Phaeryn Sheehan channeled Chief Joseph in the tipi and the following day she led us in a Celtic Tree ceremony for our ancestors.
Elandara was guided to "anchor the Diamond Light" into the Medicine Wheel for the 2017 Winter Solstice gathering. Durga Ma, a guru of the Kundalini Shaktiput Yoga tradition was brought to Natures Gate to make her final life transition, her Mahasamhad. which occurred on Summer Solstice of 2018. A ceremonial burial site was dedicated in a clearing in the woods where there will be a small temple housing some of her ashes. This past Fall of 2019, we built a wigwam and held a purification lodge for a small group of women. Part of that ceremonial work consecrated the sacred ground for a future Stupa (a Tibetan structure) which will be dedicated to The Mother for All Beings.
A pivotal moment occurred in 2017 when Elandara received the instructions from Spirit to “give the land back to itself, create budgets and begin to put into motion the necessary details for protecting the property at Natures Gate". Shortly after receiving that message, Elandara began receiving visionary downloads for the renovations and new construction of buildings. With the help of a preliminary Board of Directors, we put together a Mission Statement and Elandara began to record the Master Plan for the capitol improvements being shown to her.
The 5 Year Master Plan is now complete and defines the overall scope of construction work with some budget estimates. What is being called to create here is a HUGE endeavor. Every step of the way has been guided from the Spiritual Realms and It is now time to open the door and invite you in as an investor in this dream.
This fund raiser is our Next Big Step and we need your help to get started! We hope to reach our goal within 2 months so the non profit organization can be created.
Thank you from the bottom not my heart for your contribution, and investing in us, Elandara
