Eagle & Condor Elders Cabin HomerAK

BACKGROUND: The Whirling Rainbow Foundation is an international non-profit organization promoting unity, peace and earth sustainability through culture, healing and living arts programs. The 7ft crystal in-laid Grandmother Drum has been the very heartbeat of the foundation's mission touring across a million miles touching a million people in 20 countries over the past 20 years working with mainstream and indigenous communities on fostering sustainability, community wellness, spirituality, peace and unity. 

The Whirling Rainbow Foundation recently established The Whirling Rainbow Center at the highest building in Homer, Alaska at 1,550 ft as the new Global Peace Sanctuary and Sustainable Community.

Starting in 2017, we hosted our  indigenous Elders and Wisdomkeepers from Mexico to share cultural ceremony, ancient wellness and sustainability practices. Since our center is only 1500 sq feet, we are needing a separate cabin to house teachers when then come. 

WHATS THE FUNDING FOR?
This Go FUND Me  is for the purchase, move and set up of a 11 x 13 Log Cabin ( currently located 80 miles from the center) as the "Eagle and Condor" Cabin to house indigenous Elders, teachers and interns on the  land and establish the cabin as fully sustainable energy model for Log Cabins in the Far North of Alaska! The Eagle and Condor Prophecy is an 2000 year old prophecy which speaks to uniting the peoples of North America ( Eagle) with those of South America
(Condor). When the Eagle of the North flies with the Condor of the South, it is said that the Spirit of the land and humanity will re-awaken. This cabin will allow housing for those sharing traditional knowledge and wisdom practices than can restore our planet to its original dream of wholeness for all.

TIMELINE: MAY - SEPTEMBER  2018
The cabin has to be moved from its present location by May 31, 2018. Before we can move it, we need the funds to put in foundation posts, foundation flooring, insulation and deck. Then the fun begins when we move the cabin on a trailer and truck 80 miles to Homer! From there we will begin the interior finishes and sustainable energy systems.

As a model to the world of whats possible, we feel if it can be done at 1500 feet on Lookout Mt in Homer, Alaska, it can be done anywhere in the world!
