Meetingbrook Healing Respite Sails

$40 of $19,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 21 days
Meetingbrook Hermitage, boat and barn, is a place of conversation, meditation, quiet, hospitality, and service. Saskia has taken people aboard her 26' sailboat for over 20 years to provide, without cost, times of peace and beauty. 

Since her own completion of chemo she wishes, gratefully recognizing the benefit, to provide healing respite sails to those whose vulnerability and health are front and center.

The goal is to complete the pledges already made toward purchase of a more stable and secure larger (35') sailboat. The boat would provide sailing opportunities for particular people so that healing, quiet reflection, and respite might take place. 

She will take out: 
-- people with cancer, their caregivers and families;
-- those in hospice, their caregivers and families;
-- nurses, cna's, volunteers -- those involved in caring service;
-- and, as well, collaborate with recovery groups and veterans to    
    participate in a community of caring attention for healing fellowship;
-- in addition, those interested in contemplative sails and  stretches of silence.

Come visit for a sail. The boat will be moored in Rockport Harbor, Midcoast Maine, when acquired and ready for service. As with all our events, every use of the boat would be free, open, and informal.
