Healing Earth Refuge aims to develop safe, healthy, healing private and public spaces, housing, and communities for all Earth's inhabitants, halting social toxicity and environmental pollution, creating and altering infrastructure, networks, and support systems as needed, and insuring systems and institutions are secondary to these goals.
Healing Earth Refuge works for both for for individuals with heightened sensitivities and the public at large. Support networks, databanks, shared information, fundraising, advocacy, publicity, legislation support, and other work by members serves to improve & effect change on issues such as:
Development of safe spaces & safer, effective healing therapies (see "Healing Refuge").
Increasing pollution & chemical, allergen, electromagnetic, or other sensitivities and environmental illness.
Access to safe shelter, clean water, non-GMO food, clean air, and natural beauty.
Safe working conditions, decent jobs, and work-life balance.
Massachusetts Databank to Prove EHS Needs & Press Advocacy: Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is not yet officially recognized in the USA or Massachusetts. We are collecting a databank of Massachusetts individuals with electromagnetic sensitivity. Please supply information as described at the following link: http://www.meetup.com/HEALove/pages/Electromagnetic_Sensitivity_%28ES_or_EHS%29_Databank/
Safe Spaces for EHS, Multiple Chemical, other EI Needs: Please contact if you know of safe spaces, whether for a land trust community, public space, or business. We seek public and private spaces for individuals with environmental illness (EI), and advocate for accessibility, seeking safest living spaces and supportive legislation. Additionally, we seek information on possible safe spaces in existence, as well as businesses and other organizations willing to show support by offering safe spaces. Our petition, also above, will be given to businesses and other organizations. Please sign.
We wish to support green, sustainable land trust communities & healing centers designed for the health of the earth, its people, and for safety from environmental hazards. For a healing refuge, we seek organizations & individuals, including herbal, homeopathic, naturopathic, meridian-based, surgical, to create an integrative healing & research center appropriate for environmental illnesses. Please contact the organizer if this applies to you.
Refuge Status: Presently we have received some offers of donations for significant carpentry assistance and, for land trusts in New England, offers of help with legal or contractual arrangements to establish land trusts. We would need to provide materials in order for the carpenters to build--they are willing to make at least one building in a location. We can establish non-profit status for the refuges, but need concrete information on numbers of EI individuals requiring housing or healing services--the EHS databank helps, but is not a complete method.
Refuge Application: http://www.meetup.com/HEALove/pages/Application_for_Healing_Earth_Refuge/
Healing or Housing Refuge for Whom & What? Refuge would be open to everyone, with and without sensitivities, sharing the goals of Healing Earth Refuge to protect the Earth and its inhabitants, by encouraging healing and safety, and access to clean water, clean air, good food, respectful medical care, natural beauty, and supportive community.
Sponsorship, Fundraising & Other Support: Please make contact if willing to assist with fundraising or to make a donation of land, services, or money.
Refuge Restrictions & Conditions: Refuges created inclusive of environmentally harmed individuals would necessarily have a number of restrictions in place regarding chemicals and electromagnetic signals or allergens, based on the healing needs of the community.
Based on needs, a number of homes may be seriously "off-grid," lacking access to traditional toxic chemicals, with access to electricity on the periphery. In return for smaller living spaces, the communal centers, open space, and nearby "undeveloped" land can coexist and contribute to healing the community and ecosystems. Additionally, offices and public meeting space may be included to provide support and serve as a locus for continuing advocacy. In some cases, land and/or homes may fall under ownership of the nonprofit, depending upon arrangements.

Member Pages: Currently pages are constantly shifting, with member pages providing additional information meant to be of help, whether technical information, member organizing, collated healing information, alternative education, networking, or contacts for consultants. Please share useful information to be added. Pages and files can be accessed above on the title bar, although in order to view all accessible pages the Table of Contents must be selected by scrolling down to the bottom.
Caveat: Apologies as this website is never quite caught up to the moment, and many of the pages are focused on electromagnetic forces, reflecting personal needs.
Note from Organizer: Someone met with me in 2014 about EI housing needs, stole my idea for an EI housing community, and then began soliciting donations with the pronoun "we" as if I, Kirstin, was included and seeking developers along with requesting folks provide information & investment to her. I did not wish to work with her, nor seek donations. I did not get along with her nor wish to see her again, most especially as she attempted to take control of the project--seemed to me oppositional and threatening. I had concerns regarding her honesty and mental health, because her stories seemed a bit crazy--she may be a victim despite her ongoing Iphone usage, but it was hard to believe her statements that the cashiers at a coop in the Hilltowns, a place she'd never visited, were intentionally rude as part of a master plan against her, or that the trucks in front of my car a few minutes were intentionally slowing down her progress also as part of a master plan. It may be that she has changed or I have misunderstood, but I'm only interested in working with people who seem dependable and more interested in success than soliciting.
