Refounded in the Fall of 2013
Please sign (anonymously possible) and share the following petition! It takes so much money to get publicity & change, but this is free if you simply sign and then share locally yourself for maximum effectiveness: www.thepetitionsite.com/495/323/027/reduce-disabling-wireless-emfs and see petitions page. I will be sharing this petition as well.
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.
Support networks, databanks, shared information, fundraising, advocacy, publicity, and other work by members serves to improve & effect change on issues such as:
A major effort, to meet need and as exemplary models, is creation of green, sustainable land trust communities designed for the health of the earth, its people, and for safety from environmental hazards, such as electromagnetic radiation, GMOs, energy waste, and unregulated products/chemicals, as well as from intrusions upon health and human rights by individuals seeking to profit from the vulnerability or weaknesses of others.
Toxic systems continue wreaking havoc on the environment and all its inhabitants, and so Healing Earth Refuge seeks to create attractive alternatives and halt toxicity, protecting the weakest and most vulnerable with safe harbor.
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.
Safe Spaces for Electromagnetic, Multiple Chemical, EI Needs: Please contact if you know of a safe space. We have just started the process of finding public and private spaces for individuals with EHS or MCS, and advocating for accessibility, focusing upon Massachusetts. 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.
Databank to Prove EHS Needs & Press Advocacy: While multiple chemical sensitivity and allergies are medically recognized, electromagnetic sensitivity is not yet recognized in the USA. We seek proof of need, and are collecting a databank, presently focused on Massachusetts although members in surrounding states may be included in separate catalogues. Names will be kept anonymous and private from the public, but the databank will be utilized to press advocacy. We need names, addresses, telephone numbers, symptoms, and needs. These can be sent to the organizer Kirstin by private message.
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. Currently, arrangements are in process for nonprofit status for donations, but this takes time.
Refuge Status & Refuge Databank: Presently we have received some offers of donations for carpentry assistance and also for assistance in legal or contractual arrangements in New England. We lack the funds for purchasing suitable land, and although we may have at least one member willing to provide a significant chunk of funds, adequate funds are lacking and must still be sought.
We have a few members interested in refuge, including at least one member interested in gardening and permaculture as a potential business for herself, perhaps to the benefit of the community. If you are interested in this refuge development, please contact organizer Kirstin, providing contact information, finances & type (cash, mortgage, other), needs, and how you might be able to help develop the community or move this process forward, if possible.
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.
Special Cases within Refuge: Individuals with any serious debilitating disease may be considered on a case-by-case basis depending on the ability of the community to process the illness emotionally as well as provide a sympathetic environment. While the community may not possess medical expertise or abilities and thus be able to provide this support, seriously ill indivuals may be accepted to enable them some community and emotional respite. Of note, according to the Bioiniative 2012, continuing exposure to artificial EMFs statistically showed children with leukemia would not recover, in contrast to children removed from continuing high exposure. As such, it seems there is a duty to provide healing spaces free of EMFs.
Removal from this group would be based on interfering with the goals and aspirations of this group, including disrespectful behaviors, harassment, or misuse of group for sales. Joining this group means you accept the terms that you are responsible for yourself and your dependents, so that this group and I are free from any liability. Membership can be revoked at any time for any reason, and misbehavior will be reported to Meetup.com.
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, stole my idea for a healing community, and then began soliciting donations and requesting folks provide information, lands, investment to her as well as a databank of needy folks. I did not get along with her, most especially as she attempted to take control of this project while making it clear it would exclude me and involve her control. Further, I had a number of concerns regarding her honesty and mental health, because her stories seemed manipulative and at odds with reality. It may be a misunderstanding, but please be careful of how you proceed with creating change, and make sure you get to know people before making serious commitments.
