In western industrialized culture we have been taught to deny/avoid grief rather than to allow its natural expression and resolution. We have been taught to medicate any and all uncomfortable emotions (including grief) with consumption of substances (some legal, some illegal) and by purchasing and accumulating. This does not bring peace or healing and it is not sustainable. I would like to offer Grief Cafes, Grief Retreats, and Grief Workshops at Sacred Lands, to help people learn how to find inner peace after loss so that they do not feel a compulsion to medicate with consumption.

Eric and Doris Anderson are passing forward the priceless legacy of Eric's parents who preserved the land for themselves, shared it with others, then bequeathed it to Eric who now is lovingly acting as its steward. You might say SLPEC is a miraculous gift to the community without overstating the reality of it.
