What we're about
Earth Rising Sanctuary gatherings are for people who desire to share/learn techniques in the self healing arts for the individual and the earth, including traditional healing techniques, metaphysical, and green ways of living on the earth. ERS gatherings are for people who desire to share/learn techniques in the self healing arts for the individual and the earth, including traditional healing techniques, metaphysical, and green ways of living on the earth. They are also for family to come together in prayer, heart-song, Spirit music, dance and play. The sanctuary is also a place for up to 16 people (including children) to live and grow in their spiritual path, sharing healing, music, other artistic expressions, gardening, and other green ways of living. We are looking for people who desire to walk with a light footprint on this planet using as little fossil fuels as possible and utilizing the power of the sun and other alternative energy. The sanctuary is looking for light-workers to live at the sanctuary to manifest an abundance of love and light into this planet. We are looking for people who understand community, and working and playing together, for a combined enrichment of our lives in our own rhythm and time. One of our projects is growing organic non-gmo foods. The sanctuary encourages a vegan, vegetarian or mostly vegetarian with occasional ethically raised or wild meat diet. The sanctuary encourages a respect, reverence, and communication with all life. All spiritual views and cultures are welcome on our land, as long as you respect others ways, and don't push your beliefs onto others. Spiritual speakers, artists, musicians, dancers, gardeners, handymen (especially if into alternative energy), and children are welcome. Especially welcome are happy vibes helping to bring light down into the planet. Earth Rising Sanctuary hosts three Healing Gathering's per year (May, June, and August) plus a Midwinter Circle and Celebration, March Vision Council and Seed Exchange; an end of Summer Music Jam Party; Thanks Giving Prayer Circle; Winter Solstice Prayer/Vision Circle; New Years Eve Party; and weekly Music Jams. For all gatherings- community kitchen open to potluck offering and sharing. Contact for any details for upcoming gatherings, and if you would like to arrange your own group or private retreat/seminar/gathering.
