A sanctuary is now being birthed and created in some very pure and pristine land in the Scottish Highlands. The land is nestled at the base of a mountain, surrounded by hundreds of acres of forest on the edge of a fresh water loch, and is only accessible by boat or a day’s walk. It is completely off-grid, powered by renewable energy sources (Anima's music is all created using energy from sun and water!), and has its own water supply coming from mountain springs.
Our work is based on the awareness that our modern society has become overtaken by a way of living that no longer honours the Earth and the needs of the Earth, and as a result she, along with humannity and the rest of life are suffering from contamination and pollution in many different ways. Our species has for the most part forgotten the orginal sacred principle of reciprocity – that for everything we take, we must give – and as a result we have brought upon ourselves a world out of balance.
As part of this vision, we are committed to help protect, and facilitate ways for people to reconnect with the ancient knowledge and sacred wisdom of our origins. This has been retained and guarded by certain indigenous cultures who have kept this knowledge pure and alive within their traditions. These wisdom keepers are the ones that have held and understand what living in balance and sacred relationship truly means, and are the ones who know how to apply the orginal instructions to restore life from the damage that’s been done. Our planet is on the brink of destruction and as foreseen by our Elders, the time has come for sacred knowledge to be restored and brought back to the people, so that we may remember who we are, and our roles and responsibilities as caretakers of our world.
We have a number of projects and work with the land in process and are laying the foundations for bigger roots and branches to grow. Projects that are currently in process and/or planning are:
Earth Based Wisdom Teachings, Experiential Immersion Programs; Co-Creating in Loving Harmony with our Living Mother Earth; Biodynamic Gardening and Spiritual Permaculture; Forest Gardening; Native regeneration of the surrounding forest; Building a Ceremonial Lodge and Ceremonial Grounds.
If you feel inspired by this work and feel a call to contribute or be involved in some way, at certain times in the year we open the space for people to participate in the projects, group circles and for the work that’s required on the land. We are also looking for some financial contributions to help with some of the bigger start-up costs, any amount is helpful.
