We're Daniel and Patti EarthStewards, a vegetarian couple who have been long time Homesteaders and Preppers. We've lived a back-to-the-land food and energy self-reliant lifestyle since 1990, with a previous study of these lifestyles and preparations since the late 70's.
We seek cofounders for a collectively run vegetarian Eco village and a Prepper Haven we'd like to call a Vegetarian Sanctuary.
At Vegetarian Sanctuary our wish is to co-create with a unified voice and make enduring alliances. Our goals are to restore sustainable lifestyles, to live close to the land, and to teach the right use of our planets limited resources.
We realized years ago the importance of preparing for social, political, economic and environmental changes which are unfolding. Recently we felt it was time to organize a Prepper Haven on our farm located north of Spokane, WA.
The Hopi advice we tap into as a guide for this Haven can be read at: http://www.communityworks.info/hopi.htm
The Hopi Elders Speak
We Are the Ones We've Been Waiting For
We have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.
And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth. Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.
Especially significant to us are the questions the Hopi asked...
"What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where are you living? Where is your water?" Also..."Know your garden".
We at Vegetarian Sanctuary have been asking ourselves the same type of questions since the late 1970's. We're as prepared as any intentional community could be to positively respond to these questions.
Our intention with Vegetarian Sanctuary is to establish an embankment to grab hold of, where vegetarian Preppers of good will may gather together when the rivers of change are sweeping us all downstream. And like the Hopi advised, we're reaching out to see who would like to be there with us.
We're serious about THRIVING in this time of uncertainty and have planned for the dollar collapse, earth changes and civil unrest. If you, like us, are feeling that weird vibe and sense something is coming, but you cannot put your finger on it, then you have met the right people to talk to about this at Vegetarian Sanctuary. We are doers, not talkers, and we want to be joined by those of like mind.
Interested vegetarians in the above may communicate with and get to know others involved in a new Yahoo group we've created at http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GatheringOurTribe/info In this group we've uploaded hundreds of photos to show our members what is established at this Haven.
