Postponed--Earth Healers Gathering Oct. 1, Gossamer Wood

Given that rain is forecast for Saturday October 1 we have canceled our Earth Healers Gathering at Gossamer Wood in Canandaigua, NY.

We are considering rescheduling for Saturday, October 15, or October 29.

Chapel House Reopens

Chapel House on the Colgate Campus in Hamilton NY has reopened after completing summer renovations. It is a lovely spiritual sanctuary and retreat center with all sorts of amenities such as numerous sacred texts, a music room and a very sweet chapel. At $40 a night, including three meals a day it is a steal.

I first wrote up Chapel House in my listing of sacred sites years ago. It rests on a Field of Consciousness, has a very positive vibe and a vortex. It will be included on my upcoming book, Sacred Sites in North Star Country, Places in Greater NYS that Changed the World.

If you are looking for a place to chill out, spend some time reflecting and meditating then Chapel House is a great place to go; particularly given its only $40 a night including 3 meals.

Onondaga Lake Peacemaker's Sanctuary Update--A Vortex has Re-formed

The meditating we have been doing weekly at the Peacemaker's Sanctuary is having an effect. One of the two vortex rings near the new bench has blossomed into a vortex. Excellent!!!!!!

Meditating in a vortex increases the amount of Mother Earth's essences you attract during an activity; in this case Consciousness, Christ Consciousness--nourishing your soul with love, compassion, altruism... . Meditating in one is strongly encouraged. Doing so over a prolonged period of time will hasten your spiritual transformation.

I marked the vortex with two stones. 

The location of the vortex, it previously was a vortex ring, a little away from our prayer and meditation area tells us several things:

  1. Someone else long before us prayed/meditated/performed ceremony in the area.
  2. The holy area probably extends much farther towards the mouth of the Seneca River. Meaning the area of the Peacemaker's Sanctuary was originally much larger.
  3. This truly is a very, very holy area and has been so for a very, very long  time.
  4. I expect to find more holy areas that could easily blossom into vortex rings and ultimately vortices, on either side of the bench some distance aways.

In the picture below the folding chair marks the location of the vortex. With the lake to your back it is to the right and a little behind the bench.

During last Wednesday's meditation two swans were playing in front of us. They were briefly joined by a loon.

Earth Healers Gathering, Oct 1, Gossamer Wood, Canandaigua NY

Postponed due to rain.

Goal: We are looking to enhance the grounds, put in some new trails and add to the powerful love that already exists at Gossamer Wood Healing Retreat Center  In the process you will learn how to heal Mother Earth, better connect with Her and raise your consciousness and the vibe at Gossamer.

Activities: Will include trail work (maintenance, making new trails…), spiritually cleaning the sacred space,  constructing stone structures (circles, prayer stones…) meditating on prayer stones/stone circles. To perform certain tasks you will be working with L-rods (dowsing rods); instruction will be provided. Although it is not necessary to bring dowsing rods it is strongly encouraged. Please do not ask others to use their L-rods because it is like asking to use their toothbrush.

Learn, Experience, Connect, Teach: We are looking to teach you about Mother Earth and about healing and enhancing Her. We will be doing this through instruction and experientially. This will Better help you connect with Her. We want to teach you so that you can do Earth Healing yourself and teach others. We will be following small schoolroom approach where the sixth graders teach the third graders, who teach the first graders.

About Gossamer: GOSSAMER WOOD RETREAT HEALING CENTER is the home of healer (The Body Talk System and REIKI MASTER) Rev. Bill Dewey. Over the last few decades a variety of educational programs—Reiki Classes, A Course in Miracles, The Tree Whisperer, meditations, gongs, Seminars and Workshops by Doctors, etc. have taken place there.

The 12 acres of GOSSAMER WOOD sits on powerful aspects of Mother Earth, one of which I call Fields of Consciousness. This is where Spirit Lines (Ley Lines) originate from carrying Christ Consciousness to distant corners of the world; so it is important to rev up GOSSAMER WOOD so that Spirit Lines can better do their job. It is included as one of the sacred sites in my listing of sacredsites.

A recent survey of GOSSAMER WOOD posted on this blog revealed some incredible finds just north of the existing trail system--vortices, Spirit Keeper Site, Manitou stones, Earthen mound... We will be working to link those sacred places and enhance them. 

Because Bill’s longer term plans are to create a land trust for the grounds so that they will remain a sanctuary for all to visit; we will be also begin putting in a new trail system. It will begin north of the house in the area of a future parking area for visiting pilgrims. Bill would at some point like to sell the house, but have the grounds be preserved as a sanctuary.

If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation to help pay for the construction of a new parking area, or with legal expenses for establishing a land trust, please contact Bill or myself—or bring your check book. I will give you a formal receipt.

What you should bring: Work gloves, boots are preferred (but not necessary) a seat cushion, or portable chair to sit on when meditating, a backpack, or bag to hold your stuff, several bottles of water (spiritual exercises and powerful sacred sites will increase your need for water), LUNCHEON FOOD and snacks. If interested in pizza for dinner some money to contribute—or bring your own dinner.
Please bring a pair of L-rods (dowsing rods), some basic instruction will be provided.

Again please make sure to bring some luncheon food to eat, particularly root vegetables to help ground you. GOSSAMER WOOD is a very powerful sacred site and can give you a spiritual high, bliss you out; particularly since you will be meditating and learning to better connect with your Mother.

We Need Rocks and Flat Stones: If you have any flat stones, or rocks big enough (fist size, or larger) to construct a 10-20 foot in diameter stone circle. The more the merrier. If you know of any places to get flat stones 12” to 18” in diameter please post below in the comments section.

Challenging: We will not ask anyone to do really hard work. Trail maintenance consists of raking, pruning and moving old dead tree branches to mark the trails. The greater challenge will be the big dose of Mother Earth you will be experiencing. The bulk of your time will be spent meditating and clearing up sacred space.

Parking: On the day of make sure to park snug next to other cars leaving plenty of room for others. If you not plan on staying all day, park towards the back. Please do park behind other cars. Bill can take 15-20 cars if people park considerately.

Rain Date: Check this Blog post before you come. I will post by 7 AM on Oct 1, if we are pushing our gathering back a day.

Updates: This blog will be updated with news.

Questions, Concerns: Post your questions, concerns on the comment section below. That way information will be better shared.

Ride Sharing: If you are interested in sharing a ride and are coming from Syracuse, Buffalo… please post your contact information and location in the comment section below. If someone is interested they will reply.

Keeper: Basically we will be doing Keeper’s Work. A Keeper is one that watches over and takes care of, physically and spiritually, a sacred site. We are also looking for people to make a commitment and become one of the Keepers for Gossamer as it transitions. Speak to me on Oct. 1 if you are interested in becoming a Keeper for GOSSAMER WOOD.

NEW, Coming a Long Distance. Please post your contact information in the comment section below if you are not on Bill's or my Listserve, or are driving a long distance.

A tentative schedule of activities will be posted on this blog at least one week before our Gathering on Oct. 1. We will begin by meeting in the Bliss Learning Center for a talk on Fields of Consciousness and their global network of Spirit Lines, and the basics of clearing space and creating stone structures, and of course connecting with our Mother (Earth.)

Again post all questions and concerns in the comments section below and make sure to check periodically for updates.

This promises to be an incredible uplifting and rewarding day for us and our Mother.

Gossamer Wood Retreat and Healing Center Update

Yesterday I went by and visited Gossamer Wood Retreat and Healing Center on County Road 28 in Canandaigua, NY. I had not been at Gossamer in over a year. And while I gave a book talk there last year on Vortices and Spirals I have not led a group meditation, or taught a course, or helped people connect with Mother Earth there for 6,  or 7 years. Further I have not done an extensive survey and re-exploration of the grounds in almost 10 years. Since then I have learned much more about Mother Earth, Her Fields of Consciousness (FOC) and stone structures. What I found was pretty incredible. I also had a chance to spend few hours chatting with owner/operator Bill Dewey.

As to my findings. Gossamer is all that I noted in my first review of it 10 years ago and lots more, and I mean lots more. I found several more FOC (Fields of Consciousness) that are much more potent, a Spirit Keepers site and other Native American stone structures, several vortices and more....

Let me begin by saying that the vibe at Gossamer runs from very positive to extremely positive, with numerous vortices and hair raising locations within it. A testament to how sacred Gossamer is and the work that has been done to uplift it. Work which will continue,  as I will discuss towards the end of this post.

Vortices Lets begin with the vortices. Several vortices have formed on the property in response to the prayers/meditations/ceremonies/good thoughts that have taken place there. Vortices, as I explained in Vortices and Spirals form in response to human intention; they are co-creation with Mother Earth and humankind. They are powerfully uplifting and can be spiritually, and or physically transforming. If you ever have a chance to meditate in one, do so by all means--it can really elevate your consciousness and significantly help with your spiritual transformation.

Below is a picture of the welcome circle. My backup in one of the quadrangles marks where the vortex is.

Below is a picture of a group of stones on which a vortex has formed in the Tall Oaks section of Gossamer.

Another vortex has formed in the first of 3 circles behind the Bliss Learning Center. Each circle marks a area where 10 Fields of Consciousness (FOC) are stacked upon each other S10.

A New Area--I have never spent time exploring the north side of Gossamer, north of the north arm of the trail loop. Within it we found several additional FOC and numerous, what appear to be, ancient sacred sites. 

On the other side of a large ditch on the north side we found several more FOC, stone structures and more.

Spirit Keepers Site and vortex. Probably the most incredible find was an ancient Spirit Keepers site, a stone, with a vortex on top of it--at a minimum it is 4,000 years old.  Why do I believe that this is a Spirit Keeper's site?

First, the location of the stone shows knowledge of FOC. It is spot on the center of FOC, an S12 with 12 FOC stacked upon each other.

Secondly, the vortex is an indication that a lot of praying, meditating or ceremony has taken place upon it. Further, the area is an area that Bill has never touched foot on. So someone long ago spent lots of time on the stone

Below is a picture of the Spirit Keeper's site

An Earthen Mound on an Energy Formation-  The digging of a large ditch on the north side of Gossamer Wood meant a lot of dirt piled up around it. What is interesting of the earthen mound we found was its circular shape and that it was situated on an energy formation.

The picture below is of the earthen mound; it is  a little more than 3 feet high. Pepper (white dog) is on top and Jaeda Bear (black dog) at the base. 

Manitou Stones--We found several manitou stones, stones planted upright in the ground. Always difficult to say whether the stone was placed in the ground ,or somehow placed there by Mother Earth.

Several of the stones were at an angle, most likely because they had begun tilting over the years because of  soft clay/sod soil that is periodically flooded and looses support.

The picture below is of a Manitou Stone that marks the intersection of 4 Spirit Lines (Ley lines.)
