Kimbers, in the video, is one of the beautiful beings who means so much to us at Spirit Hollow. She knows the power of this land and the mission of this place! We are so grateful for her, and for YOU!
Spirit Hollow will be 20 years old in 2020! The numbers have aligned here for our 20/20 Perfect Vision for the next 20 years at this sacred place.
We are launching our biggest fundraiser yet--to get a new, bigger yurt.
Having a bigger yurt will open up many possibilities for SH, including more space for bigger groups (50% more floor space than we currently have in our 24' yurt), the return of yoga retreats, the addition of dance-based and music events, and the ability to accommodate more outside presenters.
For those of you who have known Spirit Hollow for many years, you'll recall that when we were in our early days, we had a 30' yurt, which was our primary workshop space. That yurt left with Ananda (formerly Emery) Forest, when he and I decided to part ways. It is living with him and his wife in Brattleboro, and in it they host their own events.
We have felt the loss of that space since it left in 2011, and while we have the 24' yurt for events, it just limits what we can offer because of its size.
A 30' yurt will allow us to bring in more people, more programs, more revenue to allow us to continue to touch more souls and help them to transform their consciousness.
How does a bigger yurt benefit you?
When you come to Spirit Hollow, you'll have more space to move, to journey, to dance, to be in luxurious comfort. You'll be able to stay in the Brook Yurt and not have to move your sleeping gear aside in the morning for a workshop.A bigger yurt will also mean we will have two workshop spaces, and if YOU are cooking up some offering for which you need a space, you could potentially use that new yurt for your own retreat or workshop!
What does Spirit Hollow do to help people shift their lives, and their consciousness? This is what Cheri LaMere, a longtime SH friend says:
I was forced to change. I am not who I was and never will be. I attended retreats and classes, so how can anyone touch Spirit Hollow and not change? I love new me...... my new ways, my new thoughts and my new normal.
PACIFIC YURTS (an amazing company who makes the best yurts on the market)is running a sale between now and the beginning of January, so our goal is to raise at least 2/3 of the needed funds ($20,000) by December 31 to save up to $1200 on the yurt. (www.yurts.com)
Please consider donating to our project. If 200 people donate $150, we'll make our goal, just to show how realistic this goal is. Of course, any amount is so welcomed, as are you, here at this sacred place.
With great love and gratitute,
Tracey Forest, Co-Founding Director and the Spirit Hollow Board
