MOTHER EARTH ECO-CENTER & TEMPLE
FOUNDERS & CREATION
The Land on which the Center is built, was once home to the Stillaguamish Peoples, who lived here. There were Long Houses here; it was a place of women healers, in addition to the seasonal salmon runs.
A ceremony was held when the Land was purchased, and the Elder of this Land, with a gathering of persons from this Land.
On-going ceremony has enabled a positive shift toward respect of the Land, since the creation of the Mother Earth Eco-Center approximately 15 years ago.
ABOUT THE MOTHER ECO-CENTER
The ceremonial eco-shamanic Lodge is located in North West Washington State, on the Puget Sound waters, by the San Juan Islands. It is only minutes from wild beaches, and mature Cedar-Fir forests --where the Trainings are also held.
The Mother Earth Eco-Center is in Service to our Mother Earth, and local landscapes that include the northwest Cedar-Fir forests, and Puget Sound Waters and Islands.
The ceremonial eco-shamanic lodge has corresponding Forests.
The Mother Earth Eco-Center is connected with corresponding, privately-owned mature cedar-fir forests, with permission to walk the Lands and engage in Practice with Nature -- at an 80-acre mature, private Cedar-Fir Forest with lush understory and under dense canopies, on Camano Island, only minutes away.
The privately-owned forests are where the 7Phases® Trainings are also experienced.
The Mother Earth Eco-Center in entirety, is a 8500 square-foot blue building, that includes the 3000 square-foot ceremonial eco-shamanic lodge, and adjoining residential units -- that are home to long-term residents, who also form the intentional community.
