Review for Tierra Sagrada The Sacred Earth Foundation, Florissant, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It is with great honor, respect and gratitude that I wish to acknowledge and support the work of The Sacred Earth Foundation. My name is Art Cisneros and my mother's name is Beatrice Robles Cisneros, I belong to my mother's clan of Chumash People. I am a firekeeper for my community. I was introduced to Pati Turner, the Founder of The Sacred Earth Foundation, through a mutual friend at the time in 2007 when she was working with Don Alejandro, a 13th generation Quique Mayan Priest, and supporting the "Shift of the Ages" a movie about his message to the world. Soon after, she called to ask my help with the protocal with the local Chumash community. The event and presentation truly helped to heal and transform everyone there, and I became aware of and understood, the significance of the work that Pati has humbly taken on at great expence to herself, both energetically and financially. In July of 2007 I asked Pati to help me host Angaangaq, an Inuit Shaman from Greenland to the Santa Barbara area. Through her work she helped our community to heal and transform at three events with Angaangaq. Hundreds of people have been helped and inspired to do their own work to fulfill their purpose for being here in service to others. I continue to be moved by the passion Pati shares with everyone about her love for the Mother Earth and all who reside here. Through her work bringing the wisdom of the elders from around the globe, she is helping to bring balance and understanding to our world by teaching us how to love each other unconditionally. Pati has helped me personally with her healing abilities and inspired me to new to new awareness through her unconditional love. This is the moment that we can all help The Sacred Earth Foundation to continue with this important work. I am honored to now be a member of the Board of Directors since March of 2009. I ask that you take responsibility as a caretaker of Mother Earth and share your abundance so this transformative work can continue. Thank you for being an important chapter to bringing balance and peace back to our planet. Meta Tantay (Walk in Peace)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping the community to transform and to come together in support of each other and the planet.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the work required to create the space and the logistics involved in hosting such extraordinary individuals to the Santa Barbara area. The sheer immensity of a mission to transform the planet is overwhelming.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the joy that people express during and following their experience of ceremony and wisdom that is brought by the global elders whom we host.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone who has volunteered with time, service and funds have been warm, compassionate and inspired to fulfill the mission of Tierra Sagrada, The Sacred Earth Foundation.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create a sustainable community that provides space for a spiritual healing center offering outreach across the globe. Bringing local enrichment and becoming a model for the world. This would be a center that brings wisdom to our knowledge.

Ways to make it better...

More funds were available so scholarships could be offered to those who cannot afford to attend the intensive teachings and workshops.If the abundance of this foundation were increased, indigenous cultures and Western Society would benefit immensely.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Creating a sustainable financial base. The vision of The Sacred Earth Foundation is so imperative at this time in the history of mankind that funds are needed to bring these teachings to the global community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Indigenous communities and all of the indigenous prophesies support the need to open the hearts of all of mankind to embrace each other and support each other through all difficulties that currently threaten our very existence.
