"Going Green" Initiative at the Monastery

Updated: Jun 6

Dear Friends, It is time for another update, along with an invitation. Our Living Miracles Metaphysical Center was sold last year, and the Monastery is now our U.S ministry base. This year the Monastery is going through some major renovations and changes. We are guided to invest resources into a longer term “green/off the grid” direction at the monastery. Already we have had a roof replaced, and we have orders in for a company to come and replace most of the windows and doors in all of the main buildings, in support of heat retention during the cooler months, and air-flow during the warmer times. A beautiful team is coming together here at the Monastery, as part of a 'Going green' focus. Initial projects, and special functions are coming clear, equipment and supplies are on their way! Jason is arriving this week from Mexico for at least three months, as a 'project manager'. Soren will be here in the coming month, bringing his passion for wind-power, solar, and innovative building projects. We have a beautiful Monastery team here, and friends are beginning to arrive at the beginning of June, and throughout the coming months, bringing their hearts, skills, and desire to join in and serve.

This summer there is a heart-wide-open invitation to those who would love to come and be part of it all. As always, it is an invitation to dive into the living experience of being joined in a shared Purpose, to be in our Spirit-Given functions, and to experience the miracles that result from healing, praying, and following the Holy Spirit's Guidance together.

If this attracts and you have experience, skills and a big heart, then please do not consider finances an obstacle! We are in a position to offer scholarships as needed, for those Called to come and dive in for a collaborative 1-3 month stay June - September.

Although it will be a big swirl of “many busy doings”, the focus, as always, awakening, devotional service, and mind training. As we are “done through” by the Spirit, all sense of separation is washed away. There are varied projects and areas in which to collaborate and serve, including specialized building, carpentry, plumbing and ‘green’ projects, as well as staining and painting and grounds projects, and the essential cooking and cleaning areas. Going Green projects include:

  • A new windmill to provide electricity with new lithium batteries

  • Passive Solar Projects for south facing walls, roofs, and windows.

  • Hybrid Solar Projects for generating electricity, hot water, and heating interior spaces (with the option for being connected or not connected to the power grid)

  • New water retention or storage solutions

  • A greenhouse / atrium area

  • A new energy efficient HVAC system to run off the free electricity

  • Fireplace/Chimney fix/Ceiling Fans

If green is not your speciality, but you are passionate, we also have other projects.

  • Painting of existing decks

  • Bathroom installation

  • Garage building

  • Carpentry & stone work

  • Trimming and removal of tree branches

  • Rock paths

  • Cleaning

  • Cooking

  • General Monastery maintenance support

David will also be visiting for some intimate sessions with the crew to help keep the Purpose out front because these collaborative projects are always about healing. You can listen to David sharing about new directions on this Spreaker talk here.

If you feel the spark in your heart to join in, send an email to me - letting us know of your experience, and which of the above projects you are inspired by. We have an application process, and a team in support of the logistics.

We look forward to hearing from you, With Love, Kirsten and the Monastery Team ❤️
