SoulFire Sanctuary is the homebase for Mz. imani. The land is a ceremonial dance grounds that was b’eARThed and enacted through the vision of Beautiful Painted Arrow (Joseph Rael) and the good WErks of Zoe Bryant, her father Baxton Bryant, the Council and Community surrounding the co-creation of the 18th Sound / Peace Chamber.
The Chamber was held by the Educational 501c3 called the Earth Center. Prior to the Earth Center, the land was owned by the Southern Churchman Association, and Rev. Bryant was chosen, by the Association, to purchase the 400 acres of this Cove, in Swannanoa.
In August of 2014, i purchased the Chamber and surrounding 29.5 acres, from Zoe Bryant, daughter of Baxton and Beatrice Bryant. While the Chamber continues to be in renovation, it is time to open the doors a wee bit, and welcome you to witness the dance of the past 5 years:
As Caretaker of this land, i choose to hold specific protocols, around parking and anticipated ways of relating. We encourage carpooling or sharing an Uber. We have parking close by & provide shuttles to the chamber. Thank you for WErking together and going with the flow, my flow, of this newly re-emerging gem. thank you for collaborating to minimize our impact on my neighbors and to orient you to the land. if you have my cell, you can text me.
Consider giving yourself time to play, dance, walk, speak and celebrate with us. Whether for a few hours, a day, or the week of Summer Solstice, 2018.
Our purpose is to awaken our personal and collective potential that resides on this hill and within the prayers for our children, our hOMe and our humanity, thru music, art and dance.
New WErld Culture and Ancient Wisdom come together in prayer, music and celebration here. Within the Chamber, our body, mind spirit are saturated in sound and beauty. On the land, and in the Chamber, we offer witness to this complex, yet simple, dance of life. We are empowering our dreams into reality. We are offering our gifts, to help bring peace to ourselves and to the planet, by being kind and caring, careful and considerate, as we cultivate and define our ceremonial roles and response-abilities to present ourselves as emissaries for humanity.
….may any and all beneficial energy raised by these efforts, be offered with love and trust, to to the wellness of the planet, our people, our children, and the 7 generations….
