We are fascinated by the energy of ‘living in the round;’ it seems to enhance and enliven feminine energy, shifting us away from a linear frame-of-mind, inviting in the circular, spiral ways of our DNA and life itself. We have several yurts here at Sacred Groves.
The Round House
The Round House was built for ceremony and community celebrations. The space is magical and inviting. It is currently the living room and kitchen used by the residents of Sacred Groves but occasionally we host gatherings in the space.
The Moonlodge is our women’s lodge and was the first yurt on the property. It is the place where some women’s ceremonies happen and where women do personal retreats. You can read more about it and see more photos here. This model of yurt can be purchased now from Ranier Yurts.
The Meadow is where many outdoor gatherings happen. There is space for drumming, dancing, bonfires, hanging out and playing around. It is entirely private, surrounded by woods, accessed by a foot-path that goes down the hill from the driveway.
The ‘Gaia-zebo’ is our most recent addition. It sits in the southeast corner of the meadow and provides shelter for rainy day gatherings
The photo below shows the northeast part of the meadow. We LOVE spending time outdoors there, circled by the sacred cedar trees, feeling nurtured and protected by the “standing tall people.”
