‘Elemental Guardians’ seek to protect and nourish kinship with Creator’s Creation through the Elementals, the 4 traditional Elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit which imbues all of them with Sacredness.
By honouring Creation, including ourselves, we glorify Creator and embrace the sacred powers of all inter-related beings, and the body-soul-mind-spirit exchange that creates harmony, not dissonance. This is our fundamental responsibility and birth right, and our calling as teachers, students and stewards.
As Elemental Guardians, through a co-mentoring of children, youth and adults that bring their unique gifts to bear, we invite our creative, innate abilities to fruition in order to protect, nourish and heal the Earth, and each other through education, land tending and rehabilitation. This ever-deepening integration of our lives in wild play and work with Creation harkens back to our original natures as Creator intended.
We have chosen this land, Shire by the Sea, to make our stand, creating a Co-operative that will reach out for community building, land stewardship, education, celebration, work and funding in honour of these core values and our necessary evolution towards greater harmony with the Earth, Heavens and Elementals. Creator bestowed the Gift of Creation, and we work to be in alignment with both Creator and Creation as Earthlings in this corner of Cascadia, in the ancestral home of the T’Souke Nation, at Shire by the Sea.
If this message speaks to you, consider becoming a patron of the Elemental Guardians. Join us for our events, workshops, and classes, or peruse this sprouting website to connect with the budding fellowships on this honoured land. Every financial contribution helps in our first major milestone of saving our Shire by the Sea. A Crowd-funding campaign will commence soon.
There will be call outs for continued assistance and contributions and we will publish ongoing newsletters and updates as we progress through our multi-pronged goals.
