Madre Grande, part 1

shelves

It’s been two weeks now and I’m still not sure how to talk about the AMO trip to Madre Grande in Dulzura, CA. For those of you who haven’t followed our work, Amoration team members have been heading down to MG since 2004 for meditation retreats and art/music gatherings at this theosophical monastery near the Mexican border. In the fires that ravaged Southern California this fall most of Dulzura was burnt including half of the land that Madre Grande owns high atop a rocky mountain.

We will return again….soon. We were able to rebuild little bits and help support a vital community hard-hit by disaster. You can do this too….every little bit helps! Whether fire, flood or other damage we all need someone to reach out and help us out at some point in our lives. Some of the AMO supporters already donated hoses and shower heads to rebuild the lost water systems!

Photos and more details will be posted soon….for now visit http://www.madregrande.org/fire to see more of this land and the many buildings and residences the monks lost at MG.

This photo is one of many taken by Mario and Tracey, two monks living on the property and now working to rebuild and remove the burnt remains.  They are one family among many, thousands who lost homes and lives.  In upcoming blogs we’ll tell you more about Burners without Borders, the Bjurts, Madre Grande and the AMO team that helped them.  We’ll even tell you more about the amazing Manzanita and how you can own a piece of Madre Grande to carry this magical place with you always.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, be thankful.  It goes up very quickly when the time comes.
