Mission Statement

To live CommUnion, free of culture and prejudice.

Community Description

“the time of the lone wolf is over…..gather yourselves”.

We return to our Nature …to establish a Conscious CommUnity – all of us Children of the Earth.

Here we live, as far as possible, from the paradigm’s demise …for it is all but over. When the destructive virus had reached here too – the very edge of the earth – it was clear that the whole world was now tainted.

We are here, though, in celebration of the new world we so long dreamed …manifesting its higher vibration …so to reach our divine destiny …with the trees, the animals, the birds, sky, water, earth …each other …in fact to serve the entire family of which we are part.

We come …to finally manifest who and what we are… for we truly know now why we are here! …even if It is late, we have come…!

Yes, the new world is birthing ….the old one in tatters So much harm has been done – the whole of the natural world is aggrieved. So let us reflect the love preserved in us ….express our gratitude… as conscious, we are already free… !

“…The time of the lone wolf is over – gather yourselves” … thus spoke Hopi Chief Martin. His words were heard by many …but heeded by few …we are inspired by this.

In the final hour …we come to honor Great Spirit …and in an act of mercy …leave the world its inheritance. .

East of Eden is a portal into the next dimension. It honors the path and purity …of Love.

Even as the finality of it stumbles through its ultimate delusions, blind and hapless …we will still remember its music, its writing …its HeArt …was always there.

We are acutely aware of the emergent crisis around us, unfathomable though it is by all previous experience. So let us hasten upon the Dream … t is time to weave the cloth anew – the dawn waits…

Children of the Earth …gather in this circle….

* * *

East of Eden manifests no orthodoxy, no doctrine; no system of belief …only Great Spirit is its ‘leader’ …we already live beyond the horizon…

Beloved Rainbow Family …Children of the Earth …come fulfil your Vision …now is the time to gather..

But consider well …also check out our filial Community www.edenhope.org Perhaps what you seek may well be found there… it’s ever so close…

* * *

We now stand at the very edge of the infinite, our roots deeply planted in yesterday’s Child, just as our future is in the world to which the child leads …we are in Sacred Space

“When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying,
a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds,
and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again.
They will be known as Warriors of the Rainbow”

    The most important criteria …is your history, your commitment to true sustainability – or the search for it…

    it is not in our perspective ‘to make a living’ – hence no economics apply… should current needs require subsidy, then sustainability has not yet been achieved – to the extent that the CommUnity must step up, so too is it with the individuals that comprise it…
