CWV is asking you to help us complete Phase I of an exciting journey to develop a transformational retreat facility. Phase I is the Due Diligence Legal Transfer of 55 Acres of Land in Northern Mississippi. We have come to CrowdRise and are reaching out to you because we want to connect with people who have a real yearning to change the world. If you believe that what you do matters, if you believe that you can make a difference when you join with others, we are searching for you. We genuinely need donations and resources. But if your heart burns with a desire for justice, what we truly need is you.
The Miracle in Mississippi:
The Retreat Center will include one building of one, two, and three bedroom suites to accommodate 30 people, two Hermitages, recording studio, and a pavilion. In addition to these buildings, the Center features a Main Building that includes a Training Facility, Staff Offices, Meeting Rooms, Media Center, Massage and Meditation Rooms, Indoor Swimming Pool and Jacuzzi hot tubs, Exercise Rooms, Gift Shop, fully-staffed kitchen, and dining area. On the grounds there will also be a community campfire area, meditation gardens, sweat lodge, sound barriers, butterfly gardens, walking trails, labyrinth, pastures, food growth, and alternative energy areas.
What is CWV?
CWV works to help people change themselves from the inside out. One heart, one mind, one person at a time, whether individually or in groups, hearts of stone change to hearts of flesh. We learn and teach how to love. Only love can conquer hate and no one else is going to do it for us. We are the ones who must change this world.
