BENEFITING: Shakti Rising, Inc.
An excerpt from "For a New Home" by John O'Donohue: "May this home be a place of discovery, where the possibilities that sleep in the clay of your Soul can emerge to deepen and refine your vision for all that is yet to come to birth."
Sol Alchemy and Shakti Rising are coming together (along with additional community partners like Asmi Yoga, Bend Zendo and Divine Guidance with Kaira) to co-create the next chapter of our spiritual community center...our gathering place...our sacred temple.
There is a growing need in our community and region for spaces that provide diverse pathways to spiritual exploration and practice and that use a paradigm of teaching and learning that is holistic, experiential and community-based. The strength of Sol Alchemy's grassroots-feel and reach in this community comined with Shakti Rising's 16-year track record of success building innovative programs that transform the lives of individuals, families and communities is an alchemical recipe for profound growth, change, grace and joy! Both organizations humbly and gratefully offer our strengths and sacred partnership to this community and region as a gift and offering.
Our invitation for you is to join us by sharing energy in the form of currency that will support the building, growth and thriving of this exciting endeavor. Your funds will be used for this period of growth in the following ways, with our commitment to you that your investment now will help us grow to create long-term sustainability in the future.
- Formally launching Shakti Oregon as Sol Alchemy's sister- and partner organization in Bend.
- Assisting us in closing the gap (for approximately 6 months) between our former rent/utilities/insurance and our higher rent/utilities/insurance in the new temple space.
- "Beautility" (e.g, carpet cleaning, paint, furniture, yoga/meditation/other equipment & supplies). As in, we believe in making everything in the space intentional, practical AND beautiful, as well as using the space itself to BE an example of the multi-dimensional Truth of our Being and multiple ways of teaching and learning.
- Materials and labor to build a rolling, sound-proof wall to divide the space when needed. This will increase our impact exponentially, as we know we are meant to share the space with a growing number of diverse practitioners, groups and organizations.
- Ongoing investment in Spirit-guided ways of doing marketing, growing our online presence and influence (e.g, website, yoga business platform, social media) and launching video- and online-based yoga and meditation classes and experiences.
Thank you for believing in us and for your inspiring generosity.
