The place exudes a sense of deep peace, comfort and even magic throughout. Here are some photos taken on our journey, but they cannot convey the ever-present bird sounds, the breezes, the effects on the body of sitting at the sacred spaces. I will definitely return!
Carli called it "An amusement park for nature." We both agreed being inside the dolmen stone structure near one entrance to the trail creates a feeling of ultimate safety, comfort, and peace we have rarely felt before.
When I first learned of Earth Sanctuary, the entry fee kept me away. I thought, why does someone need to pay to walk in woods, when there are many other locations on Whidbey I can walk for free? I quickly changed my mind after seeing what is actually at Earth Sanctuary. How much care, spiritual advisement, and what must be an enormous amount of funds to place stone structures, prayer wheels, and maintain trails and plantings.
May these photos convey even a bit of the peace we experienced today. You can't put a price or value on that.
Thank you Earth Sanctuary!
