Shining Grove Sanctuary

[Witchvox Sponsor]

Magickal Path: Old Craft/hereditary
Age Group: Adult
Sun Sign: Pisces
Occupation: Artist/writer/medical
Gender: Male
Relationship Status: Single
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Located in: Asheville / Hot Springs, North Carolina

Likes: Recognition of the value inherent in elder praxis with continued exploration resulting in the evolution of the human spirit. Optimism and determination.. Discernment through direct experience. Those who go to the source for proper understanding and do not follow nay-sayers. Those with an open mind toward a positive alternative. Our Bill of Rights, our original Constitution and people who practice the ancient art of thinking. Archery, Woodworking, Metalsmithing, Drumming, Middle Eastern Dance, opera, live music, thunder and lightening, the sound of the lovers the next tent over at a festival, joy, travel, critters. Sacred landscaping. Just a whole bunch of things!

Dislikes: Television. Gluttony, Undisciplined types, Smoking. At the end of the day, what does it matter? All things change, the weak grow stronger, the ignorant grow in knowledge and experience, people develop moderation. So while there may be things I dislike they are only temporary both in myself and others. Perhaps it would be best to say I would very much dislike losing hope, hope in our evolution. May all who visit here find your way to healing and harmony with your higher purpose.

Shining Grove Sanctuary's Profile...

I have bought land and settled near Hot Springs to build a modest sanctuary for meditation and praxis. The standing stone circle has been completed. Thanks to the Gods and those who are giving their support, believing in my vision.
The tradition I follow is more allied to Old Craft than anything else and has its root in hereditary practice, my father being the main influence.
I recognize a need for a place where others may gather and to that end I have bent my will to create such a retreat. Such sanctuaries have been a comfort and inspiration to me in the past. So this is one way to say thank you to all those who shared their energies and resources. I hope you enjoy this offering. Let it be a tranquility garden for your soul.
Please refer to the Shining Grove Sanctuary listing for further information.
Thank you. Stone\

Robert Lowe Greetings community,
Recently I have received some interest from folks wishing to help out at Shining Grove! This is most welcome. This post is to outline what projects are in need of attention and completion. At present, the grounds may be more suited for adults, as it is much like a construction zone with nails and equipment hazardous to children. This can be reevaluated at a later time. The Grove is drug and alcohol free, with designated smoking away from the main areas. Bless you for understanding.
First the grounds need to be cleaned up! Then the list bellow.
1. Finish guest cottage
2. Apply finish coat of stucco to earth lodge and paint.
3. Complete storage shed and clean out the earth lodge.
4. Dig and pour concrete support piers for tiny hose/addition.
5. Dig and pour concrete piers for outdoor kitchen deck.
6. Erect deck for outdoor kitchen.
7. Build floor for addition.
8. If funds permit, put metal roof on earth lodge before winter.
9. Miscellaneous painting, garden preparation for next year, etc.
So there is the outline of needed focus to bring the Grove to operation. I want to complete the guest cottage first to allow extended stay opportunities for those dedicated to volunteering for more than a day. It will have a comfy loft, a counter with a two burner stove, a studio sized fridge, storage for clothes, and a reading chair inside. We will also build a port potty for guest while using the toilet inside the camper until completion.
Waiting until the place is just so or just that until help is requested is no longer wise. The time is now. As some of you know I have a few health problems and unfortunately I was recently hospitalized and a Cerebral Aneurysm was detected. It is profoundly important that I find more communal ways to complete this project and do not attempt to finish it myself. With few exceptions that is what I have been doing and it has cost me injury. If I could go full bore like I used to then I would, but now is the time to make the Sanctuary ready for you all to use. So I humbly invite those willing to come out and donate some time insuring the Grove serves as it is intended.
A dedication ceremony will start the days efforts, blessing the workers and the land. The fare may be simple but you will be fed and given fresh spring water. Thank you all for your interest and please call or IM me here. Thank you. Stone
