Land of Dawes is an Earth spirituality community forming on 38 acres of forest and field off the grid near Ithaca, NY, with a mission to live in harmony with the Earth and each other. Members gather in co-created ceremonies to give gratitude to the elements that sustain them: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. They invite families and friends to circle on the eight cross-quarters on the medicine wheel, to re-align themselves to the earth's cycles and seasons. Potluck, bonfire, sauna are shared at the end of each gathering. Poetry, song, chants and drumming, meditation and creative visualization are shared. They have organic gardens, concord grapes, blueberries and maple trees. There is a pond and sauna. They have solar energy and a generator to take care of their electric needs but value their small footprint on the earth.
