A potentially ideal 30-acre project site has been identified near Santa Fe and we have received significant donations to acquire this land. We are working to close the acquisition in the first quarter of 2017.
Crystal Earth Pavilion design refinements feature a large “Temple Seed” in a kiva-like space below the massive base crystal.
A draft phased development plan for the Crystal Earth Pavilion (CEP) site has been created:
Phase 1 – Land acquisition, permitting and initial crystal feature;
Phase 2 – Functional CEP space including excavation, crystals and roof;
Phase 3 – Complete main CEP, visitor center & ancillary experience structures;
Phase 4 – Complete site development including potential small retreat center.
Community Participation and Fundraising
An Inaugural Event gala weekend in Santa Fe successfully introduced the project to aligned groups and individuals, many of whom are now actively participating in the project.
The project hosted regular Crystal Earth gatherings in Santa Fe for the community to stay connected with project updates. We are confident these gatherings will evolve into working meetings for project supporters and volunteers. As we move into 2017 there will be the need for many capable hands and inspired hearts working with the project!
A Benefit Auction offered a range of opportunities for active project involvement including donating and purchasing items and services. The 2016 Benefit Auction and associated raffle raised $17,000 and laid the groundwork for continuing connection with supporters through an ongoing Benefit Auction in our online shop.
