Our Location:

Located in picturesque Washington County, New York, on 80 acres of forest, fields and wetlands., open rolling lawns with ponds, meandering streams, lovely gardens and well maintained trails invite people to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature. The main house and outbuildings are supportive of intimate retreats and personalized workshops. This is a place of serenity where people come to relax, contemplate, receive healing, be inspired, learn and create.

For over 5 years, Elandara has been listening to the land, receiving  visions and guidance  from the spiritual realm and developing a Master Plan for the property. We are truly in changing times, and the need for facilities and programs that support personal empowerment and offer immersion in nature are tremendous. 

 

A personal story:

I am a visionary artist and am deeply connected to the land and to awakening consciousness.  I trust those spirit filled voices and visions and live by them. I now realize that for twenty years, visions I have been painting led me to this new home. In 2014 these visions began to appear in greater detail, showing me area maps and images of streams and waterfalls. I literally walked into my dream in September 2015 when I purchased this property. A good friend was visiting and asked if the property had a name.  As I stood quietly and asked for its name, Nature’s Gate came through loud and clear. This name aptly describes the feeling one has when entering the property, as though a portal opens to beauty and serenity inviting you in to explore more deeply.

 

It took a lot of trust and courage to follow my visions and now I am called to reach out and begin the fund raising necessary to grow the mission. Some of the important groundwork has been accomplished. The property was purchased with cash and I have begun to share the vision for Nature’s Gate with the community. The “Elandra Arts” website has been revamped and my healing collection of flower essences are rebranded under the name ”Essence of Life”. Workshops are underway, clients are coming for services and the gardens are growing and overflowing with abundance.  I am beyond thrilled to be working with and learning more about horses. A part of the dream is to add equine therapy to the healing services offered here.

 

Financial support:

Your financial contributions are greatly appreciated. The contributions that have come in from the first investors have been used to purchase equipment needed to maintain the property. We are truly grateful for this support.  We are in the midst of creating a private Land Trust as well as continuing to update our 5 year Capitol Improvement / Master Plan with plans to  form a 501C-3 not for profit organization .

 

Your financial contributions will go towards the up front cost of establishing the land trust and the design and building of facilities for workshops, retreats and  event programming.  All contributions large or small are greatly appreciated!

If you are an investor who would like a copy of our current 5 year Master Plan, please contact Elandara

With the deepest of gratitude,
Elandara Anderson
