Magic is afoot! God is alive!

Lots of exciting fall programs are in the works. Potential is brewing! While we’re readying for what’s to come, we are busy with ongoing projects. 

  • The Sacred Tree, by Zap McConnell, now stands at the center of the Mothership. Her brilliance is alive in this epic sculpture that invites everyone’s engagement.  
  • Beautiful bookshelves, crafted by Mike Davis, are in the works. Encircling the tree, they will hold our future lending library!
  • The annual garden is luscious and vibrant. Our new pollinator garden is flowering! 
  • We’ve shared our first vegetable donations with a local feeding ministry, and we’re engaging youth volunteers on land projects.

Community support sustains our operations and enables the scope of projects!

Help Sustain Our Work!

Update from “the community at Dreaming Stone”

… still working on a name.

There’s a lot to keep track of, between the beloved souls visiting and those hunkering down with us for awhile. We’d previous shared the awesome news of Leonardo Moreno, old Carnivalista and lead singer of Cienaños, bringing his family (wife, Romina, and baby, León) to be with us at Dreaming Stone. More recently, we shared that they are in Italy, handling visa logistics and legal immigration processes, for which we ask your prayers. And our exciting update is that they will be returning to Dreaming Stone with a new little one! Yes, they are expecting a little girl in mid July, around the time that León turns 2! So please, hold them in the light, with all the power of your love!  We miss them and expect their return in the Fall. 
The grief of the world is not lost on us. We are holding it even as we hold the joy of building community and learning from the land. May our capacity to understand joy and sorrow forever deepen, and may we knit each other into circles of care that sustain us through the storms!

Much Love,
Tevyn East
Executive Director
Dreaming Stone Arts and Ecology Center
