BELOVED SANCTUARY - A re-enchantment  

Alive and ensouled - we are one

Breathe in. Dig deep. Rooted in the earth, you may touch the heavens - experience BELOVED. 
Located a couple of miles from Olympia's westside, BELOVED is a celebration of the natural world and human nature. Immerse yourself in a diverse and beautiful landscape.
 
More than a venue, it is an invitation to go within. We start at the heart, feel BELOVED. 
Experience it. Wonder awaits. 

BELOVED is building community on site and an online platform, Soul Space. We have been witness to powerful unique experiences on the land. In essence, you meet yourself here--and far more deeply in love with your nature in anture. It is intended to be personal. It is your journey.

BELOVED offers immersion experiences that celebrate and honor our deep connection to nature and humanity. The arts are explored as creative tools of the imagination.

 

The purpose of the land is the reenchantment of the world through the return of the balance of the sacred feminine or the BELOVED. The feminine principle represents not only women but the earth as Mother Nature. In recognizing and honoring the animated or ensouled nature of our nature and Mother Nature, we reclaim our inheritance as natural inhabitants upon the earth and rebuild the sacred trust that will restore balance in our time. 

"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

John Muir 

Honoring Nature - the Divine Cathedral

A return to nature

In our experience working and playing with the land, Nature has come to life under our footprints, as we walk barefoot in sacred trust and gratitude upon the earth. We have experienced an awakening of our souls and the return of a new-old way of being upon and of the land.

 

Just as the soul of the land has reached out to us, it reaches out to you to in a collaborative invitation to restore the sacred marriage of heart and mind, male and female, heaven and earth. Enter the sanctuary BELOVED.

Come as you are....

Wonder at nature

An awakening

BELOVED is about the journey within and without. We have workshops and tools to help people achieve Self-realization, a state of consciousness that comes through shedding all outward self-definitions. We welcome all, regardless of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability. We are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming environment for everyone to pursue the search for your inner truth and to experience the joy of your own being.

We welcome all

Experience the joy of your own being 
Discover the beauty that lays hidden

BeLoved Teachings

In service to BELOVED, we are offering the BeLoved Teachings Platform. We invite you to a new/old way of being, an immersion into the Beloved. We enter the Fallow Period, a deep immersive offering as we come full circle. 

The Fallow Period will be a collaboration of Kim Lincoln and Heather Taylor-Zimmerman, offering the emergent teaching of the Beloved. Touch in with the intuitive energy and senses to gather in and hold the seeds of wisdom to facilitate deep rest and integration.

 

Leaps of growth arise when we are able to meet and be present with what appears to be nothing. This is the magic that the deep still darkness brings. Come explore the hidden realm. Discover the beauty that lays hidden.  

The Fallow Period

November 2nd, December 7th and January 4th

The depth of stillness offers closure for those for the first year's teaching and entrance to a new year. Beloved Teaching year two will be offered in the spring of 2020. 

Soul Space is launching 9.1.19 and will be accessible for the Beloved Teachings, an energetic hub. We have created a container, a reflection of Beloved: 

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." 

A living PURPOSE

A teaching from the heart

In the spirit of working with the land as a partner, the land is mapped as a living purpose—as not only a place but a Being and a teaching. Through this map, we offer a collaborative way to work with the land and its beings as representative of Nature Herself. This is a teaching from the heart of the land, that patterns a new way of relating with one’s self, others, and the world as a whole: atoned. It is a way of Being that offers a wellspring of inspiration that percolates up from the depths of the rich earth below to meet the star-lit beauty of the heavens above. You have all you need, come as you are.... No glamour or illusion. Real. Divine.

Rumi

"The universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself. Everything that you want you already are." 

At BELOVED we honor that harmony with the Starlit Hall, a resonance chamber with an 8-9 second decay. It is a bridge of Heaven and Earth, a space where we can bathe in the sound vibration - the symphony of the heavens. We can go deep within the cavern of our heart.

"The wonders of the music of the future will be of a higher & wider scale and will introduce many sounds that the human ear is now incapable of hearing. Among these new sounds will be the glorious music of angelic chorales. As men hear these they will cease to consider Angels as figments of their imagination." 

Mozart

Sound and our soul

A deep resonance

A new kind of map

BELOVED mists 

We have created a tool for our embodiment.

Botanicals from the perfection of Nature; alchemy for your mind, body and spirit. Ancient botanicals and rituals. An inspired blend of flower, tree and gemstone essences, pure hydrosols and artesian essential oils.

 

When we awaken to an expansive sense of being, connected energy, and do so in an embodied way, we paradoxically become more divinely ourselves. We ignite our passion. We wake up to our courage, to our authenticity and power. 

To be passionately authentic and alive. To awaken to the beautiful gift you have to offer the world ... you. Our mists are created to support relationship with self through embodiment of our Divinity. 

and so I CREATE

My fearless soul

I believe

my soul is my fearless guide. And so I follow her.

I believe

that I have a higher potential towards which I am lead. 

And so do you.

I believe

that creativity is the key to realizing this potential. 

And service is the WAY.

I believe

that creativity serves the soul. 

And so I CREATE.

I believe

that in creating, I create my soul. 

And a better world.

In creating from my soul, I connect to your soul. 

And together we can create ANYTHING.  

In this belief,

I work in service to humanity

And all of nature.

Group dynamics - inerconnected and interdependent

Systems Thinking

Synchronicity is nature’s way of collaborating and co-creating through emergent phenomenon. System’s thinking is a way to see and describe the big picture, to connect the dots in a way that recognizes that systems are organic and whole. An intuitive vision of the world, systems thinking sees the world as interconnected and interdependent, and humans as a part of not apart from this whole.
We work with you on your purpose. Whether it is public organizations, a private corporation or a group of old friends, we collaborate with you on your intention for the group. If you are vision boarding or story boarding or simply wanting to get a new perspective, BELOVED we can help you navigate the journey. 

“The more complex the network is, the more complex its pattern of interconnections, the more resilient it will be.”

Fritjof Capra

Eckhart Tolle

“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”

We gather as one, BELOVED. We honor our collective energy. At our source we are expansive energy. In that connection we have access to our truth. We claim our power as we move from Self.

"Above all the grace the gifts that Christ gives to his beloved is that of overcoming self." 

St. Francis of Assisi

We are not one thing or another at BELOVED. We are all things. 

We are not exclusive. We are inclusive. We are creating a

community to allow us to overcome our self and live in service. 

"It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community - a community practicing their understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living. This may be the most important thing that we can do for the survival of the earth." 

Thich Nhat Hanh

You are not alone

We gather together as the lost BELOVED 
We are connected energetically

We are a tribe

Humans have a deep need to belong and contribute. Blue Zones are an anthropological concept that describes the characteristic lifestyles and environments of the world's longest-lived people. The term first appeared in National Geographic in 2005 in an article "The Secrets of a Long Life" by Dan Buettner. He identified five geographic areas where people live longer and healthier lives, statistically. His explanation, based on empirical data and first hand observations, was that we need to create connections in a community. We need a tribe. We need connection.
