Beyond Busy at the Heart of AN!

Our beautiful AN•Sonqo land is getting ready for May's Activation of the Tower of Light of AN. 
And Manzana loves it here!

We are making lots of progress in our preparations for our May Special Events, but there is still so much to do. Our new metal fence has now been painted green. No more shiny silver color. It looks much better since now we barely see it. German and his crew are putting the finishing touches [ Read More…. ]

So much to do to birth the New at the Heart of AN!

The exquisite view of our neighbor's fields and nearby Apus from the far edge of our new land!

We are in full on action mode here at the Heart of AN to get ready for May’s Special Events. At times, we have had up to thirteen people working on the new land. And there is still much more to do! The new metal fence is in position. Roberto and his cousin are completing [ Read More…. ]

On the Fast Track at the Heart of AN!

Walking on the border between our new land and older land and seeing all that still needs to be done so we will be ready for May's Activation of the Tower of Light of AN.

On the final day of March, the center point of the future Tower of Light of AN was established and placed into the ground. This felt surprisingly strong. It also felt as if our beautiful new sacred land had been waiting for this for a long time. Since then, we’ve been traveling on the Fast [ Read More…. ]

A Turning Point at the Heart of AN

Roberto and Pedro enjoyed making the rock wall together on our new land. They both have such sweet, gentle energy.

This past week we have felt that we reached a Turning Point here. Suddenly we can see significant progress in many areas. The public path on the far side of our new land is almost complete. Next week, we hope to start on the fence. We will also begin flattening the center part so it [ Read More…. ]

Ho’o Pono Pono at the Heart of AN!

The first day of March began with an emergency visit from our plumber Olger to repair a broken pipe in the water pump for our house.

The last few weeks have been full of making things right. We had a dead car battery on a Sunday and couldn’t find our jumper cables, but after several hours, finally got it going. We dealt with a broken pipe on our water pump and still have one more broken pipe to fix. And we’ve [ Read More…. ]

Unexpected Changes at the Heart of AN!

Low morning clouds above the Heart of AN.

February began with a fiesta and our final land payment. But that was just the beginning of a wild roller coaster ride. As we were going up that long first hill, little did we know what surprises were ahead of us. Eloy and his brother Elvin were busy creating the new public path on the [ Read More…. ]

Miracle Accomplished at the Heart of AN!

Many of the dancers wear masks, often with blue eyes which look so strange.

Yesterday, after several delays beyond our control, we finally made the last payment on our exquisite AN•Sonqo Sanctuary land! What almost seemed impossible last June was accomplished with the help of our beloved Family of AN (YOU!). And it feels perfect that it was done with your help, rather than just by us. This special [ Read More…. ]

Mega Breakthroughs at the Heart of AN!

We went over to our exquisite new AN•Sonqo Sanctuary Land the other day with Eloy and discussed what we would do there in the next few months to prepare it for the Activation of the Tower of Light of AN on May 23.

WE DID IT! We now have the money to buy our AN•Sonqo Sanctuary Land. Beloved Family of AN ~ THANK YOU, Thank You, thank you! We are deeply touched by your support and know that we could not have done this without you! <3 Last June when the AN•Sanctuary land became available for sale, it [ Read More…. ]

A New, True Year at the Heart of AN!

On January 3rd, we greatly enjoyed a visit with Matteo and Chalo from France and Chile! Chalo used to live in the Sacred Valley and was the Overseer of the building of our house. He loves to return here and see all the progress we have made. And we love to see them! They now live in Concepcion, Chile where they have the delicious Panaderia 44!

Since the day after Christmas, I’ve been immersed in writing my two Surf Reports ~ one for 2017 and one for January. It is always such a marathon to do two Surf Reports back to back. They were finally finished on January 7th. Since then, we have been super busy trying to complete various projects. [ Read More…. ]
