Bringing us up to date for Winter Solstice 2012 and beyond
Welcome friends - old and new - to the White Mountain web site
Thanks to everyone for your support during the summer of 2011- our last stand for the land ownership. Apologies that we have taken so long to provide more of an update.
What happened more than a year ago now was a big one for us, our minds and hearts challenged by apparently not succeeding with our belief that the two main buildings used by White Mountain and the land around should be ‘saved’ for the work that had started there, and that a way would surely be found. At the legal deadline, we had to face facts and move out – simple as that in the end, with Julie and her family having the extra shock and dismay of not receiving any recompense in the process, only expenses.
For new visitors to the site, we are delighted that you have found us and hope you find a place like this one day. Maybe you already have?
White Mountain Retreat in Crete ran as a successful Retreat and Healing Centre for six years and has been closed since 2006. It had a spectacular location overlooking the sea, with lovely buildings and gardens, set in terraced olive groves and some rugged countryside – and so was naturally provided with a peaceful, spacious setting. More than anything else, in its vibrant energy, this place was and is simply wonderful. When you are in this energy, it is like an oasis, for the weary soul to rest and replenish itself, to take inspiration and delight, to feel safe, loved and accepted.
The Friends of White Mountain tried to safeguard the property from being sold but were not successful. The rest of the land and Owl house are being sold by Julie’s family to repay debts and make a completion of some sort, separate from the White Mountain story.
However, life goes on. Our friend and guide Brother John told us to remember that ‘whatever happens – it is part of the Plan!’
Although White Mountain Retreat is closed, we have decided to leave the web site open for the moment since it is a route for people to tune in with the energy via the words and pictures; the White Mountain Retreat energy itself is very much alive, it has not gone anywhere and lives on in us all.
We have been privileged to be a part of something so wonderful, and hope there will be openings to do more of this kind of thing if opportunities arise! Browse through the site and see what aspects interest and light you up, from what was manifested. We hope it will give you inspiration to follow your dream.
