We have developed a wide range of membership opportunities, because a wide range of volunteers, facilitators, and eco-preneurs are what will make the Rosseau Sanctuary a sustainable, thriving community.
Wood Plan Membership
Wood Membership Plans are $400/year, and need to be approved 60 days before the beginning of the Members’ first event. Wood Plan Members are able to access the Residency Program and practitioner retreats at a discounted rate, and invite guests to either of these programs as well. Wood Plan Members can book events for a reduced rate, receive an online presence and social media marketing support to support their events, and access a very broad list of healing arts practitioners to collaborate with on running retreats and circles of care at the Sanctuary.
Work Exchange Membership
Work Exchange Membership Plans require a minimum of 40hrs of volunteer support at the Sanctuary, across at least 2 seasons/year. Once 40hrs has been given, Work Exchange Members can access the Residency Program (renewed annually). Work Exchange Members also receive opportunities to apply to join sacred builds, community ceremonies, and benefit from barter opportunities within the broader community project (e.g., harvest, workshop discounts).
As we grow, resource sharing opportunities are available for eco-conscious and sustainable living enterprises to incubate / operate in partnership with the Sanctuary and the broader community project. Enterprises will focus on healthy environmentally responsible initiatives such as permaculture, medicinal foraging, organic food production, natural health and natural building. Ideal for individuals and groups to grow their sustainable living skills while creating an income stream, as well as resource exchange opportunities for the community. This membership includes free participation in several of our Earth-based healing workshops, while also offering opportunities for Members to participate in it’s own learning and development opportunities. (Call for Proposals for 2019 Eco-Enterprises will be announced this March)
Earth-Based Healing Internships $1,200 / year
Launching in 2020, this program is designed for individuals ready to deepen their earth-based healing skills and training through long-term on-site internships that deepen our connection with ourselves, each other and the Earth. We are developing a whole series of courses and workshops, including certificate programs in various earth-based healing modalities. Some examples include medicinal foraging, healing through the elements, vision quests, plant-based ceremony, sacred fire-keeping, and how to live in tune with the lunar, solar, and seasonal calendar. These training programs will include on-site, 6-8 week live-in programming as well as equivalent internships that can be completed over a number of weekends across the year.
