Roofing the Roundhouse at Spirit Horse

by Spirit Horse in United Kingdom

New stretch target

Spirit Horse, a secret kingdom where nature is allowed to return to her original face, is home to a number of ceremonial structures, all built by the loving hands of an ecstatic community, in love with making beautiful shelters which house beautiful things. 

Any extra funds raised will support the upkeep and creativity of these temple spaces, which become home to a remaking of culture, a rewilding of people, and a returning to original nature, simplicity and the majesty of Life. 

They are built honouring the old ways with exquisite attention and a fiery passion of making home.  Lead by master carpenter Shivam O'Brien, the building crew use natural and recycled materials only, connected to and revering from whence it came. This is an example of an eco-village, demonstrating true sustainability, and a new way of living in this world which is so utterly needed at this present time. 

Your support is huge. Thank you.


Help us roof the Roundhouse at Spirit Horse, Wales.

 

This magnificent structure, built to house a rebirth of sacred culture and communal reverence for nature, sits beneath a waterfall overlooking 200 acres of land which was purchased purely to let it all go wild. 

Erected on oak posts, rammed into the earth, this roundhouse resembles in all ways those of our celtic ancestors and has been made by the joyous sweat and ecstatic creativity of a tribal mirth and collective dream, described as rare in these days. 

We want to roof it in shingles from the local forest. We urgently need 2,378 pounds to buy a lorry load of Douglas fir. The rest of the work we will manage (with the will and gut and strength of all of those people who have fell in love again with life here.)

See here in these pictures above, a small timber shrine that we built to house our generator, to honour the tiny bit of fossil fuel that runs our saws. It’s roofed in larch shingles. It’s a tiny building, but the whole majestic roundhouse could look like that, merging into the wild forest and the mountain grandeur that surrounds it.

Spirit Horse is a small secret kingdom that brings people back to the earth and to themselves, in radical spiritual and emotional honesty, working outside the commercial box. All who contribute to this small fund are welcome to visit, share our fire, supper and stories next May and June. If we manage to gather more money it will go towards the potatoes and trays of tea for all the volunteer builders, cooks and helpers. If you want to be one of them; get in touch. 

Love and greetings from the Spirit Horse Tribe, rewilding people, land, culture and life.
