Nestled in a wildlife refuge on a dam between Lake Cheerful and Lake Garrett is The Heron House: Sacred Earth Sanctuary. The venue, in the Mountain Parks area of Roswell, hosts workshops, movement classes, meditation, study groups, live music and film screenings.
For the first time since it opened in 2007, the organization is offering memberships through a Friendship Drive.
“In such a disconnected world, it’s important to have a place to connect,” says Julie West, spiritual director of Heron House. “When we opened Heron House in 2007, we envisioned a welcoming, sustainable gathering place to encourage connection, conversation, fellowship, support and fun. Now, that has materialized. The funny thing is, just a few years ago, I realized that I had envisioned it when I was just a child. So, it has become a dream come true.”
Several communities use Heron House as a base, including meditation, yoga and movement communities. The building also houses a suite for people to rent for personal retreats and organizes an Ambassador Program that serves people in need.
The annual membership cost is $100. Friends of Heron House receive 10% off public events and rentals. To learn more, call 404-434-4030 or visit TheHeronHouse.org.
