I can't remember if I've mentioned The Grove before or not? Behind Holy City is a lot of mountain acreage. Not far from the studio is an amazing natural redwood cathedral, that has been turned into a quiet place of meditation and thought over the years. Some people come to celebrate the solstice, others to pray or meditate, and some just come to see.
The trees form a ring, inside of which is a large deep floor. At one end is a kind of Altar. I'm not sure how the Altar started, but little trinkets and charms appear and disappear, flowers are laid, and photos of deceased loved ones are carefully placed.
The photos don't quite do it justice, but I thought you might like to see.
