After this year’s Conference of One Accord, IIWP offered complimentary tours to Windermere Ranch from LA on Monday July 9th and Tuesday July 10th. Our entertaining (and quite loving) IIWP volunteer Andrew Baillie was our tour guide and van driver, and Dave Wright helped him out once folks got to Windermere. Peacemakers from around the world had a chance to see the Ranch, connect with the horses, llamas, sheep, goats, mini cattle, and chickens, and just be present in the peace of nature.
Below are testimonials from our volunteer Dave Wright and some of the tour participants, plus some fun pictures. Enjoy, and we hope to see you at the Ranch soon! (For more info on visiting Windermere, just visit IIWP’s website at www.iiwp.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Life on Windermere Ranch just got a whole lot better. Want to know how? Want to know why? Well, pull on your tie dyed shirt with the peace symbol on it and I’ll tell you that 24 amazing souls visited the ranch on Monday & Tuesday after Conference and now the place is all full of new blessings and peace so deep the Grand Canyon is jealous. Thank you guys for supporting and visiting the ranch. It is a manifestation of our tithing. If you love grandma’s cookies ya gotta visit grandma! Peace.

Really enjoyed the entire experience. I just allowed and flowed with whatever was going on and had a wonderful time. Andrew’s knowledge of history and the area made it that much more interesting.

The Windermere Tour was delightful! I loved the laid back way we were shown around and got to participate with the beautiful horses, Valentine, Casper, chickens, dogs, goats, healing rocks. Beautiful people, beautiful land, beautiful day!

Everybody was so funny, the jokes never stopped. AZ, IL, Canada, VA, from sea to shining sea, were represented, with ages from 21 to 80 — what a great group!

For us it was a pleasure to have participated in our first Windermere experience. It was really an experience of peace, harmony, centeredness and being in the presence of the Beloved, to feel the qualities of the horses and feel like we would put ourselves into them.
In particular, we value the peace, calm, tranquility, spectacular view of the ocean and the city of Santa Barbara, the balance of nature, lake, flowers Victoria Regia, the warmth of the first horse to come out to greet us, he wanted to be next to us, the flexibility of the hens and their quality… jejejeje … anyway … 1000 soft and deep experiences!!!
