A Conversation on Community Conservation
In February, Lewa’s own Faith Riunga (Head of Education) and John Kinoti (Head of Community Development) were the keynote speakers at the Royal Geographical Society in London.
Faith and John spoke to an audience of approximately 300 on Lewa's model of community-centric conservation, and how this is benefiting both people and wildlife. You can watch an edited version of the lecture, titled “Where Conservation, Education and Community Converge”, HERE.
In the wake of catastrophic declines of vulture populations across Africa, Lewa has partnered with the Peregrine Fund, Northern Rangelands Trust, and Marwell Wildlife to monitor and protect critical breeding sites in northern Kenya.
Chalisa the Adventurer
Last seen in Samburu in 2013, Chalisa, a young lion, was recently spotted on Lewa. This was exciting news for us and our lion conservation partners. Chalisa is proving that, despite pressure from increase in human settlements, lion populations across the landscape are still connected. Find out more HERE.
Every year, over 1,400 individuals run the marathon on Lewa for different reasons. For 22-year-old Bindya, it is a step towards her dream of an ideal Kenya. Find out more about this impressive young woman and her fundraising effort HERE.
Lewa in the News: New Technology for Conservation
Find out about the Domain Awareness System (DAS), a new computer tool that aggregates huge amounts of information in real time to help protect wildlife. Already in use here on Lewa, the system, developed by Vulcan Inc, is a game changer in conservation. Read the article in National Geographic HERE.
Little Elephant is Rescued
Our resident Kenya Wildlife Service vet Dr Mathew Mutinda was part of the team that rescued this little elephant - found next to water wells - having waited for her herd to return for over 36 hours. When her herd didn't return, she was moved to Reteti Orphanage where she will be cared for until old enough to go back into the wild. Watch a video on our Instagram HERE.
So many of us, in our endeavor to "become spiritual" or "whole" have sought after "teachers", "teachings", modalities, tools and philosophies that we hoped would "open doors" and shed some BIG LIGHT on who we really are and what we are doing here; only to make some good progress....for a while.....and then "falling" right back to the "place"- we started from...experiencing the same patterns, spirals, relationships, blocks and experiences that 'called' us to begin our search in the first place.
This is a very common experience for those of the "earth-human" life.....and we are here to offer you a FRESH new look at this situation and to initiate the ALCHEMY...OR SPIRITUAL RE-CALIBRATION...that will "set you on your ...PURE-path" to all that you are seeking. We have entered a "new light"...that means that you have too.....So please do yourselves the great service of just "showing up" and making yourself available...to receive the transmissions of light and love from your Source that will generate the ABUNDANCE - WEALTH - HEALTH - LOVE, SUCCESS - AND JOY that is your ABSOLUTE DIVINE INHERITANCE AND DIVINE RIGHT.
Robin L. Modaffare
"Meeting Robin Modaffare brings new meaning to love at first sight. With her infectious laughter, she will ignite the reality within, that you have just found what you never knew you had always been looking for! In moments you will begin to feel your heart center begin to open to connect to Source Love." M.E., Seattle, WA.
Robin/Chenoa (White Dove) first became aware of her "insight" as a child. Then as a young woman she had numerous opportunities to use her abilities; this guided her to hone her deep wisdom/knowing through extensive study of meta-physics, world religions, quantum physics, esoteric writings, diverse systems of healing, psychology and sociology.
In the earlier part of her life, she was an avid student of the bible and religion; Robin received her credentials as an ordained Minister in 1991; her masters in Religion in 1993 and her certificate of Doctor of Philosophy in Religion in 2000. The completion of her studies, as well as some years of extensive teaching and counseling resulted in the privilege of working (non-denominationally) with those that were guided to her for healing, counseling and a greater understanding of their purpose in this life and the challenges that they were facing. It was during this time that Robin began to study and work with 'subtle' energies and healing techniques; this eventually led her to her "true work" with individuals as a Light Facilitator. She has also been a practicing meta physician since 1989; or what one might call a "modern mystic" or "shaman". The last several years - she has presented a series of classes, teleconferences, intensives, workshops and conducted interviews and directed, as well as facilitated healing and co-creative groups around the country. This work has taken her to both coasts of the United States and many areas in-between.
Over the last 30 years Robin has continued her growth and education with Native American shaman and many other very "gifted" practitioners learning their traditions of healing. The culmination of her extensive background has prepared her to teach a wide variety of classes. She has also helped many find their "true path" with I AM soul readings, workshops, seminars, retreats, intensives, mentoring and one on one private counseling sessions.
It is with the highest of intention and love and with complete clarity given her to aid others in their process; that she humbly offers her services to all as a Transformational Imagery Consultant, healer, writer, speaker and medium. Robin is able to channel energies to assist you to hear and access your own "I AM Presence" to realize your full potential and inner truth.
Robin has the mystical and magical ability to put into words what most only recognize as indescribable mysteries. As she translates the information she is shown, your Divine Being awakens to the joy of understandable knowledge. Currently practicing in Arizona (having spent much of her life on both coasts of the U. S.) it is her life's work to assist those who desire to know themselves
and to work toward becoming an "awakened-being" - one who will recognize
that they are Love and potentially, a "fully conscious" participant in the
"greatest evolution" that Mankind has ever seen.

Native American Music Fund
The Native American Music Fund was established to introduce music education to Native American children. Music has always been an integral part of the Native American culture, but has lost it's significance in modern times. We seek to reintroduce music to the lives of Native children by funding music workshops here on the Navajo Reservation.
We are having fun with youth through music. We are a program under the Gathering of Healers is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt non-profit corporation. We Are Raising Funds To: Provide instruments to the children that have limited resources. Purchase music books for the children. Organize music workshops for communities. We are looking for sponsors and grants to help with these dreams.

Robin's work over.. 3 decades now, has resulted in "miraculous" growth & healing for many beautiful souls. As host of "Conversations With Spirit" a Talk Radio Show Robin has begun to take her "love based" and powerful messages to those seeking greater "peace"....bringing understanding, 'light', transformation & joy - as they come to a deeper relationship with their Source.
She brings a message of Divine simplicity, Light, Presence, Unconditional Love and the Highest Vision possible for all of mankind. Her "invitation" is - to have you "come" and "play" with her on that stage....The stage of "being human". To see yourself ...as she sees you.....As the perfect, loving and PURE expression of the Creator - Itself.
As the embodiment of an "energy" whose essence is Source...Robin brings the 'fullness' of her masterful "knowing"... to each precious and miraculous experience with you in order to - "open the gates" to the Light of Source......to "bring forth" that which will serve you in the highest. Admittedly... only a facilitator for this All Knowing Source......Robin gives herself completely to each and every "meeting" with those who are seeking to "know themselves" in order that they might come back into that beautiful essence, frequency and vibration .....that is their natural way of expressing.
