The HeartGate is a striking 10,000 sq. ft. building, circa 1910, whose large rooms, high ceilings, beauty, and sublime Presence provide an exceptional space for our residential study and retreat abbey.
Yet The HeartGate is not a drop-in for those who wish to take a break from daily routine. It is for those who are deeply motivated and involved in the mystery of Self-unfoldment, and who sense their readiness to have a spiritual master support realization.
Annam (Elle Collier Re) has been mentoring students since 1985. She offers an unabridged way to align in Source, reorient to true Nature and shed the mind debris that keeps us from evolving. This is very potent training. There is no other quite like it. (see information under spiritual leaders).
- group courses (1 – 7 days)
- personal retreats (1 day to 3 weeks)
- residential immersions (one month to two years)
- mentorship programs: year-long individualized course work
- teleLinks: satsang teaching and transmission by conference call
In Annam's words: “I seek no devotees. I ask that those who come just ache to be Whole, and that they be unpresuming enough to be Guided by Oneness.
Where we are:
The HeartGate is located above the charming resort village of Hood River, Oregon, just 1 breathtaking hour’s drive east of Portland along the scenic Columbia River Gorge. Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams stand as sentinels to the south and north and the area abounds in waterfalls, lakes, and wilderness. Hood River is noted for world-class wind surfing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and skiing, as well as its bounty of wine and fruit orchards. Great restaurants, art, music, and festivals add to the magic of this popular destination.
