Notes from the nonprofit

We operate from a traditional tribal model of extended community round table as an eco-spiritual church. Many of the titles and comments are are not inclusive of what we do and how we do it, and we have answer protocol questions here to the best of our ability. As best as we can, we operate similarly to structured churches, and our nonprofit status is as such. To more fully understand our organization process we invite you to read about our Leadership at https://www.yraceburu.org/leadership.html. Thank you for your interest.

Helping Hooves Project

This equine self-awareness program, called the Helping Hooves Project, assists and supports other community resources in reducing the involvement of women and children suffering from symptoms of PTSD and domestic violence and assist in emotional healing and lifestyle improvement.

Using horses to assist individuals provides in-depth observations of the natural environment and reflections of self that serve as metaphors that offer practical applications. By developing sensitivity to a horse in the natural world, participants can enhance their life skills. Intimate contact with a powerful animal affords people a higher degree of empathy and awareness that can be transferred to others.

Our work with the Rocky Mountain Monarch Butterfly has shifted to the Pacific Coast Monarch and other butterflies in the fields of education, research and preservation. We work in community and schools to increase engagement and curiosity. By maintaining our butterfly garden we have created an interactive classroom for all ages to be engaged in the natural world. This outdoor classroom is a tool where we incorporate hands-on activities for every subject! Many do not spend their time outdoors; providing them a garden that is used in our school & ranch program gives them an opportunity to be outside and interact with nature. By maintaining our garden people l develop a connection with the outdoors from an early age. This enriching experience is something that they will keep with them for the rest of their lives.

We are a registered Monarch Way Station and were trained in our programming by Las Vegas National Wildlife Refuge educator Debbie Pike. This program is now in it's beginning stages in San Diego County.

Whether you're a long standing community member or just finding us, this year of Cyclic Earth Ceremonies helps individuals heal, growth, and find satisfaction – literally. Meet Mother on Her Holy Days and find connection and love.
