Where

In the hearth of the Catskill Mountain, Menla is located atop the world’s most ancient meteor impact crater. This hidden valley is a pristine eco-system, an oasis of remarkable spiritual energy residing on land long held sacred to local Native Americans for its extraordinary energy. The local Native American peoples, including the Esopus and Mahicans, regarded this valley and region, with its enormous first-growth hemlock trees, as especially sacred, a place of the spirits. They never settled here and only used the valley for ceremonial purposes.

Menla is the source of the Pantherkill Stream, with numerous springs feeding it throughout our property. The main spring has long been held as an especially sacred spring, though we are not certain exactly why. What is clear is that Panther Mountain, which looks down upon the Menla valley, is a special mountain, with its circular reverse-crater shape, surrounded on all sides by flowing streams – a vortex of ley lines spanning a much larger geographic pattern characterized by natives as a Great Serpent formation.
