Ringing Cedars readers meeting

was held at Wahroonga, Sydney North, 21 July 2017


Sydney, Australia

Dear friends!

On July 21, 2017, in Sydney, Australia, we held the first readers’ conference of the “Ringing Cedars of Russia” series by Vladimir Nikolaevich Megre.

It was an unusually warm and sunny winter’s day, and there was a great feeling of inspiration and love. Eighteen readers were in attendance, mostly from Australia. Also present were readers born in Poland, Ukraine, Hungary and Austria.

Readers discuss plans for a family homestead settlement.

The first meeting was held at Wahroonga Park, Ku-ring-gai, New South Wales.

Our like-minded company enjoyed getting to know one another, sharing our experience of reading the books of Vladimir Megre, and discussing our future plans — most importantly, the creation of our own Family Homesteads here in Australia!

It was decided to create a political party, the “Family Party”, whose constitution is based on the ideas of Anastasia and the “Ringing Cedars of Russia”. The draft charter, subject to future discussions, is as follows:


​​1. to restore the Rites of Love to our society which will help each person find their soul mate, and preserve love in our families forever.

2. ​to ensure the provision of a plot of land, at least one hectare, to any citizen wishing to create their own Family Homestead. The plot cannot be bought or sold, and can be passed on by inheritance. The land and its produce are not subject to taxation. The plot cannot be subdivided, and a common lane way of at least 3m surrounds each plot.

​3. to require each elected Member of the Parliaments of New South Wales and Australia to create a new Family Homestead Settlement on an area no less than 200 hectares in size.

In the calm surrounds of Kur-ring-gai, readers discussed collaboration with other movements, legislation about family homestead settlements, and strengthening the political network of readers in Australia.

A smaller group of readers also discussed the expeditious creation of a Family Homestead Settlement in New South Wales. We reported on available funds for the initial purchase of land, discussed favourable locations and natural characteristics, and showed beautiful drawings of our future Family Homestead Settlement, which warmed the heart of everyone present!

Future meetings will determine our precise budget, but already a substantial settlement is possible! After buying suitable land, we will survey it and prepare official documents outlining the nature of our settlement. We will then divide the land into hectares for purchase or free allocation to those wishing to create their own Family Homesteads.

In the future, we will perfect our own pieces of the dwelling land and contribute to a positive natural revival of Australian society, leading to a new era of spiritual awareness, ecological cleanliness, tourism and world leadership, together with other Family Homestead creators in Russia and around the world!

We also discussed various social movements, and highlighted the unique quality of the “Ringing Cedars”, “Anastasia” and “Family Homestead” movement in its ability to overcome dark forces and successfully precipitate a good new civilization on Earth.

Before the sun went down, we enjoyed vegetarian food, warm tea, bard songs and traditional dances in the park. ​The children (and others!) enjoyed climbing trees. ​Five hours passed very quickly, and we all wished for another longer meeting soon!

Readers presented plans for proposed settlements, discussed favorable locations, and addressed the avenues for progress using current planning laws.

An example of creating Family Homesteads in an existing rural settlement

Over 10 years, we made an abandoned village into an attractive residence for those who want to create their Family Homesteads. We organized interaction between people in our collective, and the entrepreneurs who are creating their Family Homesteads in the settlement organized means of financing the projects.

Take care of our image

Family Homestead and “eco-settlement” are two totally different images which are not comparable with one another. Maybe we should treat more carefully this energy which has raised us to such a height and continues to raise us?

Briefing report on Family Homestead Settlements

This report introduces the concept of the family homestead, a one hectare allotment consisting of a dwelling, water source, mixed garden and forested area. Homesteads are small enough to tend by hand, large enough to feed a family, and are arranged together in settlements of 200 or more. The possibilities and limitations of family homesteads are discussed within the Australian context.

Family Party candidate achieved second place in Saratov regional elections

“Such a powerful unity was demonstrated by the Family Party!” Kopenkina wrote in a post after the results were published. “For each who embodied these elections together with me – a deep bow and a kiss for everyone, I felt such powerful support and only that inspired me. The Family Party has loudly announced itself! We are strength! We will only move forward! We will bring your projects to life! We will be listened to!”

Family homesteads and settlements consisting of them as a promising socio-economic form (scientific report)

The main thing is that the alternative social environment created within family homesteads and their settlements can be built into the structure of modern society, interact with it, and enrich it with its practice. Family homesteads are one of the possible channels for the gradual, voluntary, non-violent transformation of existing social relations and the existing mode of production, opening up the prospect of a more attractive life for many members of society. And this is achieved not at the expense of renouncing the achievements of civilization, but, on the contrary, by using them to effectively address our pressing problems.
