2018 Seasonal Community Crew Information

Seasonal Community Crew Information

You cannot pass the barrier into the 5th dimension unless you have an open mind, loving heart and pure intent. This is also the prerequisite for contact with the Spiritually and Technologically advanced Off Worlders, Ascended Masters and those advanced beings within the Inner Earth.

What if you become love, joy, find total acceptance and appreciation within? What would happen to seeking, leaking your energy like a battery, how self empowering would that be – to go within and find yourself? The true self – not the social programmed self.  You would be free, you will look around you and ask do I really need all this stuff?

Do I want to surround myself with what now feel to be zombies? Do I really want to be part of this herd and is this herd sustainable? Am I frequency specific to my surroundings or do I need to make a change? Am I being supported and fed spiritually?

Then, sadly, most will wake up in the morning, go to their cubicles and fall right back into the herd of zombie consumers.

Yet some will not…..

Those are the ones we are looking for.

Intro || ECETI Mission
Thank you for your interest in being a seasonal Community Crew Member at ECETI!

We are continually expanding upon this program launched last year and in 2018 we are again opening up an invitation to our community to express your interest in rolling up your shirt sleeves, getting your hands dirty and seeing what it takes to keep ECETI operational and in service to our mission.

The mission of ECETI is to provide a sanctuary of higher learning where individuals experience Enlightened Contact with Extraterrestrial Intelligence and connect with the Divine within: by accepting Personal Responsibility, daily practice of your Self Mastery, raising your frequency, and reclaiming your Spiritual Empowerment.

What does being a Seasonal Community Crew Member mean?

ECETI is a bridge between current 3D and the new 5D reality we are creating by raising our frequencies.  In this regard, we differentiate between those community members who wish to volunteer in exchange for a workshop or event (see Work/Trade Self Mastery Workshop for an example) and those who wish to stay longer at ECETI in the role of a short term or seasonal Community Crew Member.

Being a Community Crew Member means that you are part of the core unit that keeps the chickens fed, the bathrooms and guest rooms clean, our Guests registered and feeling welcomed, our facilities in repair, the operational logistics in order, our sound system working, our YouTube channel updated, the gardens weeded and watered, the goats milked,  the garbage taken to the dump, SkyWatch staffed, our Crew fed and much more.

Our Crew Members understand they are part of a Community and therefore are willing to work cohesively to get what needs to get done completed.  Crew are not defined or limited by their primary role, rather are willing and happy to support fellow Crew Members when needed.  Our Crew Members are not “clock watchers” – we understand the importance of ensuring our tasks are completed while creating balance with time to rest and reflect.  Most importantly we understand that every breath, interaction and task is part of our initiation and growth.

Community Crew Members are the life blood of the ranch and in return receive the benefits of experiencing living on the vortex and expanding in Self Mastery.

Seasonal Community Crew Energy Exchange

ECETI hosts workshops and events all season long and there are opportunities for you to attend some of the events if you are interested.  Some presenters waive their workshop registration fee for ECETI Crew, others provide discounted options.  All of James’ workshops and the ECETI Conference are available to Crew at no charge if their work is complete.

We offer weekly and monthly Crew social gatherings and events. Most importantly, your entire experience at the StarGate of ECETI is a powerful initiation in Spiritual Enlightenment and expanding your Self Mastery.  Think of it as a daily Mastery Workshop taking place the entire time you are part of the Crew.

Accommodations are tents at the moment, but we are hoping to get cabins up this season –  having your own tent is a plus.  You may also stay in your van or bring an RV or trailer.  Please note we have dry camping only (no electrical hookups).

We have full bathrooms and showers available, laundry for your use, and all meals provided be you vegetarian or omnivore. The water here comes from glacial melt water far underground, you won’t find better tasting water.

Our main seasonal crew is usually around 10 to 12 men and women.  To be clear, these roles are energy exchange positions, there is no financial remuneration.  You are responsible for your cell phone bill, your medical expenses and your miscellaneous expenses.

Seasonal Community Crew Dates for 2018

In 2018 we have three waves of Community Crew Member opportunities:
Wave #1 April 5th – July 15th (includes annual conference)
Wave #2 June 5th – September 17th (includes annual conference)
Wave #3 August 2nd – November 20th (includes SoulTech conference)

There are also potential opportunities to be a Community Crew Member for the entire season April 5th – November 20th based on mutually agreed upon performance.

Important things to know

ECETI is a spiritual sanctuary.  We have a strict no alcohol, no drug, no marijuana, no medicinal, no edible policy.  There is a zero tolerance policy in effect.

ECETI Crew need to be non-smoking/non-vaping

Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate your pets

You provide your own tent and bedding.  ECETI provides an interactive learning experience and your meals.  These are energy exchange roles, there is no financial remuneration.  You are responsible for your personal expenses.

As  ECETI is a StarGate the vortex will assist you in raising your frequency, which means your “wounds” will come up.  Our Council is here to support you AND you need to be willing to work your Self Mastery and own your stuff.
