Anastasia's Kins Domains
Being created all over the world


Anastasia's Morning - Artist Arthur Kip Herring

Since childhood a ball of light has protected her. Supposedly it once prevented a government-sent expedition from taking Anastasia by force from the taiga to Moscow for scientific investigation. It is also said that, when the Gelendgik City (near the Black Sea) administration refused permission for the first Anastasia Conference to be held there, a ball of light paid a visit to the city’s cabinet members. After that, good cooperation between the city and the pilgrims who revere Anastasia was ensured.

Anastasia Series





Cedar Rivers' BLOG

Anastasia is considered to be a surviving member of an ancient Vedic culture, whose powers and knowledge far exceed anything known today. She is the inspiration for the Ringing Cedars Series. According to Megré's account, she was born in 1969, in the Western Siberian taiga
(boreal forests) not far from the city of Surgut on the river Ob.

Her parents died tragically in a forest accident when she was just a baby. She lives in the wilderness—for the most part without
warm clothes, food cultivation or man-made shelter—and survives on fruit, nuts, berries and mushrooms, brought to her
by "wild" animals with which she lives in peaceful harmony.

Self-Sufficient & Productive: It is proposed to establish a large and extended food forest on the land, via effective and highly productive food forest permaculture principles inspired by Australia’s Permaculture institute, leaving a large tract of common land for an undisturbed native forest, common lake and grass recreation area. Through these proven and practical guidelines, maximum water conservation and land productivity will be utilized, creating a maintenance free biosphere and ecosystem that will be highly productive and yet require little upkeep. Renewable energy will be used and low-cost suppliers have been found, providing for cost-effective solar and wind power, or diesel engines running on used vegetable oil. Shared initial costs and high permaculture yields will ensure that initial investment is paid back rapidly.

Having read the Anastasia Series of nine books, it's easy to see her as a Goddess of the Natural World. She claims that imagery is our greatest skill because we create the world that we want with our imagination. As she continues to empower her dream for the future Earth, she utilises the skills of the ultimate human that most have forgotten - yet with intention, practice and expectation we can reclaim these skills for use in understanding who we really are and in co-creating a New Earth.

"Anastasia asserts that, if all people or the majority of them begin consciously to create their Kin's domain, turning them into heavenly oases, then the entire world will be transformed. Natural cataclysms and wars will not occur on earth. When the inner, spiritual world of a person changes, new knowledge and abilities will be opened to him or her. A person may create wonderful worlds analogous to our earthly world on other planets."

"Where is the edge of the Universe? What will I do when I come to it? When I myself fill everything, and have created everything I have conceived?" the first of the primogenitors asks God, and receives this answer: "My son. The Universe itself is a thought, a thought from which was born a dream, which is partially visible as matter. When you approach the edge of all creation, your thought will reveal a new beginning and continuation. From obscurity will arise the new and resplendent birth of you, and it will reflect in itself your soul, your dreams, your whole aspirations. My son, you are infinite, you are eternal, within you are your dreams of creation."

*Anastasia's Dream of FAMILY DOMAINS is a brilliant and viable idea - so simple yet immensely effective. If you are looking for solutions read her references to Kins or Family Domains.

Anastasia and The Family Domain - Dwellings, Gardens, Orchards and Farms

Regular readers of this website will be aware that we at Celtic Gardens in Australia incorporate many of the principles put forward by Anastasia - the Russian woman Vladimir Megre writes about in the Ringing Cedars Series. Anastasia proposes relatively simple, yet entirely feasible solutions to countless family and societal problems that are now endemic throughout the world.

In my travels throughout Australia over the past two decades, I became painfully aware of the large number of properties that are either under-utilised or empty and falling into disrepair. In some instances a large percentage of buildings in some towns lie vacant permanently or for most of the year, and a great deal of productive land is unused and neglected. I believe that with rational and reasonable encouragement and imaginative government legislature, the owners of these properties could put them to better use, perhaps in a philanthropic way.

Properties such as houses and other dwellings, farms, businesses, churches, convents, camps, caravan parks and government buildings such as schools, offices, apartments, railway warehouses and so on. Unused assets owned by banks, churches, investors, local councils, state and federal government resources could be freed up in creative ways.

The relevant governing bodies and owners of these properties may consider freeing them up for habitation and custodianship – perhaps for a very low rent or lease and with the offer to give the properties to those groups and families that establish a proven record of care, preservation and resourcefulness.

One of the basic tenants of Anastasia’s philosophy is that the state gives every willing family a hectare of land on which to create a family domain. Detailed procedures of Anastasia’s principles may be found throughout the series with a draft to the Russian government written in book 8.1 pp 208 - The New Civilisation.

A Law of Russia on Family Communities

Article 1. Basic terms and concepts used in the Law

* Family Domain – a plot of land from 1 to 1.3 hectares in size, granted to age-of-majority Russian citizens for their life-time use, with the right of inheritance, with no tax obligations in respect to the land or its produce;

* Family Community – a centre of population organised on the principles of local self-government, consisting of Family Domains as well as socio-cultural and community facilities;

* Lifetime Use – unconditional ownership and use of a plot of land, free of charge and in perpetuity;

* Living Fence – a hedge consisting of trees and shrubs planted around the perimeter of the Family Domain or a Family Community. "

Anastasia - reclusive Siberian shaman
In 1994 a Siberian elder told the entrepreneur Vladimir Megre a fascinating story about the "ringing cedars" - trees respected from Biblical times for their curative powers and the capacity to re-connect human beings with the Divine. The elder told him where such a ringing cedar was growing in the Siberian backwoods. Vladimir Megre set out on an expedition to find the tree. But his encounter with the elder's granddaughter Anastasia transformed him so deeply that he abandoned his commercial plans and, penniless, went to Moscow to write a book about the spiritual insights she shared with him. What happened next thrilled and inspired millions!



Anastasia on planting seeds “Every seed planted by someone contains within itself a great amount of cosmic information. Its volume is incomparable to anything manmade. Thanks to this information the seed knows exactly, up to milliseconds, the time when it is supposed to return to life. It knows when to sprout, what kinds of juices to extract from the ground, how to use the energy generated by cosmic bodies like the sun, moon and stars. It also knows what specific type of plant to become and what kind of fruit to bear. The various fruits are meant for man's life-support. These fruits can fight and resist any disease of a human physical body very effectively and even more powerfully than the best manmade medications existing now and those which will be in the nearest future. In order to fulfill this job a seed has to know everything it could saturate the fruit with and bring them into proper correlation with the necessary substances for the healing process. It has to know precisely for a certain person concerning his specific sick­nesses in case they have them or there is a pre­disposition towards sickness.

To load this kind of information into a cucumber, tomato or any other kind of seed which is supposed to grow in a certain piece of land it is necessary to act as follows:

Before planting or sowing a dry seed (don't soak it) it should be taken into the mouth and kept not less than nine minutes. Then take it in your hands (in-between your palms), hold it for thirty seconds. While doing it one should stand barefooted on the very plot where the seed is supposed to be planted. After that open your palms, bring your hands close to your mouth, exhale the air out of your lungs right on the seed (or seeds). After that keep it in the open air in the sun for thirty seconds.  Now the seed is ready to be planted, so put it into the ground. Never water it right away after planting! You can water it only three days after planting.

Of course don't forget about the proper time for planting or sowing. The day should be chosen in accordance with the well known moon calendar. Every gardener knows that there are especially preferable days for each kind of crop. It is advisable to plant early without watering when the ground has enough moisture in it. A late planting could be fatal for the seed. Don't destroy around this plant all the weeds when it is developing and growing. It is necessary to leave at least one kind of each weed. You can cut the weeds without pulling them out so you will not disturb the roots of your plant”.

According to Anastasia, this is the only way for a seed to accumulate, file and process the information about a person. In the process of bringing up its fruit the plant will be getting the most out of the required energy from the Cosmos and the Earth specially for that person. You can't remove all the weeds around the plant because they are playing their special role as well. Some of them are pro­tecting the plants from sicknesses. Others are supplying them with additional information. While the plant is growing it is necessary to communicate with it and at least once, approach it when the moon is full and touch it. Anastasia confirmed that the fruits, which had been grown that way from a seed and consumed by the person taking care of it, are capable of healing him/her absolutely from any kind of disease. It decreases to a great extent, the process of ageing, gets rid of pernicious habits and addictions, greatly increasing mental abilities and bringing peace to the soul. This kind of fruit will give the most beneficial effect if consumed within three days after harvesting, not later. All the pro­cedure described above can be done with any kind of crop which you grow on your plot. There is no need to sow or plant the whole bed of cucumbers or tomatoes this way. It is quite sufficient to have only a couple of plants for healing purposes.

Before you plant a sapling it is necessary to crumple the soil in the hole with your fingers and the toes of your bare feet and after that spit into it.

On answering my question, “Why with toes?” Anastasia explained that toxic substances are coming out of a human body through the feet sweating. These are containing the information about an organism which had been sick. The young plant would get this information and process it to the fruit, which would be able to fight the sickness. Anastasia strongly recommended walking on the plot bare footed at least once in a while.

“What kind of crop is it preferable to grow?”, I asked. “It is quite sufficient to grow the variety which the great majority of the gardeners do: raspberry, black currant, gooseberry canes, cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries and any kind of apple tree. It is advisable to have a cherry or sour cherry tree and flowers. The quantity of the crops or the area they occupy does not really matter.

There are compulsory crops without which it is hard to imagine a complete energetic microclimate at a plot. They are: sunflower (at least one), cereals should occupy an area of about 1.5-2 square meters, then rye and wheat. It is absolutely necessary to leave a space not less than 2 square meters for various grasses. This island of motley grass should be only natural. It should not be artificially sown and if you, for some reason have failed to preserve a piece of earth with motley grass in your plot, then it is necessary to bring some turf from a forest. This way you would be able to create a kind of a tiny wild, nature island”.

I asked Anastasia whether it was necessary to plant the compulsory crops if your next-door neighbor had already had those crops at his/ her plot. If right behind your fence there was a motley grass island or even a whole field of it and her answer was, “It is important not only to create a variety of plantings but it is very important the way they were planted and direct communication with them is advisable. Because through it a saturation of information is taking place. I've already told you about one way of planting and it is the main one. The most important thing to do is to saturate the surrounding piece of nature with information about oneself.

Only in that case the healing effect and the life support of your physical body would be much higher than just fruit growing. In "wild nature", as you call it, though it is not "wild" at all, it is just strange and unknown to you. There are a great many plants which are able to heal all kinds of existing diseases. They exist only for this purpose! Man has lost or almost forfeited the ability to recognize and determine them”.

I directed her attention to the fact that we had many specialized pharmacies which are dealing with medicinal herbs. There were doctors, quack-doctors or even witch — doctors who were healing with herbs, but...

“There is only one main doctor and it is your own organism!”, replied Anastasia. “From the very beginning it has been given to man to know exactly what kind of herb to use and when. Anyone was able to do it subconsciously. Nobody else can substitute you as your private doctor. This ability has been given to you by God. I am telling you the way to bring it back. A well organized interrelationship with the plants' organic complex at your plot will heal you. It will take great care of you. The plants will diagnose your condition very precisely on their own and produce the most effective remedy specially destined for you”.


Model for Community

Whitesleet Hill

Whitesleet Hill 25:06:2010 ~ Researchers will make different things of the CircleMakers symbology and I had an aha moment with this one.
I think it's a really good model for a Kins Domain design... for harmonious and enlightened spiritual and community living.
Imagine the central circle as The Hub - Community Centre - Gathering Place - Sacred Space.
The six other main circles represent families, couples or individuals who are kindred or simpatico to the focus and intentions of the tribe.


From Book 7

“You’ve got it.”
“Some sort of phantasmagoria! What is it — you want me, the warden of this facility, to create Paradise oases for my prisoners? And are you certain that this can really work?”
“I’m absolutely convinced it will be a success. As a psychologist I’m convinced. And it’s something I feel in my heart. Judge for yourself, Nikolai Ivanovich: someone serves nine years behind bars, and then walks free. He hasn’t any friends. His friends are back in the prison’s security zone, or in their cells. His family doesn’t want anything to do with him. Neither does society at large. Let’s face it, who’ll give an ex-con a decent job? Most job categories are up to their ears in unemployed professionals, and look how many highly qualified people are standing in queue at employment centres. Our society provides no positions for ex-convicts. There’s only one road ahead for them — back to the old routine. And so they follow it, and they end up back here with you again.”
“Yes, I know the scenario. What’s the point in merely stating the obvious? But tell me, as a psychologist, why did the cons who read these books suddenly changed and go for the idea of getting a piece of land behind a barbed-wire fence?”“Well, you see, they all got a glimpse of eternity on the horizon. Like, people believe you’re still alive, even in a prison cell. Whereas in fact you’re not. You’re dead. Because there’s nothing left for you on life’s horizon.”
“What were you saying about ‘a glimpse of eternity’?”
“I told you, it’s hard for me to explain it right off. It’s all in the books…”

As you know - more than anyone - the times have changed so radically that in many cases the old, traditional ways of farming are becoming no longer viable.

Do you want exciting change? Would you consider embracing Anastasia's ideas on farming, gardening and community building. Could YOUR farm become such a community?

“The most important thing is that even today everyone can build a home. Every one can feel God with their soul and live in Paradise. One single moment is what separates Paradise from people living on the Earth today. Each one possesses conscious awareness within. When dogmas do not interfere with this awareness, what can come to pass . . . .within themselves they will define the essence of the Earth, and become aware of their destined purpose. . . . . The thought of each one of them will be brought into contact with the thought of God. The gates of Paradise will open.”

Anastasia and the Ringing Cedars Series

The story began in 1994 on the bank of the River Ob amidst the endless expanses of the Siberian taiga. The well-known Siberian entrepreneur Vladimir Megre met with two elderly gentlemen who told him about the amazing properties of the Siberian cedar (also known in the West as the Siberian pine). At first he didn't pay much attention to what they told him, but as he continued to reflect on it, Vladimir began to discover, in the historical and scientific literature he examined, more and more evidence supporting their words. Finally he decided to organize an expedition with a fleet of river steamers. The expedition was ostensibly for commercial purposes, but in actual fact his overriding motivation was to find the elders again and learn more about the secrets of the cedar.

This incredible series of books has already been a massive seller in Russia and we interviewed the publisher of the English translations, Leonid Sharashkin, at the Science and Consciousness Conference in Santa Fe, where everyone was spell bound by the information.

Many people ask if Anastasia is "real". Leonid answers simply, that it doesn't really matter whether there is a human being called Anastasia somewhere in the Siberian Taiga, as long as the information connects with the part of all of us that is all-knowing. Once you read the books, you will "know".

July 24 World Earth Day

The Altai Mountains have been a place of pilgrimage for millennia. Shamanism is believed to have started in these "Golden Mountains," fostered by the powerful energy vortices here, and the indigenous Altai people who will host our visit are the heirs and keepers of this magical power. A million Russian tourists visit Altai each summer, to soak up the healing energy.
One of the central themes in the books is the creation of Kin’s Domains (eco-villages). In Russia there are over 150+ Kin’s Domains with over 100 families living in each one. In the rest of the world we have not heard of any other Kin’s Domains being created. Of course this will all change quickly as more and more people read and understand the books and her vision.

The Future of the World -- Anastasia's Dream
Anastasia's advice, to those who can do so, is to return to Nature, build a family farm, and live there in happiness. The tools she suggests for bringing this into reality are thoughts and images of a better and more harmonious life. She feels that the traveling bards and storytellers will carry these ideas throughout the Russias. She aims at no less than changing civilization as we know it.

When Anastasia wants to accomplish something, she says, she dreams of it in much detail and with a joy in her heart. Anastasia is dreaming a plan to change the Earth. According to her plan, everything is going to start in Russia (she mentioned Ukraine and White Russia as well). Every family will be able to obtain from the state a one-hectare piece of land which they will own, but without the right to sell it. The family will make a family estate there for the generations to come. Everything is going to be on that one hectare -- a building, one-quarter to three-quarters of a hectare of forest, a pond, fields, and a fence made by trees and bushes.

Since according to Anastasia it's possible to raise plenty of agricultural products without using chemical fertilizers, the family will be able to feed itself and even sell the ecologically pure produce at market. And they will have plenty of time to think about the really important things (Anastasia calculates that an average person in Russia spends three hours daily watching television, but only 15-20 minutes per life thinking of God). Anastasia says that if you sow things properly, the plants will regenerate the soil by themselves, just as they do in the wild and everywhere else where man is behaving himself.


From Kevin Rudd's Sorry Speech to the Stolen Generations of Australia.. "I asked Nanna Fejo what she would have me say today about her story. She thought for a few moments then said that what I should say today was that all mothers are important. And she added: Families - keeping them together is very important. It's a good thing that you are surrounded by love and that love is passed down the generations. That's what gives you happiness."
