The Activation of the Sixth Gate of the 11:11

One Earth - One Being

The 6th Gate Activation will take place on May 29th, 2004.

The Master Cylinder will be located on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland.

The Master Cylinder is always the key point for the 11:11 Activations.

Here are some commonly asked questions about participating in an 11:11 Master Cylinder:

Is it necessary to have participated in a previous 11:11 Gate Activation to come to a Master Cylinder?

It doesn't matter if you've been part of any other 11:11 Gate Activation or attended Solara's workshops or even read her books. What does matter is if you feel called to participate in the current Gate Activation. Each 11:11 Gate takes place on a different level with a specific keynote, resonance and purpose. Some people have made the commitment to participate in every Master Cylinder; others are drawn to only one or two.

QUESTION: What type of people participate?

Master Cylinders draw an interesting assortment of people. About half the people have participated in one or more of the previous Gate Activations. For the others, this is their first 11:11 Master Cylinder experience. Usually, 20 or more countries are represented. The age range is from about 13 - 85. Occupations include almost anything: artists, musicians, doctors, truck drivers, diplomats, strippers, lawyers, healers, soldiers, teachers, bartenders, business people, farmers, construction workers, students and writers. Always, the 11:11 Master Cylinders call forth some special beings, including highly evolved hermits who never go to any kind of workshop and spiritual teachers who teach their own. And usually, there are a few utterly unique beings thrown into the mix. It's always a very loving and interesting group of people.

Most of us begin the week as strangers, but by the time we depart, everyone has become totally endearing and an integral part of our One Being.

QUESTION: Why do the preparations take a week?

Actually, we have only six days of preparations before the 6th Gate Activation in Ireland. This is not much time to take a group of strangers and turn us into a strong, vital One Being. During the 6th Gate Activation or before, there will be times when we go off the map of the known. When this happens, it's time for our One Being to leap into action. This is why our main focus is on quickening our One Being. The day after the Gate Activation is also important as it's a time for us to share and integrate our experiences, bask in the Love of our One Heart and have a joyous celebration.

QUESTION: I can't come for the entire week; can I arrive a few days late?

It is essential to participate for the entire time frame, from May 22 - 30. Every time we have made an exception to this in the past, it has not served our group dynamics. The first few days are the most important, especially if this is your first Master Cylinder. Many basics are covered as we get to know one another and build the foundation of our Master Cylinder Group.

QUESTION: What do you do during the preparations? Do you have a schedule of activities?

We usually have three sessions per day, but have never had a set schedule of activities. It's all about surfing the energies and going with the flow of what is needed and appropriate. We currently have ten 11:11 Sacred Dances and many of them will be practiced during the week. There is also a new 6th Gate Dance which will be birthed. With the combination of Solara's surfing abilities and Omashar's music, the sessions are never dull. And most of what we do will be experiential, which means that you will feel a direct infusion of the Greater Reality into the cells of your being. Sometimes, the energies can be quite intense or profoundly deep and subtle or hysterically funny. A powerful Love energy is strongly felt. Challenges arise and we are given numerous opportunities to bring forth our greatness. Breakthroughs abound....

Again, the focus is on forming a strong One Being who is ready for anything. We never know exactly what we'll be doing during the Gate Activation, so we try to learn as much as we can during our preparations so we can pull out whatever is needed.

QUESTION: Why does it cost money to attend?

Each 11:11 Gate Activation takes many months of preparation. The location must be visited several months ahead of time and the proper Activation Site found. Hotels and conference rooms must be booked. Sound systems and generators are rented; transportation is chartered. Pages of information are written, sent forth and put on this website. Musicians are hired and all expenses are paid for the staff. 11:11 Master Cylinders operate on a very tiny profit margin; it takes fifty paying people before we begin to break even on the basic expenses and much more than that before there is any financial compensation for the time spent and work done. There is an immense amount of work involved in organizing an 11:11 Gate Activation and in the preparation of the Master Cylinder and on a vaster scale, preparing the planet for the energies of the new Gate.

QUESTION: Are discounts or scholarships available?

We will have a cheaper Land Package available for those who live nearby which doesn't include rooms at the hotel. It will probably be a bit cold for camping, but if you really need to find cheaper accomodation, you could look elsewhere in Dingle. However, our special Group Rates at the Dingle Skellig are excellent and they include breakfast. It's always preferable to stay at the hotel with the rest of our Master Cylinder Group as much bonding and sharing of experiences goes on into the wee hours of the night.

QUESTION: What's to be expected during a Gate Activation?

Expect the Unexpected! Each 11:11 Gate Activation Master Cylinder has been totally different. Usually, the Activation itself is easy, although there can be moments of tremendous challenges. We often go off the map into totally new territory. Again, there is no set schedule. Whatever we do just flows into position. Expect to be totally present, alert and real. When you are in a Master Cylinder, you will be experiencing the strongest energies coming into the planet on that day. It's very grounded, but extremely powerful. And you will feel the presence of all the 11:11 Anchor Groups around the world, aligned with us as One Being. There is also a powerful infusion of the Greater Reality. Some people will experience visions and revelations; all will be deeply touched. There is nothing else like it.

QUESTION: Why do we wear white clothing for the Activation?

White symbolizes the purity of our One Being. When we all wear white, there is no distraction from our Oneness.

QUESTION: What are Guardians?

Guardians hold the energy around the perimeter of our Gate Activations. During the week, we will have Guardian training. Throughout the Activation, we will have at least eleven Guardians in position. Guardians serve together as One Being and help maintain the sanctity of our ceremony, making the center of our circle feel protected. We recommend that everyone serve as a Guardian for at least part of the ceremony as it's a profound, amazing experience. No matter what is happening in the center of the Master Cylinder, the Guardians are always larger. And no matter how vast and powerful the incoming 11:11 energies are, the Guardians help bring them in and through their physical bodies, ground the energies into the Earth.

QUESTION: Can I sell crafts or products during the week?

We always have a small sales area which is open a few times a day. This is an excellent opportunity to help pay for your trip.

QUESTION: Can I give private healing sessions at the hotel?

Private sessions are approved on an individual basis. You can request permission in advance. Usually, they are limited to those whose work we are already familiar with.

QUESTION: What shall I bring?

White clothes, colored pareos / sarongs in a variety of colors for the Dance of the Six Elements (some to share with others), jackets, white scarves, etc (it will probably be windy or chilly at our Activation site; it could even pelt with rain!), cameras (It's alright to photograph most parts of the Activation as long as it's not disruptive. When it's not alright, such as the Earth-Star Dance, it will be announced.), bathing suit, musical instruments (if you want to play one), possibly sun block for the Activation, sunhat and comfortable walking shoes.

QUESTION: What not to bring?

The focus of our 11:11 Master Cylinder is to form an invincible One Being, not to advance our personal agendas, so please don't bring your ego. As we have one unified focus, it's really not appropriate to bring separate agendas. And drug use is never appropriate or allowed and could cause your expulsion from the Master Cylinder.

QUESTION: When do I need to register?

The Master Cylinder Registration Form is now on the website.
You can print it out, fill it in and then
email it to us or mail it to:
PO Box 90
Kapaa, HI 96746 USA

IMPORTANT NOTE: Our Master Cylinder Cylinder Registration Form is not set up to be filled out online and emailed to us. But you could paste it into an email or send it as a Microsoft Word or AppleWorks document.

Please register with us as soon as possible to secure your room at the hotel at our special Group Rate as only a limited number of rooms at this price are available. A non-refundable $500 deposit is required upon registration.

QUESTION: Can I just show up in Ireland without registering in advance?

Please don't just show up at the hotel without registering with us beforehand. Much advance planning goes into organizing an 11:11 Master Cylinder, such as obtaining special room rates, making rooming lists and Meal Plans, putting together transport to the Activation. Although it's often good to be spontaneous, it's also a bit disrespectful of all the work which has been done to organize this event to just show up unannounced.

QUESTION: How can I pay? Can I pay by credit card?

Our credit card processor does not allow us to accept credit card payments for conferences or travel. However, you might try to send a credit card payment via Paypal . ( Once you have opened an account there, click on "Send Money" and send the appropriate amount to

You can also send a personal check from a US bank or an International Money Order or Bank Checque in US dollars. Or you can have your bank wire transfer the funds directly to our bank account.

QUESTION: Can I arrive at the hotel earlier than May 22nd or stay later than May 31st?

It's actually a good idea to arrive early, especially if you are traveling a great distance and need to recover from jet lag. Please let us know as soon as possible if you want to arrive early or stay later and we will try to obtain the special group rate for you. However, as the rooms are priced due to double occupancy, if you don't have a roommate, you may have to pay an extra single supplement.

QUESTION: My English is not so good. Will you have translators?

We won't have translators although there are usually people at the Master Cylinder who speak a wide variety of languages. Even then, it's not fair to ask someone to translate for you all the time. Sometimes, a group of people will come together from a country and bring someone to translate for them.

QUESTION: Can I bring my children?

From our past experiences, we have found that children under about age 13 will sometimes get bored during some of the sessions. This causes a distraction to everyone so children under 13 or so are not permitted in the sessions or at the Activation. If you must bring your smaller children, it's important that you arrange for some childcare in Dingle before you come. This may be obtainable through the Dingle Skellig Hotel.

QUESTION: Can I bring a partner or friend with me who won't be participating?

It's definitely preferable that everyone who comes is participating in the Master Cylinder, but sometimes it's necessary to bring someone who won't be attending. If this is your partner, it's highly recommended that they participate. Otherwise, you are going to be having some incredible experiences which they won't be sharing with you and sometimes this creates a gap of understanding.

QUESTION: Will there be a meal plan?

Breakfast is included with the room. We will have a Dinner Plan which will be a simple vegetarian dinner. Lunch is not included. The Dingle Skellig has a restaurant, but is about 10 minutes walk from the town of Dingle. On the evening of May 30, we are going to have a grand, celebratory dinner banquet at the hotel which is included in the registration price.

QUESTION: What's the difference between being in an 11:11 Anchor Group & participating in the Master Cylinder?

11:11 Anchor Groups are a very important part of the Activation of an 11:11 Gate. They form the outposts of our One Being. You can see them as tent pegs helping to anchor the incoming 11:11 energies into the far corners of our planet. However, the energies that they are anchoring are the energies which are sent forth to them from the 11:11 Master Cylinder at the center of the Activation.

Also, 11:11 Anchor Groups vary widely in resonance due to the various people organizing them, most of whom have never participated in a Master Cylinder. This is why we always urge the Anchor Groups to pool their resources and send one representative to the Master Cylinder.

At the Master Cylinder, you are at the ground zero of the 11:11 Activation. This is the key point where the new 11:11 energies are first entering the planet. You are with a dedicated group of people who have come together from many countries to form One Being. And you have been prepared for this and taught the dances by Solara herself. Being part of a Master Cylinder is the most powerful immersion into the 11:11 energies possible and the experience is really not to be missed!

QUESTION: How can I prepare myself for coming to the Master Cylinder?

The cleaner we are when we arrive, the less clearing work we will have to do at our Master Cylinder preparations. Locate, heal and transform any emotional residue, fears, doubts, self-worth issues, old issues and anything else you can find.

You might find it helpful to read the experiences from the Master Cylinders of previous 11:11 Gates. You will find these listed in the 6th Gate Ndex which also lists the reports from the Anchor Groups of previous Activations.

Also highly recommended are Solara's Monthly Surf Reports which are available by subscription. They are all about aligning ourselves with the prevailing 11:11 energies and are amazingly accurate and helpful. Plus, subscribing helps support Solara's work.

You could also read Solara's book How To Live Large on a Small Planet to become familar with some of the concepts and terminology.
