are some commonly asked questions about participating in an 11:11 Master
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.
type of people participate?
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.
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.
do the preparations take a week?
we have only six days of preparations before the 7th Gate Activation
in India. This is not much time to take a group of strangers and turn
us into a strong, vital One Being. During the 7th 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.
can't come for the entire week; can I arrive a few days late?
is essential to participate for the entire time frame, from October
23rd - November 2nd. 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 vitally 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.
do you do during the preparations? Do you have a schedule of activities?
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. With
the combination of Solara's surfing abilities, Omashar's music and the
eclectic mix of people from many countries in our One Being, 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....
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.
does it cost money to attend?
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.
discounts or scholarships available?
will have a cheaper Hotel Package available for those who choose to
stay in cheaper accomodation. 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. And
for the first time, we are accepting donations to a 7th Gate Scholarship
to be expected during a Gate Activation?
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.
do we wear white clothing for the Activation?
symbolizes the purity of our One Being. When we all wear white, there
is no distraction from our Oneness.
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.
I sell crafts or products during the week?
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.
I give private healing sessions at the hotel?
sessions are approved on an individual basis. You can request permission
in advance. Usually, they are limited to those whose work we are already
shall I bring?
clothes for the 7th Gate Activation Ceremony, colored pareos / sarongs
in a variety of colors for the Dance of the Elements (bring some
extras to share with others), 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),
sun block, mosquito repellent, sunhat, rain gear and comfortable walking
shoes. Bring something warm to put on in the evenings, especially if
you are coming to Mt Abu and Dharamsala. And since India has such great
shopping, I would bring as little as possible.
not to bring?
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.
do I need to register?
Master Cylinder Registration
Form is on the website.
You can print it out, fill it in and then email
it to us or mail it to:

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. And October is High Season in this part of India.
A non-refundable $500 deposit is required upon registration. Payment
in full is due before September 11th.
I just show up in India without registering in advance?
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.
can I pay? Can I pay by credit card?
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 .
(www.paypal.com) Once you have opened an account there, click on "Send

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
I arrive at the hotel earlier than October 23rd or stay later than November
hotel is totally booked before our arrival and after our departure on
the morning of November 2nd. However, we are in the process of getting
some rooms in Udaipur at other hotels for those arriving early. We are
also obtaining some special rates at hotels in New Delhi and Mumbai
(Bombay) for those needing rooms there before or after the Activation.
We also have two optional trips: Mt Abu on November 2nd and 3rd for
the Council of the One Being. This group will return to Udaipur on November
4th. The second trip is our Dharamsala Tibetan Option from November
English is not so good. Will you have translators?
won't have translators although there are always 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.
I bring my children?
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 India.
I bring a partner or friend with me who won't be participating?
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.
there be a meal plan?
Meal Plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you are staying at
an alternate hotel, you will have your breakfast there.
the difference between being in an 11:11 Anchor Group & participating
in the Master Cylinder?
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.
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 to always send one representative to the Master Cylinder. This will
make your Anchor activites much truer in the future.
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!
can I prepare myself for coming to the Master Cylinder?
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, areas
of resistance and anything else you can find.
might find it helpful to read the experiences from the Master Cylinders
of previous 11:11 Gates. You will find these listed in the 7th
Gate Ndex which also lists the reports from the Anchor Groups of
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
could also read Solara's book How To Live Large on a Small Planet
to become familar with some of the concepts and terminology. And highly
recommended for this time is Solara's "EL AN RA: The Healing of
Orion". It's absolutely turns duality inside out!
