Camphill soltane foundation

  • We are already gearing up for the Wine Event on April 13th!  This is Soltane’s major fundraiser for the year and needs lots of volunteer help from the community.  It’s never too soon to let the Foundation staff know that you are able and planning to be there, or can help out behind the scenes in March and April before the event.  Please contact Rachel Bowden if you’re interested!

  • If anyone knows of someone who might be interested in attending the Wine Event, please contact Sue Moore.  We’d love to mail them a personal invite.

  • We are also looking for silent auction donations for this event.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in donating, please let Sue Moore know as well.  We are always interested in gift baskets, gift cards, artwork, tickets for unique experiences and sporting events.  

  • Our Wine & Fine Dining attendees clammer for more Soltane/Parzival artwork each year. We can never have too much! Calling all artists: Please consider donating one of your paintings or some of your pottery and help us raise money for our community. If interested, please contact Rachel Bowden. Thank you!


soltane association


“There is a knighthood of the 20th century whose members do not ride through the darkness of physical forests as of old, but through forests of darkened minds. They are armed with a spiritual armor and an inner sun makes them radiant. Out of them shines healing - healing that flows from a knowing of the Image of the Human Being as a spiritual being. They must create inner order, inner justice, peace and conviction - in the darkness of our time.” Karl Koenig, founder of Camphill
