Around 12,000 years ago, as the ice age was coming to a close, a cosmic landscape was born. Large torrents of water were released from the melting ice, draining into what is now the Niagara River. The water plunged over the edge of the Niagara Escarpment and began carving away bedrock bringing to life the almighty Niagara Falls.
Today the falls straddle the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and the state of New York. Native Americans living in the Niagara region were the first to behold the power of Niagara Falls. The mythologies and legends passed down by the ancients portrayed this area as both sacred and in many instances otherworldly. The Thunderbird ruled the upper worlds, while the horned serpent slithered through the underworld. The opposing entities occasionally coming into conflict on the earthly realm in a battle for cosmic balance. Rainbows, clouds, gateways and portals were transportation devices used by the cosmic duo, connecting to both otherworldly dimensions & realms of life, death, & even rebirth.

“The combinational experience we get from visiting both the ancient and modern sacred sites in the same day is something akin to a time-machine, we’re able to look to the past, while feeling in the present, and sometimes even glimpsing the future. This is a true “Gateway” experience!!!”
