Adventure Club Tour of Phoenix Rising

06 Jan

Hello again from the Adventure Club, we did our monthly tour of Phoenix Rising – Garden on the Rising Phoenix.

We had a brilliant turn out today of 12 adventurers, we met up, as usual, at the club tree house on Arcadia North.

Once we were all dressed and ready to go, we began our tour, we boarded the adventure club plane and parachuted down to the island, where we were met by Enigma Namaste, he would be our tour guide today.

If you have not met Enigma please do, he is a very kind and thoughtful person, who has taken time and such care to create this wonderful island for all to share.

Throughout the island there are small arches to touch, and when you touch it, it speaks to you in local chat, this is what the initial greeting was.

Welcome to the Garden of the Rising Phoenix

At the entrance to the parks feel free to strike the gong to announce your arrival.

Throughout The Garden you will find the Self Tour Toriis or arches. When clicked each will read the tour details for that area in Local Chat. Click or touch it again to stop the reading of that tour card.

Ever wonder about the arches in Japanese architecture? A torii (鳥居?, literally~”bird abode,” is a traditional Japanese gate most commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine, The torii symbolically marks the transition from the profane to the sacred

Each Mediation Area has a single focal point to guide the meditation. Focal Points may include visual, audio, motion or wisdom quotes. Many focal points of the Garden are designed to be enjoyed in mouse view or alt-click to cam in close in order to help keep distractions to a minimum.

The music of the Garden can be changed at any time by “touching” the gramophone located at the Beach Cuddle Gazebo in the southwest area of the Garden. Visitors can change the station from anywhere in the garden proper.

The Garden of the Rising Phoenix is built as a living, evolving place to relax, meditate or bring your friends to chat, explore or even to dance

It is my hope that you will enjoy The Garden of the Rising Phoenix often and bring your friends to explore.

As you wander about the island I advise you to enable music as it adds to the ambiance of the island, it was very much like the music you hear when getting a massage, I felt like I was being massaged throughout the whole tour.  The Island to me anyway is full of peace and relaxing energy, a fabulous place to go if you want to be alone with your thoughts or to meditate.

Unfortunately with so many people on the tour this time, I am unable to give a full exacting report of the island, I do know that I enjoyed it, as did my fellow club members, I will definitely return one day and wander around the island alone so I can fully absorbed all that is there.  So I will end this with Enigma’s own words about his garden.

Namaste _/\_ Welcome to the Garden of the Rising Phoenix.
It is my hope that you will find the Mediation Gardens to be a peaceful place to relax and bring your friends.

Below are pictures from our wonderful tour….thank you very much Enigma for your wonderful tour, you were a great host.
