I love being free on 70 acres, though being close to the people and food is my favorite part. I am happy here. Rowena

Ahhhh .... The Magic Land......sigh. We had the good fortune to not only spend a couple of days there but make some small contributions to it’s development. This is a special place where all creatures exist just as they please and we’re created to do.
Stars, mist, warmth, trees, water, all creatures great and small are some of what you’ll experience here. Magical!!!
P.S. If you are in need of someone who is a scholar of listening, look no more, Laura Lynne will be there for you, and she also makes a delicious Belgian waffle.
I am the sacred spring water that trickles between the sheets of ice in the winter, and hides underground when the sun is scorching, and that roars in the spring to roll the rocks.

I raised Baby Squirrel on The Magic Land and now every squirrel I see is Baby Squirrel's baby squirrel.
Only an hour from St.Louis, MO.. and you have found a peaceful retreat, sure to refresh you mentally and physically.
Flying through the tall pine trees and nibbling on the native foliage created a spendor in my wings for all to enjoy. Giant Leopard Moth

My first experience on the Magic Land was around 2012, when I was looking for a plot of secluded land where I could teach wilderness survival skills, including hunting and trapping small game. I have lived in rural Missouri most of my life -hunting, fishing and exploring the wilder places, and after spending one afternoon walking alone around the land I knew this place was different somehow.
There is feeling there that I can only describe as sanctuary, a place of peaceful coexistence with nature, an honoring of all life, from the smallest flower to the free ranging chickens that lay eggs at their convenience and have the opportunity to grow old gracefully.
This is a place where love, healing and personal growth are nurtured. I am forever grateful to Laura Lynne, for following her heart and taking on the enormous responsibility of governing this sacred place, and for fostering an environment where others can learn, heal and grow as I have. Mark Antum
I tip my umbrella so the dew drops create a drinking cup for the tiny insects who live on and in the log where I make my home on The Magic Land. Shwella
When I was little, my Mom would call my name and I would come running with my brothers and sisters. We are free to eat whatever we find here it's super neat! Love, Pinkerton
Each time I have been to The Magic Land it has been a different season. Each time, it has been beautiful, welcoming and full of surprises. One of my most favorite aspects of staying in the treehouse is that you are literally sleeping in a
tree, but, with all of the creature comforts, including a dreamy fireplace with a chair swing hanging right in front of it. It is hard to get me to come out of there once I tuck in. It is perfect for meditation or conversation or even a nap.
There is a hammock for swinging in the loft above the beds. The treehouse is the perfect perch for spirits like me. I have had several amazing retreat experiences on the land. Laura Lynne is a gifted facilitator and coach, and always has the magical ability to appear at just the moment you need her, and to disappear when you are needing solitude.
The animals also have an amazing way of teaching you about yourself as you relate to them, and your totems can be revealed to you, even in just one day.
It is just one hour's drive from St. Louis, but it seems that you are remote and disengaged from the linear world while you are there. The stars are extraordinarily visible, and there are beautiful places to walk, have a fire, climb a tree, and even pitch a tent. All of the buildings have a touch of Laura Lynne's aesthetic and personality, which means that they are beautiful, elegant, and unconventional. Each time I go, it gives me a sense of coming home to myself. Just typing this has me anxious to plan my next visit! All my love! Dianna Lucas
