History of the Sanctuary of the Children of the Rainbow
The name "Sanctuary of the Children of the Rainbow", refers to the returning ancestors, those beings from around the world who answer the call home to Kauai. The returning ancestors in some of the universal prophecies are called the Children of the Rainbow because they come in all colors of the rainbow. The vision of the restoration of the garden has been revealed through written and oral histores of cultures around the world. This mission, to recreate heaven on earth, has been remembered by many of the founding members and elders as part of their spiritual awakening.
