The Eleventh Gate Activation of the 11:11




Here are some commonly asked questions about participating in an 11:11 Master Cylinder:


Is it necessary to have participated in a previous 11:11 Gate Activation to come to the Eleventh Gate Master Cylinder?

It doesn't matter if you've been to any previous 11:11 Master Cylinder, attended any 11:11 workshops or even read Solara's books. What does matter is if you feel deeply called to participate in the Eleventh Gate Activation. Each 11:11 Gate takes place on a entirely different level with a specific keynote, resonance and purpose. Some people have made the commitment to participate in every Master Cylinder; others are drawn to only one or two.

QUESTION: What type of people participate?

Master Cylinders attract an interesting assortment of people. About half the group have participated in one or more of the previous 11:11 Gate Activations. For others, this is their first 11:11 Master Cylinder experience. Usually, 35 - 40 countries are represented. The age range can be from 13 - 80. Occupations include almost anything: artists, musicians, doctors, truck drivers, diplomats, lawyers, healers, soldiers, teachers, bartenders, business executives, farmers, construction workers, students, judges and writers. It's always a very loving and eclectic group of people. Many of us begin the week as strangers, but by the time we depart, we have become lifelong friends. Everyone is an integral part of our One Being.

QUESTION: My English is not so good. Will you have translators?

Everything will be translated into Spanish and Russian. If there are enough people who need a translator, usually there are people willing to translate within our Master Cylinder Group. There may be a translation surcharge to help pay your translator. If you don't speak much English, it would greatly serve you to learn as much as possible before Eleventh Gate.

QUESTION: Can I bring my children?

11:11 Activations require a strongly focused Master Cylinder Group. Because of this, we feel that only children who are old enough to fully participate should be there. You can bring a younger child with you as long as you provide a full time caregiver for them.

QUESTION: Can I bring a partner or friend with me who won't be participating?

No. We have a limited number of rooms at our hotel and must save them for the participants. It's always preferable if your partner participates, otherwise, you will have some incredibly deep experiences which they won't be sharing with you; sometimes this creates a gap.

QUESTION: When do I need to register?

As soon as possible. The Eleventh Gate Master Cylinder is going to fill up quickly. Since space is limited, some people from countries from which we receive lots of registrations, might be put on a temporary waiting list so we can achieve a balance of countries and sexes.

Here's a link to the Master Cylinder Registration Form . Please email us a recent color photograph of yourself to


QUESTION: What do people wear at a Master Cylinder?

Most people wear colorful, comfortable clothes. Although it will be summer in Peru, it is also the rainy season, so bring some warm clothes, especially for at night and for the rainy days.

QUESTION: What's the difference between being in an 11:11 Anchor Group & participating in the Master Cylinder?

11:11 Anchor Groups are a very important part of an 11:11 Activation. They form the outposts of our One Being and help anchor the incoming 11:11 energies into the far corners of our planet. However, the energies that they are anchoring are the energies which are sent forth to them from the 11:11 Master Cylinder at the center of the Activation.

Also, 11:11 Anchor Groups vary widely in resonance due to the various people organizing them, most of whom have never participated in a Master Cylinder. This is why we always urge Anchor Groups to pool their resources and send one representative to the Master Cylinder. This will make their Anchor activities much truer.

At the Master Cylinder, you are at the centerpoint of the 11:11 Activation. This is the key point where the new 11:11 energies first enter the planet. You are with a dedicated group of people who have come together from many countries to form One Being. You get to experience a full week of preparations for the Activation Ceremony by the people who most understand the 11:11 energies, including Solara. Being part of a Master Cylinder is the most powerful immersion into the 11:11 energies possible and the experience is quite unlike anything else!



QUESTION: How can I prepare myself for coming to the Master Cylinder?

Since Eleventh Gate is when we emerge as JEWELS IN THE CROWN, the more ready we are when we arrive, the less clearing work we will have to do during the Master Cylinder preparations. Since anything that is untrue within us will come up to be released, it's important that we locate, heal and release any emotional or mental residue, fears, doubts, self-worth issues, old issues, areas of resistance, broken hearts, limited beliefs and anything else you can find. Be especially aware of anything within you that has passed its expiration date. This includes old vows, expired contracts with soul groups and individuals, old roles, outdated spiritual practices and duality-based beliefs. Let go of as much as you can so you can start fresh at the Master Cylinder.

Also highly recommended are Solara's Monthly Surf Reports which are available by subscription in English, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. They contain lots of useful information to align ourselves with the prevailing 11:11 energies and are amazingly accurate and helpful. You can also read Solara's 2012 Surf Report: Birthing Authenticity, as well as some of this year's free Surf Reports by clicking on the SURF REPORTS tab on the home page of

Please read Solara's book The Star-Borne: A Remembrance for the Awakened to become familiar with some of the 11:11 concepts and terminology. This book has been completely rewritten and is now available as an eBook on

QUESTION: Why do the Master Cylinder preparations and activities take a week?

A week is not much time to take a group of virtual strangers from many different countries and levels of awareness and turn us into a strong, vital One Being. During the Eleventh Gate Activation Preparations or the Ceremony itself, there may be several times when we go off the Map of the Known. When this happens, it's time for our One Being to leap into action. This is why our focus is on quickening our One Being and emerging as True Ones. The day after the Activation Ceremony is also important for sharing and integrating our experiences, and basking in PURE HEART LOVE while we have a joyous celebration.

QUESTION: I can't come for the entire week; can I arrive a few days late?

It is essential to participate for the entire time frame, from November 14 - 23. Each time we have made an exception to this in the past, it has not served our group dynamic. The first few days are the most vitally important, especially if this is your first Master Cylinder. Many basics are covered, as we get to know one another and build the foundation of our Master Cylinder Group. Besides, you will not want to miss one moment of this amazing experience!

We always recommend arriving a few days prior to the arrival day of November 14th in order to rest from your journey, adjust to the altitude and align yourself with the energies of the Sacred Valley. This will help you to begin the first day of preparations with strong, fresh energy.

QUESTION: What do we do during the preparations? Is there a schedule of activities?

We usually have three sessions per day, but never have a set schedule of activities. We surf the energies and go with the flow of what is most needed, . We currently have ten 11:11 Sacred Dances and most of them will be practiced during the week; new ones could be created. With the combination of Solara's surfing abilities, Omashar's music, the 11:11 Facilitators and the eclectic mix of people from many countries in our One Being, the sessions are never dull.

Most of what we do is experiential, which means that you will feel a direct infusion of the Ultra Greater Reality and PURE HEART LOVE into the cells of your being. The energies can be quite intense or profoundly deep and subtle or wildly funny. A powerful energy of LOVE and ONENESS is strongly felt. Challenges sometimes arise as untrue elements within us come up to be released and old layers dissolve. Throughout the Master Cylinder we are given numerous opportunities to bring forth our true greatness. Breakthroughs abound....

Again, the focus is on forming a strong One Being who is ready for anything and fully emerging as True Ones. We never know exactly what we'll be doing during the Gate Activation itself, so we try to learn as much as we can during our preparations so we can pull out whatever is needed.

We will also have some free time each day to rest or explore the beautiful Sacred Valley.

QUESTION: Can I sell crafts or products during the week?

We always have a small sales area which is open a few times a day. You can bring crafts or products you create or special artesania items from your country. This is an excellent opportunity to help pay for your trip. Please let us know in advance what you would like to bring. There is a 15% commission on all sales to help cover our expenses.

QUESTION: Can I give private sessions or healings at the hotel?

Private sessions and healings are approved on an individual basis and permission must be requested in advance. Usually, permission is given only to those whose work we are already familiar with. Otherwise, healings and private sessions are not allowed so we can keep a unified focus.

QUESTION: What shall I bring?

The Sacred Valley has a high altitude. Although this is "summer", it is also the rainy season. It could be warm during the day, but it will be cool at night and when it rains. Bring layers of clothing for the changing weather, white clothes for the Activation, sun block, rain clothes, camera, and a hat. You might also want to bring a few small gifts from your country to give to beloved new friends and favorite hotel staff.

Please feel free to bring your laptop computer or iPad if you have one, as our hotel provides free wireless internet connection throughout the hotel.

It's a good idea to bring some special, comfortable clothes that you make you feel beautiful to wear for the daily sessions. Your energy will feel much more calibrated than if you wear ordinary street clothes such as jeans and T shirts. Our Master Cylinder group is usually nicely dressed in a colorful array of garments from around the world.

The Sacred Valley is well known for its brilliant shopping, especially in the markets of Chinchero, Pisac and Ollantaytambo. So don't bring too much with you. You can buy ponchos, weavings, hats, gloves, socks, sweaters and much more once you get here. (You could also plan on buying things to take back home with you, not just as gifts, but to sell. This is a great way to pay for your trip and support the artesans of Peru!)

QUESTION: What not to bring?

The focus of our 11:11 Master Cylinder is to form a strong One Being and to fully emerge as True Ones. To do this, we need a unified focus. So please don't bring separate personal agendas, ego or old baggage.

Drug use is never tolerated and will cause your expulsion from the Master Cylinder. PURE HEART LOVE is infinitely better than anything we could experience from drugs.



QUESTION: What can we expect during the Eleventh Gate Activation?

Expect the Unexpected! Each 11:11 Gate Activation Master Cylinder experience has been totally different. Usually, the Activation itself is easy, although there can be moments of tremendous challenges. We often go off the map of the known into totally new territory. Eleventh Gate is going to be very strong, since it is the final 11:11 Activation.

Again, there is no set schedule. Whatever we do just flows into position. Expect to be totally present in your full being, alert and real. When you are in a Master Cylinder, you will be experiencing the strongest energies coming into the planet. It's very grounded, but extremely powerful. And you will feel the presence of all the 11:11 Anchor Groups around the world, aligned with us as One Being. There will also be a powerful infusion of the strongest LOVE you have every experienced. At the Activation Ceremony, many people experience visions and revelations; all are deeply touched. There is nothing else like an 11:11 Master Cylinder; it is the experience of a lifetime.

QUESTION: Why do we wear white clothing for the Activation?

We actually wear white clothing with bright colorful accents such as scarves or sarongs. White symbolizes the purity of our One Being. When we all wear white, there is no distraction from our Oneness.

QUESTION: What are Guardians?

Guardians hold the energy around the perimeter of our 11:11 Gate Activations. During the week, we will have Guardian training. Throughout the Activation, we will have at least eleven Guardians in position. Guardians serve together as One Being and help maintain the sanctity of the ceremony, making the center of our circle feel protected. We recommend that everyone serves as a Guardian for at least part of the ceremony as it's a profound, amazing experience. No matter what is happening in the center of the Master Cylinder, the Guardians are always larger. And no matter how vast and powerful the incoming 11:11 energies are, the Guardians help bring them in and through their physical bodies, anchoring the heightened energies into the Earth.

QUESTION: How long is the Ceremony?

The Eleventh Gate Activation will be 26 hours long. We will begin in the afternoon of November 21st and complete the Ceremony in the late afternoon of November 22nd. This is so we can align with all the Time Zones of the planet at 11:11 am. The key point of the Activation will take place at 11:11 am Greenwich Mean Time when the Master Cylinder and all the Anchor Groups will align as One Being as the Diamond of the Unseen is revealed. Here in Peru, this will take place at 6:11 am.

QUESTION: What should I bring to the Ceremony?

White clothes with bright accents. Be prepared for anything with many layers of clothing, including gloves, sun hats, rain gear, warm hats, socks, boots, jackets, sweaters, ponchos, scarves, etc. It will be very cold during the night of our Ceremony. Also bring a cloth to sit on. Several bottles of water and some snacks are helpful too.



QUESTION: Do we all have to stay at the same hotel? Can I camp or stay somewhere else?

It's vitally important that we all stay together as the Master Cylinders are very deep and intimate. Much takes place during our breaks and after the evening session. The exception to this will be if we fill up our hotel and need to get another hotel in Urubamba. If so, we will arrange transportation to the Aranwa in the morning after breakfast which will return to Urubamba after our evening's session.

QUESTION: Will there be a Meal Plan?

Our Meal Plan includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will begin with dinner on November 14th.

QUESTION: Can I just show up at the hotel without registering in advance?

NO. Please don't just show up at the hotel without preregistering with us. Much advance planning goes into organizing an 11:11 Master Cylinder, such as obtaining special room rates, making rooming lists and meal plans, organizing transport to the Activation site. All the expenses to the hotel have to be paid in full in early October.

QUESTION: Can I make my own reservations at the hotel?

Our hotel has no more rooms available. We have reserved all their available rooms for the Master Cylinder dates.

QUESTION: Can I arrive at the hotel earlier than November 14th or stay later than November 24th?

Yes. The Aranwa Hotel and Resort is extending its special group rate to us for early arrivals and late departures. It is highly recommended to arrive in Peru 2-3 days before the Master Cylinder preparations begin. This gives everyone enough time to rest from your journey and adjust to the change in altitude.

QUESTION: Will we have time to visit Machu Picchu or go shopping?

We will be very busy preparing for the Eleventh Gate Activation during our week of preparations. We will make a special, early morning visit to the amazing Inca site of Moray. Arriving early or staying later gives you time for visiting some of the incredible Inca sites in the area and for shopping in the colorful markets of Ollantaytambo, Pisac and Chinchero.



QUESTION: Do I need a visa to enter Peru?

We have heard that residents of the following countries do not need visas for Peru, but it is always best to inquire about Peruvian Visa requirements at your nearest Peruvian Embassy or Consulate.

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Cook Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Estonia, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guyana, Haiti, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Moldova, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Korea, Russia, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Tonga, Trinidad & Tobago, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Uruguay, USA, Vanuatu and Venezuela.

Upon arriving in Peru, you may ask for a Visa of 30 days, 90 days or 183 days.

Everyone's passport must be valid for at least six months after their arrival.



QUESTION: Why does it cost money to attend?

Each 11:11 Gate Activation takes many months of preparation. The location must be visited several months ahead of time and the proper Activation Site found. Hotels and conference rooms must be booked. Most of the costs are to cover the cost of hotel rooms and meals. In addition to this, the conference room, sound system and generators must be rented and transportation is chartered. Pages of information are written, sent forth and put on this website. Musicians are hired and expenses are paid for the staff. 11:11 Master Cylinders operate on a very tiny profit margin; it takes over 100 people before we break even on the basic expenses, and much more than that before there is any financial compensation for the time spent and work done. There is an immense amount of work involved in organizing an 11:11 Gate Activation and in the preparation of the Master Cylinder and on a vaster scale, preparing the planet for the energies of the new 11:11 Gate.

QUESTION: Are discounts or scholarships available?

We are deeply grateful for donations to the Eleventh Gate Scholarship Fund. Any money received will be used to help worthy people pay their Eleventh Gate expenses. However, there is already a long list of dedicated people who need scholarship help.

Part of our individual breakthrough as a True One is for each of us to personally raise the money to get there. If we make a firm commitment to be there, no matter what, we will manifest the needed funds much easier than we can imagine. Each of us can manifest them by finding a creative solution. Perhaps, ask all your friends to contribute a little bit, or your Anchor Group, or have a yard sale or take an extra job. And, there's always the option of throwing it on a credit card or getting a loan to pay off later.

QUESTION: How can I pay? Can I pay by credit card?

Our credit card processor does not allow us to accept credit card payments for conferences or travel. However, you can send a credit card payment via Paypal . ( Once you have opened an account there, click on "Send Money" and send the appropriate amount to:
