Charlene Anderson

Charlene, Don Anderson’s wife lived full-time at Warren Light Center for a number of years.  Charlene registered the attendees,  put together the program booklets, kept up with things like correspondence, the mailing lists, getting things mailed, and making her home open to anyone that showed up at WLC either during events or when there was no one other than Don and her on the grounds.  Charlene took phone calls for instructors and attendees during events and made certain people got messages.  She would make certain meals and the people preparing them were on track.  That restaurant reservations were done or that caterers where on site and prepared.  There were no cell phones so her phone in their trailer was often the only form of communication into or out of the center.  In fact even in later years many when there were cell phones many of them did not work at all at WLC.

Charlene moved from the Center to eastern Ohio where she is now located.  It is my hope to get an oral history of WLC from Charlene and post that here on the site.  She probably knows more of the history of WLC and the people attending or involved there than any other living person.

Charlene always made people feel welcome and was instrumental in helping make their experience at the center go well.

You could drop into WLC just about any evening when nothing was going on and find Don and Charlene out in front of their mobile home with a camp fire going and very often fresh coffee made a few minutes before unexpected visitors arrived – or just dropped by.  Charlene collected the money for events,  from people camping on the grounds when there was nothing going on and in general making people feel welcome and comfortable being there.

Don Anderson

Don and his wife Charlene were long time permanent residents of the Warren Light Center.  They lived in a mobile home that was located at the bend where to the left was the landing field and to the right was the main part of the center itself.

Don was the caretaker of the land.  He made the electric and water work, mowed and cared for the land, and was involved with the building of the permanent structures and their maintenance.  Prior to gatherings and events several large tents would be put up for the classes and workshops.  Don would put up these tents and also take them down after the event and store them.

Don had a vision which resulted in a drawing that sort of resembled a mandala or a sacred symbol.  This he had hanging in his mobile home as a painting for a number of years.  Spirit was able to show Don that this symbol was actually a physical structure.  Don following the guidance of  Spirit turned this symbol into a physical structure that he built according the Guidance he got from Spirit.

The structure became known as the APORCEE – it was of a very exacting shape and size that Don was led to physically build.  One could enter the structure from the bottom and go up to a level in the center.  Many people spent time in the APORCEE and had a number of profound experiences there.

The APORCEE was a portal that would take people beyond the known physical reality.

The APORCEE at WLC was only one place that interconnected with other portals located in various times and places in the Universe, and in other dimensions as well.

While many people who were involved with the APROCEE experience were able to go inside the structure, get quiet, and then travel to other portals mentally or spiritually, some were able to physically travel they were able to enter the APORCEE and travel, taking their physical body with them.

The interior of the APORCEE was large enough for several people to be there at the same time and there were reports of  two, three, or four people entering the structure.  They, working together, would shift their consciousness to be open to the portals and the alternate realities that the APORCEE was interconnected with.  Every so often, when they would return to normal consciousness, one or two of the people who had entered the structure them would no longer physically be there.

The remaining people would descend down  to the bottom and leave the structure thinking that the ones missing had already left.  Often when these events happened, they would search the grounds and not be able to locate the other participants who had been in the structure with them.

The person(s) who had become physically absent while in the structure would eventually return to APORCEE anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours later, only to find that the other people with them had already left, or there were people there who were not the same ones as when they went in.  And very often upon return, they would experience episodes of  “missing time”.  This was particularly so when they were physically absent for several hours.  Those who had gone missing felt like they had been in the structure for a few minutes yet, after making comparisons, discovered that several hours had passed.

Of course other people would go into the APORCEE and absolutely nothing would happen, nor would they experience anything out of the ordinary.

The APORCEE was also a two-way portal. 

From time to time people would emerge from the structure who had no idea where they were or how they got there.  They did not arrive at WLC via the road and the gate and had not idea where WLC was located.  These visitors would return to the structure and from there would return to where they had physically originated.

Besides being the caretaker of WLC and the builder of the APORCEE, Don would go through a particular chant at the APORCEE at least twice everyday – not just the days when others were there – everyday.

The chant had been given to him from the same source that the original drawing had come from.  It established and maintained the energy of APORCEE.

When Don passed on, the APORCEE ceased to work as it had, at least for a number of people


There were paintings made of APORCEE. Some have said the paintings are able to create the same effects as Don’s structure when working with them, or photos of them  that, through use of the images, those persons were able to evoke the same effects of the structure itself.

Recordings were made made of Don’s chanting at the APOCREE which have also been said to bring about similar experiences of being in the structure .
