About the event

WHEN: Friday, May 31 - Monday, June 3  WHERE: Spiritual retreat property in Mars Hill, North Carolina, just 40 minutes north of Asheville WHAT TO EXPECT: Join  the spirit tribe for an extended healing weekend in meditation,  communion, and sacred ceremony. Everything in this gathering is soul  medicine. Give yourself unconditional permission to rest, release,  relax, celebrate, and restore together with the family.

Also it is BLUE GHOST FIREFLY SEASON and the spectacle of the fireflies on this land is amazing to witness.  RESONANCE is  an opportunity to come into right relationship with yourself, remember  your power, renew your connection to Source, and reclaim your  sacred life energy. It is a chance to disconnect from the hustle, get  out into nature, connect with other spiritually minded soul family, and  remember your purpose: to be your most authentic, whole self  in resonance with Spirit.  We do this work to heal, evolve, and  come home to our true wild nature. Together we will prepare, set our  intentions, and open the way for joyous celebration through prayer  around Grandfather fire.

Ceremony is a sacred opportunity to  welcome in and deepen your relationship with what matters most. To  become clear with your intentions. To be in compassion and forgiveness.  To invite a new timeline to come forth and to claim your sovereign power  to walk your path with purpose. During the retreat, we will offer three ceremonial meditations and a day of integration

 Friday ~ we  will be supported by Madre Cacao, medicine songs, yoga nidra, and  grandfather drum to welcome the family and open the gathering 3pm - 5pm - Arrival 6pm - Opening Cacao Ceremony

8pm - Dinner

Saturday ~ we  will be working with Los Niños Santos in a two tobacco ceremony in a  celebration of the feminine in reverent appreciation of Mother Earth.  This ceremony is an invitation to go deep within and connect to the  Mystery while you are held by medicine songs, silence, and music.  Journey in safety while the medicine works in you to clean, clear, and  bring forward that which no longer serves you. Liberate yourself from  anything that is not authentic and true. You will receive a special  mapacho cleansing and flower water blessing to guide your path and  purpose. In closing, we will create a gratitude mandala of healing on  the land to give thanks to our ancestors, the elements, and to all of  Creation.

8am - Light Breakfast

10am - Ceremony led by Sinclair

7pm - Dinner

Sunday ~ we  will be supported by Grandfather of the Andes medicine in a 4 tobacco  ceremony which includes 4 prayers - The prayer of purpose, the prayer  for the Father Water, the Power Prayer, and the Prayer for the Mother  Water. The Grandfather of The  Andes goes by many names. The oldest names we know are Huachuma and  Awacolla. When the Spanish came to Amaruca (America) and drank the  medicine, they named it San Pedro (St. Peter) because they said  it brought them right to the Gates of Heaven. This cactus is known as a  heart opener. These two go hand in hand because the Gates of Heaven are  always with us in our hearts. The Grandfather helps us make the journey  from our mind to our hearts, teaches us how to live there, how to  vibrate in that space, and how to carry that vibration out into the real  ceremony of our lives.

The  4 tobacco ceremony is a celebration of Life. The design of the altar  comes from Mexico by way of The Comanche and Ho’Chunk peoples. We spend  the ceremony singing songs to The Creator, The Water, to The Fire, and  the rest of our relatives of all creation. Singing is one of our  favorite ways to pray. We pause singing 4 times in the ceremony to pray  with Tobacco – a sacred ally who amplifies our vibration, grounds our  words into the physical dimension, and reminds us of the unity of all  life.

During  these tobacco prayers, we give thanks and set intentions, pray to honor  the water, our fathers, and the Sky, to pray from what is in our  hearts, and to honor our mothers and The Earth. When we give thanks,  celebrate life, and get close with The Creator, all things that are true  in our hearts are possible.

You  will have the opportunity to come into relationship with the fire and  release anything that is no longer serving you, as well as make prayers  for your life and wellness. Your facilitators will offer counsel and  guidance in this time.

8am - Light Breakfast 10am - Ceremony led by John

8pm - Celebration Feast + Family Fire

 Monday ~ We will close our retreat with a day of integration and completion, including a nourishing sound healing led by the owners of the retreat space. We  will be in deep communion together as we breathe, dance, nourish, and  integrate the heart wisdom of the weekend and plant the seeds to carry  our medicine out into the world.

8am - Breakfast 9am - Integration Circle

10am- Ecstatic Dance

Integration  is vital. Making a good home for what we receive from these ceremonies  is our way of giving back to the heart of the medicines and the  traditions that came before us. Integration is an embodiment of that  wisdom. We make a new path by walking it.
