I recently came together with one of my dear friends, Kathryn Holt, to put together an all women's retreat in Boulder, Colorado and it was a spectacular event for me. Ten attendees from all around the country came together and we had an opportunity to teach them the basics of the Shamanic Medicine Wheel. The day was focused on re-dedicating oneself to their own personal power. Everyone had a chance to dance. play, and explore places in ourselves we so easily ignore in our day-to-day lives.
One of the main elements that made this event so incredibly successful was the perfect location, The Star House temple. The Star House was co-founded and constructed by a small group of people dedicated to the principles of Sacred Geometry, StarWisdom, Sacred Union, Mythical Theatre, and Community Ceremony. This temple was built using the principles of Sacred Geometry, specifically the geometry of the Flower of Life. This 12-sided temple is inspired by intersecting circles which create a vesica piscis where the circles overlap. Integrated with the map of the chakras, The StarHouse resonates with energy, physically and spiritually.
When you walk into the space there is an immediate calmness about it that I think put all of our event attendees at ease. This allowed for everyone to feel comfortable and really open to the teachings. The lands even had these gorgeous crystal boulders, a Quan Yin alter that honor people of all spiritual practices & 2 labyrinths.. It was definitely a place that nurtured spiritual growth and acceptance. I truly appreciate everyone who was able to come out to the event and can't wait until the next one!
If you are interested in attending our next event it will be on November 4, 2015 in Denver, CO! Upcoming retreats will be held in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville, TN and Denver, CO. Be sure to check back soon for more details!
