Experience the liminal space of what it means to truly unplug and connect to your inner strength.
In a time when you are always plugged in, it can be hard to slow down and reset. What if you spent the day unplugged? What could you create during this time? What insights could come from this time? What healing could you receive?
Inner connection happens when you unplug from the world. The new moon is on Oct 25th and so the energy will start to align for the full moon. This is a great time to start releasing and shedding off layers so that you can begin to feel, see and hear your inner truth loud and clear.
At the Earth Sanctuary, you will be easily connected with the heart of Mother Earth. Her resonant heartbeat could be thought of as the Schumann resonance. When you are able to unplug, the deeper connection you will receive to yourself, Mother Earth, and your heart. The insights and connections flow without the cloud or noise taking up any space.
A ceremonial gathering simply means that we create the most intentional space together, honoring all of our journeys to arrive here and now.
Day Ceremony $375
