Awaken to Your Truth retreat

  • location 3303 Meadow Fork Road Hot Springs, NC 28743

Asheville is known for its powerful vortex energy, it is believed these energies intersect under the city. This spiritual energy is often compared to Sedona. The energy is powerful in these wise mountains, rounded by the winds of time, soft and rolling, proud of what they have sustained and still standing tall. These mountains are a metaphor for life, we endure much but still, we stand tall, we continue, we persevere. This spring, in the mountains of North Carolina, come claim your strength, tap into the power of the mountains, pull in the energy of Mother Earth to revitalize you on your journey. 

We will plant the seeds on this 3-day adventure of awakening. Opening to us, to our gifts, to our talents, to our essence, that purity that we all came to life with that sometimes gets lost in the throws of life. Plant the seeds and awaken to your true gifts.

In the woods we will connect deep within, through meditation, breathwork, yoga and sisterhood circles, we will find our connection to nature.  We will breathe in the fresh mountain air as we walk the paths layered with pine needles. Each step taking us into a deeper state of contemplation, connection, and acceptance of life. 

There will be an optional Goddess Reiki Level 1 and 2 certification training after the retreat.
