About the Event

Join us on a powerful three day journey of soulful healing as we delve into and quickly through our personal and collective suffering; using tools and techniques to transform pain into exquisite lessons cultivating in divine sacredness, essence of light.

We will use multiple ancient traditions, learnings and practices to delve into revelation, and transformation into our most sacred exquisite essence. We will visit ancient sacred sites for meditation and original source healing. We will introduce the wisdom and insights of the pathways on the Tree of Life to understand our personal journeys of suffering, while finding the wisdom in the darkness that leads us to divine light and healing. We will dance, play, laugh, sing, meditate, and practice yoga as we discover our power of connectedness to all things; giving rise to understanding our sacredness.  

You will arrive as one being, and leave as another.
