Desert Shakti Highlights/Auspicious Additions:

Cacao Ceremony ~ Gateway to the Heart
In the spirit of the ancient traditions, we will be offering a sacred circle of ceremony and celebration centered around the sharing of a cacao elixir.
Pure cacao is an authentic plant medicine used to uplift the spirit, deepen focused meditation and strengthen our reconnection with heart centered awareness.
Known as the “food of the Gods,” cacao has an expansive, mood-enhancing quality that helps us gently shift blockages while realigning us with the path of the heart.

Spirit Crown Workshop (optional addition, $175 add-on)
Self-expression is definitely Sophie’s wheelhouse! Leading the way for people to release resistance they may have in self acceptance and celebration, belief in the beauty and value of their unique strengths – The Spirit Crown workshop is an extraordinary offering and we are thrilled to be including this option as part of our retreat!
The intention –

To use wearable art in the form of headdresses to elevate the divine joy and radical expression of individuals and communities.
To bring people together in the name of celebration and reconnect communities with the ancient tradition of adornment during rites of passage.
To provide an experience of tangibly connecting with an empowered state of being.
To make accessible a truly special experience meant previously only for “real performers,” so that all people can feel as special and unique as they innately are.

Fire Ceremony w/ Jenna Walter
Fire ceremony is an ancient practice that brings about the remembrance of connecting to ones soul which creates an expansion in our hearts. This allows us to source the power from within to rapidly transform.
A fire ceremony is an alchemical field in which we are invited to honor, receive the gifts from and then to release the binds of traumas, stories, limiting beliefs and karma. By honoring and receiving the gifts from our past we activate grace. Grace creates space in which to live our lives in a consciousness that is of enlightenment which holds open the potential for rebirth and living your dreams.
Fire ceremony supports us on our journey toward a deeper awareness of the energy/life force in the spirit realm. They are also a beautiful way to bring communities together and heal the land upon which they are in relationship with.
