About the event
The universe is waking up as you! The opportunity is to be a conscious participant in this natural evolution. We are delighted to create a sacred container to nourish the remembrance of What you are as a Divinely Lived Human.
You are invited to join us in the "heart of the world" (as the indigenous refer to this area) to celebrate our aliveness and discover together what it is to be fully embodied as conscious human beings.
Every day will be a weaving of practices aimed to support you in deepening relationship with self, each other, nature, and the Mystery. We will journey into the inner terrain through meditation, movement, breathwork, intuitive sound healing; and the outer through group inquiry and wisdom sharing, improvised circle singing/toning, communication practices, and creative play in nature. We’ll be living into the question “How do we stay true and present with self and authentic in the relational space?”
Participating in our spiritual evolution is the journey of recovering Wholeness and Authenticity. This is how we make our awakening real and grounded in our daily lives.
You’ll be invited to lean into your growing edges, and soften resistance to feeling what is arising moment by moment in your physical, emotional, and mental bodies. From attending to "what is," the capacity to be fully present and connected with self and other grows, and the space of wisdom and creative inspiration becomes more accessible. BEING blossoms easefully.
This is a time of profound change compelling us to live and take actions aligned with our Soul and deepest realization of Truth and Love.
Whether or not you feel satisfied with your life’s expression, what is calling you NOW from your future highest possibility? What’s possible for you in your own life, and for you as a participant in the planetary evolution and collective awakening?
Your unique wisdom is needed. It matters. We each have a piece of the pie.
Really getting that you matter is step one to becoming a clearer channel for Love and Truth to live and transmit through you. If you feel called to the journey, the potent field we co-create will nourish your spiritual evolution, help you claim your authentic voice, and empower your purpose in the world.
Our intention is to support you in going beyond the point of no return in which your aware connection with the awakened Presence that lives you is unshakeable and continues to grow, rather than come and go!

"Christa is masterful at orchestrating the unfoldment of our hearts and souls through meditative journeys and blissful connection practices. Her energy to hold space and teach is nothing short of astounding.”
Karen Chonzena, Snohomish, WA

We will cultivate awareness of Presence and subtle perceptual sensitivities through the following:
Daily Gentle Hatha Yoga: the embodied ritual to strengthen the immediate felt sense of self and nature.
Daily Silent Meditation to cultivate stillness and spaciousness and become available to the transformational Grace that holds us in this accelerated time.
Embodiment practices drawn from Qi Gong, Voice Movement Therapy and Body Mind Centering™: To Awaken subtle perceptions of the inner body thereby empowering authentic Presence, spontaneous creative expression, and enriching connection with self, others and nature.
Sound Healing Circles and Vocal Improvisations to deepen our listening to the Mystery as it creates through us as individuals and as a collective.
Self Inquiry and group inquiry: sharing of timeless wisdom and our individual truths, insights and revelations.
Daily Alone time for self study, journaling, long beach walks, hammock time and ocean/pool swimming.
Ceremonies with Indigenous Masters
We will have a special Healing Ceremony with the Kogi Mamos (Shaman-Priests) of Colombia (the famed "Elder Brothers" of humanity and "Keepers of the World"). The Kogi have a passion for sharing their wisdom teachings to visiting westerners. Their pure devotion and oneness with the Earth is a powerful transmission!
Adventure in the "Heart of the World"...
We will spend time at a sacred waterfall and pristine swimming hole in the jungle on Summer Solstice...who knows what magic will unfold?.
Optional Adventures: We will have a one day optional field trip (small extra cost for tour guides) that includes hiking through the jungle in the sacred Sierra Nevada mountains to a Kogi Mamo home to see how he and his family live. Then River Tubing back--a delicious float on a pristine river sacred to the Kogi's--view monkeys, wild birds and find our river voices.
Close by is Colombia's treasured Parque Tayrona, offering horse back riding through the ancient jungle, hiking to gorgeous beaches to swim in crystal clear ocean waters and trekking to the Lost City guarded by the Kogi. Adventuring into the park can be arranged for before or after the retreat or can be done instead of the River Tubing trip.
