Welcome to the rich world of archetypes, mindfulness and meditation. Explore the timeless magic of mysticism and hear the beauty of its call.
This year’s Garden of Mindfulness theme is based on the myths and masculine and feminine archetypes in “Women who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Nurture the wild creative within and enhance your and your family’s wellbeing through play and nature exploration. This retreat is open to all genders.
This universalist meditation retreat on Angels is based on a series of symbolic, ancient mystery teachings, helping people live better, more purposeful lives.
May Aphrodite bless you with her kindness. May the air around you grow thick with her tenderness, slowing everything down. May you feel her breath as your own, allowing her to breathe in you. She is love. Love. Love. But she has been misrepresented.
Pan, sweet beloved Pan. If people only knew your joy, your love of freedom. You are not seperate from anything, your name meaning All. You are deeply embedded in life, Lord Pan. God of the wild, god of nature, god of the mountain wilds, God of fields, groves and wooded glens, I invoke thee.
Bestow the Owl Gift, the ability to write and communicate clearly. Show us to the burial places of mythical kings. Strike the rock with your spear. Expel the Vices from the Garden of Virtue. I call your name. Your aegis, your shield made of goat skin, produces a sound as from a myriad roaring dragons. Roar it.
An aspect of the Goddess Artemis could be seen in the High Priestess. Her archetypal feminine energy embodies cool-minded clarity, direction, fearlessness, courage. Artemis is the goddess of the forests and mountainous wildlands. She helps with the ability to protect oneself and provide nourishment. A moon goddess, she is a protector in childbirth, of nine-year-old girls (who were called her “little she bears”) and relieving women’s ill health. As a mountain goddess, she is free to roam and be true to herself.
