  • Yoga & Meditation
  • Daily yoga flow and meditation sessions on the beach invite you to reconnect with the wild and sacred nature in and around you. The sounds, the sights, the sensations, the feelings, the breath, and your intuition all are capable of bringing you to the present moment. Using stillness and movement, you can witness the now, and aim for a perpetual attitude of gratitude.
  • Art
  • You will have 2 three hour sessions over the weekend to study the surrealist artwork of Frida Kahlo, and dive into your own life content to create paintings that depict your present/desired reality. With visualization exercise we do beforehand, we can navigate past your internal filters to unlock deep truths and insights to inspire each painting session. Using folk symbols, your imagination, and inspiration from Frida's work, you will transcribe your visualizations on canvas. The alchemy is in daring to see the truth, and setting it free. (Beginner to Advanced instruction provided).
  • Nature
  • Take in all the beauty of Tahoe's North Shore, and breathe the fresh mountain air. Find peace and presence on the nature hikes, cold dips in the lake, sun bathing, or stand-up paddle boarding, and enjoy quiet morning yoga classes on the beach. The Tahoe basin has been sacred grounds for many ancestors, and the energy is potent in this place.
  • Ceremony
  • Evening rituals and creative group healing sessions will be offered to invite the wild and sacred feminine out to play! We will paint bodies in preparation for ceremony, light candles, enter hypnotic states of meditation, breath, and visualization, and partake in Sacred Cacao. Cacao ceremonies are rooted in Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America. They have been used for spiritual and medicinal purposes, as well as inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and energetic expansion of heart centered living. Ceremonial cacao is used by making a strong batch of a warm lightly sweetened cacao beverage that is given in small doses. intentions are set, euphoric states are unlocked, emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body. A dance and movement session follows, where we can embody the transformative effects of the cacao.
  • Raw cacao is a natural and ancient plant medicine, with a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Cacao also increases blood flow (oxygen and nutrients) to the brain as well as induces the release of feel-good endorphins.It enhances the immune system and lowers cholesterol and blood pressure. Cacao is often used to change your perspective, enabling you to recognize and let go of repeated self-sabotaging patterns or habits, and release energetic and creative blocks. Naturally occuring caffeine in cacao gives you a burst of energy that helps you focus and improve your memory and is said to be a big creativity enhancer and facilitator of deep inner meditation and connections.
  • Visualization/Hypnosis
  • With 2 guided sessions of hypnosis/guided visualization led by certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Jacquelyne Price, you will have the opportunity to reveal unconscious memories and stories. We will call upon the unconscious during ceremony and art sessions for non-verbal processing, a way to bypass the conscious mind and dive into experiential healing.We use visualization/hypnosis to tap into the stories that may be getting in the way of experiencing yourself as the wise, wild, vulnerable, brave, and beautiful woman you truely are. You will practice getting in touch with your archetypal feminine power and grace, and let it literally move your body to reveal your true nature. The embodied feminine spirit that is calling to be set free within you is ready to live each day as a new possibility, and stop the cycle of re-creating the past. She is capable of transcending any ‘creative blocks’ in expressing your sacred feminine energy fully. You may laugh, cry, shake, howl, or even scream. Full expression is invited and encouraged to receive maximum benefit from this experience.
