A Spiritual Retreat with Meghan Don: A Vision of Hope and Goodness
Friday         May 19          7-9 pm

Saturday    May 20          10 am-5 pm

Sunday       May 21          10:30 am-12 pm

 

When our world is going through dark times, it is essential that we maintain or re-envision a world where hope is alive and where the goodness of humanity is remembered and lived. As always, our beginning place is within our own soul.

 

During this retreat we will ask ourselves very honest questions and dig deep for answers. Drawing forth the wisdom of the Gnostic feminine teachings, and making it relevant for our lives today, we will enter into spiritual dialogue, in-depth meditation, ancient feminine chant and sacred movement.

 

Sunday Morning - Gnostic Grace Circle Service

Celebrate the union of the feminine and masculine energies, within our own beings and within the world. We will invoke the Archangels of the Sacred Circle and join in chant and prayer.


Facilitated by Meghan Don, author of The New Divine Feminine. Originally from New Zealand, Meghan has traveled the world in search of her spiritual truth. As founder of The Gnostic Grace Circle, her work with mystic meditation, dance and chant helps to raise the feminine consciousness.

 

Early Bird Paid by May 5 - $135 / After $165
