Desert Nights Retreat At The Cactus Moon
Desert Nights Retreat At The Cactus Moon
Dates: April 20, 2023 – April 23, 2023
Join Pam Rose and Lauren Lovett for spring nights in the high desert in CA where we’ll tell stories about life and love by the light of the desert stars…
A TIME FOR RENEWAL RECONNECTION AND RECREATION
In these extraordinary and challenging times, we may not even be aware of how these last years have affected or changed us.
Being in nature has been a sacred source of healing and restoration for millenia. The dry calm of the desert can help to re-establish our relationship to our groundedness, our center, and even our purpose.
In this setting, we honor the opportunity to share what we know about the transformative power of nature through Music, Story Telling, Star Gazing, and our relationship to the Cosmos with the help of Astronomy and Basic Archetypal Astrology.
Tools like the art of how to ground ourselves with calming yoga and body work, and how to center ourselves with light meditation to take away and use in our daily lives.
The information wisdom that your body holds is going to impact you, no matter what your profession is.
A mind-body experience, but what does that mean?
Come experience this for a long weekend in the high desert.
Lead a richer, more vibrant life.
You deserve more.
There is this tendency in our western culture to language from a place of LACK or scarcity, rather than speaking from a place of empowerment, as if it’s too masculine or too showy or too much.
“This was an incredibly eye-opening and transformative experience. I learned so much about myself and my peers. Being silent for the first 24 hours was important to allow ourselves to unplug from the pressures and noise of the outside world.”
“The workshops encouraged me to engage my imagination, turn inward, and let go and be.”
“I learned a lot of tools to calm my nervous system that I have taken away with me and continued in my everyday life. It was important to me that this retreat focused on the artist in all of us. I learned to slow down, and that that is okay. The enjoyment of existing actually encourages creativity. I felt like I rediscovered my love of my art there.”
“Beautiful location, delicious food, wonderful company, challenging and exciting programming and an exceptional opportunity.”
“This retreat brought up so many powerful realizations for me. It has given me so many things to continue to excavate and work on. It helped me realize how I am speaking in relation to both myself and other people and applying what I learned at this retreat is really helping me embody who I want to be. I really liked that different healers were incorporated so you got to experience lots of different styles and approaches.”
“My experience at the retreat was really gentle and expansive. So much space was held for processing individually and together. The first 24 hours in silence really set a president for internal discovery and reflection. All the programming was extremely supportive and helpful. Thank you so much!”
Travel // Arrival // Departure
Getting to the Retreat – when, where, how etc.
Once you’ve registered, you’ll be sent the exact address of the retreat venue which is in Yucca Valley, CA — less than 15 minutes west of Joshua Tree, about 40 mins from the Palm Springs Airport, and about 2 hours and 20 mins from Los Angeles (depending on traffic and jumping off point).
Arrival time on Thursday November 10th will be between 1p and 3p.
Departure time will be 12p Sunday November 13th.
We will be making a trip to a one-of-a-kind high desert experience called Integratron during our retreat…
You will rest comfortably in the deeply resonant, multi-wave sound chamber while a sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls are played.
Each bowl is keyed to the energy centers or chakras of the body, where sound is nutrition for the nervous system. The results are waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body.
