I enjoyed our “Hope of Glory” retreat to Nova Scotia so much this year that I have already planned next year’s retreat. SPIRITMUV’s 2014God is a Brown Girl Too Retreat is entitled “Reclaiming the Vortex,” which will take place near Sedona, Arizona at the Sedona Mago Retreat Center (“Mago”) from Monday, May 19, 2014 through Friday, May 23, 2014.
This sixth annual retreat will allow us to go even deeper than we have in the past by . . .
Re-Leasing Through the Womb of Surrender
We will let go of whatever no longer serves us. We will learn, create and uplift the blessing of release through practice, ritual and ceremony.
Re-Claiming the Power of Re-Birth
We will embrace our power to change, to heal, to grow, to allow, and to enjoy the process of being reborn through truth, accountability and freedom.
Re-Emerging with the Soul of the Vortex
We will center in the energy of Sedona’s vortexes. There are 21 powerful vortexes on the earth. Four of these vortexes are grouped in Sedona, encompassing the entire city – due to the energy generated by the red rocks and giant crystals buried beneath them. This energy will add to a deeper retreat experience.
Re-Connecting with the Mother Spirit
We will reclaim the beauty that we are as unique expressions of Divine Mind – both individually and collectively. We will learn to give ourselves the best beauty treatment ever by harnessing and reflecting the light of Spirit.
Re-Membering the Presence of Being
We will honor the sacred practices of being still, quieting our minds so that we stop talking and begin knowing.
Re-Imagining Love with Open Eyes
We will expand our notion of what love is and allow its riches to enlarge our territories to be love, share love and attract the love we desire.
Re-Turning to Doing Greater Things
We will embark on a vision quest of the soul and allow the universe to reveal our highest aspirations, the purest potential just waiting in the inexhaustible stream of supply to bless us.
Just as we felt the bosom of the ocean while on the ship this summer, the glory of each activity, the force of our prayers, the magnificence of being one with God, we will be blessed as those are Spirit-led to join us will create the consciousness of two or more gathered together to demonstrate absolute good.
Mago is on 160-acres , surrounded by majestic red rocks, Native American ruins and southwestern wilderness. It is owned and operated by Tao Fellowship, a non-profit organization established in 1998 to promote the spirit of Tao as a principle of harmony and peace.
Our sessions will be located in the Arirang Room, named after a spiritual Korean song that celebrates the joy of discovering the true self. The large rock ledge outside the Arirang Room has a commanding view of Mago.
We will be blessed mind, body and soul. Delicious healthful vegetarian meals will be served buffet style three times a day, infused with loving energy from the Earth and the people who prepared it. Mago is equipped with its own 1.8-acre garden, full of fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and egg-laying chickens to feed its guests.
We will wear clothing that is easy to move in and comfortable. Layering is recommended to adjust to the changing temperatures throughout the day. We will remove our shoes before entering all rooms so we will bring shoes that easily come on and off. Guest rooms will be supplied with towels and soap. The pool and jacuzzi are open year round, so we can bring a swimsuit. Laundry rooms are available.
