Event description
Immerse yourself in a beautiful setting amongst like minded people celebrating the essence of Spring to lift your vibration from Winter.

About this Event

Celebrating Spring Ceremony is an intimate 1 day retreat for 7 participates where we go deep within ourselves, as we emerge from the cold and darkness of Winter, to clear any negative emotions and feelings in our mind, body and spirit. At this Spring Equinox we are also peeling off any heaviness left from the lockdown and the fear of a pandemic.

The energy of the Equinox is a magical time that reminds us to develop balance in our lives to strengthen our purpose, goals and vision and ultimately build the future of our dreams: with love, confidence and good health.

Spring is also a sacred time for new beginnings, seed consciousness, flowers blooming, brighter light frequency,  fresh prana, warmer weather, creativity, flowing energy, regeneration, love and expansion; an ideal time to set our intentions for new beginnings.

You will be amongst nature at The Yoga Hut in Salt Ash, Port Stephens; a perfect setting for celebrating the essence of Spring, honouring the ancestors and caretakers of the land as well as the nature spirits, deities and divas. You will be surrounded by Australian flora and fauna, an abundance of flowers and plants and then sharing the ceremony with a small group of like minded people in a beautiful sacred space.

By creating this ceremony for the Spring Equinox, with offerings to mother nature, we are strengthening our connection with all that is and the abundance we call life to move forward in a new, more positive and heart centred reality.

To assist this process participants will experience:

1) A gentle Yoga practise with experienced yoga instructor Julie Hawkins from The Yoga Hut to help us to release any winter stiffness in the body and mind which may have accumulated over the Winter;

2) Experience the healing and nurturing benefits of Sacred Cacao*, (raw chocolate) hand picked and prepared from local indigenous women in Guatemala, enabling a gentle activation of the heart and mind. Raw Cacao allows you to travel deeply within oneself for healing at a level that only you can intend. The Sacred Cacao is divinely prepared by Melinda Kalac;

3) Be immersed in a gentle flower healing and cleansing with divine spring water alchemy to purify the aura prepared by Stuart McLean and Melinda Kalac

4) Experience an individual Pranic Crystal Healing to cleanse all past and present negative thoughts, feelings and emotions from the aura and deep within the chakras (energy system) with support from the experienced team at Pranic Healing Hunter;

5) We will also be sharing some divine mother chanting, prayers, meditation, spiritual teachings and engage in mandela art to clear the mind and to thank and bless the divine for the abundance of life and the new birth of Spring;

6) Learn simple cell regeneration techniques to remove all past trauma and suffering stored in our cells and DNA from ancestral memories. These techniques will support and relax your physical body and something that you can regularly practise;

7) Feel nourished with a beautifully prepared, wholesome and divinely blessed vegan meal, prepared with love and prayer. Our lunch will help to ground and assimilate the healing energy from the day.

We will be respecting your space with social distancing and giving you the time to do inner reflection and journaling and allow that deep connection with self, mother earth and the divine.

We are so excited that Spring has sprung and we welcome you on this intimate and personal journey in a sacred circle on a beautiful healing property.

*Sacred Cacao (raw drinking chocolate) served on the day is lovingly handpicked by indigenous women in Guatemala and is a genuine source for our sacred Celebrating Spring Ceremony. Pregnant women and people on anti-depressants or SSRIs or with heart problems or other medications should consume less so please advise the organiser. Cacao is very effective in increasing blood flow to the brain and heart by nearly 40% and is full of incredible nutrients like magnesium, iron, protein, potassium, essential fatty acids, calcium, chromium, zinc and sulphur and is considered to be an excellent source of antioxidants . Please be aware that the theobromine in cacao is a vasodilator: it increases the heart rate and lowers blood pressure. It is a natural mood enhancer and unique to other beverages; it is both a relaxant and a stimulate as the Cacao also contains some caffeine. Consumption is at your own risk. Please advise host of any health issues prior to the event.
