Four Days of Alchemical Magick in Nature’s Schoolhouse
The Green Temple of the Redwood Forest
Celebrate the Spring Equinox in the Year of the Green Wood Dragon
Thursday, March 21st – Sunday, March 24th, 2024
Reset, Recalibrate, Renew and Rebirth into a new expression of you
In Chinese Astrology, each year is associated with an element and an animal sign. 2024 will be the year of the green wood dragon. The essence of the green wood dragon is strongest at the time of the turning of the wheel during the Spring Equinox.
The redwood forest, with its towering trees and tranquil presence, is a sacred realm in which nature’s energy intertwines with your own. When one visits the ancient grove forests that are home to the mighty Redwood elder teachers, they remind us to reach for the stars. They are the tallest trees in the world. One cannot enter the green temple of a forest grove without a stirring of our own sense of the sacred. The redwoods are ancient spirits working in alliance with the dragon. These magnificent ones teach us to be present in the moment. Great changes and growth occur a little at a time so we must be patient with ourselves.
2024 is a year of truly weaving a new reality in the vibrational frequency of an 8 year. A year of Resilience and Manifestation. We are being given an opportunity to take a quantum leap forward to rise into our full potential as we raise our consciousness to the highest vibration.
The ancient Egyptians, Islamists, Chinese, Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists ALL acknowledge the sacredness of the forest. They all see the symbol of the World Tree as a way to spiritually connect to the Divine… For the Tuatha De Dannan, the World Tree was the embodiment of balance and harmony in Nature. For the ancient Maya, it represented the spiritual connection of all things throughout Heaven, Earth, and the Underworld.
Spending time in the Redwood Forest can support the integration of this huge shift of energy as these are the most powerful beings offering guidance towards a platform of truth and a solid foundation. Imagine your ancestors and the ancestors of the trees coming together in a sacred union, a meeting for creating the future. Your personal future and the new global reality we are threading into the dragon lines. The past comes into the present to create the future but must be grounded through the mycelium roots of the world wood network. Together we are creating a global forest of awakened, heart centered hooomans, all bringing their ancestral wisdom into the present so we can correct the wrongs of the past and how we have treated the planet and the divine earth mother known as Danu for the Tuatha de Dannan.
Less than 3% of that original cathedral of the redwood trees exists due to the ignorance of hooomans. We will have an opportunity to explore what was once the greatest forest on earth. When we walk together along easy trails under the forest canopy, I’ll invite you to touch and listen to the trees, to smell and taste what is on the wind, to notice what you are seeing for the first time and to experience communication with the dragons. Slowly, time deepens, and the stresses of the modern world fall away. Completely relaxing into the experience, what the forest offers is crucial for good health. With compassion and wisdom, the forest guides you along its hidden trails. Connect with the mystical energy of these ancient woods, for they hold the key to your path. Trust your intuition, for it is your inner compass, leading you towards your highest purpose. The sacred redwood forest hold the space for your beautiful journey.
Shinrin-Yoku, first established in Japan is a growing global wellness movement backed by 30 years of scientific research on the physical and psychological benefits of immersing yourself in nature. Known as forest bathing, forest therapy can lower blood pressure and trigger a dramatic increase in the activity of natural killer (NK) cells produced by the immune system to ward off infection and fight disease. Spending three days in the forest has been shown to increase NK activity by 50 percent. The natural chemicals secreted by evergreen trees, collectively known as phytoncide, have been associated with improvements in health focusing on reducing the effects of chronic stress which reduces our immune function and makes us more prone to depression, heart disease, and other disorders. Walking in a forest is known as Prescription Green and the benefits are enormous for overall mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health.
As we step into the natural world far away from the fast world of human, we remember we are intricately connected to nature. We can open to the wisdom these grand elders have to share. The idea is to slow down and experience nature in a deeper way than you have before. To hear the whisper of the trees gifting us with guidance and direction for our earth walk. Inspiring us to reach for the stars and be all we were meant to be. These ancient forests are the sanctuary and sacred temples of the dragon and fae. As we awaken to our memory, dragons are becoming more of a curiosity to hooomas. Dragons can be summoned to assists us in our own transformation and personal alchemy as well as to protect us from external influences that cause us to lose our center. If change is scary for you, the dragons can lovingly guide you through this transition. This year more interstellar communications will be occurring and more portals on the earth will be opening.
Many cultures, especially shamanic cultures, point to the potential for our relationship with nature as an essential ingredient for one’s spiritual growth. It’s one thing to put our bodies in nature, but it’s quite another to put our minds there, to “bathe” in it. I will guide you into some of the most enchanted places on our beloved sacred blue. Unplug, unwind and journey with me on a pathway of discovering your own magnificence. Discover the wood wide web. Scientists call these mycorrhizal networks. The fine, hair like root tips of trees that join together with microscopic fungal filaments to form the basic links of the network, which creates a symbiotic relationship between trees. All trees are connected to each other and work with the unseen world in activating the dragon lines. They are key in restoring balance to the world of hoooman.
Trees are communal and will often form alliances with trees of other species. Forest trees live in cooperative, interdependent relationships, maintained by communication and a collective intelligence. These soaring columns of living wood draw the eye upward to their outspreading crowns reminding us to reach for the heavens. The real action is taking place underground, just a few inches below our feet reminding us to ground, find our center and just be. This weekend is designed to give you practical tools in communing with nature, to elevate your energy and increase physical, mental, and emotional health while restoring balance and sense of purpose. Our days will be spent in the natural world of the green temple. The redwood forest is located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean so we will also be tapping into the wisdom of the Sacred Blue with powerful water rituals.
I invite you to join me as the wheel turns at the time of the Spring Equinox and life begins again in the sacred temple of the natural world to share in the magick. To celebrate the turning of the wheel we will join for a special Cacao Ceremony.
Ceremonial cacao has a long and rich history in the cultures of Mesoamerica, where it was revered as a sacred gift from the gods. The ancient Mayans and Aztecs revered cacao and used it as an offering to their deities to invoke magick. During a cacao ceremony, you will awaken skills, talents, passions, and aspirations that have long been forgotten. Cacao brings a deep state of Peace as you develop a relationship with this beautiful plant being. Not only is cacao a natural medicine for your body, but it’s also the magick your spirit needs be awakened into your true essence.
Our home base will once again be in Trinidad, California which will allow us time in my favorite hidden forests as well as time to explore the Avenue of the Giants and a very special forest of wise elder trees. For those who have joined me before we will also experience the magick of the river in fern gully where the fae and enchanted ones await. I have many new and very special places to share the magick of this enchanted realm. Sharing during this sacred time, we can enter into the world of Pachamama, our beloved Earth Mother for renewal and rebirthing.
I would suggest flying into the Eureka/Arcata airport which is the closest airport to Trinidad. You can also fly into San Francisco or Sacramento. If you would like to share accommodations, there are many VRBO or Air B and B’s. Also, several B and B’s I can recommend and beautiful cabins in the forest also closely situated for our group experiences. I am also happy to share details for those who would like to share transport and accommodations.
