Tending the HEARTh ~ Exhale and Descend

October 25 - October 27, 2024

Jennifer Muir & Cory Smith

Tending the HEARTh invites you to exhale and descend inward, honoring the season of Autumn and the thinning veil between worlds. As the light wanes and nature slows down, we are called to nourish our inner lives and embrace the mysteries of this transformative time. Join us as we enter this sacred time of year marked by the threshold festival of Samhain, All Souls Day, and All Hallows Eve, connecting with our hearts, each other, and our ancestors beyond the veil.

During this weekend retreat, we will delve deep into the depths of our beings, exploring themes of grief, impermanence, and mortality. Through ritual, guided death meditation, movement, expressive practices, healing sound baths, reiki, altar building, and a fire ceremony, we will call upon our ancestors to guide us as we navigate these mysterious realms.

By tending the heart of our being, we also tend to the heart of humanity in these uncertain times, kindling the inner hearth to light our way forward. Come join us as we create a sacred space for reflection, connection, and healing. Let us honor the spirit of Autumn and embrace the wisdom it offers, as we journey together through the shadows and into the light.

Tend the HEARTh with us and let your inner flame illuminate the path ahead.
