Ascend to Higher Levels of Consciousness

Nourish Your Body-Mind-Spirit

Connect with your Intuition

Clear blockages to Manifest Radiant Health & Joy

Imagine immersing your senses in the natural beauty of the Adirondacks.  The smell of spring is in the air and the gentle breeze off Lake Clear caressing your face and hair.  You awaken with the sounds of birds chirping and the trees rustling after a deep sound sleep.  You wade into the cool waters and ground into Mother Earth as you feel the powerful lake vortex charge the energy centers within you.

You saunter into the Lodge for a delicious traditionally prepared homemade meal by Master Chef and Weston A Price Chapter leader Cathy Hohmeyer, your lodge host.  You don’t have to cook! You don’t even have to make your bed.  You just nourish yourself from the inside out.

Then the Event begins.  Experience group energy healing and Ancient self-healing techniques. Learn how to cook traditional foods to ground and center your body.  Practice your intuitive skills.  And much, much more…

If you can imagine how wonderful this feels, then your body is really saying “Yes” to joining us at this special two-day event!
