- 6pm Monday 6/19 Integration call: zoom call to share, process and start the integration process. This is very KEY to your integration process. I will be giving guidance and support as needed. Please plan accordingly so you can be on the call.
Pot luck meal: We will be ravenous afterwards! It’s fun and very enjoyable to picnic together as we share and integrate our experiences. Please plan on bringing something yummy to share with all. So many of us these days are gluten-free so if you can pull that off, that would be great.
We will be on amazing land with stunning views, animal and land spirits, trees, water, and not a lot of anything else. It’s rustic – no running water, no electricity, nothing to heat food on so come prepared for all of that and for a picnic out in nature. Bring all that you need to be comfortable. Bring your plates, napkins, cutlery, something to serve your dish with, lots of drinking water, bug spray, sunscreen, etc.
There will be a big stand-alone tarp for sun and rain protection, should we need/want it. We can eat under there if the sun is too intense or if the rain spirits decide to bless us. For your bathroom needs, there are bushes and a port-a-potty.
There are lots of trees for shade as well. The Boulder creek runs very close to the land as well, extra amazingness!
Carpooling up to Eldora is a must as parking is very limited. Please try and get everyone into 3 cars. It’s also a nice way to start getting to know the people you are going to be doing some powerful work with.
Meeting Area: Settler’s Park Parking lot. Plug in Settler’s Park or this Pin: 2P73+MVP Central Boulder, Boulder, CO. It will show exactly where the little parking lot is . It’s across from Eben Fine park, just at the base of Boulder Canyon.
Meeting Time: 7:00 AM. There is a parking lot on the north side where people park to go into Settler’s Park. This is where you will gather and leave cars behind. If needed, there is more parking on Pearl St, the road you turn on to go into the little parking lot for Settler’s Park. Please be on time otherwise it will make everyone late. If you arrive too late, it won’t be possible for you to find us so be punctual or even a bit early.
It will take about 30 mins to get up to our location. The amazing land we will be on is at the ‘end’ of Eldora.
Here are a few guidelines so you can come well prepared for the ceremony.
Wear loose, comfy clothing. For the ladies, you might want to leave the bras off that day. Dresses or skirts are a great option. Everything can feel very restrictive if it’s not loose and free. There is also an invitation to ‘dress up’. This is a way of honoring Spirit, like a celebration but it’s not required. Some people like to have eye covers as well.
Reference Eldora for the temps and climate. Come prepared for the typical temperature changes from early morning to evening. Bring layers, a hat, sunhat, a raincoat, jacket, boots, sandals, etc. – anything you feel you might need to be comfortable, warm/cool in nature and indoors. Please come overprepared. Better that way than in lack!
Ceremonial cacao is heirloom cacao that is delicious and heart-opening. It also has a fair amount of caffeine in it so if you are sensitive, you might refrain from your cup of tea or coffee in the morning and save your ‘caffeine dose’ for our gathering. Also ceremonial cacao is a diuretic. You will get very thirsty during the ceremony so make sure you have your water with you.

If you are reading this and thinking, ‘I don’t know what they like.’, then go quiet in meditation, and ask. They will share with you.
Preparing yoursel f for our journey…
Do as much clearing, healing, releasing, and meditation as you can. Eat as clean and healthy as possible. Best to cut out alcohol and any recreational drugs between now and our ceremony. This will prepare you to be a better channel for all the amazing insights, healing, transformation, higher consciousness, aha’s, activations, and any other beautiful things Spirit might have in mind for you.
Start formulating your intentions for our journey. What would you like to heal, release, expand into, gain new awareness about, access? An intention is like a prayer; it is a statement of your motivation or direction. Your intention directs your journey and communicates to your Higher Self what it is that you are seeking. It helps focus the energies to support you.
Once you say ‘Yes, I’m in’, the journey begins energetically. Be mindful of the things that pop up in your world between now and our ceremony. It might give you some insight into your process.
Doing Pre-journey work can be very beneficial in clearing blocks and getting you into a grounded, receptive and open place for a more potent, magical ceremony. Please reach out if this resonates and we will get something on the calendar.
It’s a powerful all-day experience. There is much healing, transformation, shifts, aha’s, that take place. It is best to have time to process and integrate as you slowly go back into your normal routine.
The integration and processing will continue on different levels and ways for everyone. Being in nature, journaling, baths with Epsom salts and essential oils, nourishing, high vibe foods and good sleep are some suggestions to help with your process.
Being proactive with your integration process with all the insights, downloads, healings, inspirations, etc. that you received during ceremony is KEY to receiving the full benefit. If there isn’t pro-active integration, all the golden nuggets you got, can seem like a dream a week later as you flow back into your regular routine.
To assist with this, there will be 3 group integration sessions, small accountability groups, and an integration email thread for sharing within our group. With these tools, everyone from ceremony can continue to be supported, to support and be in community. This all helps you get the most out of your ceremonial experience.
Need more personalize support? You can also do 1:1 Spirit Reiki Integration sessions for more individualize support. We dive deeper into your journey and what is coming up for you, help process, understand and implement the guidance into your life. It’s a 60 min. session, sliding scale of $140-$180.
