Silent Plant Mentorship Retreats  2019
Come spend entire weekends bonding with plants.
Enjoy plants in simple water infusions that have been prepared in a ceremonial manor.
They may become new best friends, lovers, or great teachers.

Silent plant immersion weekends are an ancient way to honour and connect with plants. They provide space for personal healing and growth. When they are done in a ceremonial process it opens you up physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Non-psychoactive plants are safe, accessible and affordable. They are Teacher Plants too. They are our Elders. When we work with common plants in ceremony we can expericence life in ways that are not usually accessible in everyday consciousness. 
 We are consistantly shifting into a space where we are remembering how to find gateways into higher consciousness. Immersing yourself with plants for 48 hours is a great tool for us. The plants retune our brains to recieve new energetic frequencies and unite us with the whole cosmic plant universe. By physically ingesting a plant it becomes part of us. Their vibration can assist us in changing our cell structure. This enables us to fill ourselves with their light, love, and energy. When we are grounded and live an embodied life we have the ability to help others heal. There is beauty all around you if you choose to see it. Come soak up 75 acres of Carolinian Forest at the Gaia Hive. Unwind. Re-tune with the earth and all of her love. Join us for 2 weekends in 2019. Fall in love with life even more.
