                        Waking Up More Love

                          with Shakti Durga


   Sun 24th September - Sun 1st October 2017

                       

This Navaratri we will travel to the Mountains of Colorado to awaken the divine mother Parvati within the earth and activate energies that affect the entire planet, and the planet's place in the galaxy and greater universe.

Shakti Durga is being guided by Durga to do specific light work during the time of this retreat. During a visit to the retreat site, Shakti Durga received guidance that the nature sprites and devas of the area need some help, that the area is in need of spiritual awakening, to promote a higher consciousness in all living beings here, and to then promote new ways of balance between all parts of nature and humanity.

 Durga is also Parvati, she who was born of the mountains. Durga is going to do things during our week to wake up more than just the mountains, she is activating some energies that affect the entire planet, and the planet's place in the galaxy and greater Universe.

We are coming to the mountains to be conduits through which the Divine wakes them up, just as Mount Kailash, Uluru and parts of Sedona are awake. Durga has given guidance about this. Thus, we are going to do it during Navaratri, which is one of the most powerful times for Durga, Parvati and the mountain energies.


We will also be looking at heart math derived work, seeing how, when we are in our hearts and in a state of love, what is created is a toroidal field of energy that is a thousand times stronger electrically and five thousand times stronger magnetically than the field of energy created by the brain. Is it any wonder mystics of all ages who seek connection with all that is, have focused attention on the heart? And what do you suppose happens in a culture where the heart is shut down and the toroidial flow of energy that connects us to everything ceases to operate? And what affect does this have on our surroundings, on nature, on the weather?  

In this retreat we will be looking at how to activate our light bodies, in turn this then puts us into the necessary state of consciousness to be able to effectively activate the Earth energies, not just on our retreat, but which can be repeated wherever we go. It is an exploration of the effect of unity and the strength of deliberate loving intent to raise consciousness and bring a new reality into physical manifest Earthly form.

Come and share in a life-changing, planet affecting series of spiritual activations and initiations that are both personal and transpersonal.  This is a retreat for initiates; initiations available at the retreat.

NOTE:
Beaver Creek is 8,100 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level and so altitude acclimatisation is advisable.  The major cause of high altitude sickness is going too high too fast. We recommend that you spend 1 or 2 days in Denver at 5,130 feet (1,560 meters) above sea level to make your acclimatisation to Beaver Creek easier and consider the following guidelines to avoid any potential problems.


During your time in Denver, rest up or if you are feeling well, take a walk to a higher area during the day to assist with acclimatisation. “Climb high and sleep low”.

If you begin to show symptoms of altitude illness in Denver (which is unlikely), don't go higher to Beaver Creek until symptoms subside.

Keep in mind that different people will acclimatise at different rates. We encourage you to take care of yourself and listen to your own body.

Stay properly hydrated. Acclimatisation is often accompanied by fluid loss, so you need to drink lots of fluids to remain properly hydrated.

Take it easy; don't over-exert yourself when you first get up to altitude. Light activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating the symptoms.

Avoid tobacco and alcohol and other depressant drugs including, barbiturates, tranquilizers, and sleeping pills.


You may wish to arrive in Beaver Creek a day or 2 before the retreat as well, if so you can contact The Charter at Beaver Creek direct (https://www.wyndhamvacationrentals.com/colorado/beaver-creek/charter-beaver-creek-resort) for extra nights accommodation or somewhere else in Beaver Creek, Colorado.
