The Chalice Retreat
Santa Fe, New Mexico
April 28-May 1, 2023
A private weekend retreat honoring & celebrating the path of "The Beauty Way" and Medicine of the Rose.
I am thrilled to invite you to my personal home & new temple space in devotion to the spirit of Tea and Rose, which we have named "TeRosa Sanctuary," held in the heart of New Mexico.
The culture here is rich with magic in the earth and sky. You can feel the deep spiritual energy of land, it's medicine itself. The high desert expansiveness clears your mind and invites your soul into realms of deeper nourishment and awakening. Just being here purifies and supports you to be a vessel for beauty & creativity.
I can't wait to finally gather in person and anchor even more deeply all that we have been growing and weaving together over the last 6 months in our beautiful rose sisterhood.
We will eat delicious food, dance, laugh, cry, share, listen, play, make offerings to the land, and remember who we are and the heart of the wise, wild feminine within. For these days we will live temple life together, in love and reverence for the Sacred.
You will be tenderly held and guided throughout this weekend in ceremonial space by myself and my priestess / practitioner sister Baelyn who I live and tend this temple with here in New Mexico.
She is an incredible teacher of Cha Tao "The Way of Tea" and will be offering her medicine in various ways throughout our time together, including daily meditation and tea ceremony.
We have been studying and supporting each other on pilgramages to sacred sites throughout the world following the path of the Magdalene in Avalon, Egypt, China, France and Spain.
We look forward to guiding you through special rituals and practices we learned along our journey.
We've selected a very special chef who will be nourishing our bodies throughout the weekend with their kitchen magic, preparing delicious, healthy organic meals.
Arrival: Friday late afternoon for opening circle and dinner.
Departure: Monday after breakfast and closing circle.
