What you will learn through experience: How to fully Listen and Trust your Heart Drop into the stillness to open your higher senses Greater joy and freedom Heal and transform as you support others and they support you Find your own unique voice Harmonize and be supported by nature Feel the alignment within self Your core values as an embodied being of light How to sustain the collective consciousness grid long after we have parted company How to integrate current and future light infusions to uplift and support the body, mind and spirit.
ABOUT THE FLOW Once we begin this deep immersion experience, together, we hold the energy of the Sacred Heart and allow ourselves to align in Heart and Spirit. Join us for a remarkable, life altering seven day activation.
Transformational practices are designed to open you up to receive very high frequencies of light, light that transforms and uplifts. Our time together will begin by setting pure intention then aligning with that intention as we co-create with higher dimensional beings and deeply listen to what is ours to do and co-create.
Throughout this seven day experience, you will be encouraged to deeply listen to your inner voice and your knowing, and act on that knowing in the context of the group's intention.
Your facilitators will invite you into sacred configurations with others to amplify soul level awareness and to vision the way forward. The direction that have supported this activation sequence is to hold and anchor light in three particular locations around the Lake as we are guided, as we deeply listen to what is ours to do.
You open to:
Shift your awareness from mind to heart.
Sense and feel the subtle energies of the body-mind continuum.
Open to amplify a unified field of light for healing and transformation.
Amplify the light in the body.
Fully honor yourself and others in this new field of oneness.
Experience the true healing power and how to embody it for highest good.
Amplify the field of light that we are, and trust the knowing that guides us.
Just as in life, the retreat is a co-created experience where all are together and setting intention for our time together. Your primary facilitators for this retreat are Carol Fitzpatrick and Mark Torgeson, with Anne Michaude acting at the ground crew.
Together Carol and Mark have been creating transformational workshops, events and retreats since 2003.
Carol Fitzpatrick has been holding sacred space for the birthing of new paradigm community and working with individuals since 2003. Her great love is communing with the divine and flowing light and wisdom from the higher realms into the embodied state. She is a channel so once she opens up when we first get together, her part of the creation is to deeply listen to spirit and to hold sacred space for those in attendance. Through the facilitated process, we have learned over time is just how powerful intentionally created sound, music, and movement is when we are anchoring light into form as well. www.onenessofbeing.org/
Mark Torgeson has been a practicing Reiki Master and bodyworker for 27 years, and a musician for 40 years. He has produced over 32 albums of transformational music and sound which have aired on all continents. He facilitates workshops of Healing Sound, performs concerts of transformational music, and has cofounded Center for Planetary Awakening for raising consciousness in the new paradigm. Mark combines energywork, sound healing and music to create a foundation of safety and transformation for participants, gridworkers and the activation team. http://marktorgeson.com/
We rely on an experienced person with history in the region, as we are led to others representing other cultures, languages and specifically, heart to heart connections.
Our connection for this activation is our beautiful, amazing friend and co-creator, Anne Michaude. She grew up in Montreal. She has been a god send helping us navigate from afar. She'll be showing us the sacred activation points in and around Montreal.
