The Serpent is Calling...October 2009

Serpent Mound Retreat October 2009

Come for an enchanting weekend in the space of the Serpent Mound. Join us as we unlock more of the Mystery of the Serpent through Sacred Ceremony, Song and Creative Art. Be the Living Magick that you are as we activate deep memory and call Love further to the forefront of Life in this moment. Dissolve blocks in the supportive, safe and joyful care of Priestesses of the Goddess.

Purify through a Sweat Lodge Ceremony; allow the energy of the Ohio landscape to open your heart as it transforms itself during the season of release. Remember who you are as ancestral earth and star energy flows through private ceremony at the Serpent Mound. Attune to your heart’s voice and listen to it as it sings through your body. Reverently meet the nature spirits of the land and forge a deeper connection to your own playful spirit through hands on creative arts.

Ohio is the known as the Heartland; even the shape of the state resembles the image of the heart. The Serpent Mound in Southern Ohio is one of the oldest effigy mounds in the known world and holds many secrets. Sitting inside a crater from an ancient meteor explosion, the Serpent Mound lies on the same earth energy line that runs straight through England’s Glastonbury Tor, Stonehenge and beyond.

Join me along with the magickal Terri “Sings With Ravens” Rivera, the mystical Kellianna, the wise Ross Hamilton and the extraordinary cuisine of Persephone & George from Raw Passion Bistro, as we gather in the inspiring forested Chalets of Woodland Altars and embark on a journey of ancient remembering and new found celebration!

33200 State Route 41

Peebles, Ohio 45660

Join Terri Rivera, Kellianna, Valarie Endemann, and Ross Hamilton, author of

The Mystery of the Serpent Mound: In Search of the Alphabet of the Gods

for a sacred weekend of music, workshops, ceremony and celebration at beautiful

Woodland Altars in Peebles Ohio.

Friday night: we will open our circle with a ritual cleansing

through each of the elements. We'll get to know each other around a Community Potluck. Later that evening we will gather for a fireside concert with Terri Rivera and Kellianna.

Saturday: experience the power of making your own Spirit Doll with Valarie Endemann. Author Ross Hamilton will join us Saturday to talk about the Serpent Mound and it's mysteries, and then later that evening we will go to Serpent Mound for private evening ceremony. There is an optional sweat lodge following the Serpent Mound ceremony, led by Terri. Our fire circle and lodge are located on privately owned land adjacent to the Serpent Mound. This sacred land is a part of the ancient Serpent Mound complex, before there were borders and boundaries, and we are honored at having the opportunity to gather here and celebrate.

Sunday morning we will gather for our closing SpiritSong circle, led by Kellianna.

We will enjoy brunch together after closing ceremony, then it's time for packing up.

We are doing something different with the food this year. We will have great organic vegan/vegetarian food prepared for us. We would ask everyone to bring a dish to share at our Friday evening Community Potluck dinner.

Breakfast will be continental style, set up in each of the cabins, and we will enjoy Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday brunch created by our amazing cooks.
