Saturday Morning Theme – Clear your mind and open your heart:

Qigong (8 am to 9am) – out in the open field – Experience moving chi, the energy of the Universe, through your body to become energized, focused and at peace. Enliven the garden within and around you. Facilitated by Jeremy Schewe.

Yin Yoga (9am to 10am) – out in the open field – facilitated by Joanie Lea Bailey, owner of the Gaia Den in West Virginia.  This yoga’s restorative flows are heart opening and relaxing. In addition, Joanie will be offering guided meditations based on group or individual need.

Love Cleanse Ritual (all day any day) – Wash away all that obscures the natural expression of your inherent love and light in the pristine Pigeon River. We suggest you face down stream and contemplate letting go into the flow the limiting beliefs that no longer serve you. Make it tangible by tossing a rock down stream for each limiting belief you release. Then turn and face upstream and welcome in all that you want to flow into your life.

Medicine of the Heart – Cacao Ceremony with JoJo Silverman (10am to Noon) (Limited to 40 participants) This heart activation journey includes ceremonial grade, hand peeled, cacao from Guatemala. Chocolate, as it’s often called, is a safe and legal plant medicine that can be an amazing assistant and catalyst in our awakening and self realization.

This special variety and potent dose of heirloom Cacao brings substantially more blood to the brain and heart, as well as activates the pineal gland. Combined with meditation and kirtan chanting we’ll create a powerful vibration to reconnect and remember who we are. Note – Be sure to eat lightly (or not at all) to allow for full and rapid absorption of Cacao.  To learn more visit DRcacaos.com
