Natural Awakenings Fairfield Cty/Housatonic Valley, CT

Healing the Earth, Healing Yourself

Valley Spirit Cooperative and Wellness Center invites you to experience a weekend of learning ancient sacred ritual and meditation from April 27-29 in Washington Depot. Instructor John Jackson, director of the Chamma Ling solitary retreat center in the Sangre de Christo mountains of Colorado, will lead the three-day event.

For thousands of years, the wise that have come before us have respected and connected with the forces of nature. If you yearn to reconnect, to live in harmony with the world we call our home, join for this weekend of learning ancient sacred ritual and meditation. You will work with the Tibetan smoke offering practices of sang chod and sur chod, and offerings to the beings of the waters to make peace with the forces of nature and with ourselves. These simple practices are done daily in Tibetan monasteries. Variations are performed throughout Asia by millions of people from all walks of life, lead to feelings of peace, connection, renewal and belonging in sacred Mother ESarth.

The event will take place on Friday from 5:30 to 7:30pm, Saturday from 1:30 to 6:30pm, and Sunday from 12:30 to 3:30pm. The fee is $275 per person.

Jackson has traveled throughout the world on sacred pilgrimage and retreat, and studied with many Tibetan masters. He teaches meditation and ritual throughout Europe, the Americas and online, and was a professor for over 20 years.
