Connecting Us to All that Is~

April 24, 25, 26, 2020

The Collective Consciousness Conference is a weekend retreat in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, focusing on increasing our awareness of connection to self, community, and nature. Marjorie Hilliard and myself will be facilitating a variety of workshops and sessions that will provide you with specific tools and techniques, improving your health and wellbeing for your body, mind and spirit. Through various forms of meditation, Qigong energetic body movement practices, the Magic PILL (Play, Imagination, Laughter, and Love), herbal infusion creations, open discussion groups, shamanic journeying, and sacred fire ceremony, we will be coming together as a conscious collective for the healing of ourselves, our community, and our planet.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Autism Speaks and the Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research.

**Rate: $250.00/per person.  (Does not include lodging for two nights or meals.)

Includes 3 day conference with teachings from professional experienced certified facilitators located at the private Mountain Breeze home and retreat center, nestled in the Smoky Mountains near Nantahala Outdoor Center and Bryson City, N.C.  There will  be light snacks, coffee, tea, and water offered each day, and a continental breakfast on Sunday.
Limited space available, so booking will be based on a first come/first serve basis.
