Walking Between the Stars: A Weekend Spiritual Retreat, Pagan Style

Walking Between the Stars: A Weekend Spiritual Retreat, Pagan Style

Imagine a weekend where you are cared for spiritually, in ceremonies led by a shaman elder.

Envision a pagan retreat! 

Ritual will range from peaceful to ecstatic to transformative to very ol’ fashioned witchy to solemn to funny.

Escape the grind and take care of you.  A two day ceremony to:
* Spiritually refuel and rejuvenate.
* Center into authentic self.
* Be immersed in Divine love.
* Receive insight about your goals, challenges, and your life in general.
* Get covered in stardust!

Suitable to all levels, no experience needed. E.g., the above centering into self is suitable whether you’ve never felt the real you, want to deepen your sense of self more than ever, are a bit un-centered because of a crazy schedule, or …

Drawing on 25 years experience as a spiritual healer and ritualist, I’ll use time-honored shamanic modalities. A lot of the weekend ritual will be channeled to meet the needs of attendees. Each person also receives personal guidance and direct spiritual transmissions.

We who are Fey-touched often find self, Divinity, and power when playing in other realms. During our weekend together, we’ll be walking between the stars.

This relaxing exhilaration will occur just outside Meadville, Pennsylvania, Sat & Sun, AUGUST 18 & 19. We are in ritual each day from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. (with an hour break for lunch). The rest of the weekend we can hang out together, or wander off on our own to play or ponder or nap—it’s up to the individual. 
I’ve heard the following accommodations are affordable and pleasant, but I can’t make endorsements. Motel Six (814) 724-6366 / Wynken, Blynken, and Nod (B&B) (814) 337-2018 / Azalea House (B&B) (814) 337-8883 / Holiday Inn Express (814) 724-6012 / Brookdale Campgrounds (814) 789-3251

This is a lovely rural—though very conservative—area.

Having fun learning digital art the past few weeks. I made the banner for this event using an app called Procreate. The three spheres are photos of pieces I’d painted on silk. I drew the calligraphy right in the app—great app for $5! Francesca De Grandis

    I know this is last minute, but is it too late to get in on this? You are almost a 6 hour drive and my old Toyota has 220,000 miles on it, but I’m feeling pulled.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      Come, come come. Yes!

      • Corrine says:

        Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I’m throwing caution to the wind and having faith my car will make it. Bee-sides, when drawing cards to see if I should risk the drive, I got a ‘pampering’ card. Yep. I’m going for it. I can’t wait to meet you Live and In Person. I come bearing freshly extracted honey from Southeastern Pennsylvania…

        • Francesca De Grandis says:

          Yahooooooooooo! I am excited, we will have fun. Unfortunately, I do not eat honey, I am allergic to it, sigh. I love the stuff but cannot eat it. It is very sweet of you to think of bringing it though, I appreciate that a lot, thank you. See you sooooooooooon, look forwarding to beeing with you. 🙂

    O, I wish I could go! But with hubby not working means Phaedra doesn’t get any trips. Too much for gas and lodging. =( Hopefully you’ll have one next year and I can revel in ritual with you all.

    • Francesca De Grandis says:

      oh  I wish you cld come, that would be cool. I won’t do one next year, sigh, may not do another for a coupla years. So few people attend (thus far I have two paying registrants and one scholarship) that doing it more often would not leave me time and energy to earn enuf for my groceries and other basics. Argh!!! But I love being with the few peop who come, we have an incomparable time, so I am really looking forward to it, I just can’t offer it often.
