'THE SACRED SHIELDS OF INITIATION'

'I want to mention just a little bit about the power of our circle.  As we are preparing for our gathering, one thing is very clear to me, that we have moved through many lifetimes together.  There is a reason that we will all gather together this year.  I really did see so very many of you in that vision.  It was very inspiring.  We were all vastly different than we are now. We have grown so much since then.'  ~Lynn Andrews

 The Program

About Chapel Rock

Chapel Rock in Prescott Arizona

Being at Chapel Rock is a breath of fresh mountain air, with the scent of pines, a vista of massive boulders and nearby mountains, and a mild climate. A restful, rejuvenating setting.  Chapel Rock is situated on 20 acres of wooded land in Prescott, Arizona. Tall Ponderosa pine trees, oaks, elms, and beautiful outcroppings of rocks characterize the rolling landscape of the Center.

 

What to Bring

The Arizona desert in mid-July will be hot, with temperatures normally ranging from the 70’s at night to approx 90 degrees during the day. The rooms will be air conditioned, so have a light shawl or sweater for your shoulders. We will be working outside on the land as well. We suggest you bring the following items:

  • Power Deck Cards

    • red cloth to wrap your finished project
    • acrylic paints and brushes, colors that are sacred and meaningful to you

    • any other craft supplies you might want for decorating your project.
