BLUE RIDGE, GEORGIA

Blue Ridge, Georgia

Friday, November 1 - Monday, November 4

On the most witchy weekend of the year when the veil separating us from the spirit world is its thinnest and the energy is sparked with magic, we will be meeting in the Blue Ridge Mountains to take an elevated journey deep within. Purposely scheduled with the election, the school year and the holidays in mind, this retreat is meant to be a pause from the chaos and a space to re-attune to self, safe community and spirit. Together, we will remember our own individual intuitively divine gifts as we usher forward a new way of being, connecting and ultimately, presence. Through practice and play, this retreat is designed to re-align your mind, body and soul.

ABOUT THE AREA

Originally called "Land of the Blue Mist" or, Shaconage, by the native Cherokee tribe who inhabited the area for more the 10,000 years, the Blue Ridge Mountains are known for their  blanket of atmospheric blue haze.  The Blue Ridge Mountains are apart of the Appalachian mountain range which spans from Canada through Southern North America and is comprised of ranges that include the Berkshires, the Catskills, the Great Smokies and more. Among some of the oldest on Earth, the Appalachian range is home to billion-year rocks and in the Blue Ridge Mountains you can find crystals and gems such as amethyst, citrine, garnet, quartz and tourmaline.

 

Once considered an elite health resort due to its pure mineral waters, now named one of the 2022 South's Best Mountain Towns by Southern Living Magazine, Blue Ridge, GA has so much to offer. Sitting on 106,000 acres of Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge is marked by the entrance to the Appalachian Trail.  Just 90 minutes from Atlanta, downtown Blue Ridge boasts boutiques, antique stores, upscale restaurants and the area as a whole is home to many outdoor activities.  Lucky for its visitors, Blue Ridge, GA is still in the mid-60's and low 70's during the daytime in early November. 

ABOUT OUR HOME

Less than 5 minutes from downtown Blue Ridge, our stunning chalet sits on 14 acres and towers over massive short-range mountain views. Our home boasts a main house, a carriage house, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, hot tub, sun deck, seated fire pit, and layered porches w/ stacked stone fireplaces, outdoor dining and outdoor kitchen!

 

The main house consists of 5 king bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 1 half bath on the main level. Inside, the space is illuminated with natural light coming from walls of glass and NANO sliding doors that fold flat in both the main level living room as well as the terrace level den. On the main level we have open concept living, kitchen and dining with a large dining table and an eat-in island.  The main level living room boasts over 30' ceilings with a large fireplace. Downstairs, find another terrace level large living room with another fireplace and walk-out terrace patio.

The carriage house is just steps from the main house and hosts both the queen bedroom and the bunk room as well as a full bathroom.

ITINERARY

With three intuitive group offerings lead by Jill per day, Ritual, Practice and Ceremony, and ample free time to explore or take part in a private offering, our retreat is the perfect balance of deep internal work and integration time. We will be learning and exploring the energy of Scorpio season as well as the Scorpio New Moon throughout this retreat which will energetically lend a hand to all spiritual, shadow and phoenix rising themes and offerings.

During free time you have opportunities to book a private session with Mackenzie or a private photoshoot with Augustina. You may also drive into town, go for a hike or simply enjoy the amenities of our home.

Breakfast and dinner will be seated family style, while lunch will be an informal spread to keep us nourished all day long.

YOUR SUPPORT

TRIP LEADER

"My purpose in this lifetime is to help individuals find their power again. Through extensive intuitive healing gifts such as mediumship, energy healing through touch and acting as a clairvoyant channel, I am able to bring all dimensions into a healing session.

I am here to support you, as together, we shed light on the cracks that are ready to be filled with gold; to glue your sense of inherent worth and self-trust back together again.

It continues to be my daily joy to work with folks of all ages and cultural backgrounds.

As a Spiritual Advisor, I work with a wide range of intuitive tools to support you along your journey.

From your visualizations during energy healing, to communicating with the dead, to your downward dog and back to our breath - I am here to guide you through the spaces in between."

"When I was first introduced to this way of work and living, of living a life that is mindful and deeply connected to spirit, I wasn’t ready to fully accept that there was more to me than I was able to embody at the time. Through working with other healers, EMDR therapy, connecting with nature, yoga, breathwork and becoming a mother, I am able to fully step into the magic I was searching for as a child.

While I now know that I am indeed a powerfully creative healer, I am also aware that healing is a life long journey. I now am able to parent the self doubting child within me through finally finding my voice and embodying my purpose.

Through my work with my clients I am able to remind them of their power to change their lives. Through using my voice in session to channel information from other realms, my clients are able to feel deeply connected, seen and heard. It is my hope that my clients allow themselves to forever stay curious and to always trust in their own voice."
