This particular eclipse will be super charged and offer an exciting opportunity for a cosmic reset! Join us on the evening of this great Solar Eclipse/Black moon where you will be guided in a short guided meditation followed by a sound-bathe layout with the sounds of the gongs, bowls and chimes.
Cost: $15 cash at the door. Please arrive in silence at 7:20, to enter, set up and begin at 7:30pm.

Heart of Bhakti Retreat: Three days of tending to your inner garden…
with Prem Vidu, Cassandra ‘Ma’ Bright & guests.
Thursday August 31st 6pm – Sunday Sept 3rd 4pm…In Pine AZ.

The path of Bhakti has been called the path of devotion, the path of feelings, and/or the path of the heart. Devotion is directly connected to trust.
– Do you trust…(God, the Universe, Great Spirit, Ma,Truth, Lover, you fill in the blank)…enough to let go and open your heart more?
– Do you have the courage to face what lives in your heart and all it’s secrets?
Through mantra, meditation, self-inquiry, and sound healing we will journey into deeper acceptance of the veiled aspects of ourselves which we have thus far denied. With all happening aimed at revealing and setting free more love in our system. So come on an adventure into your own heart, and the hearts of your brothers and sisters. Relax, sing, share, and fill your cup. Jai Ma!
Cost: Early Bird prior to Aug 15th – $375. Regular price – $435.
Includes dorm-style lodging, amazing organic food, lots of kirtan, inner-healing work, group Shamanic sessions/Hands-on Ananda Spiritual Healing by request, nature walk, & dip in the Verde river.
