STAR PASSAGES with Kaypacha
An Astrological Rite of Passage in Nature
June 14-19, 2016
During this 6-day camping retreat in Utah’s breathtaking Canyonlands, we will explore Astrology through our innate connection with the Natural World. Surrounded by expansive views, Cottonwoods, and the beauty of the desert along Professor Creek near Arches National Monument, we will take a fascinating and visceral journey through your astrological chart, divined and interpreted by master astrologer, Kaypacha. Rite of Passage guides Nicole Lescher and Galaxy Dancer will facilitate a series of explorations in Nature to bring you into a deeper connection and understanding of your natal chart and all of its potential. Practices include ceremony, storytelling and reflection, the “yoga of astrology”, nature walks, journal writing, and a personal solo journey camped out on the land. Kaypacha will offer insights into your unique astrological blueprint and personal evolution. In this program you will approach Nature as your partner in exploring both astrological concepts as well as you own life purpose and meaning. We will learn about the ecology of the land and its ancient inhabitants, including a hike to view petroglyphs. This program is designed for anyone wanting a deeper connection with their true Self in a natural setting: unplug and savor Nature’s gifts!
