​Women’s Spiritual Pilgrimage to
Mount Shasta

with Rev. Connie L. Habash, LMFT
July 18-22, 2024
Mount Shasta, CA

Saskia Circle

 

Traveling to a sacred place renews our soul, and one of the most sacred places on the planet is Mount Shasta. It has been revered by indigenous peoples and spiritual seekers alike for centuries. With both stunning beauty and a palpable sense of the Great Mystery, Mount Shasta is my favorite place to travel on spiritual pilgrimage, and now I am sharing it with a small group of women ready to take a soul’s journey into nature.

We step out into a pilgrimage to listen to the Divine, seeking guidance; to see our lives anew; to connect more deeply to the planet; and to receive a vision for the next chapter of our lives.

In conscious and caring community, we will set our intentions, open our hearts, and set forth to sacred springs, glorious waterfalls, pristine meadows, alpine lakes, and majestic mountain tops around this ancient dormant volcano. This women’s pilgrimage will include yoga and meditation, deep reflection, sacred ceremony, and time together and solo to consider our lives and spiritual purpose, as well as how we might give back to the planet.

 

Included in your pilgrimage:

  • 4 nights accommodations in a magical home with stunning views of the mountain, just for our group
  • Daily yoga and meditation
  • Hiking (some moderately challenging, but most easy)
  • Privately catered meals, with whole foods for a range of dietary needs, from Thursday evening dinner through Monday morning breakfast
  • The Work That Reconnects
  • Ceremony for healing yourself and the planet
  • Walking the labyrinth, stargazing, soaking in the hot tub, and more!

The Mountain

Mount Shasta towers over the surrounding landscape at over 14,000 feet. The entire area is both a spiritual and recreational mecca, with ample beauty to explore. We’ll visit sacred springs on the mountain as well as the headwaters of the Sacramento River, at least 3 waterfalls, a couple alpine lakes, and take in amazing vistas. We’ll also visit the Mount Shasta Gateway Peace Garden.

Connie’s leadership is exceptional

Connie’s leadership is exceptional. Her seasoned experience as a group leader, therapist, minister/lover of life and attention to detail allowed me (a natural organizer and caretaker) to truly let go into “retreat” and receive the gifts of relaxation, rejuvenation, connection, and Nature’s Beauty.
