Star Passages - An Astrological Rite of Passage

with Kaypacha, Nicole Lescher & Galaxy Earth Dancer

Reveal your true soul intention during a week long Astrological Rite of Passage at Sierra Hot Springs. On the cusp of an enchanted forest and beautiful alpine valley, we meet in ceremony to explore how Astrology and the Four Shields of Human Nature can guide us to distill our innate gifts. Kaypacha will take you on a visceral journey through your astrological chart and 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. In this program, you will approach Nature as your partner in exploring both astrological concepts as well as your own life purpose and meaning. Practices include council, setting intention, storytelling and reflection, 'yoga of astrology', an overnight solo under the stars and so much more! This camping program is designed for anyone wanting a deeper connection with one's self.

Space is limited to 12 participants. In order to balance the energies of our gathering, we will take the first six women, and the first six men (however you self-identify, which may also be gender neutral -- filling in either category). We will put registrations on hold after 6 identifying men and/or women sign up and any interested thereafter will be put on a waiting list.
* This is a camping program. Late summer nights in the mountains can get close to freezing at times, bathrooms and showers are available along with beautiful hot springs.

Food: Participants will enjoy three meals a day catered by the Sierra Hotsprings kitchen. Unique food restrictions can be accommodated (gluten free, vegan, vegetarian).

Preperation: Participants will be required to send their full name, date, place and time of birth so an individual astrological birth chart can be prepared in advance. To be sent in after registration to:
