October 5 – 22
October 5 – 28
This special tour will take us to the spiritual heart of North America. We will journey across this incredible continent, starting with an initiation at Mount Shasta then moving through Navajo country eastwards to the Grand Canyon where we will connect with another native tribe, the Havasupai, spending time in their homelands in the heart of this spectacular place, before journeying to the Hopilands. We will visit power place Sedona to attend Drunvalo Melchizedek’s newest five day workshop and also have a private meeting with him. The tour will include visits to sacred sites around Sedona and also the Grand Canyon and Mt Shasta, time with Hopi Elders Eric and Jane Polingyounma and their son Lance plus meditation and ceremony in sacred places.
Intro from Jeremy: To my mind Drunvalo is the father of the New Age and many of the most important teachers of modern times trace the root of their teachings back to the wisdom Drunvalo has brought through from the angels, his indigenous friends and his own research. Sedona is the most ancient and powerful landscape on the North American continent with many amazing and powerful sacred sites that can transform the body, heart and mind of those who visit and in return is a place in the world where collective prayers can be heard more deeply and brought into being. Mount Shasta is the equivalent of the world’s root chakra and one of the most energetically powerful and visually magnificent places on the planet, amongst my favourite four sacred sites.

DAY 1, Friday 5 October
Take off in Sydney (or your nearest international airport), fly to Los Angeles, USA. Due to crossing the international dateline, despite almost 15 hours of travel we will arrive in Los Angeles not long, by the clock, after we took off in Sydney. We will catch a connecting flight to Sacramento to be in the North of California just a short drive to Mount Shasta.
DAY 2, Saturday 6 October
After a good nights sleep and a leisurely breakfast we will drive to Mount Shasta, a scenic 4 hour drive. Mount Shasta is the root chakra of the world, and a major power centre. This spectacular mountain is deeply connected with the ascended masters, particularly Saint Germain and is an amazing place to immerse yourself in deep spiritual power and energy. For me it is one of the top four sacred sites of the world and one I have a deep love for following a beautiful healing experience on my first visit here. We spend time on the mountain enjoying her powerful energy to activate transformation. (B)

This is a brand new workshop and is the result of Drunvalo’s entire life’s understanding of the nature of human consciousness.
