A retreat-style experience, Heart of the Desert takes you on a deep and vulnerable dive into your innermost realms. Medicine carriers, ceremonialists, & musicians Etheric, Bri of the Light, and Anahata guide you through sacred medicine ceremonies, intimate community connection, live medicine music, personal reflective practices, and more. Medicine offerings will include sacred ceremonies with Grandfather Medicine, Cacao, and Rapé.
This unique experience takes place October 22nd through 23rd in Las Vegas, NV, and guests are invited (and encouraged) to join us in our gathering space on the evening of October 21st for a communal potluck dinner to get acquainted with everyone. We have a limited amount of availability for those who would like to stay in the home and ceremony space that we will be using for this experience. We are offering optional community-style sleeping arrangements completely free of charge and on a first-come, first-served basis. Please inform us if you are wanting to discuss this option.
The intention of this experience is to bring you into deep connection with your heart and soul by disconnecting from your typical environment and immersing you in nature.
You are warmly welcomed as you are, whether that means joyous, sad, anxious, angry, etc., and you will be received with open, loving arms. All that we ask of you is to come with an open mind in return, willing to follow our lead into the vulnerability of transparent interaction, and honest self-expression. You will have the opportunity to commune with several plant teachers throughout this experience, including Grandfather, Rapé, and Cacao. Your heart, mind, and body will be gently opened through this experience, ready to give and receive loving awareness effortlessly, eagerly, and joyously.
We will take you to our sacred ceremonial location outside of Las Vegas, where we will all enjoy being immersed in ceremony in the heart of a beautiful desert landscape. Following ceremony, we will return to our house for the weekend to share dinner and connection. We will provide a post-ceremony dinner on Saturday, breakfast on Sunday, and a selection of organic fruits and vegetables. We invite everyone to bring food to share potluck style and ask that it be diet-friendly and vegan (dietary requirements listed here).
Your integrative process is important to us, so you will also receive post-immersion integration opportunities to ensure that you retain the value of what is received in sacred space with us.
This is such a special offering that we are SO grateful and honored to provide.
The invitation to join us in sacred, connected space is open to those that feel called to explore themselves and others in new, conscious, authentic ways. All are welcome here, with the understanding that the container we create is curated to be a safe, welcoming, and empowering cocoon.
We have several intentions for creating this experience:
If any one of these intentions matches with a need, desire, or prayer of yours, then this gathering may just be for you
*Attendees may arrive between 6:00pm and 10:00pm. This evening is intended for creating connections between everyone, and to allow guests to settle into the space together prior to our full day of ceremony. It is highly encouraged that guests arrive this evening.
The donation for this experience is offered on a sliding scale of $444-555 per person. This includes a consultation prior to the ceremony, all ceremonies during, communal stay in our home space, an organic, light breakfast & post-ceremony dinner, and integrative support following the immersion. Attendees will be responsible for additional food.
Guests will also need to bring their own sleeping accommodations. If you choose to sleep in our house, you will sleep community-style in the main room, so a sleeping pad/cot, blankets, and pillow are all needed.
To reserve your spot, the questionnaire on the registration form must be completed and a $200 non-refundable deposit is to be paid. Once these are received, we will reach out to you to schedule a phone consultation. The remainder of your payment is to be paid in cash on your arrival.

Tucked away between beautiful red rock views and a mountain peak backdrop, our unlisted location for ceremony is secluded and private, and offers plenty of space for exploration, solitude, and communal gathering as well. This location is set back about a mile from any main road, so you will want to be prepared with hiking shoes, plenty of water, light snacks, and toiletries in case you need to use the restroom. We will all hike in and out together, and the post-ceremony hike out will be done at nighttime - so bring a headlamp or flashlight.
You deserve to take a break from your typical routine, disconnect from the noise of the busy streets, and find solace in nature for a few days. Accept this invitation to find peace, expansion, activation, and unconditional love in the Heart of the Desert with us.
