“Dana, I want to tell you how much it meant to Todd & I that you came to London to officiate at our wedding. The exquisite flute piece you played with Sir Elton John’s string quartet, before the ceremony was ethereal, and brought a joyful energy to the celebration. Your presence and beautifully eloquent words opened the hearts of everyone there, bringing a deep spirituality to the room. Our commitment seemed doubly blessed because of your powerful, loving nature. Thank you for making our wedding a beautiful and deeply meaningful experience; it is one we will never forget!!!”

Journeys to Sacred Sites Around the World
The truth is that everywhere is a Sacred Site; it is only a question of whether we are able to experience the energy there or not. Ultimately, there is an equal amount of power, energy and peace available in a supermarket parking lot as in the most holy and sacred temples. However, until many of us are able to fully realize this, we may need ‘power assists’. In my experience, the intense power available at a Sacred Site can allow us to open and reconnect to previously hidden aspects of our selves. I love to share my experience of places that I have found to be the most profound. I organize trips, retreats and adventures to several of my favorite Sacred Sites several times a year. I would also love to hear about your experiences at these and/or other Sacred Sites that you have found meaningful.
India: Divine Mother Festival
Often called ‘The Holiest Place on Earth’, and considered by many to be the abode of Lord Shiva, it is located in a remote area of the state of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India. Herakhan is a place of immense physical beauty and deep peace. A very pure and magical river, the Gautama Ganga, flows through the deep gorge where Herakhan is located. The main source of this river surfaces from a hole in the ground about 2 km from the village. Bathing in this water is considered by many to be a phenomenal experience of deep cleansing and healing. It is believed that Mahavatar Babaji materialized in a cave adjacent to Herakhan in his most recent incarnation, and a temple has been dedicated to him there. This cave is at the foot of Mt. Kailash (in India) which is now the site of 9 Temples to the Divine Mother. Whenever you feel called, please join me on this sacred journey to open yourself to the healing energy of the Divine Mother in India.
Those who study Global Energies, Earth ley lines and ‘gaia chakras’ all agree that Mt. Shasta is a significant and powerful site. Some claim it is a ‘heart chakra’, some call it a ‘throat chakra’. It is not necessary to be an expert in these matters to immediately determine that something amazing and really is emanating from the entire mountain, as well as the surrounding region. Located in the extreme north of California, Shasta is surrounded by huge expanses of Forest. It is an astoundingly huge mountain in its physical size (l4,000’+ in elevation) and an immense circumference at the base. Shasta has always been a holy site to the indigenous peoples of the region, and has a long tradition of attracting a variety of spiritual groups that do their work there. We have found that the energy of Shasta seems to help open portals for individuals and groups to access deeply whatever inner material is needed. The purity of the earth, air and water in the area of Mt. Shasta seems to have been preserved for the benefit of all who want to be nurtured by it. We have been facilitating a 9 day Retreat in Mt. Shasta for each of the the last seven years. See Mt. Shasta Retreat for more information. It is held every year in the Spring (early May).
Bali: Journey to Creativity
Bali is an intriguing place and a fascinating energy to experience. The fabric of Balinese society is deeply woven with the creative arts, and with deep devotion to God and family. Puja (prayer) offerings are everywhere – used in business, homes and farmers’ fields as a way of honoring God. Every building contains a temple as an integral part of it. Bali’s population includes a heavy concentration of artists, musicians, carvers and dancers and for centuries these traditions and skills have been handed down and diluted very little. The energy of creativity seems to flow effortlessly from every cell of this island and it’s people, and I have found it to be a powerful and effective place to open to the healing power of one’s own creative process. I organize and facilitate a yearly ‘Journey to Creativity’ to Bali. Come to Bali to experience and deepen your own creative callings, waiting to be awakened in you.
