We recently had the opportunity to hold a workshop at COE as part of the Essential Life Series. Our experience there was fantastic. This location is well set up with everything one could require to host a number of people. This is such a beautiful site. All the bathrooms and sleeping rooms were very clean. The food was incredible! If a cookbook was available for the the lovely meals we shared in, it would now be in my kitchen! What really made this place awesome was the staff. There was always a friendly Hello and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. You could tell they all loved being there. I certainly felt very welcome and would recommend it to any who are considering an event.
" . . . we were blessed with the opportunity to honor Summer Solstice during our Wise Woman Solstice program - guided by the incredibly gifted healer Sarah Salter-Kelly. It was a powerful weekend of celebrating our femininity and an opportunity for profound transformation.
This weekend we found ourselves surrounded and assisted by the forces that lie in nature. In the sacred setting provided within and around the Sheiling Mountain Lodge, we worked closely with the Divine energies within and surrounding us. As a facilitator, Sarah has a wide range of spiritual skills and tools at her disposal, including (but not limited to) journeying, meditation and sharing circles. She is also a truly gifted ceremonialist and shared her gift with us through both water and fire ceremonies.
This celebration, this experience, truly captured what Essential Life Series is all about: Awareness, Co-creation and Expansion. The synchronicity of the water dragon being our theme (or mascot!) and the fact that the weekend revolved so heavily around both the water and fire elements speaks to this connection. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Sarah and to each and every one of our Wise Woman participants for creating and holding a space for such amazing healing and transformation to occur!
