Celebration of Love

February 8th - 14th 2008
The 4th annual 'Celebration of Love' was held in Lexington Virginia at SOUTH RIVER HIGHLANDS farm in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. What an incredible experinece we shared! Each day we looked at an aspect of the 'Healing Power of Sacred Love'. We shared in the vision of EXPANDING LOVE every day of the year. We opened the week's event schedule with a discussion of self-love, self-healing and self-actualization as a path for world healing and the evolving of all life. During the week, we worked with the six new sacred geometry forms whose vibrational frequencies could help us do just that. An explanation of the purpose of these powerful symbols and how these tools can be used was presented.

We were deeply honored to welcome back Gale Gray (www.serendipityseminars.com www.2012NBeyond.com) from Kingston, Washington who facilitated 2 seminars designed to deepen & expand your energy field & spiritual awareness. One evening Gale was joined by Carole Glenn (www.2012NBeyond.com, www.lifeharmonymusic.com) from Silverdale, Washington to facilitate an evening discussion and behind the scenes look at a developing workshop that helped us look at skills we can use to move into the future better equipped to handle the accelerated changes on Earth. Antonia Albano (www.southriverhighlands.com) led participants through clearing, healing, activating and aligning the body's energy fields. she talked about what it means to be an Emmisary of Love and shared her understanding of evoling the Chakra system to increase our abilities to interact and work with higher and more intense frequencies.

This non-denominational week was filled with powerful experiences. All out activities are intentionally independent of each other so you could come as their lives and jobs permitted. Many were able to come for several days so that there was a lovely continuity of energy. The highlight was the introduction to the intentionally created power spot, 'State of Grace Pulsation Center', who's healing energy has been amplified by the placement of sacred geometry on the ground and the sculptures of the first two of the Divine Symbols™ along with the marked path of the 'Grace Walk' in the shape of one of the Divine Symbols™. We expect the 'State of Grace' hilltop will be fully completed by midsummer.

We hope your plans will include the Celebration of Love 2009!
