Creating Sacred Spaces

With Justin Ram Das Logan, LMT, IKYI and Michael "Pondhawk" Gulbrandsen

July 12 - 14, 2024


There is a unwavering connection between sacred spaces and the renewal of our inner self and spirit. Many ancient practices help eliminate negativity and create a welcoming and comfortable environment for your daily life. During this weekend, you will learn time-honored techniques that enable you to stand strong in your sovereignty, keeping yourself, your home, and your land clear and revitalized.


Over three transformational days we will practice techniques for blessing and clearing existing spaces, finding and creating sacred spaces, and learn ways to harness the energy of those spaces. Together we will:

  • Create sacred spaces of all kinds—altars, gardens, havens, rock formations and medicine wheels
  • Build a personal Fairy Garden to bring home
  • Clear spaces through herbs, prayer, feathers and crystals, and the sounds of nature; you will bring home a basket of items with which to clear your own space, including smudging spray, selenite wand, feather, sage and palo santo
  • Bless spaces with musical instruments
  • Find sacred spaces as we wander through the woods
  • Create a safe haven in our Fire Circle
  • Practice Kundalini yoga, meditation and breath work to clear yourself and build a strong field and space around you
  • Enjoy a Sound Journey

Throughout we will be releasing old, unneeded energy—both in ourselves and in our environment—and bringing in a sense of peace and happiness into our surroundings.


  • Intimate setting with personal access to the teachers
  • Interactive sessions with question and answer periods
  • Shamatha and guided meditations
  • Delicious all-vegetarian meals with locally sourced ingredients
  • Option to extend stay on Personal Retreat
  • Extensive library of dharma books
  • Expansive wooded grounds with beautiful paths, flora and fauna



There are no prerequisites for this program; it is appropriate for all.
