about mount shasta

Mount Shasta, located near the Oregon border in northern California, holds the distinction of being one of the world’s preeminent sacred mountains. It is recognized as an eligible Native American cultural and cosmological property on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Mount Shasta’s vast antiquity and mythic relevance places its significance on par, historically and categorically, with other sacred sites found among the world’s oldest known civilizations, including the temples and pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge, the Mayan pyramids, and Machu Picchu.

From a philosophical and spiritual standpoint, Mount Shasta is far more powerful and impressive than anything ever built by man. It is a Creator-made temple and monument, half a billion years old. In an abstract geological sense, Mount Shasta is still alive and under construction–and it will continuously erupt, regenerate, and change forms far into the future.

Native Americans have observed Mount Shasta as a sacred mountain from time immemorial; they viewed the mountain and its surroundings as holy ground; it is thought to be one of the first earthly places created by the Great Spirit. In the past, no one but medicine men or women climbed up the mountain beyond the tree line. It was thought to be too powerful for ordinary people to visit, and inhabited by hosts of potentially dangerous spirits and guardians who could harm a person who traveled up the mountain unprepared.

Today experts recognize that these “sacred sites” around the world influence human consciousness and other living organisms in a number of unusual and remarkable ways. They have become colloquially known as ancient “power spots,” places where people commonly experience unusual phenomenon such as UFO-related activity, portals into other dimensions, consciousness-altering experiences, and other paranormal-phenomenon.

When one enters into a sacred site of so-called “powerful energy,” the mind, body, and spirit are instantly affected. The energy at these places can be felt, sensed, dowsed, photographed, and measured with scientific instrumentation.

The spiritual use of these major “power spots” around the world is now beginning to be thought of as the unifying influence behind the rise of human civilization through ascension. A visit to the mountain could be your opportunity for mental clarity, emotional release, and spiritual liberation.

Join Mandy Trapp for this sacred pilgrimage to Mount Shasta, California.  Between deep communal connections and time spent in silence, your path of healing, and self-discovery will organically begin to reveal itself to you. Your journey, however, begins the moment you say "yes" to this grand adventure of the heart and will continue to unfold long after your return home. Mount Shasta is truly one of those places that calls you when, and only when you are ready.

With nourishing accommodations set in the natural surroundings of Shasta county, you will begin each day with a gentle, yet powerful yoga practice as you watch the sun rise on the snow-capped peak of the mountain. Beginning each day with intention, awareness and gratitude, will chart your course for the events of the day where we will visit one of the sacred sites of Mt. Shasta for journeying, meditation, and ceremony. From breakfasts, to picnic lunches and family dinners at the end of a long and powerful day, our personal chef will prepare only the most loving and nourishing foods to cleanse and energize your body, mind, and spirit. And just before you drift off into the land of deep sleep and wild and wondrous dreams, we will come together to learn, heal and be inspired by one another through the power of story.
