Our lives can be overwhelmed with the details of daily living. The amount of information being directed at us on a daily basis is never given an opportunity to be digested, assimilated and ultimately eliminated. Life can be lonely for the soul when our lives are too busy just existing.

Who can pause enough to make space for being insightful to our deeper longings? There is a profound desire to belong not just in our various roles, personalities or identities but to the deeper inner landscape of our soul—the willingness to open and reveal that essence of our inner light.

Come experience the mystical land of light and darkness with leader Laura Jane Mellencamp. Journey to northern Iceland, one of the most amazing places on earth. Take in powerful landscapes, including deep fjords, vast volcanic deserts, snowcapped mountains, and staggering waterfalls. Enjoy days of exploration, hiking, and practicing yoga evenings soaking in the outdoor hot tub under the mystical night sky as the brilliance of the Aurora Borealis northern lights are on full display. We invite you on a journey of deep personal connection while also spending time with others who share a mutual passion for our sacred mother earth.
