how a ropes challenge strengthens you and your team
Sacred Grove Retreat Center operates as a personal growth and leadership facility. Located on 11 scenic acres in the countryside of Cabarrus County, North Carolina, Sacred Grove Retreat Center offers a place for individuals and groups to gather, experience adventure, reflect, bond, focus, and grow.
Sacred Grove Retreat Center offers facilities and amenities for retreats and special events, as well as several lodging options for personal and group getaway experiences.
The most exciting addition, the ropes challenge course, is the perfect tool for leadership, team, and personal development.
Whether you seek to grow through quiet inner reflection or learn to overcome outward challenges, Sacred Grove Retreat Center is the place for you!
Sacred Grove Retreat Center offers a variety of in-house retreats as well as space for you to create your own corporate, educational, wellness, or team building event. It is secluded, yet conveniently located for easy access from several major cities.
The Ropes Challenge Course presents a unique experience where groups come together to create effective teams and empower them through encouragement and team building exercise. It provides a safe, supportive atmosphere to bond, grow, and explore potential.
Sacred Grove Retreat Center has four climate-controlled lodging facilities to choose from – a hand-built Log House, the Grove House, the Thoreau Cabin, and the Baby Yurt. When you rent for the day, weekend, or week, you also get access to all the common areas.
This is an invitational call for Dancers of the Star Dance, a Sacred Visionary Dance for All People given by Spirit through the personal vision of John Pehrson. This three-day dance is about bringing balance to yourself, the land and Earth through fasting and prayer in movement. The Dance renews our connection to our Ancestors, the Star People, and our Cosmic Heritage. It is also about personal inspiration and growth, exploring new potentials and possibilities, finding a new path, or making a needed course correction to realign with our Life Purpose. It is about stepping fully into your power, and a powerful way to accelerate spiritual progress, personally and collectively.
Whether male or female, we each have a masculine and feminine side. Everything in the spiritual and material world dances in an interwoven flow of male and female energy. When we are out of balance, our energies are scattered resulting in the experience of chaos and disconnect with Source. At this time in Creation, we are encouraged, men and women, to RE-MEMBER WHO WE ARE!
As Divine Beings, our journey contains spiritual and interdimensional components. When we dance, we raise our vibration, shifting consciousness into awareness of these aspects reflected in all relationships and, significantly, the relationship with our self. THIS IS THE PATH TO WHOLENESS. Last year clearly offered the opportunities to reflect upon what is out of balance in all relationships, both personally and collectively. 2018 is the Year of the Divine Feminine ushering in the Energies that will support us in our process of coming into balance with every aspect of ourselves. IT IS FROM THIS PLACE OF BALANCE AND EXPANDED CONSCIOUSNESS THAT WE CAN CREATE AND MANIFEST A LIFE, RELATIONSHIPS, PLANET AND INTER-CONNECTED CIVILIZATION THAT IS TRULY REFLECTIVE OF OUR AUTHENTIC DIVINE SELVES!
I invite you to take a journey within and reflect upon what changes you would like to create and manifest in your life and that of the collective and JOIN ME IN DANCING THE 2018 STAR DANCE!
I express Deep Love and Gratitude for Robbie Warren Hill and the OtterDance Team for your support and willingness to sponsor the Star Dance again this year on SEPTEMBER 21-23, 2018 at Sacred Grove Retreat in Gold Hill, NC.
If you are called to serve as a Dancer or member of the Crew, please respond to this invitation or private message me. Feel free to share with anyone who may be interested in joining us.

Sacred Grove Retreat held our Plant Spirit Medicine class so perfectly for 8 straight days.
From the beauty of the land and fire circle to the yurt classroom setting to the student and teacher accommodations… all of our needs were met and exceeded. Ellen made everyone feel like Sacred Grove was our home away from home. Her warm spirit and genuine attentiveness and care throughout the entire week made the difference between a good week and a wonderful week. We at the Blue Deer Center are so grateful to have such a perfect place near Charlotte to host our PSM Healer Training in the coming year. Thank you, Sacred Grove Retreat!
