Retreats & Events

Sacred Grove Retreat Center is situated on 11 wooded acres and combines natural beauty and comfort to provide a safe and supportive space for events of all kinds. The expertly designed ropes challenge course provides an exciting, safe, and supportive space to use for personal development, and team building events.

Guests connect with nature by hiking scenic trails, taking a meditative walk on the labyrinth or enjoying the beauty of the butterfly garden. After sunset, the stars are the backdrop for magical bonfires and drum circles. An extensive metaphysical library in the Grove House offers books for deeper knowledge on a variety of subjects.

Sacred Grove Retreat Center has six climate-controlled rental facilities to choose from – a hand-built Log House, the Grove House – the primary retreat home, the Thoreau Cabin, the Baby Yurt, and the Grandmother and Empowerment yurts.

Our newest addition to the property, the Ropes Challenge Course presents an exciting venue for team building and leadership development. Working together, your team members will stretch personal limits and build group cohesiveness, while developing skills in leadership, goal setting and decision-making. Physical strength and fitness are not a prerequisite for achieving success on our course.

Conveniently located near the Uwharrie National Forest and Morrow Mountain State Park, Sacred Grove Retreat Center gives the feeling of being secluded while being a short driving distance from major cities such as Charlotte, Winston Salem, and Greensboro. Raleigh, Chapel Hill, and Durham are two hours or less away and Asheville is under three hours away.

If you choose to rent the Grove House or the Log Home, you can add on a yurt to use as your meeting or workshop space. These magical round structures allow participants to sit in a circle, which promotes connectivity and creativity. Both yurts are heated and air-conditioned, and Sacred Grove Retreat Center provides 6 ft. tables and chairs. Catering is also available upon request.

Star Dance Medicine Dance with Margarita Davita @ Sacred Grove Retreat
Sep 21 @ 12:00 pm – Sep 23 @ 5:00 pm

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.

With Love & Gratitude – Margarita DiVita
