ABOUT THE ICELANDIC SACREDNESS

Every aspect of our precious Mother Earth is sacred. Each country vibrates its distinctive frequency and by doing so, contributes to the world grid at large. Iceland is no exception. The land is like a young creative mother, the energy: raw, wild, and honest. It is the land of fire and ice, an alchemical mystery island surrounded by the North Atlantic Ocean ~ A Divine Eye in the Sea.  

Here, the four physical elements play with each other in a breathtaking symphony, calling forth the fifth element of Spirit within and all around. It is an island of sharp contrasts where the opposite forces come together in pure creation. 

ITINERARY OUTLINE

*SUBJECT TO CHANGE

As we journey into this beautiful country, under the full moon in September of  2019, we will be entering a transformational place of power and honesty.

Iceland‘s energy is potent, almost tangible, and the unique landscapes mesmerizing; black lava fields and soft mossy hills, marvelous waterfalls and bubbling hot springs, pouting geysers and active volcanoes under our feet! The whole island serves as a sacred nature temple, a radiant north star guiding us to the center of our authentic selves.

In the Blue Lagoon we will allow ourselves the time and space for all our group members to arrive and unwind and soak in the utter deliciousness of this world renowned bathing lake.

 

The warm water is rich in silica, algae, and minerals which soothe both body and mind. You can have lunch, at your leisure, in one of the Blue Lagoon’s restaurants. After a beautiful restorative day in the healing waters, it will be time to head back to Northern Light Inn to check-in at 3.pm.

Northern Light Inn is surrounded by picturesque black lava fields and soft green moss and is situated next to the power plant the Blue Lagoon owes its magic to. We have specifically chosen to spend our arrival day near the Blue Lagoon as to provide an enveloping atmosphere for us to harmonize our subtle energies, ground ourselves and let go of any residue fatigue we may have in our bodies after travelling. In the lagoon and during our welcoming gathering we can allow ourselves to completely relax into the embrace of this sacred new land that is welcoming us with open arms.

 

After our welcoming gathering a table will be waiting for us at Blue Lagoon’s Lava restaurant where we can enjoy an à la carte dinner together on our first night. Northern Light Inn offers free shuttle bus to and from the Blue Lagoon.

Towards the evening we will be entering the small village of Laugarvatn which will be our home and hold sacred space for us for the next four nights. The village is beautifully situated on the shores of Lake Laugarvatn or ‘The Bathing Lake’ in the heart of The Golden Circle. We will be staying in one of Iceland’s most famous buildings Héraðsskólinn idyllically overlooking the lake. The original school house built in1928 has served as a foundation for educational and cultural advancements throughout Icelandic history including hosting a famous Nobel writer as its guest. In 2014 it was renovated into a one-of-its-kind boutique hostel, preserving the charm of the old days.

Through free flow dance, laughing, soft yoga stretches, deep relaxation and healing sound meditation, Thórey will support you in letting go of that which no longer serves you, making space for more lightness in your life. With flowing meditation and sound healing she will guide you to calm your mind and listen to the Temple of your Soul, your miraculous body, both during movement and stillness. This day is also perfect for enjoying silence and time alone, a walk by the lake or a hike up the little forest trail opposite Héraðsskólinn. The hike offers a beautiful view over the lake and the surrounding landscapes.    

On this Friday the 13th, Venus and Sacred Goddess Day, we will allow yourself to be swept into ecstatic heart-centeredness and give your soul the room to breathe in love and gratitude and exhale everything that no longer serves. Let your hair down and celebrate your freedom on this Friday of Self-Love & Compassion 

Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths is only a few minutes walking distance from Héraðsskólinn. After an embracing day of self-love and reflection, we highly recommend ending the day relaxing in the warm waters. The steam saunas at Fontana have also become notorious for their authenticity, as the steam does not come in through pipes, but straight up from the earth and through the floorboards. You can hear the earth rumble under your feet!

Sacred Nature Immersion Day ♡ Full Moon

Saturday will be our longest excursion day, with beautiful sites and inspiring natural wonders. A perfect opportunity to embrace our inner explorer, the brave and humble journeyer who’s ready for the unknown and travels with an open mind and heart. Under the influence of the illuminating Full Moon, we will allow ourselves to go one level deeper in communication with Mother Iceland, journeying with the soulful intention to recognize our own authenticity in her mirroring depths. Hence, our Earth-guides on this quest will be the renowned magical waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss and the magnificent Reynisfjara beach. The striking beauty of this black volcano beach is enhanced by the iconic basalt column cliffs and the view over Reynisdrangar, dramatic spiky rock stacks jutting out from the sea. The nature we will encounter on this Sacred Immersion Day is truly moving and awe-inspiring.

 

At 9 p.m. we will sit in circle, and tune into and partake in the monthly Harmony Full Moon Peace Meditation where meditators from around Iceland (and other countries) meet in Spirit to meditate and pray for Peace within and without for the greatest good.  

Sites: Seljalandsfoss. Skógafoss. Reynisfjara.
