Accommodation

You will be staying at Joyful Journey Hot Springs. This is a wonderful sacred area sheltered beneath the towering Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Come and care for yourself with gentle massage and body therapies and rejuvenate in the soaking pools.The Hot Springs Spa offers a wide variety of spa treatments including therapeutic and deep tissue massage, hot stone therapy, aromatic facials, natural body wraps, reflexology treatments and more.

The hot springs water is 100 percent artesian mineral water which comes out of the ground at over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The pools are gravity fed and naturally kept at temperatures between 98 and 110 degrees. Joyful Journey features overnight accommodations in the hotel and conference center as well as Eco-Lodging in the yurt and tipi village. Joyful Journey Hot Springs is a perfect place for romantic getaways, family vacations, retreats, conferences, weddings, and pure relaxation!

Many come here for the curative powers of the healing water, others for the clean peaceful energy that seems to permeate the area. One can sense joyful vibrations here, thus its name: Joyful Journey Hot Springs.

The pools

Although the water rises from the travertine springs at between 120 and 145 degrees, the pools temperature are maintained between 98 and 108 degrees. The water is a sodium bicarbonate type with significant levels of boron, calcium, lithium, and magnesium along with several other beneficial minerals.

Native American elders and spiritual masters from the Crestone area consider this area on the west side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains as one of the most sacred and energetically active places in North America. It is said that the water here is encoded with the energy of the earth from which it rises. Perhaps then, this water indeed is unique and special among all the hot springs of the state.

Lithium, noted for its calming effects, is reportedly also able to influence distribution of sodium and potassium. Boron is recognized for its benefits to brain function, the immune system, bones and joints.

Joyful Journey is one of the few places on earth with natural hot mineral water that does not have the “sulfur odor” that is often found in many hot mineral springs. The 98 degrees Fahrenheit pool is perfect temperature for those with low tolerance of hot water and you still get the benefit of the minerals. The 108 degrees Fahrenheit is perfect temperature for arthritis and joint and muscle issues.

Bella Retreats Colorado Yoga Retreat Program

Exploring Astrology Retreat

The bulk of this retreat will be spent engaging in Astrology Circles, which is Adam’s prefered way of teaching. Adam presents on a given topic while we share stories, look at participants charts, ask questions, search for answers, laugh and learn. There will be 6 circles at the retreat that focus on:

An Intro into Synodic Cycles

Lunar Cycles

Mars Cycles Collectively

Mars Cycles in the Natal Chart

Venus Cycles Collectively

Venus Cycles in the Natal Chart

This is all levels event. Don’t be discouraged if you know nothing about Astrology. This retreat is for anyone interested in taking their practice of Astrology to the next level. You will learn just by coming and being immersed in this vibrant Astro - Community.

The retreat creates a safe space to integrate our bodies, our minds, and our spirits with Astrology. With yoga and qi gong, titillating conversation, fires, and the sacred valley with those healing waters, it’s bound to be quite the environment for interstellar transmissions.

Whether you have recently been summoned into the realm of astrology or you are a lifelong student, there will always remain a perennial challenge when it comes to astrology, and that is “The Art of Talking Astrology.” Reading a chart is like learning a new language. To really know this language, you must integrate astrology through your bodies, your minds, and your spirits.

To condense it all into a word, it would be: Kosmognosis - a process that allows the planets to speak through you, while always listening closely with Hermes’ third ear to hear the wisdom of the cosmos talking from everywhere. For those of you who know Adam Sommer, you know he talks, lives, and breathes the wisdom of astrology. Join Adam, his apprentices, his clients, and his fans for a long weekend retreat under the stars of Colorado, while soaking in the curative waters of the San Luis Valley.

During this retreat, you will get the opportunity to learn how to understand, read, and talk astrology, without the need reference books or online sites. Connect with sky and ground as you explore this wondrous healing tool and discover your own unique “Art of Talking Astrology.” There will be four astrology circles in total over the weekend, led by Adam Sommer. There will also be yoga, qi gong, incredible food, and plenty of time to soak in the hot springs.

You will be blessed with a Taurus full moon weekend with Jupiter hugging up the sun in Scorpio. It will be deep and it will be transformative. By the end of the weekend, your relationship to astrology will be reinvigorated and brought to the next level of its evolution, and your understanding of Cycles and the living sky will be expanded.

With yoga and qi gong, titillating conversation with avid astrologers, and the sacred valley with those healing waters, it is a tri-force for a phenomenal experience. Adam’s student’s who have just graduated from the apprenticeship program and will be looking for practice, they will be present to assist and offer readings.There will be plenty of free time for apprentices and participants to practice readings, creating quite the environment for interstellar transmissions.
