Manitoulin Island is the island of Manitou, the Great Spirit, the largest freshwater island on the planet. It is home to the Ojibwe people, and hosts a number of creative artists and musicians each summer who appreciate and attune to the healing nature sanctuary and mystical soundscape that this magical island offers. You are invited to join us to celebrate under the full canopy of  summer stars with Venus conjunct the Pleiades constellation. We will be journeying to a few of the most beautiful, sacred and magical sites on Manitoulin during this Astrological Vision Nest Retreat. We will be hosted for 5 days (and perhaps stay longer if you choose) at Klaus and Karen's magnificent Green Bay Lodge  situated on the north shore of Lake Manitou. We will be taking daytrips to Bridal Veil Falls near Kagawong, Lake Mindemoya, the Cup and Saucer Lookout, Dreamer's Rock and one or two earth grid portals identified by Klaus who has mapped out Manitoulin for its energy currents.

This Astrological Vision Nest Retreat may well fill to capacity (maximum of 12) so it is a good idea to book your reservation with a credit card ro pay pal deposit ($222) as soon as possible.The fee for the retreat is $777. We will be treated to nourishing buffet breakfasts daily and we will co-create gala pot-luck dinners each evening with a little help from our hosts...

 It is possible to fly in to either the Toronto or the Detroit airports and you will need 4-5 hours to drive to the ferry terminal at Tobermory. Please feel free to call Joseph-Mark at his voice mail 1-888-633-2214 leaving your number and a good time to reach you to discuss logistics and travel arrangements. There may be some possibilities for ride-sharing for those who are taking the Friday morning ferry from Tobermory.

             May the gentle yet powerful healing vibrations of Manitoulin Island envelop you !!!    Photos from left to right: Green Bay Lodge, Bridal Veil Falls & Sailing & Sunrise on Lake Manitou.

Last year's Summer Solstice Vision Nest retreat was magical with the full moon rising over Lake Manitou.(This year the moon is full on the 17th, conjunct the Galactic Centre.) We set up a the ceremonial astrology circle of stones overlooking the lake and seating for 8 at the firepit. The photos below take you to the healing waters of Bridal Veil Falls and for a cybersail upon Captain Klaus's Viking Breeze sailboat! So imagine 5 full days of soul alchemy: hiking, sailing, kayaking, astrological revelations, past-life & shamanic journeying plus delicious vegetarian gourmet meals by the firepit (and perhaps a taste of the mystical Manitoulin lingfish if you are so inclined) and you will have a fractal of an idea of what is in store. Reservations are limited so you had best make yours today....
