Zen Within Adventure Retreat - Mount Shasta

Saturday, August 1st - sunday, August 9th, 2020

8 days of adventure, connection and sacred ceremony in Mount Shasta, California.

Mount Shasta is the root chakra of the earth and is a place full of spiritual mystery and legends. From tales of the ancient Lemurian city of Telos to the Native American creation stories Mount Shasta is a spiritual epicenter unlike any other. Power sites like Mount Shasta can amplify and accelerate transformation, awakening and spiritual connection. In this special place, where the veil is thinner, miracles regularly happen and anything is possible.

In May of 2019 Katie traveled to Mount Shasta for 9 days and it changed her life. She experienced a monumental shift in her being that has led to an unbelievable expansion in her purpose driven work on this planet. It enabled her to release lifetimes of limiting beliefs and traumas that were locked in her root and sacral chakras preventing her from creating and bringing forth important esoteric teachings that were waiting to be birthed. Mount Shasta was the catalyst of clearing she needed to step more deeply into herself and her power. And now she is ready to share that with others!!

Each morning of the retreat involves:

  • Light movement and morning meditation with esoteric teachings to help you anchor the Mount Shasta experience into your being

Every afternoon you will engage in:

  • A day hike to a sacred site, mountain meadow, medicine lake or waterfall.

Every Evening you will engage in:

  • Healing ceremonies, free time, meals and connection

A Special ascension and healing ceremony on 8/8/2020- Lion’s Gate

  • Not only will we be performing impromptu ceremonies, land healings and activations on the mountain and everywhere in between but we will be sitting in a sacred ceremony on the last night of the retreat that coincides with the day of the Lion’s Gate Portal peak. This alone will make the trip life-changing and something that can’t be missed.

DAILY ACTIVITiES: Adventure, Connection, Ceremony, Rejuvenation



From hikes to heart shaped lakes to waterfalls to snow covered peaks, Mount Shasta has it all and we will be out daily enjoying all the beauty nature has to offer.



Gather together with like minded individuals to learn, grow and expand your spiritual connection together. Open up to the divine through new avenues of connection via a sacred energy vortex.



Just being in the vicinity of Mount Shasta creates an air of sacredness and ceremony like no other. Each moment is an impromptu ceremony as you connect with the land and with one another.



There will be ample pockets of time to relax and rejuvenate. You will have access to the amazing Stewart Mineral springs, secluded nature spots and vistas and so much more.

A mystical and magical adventure

“I am just so grateful to have found this retreat, to get to know Katie & all of the wonderful people who are working toward light and love and living a meaningful life. I feel the changes happening in me and feel more accepting of myself and actually have hope for the future. I really believe this is the opening I needed to find my real self again.”
“Traveling with Katie is a profoundly nourishing adventure for your soul; a pathway back to your authentic self. She is deeply connected to the spirit realm, Mother Gaia, and all the elements of the natural world. These connections serve as her personal GPS. Many is the time we would be driving or hiking and suddenly, there we are at the absolute perfect spot for a restorative meditation or sacred ceremony or nourishing picnic on a huge flat rock in the middle of a mountain stream or invigorating swimming at the foot of a glorious waterfall. There is no shortage of deer, turtles, fish, birds, butterflies, or colorful moths you might encounter in the fairy world your find yourself in when forest bathing with Katie. On one occasion, a spiritually attuned ant participated as an element in our grid during a bit of impromptu ceremony we conducted on the banks of a creek!

A “Katie adventure” is certain to contain elements of warm sunshine, cool breeze and mist or light sprinkles of rain - just enough to manifest a rainbow as she is a personal rainbow radiator. Whether taking a short hike or a longer journey on a less traveled woodland path, you will experience a deep spiritual cleanse, feel relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated, and in the perfect state for your best sleep ever!”
“A truly Awakening and amazing retreat! What a wonderful, informative, enlightening, heart and soul opening experience.... in a safe non judgmental loving and supportive environment. Be prepared to experience a shift in your awareness and several eureka moments! Katie Sutton is a true loving healer. Thank you Katie Josh and Team for all the love thought and support that went it making this such a wonderful experience for all of us. It was amazing to witness the shift in so many people! Loved the peaceful location! If you are thinking of doing this retreat, it means you are ready for it, so go for it!”
“Excellent retreat. I highly recommend it. I was able to make considerable progress on my spiritual journey. The group that participated added a great deal to the experience. Everyone (!) was open, generous, and supportive. Quite a blessing.”

Sequestered in the Mt. Shasta foothills in Northern California, Stewart Mineral Springs offers a unique environment of sacred mineral waters, affordable accommodations, and a variety of workshops and retreats.

Stewart Mineral Springs provides guests a holistic experience with soothing private mineral baths, a wood-burning sauna and cool river plunges.

When you visit the springs, you will notice the special care they have taken to keep the land pristine. You will enjoy the majesty of the trees and gentle sounds of Parks Creek that provides the source of our waters. The relaxing environment of Stewart is tucked in a secluded forest canyon yet minutes away from Mt. Shasta and the Pacific Crest Trail. A perfect combination for any retreat you plan.

Mount Shasta and Glastonbury

The mineral water at Stewart Mineral Springs bubbles up from the ground from two distinct sources named the white water and the red water springs because of their respective iron and calcium deposits.  

The waters have a distinct parallel in their properties to the two springs in Glastonbury, England where they also have a white spring and a red spring at the base of Chalice Hill, both of which have been in use for thousands of years. The red water represents the male energy and the white water, the female. Both Mount Shasta and Glastonbury are very powerful energetic places on the planet where the waters are imbued with great healing properties. Glastonbury has the myth of King Arthur and Guinevere, representing divine love. Mount Shasta is a place of tranquility, peace and happiness, surrounded by many mysteries.  Both Mount Shasta and Camelot represent ancient mythical kingdoms based on a spiritual and visionary society as much as a geographic place.


How we nourish our bodies as we move through shifts and transformations is critical. We have found an amazing local caterer who will be preparing high vibrational food for us each day. We will have our lunches on the go during the days adventures onsite at various sacred spots around Mt. Shasta and breakfast and dinner will be held at Stewart Mineral Springs each morning and night. The food will be fresh & seasonal with options for those who are gluten or dairy sensitive as well as vegan or vegetarian. In addition, a kitchen is available onsite should you have additional dietary restrictions that need to be supported.
