🌌 The Days are Shortened for the Elect

You are invited to attend our summer solstice conference, The Days are Shortened for the Elect—A Meditation Class with the Mercurian Masters, June 17-20, also in Livingston.

Learn More!

You'll start each day with a solar meditation, an Essene Morning Meditation or the giving of one of our many beautiful new-age rosaries. Then join the class in Energization Exercises or a number of other options that will change daily: Tai Chi, Yoga, Omraam Gymnastics, or the Five Tibetan Rites. Once you are spiritually and physically tuned up, it will be time to engage in Paneurhythmy, a daily ritual throughout the five days of the practicum.

"We demonstrate how to work with nature to co-create abundant foodscapes and sacred spaces."

–Paradise Permaculture Institute

Prayer and Planting


Each day breakfast is followed by prayers, chants, songs and a HeartStream. Then it’s time for Mona’s permaculture mini-class, packed with innovative gardening practices and principles that allow us to create a thriving, sustainable way of life as we put what we are learning into action where we live. Mona has something new and exciting to share every day. We’ll also enjoy some hands-on Permaculture work.

Earth, Water, Air, Fire, Ether

The afternoon activities begin with a fire meditation. Then each of the five elements—earth, water, air, fire and ether—is highlighted, one per day, with special presentations by Livingston locals who have environmental expertise. And you might even say they are very much in their element with their special element! In the late afternoon we take to the outdoors for a hike or local field trip.

Wednesday—Healing Light Retreat; Yellowstone River Rafting

Midweek, the daily schedule varies and we are off to the Healing Light Retreat for a devotional service and then a tour of the property to experience the permaculture work that has been done throughout. After lunch it’s time for a relaxing float down the Yellowstone River. Be prepared for a few rapids just to keep you interested and alert.

Our permaculture practicum is wonderful fun and learning for the entire family! We hope to see every member of yours at our Green and Violet Revolution for Lightbearers.
