January 2: Optional trip to Patagonia Vaastu Temple

Heartfriends from around the world are gathering to usher in 2012 as the year of mankind's awakening. Our feast of light opens December 29 at the Spirit of the Desert Retreat Center, located 30 miles north of Phoenix in Carefree, Arizona. Highlighting our four-day weekend celebration is the presence of the ascended masters and their teachings given through David C. Lewis, spiritual director and founder of The Hearts Center Community.

During our time together on this six-acre desert oasis, you will be able to salute the sun and your personal Solar Presence with sunrise and sunset meditations and Surya Yoga and guided Tai Chi exercises. You will accelerate your individual spiritual journey as we raise the Mother Light within ourselves and the earth body through devotional singing and dance. We will hike the meditation path, walk the large labyrinth, and experience a balancing of yin and yang energies by soaking in a hot water spa and then plunging into the cold water pool.

Join the ascended masters and many heartfriends in Carefree, envisioning and creating together a New Age of Enlightenment throughout the Earth.

David’s Comments on the Importance of Attending the New Year's Conference in Phoenix

I think that we were all impelled higher by beloved Saint Germain. And there is not much more to be said except for the fact that we have to map out how we will fulfill what he has asked in a very practical way, day by day…  

This event is so important for the Brotherhood and for us because it is the kickoff for the entire year…

If you can accept the possibility that this is workable, doable for you and put into motion by your God-desire this manifest victory, we will have 70 there and we will set the sail for a wonderful new year…

this is the entire seed of the new year that we will plant deep within the earth that will bear fruit in manifest ways and will allow us to expand our movement, to expand our offerings, expand what God has in store for us which we simply must be ready for, to accept and to nurture and to deliver…
