Sierraville Hot Springs, Northern California

Half Moon May 18 - 21, 2017




We invite you to our intimate Empowered Loving Retreat in the days just after the August 21st total Solar Eclipse in North America. This will be a mystical journey where we shall bring to life our kindred connections and collective Shakti (feminine energy) to harness the magic of the growing Waxing Half Moon, with both the power of the light and the dark in the cycle of Virgo (Virgin/Priestess/Queen/Empress). There is a profound alchemy that happens when we merge this cosmic alignment with our temple of sisterhood. With ecliptic life-force, our retreat serves to empower you as a vessel of the Sacred and catalyze the next evolution of your Sovereignty, Leadership and Feminine Power. 

There is space for 8 couples retreat (3 rooms & 5 camping spots)

We look forward to being with you

With Love, Shems & Achintya





Igniting Conscious, Sacred & Erotic Union



Sovereignty. Leadership. Feminine Power.

We shall stir in the cauldron of Earth Wisdom and Moon Ritual both individually and as a Sisterhood Temple. 

Individually you are encouraged to nourish yourself, to listen to the voice of your soul, to welcome the power of the Moon, the Animal Spirits and the Goddess to guide you from within to courageously rise into the next phase of your divine unfoldment.

Our unified field of energy will serve to amplify our experiences with Grace and Power. Collectively we will journey with Goddess Gaia, Demeter and the Corn Mother, as well as with the Lioness, the Phoenix & the Hawk. We will contribute to one another with the medicine of being moon sisters, offering sacred reflection, support and honour. 

With the Majesty of the Alchemical Empress and the Royal lineages of light, our Rituals, Nature Adventures and Embodiment Practices serve to empower you in your Sovereignty, Leadership and Feminine Power.

About the Resort

For centuries, Native Americans have regarded this land as a sacred healing space. Guests come to unwind, connect, and enjoy the enchanted location. The water is as smooth as silk, and almost instantly brings you into total relaxation.


The Pools

The Temple Dome Area is the main pool area and consists of The Hot Pool (105-110°) which is enclosed in a large geodesic dome, featuring stained glass and skylights. Complemented by two cold plunges this pool is also sand bottomed, with mosaic tile sides. Outside the dome, the large Warm Pool (98-100°) is complemented by a large sundeck. 

  • The Meditation Pool (98-100°) is outdoors, surrounded by rock tile. In this faux natural pool, you step down rock steps into a sand bottomed delight.  
  • This Seasonal Hot Pool is ideal for enjoying the star studded skies. 
  • The Phoenix Baths (85-90°) are seasonal pools inside private rooms, and the warm spring water is drained and refilled between users. The Phoenix Baths also house our newly remodeled spa area.

**Please note that the pools are clothing optional, and the dressing facilities are co-ed. No photography is allowed in these areas. Further details can be found on the Sierra Hot Springs site.
