Gathering for Humanity Retreat in Santa Fe

Grandmother Flordemayo

The Gathering for Humanity, Awaken Through the Seeds of Knowledge and Wisdom retreat conference is being held from May 16 through 20 at The Chi Center, in Santa Fe. This powerful and timely five-day gathering for unity and awakening is taking place during a pivotal moment on Earth.

A mandate of Spirit through universal healer Mayan Grandmother Flordemayo, the Gathering is an urgent calling to all of humanity committed to increasing the light and coherence on the planet. “At this critical time on Earth, we as Elders recognize the inherent need for humanity to move in a different way—our habits, what we hold true, how we see our place in nature, with the universe and within our hearts—must shift,” she says.

Flordemayo was shown that each of us is holding a piece of the puzzle that will catapult us in the direction of personal and collective healing, wisdom and harmony. “Collectively we will go through a process of incredible cosmic remembrance. This Gathering will be a catalyst and a sanctuary for the emergence of the sacred into form,” she explains. “Indigenous Elders, hosts, honored guests and musical guests will weave their gifts through the healing journey, activating energies of the land in a retreat environment to transform and realign body, mind and spirit. Sacred seeds of awakening will be planted at this event, which you may grow in your own communities through practice, inner wisdom and higher vibration.”

According to Flordemayo, the Gathering represents four different organizations brought together through a calling of spirit, aligned in a common vision to form a new global alliance. Gathering hosts include Flordemayo and The Path, Master Mingtong Gu and The Chi Center, Matthew Reifslager and The Wholeness Crystal Earth Project, and Madi Sato and Timothy McLaughlin and Praising Earth.

“Our purpose is an alliance of prayer, wisdom, education and healing for our Mother Earth—for all her inhabitants, for all children and for the next seven generations in the four directions,” says Flordemayo. “The Gathering for Humanity is not just a one-time event. It is a movement. We invite you to join us and thank you for moving with us with love, light, compassion and peace.”
