Magestic & Magical

Why Mt. Shasta?

Mount Shasta is known as the most powerful vortex point in North America. This volcanic mountain has been revered as a sacred place of power by numerous native tribes, for thousands of years.

Located in Northern California, just south of the Oregon border, Mount Shasta is considered the root chakra of the earth (the most primal of the earth chakras). 
People are drawn here from all over the world and often have no idea why.

Our campsite is located on a vortex-portal point capable of folding space and time within its field. It condenses and 'zips' space more potently than any other area in North America.

People have had wild, unexplainable experiences out here that have led to great awakenings about their inner nature. It's the place to go to release your fears and get deeply grounded in your primal nature.

Sleeping on the earth and experiencing the activity in the night sky in this potent place, clears the physical body and re-structures your cellular memory. You will feel safe and held as you release old thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you.

The Healing Modality 

A group movement practice

Amelía discovered this modality in deep meditation in 2005 to heal the pain body also known as the body double, the Ka or the shadow body. It can be best described as a combination of yoga philosophy, with chi gung, taichi, and dance to unleash your human potential. Amelía guides the group with direction to keep you going inwards and a powerful group field gets activated that creates a trance like cathartic release. The movement part is followed by meditation and rest for deep integration. Amelía moves around the circle to assist people individually in their journey to connect you deep inside yourself to find your own healing power and unwind any trauma or trapped emotions. It restores the body at a cellular level and provides more space for your spirit to free itself.

This practice is done with eyes closed or with a blindfold to loud music and at times live drumming.

Who am I to be guiding you?

As a 5 year-old child I used to roam the foothills alone for hours at a time looking for snakes to catch for my older brother. Being alone in nature has taught me how to harmonize with the earth and connect me to my inner knowing. All my troubles just melt away when I commune with the trees, the dirt and interact with wildlife.

As an adult I have lived in remote areas for years at a time – from a small cabin in the woods, to rural Indian villages, to living on a wildlife reserve where wild elephants, bears, tigers, leopards, wild boar, monkeys, and wild dogs roam freely.

In 2005, I participated in a Native American Vision Quest which consisted of surviving five days without food or water. I slept outside alone in the icy cold forest without a tent listening for spirit messages. That quest totally transformed my life.

For three months during the summer of 2016 I lived out on Mount Shasta for nearly three months straight. I spent three weeks out there as a solo quest with no one in sight. I would come to town only a few times a week to get supplies and teach my classes over the internet. It was the most extraordinary summer I ever had and I want to share the magic of that experience with you.

In the last year I have facilitated and designed nine retreats in the Mount Shasta area helping attendees ground their authentic presence and claim their life purpose.

As the founder of Know The Self, a Mystery School for Modern Day Living, I assist my students to master their energy and activate their true work in the world. I’ve been holding retreats in the USA and India for the last thirteen years and have helped thousands of people liberate their minds, navigate expanding realities, establish sustainable lifestyles and live out their divine destinies.


Nutritious meals will be lovingly prepared for you daily. Gluten-free / Vegan options available.


do I bring my own camping gear?
Yes, yes you do girl! If you do not own gear, we will help you to find low cost gear. If you are afraid to camp alone, there will be a common tent for your peace of mind. 

will there be drugs of any kind?
No drugs, no alcohol, no plant medicines or other intoxicants are allowed. Mount Shasta is a sacred site and we are camping at a high elevation (7,000 feet) so you will experience a natural high!
how do i get there?
It is best you arrive by car, there wil be a private FB group to help you find ride shares. Mount Shasta is 4 hours from the Bay Area and one hour from Redding, CA airport and one hour from Medford, OR airport.
do I need to hike all my gear to the campsite?
Nope. The cars can be parked next to the camp spot so there is no need to shlep stuff very far from your vehicle. This is called "glamping".  
where do i pee?
There is no running water at the campsite, we will have a compost toilet available and there is lots of privacy for activating your animal instincts.
what exactly do I need to bring?

Your sleeping bag, tent, bug repellant (not many mosquitos but some),​​​​​ good hiking/walking shoes, flip flops or river shoes, swimsuit, towel, wet wipes come in handy, water containers! (You can fill up at the local spring for the best water or come already stocked) A full list of things to prepare will be given to you within plenty of notice.

do I have to sleep alone?
​​​​​​Everyone sleeps in private tents. This is a personal quest so there will be no couples sharing a tent. You'll be encouraged to find a place to set up far from the others in the big meadow.
who should NOT attend?
If you have physical ailments that prevent you from walking on uneven surfaces, you may want to reconsider this. You will need to be physically fit to walk and sleep on the forest floor. We reserve the right to refuse anyone who we do not feel is the right fit for this excursion.

Rock n' roll Mystic
"I was baffled by the quality of the experience, it was way beyond what I imagined. I loved the silence, the work, the movement, the land, the food, the excursions, the drumming, the honesty, the love, being seen, being lifted up - these words don't convey the magick I experienced with everything Amelía created."
Massage Therapist
"What I loved most was the depth of heart and intention for the space to be held for my soul to reconnect and re-attune for healing myself and the collective. Amelía is a true light worker. Pure in her heart, knowledge, and intentions. She is authentic, kind and no fluff, just heart mastery and presence."
Former Int'l Marketing VP
"I loved the synergy, the awakening sessions, the energy and all the love i felt. Amelía is an enlightened soul, a very advanced spiritual guide and human being. She can help you expand your conscious mind and bring out your true soul!"
