Sacred Immersion Weekend Retreat
WholeHearted Mystical Living
April 30 - May 3, 2015
Cranaleith Spiritual Center
Northeast Philadelphia, PA
Enjoy the Slideshow from the April, 2013 Angelic Immersion
The evolutionary path to WholeHearted, Mystical Living has been revealing itself throughout our eight Sacred Immersion Retreats. We find it fitting that we enter our ninth Sacred Immersion with a return to Cranaleith Spiritual Center where it all began in 2010. This Sacred Immersion offers an invitation to dive deeper into the Mystery, clarify our subtle energy field, practice engaging life with keen awareness, and to open ourselves to the highest potential we are capable of perceiving and embodying at this time. The foundational work we have done individually and communally will strengthen our pure intent to flow WholeHeartedly in the mystical stream of Life with grace. We will actively explore together how to deepen our subtle perceptions in order to engage the Divine Wisdom that is everywhere present and willing to guide us through our days, inspire our dreams, and lead us upon a beautiful Soul path.
Within the weekend's scheduled gatherings, there will be a flexible array of Divine Feminine Wisdom transmissions flowing through Kathy, yoga and laughter yoga with Julie, a new Sacred Art experience with Mary, a new initiation with the Masters ceremony, meditation, chanting, dancing, energy medicine, Angelic Energetics™ techniques, inspired writing, group sharing, free time in nature, and our profoundly moving Sacred Ceremony within the Spiral Matrix of Light. As we have experienced in previous Sacred Immersion Retreats, we will step out of time and linear processing to experience the mystery and tremendous potential alive in each of us and in Life. We will explore our future, not as a fixed time, but as our Soul's potential for Graceful enhancement of our lives and that of all beings on the planet. You are encouraged to come curious, open, and fresh to this weekend immersion experience. You are invited to embrace the extraordinary possibilities of transformation within your Sacred Life to experience greater coherence, competence, and awareness of all that Life has to offer. Expect transformation as this is inevitable when a Soul commits to dive deeply into Truth.
We appear to be moving upon a spiral trajectory, much as is depicted within our Light Matrix Ceremony, toward a more seamless way of being in the world. You may feel the quickening within you as if there is an invitation for you to relate differently to your Sacred Self, other people, your work, the world, and the seamless nature of reality. Notice this and follow the flow without undue anxiety or story about it. Once an Immersion Retreat is announced and booked, the energy of the group that will show up together begins working on behalf of everyOne involved. Einstein spoke of "spooky action at a distance," while the Angelic Realm simply empowers us to remember simply that "Love Flows." There is a tremendous wisdom that is offered by all participants and the retreat is a wonderful opportunity to receive this wisdom in the group's moments of sharing, experiential activities, and in the casual down time at meals and on breaks. It is a seamless process and everyOne is interacting and empowering with everyOne throughout all the moments of the Sacred Immersion and later in emails, deepening friendships, and gatherings at Soul Sanctuary and other lovely places. This is a lovely community of people. We welcome you to return again or show up for the first time. If you are feeling the call, please pay attention, as we are expecting you.
We are returning to the evolving Cranaleith Spiritual Center as the new conference center has been constructed and will delight us with it's spacious gathering spaces. We will tranform the space into a Sanctuary, Art Room, SpaVasanahhhh! lounge, and beautiful eating area. As we bring our altars, Sacred art, and beautiful selves into this space, we co-mingle with the pure intent of a mission of Sacred Service and the natural wisdom of this beautiful land. We were honored to receive loving guidance from the natural surroundings in our first retreat in June, 2010 and we look forward to being gracefully informed by the mystical power and beauty of the land at this retreat. As you will read below, we will have some housing at Cranaleith and some at the local Radisson Hotel. We chose this option over other retreat centers that were very far away and more expensive. We plan to be in the conference center or on the grounds from start to finish each day. Our days are full of gatherings, free time, meals, and ceremony. We have the entire conference center so there is plenty of room to relax, commune with friends or nature, and store your belongings if you are staying off grounds or commuting.
Our Adventure begins on Thursday so we have plenty of time to immerse within the Sacredness of our Soul. We will welcome you at 4pm so that you may settle into the conference center and enjoy the grounds before we enjoy dinner at 5:30. We begin our evening program promptly at 7pm. We recommend leaving work a few hours early so that you allow enough time to commute and arrive peacefully. Give yourself this gift as you will have some time to hang out with nature or walk the labyrinth to set your intention and receive your Immersion message. Plan on taking a half hour to register and settle into your lodgings. We encourage you to eat on your own if you are unable to join our communal meal by 6pm. You may mapquest the address (listed below) and leave sufficient time to travel as Route 1 is busy with commuters at rush hour on Thursday.
WholeHearted Mystical Living is calling you to Engage Life along the Awakening Path. It is my deepest wish that you join with me to travel this HeartCentered pathway Home where Love Itself Gracefully embraces your Sacred Self.
I await your HeartLight.

Precious Sacred Immersion Facilitators
Mary, Julie, and I prepare ourselves vigilantly to co-create the Sacred Container of the Immersion Retreat experience. You are held reverently, safely, and with a full understanding of how Precious you truly are (and always have been). We create a beautiful Sanctuary where altars, light, beauty, art, and meaningful intention interact with the energy and intent you bring to each gathering. The Divine guides the retreat flow perfectly and we enjoy a sense of delight and laughter as we follow our guidance to facilitate a magical experience within the energetic weaving offered through all of the retreaters. Julie, Mary, and I are so grateful for this experience and leave every Immersion deeply fed, renewed, and in awe.

The Sacred Immersion Retreat Investment is $535
Thursday evening - Sunday
Housing Options are paid separately - See below
Retreat fee includes all preparation materials, retreat activities, facility fees, meals, handouts, mp3 downloads of recorded sessions, mp3 meditation collection, and surprise goodies.
Here is the transparent why of it and how it works. This information is shared as it is important that we exchange energy in a responsible and honorable manner. Once expenses are taken care of (facility fees, marketing, supplies, small stipend for two facilitators), Kathy tithes 10% to Soul Sanctuary's Empowering Women program. The remaining profit goes directly to rent for Soul Sanctuary. Kathy has subsidized the majority of Soul Sanctuary's expenses since opening in October, 2011. The creation and facilitation of the Sacred Immersion Retreat is Kathy's Seva and one of her favorite activities. These retreats are kept small so that you may have a rich, transformative personal experience. Your support is vital. Thank you for every contribution including your financial offering.

June, 2011 Angelic Immersion Retreat!
Enjoy Slideshow from June, 2011 Retreat
“I AM transcended to a new level, channeled info received is spilling overflowing. By and for the Grace of you all my path is more clear and I AM just being lead playfully down it as a vessel of light shining sparkles, glittering and glowing; celebrating life. Angel Blessings My Sweet Soulmates!!” SD, DE
“Thank you, Kathy, immeasurably, for all that you are, and for orchestrating such an expanding, joyful Retreat! I feel Taller and Lighter! Since the Retreat, I feel Renewed in so many ways... I feel connected to the Divine and an increased personal power! I FEEL LOVED! That is KEY for me. I have released so much baggage without knowing what it was or labeling it or attaching 'Story' to it. I've never heard of that kind of releasing before, I always thought a person had to identify what was being 'let go' in order to let it go. Story always gets in the way for me. BUT... When you DON'T name it...it's easier to Release. Ahhhhh.....thank you. I like how we didn't stop for sharing, get out of our right brain to talk, and had more time for expanding, growing, healing and general Angelic Immersion! It was incredible experiencing a “22 day Retreat” in 3 and a half days as the Angels explained. What a Powerful experience!” LW, PA
“What an Angelic OM-ersion Weekend! I have been without words all day. I am so happy and so overwhelmed with joy & gratitude to have gone through this profound and beautiful experience with all of you. Thank you each for the many many waves of love & expansion which you have opened, shared, and flowed in me. I am verclempt. Cheers, one and all. Peace, bliss, and onward ho! With Boundless Love and Eternal Gratitude,” ML, NJ
“I was so glad to meet you all. You have changed my life. My sacred writing last weekend was about all of us coming together and how important each and every one of us was to the wholeness and balance of our group. I believe that the force of our oneness coming together created a magnet of hope, love, and peace and positive change in the world. The magnet would have been incomplete and not as powerful if each and every one of us did not contribute to the oneness of that force.” NT, PA
“I love you Kathy Milano and thank you for being YOU! Through you, the angels have let me know that it really is okay to just be ME! INFINITE LOVE & LIGHT!” LN, NJ
“To me the retreat was a tapestry of energy woven together with love guided by the Divine. I am still learning to surrender and pray to continue. It as a wonderful and powerful time. Kathy, you are an inspiration to me and I am glad I was guided to you. No accidents, right? I was in all of the experience all 22 days!” MO, NJ
“Every moment is incredibly, beautifully perfect. Embrace yourself, your life, and every ounce of sweet love flowing to you. You are magnificent! If you realized it for but a moment, all the illusions would fall away and you would never be the same. Join me there. I love you so much, from every singing cell in my being. Where do you end and I begin? I am a powerhouse of Love! I am flooding the universe with SO much light and love, I blow myself and others away. Aren't we just beautiful? We are all matrices of light, all cells in the body of love. How beautiful... how beautiful. I love my life. My experience is perfect. There is nothing I have to do or become. I am All That Is. You are too. Sweet Perfection.” JH, NJ
“This weekend was a power house, dear lady! That's all i'm saying!!!! You were my inspiration to let it be whatever it is and move it out and move through it and release it. it's not about me anyway!!!! Thanks for the love, nurturing and support you give and share with so many. So many are touched by you and evolving into lightness thru your guidance.I am witness to it. I see how your touch radiates out. Namaste and hugs,” KM, NJ
“Thank you, Mary, for leading our Ray group in your knowledgeable yet gentle,easy going way and for the confidence you inspire in me when I create art. Thank you, Veronica, for the playful yoga which was so much fun but profoundly meaningful at the same time! Thank you, Teresa, for all your hard work in keeping us organized, carried out in such a graceful and effortless way. Thank you, Kristy, for the warmth you exude through your entire being and for your brilliant smile. Thank you, Stephen, for your healing, joyful and masterfully executed music and to you, Pam and Lisa, for sharing your angelic voices with us.” KM, NJ
“I had such a blissful weekend it was hard to float back down to Earth. Still, I feel so much more connected and present. Even others have been commenting on my "glow." And boy is the shift obvious. And to think all this just by letting it be.” LL, NJ
“From the moment I entered our first gathering and began listening to Kathy speak, I recognized on some deep level the enormity of what we were about to embark upon. The tears started flowing and kept on going throughout the weekend. Now, many tears were cried to help me release my own "interference", but many many more were in sheer gratitude for what I had the opportunity to partake in. I felt so blessed and lucky to be led by such beautiful, soul-centered, deeply connected, loving and talented women in our dear Kathy, Mary, Veronica, Kristy and Theresa, and I bow to each of you. I was also so deeply moved by the beauty of each participant. When I listened to you speak, saw you laugh or shed a tear across the room, you moved me by your beauty. The light in each of you was shining so bright, and I could not help but be deeply touched and blessed by the gift of your presence.” CH, NJ
“There are no words to explain the weekend. My gratitude for your willingness to share what the angels want for us feels like it could fill an ocean and still be overflowing. Being at Seva Retreat and remembering others so clearly, feeling the changes happening all weekend, the processing, releasing, shifting and of course the love is going to be kept in my heart forever. Driving to work and seeing peoples light instead of what I used to see, I never want this to pass. I will just have to keep asking the angels for help.” BM, PA
“What a fabulous celebration we had. It was great sharing these high energy vibrations with each other. The expansiveness that I felt was enormous and encompassed myself and everyone at the retreat. A final meditation resulted in my being near the labyrinth with an angel pulling me up towards the clouds. When I looked down I sensed the labyrinth having a spiral motion like a galaxy would have. It connected me with Pachamama (Mother Earth) by its rocks and earth composition. But also Universo (Father Sky) by its galactic spiral inference of matter and energy in motion.” GL, NJ
“Thank you, Kathy, so much for organizing and leading the beautiful Angel Immersion. There were so many joyful, sacred and life-altering moments that I experienced during our time together: the Immersion ceremony; the beautiful healing music, chants, and poetry; the camaraderie; the irreverent reverence.An incredibly deep release and healing occurred for me when you spoke the language of the Angels that morning. I intuitively understood the message and felt deep in my being the sacredness of the words being spoken and connected with their power and experienced a complete knowing of Divine Presence, Oneness and Love that affected me profoundly and allowed me to release an incredible amount of earthly "interference." KM, NJ
“Thanks again for a Divinely inspired weekend! It was an amazing 22 days and I really received some clear messages from Spirit.” JC, MD
“Thank you for inviting me to the precious experience... it was incredible....yet a lot of challenges....Now it is getting better and accepting this is" how and what" is - not just focus on goals....Think about my life purpose in different aspect..... Not just my job, but also how and what I carry myself with love. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” EK, DE
“What a great group. What a great experience. What a great connection. You and all your angelic helpers did an OUT OF THIS WORLD job. Every second was special and meaningful. Wish we were all still there together experiencing.....We will never be the same. We are changed for the better forever. Thank you Angels.” DK, NJ
I just viewed your video of our weekend and it was totally wonderful. The images refreshed my memory and brought back so many moving memories. I feel so blessed to have you in my life and all the others I connected with on that retreat. The days I am counting until the next one. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Be well and on high!! Angel hugs." EC, NJ
"Where can you go on an Angelic Immersion Retreat and get a picture of an Angel in a peace sign?! During Inspired Writing, I received this message: 'You have come to earth to experience peace. You have come to earth to create peace. You have come to earth to flow peace.' Then I get the picture! I feel truly blessed everytime I attend your workshops, retreat, or enjoy the Angelic Harmony eCourse. Thank you!" GY, PA
I AM deeply grateful to all of the Angelic Immersion Retreaters for their courageous Surrendering of expectations and egoic patterns as they willingly entered into new levels of Trust and Alignment with the Divine Presence. As each individual and the entire group allowed the Divine Presence, with the support of the Angelic Realm, to in-form them, a new Matrix of Light was created .... in each individual and in this group. As the group understood themselves more fully as Cells in the Body of Love, the realization that the individual's Great Work supported the Planetary Lightwork and All Life. As we walked through the powerful Matrix of Love, held by Grace, we were individually and collectively shown the way Home to our Sacred Hearts where the Divine has resided all along. As we remembered, so did you since we are truly connected as one Being. We hope you join us at a future Angelic Immersion Retreat. We await your HeartLight.

2010 Angelic Immersion Retreat!
" What an amazing time for growth, release, integration, and to meet such an inspirational group of individuals.
Thank-you for what each of you contributed in your own special way!" JM, PA
"Words cannot begin to express the profound life changes that came to me as a result of attending your Angelic Immersion Retreat in 2010. I truly believe everyone in that room was guided there to provide healing and love at levels I couldn't begin to understand until I experienced it myself. What a beautiful soul dance it was healing this lifetime and past lifetimes. As soon as I received your email for the 2011 retreat, there was no hesitation that I was going to join you for another profound journey of love and light. The power of the emotions that surfaced as a result of the seminar were at times overwhelming, but absolutely beautiful in their clarity and the direction they have provided me in my life. I told my daughter recently that if there were one gift I would like to give each of them for the holidays, it would be an AHS session with you. I am humbled by the gifts you share from the angelic realm each time we meet. Blessings to you and everyone who is so fortunate to be guided to join you in 2011 and, as I have heard you say so many times, and so it shall be.... Love flows" JD, PA
"THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the best spiritual experience that I ever
had in my life. It was AWESOME" GC, PA
"I so wanted to be sure to thank you for providing the Angelic Weekend for everyone. I never attended a retreat before, but I am certain it would never have compared to that awesome weekend. What a wonderful group of people to learn from and to grow with. There were so many little moments that touched my heart and my soul. This is an awesome period of time for me and I feel so blessed to have met you at that first "Got Angels?" seminar in Valley Forge with my friend. Guess we liked it - we haven't left since!" GW, NJ
"During the Immersion weekend, I experienced a very powerful enveloping of continuous Angel Vibrations during the whole weekend~~this also carried over for many days after. Angelic Energy could be felt all around me all weekend~~ that is how I felt. I received many reassuring messages of Love and Light all throughout the weekend. I personally had a "shift" in my life ~~ the angels are always there for me even when I "temporarily" forget to ask. I think that's an important message, that they are always there waiting for us to communicate. I, personally, have been requesting more signs when my vibrations are lower. Please know, you are always in my thoughts and best wishes, as I feel I learn so much in your presence. Peace, Love, and Light." KC, NJ
"I am interested in attending the Angelic Retreat in the Spring. The last retreat one of the most beautiful, moving and spiritual awakening that I could have experienced as well as needed, even though it was difficult. I had lost or gotten lazy with nourishing my spirit so this was perfect timing for me. I was there with like minds which made me feel safe and nurtured. You and Mary are champions/cheerleaders of the angels which made that retreat all that more special and lovely." MO, NJ
