Legends have swirled for centuries around the majestic Mt. Shasta, captivating the imaginations of locals and visitors alike. One such tale, deeply rooted in Native American mythology, tells of Chief Skell's spirit residing on the sacred summit. According to ancient lore, Skell, a celestial being, descended from the heavens to engage in a fierce battle with Lao, the Spirit of the Below-World, who dwelled upon neighboring Mount Mazama. The epic clash unleashed a torrent of molten rock and fiery lava, believed to be the result of volcanic eruptions from both mountains.
In more recent times, the enigmatic allure of Mt. Shasta attracted the attention of a spiritual seeker, who would go on to shape a movement that garnered devoted followers. Guy Ballard, the founder of the "I AM" Activity, claimed to have encountered a remarkable being during his ascent of the hallowed slopes in the 1930s. Ballard professed that a man named Comte de Saint-Germain revealed himself to him, bestowing profound teachings that would later form the foundation of the movement. This encounter, steeped in mysticism, ignited a transformative journey for Ballard, leaving an indelible mark on the spiritual landscape.
Yet, as extraordinary as these tales may seem, they pale in comparison to the awe-inspiring narrative of a hidden city beneath the mountain. Whispers abound of a subterranean realm, concealed from prying eyes, flourishing with advanced civilizations and ancient wisdom. While the existence of this hidden metropolis remains shrouded in mystery, it continues to capture the imagination of those who yearn for the extraordinary and seek solace in the realm of the unknown.
In the year 1904, an extraordinary tale unfolded that captivated the imaginations of many. It all began with the remarkable discovery made by a British prospector, JC Brown, deep within the majestic Mt. Shasta. Armed with a mission to seek out precious gold on behalf of The Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England, Brown stumbled upon something far more astonishing than he could have ever anticipated.
As he ventured into the depths of the mountain, Brown encountered an underground metropolis of unparalleled splendor. This hidden hamlet, concealed beneath the earth's surface, revealed itself to him in all its glory. It was a labyrinth of wonders, adorned with riches beyond belief, gleaming shields that spoke of ancient battles, and even mummies that held the secrets of a forgotten time.
Yet, amidst this treasure trove, there was something else that stirred Brown's soul. He claimed to have encountered a being of immense stature, standing at an astonishing ten feet tall. This enigmatic figure, shrouded in mystery, left Brown awe-struck and filled with wonder.
Fast forward thirty years, and the tale takes an unexpected twist. Brown, now older and wiser, entrusted his extraordinary account to a man named John C. Root. Root, driven by an insatiable curiosity, assembled a team of intrepid explorers in the city of Stockton. Eighty brave souls answered the call, eager to uncover the truth that lay hidden beneath Mt. Shasta's majestic facade.
However, on the day of their departure, a chilling absence loomed over the expedition. JC Brown, the very man who had unlocked the secrets of this subterranean marvel, was nowhere to be found. His disappearance remains a mystery to this day, leaving us to wonder what fate befell the intrepid explorer.
But the legends surrounding Mt. Shasta don't end there. In the year 1899, a writer by the name of Frederick Spencer Oliver unveiled a captivating account in his book, A Dweller on Two Planets. According to Oliver, survivors from the ancient continent of Lemuria found solace in the vicinity of Mount Shasta. They had created an intricate network of tunnels beneath the mountain, occasionally emerging from their subterranean sanctuary, draped in ethereal white robes.
These tales, though steeped in mystery and wonder, ignite a spark within us. They remind us of the boundless possibilities that await, just beyond the veil of our everyday lives. They inspire us to seek out the extraordinary, to delve into the depths of the unknown, and to embrace the wonders that may lie hidden beneath our very feet.
So, let us gaze upon the majestic Mt. Shasta with a renewed sense of awe and curiosity. Who knows what secrets it may still hold, waiting to be discovered by those bold enough to venture into its depths?

The word spirituality is normally associated with the exploration of one’s inner space, the search for meaning, a sense of total peace, and the immaterial dimensions of life. But most importantly, it has gained popularity lately by becoming something that’s within everyone's reach.
Nowadays, spirituality prioritizes the individual experience over the structures of religious organizations. You don’t need to follow a specific faith. Indeed, just by going on a spiritual retreat, you’re bound to live an experience beyond the ordinary.
In general terms, a spiritual retreat is a safe space where you can experience complete renewal and gain a high level of self-knowledge. For those who believe in Source or in any other higher power, it’s also the perfect setting for a profound meeting with it.
During a spiritual retreat, you’ll be secluded in a distant place, usually surrounded by nature, away from noise and distraction. Everything’s planned out for you so that you only focus on your wellbeing.
You’ll have committed and experienced practitioners that’ll guide you through unique spiritual practices to help you calm your mind and nourish your soul.
Spirituality doesn’t have any rules, which makes it totally fascinating and out of this world. Therefore, when it comes to spiritual retreats, you’re bound to have a mind-blowing experience.
Mostly all spiritual retreats include accommodation in wonderful locations, meditation practices, and profound activities and exercises during the day. Some of them also add unique practices to help you accelerate your spiritual journey, such as:
-Ceremonies at powerful sacred sites
-Shamanic initiations under the sun and the stars
-Energy healing sessions
-Messages from your spirit guides
-Akasha reading sessions
-Workshops in spiritual subjects
-Transformation coaching sessions
-Past life regressions
-Private mystic sessions
There’s no age, race, gender, special attributes, social class, or specific background required to participate in a spiritual retreat. Basically, anyone who wants to go can do it.
However, you may benefit more from the experience if you enjoy expanding your mind, if you like to explore other dimensions of life, or if you consider yourself to be a curious person.
If you already are on the path of self-exploration, joining a spiritual retreat is a great way to accelerate your inner journey and fill the existing gaps.
Finally, anyone who’s looking for a way to achieve a lasting sense of peace, connect with the power of divinity or find their life's purpose, could benefit a lot from joining a spiritual retreat.
