The stars have aligned for an immersive Astrology Retreat with Cosmopolitan Magazine’s resident astrologer, author, and podcast host – the one and only, Aliza Kelly! Aliza’s first-ever Astrology Retreat takes place in one of the most spiritually energetic landscapes in the world: California’s legendary High Desert.
Our homebase is the luxurious Two Bunch Palms Spa Resort. Upon arrival, each guest will receive a private one-on-one session with Aliza. For the rest of the weekend, the group will meet for comprehensive hands-on teaching. Within this small group setting, Aliza will guide participants through dynamic coursework, teaching participants how to interpret their own birth chart, as well as how to apply these skills to deepen their spiritual practice.
Day One: Check in to your homebase, Two Bunch Palms Spa Resort, where therapeutic natural waters have been flowing for over 600 years. Explore the facilities, enjoy a spa treatment, or take a dip in the pool before meeting Aliza with fellow retreat members at the Welcome Reception.
Once guests have settled, join us at the stunning patio at the hotel restaurant for a meet-and-greet Welcome Reception. Over cosmically-curated cocktails (after all, Aliza wrote The Mixology of Astrology), Aliza will introduce the weekend’s programs and guide us through our first-round of astrological activities. Following the Welcome Reception, Aliza will sit with each member of the retreat for a one-on-one astrology session. During this intimate conversation, Aliza will help each participant discover their unique astrological journey for the days ahead.
Day Two: Good morning stargazers! Rise and shine to enjoy breakfast. Two Bunch Palms’ menu is organic, local, seasonal, sustainable, and delicious! The resort is also equipped to accommodate any dietary requests, so there will surely be something for everyone. After breakfast, join your fellow retreat members in the stunning 3,000 square foot Solar Earth Mound Celestial Dome for guided yoga with a certified instructor. We’ll set our intention, stretch our bodies, and prepare for an exciting day ahead.
After yoga, we will gather for our first group class. At this point, each guest will receive a customized astrology binder filled with detailed information about astrology and magick. In the privacy of our intimate group, we will discuss our individual relationships with the signs, planets, and houses, sharing stories that bring each astrology principle to life. Here, the group will explore the practical interpretations of astrology that bring the constellations to life.
After this powerful coursework, guests are invited to luxuriate at the resort. Reflect on our astrology discoveries during a relaxing spa treatment, swim, or a quick midday nap. We’ll all reconvene for a quick lunch and get ready for our first excursion of the day.
Our private bus will be waiting to escort us to the world-renowned Integratron. Built in 1960, this “desert spaceship” was originally constructed for “rejuvenation and time travel.” Now, this historic structure has been converted into a year-round healing center. As a group, we’ll be guided through a 60-minute sound bath session performed by professional healers on 20 quartz crystal singing bowls. Each bowl is specifically tuned to energy centers within the body, fortifying the nervous system and fueling physical wellness and awakening our intuition.
With our innate psychic abilities at an all-time high, we will journey into Joshua Tree National Park for an evening hike, dinner, and night sky presentation. After meeting our professional guide, we’ll explore the majesty of the Mojave Desert, noting the sounds, sights, and energetic power of this enchanted landscape. As the sun begins to set, our guides will prepare a fresh dinner. Next, we’ll be joined by a professional astronomer, who will set up a high-powered telescope to aid our stargazing. Joshua Tree is considered to be one of the world’s best stargazing destinations, making it the perfect destination for a real-time astrology session. We’ll track the sky in relation to our unique birth charts, celebrating our personal narratives as they relate to the greater cycles of the planets, luminaries, and celestial bodies.
After taking in the incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience, we’ll return to the comforts of our Two Bunch Palms for well deserved rest.
Day Three: Good morning! Our final day begins with an invigorating yoga session at the dome, followed by a delicious breakfast at the resort’s restaurant.
The Astrology Retreat concludes with a final group session. Combining the skills of reading a birth chart on paper and interpreting the planets in real-time, we’ll explore next steps: Applying the principles of astrology into your daily life.
Astrology reminds us that we are the masters of our own destinies. And now — awake, illuminated, and inspired — we can infuse the magick of the Astrology Retreat into our realities. Although this journey has come to a close, our new relationship with the stars is just beginning.
