Retreat Details:

Dates:   Please notice that we’ve added one full day to our itinerary (in comparison to our recent spring retreat). We will gather at The Gainesville Retreat Center by 10am on Thursday, October 26th, for our first healing circle, and conclude our journey together at Noon on Sunday, October 29th.

Cost:    We ask for a sacred energy exchange of $444 to be paid to Alania for all that is generously offered as a retreat experience. An additional (affordable) fee will be collected for your sleeping accommodations. More info can be found below.  We encourage you to SAVE YOUR SPACE by choosing to pay your tuition of $444 in full, or by paying a sacred deposit of $111 now. Any remaining balance will be due by October 14th, along with your accommodation fees.

Your payments are non-refundable. However, I do wish to honor your journey. If canceled within 7 days of retreat, you may apply your previous payments towards any of Alania’s future events or services.

Location:   We are being generously hosted by the beautifully charming Shana Smith and The Gainesville Retreat Center!!! Their expansive ceremonial space simply takes my heart away. We will be able to go quite deep into receptivity while in this space.  They are located within 108 acres of wildlife refuge. Nature will actually be your playground!! Please visit their website at to learn more.

Lodging:   The newly built Gainesville Retreat Center has 5 bedrooms available. 2 of these bedrooms are private and cost $60/night. 3 of these bedrooms are shared…with a bunkbed and an additional twin in each room. These rooms cost $40/night and will be shared. There will also be new cabins and housing units available to support our amazing journey. Priority will be given to those who joyfully register first. Camping and RV hookups are also available. Please ask for more information regarding camping and RV hookups.

Food and Meals: The focus of Thursday morning is “getting to know each other” and introducing ourselves to the experience. So I would like to suggest a Pot Luck for lunch on Thursday!! Please bring a contribution that is healthy and vegetarian.

The price of your lunch and dinner, each day, is included in your tuition of $444. I will bring plenty of fresh, healthy food choices, and we will continue to bond as we prepare meals together in GRC’s full kitchen.

Since our time together will move through very quickly, I am requesting that you bring your own morning nourishment. I suggest energy bars, fruit, granola, yogurt etc. Nothing that requires cooking. Let’s keep it simple.

Transportation:   Gainesville is located about 2 ½ hours north of Tampa Bay. If you’d like to share the drive with someone, please let us know. We’ll connect you with other bright souls who wish to begin the bonding journey a bit early too.

Additional Insights and Inspirations:

Please let us know that you are interested…if you’d like to remain up-to-date with all new announcements. As we move closer to this journey, Spirit will be inspiring me with much more detailed information.


We look so forward to journeying with you!!!!! ♥
