Experience hosted by Hestara

60 mins
Includes equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

A healing ceremony complete with medicine drumming, cacao and a guided, healing meditation on the land. Guests will be outside in the sacred land next to the ancient petroglyphs site. This ceremony will be both grounding and healing, allowing visitors to release the chaos of the outside world and other stressors they might be carrying. After the ceremony, guests will have the opportunity to explore the petroglyphs. The guests will be gently guided into opening their hearts and connecting with the sacred lands of Joshua Tree. It is a highly recharging and heart softening experience. Guests will then have the opportunity to leave and greet the world lighter, more present, and revitalized. I am an experienced healer, self-empowerment coach, and facilities of goddess retreats. Joshua Tree is my home and I love sharing both the gift of this special land and my personal healing gifts with visitors as I know it is not only a very special experience for my guests, it is a wonderful experience for me, as well.

I have been leading moon circles and women’s retreats in Joshua Tree for 5 years. I’ve studied shamanic and healing lineages for over 10 years. I am thrilled to share these sacred ceremonies with those who wish to deepen their experience in Joshua Tree. I love sending people off relaxed, rejuvenated and connected. During these times especially, we all need a little more time on the land, a little more healing, and more opportunities to “turn on, tune in, drop out.”

Where you'll be

The location is at the magnificent Joshua Tree petroglyphs, the only petroglyphs not in the park. It is an easily accessible, very easy to navigate terrain. The entire spot is a gorgeous representation of JT magic. The actual meditation/ceremony location is fully tucked away, off the beaten path. There is also often a waterfall (weather permitting). All types of desert wildlife have the potentiality to be seen, however birds are most common.

Hestara’s guided meditation and cacao ceremony was one of the coolest, most touching Airbnb experiences I’ve had. I brought my mother for her birthday and she personalized the experience so thoughtfully! The other women there were wonderful and Hestara was the perfect guide and hostess. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend adding a journey with Hestara to your Joshua tree plans. She thoughtfully and skillfully brought joy and light to my girlfriend's birthday ceremony, and I really loved her energy and spirit. Really fun to have a reference for our weekend's stay as we started out with the ceremony, and spent the rest of the weekend with our Desert Goddesses and thanking mother Gaia.

This was a beautiful experience. The ceremony completely opened my heart and emotions, and also affirmed some ideas I have been pondering for a while. Hestara designed the experience perfectly, and held the space so well. It ends on a lovely walk through boulders and seeing the petroglyphs. Very special all around. Thank you, Hestara!
