David Ashworth reports from the Emerald Heart Retreat.

Mount Omberg, Sweden

Friday 25th August 2013
This was a unique and special Emerald Heart Retreat, as it was for Hosts and Practitioners only. Everyone had arrived by 5.00pm at the Mount Omberg Tourist Hotel and we all sat down to a magnificent 3 course dinner, which was a fine dining experience. Just the thing to set us up for the opening circle later.

Opening Circle
David opened the event with a short welcome address, handing over to Yvonne Hrdy to open the circle, where we brought in the light and placed our names into this sacred space, offering our consciousness for transformation. Once the sacred circle had been created, Rosa spoke about her initial experiences on Mount Omberg, which had initiated this retreat some months earlier. The theme was Connecting with the Heart of the Mother, Mount Omberg being recognised as a central portal into her heart.

A joint theme for this retreat is Creating Community, a process of coming together in a more focused way and connecting to each other and the light of The Emerald Heart to develop a stronger sense of community.

Showing Reverence to each other in what we bring and he way we bring it into our lives, into this world through our work with the Light.

Tim Dyson then introduced The Talking Stick and we began to share. Immediately, the light opened us and the tears flowed as one of our group told of her experience of feeling that she was coming home. It was a powerful process for her. And that’s how things began.

Monday 26th August
The morning began with a session from Dave, who spoke for two hours on the History of The Emerald Heart Light. We were addressed as The Light Bringers, as we were all involved in bringing The Emerald Heart Light to Mount Omberg, where we will pour it into the Earth on the second day of our retreat, connecting the Light into the Heart of the Mother.

Dave continued to bring us up to date with the changes that have been manifesting for him personally since late 2012 and the magnificent things that have been unfolding more recently.

The Council of Elders
At the end of 2012, the first teachers of The Emerald Heart began to develop, and in June, Dave was asked by Guidance to bring them all together for one day. Yvonne came from Munich, Rosa from Sweden, Lynne from New York and Tim from London, to Gather in the Light at Emerald Heart Headquarters in the Shropshire countryside. When the Light called them, they all travelled these great distances for a this one day meeting. However, guidance doesn’t just pull people in for a meeting, but this Gathering began a process and the following day, these four teachers were raised up in Light and given the title The Council of Elders of The Emerald Heart.

Immediately, a great, powerful and ancient light began to flood their systems and a ring of fire developed beneath their feet, as if magnetically pulling them on to it and bonding them as one heart. Transformation was swift and Dave brought through much guidance for them over the following weeks as they went through their various baptisms of fire.

The Birth of The Wheel of Light
In July, there was another magnificent development. Back in May 2002, eleven years previously, Dave had been given a vision of a cart wheel, which was fully ablaze with fire and light. When asking guidance what this was, the answer came, ‘It is The Wheel of Light. You will develop it.’ One evening in mid July, Dave sat down to bring some further guidance for the Council of Elders, when a pale bluish light began to circle him. It developed over the next two days, coming in with such force, that Dave described it like being run over by a train. For several hours it was impossible to move. From a gentle beginning, the Light built up its intensity to create a huge reservoir of light. This was the birth of The Wheel of Light. A stunning structure that would work in harmony with The Emerald Heart Light, and in fact provide a platform or structure to allow the next phase of development to take place. Dave showed the students the drawing he had produced in 2004 of how The Wheel of Light would function in taking the Light out into the world. Now here, some eleven years later, it had finally come into form and we now wait with anticipation to see how this helps us all, The Light Carriers, to take the Light out into the world.

Dave spoke about how his position has now changed. He was the spearhead that brought The Emerald Heart Light into our world, but now the front line of development would be taken up by The Council of Elders, and Dave was move into a position of guidance and support for them.

On to Mount Omberg
Next on the agenda was to journey up Mount Omberg to the crown of the mount, where Lynne Shaw conducted a Shamanic Journey. Walking up the mount, in reverence and respect, as we approached the summit our path was crossed by a black adder, a great symbol of transformation, and as it crossed the path, it was as if it was opening the door for us.
Lynne began with the rattle and song, opening the Earth Mother for us, whence we would all lie with our belly buttons upon the earth, and allow the shamanic journey to unfold and taking us deeply into the Earth Mother in the opening part of our connection, in preparation for the following day.

The Oak Woodland
From here we went to a woodland of mixed oak, both old and new, where we took our wonderful packed lunch from the Omberg Hotel. After lunch, we continued our shamanic journey connecting into the consciousness of the trees in a process of cleansing and balancing from the energies that had been released within us at the first part of our journey at the crown of Mount Omberg.

The Monastery at Alvastra
Next we visited the ruins of the 12th century Alvastra Monastery, where Rosa lead us in opening the womb to Mother Earth, again in preparation for Tuesday’s work. All teachers spoke on this subject, including Tim and Dave on their experiences of womb-like energies in men and how, at some level, we all have memory of being both sexes in different lives.

After the introduction and sharing, we all entered into the sacred space, finding a place that resonated with us and practicing the teaching of connecting the womb into Mother Earth.

The weather was stunning. Dragon flies landed on anyone who sat still for more than a few moments, some people being blessed with as many as seven at one time. It was a fascinating gift for everyone, and without doubt, deep experiences were had by all.

The Sacred Geometry of Sound
After another wonderful, 5-star dinner at the hotel, Rosa introduced the Sacred Geometry of Sound and played the Gongs for about a half hour. Powerful, resonant, deep and penetrating, the sound permeated every cell in our bodies, some of us physically vibrating to the sound, and many of us taking another half our to come back into full consciousness after this beautiful experience of transformational sound.

Today was all about opening, cleansing and balancing, so that tomorrow, all the Light Carriers can partake in bringing The Emerald Heart Light into the Heart of Mother Earth upon this sacred mountain. Under The Law of Reflection, we will then see what gifts are bestowed upon us in return.

Today had been incredibly powerful and these few lines cannot possibly convey the energies that have been experience, but at least we hope that it gives you a flavour of the wonder of being in such an amazing Light for a whole day, journeying, sharing and loving the process of deep change and transformation.

With Love and Blessings.

    Hi Emeralds

    It is Sunday when I write this and I haven’t got home yet.
    Firstly I would like to thank everyone for the most wonderful 2 days ever. When I booked to go, as did so many who came, questioned whether two days was long enough to justify the trip. Well what seemed like a week, as so much happened at such a deep level that I don’t think anyone could have done much more.

    I was planning to visit the Yew tree and Glastonbury Tor on my journey home, but as Sephora, Tim, Susan and I were diverted to Amsterdam because 0f the cracked windscreen. cracked ( you couldn’t have done much more damage to it if you have hit it full force with a sledge hammer ) and spending the night in a hotel before resuming our journey the following morning. I decided to head to a friends house first. I explained that I had intended to go to Glastonbury as I was not fully in tune with things at the last retreat as I was dealing with a lot of issues and I wanted to go back to see what happened this time. My friend thought I still needed to go and asked if she could come along too.

    I could go one go on for some time about our experience, but suffice is to say I caught up at last with last years energies, together with some interesting insights into the future.

    I’m hoping to finally get home tomorrow.

    Blessings to you all, Richard and thank you for your support

    Dear Emeralds,
    I have come away from this memorable Retreat at Mount Omberg with an incredible sense of Peace and inner calm which is still with me. A further transformation on this evolutionary journey has undoubtedly taken place and I thank you Dave for being the bringer of this Sacred Light so unique in the world today. Thank you also to the Council of Elders who have taken the rest of us through an amazing time by being in alignment with the Light of the Emerald Heart.
    It has been a joy to be with familiar faces again and meet up with some new faces too. As Lynne says, we are truly Blessed.
    Love as always,

  3. Lynne says:

    Dear Ones,
    The light from this incredible event is still pouring through me. I am so grateful to have been part of this wonderful experience. I know transformation has taken place as I feel so different. A lighter, brighter self is emerging.
    Thank you all so much for being part of this wonderful community. Thank you Dave for this amazing light you have brought into the world and have shared unceasingly for many years. We, the carriers of Light are truly blessed.
    Much love,

    Hi Emeralds,

    I can’t put it into words what this two days mean to me. It was such a powerful experiance. I feel now so much more anchored into the light, in this amazing powerful light and this makes me so greatful. Even when I had a really bad time coming home, just for 4 hours now and with many difficulties – I really got hard lessons – I just don’t wanted to miss this 2 days and the time with the Light, with Dave, the Elders and all the Emeralds. I love you all!

    Dear Light Carriers,

    back home again – but the energy of those deep and nurtering experiences I had during these magical days with you on Mount Omberg hasn´t left me. Something in my heart has definitely started to unfold. I have a hunch now what it really means to “see with my heart”. I don`t have to think it, I feel it!
    I feel blessed to work with teachers like you – thank you Dave, Yvonne, Lynn, Rosa and Tim! Thank you for supporting me in seeing my own truth and having the courage to live that truth – step by step as it unfolds.
    I am grateful to be part of this wonderful community. You are in my heart, always.

    With Love

    I am so happy for you all, bless you

  7. Thanks Dave.

    I spent yesterday by the sea connecting to you all and the Earth in meditation which was a beautiful experience. We had powerful cosmic alignments yesterday including ‘Star of David’ that have shifted us all in some way and brought in new energy to work with, perfect for assisting the important work on Mount Omberg today.

    Bless you all.
    With love
