EarthStar Experiences 

The StarHouse and surrounding EarthStar land together form a beautiful sanctuary for the sacred ~ just minutes away from Boulder in a vast expanse of calm and quiet, nestled in the foothills at an altitude of 7,000 feet.

Envision a place in nature where the land, the structures, the community, the elements, and the unseen world are all held in right relationship.

Now imagine immersing yourself in this place, with a personal retreat {one, two, or three days} that includes your choice of a host of experiences offered by members of the StarHouse team of leaders and facilitators.

Examples include a vision quest on the land or in the dodecahedron, a Solar Cross reading in the StarHouse, a threshold-crossing ceremony to mark a significant milestone, a plant & planet session to become more familiar with the amazing medicinal herbs that are grown on the land and their healing qualities, and so much more.

A Geo-Mythic Initiation Journey through the 7 Major Sites with Lila Sophia Tresemer

This is an opportunity to create a Vision Quest of both personal and collective value.

Solar Cross Reading
with David Tresemer - Founder


What qualities streamed into you at your first breath? How can you work with these imprints to benefit this earthly sojourn? Who are the Star Brothers and Star Sisters from whom you can learn?

When you accept that your first breath (a.k.a. birth) was not random, it opens you to intimate conversation with the spirit-side of you that intended this particular birth-day, this particular quality. Based on years of research about each of the 360 gates (degrees) of the heavens, David Tresemer will guide you through an experience of the "star poem" of your birth, as well as the conditioning influences of the planets at that time. 

Price: $220 (1 hour)

 

 

Star Poem and Threshold Crossing
with David & Lila Tresemer


Working together, David and Lila will guide you over a meaningful crossing in response to a deeper knowing of your destiny and your sacred calling in this life. David will offer the full version of the Star Poem for your first breath in the StarHouse. Lila then works with you to highlight how the Star Poem image is valuable and relevant to you now. Based on that exploration, we will co-create a Threshold Crossing ritual to create the image gifted at your first breath into a somatic experience.

Overnight Vision Quest in the Dodecahedron


Lila Tresemer will facilitate a simple process of Inquiry in the sacred container of the Dodecahedron.

Spending 12 hours in this process will allow for an alignment of time and space, and offer a potential glimpse at Universal Intelligence as it moves from the pattern of the DNA to cosmic realms. Lila will be your guide to enter this space with Intention, and to spend a night in silence and reflection.

Rolfing® Structural Integration Bodywork


Rolfing® is the original method of Structural Integration. It is an holistic approach that utilizes soft tissue manipulation and movement education to realign the body in the earth’s gravitational field. Much like a sculptor works with clay, a Rolfer™ applies hands-on pressure to the body’s living, malleable system of fascia (connective tissue) to lengthen, invite fluidity, and release restrictions and patterns of tension.
