The energy here on Mount Shasta seems more powerful than ever this Summer. I’ve had the chance to take quite a few folks on hikes to sacred spots up on the mountain. Almost invariably, they have a powerful experience of letting go of old fears and pain and coming deeply into the joy of the Present. It’s quite extraordinary to observe how Mt. Shasta does it work on everyone regardless of their beliefs and lifestyle. The energy here is so pure that it’s hard to spend even a few hours up on the mountain and not feel deeply renewed and refreshed.
