"The Big Glow retreat experience is a living symphony composed of various heart opening movements or phases. Each movement is grounded in the expressed intention of the group, and galvanized through presence, into the effortless unfolding of each magical now. Every individual works as one aspect of the whole and simultaneously co-creates, witnesses, and participates in the full expression of each movement as it arises. As the group collectively travels through, and reflects upon each movement, it gains a deeper awareness of itself, and transforms into something completely new."

"I have attended multiple Big Glow retreats with Brian, and in each, I experienced co-creating an intentional, spiritual community with other participants, deep connections with others, and new insights into my own being. The retreat environment calls forth and nurtures my highest self, helps me release negatives and ideas of self-limitation, embrace my potential, and find new wellsprings of joy inside myself."
Shan Gill Atlanta, GA
"I had the privilege of doing a reading with John at a Channeling retreat he was co-teaching. I was floored and amazed by the information I received. I have been read many times by different intuitive psychics and mediums. I even do some channeling and Tarot card reading myself for others. However, this is the first time I have been read by a “collective consciousness”. John’s voice even changed and messages were delivered in a way to reveal and explain universals truths that applied to my questions and situations. The 'Collective' even referred to John in the third person, making it even more evident his role in the process was to be a clear channel. Of course we discussed some of the information received and came up with some practical steps as well. But this was the first time I have gotten what I call Universal Truth guidance in a reading, and some of it changed my understanding forever! Thank you John!"


“I know from years of experience, there is something so valuable about getting away and joining others in coming into alignment with your own authenticity. The Big Glow retreats are a unique, wonderful weekend of insight, connection and enlightenment as an experiential answer to life’s deeper questions. The intention of these unique retreats is to come together with others on a path of living more consciously, with greater self-awareness, and open-heartedness, in every aspect of our lives for greater well-being in oneself and the world at large.”  – Brian Piergrossi (author & Founder of The Big Glow)

A supportive, inspiring, intimate space of natural beauty is provided to come together as a community with others to transform ourselves, our future and our world, in a positive way.

These retreats are a weekend long, unique, evolving exploration, experiential exercise, and inquiry into what it means to live fully, present and alive to each moment, ever more deeply moving into the vast power of this Now, free from the burdens and anxieties of past and future.

Brian, Annie, John & Kathy & Shana will be facilitating events during the retreat. There will be smaller group circles each day as well.

The Big Glow Retreat is a co-creative experience. It is a group experiment in awakening to the conscious potential of each moment… An opportunity to relax and open up to a deeper level of authenticity, clarity, purpose and connection. All communal meals are vegetarian cuisine, with vegan, gluten free and raw food options.

Participants share music, dance, yoga, hiking, bodywork, and stimulating, heartfelt, intimate conversation with new friends and old.

There is plenty of solitary space for silent contemplation and meditation, as well as a weekend filled with many unexpected miracles and inspirational moments.

This relaxed, rejuvenating, intimate retreat will have space available 20 participants so space is very limited. Reserve immediately and take advantage of early bird special to assure your spot.

Come ready and open to share your unique gifts and wisdom and receive the gifts of others on the path. Come with the intention to create one of the most incredible weekends of your life!

Space is very limited. Register above to reserve your spot!

Brian Piergrossi  -Author & Founder of The Big Glow
Brian Piergrossi is the Author of The Big Glow and The Wow of the Now, Life Coach, Spiritual Teacher At the age of 20 years old, Brian was suddenly struck by a mysterious, debilitating illness, later labeled chronic fatigue syndrome, that lasted for years, leaving him in intense, daily, physical pain and too weak to effectively function in society. When no medical or other authority figure could explain the suffering that was happening to him, Brian made it his life commitment to inquire into human suffering. What began was over 11 years of committed, serious inquiry, study and personal application into the fields of spirituality, religion, psychology, sociology, cosmology, ecology, health, arts, science, yoga, as well as the core of the enlightenment and self-realization teachings. After leading a quiet, simple life for over a decade, Brian felt a passionate calling to share his straight forward, timeless, spiritual truths for the 21st Century in a modern context with those who are ready and interested. Since that time, Brian has dedicated himself full time, professionally, and privately, to supporting the path of transformation, spiritual liberation and Self-Realization in individuals, families and communities around the world. His highly acclaimed books and the viral internet sensation ‘Love is the New Religion/Spiritual Conspiracy’ continue to inspire new readers worldwide. He works one on one, by phone, Skype, and in person with influential personal life coaching clients from around the world of all walks of life. He leads transformative Big Glow retreats, classes and workshops internationally. Brian has shared his message as a featured guest on numerous radio and television programs. He has lectured at colleges, schools, festivals, expos and conferences. His online writings are shared to thousands of readers worldwide each day.

With the unrelenting sole intention of educating and facilitating the awakening of consciousness and creating the New Earth inside individuals and communities around the world, Brian Piergrossi is an emerging voice of the integration of awakened spirituality, peak performance and human potential in the 21st Century for a growing population around the world. “When the pillars of my limited mind collapsed, the roof caved in and I could take in the beauty of the stars.” -Brian Piergrossi

John Stringer – Life Teacher, Healer, Billboard charting singer, Author
John Stringer is a life teacher, speaker, billboard charting singer-songwriter, healer, and author with a passion for music, community, expansion and limitless love and light. He currently serves as Co-Founder of MasterMomentMakers.com; Founder of PolyPlat Records; Partner at The Flight Foundation, Inc, and a True Collaboration leader at BandingPeopleTogether.com.

He began channeling with his wife, Kathy Stringer, in 2008, using the practice daily for their own personal guidance and eventually sharing guidance anonymously on a now non-existent website for a few years. When Kathy and John first asked the name of the collective consciousness (or guides) he initially channeled, the simple reply was: “I am Reality and I am Love. Yes. My name is less important than your focus on what I bring.” Over time, the guides helped him realize how to align with Source so that he channels from his Higher Self / Divine intelligence.  John aligns to speak publicly, write music & lyrics; serve others in group, remote & one-on-one channeling sessions; and write content for his websites and books that share the teachings he continues to receive.

He travels extensively, speaking and playing at concerts, workshops, spiritual centers, churches, conferences, retreats and festivals while sharing his uplifting and healing music and message through songs from his debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light,” his follow up album, “Moment to Moment,” and channeled teachings found in his new book, The Abundance Vibration: A Guide to Alignment.

In 2015 she began co-managing and booking her husband, John Stringer, as he traveled extensively speaking and playing at concerts, colleges/universities, workshops, spiritual centers, churches, conferences, retreats and festivals while sharing his uplifting and healing music and message through songs from his debut solo album, “Limitless Love & Light;” his follow up album, “Moment to Moment;” and channeled teachings found in his new book, The Abundance Vibration: A Guide to Alignment. Currently she and John own and operate Healing Arts Management where they represent Billboard charting, award-winning, platinum-selling musicians, authors and speakers who are raising the vibration of the world with their passion and message.
