We are pleased to announce the tentative schedule of events at the 2017 Spiritual and Psychic Sasquatch Conference and Retreat. Pricing, tickets, and other event details are available on Eventbrite at this link:


Kewaunee and Kelly Lapseritis are hosting the second annual Spiritual and Psychic Sasquatch Conference on Friday September 1st through Sunday September 3rd, 2017 at the Chewelah Peak Learning Center in Chewelah, Washington.

On behalf of the Sasquatch People, Mother Earth, and all of Humanity, we propose a spiritual and ecological approach to healing our planet and our own collective soul consciousness. We are all related, all children of Mother Earth, and it is our responsibility to live and work together to create peace and harmony for all living beings. Our speakers will share their own personal encounters with these sentient beings as well as the messages that have been shared with them to assist in improving and healing ourselves, relationships, and perspective realities. This year, we will also be offering workshops on various spiritual, metaphysical, shamanic, and self-help subjects such as meditation, learning how to use spiritual tools, psychic readings, energy artists, healing sessions, etc. which may be subject to additional fees by the vendors and workshop presenters.

The conference event begins at 9:00am on Friday, September 1st and ends at 6:00pm on Sunday, September 3rd, 2017. Campers may arrive on Thursday evening (8/31) to stay overnight as well in their own tents or in the bunk house with the purchase of tickets which include overnight stay(s). Bedding such as pillows, blankets, sleeping bags, etc. are NOT provided, so please prepare by bringing your own bedding. A few bunks and RV spaces may be reserved for our guests, but unless it is marked as such, they are on a first come, first serve basis. Each attendee is responsible for their own property. For guests who purchase only a one-day pass, we ask that you please leave the campus by 9pm.

The main speakers for the event will present in the large Lodge between the hours of 9am – 5pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Some workshops will also be available during break times and in the evenings in a separate building. We will also have planned ceremonies lead by elders and spiritual sharing circles in the evenings in the pavilion or amphitheater areas. There are also hiking trails on site and there will be many opportunities to meditate, hike, explore, connect with others, etc. The outdoor amphitheater seats about 150-200 people but we also encourage lawn chairs for comfort throughout your stay at this wilderness retreat. Please also bring your musical instruments and spiritual tools that you may wish to use, share, or teach to others. Some may want to teach healing or meditation with crystals, tarot readings, reiki work, massage, etc.


The Chewelah Peak Learning Center is located at 3215 Flowery Trail Rd., nine miles east of Chewelah. There is a main lodge where the largest part of the conference will take place, and there are also 2 building of dorm bunks (200 beds), restrooms and showers, a dining hall, RV parking, library, outdoor amphitheater and pavilion, fire pits, and other accommodations.

During the event, all guests have access to the whole facility (unless otherwise marked).  Please be respectful if there is another group using other buildings.

Cooking outdoors is permitted as long as it is properly cleaned up afterward. There is also an outdoor pavilion with a grill or you may also bring a small grill or cooking stove.

For anyone planning a trip from afar, Spokane International Airport (GEG) is the closest to Chewelah. Chewelah is about 60 miles from the airport (almost 90 minutes with traffic). There is a bus service called Gold Line that can transport you from the airport to the city of Chewelah, but the only stop in town is at the Safeway gas station which is 9 miles from the Chewelah Peak Learning Center up Flowery Trail Rd (Main St.) and bus schedule times are limited. Gold Line’s bus fares are currently $22 from the airport to Chewelah. You can learn more about Gold Line here

There is also the Coeur d’Alene airport in Idaho which is also about a 90 minute drive from Chewelah but I do not know of any provided transportation from there.

There are also 3 main motels in town: The Chewelah Creek Inn, Nordlig Motel, and Chewelah Motel and RV Park. There are also places available to camp outside of the Chewelah Peak Learning Center if you choose. Surrounding towns include Usk, Cusick, Newport, Colville, Kettle Falls, Arden, Addy, Valley, Springdale, Loon Lake, Deer Lake, Deer Park, Clayton, which are all within 30 miles of Chewelah.

We are excited about this event and so are the Sasquatch People! Like last year’s first annual Spiritual and Psychic Sasquatch Conference, they are gathering many tribes and leaders for this event to connect with kindred spirits. This event is a one-of-a-kind and may be unconventional from other conferences, but that is what we want! Feel comfortable being yourself, sharing your experiences, learning from others, and connecting with higher vibrations.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Kelly Lapseritis at

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Thank you and best blessings!

Kelly and Kewaunee Lapseritis
