Shamanic Retreat Day 1

April 13, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT


This weekend will be about sinking deeper into practice, experience, community and respite. Although we will use specific methods that you can take home with you, the focus of this weekend is less on learning methods and more on having experiences. We will create ceremony together, we will work with the elements, we will process individually and in pairs and groups. We will connect to our sources of spiritual guidance and healing to help manage stress, and bring peace and balance to our lives. We will reflect conceptually and practically on how we can serve in ways that feel sustainable and emotionally feasible. We will nourish ourselves and each other.

Shamanic journeying experience is helpful but not required. On March 21st I’m holding a Shamanic Journeying Intro if you want to get some experience.

Retreats Topics

  • disconnecting to reconnect – as research increasingly shows, our connection to technology is causing some trouble. Time away from our devices is time to reset and recommit to what is meaningful to each of us
  • personal rejuvenation – refueling and soaking up healing and support from the spirits and each other
  • ceremony – creating and performing ceremonies together to focus on some specific outcomes of your choosing, and also on shifting/creating new energy in our lives
  • working with the elements and nature – deepening our spiritual connection for healing and restoration
  • creating community – expanding our personal and collective networks of like-minded people to strengthen the web of light that we are a part of locally and universally
  • although this weekend is not about methods per se, much of what we do together, such as the ceremonial work, you will be able to replicate at home and add to your personal spiritual tool kit

Space is limited.
