☥ An awareness retreat is an opportunity to unplug from everyday reality in order to tap into the Higher Intelligence at work in our lives. For 3 days, the sangha will have opportunities to explore alternate modes of being, directly challenging accumulated mental patterns that are not serving their highest potential. All of the practices shared are simple, yet effective means of cultivating an awareness that one can sustain even amidst the chaos of everyday affairs.

This will be a shamanic journey in a powerful chi field, where Mother Earth’s life force is particularly active. Beautiful scenes in Nature will serve as the backdrop for a total reset of the body and mind. The experience is not for the casual seeker wanting a simple vacation. You can expect to face personal triumphs and challenges, supernatural occurrences, and other manifestations that will illuminate different facets of both your light, and shadow side.


Is this healing journey for you?

  • You recognize meditation, yoga postures, chanting, and other ancient practices as vital to well-being, and aren’t afraid to explore them in depth
  • You take full responsibility for your reality, yet also believe in a Higher Power at work
  • Longevity, quality of life, and alignment with nature all have special appeal to you
  • You aren’t afraid to address your own mental/emotional and spiritual blocks
  • You don’t shy away from ideas about Higher Intelligence, Ascended Masters, and supernatural phenomena
