PATH OF THE EARTH HEALER
A three day journey rooting you deeply in Gaia's magnificence. Develop your skills in communicating with Mother Earth, learning to receive her support in life and your healing work. Perhaps more importantly, learn how to draw Universal energy into the Gaia for her healing. A very "hands on" experience working in ceremony in the City of the Rocks National Reserve, Idaho.
Traditionally this work was done by Shamans, but we all have encoded in our DNA memories of Earth communion. This retreat is about awakening these abilities and giving practical tools to help facilitate this work. Remembering how to work as a community on a healing project is also part of the experience, so expect some great memories too!
Some key objectives include:
Learn to communicate with the Land via trance and meditative state.
Use the Shamanic drum and plant teachers such as Sage, Frankincense, Mugwort tea and (optionally) Rapé- inhaled ceremonial tobacco.
Working with elemental Magik of Earth, Air, Fire & Water.
Working with crystal grids and Magik circles.
Dowsing for Ley lines to find centres of power in the Earth field.
Creating a ceremonial space for Land healing.
Working with Fairies, Angels and other Universal forces to create powerful healing.
Some of our activities will include:
Ceremonies on the land by the light of the full moon and also sunrise.
A fire ceremony to let go of personal fears.
Creating Magik circles for personal and ancestral healing.
Learning how to dowse with a pendulum.
Modest amounts of hiking- accessible to most fitness levels.

Sturdy shoes/boots for hiking.
Sunscreen/hat/sunglasses etc for days out in the National Reserve.
Yoga Mat/pillow/blanket/blindfold or scarf.
Shamanic Drum/rattle/flute/any portable instrument - if you have one.
Any other crystals or healing tools you wish to empower during the retreat.
Ideally, a pendulum. These can be bought or if you wish made with a metal washer and piece of string. The former will have a more ceremonial feel and can be fine tuned to your energy. Use your intuition as to what crystal would be good for you.

"You provided a safe and nurturing space to explore and share our most intimate stories.
The programme was varied and imaginative, with gentle yet challenging ways to uncover and work with the deep patterns that are blocking our progress.
Your style: easy going, open, accepting, respectful, totally supportive and non-judgemental, full of compassion, committed to helping.
I felt uplifted and inspired, hopeful, validated."
