ILLUMINATION OF SPIRIT RETREAT
A three day Canadian forest retreat aimed at connecting people with their inner magic. Learn to live as an empowered Soul and inspire others to do the same.
This retreat is particularly aimed at people who feel they are here to help others on their path- through healing, art, teaching or the offering of any type of service, including parenthood. In awakening our own Authentic nature, we can be better mirrors for others authenticity. This technique is commonly known as "spaceholding"- the creation of an energetic field in which people can shift their energy and consciousness.
Key objectives will include:
Overcoming personal, ancestral and societal patterns that limit you.
Connecting more deeply with your Higher Spirit.
Learning to weave the Unseen world into the physical to create your best life.
Activating your Divine Blueprint, enhancing consciousness and cultivating your spiritual gifts.
Developing your Kundalini flow and learn to harness this universal creative power.
Combining the above process to assist you in becoming the embodiment of your Soul and to fulfil your purpose in this lifetime.
Some of the tools we will use include:
Shamanic Drumming and journeying, chanting, mantra work and meditation.
Plant Medicines- Cacao (100% raw chocolate grown by Shamans in Peru for ceremony) and Rapé (inhaled ceremonial tobacco). The latter is entirely optional. Cacao is a wonderful teacher plant, who opens the heart centre and bring emotional presence. Rapé brings a strong mental presence and intuitive insights. Both help with purging old emotions and experiences. Used together, they form an incredible combination for deep work.
Work with Archetypal energies such as the Warrior, Lover, Healer and Magician.
Working with Elemental energies of Earth, Fire, Air and Water.

The venue and travel arrangements:
Pure Awareness is an exquisite retreat site, eco-friendly and sustainably run. It is nestled in acres of unspoiled forest yet conveniently located just outside Winfield, Alberta. This is just one hour drive from Edmonton International Airport and 2.5hrs drive from Calgary. If traveling from further afield, Banff and Jasper national parks are within striking distance to extend the visit.
Your ceremony facilitator is Dr Aki Lalani. Aki is trained in both conventional medicine and wide variety of healing modalities (several Reiki types, sound healing, Shamanic healing, crystals, tarot, meditation, plant medicine work). His spiritual awakening and transition from total skeptic, was triggered by having PTSD from serving as a front line doctor in Afghanistan during his time in the British Army. He lives just outside London, UK and has an international client base. He runs a wide variety of ceremonies and healing spaces both in the UK and overseas.
"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.
It was also a great deal of fun! Thank you so much."
