A four day celebration of our unique Soul origins. Beyond the story of being human, what do you connect with? Do you feel somehow "different"? This retreat is for you. A safe space to come out of the "spiritual closet" and celebrate who you really are with like minded people. An opportunity to work with a variety of tools, including plant medicines, to help transcend the limitations of the ego mind and step into a space that's calling you HOME.

This retreat will be split into three parts.

First Phase:

A journey downwards into the wounded space, giving opportunity for more light and compassion to come through them. Moving through these moments of turmoil allows us to reconnect with lost parts of ourselves- known in Shamanic practice as Soul or Essence retrieval.

Second Phase:

A journey upwards into our Cosmic, Celestial and Star Origins. We have lived more evolved states in past lives. Reconnecting with these aspects of ourselves allows us to bring in wisdom, love and spiritual gifts from these times. Expect rapid shifts and a deep sense of peace.

Third Phase:

A journey outwards bringing healing to the land and collective around us. Having connected into our more evolved natures, we will create a ceremony for a collective shift. Pure Awareness Retreats is located very close to one of the most powerful energy centres in North America.

UGV 8 (see image below) is a confluence point of major energy lines. One of those energy lines comes from Majorville Medicine Wheel- a 5000 year old sacred site. We will set a powerful healing intent of bringing the Starlove down into the Earth grids.

Some of the tools we will use include:

  • Plant Medicines- Cacao (100% raw chocolate grown by Shamans in Peru for ceremony).Cacao is a wonderful teacher plant, who opens the heart centre and brings emotional presence. Hapé (inhaled ceremonial tobacco). This brings a strong mental presence and intuitive insights from beyond the rational mind. Mapacho (a tobacco tea) used for deep emotional and physical transformation. This is one of the most powerful legal plant medicines. All plant medicine work is guided and optional. Doses can be varied to individual sensitivities. 

  • Group-work.

  • Guided Meditation.

  • Shamanic Drumming and Journeying.

  • Fire ceremonies.

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.

Retreat Facilitator:

Your retreat 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.

"If you want a guide for delving into your subconscious and removing blocks and creating alignment, there are none better than Aki."

"You provided a safe and nurturing space to explore and share our most intimate stories. 

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."

"An experience that has forever changed my being. I have so much gratitude for the Universe guiding me to Aki."

 “You held the space with so much humility, flexibility and strength! Created a space where people could take care of their own needs. You have such a calm, soothing, gentle, tender way of being and yet with strength and power."

"In terms of the plant medicine offerings, Aki respects the medicines and makes sure to approach the ceremonies with grace and presence. He also respects that each person may have their own boundaries with taking plant medicines so nothing is mandatory and the offerings are provided with information and knowledge so you can make your own decision about what is right for you. Because of this, it was easy to feel comfortable accepting the medicines and working with them in a respectful and intuitive way."
