Divine Healing Transformation
Rob Wergin
Unpleasant life experiences create energetic stagnation and blockages in the mind and body. During this healing week with Rob, you will experience hands-on healing transformations and Divine Light transmissions, and release physical, mental and emotional discomfort, pain, disease, and addictions, reconnecting to your true expression and vibrant health. Through lectures, discussions, and shared explorations, you will restore and maintain a joyful healing connection with the Divine.

Retreat to Spirit
Amina Naru & Pamela Stokes Eggleston
Imagine a new paradigm of compassionate co-leadership that is rooted in conscious relationship, self-care, vibrational alignment, and contemplative practice. When our inner spirit is depleted, everything suffers, including our service to others. This immersion is designed for everyone—including those in leadership roles at home and work, those wishing to become leaders, and those searching to discover embodied connections. Amina and Pamela, founders of Retreat to Spirit, share their distinctive leadership model.

 


Week 3 • January 23-30

Choose one of these in-depth workshops during Week 3.

Touching the Jaguar:
Rise to Higher Consciousness
John Perkins
Shamans, therapists, quantum physicists, and thought leaders know that reality is changed by altering perceptions. From the Amazon jungle to the Himalayas, shamans have taught that, to end crises, we must “confront our jaguars” and face the fears that block our access to higher consciousness. Join John, author of the New York Times best seller, Touching the Jaguar, as he guides you on shapeshifting journeys to raise consciousness and transform personal and global crises.

Freedom & Belonging:
An Embodied Exploration
Michaela Boehm
Through solo explorations, partnered processes, and somatic movement, we work with our constrictions, concerns, and contractions around intimacy, the erotic, and our desired relationships. We explore our relational patterns both through ancestral and familial patterning as we release the imprints of previous relationships. This retreat is designed to connect you more deeply with your body as an instrument of perception and connection. We utilize nature to awaken and expand the senses so you become more powerfully in tune with your relationships, creativity, community, and self.

Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics
Jeff Warren
All forms of meditation are built from a few core skills. They are: the rigorous pleasure of concentration, the electric zing of clear awareness, the transformative super-juice of equanimity, and finally—like a plump cherry at the top of our meditative sundae—the loving kindness of care. From these fine ingredients, so many good things come. This week is about empowering attendees to customize their own practice and explore what it means to be their own teacher. Also, there will be jokes.
