Winter Solstice 2012 Shamanic Healing Retreat
We invite you to join us for a very special healing retreat over the winter solstice 2012.
One of the most important aspects to working within the traditional contexts of shamanic healing with these plants is adhering to a time-honoured tradition of following a special diet in order to prepare not just the body, but also the mind and soul to be able to receive the healing energy of plants and spirits.
The investment for this retreat is £900 / €1,111. This includes all meals, accommodation and plant medicines. Personal massage and healing sessions will be available and can be booked in advance or while on retreat. There are a limited number of concessional spaces available (including concessional rates to Portugese participants), please contact us for more details.
The help you gave me has helped the people I know and the clients I help in ways I never before imagined. I am in tune with my emotions and life force again, maybe even for the first time. I have experienced deeper and more profound realisations as time has past and made sense of my emotional surroundings in a way I never before thought possible.
Your guidance and spiritual leadership in my journey was beautiful in every way possible, I feel an affinity with everything and a connection with the earth and I owe that to you. I didn't know what to expect even though I read up on the healing ceremony for days and made the necessary preparations in my diet.
Now I believe I understand the true nature of the message I was given and I want to allow myself to be shown the way again, I was so close to experiencing things beyond my comprehension that it made me scared that I would shed my humanity to the point it would be irreversible. I know this is not true and the sense of trust I have for the your space and the plant medicine is the kind that a son has for his parents.
I have the deepest sense of love and kindness for you both and when ever I think of the time I spent with everyone and you both my heart shivers with joy and excitement and a warm glow embraces my whole being. I cannot thank you enough."
What I can say is how continually impressed I have been with Ali's approach to the medicine; light and gentle yet sincere and utterly dedicated. The retreat reflected this; there were times to laugh, times to go off and swim in the lagoon and enjoy the beauty of the jungle; and time outisde time, spaces of silence in which to go deep with the medicine in it's ancient home, facing its teachings with courage and discipline.
Being on retreat is demanding and rewarding; it is true spiritual work. Throughout the time we spent I felt supported and appreciated, and emerged feeling reborn. I would recommend the retreat to anyone who feels both the call and the commitment to it."
