DREAM LODGE RETREAT
A weekend wellness retreat devoted to exploring depths of soul with you for self understanding, healing, introspection, powerful transformation and change through daily Shamanic Journeying and Yoga.
Dream Lodge Retreat is designed to encourage, support and assist participants to both initiate and integrate positive Body, Mind, Spirit and Soul shifts and changes for transforming old patterns of self and the world as a mirror that show us pathways to enlightenment, self mastery and empowerment of the truth that resides deep within our hearts.
Retreat Immersive Highlights
– Health, Wellness and Wisdom Practices, Sacred Tools, Healing and Support of Spiritual Community, Kinship and Sacred Circle
– Light Body, Spirit and Ancestor Guides, and Past Life Journeys: Daily Shamanic Journeying Training with Reflections on Symbols, Signs, Omens and Archetypes
– Daily Yoga, Pranayama (intentional breathing), and Meditation
– Food Becomes Our Consciousness: Learning and Tasting Traditional Ayurvedic Cleansing Recipe and the Power of Sattvic Diet for Supporting Spiritual Practice
At this retreat you will experience three Shamanic Journeys that will open you to your connection with the spiritual worlds and enable you to both receive and retrieve information from your light-body (aura / chakras), your spirit and ancestor guides and any past life experiences that may be relevant for you to know and understand in order to grow and evolve in this life stream.
Each journey is presented in an interactive workshop format that allows all in attendance to learn not only from their own direct experiences, but also from the group as a mirror and teacher too.
A message from Rabbit: I am the fear caller, I call your fears of tragedy, illness, disaster and death forward to understand the lesson. What you resist will persist! What you fear most is what you will become. Stop talking about horrible things and rid “what if” from your vocabulary. Stop and be willing to feel the fear in you. Breathe into these feelings and feel them running through your body into Mother Earth as a give-away.
A message from Bear: The strength of Bear Medicine is the power of introspection. It lies in the West on the great medicine wheel of life. Bear seeks honey, or the sweetness of truth, within the hollow of an old tree. In the winter, when the Ice Queen reigns and the face of death is upon the Earth, Bear enters the womb-cave to hibernate, to digest the year’s experience. It is said that our goals reside in the West also. To accomplish the goals and dreams that we carry, the art of introspection in necessary.

While Robert’s shamanic journey workshops focus more on Spirit, the Heart and the Mind… Sheena’s yoga classes offer awareness and attention to the Physical Body as a sacred vessel and vehicle through which we can access wisdom. The vital and natural elemental forces and energies that comprise the physical self are both universal and unique to each individual, and when understood and honed, open one’s ability and capacity for their personal magic to manifest, for developing the inner knowingness around when, where and how to create more balance and harmony within… for becoming a more fully awakened and conscious co-creator.
Combined, these two ancient practices of Shamanic Journeying and Yoga provide a very grounded integrative approach to the spiritual work we will explore together. This intention brings ALL of you into the process of creating an experience that is embodied, balanced and complete in and of itself, enhancing and deepening both your conscious and intuitive understandings around the intimate relationship that exists between all aspects of self, and the self in relation to other, Nature and the cosmic whole.
Both Robert and Sheena are dedicated to providing safe space and sanctuary for reflection, rejuvenation and rejoicing in the truth, consciousness and bliss of Your Divine Nature.
Together, they create a ceremonial, sacred space for you to plant seeds of intention, pray and journey within, breathe deeply, expand and enter into altered states of consciousness and being-ness in order to access the answers, questions, insights, confirmation and guidance that you seek on this earth walk, in this precious incarnation.
