The Wild Cosmic Heart Retreat: Meditation + Shamanic Immersion | November 4, 2018 - November 10, 2018

The Wild Cosmic Heart Retreat: Meditation + Shamanic Immersion

The Wild Cosmic Heart Retreat is a dynamic experience that combines meditation and shamanic practices designed to awaken our untamed heart. Participants will explore heart-centered practices of shamanic journeying, meditation, sound healing, sacred water and fire ceremonies, and yoga classes.

Experience the exquisite and ecstatic energy of your heart that connects you to your authentic self.  Using primarily classic meditation methods, shamanic journeying, guided visualizations, as well as other experiential practices, we will explore some important aspects of the heart. We will be drawing on the physical and energetic experiences as well as the inspiration of poetry and lore from various cultures, myths and spiritual traditions to awaken our untamed heart. Our week long retreat includes experiencing shamanic practices and other rituals to awaken and access our greatest source of power – our heart.

Our days will start with morning meditation, poetry, gentle yoga, and quiet practices. Many of our afternoons are left free to enjoy and explore the abundant resources and natural beauty. In the evenings, after dinner, we will gather for heart circles that might include: shamanic journeying, chanting, movement, sacred play, sharing, and creative expression. Each practice will give us the opportunity to explore and unearth our wild cosmic heart.

The retreat includes:

Exploring heart-centered meditations and mantras ▪ shamanic journeying/guided visualizations ▪ sound healing and movement ▪ sacred play ▪ mindfulness practices ▪ experiencing sacred rituals and fire ceremonies ▪ nature walks & quiet time ▪ gentle yoga classes ▪ Hawaiian Cultural Events!
