Original Instructions Skills Immersion Week in Iceland

About us

Join Original Instructions instructors Rachael Henrichsen and Brittany Jade and give yourself the gift of this detoxifying and rejuvenating Original Instructions Skills Immersion Week beneath the majestic Aurora Borealis. Take the time to retreat into the transformative winter of the Icelandic countryside while delving into the hands-on practices of Chinese medicine, Chinese astrology and divination. This healing skills immersion week includes comprehensive acupuncture and medicinal plant treatments for each attendee in addition to the invaluable education the Original Instructions School always provides.

During your skills immersion we will have the opportunity to stargaze and view the Northern Lights while honing your skills in traditional diagnostic methods according to Chinese medicine and the navigating of reality through divination and astrology. During our time together we will also nourish ourselves with a customized healing diet of whole foods and medicinal plants as we learn about their applicable constituents and method of preparation. Nearby sacred sites will provide us will an inspirational landscape for our Original Instructions field trips to historically relevant marvels of nature.

An important and unique aspect of our Original Instructions Icelandic skills immersion is the amount of care given to each attendees’ personal healing and rejuvenation throughout the retreat. Daily doses of glacial mineral spring water filtered through volcanic rock, geothermal tub soaking and personalized healing treatments make this skills immersion week a holistic sensory experience as well as an educational adventure.

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
