About This Event

Our deep-seated beliefs about life are shaped and conditioned by early life experience.  like hidden software programs, these beliefs effect how we show up in our lives, how we inhabit our bodies, and how act in our relationships.

This conditioning can block access to our essence, or Buddha nature, as open, alert, and

compassionate human beings.

Shamanic and meditative practices are both ancient

technologies designed put you in touch with your essential self, and paradoxically, with what stands in the way of it’s full expression

People who have previously worked with shamanic practices can notice that the insights and openings that are part of the potency of this tyupe of experience receed from awareness as our habits reassert themselves within the familiar contours of day to day life.

In this 5 day retreat we will be working actively with the mindfulness processes

that spur deeper long term integration.

One of the gifts of both meditation and shamanic practices lies in their ability to expand awareness by opening up sensory gating channels , the neurological filters that shape

perception, so that we are able to observe a broader reality both within ourselves and through our senses. This often gives access to the emotionally active past still held in the body. The release of these imprints can open up a new space for powerful change, insight and

deep connection to manifest. For this inner transformation to be sustained

as long-term learning, requires an integration process. Practices that help anchor, in the brain and body,  new neural networks, and the novel habits that expresses this learning as a new default setting.

During this five day retreat you will learn how to use shamanic and

meditative awareness to observe, unravel, and hold in a new way

the aspects of your life experience that you may have pushed away, or distracted yourself  from in the past. The  Buddhist practice

of Loving Kindness, when we bring it home to ourselves, has us replacing separation and

compartmentalization, with a newfound ability to gather all of our life

story within our own embrace. Rather than acting out the past as our conditioning, we do the work of transforming it within ourselves.
