Reiki 1 and 2 Retreat- Walk the Path of the Healer!

Event Highlights

  • Reiki is a type of spiritual healing using the universal life force energy that exists naturally, within and without us. If ones life force energy is low or depleted, we are more likely to get sick, feel stressed or anxious. The Reiki practitioner harnesses the energy and allows it to flow through themselves for their own self healing or that of another recipient. When it is increased during a Reiki healing session, the natural chakra balancing that occurs, allows you to feel calmer, more healthy and happy.
  • Because there is no particular religious belief system attached to Reiki, it is suitable for anybody and is a simple and natural method of spiritual healing and self- improvement that has been effective with virtually every known illness. Although there is no guarantee of a cure, it always creates beneficial results and works in conjunction with all medical and therapeutic techniques, to relieve side effects and enhance whatever natural healing is taking place. Those who use Reiki regularly, often find they are more joyful, lively and that their own innate energy is enhanced. Existing conflicts within the body are broken down and there is a greater vitality, leading to relaxation and stimulation of the energy body.
  • Mount Shasta is an international destination for spiritual seekers and is considered the root chakra of the earth. Receiving attunements here enhances the potential to deepen quickly your power as healer.
  • Here is a recent email from a client who received a Reiki 3 attunement: "The attunement has had both physical and whole being components. I experienced tingling on my head so intensely in the first week that I actually had someone check my head at one point to see if something was there lol. It felt like electricity at times or someone touching me lightly on the head at other moments. Or/also pressure or a sense of openness in the back/top of my head for the first 3 days. I've had a much clearer stronger connection to messages in general, but especially when working with Reiki on someone. I've also had a lot of things come together in a beautiful way and create complete pictures, whereas I had only part of the pictures previously. I also feel a deep sense of calm and surety of step and being that's different."

"Words cannot even begin to express the shift I have experienced in my life since taking Alan's Mt. Shasta Spiritual Retreat Reiki 1 and 2 certification course! My entire life has changed to such a degree that is unspeakably profound! He has a way of tuning into people around him that makes you feel understood and accepted as you are. You couldn't ask for a better instructor.
As I have said, my life has transformed in every way imaginable. Mainly due to his gift he has shared with me, but also due to the energy and work I have put into my life after taking his course! I think it is always important to remember that a teacher is a student as much as a student is a teacher! I felt no hierarchy when in is presence. He is down to earth, a part of earth, yet seemingly transcendental in consciousness!
I look forward to advancing my understanding of him as well as his path in the coming future!
Thank you Alan for being a blessing upon this planet, this land, the peoples here, but most of all to the creatures and elements within existence upon this realm as well as others! You are truly blessed!"

Venue Highlights

The Center is Located near the base of Mount Shasta. Mount Shasta located in Northern California is a increasingly popular destination for spiritual seekers from all over the world. With a summit of 14,125 feet above sea level, Mt.Shasta is the second highest peak in the Cascade Mountain range and has the largest mass of any single mountain in the USA. Considered to be dormant, this volcano is said to be one of the most likely to have a major eruption, though probably not for another 400 years or so!

Considered to be the root chakra of Mother Earth, Mount Shasta or Apu Shasta (mountain spirit) as she is also known, by the Q’ero Indians of Peru, is the site of many strange and wonderful myths and legends. A crystal city inside the Mountain, peopled by a 5th dimensional race known as the Lemurians, sightings of Ascended Masters, most notably Saint Germaine and many reported sightings of interstellar visitors are all part of the folklore that make this place one of the most sacred and mystical on Earth.
We located our healing center here, not only because of the incredible beauty but because the Sacred Mountain is considered to be one of the most powerful vortexes on the planet and a place with magnified healing power.

As part of the retreat we will take you on a guided trip to some Sacred Sites


We are located on 5 beautiful wooded acres with an awesome view of Mount Shasta. We have a main lodge with 4 queen beds and one twin and many sleeping pads to position indoors or outdoors. Also tent camping (we provide tents, pads etc)
A large patio and a separate gazebo with a queen bed, allow you to sleep under the stars on warm nights

      Deep healing work at Sacred Valley Healing Center

    I was introduced to Alan in 2017, and spent a week at the Sacred Valley Healing Center to address some blockages, and to learn how I could best heal the deepest aspects at the root of significant health and life challenges. Alan provided top-notch attention, service, and healing modalities. Not only were the surroundings breathtakingly beautiful, and healing in themselves, Alan’s caring individual attention allowed me to release and let go of psychic weight that I had been carrying for many years. He empowered me to release old narratives that no longer served me. Each day was a beautiful adventure into learning to reconnect with the wisdom of nature and the inner power that I had neglected through the rigmarole of daily life. The meals were all prepared with nourishing, delicious, and healthy ingredients, and the restful environment enabled a safe space to let go and dive into some challenging work. Upon meeting Alan, it is evident that he is very capable and experienced, and a nurturing soul who is wholly invested in the wellbeing and positive transformation of his guests. I will always fondly remember my time at the center, and look forward to returning in the future. If you are looking for a powerful healer who is truly invested in bringing out the wholeness that facilitates deep healing, Alan should be at the top of your list.

      2 Day Retreat

    I went to visit Alan for a solo 2-day retreat one month ago, and the day after my birthday. His place is very inviting with an incredible view of the mountain, and I immediately felt at home there. Alan showed me to my room which also happens to be where the healings take place. It's a suite that has a separate entrance from the rest of the house, and it felt lovely to be surrounded by his incredible collection of crystals, and all kinds of other sacred objects arranged in a very elaborate formation. Alan was incredibly present, nurturing and dedicated to the very intense process that unfolded over the 3 healing sessions. I've tried to describe what took place to a few close friends, but it's hard to convey all of the potent nuances so I've stopped trying. In short, it was everything I needed and more. Immediately upon leaving his place things started to shift for me in terms of my perception of self and how I've been viewing the world. And it wasn't pretty! The best way to relate it is that it felt like a hot compress had been put on an infected wound. There has been a lot of old pain coming up as I've been forced to see myself with new eyes. About 3 days ago something big finally set in. I was standing in my kitchen and became aware of this contraction that I've had as long as I can remember, that travels in my front body to the back, wrapping around my entire spinal chord. I've been for all kinds of bodywork over the years to address this issue as it's caused me a lot of breathing issues and discomfort. I only ever feel an easing of these symptoms for an hour or two before they return. I was all of a sudden able to tune into them with a focus and non-attachment that I've never experienced, and I felt control over some energetic force as I breathed space into it, pushing it out. It was an intense burning sensation and I was aware of how much emotional toxicity was being held inside of this. I went to bed that night focusing on softening and pushing until I fell asleep. I was hardly surprised to find that in the morning I was quite sick. Like my entire system was working to purge some really yucky stuff. I'm still working with these energies even now, but something is opening up. I cannot remember ever feeling this at ease in my own body. It's almost as though it's never belonged to me before this. I know with healing work it's often two steps forward and one step back, but whatever deep change that is being worked out inside me right now is an absolute gift. I can't wait for this to continue to unfold in all of the beautiful ways that it's meant to. Thank you Alan.

      Start of the year reboot as a gift to myself.

    The past several months have presented me with a calling to do some work in my root chakra and go back to parts of my childhood to further release and lighten what my soul has been carrying. I found Alan's flyer when i was spending time in Mt. Shasta ( which just so happens to be the root chakra of the planet ) on the drive up from San Francisco to Oregon for the Solar Eclipse. I contacted Alan and set up a weekend retreat for the start of this year (Jan 2018). Before going on the retreat Alan was very responsive to all of my emails and answered any questions i had about the retreat. Alan is a gentle soul and facilitates a beautiful healing environment at the Sacred Valley Healing Center. The space is absolutely beautiful and well appointed. When the weather is right you will be able to see the majestic Mt. Shasta . The food at the retreat is delicious, you will certainly eat and rest well. Now, where the real magic happens is in all of the healing modalities which Alan employs. Be prepared to be involved in your own healing, but rest assured that you will feel the burden of the weight you've been carrying around lightened after each session. I am very thankful that the universe put Alan in my trajectory and i will be back to The Sacred Valley Healing center for another retreat as soon as i can ! Not only do i love being in Mt. Shasta and exploring the area but now i also can reach out to a trained Shaman that i can trust to help me continue the deep work that my spiritual path is calling for. You will be in the hands of a natural healer, a class act!
