About The Teacher

A deep love for life and compassion for all beings called Robin to Spirit at a young age. This coupled with a seemingly incurable mysterious illness from the ages of 14-24 launched her into a sincere and humble quest for healing, truth, and wisdom. This quest brought her at young and tender ages to the monasteries of Nepal, orphanages of Mongolia, Ashrams of India, the sacred lakes of Siberia, and eventually to the wisdom systems of the Andes and Amazon in Peru. Her life was on the line, and that level of intensity honed a focus, willingness, and courage to journey to the shadowy depths of her being to bring forth the light and grace of true transformation. The remarkable healing, kindness, and skillful support she received through the ceremonial work in Peru has inspired all she has done and become since. These blessings continue to blossom and unfold in truly beautiful ways in her life.

During this time of radical imbalance and dis-ease, Robin also searched for relevant insight from the Buddhist based teaching of Naropa University where she received her B.A. in Eco-psychology. Following this she went on to receive a Master of Arts in Good and Sustainable Communities from Northern Arizona University. She completed the fieldwork for her master’s thesis “Entheogenic Soul Evolutions” on her first trip to Peru in 2007. She is a joyful and exuberant mesa carrier with the Pachakuti Mesa Lineage. The teachings of the Pachakuti Mesa Lineage have given a new depth, richness, and clarity to Robin’s ceremonial practice

For the last 10 years Robin has supported, empowered, and been in loving service to many hundreds of people through her ceremonial work which is rooted in the wisdom and ancestral blessings of the ancient Chavin. Robin also works one on one with individuals through health coaching and facilitating the inquiry work of Byron Katie. She teaches classes on health, healing, plant medicines, and Pilates. She is a visionary artist and utilizes creative expression as a joyful pathway for transformation.

Robin is deeply committed to supporting and empowering the healing of the illusions of separation that veil the reality of oneness. She has found that the illusions of the mind, are the root of dis-ease, unnecessary suffering, and internal/external conflict. From her own continued journey of healing and remembering, she empowers participants to look within for the teacher, deepen in self-trust, and utilize the infinite power of love to heal their lives. Robin is honored to be of service to the awakening of our individual and collective heart and the welcoming of the age of “Re-Union.”

    Robin is a healer which comes from her own personal journey of healing. She shares her knowledge freely and is committed to learning through others as well. Robins focus and intelligence is a big piece of who she is. Her Love radiates towards all, with equanimity. It is a gift to be in her presence. I highly recommend going on retreat with her and her family, you will feel like you have known her forever!

      Pisac Retreat 2016

    Great experience! Darcy and Robin organized and facilitated this retreat beautifully. Our excursions to sacred sites were mind blowing, especially since we had authentic local guides recounting histories from their culture. We were held so well in hummingbird gardens by Darcy and Robin, and Paul and Sue for our huachuma ceremonies. Truly a transformative experience. The mountains speak and the rivers sing and the people dance.

      A Gift

    The Hummingbird's Blessing Pilgrimage was a very special time for me, opening a door to a deeper relationship with my heart and our beautiful earth. My connection with my mesa and the Pachakuti lineage deepened and expanded through the journey, offering me a take-away anchor of support and guidance that will direct and accompany me through all phases of growth. Robin and Darcy are impeccable guides, offering from their depth of personal experience and sincere desire to serve all life. With their unshakable integrity and incredible passion for this work, they bring a joyful and light-hearted approach to transformation. They are committed to ushering in the new consciousness with as much fun and grace as possible.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
