Dancing with the Great Mystery - Chakra 7

  • Anam Cara

Class hours: Friday 6:30-8:30 pm; Sat and Sun 9:30am - 5:30pm

Real spiritual connection is the grace of a direct experience of the divine in our healing, ceremony and life. This culminating 7th chakra AnamCara class will engage the mystery of Spirit at its most basic and transcendent.    In this class we will probe the death process as a physical, emotional and spiritual transition, learning how to assist the dying and how to prepare for our own death.  Make no mistake, Spirit walks hand in hand with death and will journey with us. Through hands on healing work and ritual we will expand our experience of the divine to cultivate that most valuable of qualities, faith.

Cost: $155

The Second Sight - Sixth Chakra

  • AnamCara

Class hours: Friday 6:30-8:30 pm; Sat and Sun 9:30am - 5:30pm

Explore the elegance of clairvoyant voice and vision skills, known to our ancestors as  second sight and its surprising value in our everyday lives.  We can learn to attune to and ground into our subtle perceptions, using the information garnered to inform our choices. This greater openness was the childhood experience of many of us before we were taught to disown it.  Soon this blockage became the energetic defenses that our consciousness creates to feel safe. In time these defenses limited our awareness of energy, life and love.    Learn why defenses are essential, yet limiting, and how they can be unlocked. Come away with renewed clarity, awareness of yourself and confidence in your perceptions.

We can use European Celtic tradition as an indigenous backdrop for our skills exercises,  building spiritual connection with our ancestors, Goddess Brigit, Archangel Michael and others of the tradition.

Wild Hearts-Earth Wisdom

  • Across the Bay Tent And Breakfast

Enjoy a weekend retreat in Beautiful Kasistna immersed in the beauty of Nature. Our hosts, Across the Bay Tent and Breakfast, will house and feed us so that we can really relax and be present for experiencing our deep relations with earth, sky and sea.

 In Wild Heart-Earth Wisdom we step away from lives that are so very busy to explore the sacred web of life as our ancestors knew it.   We will open our ownsacred portals of perception to let the sentient, aware intelligence of Nature guide us. You will learn that you have already developed skills to perceive this information.  Then you will sharpen your awareness as the marine life, the eagle, the plants and mother Earth herself call.  Slowly the open heart of Mother Nature will draw us in to craft ceremony, ritual or spiritual practices of honor, respect, gratitude and healing.

How often do we have the chance to remember this sacred connection that nourishes our souls and gives life to our birthright as children of Mother Earth?

Located on Kasitsna Bay, we will access abundant coastal rain forest plant communities like devil's club, blueberry, spruce, goose tongue and seaweed. Your time will include the practical side of wild-crafting identification, medicinal properties, ethical gathering and preparing an herbal oil, plant essence,  soup and teas with these plants. Children are welcome.

Our classroom is the delightful Across the Bay Tent and Breakfast. It is just the right combination of rustic and comfort with great food.  Both cabins and wall tents are available. Meals is provided from Friday night snack to Sunday lunch.

Bring a sleeping bag, towel, journal, drum or rattle, gathering bag, gloves, knife, trail snacks, rain and sun gear. We will be outside a lot. 

Cost $415 inclusive of lodging, food, water taxi and class.

Alaska Wild Edible and Medicinal Plants

  • AnamCara

This weekend workshop is an excellent foundation for hands-on wild crafted herbalism and our spiritual relationship with Nature. 

Friday night will set the stage with establishing the relationship of respect and gratitude with the land and plants that is the foundation to wild-crafting. You will learn the importance of intention setting and ethical gathering practices. We'll also introduce plant communication is a learnable skill that brings the entire landscape alive and will change your relationship with nature forever.

On Saturday and Sunday you will build knowledge of the exceptional nutritional and therapeutic value of wild edibles and medicines at your doorstep.  Students will learn to identify 12 local edible and medicinal plants, understand their therapeutic properties, and create tinctures, oils, and salves as herbal remedies to meet their individual and personal needs.

We will have great fun making wild edibles foods for a Saturday night potluck.   Handouts of plant properties, recipes and nutritional information will be provided.

Our retreat headquarters is a comfortable Diamond Ridge home with tent and camper parking space for those coming from out of town.  Campers are welcome to use our outdoor workshop kitchen for cooking. There are B & Bs and great restaurants within 10 minutes drive.

Please bring a notebook; an assortment of large and small glass jars with lids;  a minimum of a pint each of olive oil and brandy or vinegar if you are alcohol free (more if you think you will be prolific in gathering); rain and sun gear; something for the Sat night pot luck. Please let Nancy know if you have a Coleman stove that you can bring.

People love this workshop, so come prepared to have a really good time!

Chakra 5: Sound of Truth

  • 165 E. Bunnell Ave. Homer, AK 99603 United States

Schedule:

Friday: 6:30PM - 8:30PM

Sunday/Monday: 9:30AM - 5:30PM


The Druids held Truth to be their highest principle and the sustaining power of creation. Again and again in Celtic tradition, the precise naming of a thing or the utterance of the forbidden or hidden Truth produced a magical outcome. Its clarity directs energy with great creative precision. Thus we see that the divine so often expresses through the Truth channels of the voice.
 
What can we understand of this power today? How does Truth relate to our integrity, our relationships and our ability to pursue our life's work?
In this weekend adventure we will explore the power of Truth in our lives. We will investigate the felt body experience of integrity as an expression of personal Truth so that we can better recognize and honor it in our lives. With this skill we will consider the individual aspect of Divine truth that each of us holds and its importance as a contribution to the paradigm shift we are all experiencing. We will find that the ability to stand in our truth facilitates the intimacy that makes relationships worthwhile, while the embodiment of our Truth in our work leads to right livelihood. Each level of understanding will give greater depth and clarity to our knowledge and experience of Truth as we use the tools of creative expression, voice dialog, energy work and channeling to understand the forces that have silenced us and release our own true Voice.
 
All are welcome.
