Shamanic Full Moon Retreat with Rebekah Shaman
19th-21st February 2016
Warwickshire SOLD OUT!
Join us for this weekend of transformation on the Virgo Full Moon, as we shake ourselves out of the winter hibernation and awaken to Spring.
What are you wanting to manifest this year?
What projects and creative endeavours will you be nurturing?
What goals are you needing to set?
What exciting adventures will you be embarking on?
What changes do you want to make so 2016 is more aligned with who you are?
This Virgo full moon prepares us for the coming Spring season, and our shamanic full moon retreat will help us to prepare the fertile ground so our dreams and visions can ripen and grow.
Using Shamanic Journeying and Ceremonial Cacao (raw chocolate) this retreat will shake out the winter cobwebs, awaken the spring energy, set out our goals and intentions, and bring us the clarity and focus to manifest our desires in 2016.
The Sacred Cacao Ceremony is a powerful healing journey that takes you deep within so you can hear your own inner guidance and wisdom that is so often drowned out by the noise of the mind. It will help to dissolve the barriers that are stopping us from shining bright and stepping into our power.
This powerful process with Cacao journeying will inspire us and awaken our creativity for our evening Vision Board session.
When we make a visual representation of our dreams and visions we are sending out a clear message of what we want enabling the universe to provide to us more effortlessly and easily. This is a fun, creative and joyful process where we see our dreams coming to life on the board and then manifesting effortlessly in our lives.
Some of the weekend's activities include:
Sacred Cacao Ceremony
Spring Awakening Ritual
Saturday Morning Kundalini Yoga
Walk the Labyrinth
The wonderful Taran Cameron will be facilitating a morning Kundalini Yoga session and will bathe us in beautiful Gong Healing throughout the weekend.
Set in a beautiful retreat centre on the edge of the Oxfordshire border in Warwickshire. This retreat will introduce you to some Shamanic practices that you can take into your daily lives to empower you to release old patterns, open the heart and set the path for bringing in the new a fun, loving and blissful way.
Cacao (raw chocolate) is a powerful plant medicine that has been used ceremonially for thousands of years across Central and South America. Raw chocolate is a magical and gentle facilitator of healing, altering our consciousness, taking us into our hearts and inspiring creativity.
Rebekah uses the finest grade cacao from Guatemala and these Sharemonies are powerful vehicles to reach a state of bliss, deep inner peace and awareness. We will each drink 42gms each of cacao together and we will then be taken on a guided visualisation to journey deep within....
