Shamanic Bootcamp Retreat with Rebekah Shaman
24th-26th February 2017
Join us for this intense new moon personal development workout and get ready to flex your wings and fly.
Prepare to dive into spring detoxed from mental, emotional and spiritual BS. With increasing darkness on the planet make sure your light is switched on and set to service.
Set in a beautiful retreat centre on the edge of the Oxfordshire border in Warwickshire this specially formulated weekend will take you through your shadow and back into the heart so you have the tools and inner guidance to help deal with life gracefully and effortlessly.
Kundalini yoga will help to awaken the body, stir the energy and dust out those energetic cobwebs, the cacao ceremony is a gentle yet transformational plant medicine journey which gives us the stillness to listen to messages and give us time to focus on issues we may have been avoiding and set new intentions going forward. The powerful gongs and sound healing assist us on a cellular level to heal and instil change.
True transformation comes from deep inner work which is not without it's sweat and tears but like anything hard you come out energised and refreshed with a new sense of clarity.
This Bootcamp will help sweep out any doubt, darkness and debris that may have accumulated over the winter months so you can emerge into spring shining and ready for anything.
Some of the weekend's activities include:
Sacred Cacao Ceremony
New Moon Ritual
Morning Kundalini Yoga
Walk the Labyrinth
Our Kundalini goddess Taran Cameron will be facilitating morning Kundalini Yoga sessions and you will also be bathed in gong healing by Taran and Sound Awakening over the weekend.
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....
Your facilitator - Rebekah Shaman’s role is to help people tune in to their own inner truth and her practice is firmly based in the real world.
Rebekah was initiated by a Shaman in Peru, and has been practicing and mentoring in both the amazon jungle and the concrete jungle. Rebekah see’s this as a time where everyone needs to listen to their own intuition.
Rebekah has studied and worked with three ‘feminine’ plant medicines over the last 17 years; Ayahuasca (a vine from the Peruvian Amazon), Cannabis and Cacao. Rebekah is an ambassador for women shaman, currently working on 'Her Story,' a film about female shaman of the Amazon. Rebekah has a BA (Hons) in Study of Religions, and MSc in Development Economics, both from SOAS University, and a Post-graduate Psychology Diploma in the Human Givens Approach. She is also the author of the self-published book ‘The Shaman’s Last Apprentice’.
