Spring Shamanic Retreat 2015: Re-Birthing Into Our Love

Spring Shamanic Retreat 2015:  Re-Birthing Into Our Love

with Jeanne Marie Troge, MA

April 10-11-12

Camp Knutson, Crosslake, MN (near Brainerd)

The springtime is the perfect time to prepare for the new life that is waiting to unfold for you.  In our time together at beautiful Camp Knutson, we will explore wholehearted living and look at what blocks us from living wholeheartedly.  What keeps us from loving ourselves? What would it look and feel like to live in our world truly loving ourselves?   We’ll address this theme in a variety of unfoldings, through shamanic dance, journeying, energy shifting, a healing grid, discussion, drumming, chanting, time in nature, sauna,  community healing and ceremony.  In our ceremonial time we will experience a re-birthing and a re-naming, and will seal in these energies in our fire ceremony.

As always men and women are invited to attend.  It is recommended that you know how to journey, or at least know how to go into a meditative state to receive spiritual information.  To register, please fill out the registration form.

Registration deadline is March 13th.  All activities are optional.
