Ancestral Healing Retreat

Sept 20-23, 2021

Come join us Under the Full Harvest Moon for deep soulful connection and transformation as we commune with our Angels, Ancestors, Loved Ones, and Guides, heal the deep wounding within our DNA, and rewrite the stories we tell.

Standing under the light of the moon in our sacred space around a campfire, your feelings begin to rise as we call in the Ancestors past present and future who are in need of healing and transformation at this time. You begin to feel their presence as memories, visions, and senses dance in and around you. You realize you are here for a reason and every moment in your life led you here.  You allow yourself to witness through the experience, becoming the observer in your life. It's as if your awareness tripled in this moment and all of a sudden you have clarity about your life.  You see how you were made up of many others from the past and how you will someday leave behind your own legacy.

You decide to take note of the thoughts, feelings and emotions that arise and for the first time, you see the bigger picture. YOU are playing a powerful role in this moment. You chose to come here to heal and transform the limiting beliefs, family patterns. and trauma that has been playing out in your life. You see how these factors have been inherited and given to you as a gift. You see now that the gift is in this moment to make a choice. You see your present family healing, no longer bound by the old energy and patterns.

 

Free to move forward in Unconditional love and Acceptance. You see how you came as the great channel for this healing to occur and you are honored and revered for your bravery and courage to step up, be different, and rebel against the familiar patterns that have plagued you for so long.

You see how the transformation of these things releases your ancestors into the light, freeing the dense energies of guilt, shame, and unworthiness that have been haunting the family lines for too long.

 

You begin to feel lighter as you acknowledge and release these burdens one by one. Some of them are painful to let go of as they run deep, but you give it your all and allow yourself to fully embody the pain. You know the only way out is through. You know you are being safely guided and supported by a beautiful soul family facing you here in the moonlight.

You witness the profound healing creating a ripple effect through the universe in all time space and dimensions.  You realise you are not only healing yourself and your bloodlines, but the rest of humanity as well.  You see how important every single human is. You see the web of life and the great ripple effect and influence a single human has on everyone else.

 

You feel the energies clearing out  across the planet as you become a beacon of light and an example to those you encounter as you share your love, wisdom and acceptance with the world.

During this retreat, we will connect to the spirit of our maternal and paternal lines, the Grandmother and Grandfather spirit that is a part of us all. We are always connected to our Ancestors. Their divine essence is a part of our genetic makeup going back hundreds of generations! They say we are living the dream of our ancestors from 7 generations ago!

 

Because of this, we carry around patterns and beliefs from the past that are affecting our daily lives. We inherit the unresolved trauma and patterns from our ancestors that they were not able to release in their lifetime, thus having a myriad of issues arise in our own lives, as an opportunity to release and process the energy for them.  Perhaps they stuffed down their emotions of pain, anger, and grief and didn't have or take the opportunity to process them, resulting in a variety of health issues, anxiety,or depression.

Ever wonder why you have money issues? Or strange pains in your body? Or relationship problems? These things will continue to pass on until someone in the line heals and resolves by finding acceptance and value in them. What are they teaching you? What wisdom have you gained?

We can apply the wisdom gained through the experience to empower ourselves and others by creating new patterns and stories.  When we are stuck in the stories of the past, our judgment is clouded and we miss the signs and messages guiding us into new experiences for our growth and evolution.

Right now our world is at a crossroads. All around us we are seeing old systems and patterns crumble down around us creating chaos and fear. But it is necessary to clean out the old outdated patterns and beliefs so that we can rise up and create new systems formed from unity, acceptance, unconditional love, and empowerment. It is up to us on an individual level to step up and clean out the things in our personal lives, as this will create the ripple effect needed to inspire the people around us to follow suit. Change is messy and we all have messes that need to be cleaned up. Once we clean up, we will be able to create a brand new reality for ourselves. We need to keep our heads up, find our soul tribes and support systems, and do the healing necessary to leave a beautiful legacy for the next 7 generations!

You will create new friendships and gain a soul tribe of people that love you unconditionally. You will gather tools and processes you can use time and time again and share with your family. You will have a clearer understanding of why you are here and how Joy is your natural birthright!

Venue + Location

camp-grounds.jpg

The Sand Island Campground is beside the San Juan River with access to spectacular canyons rich in scenery, geology, archaeology, history and wildlife. The campground is home to the Sand island petroglyphs panel boasting centuries of rock art from 300- 3000 years old.

You will have plenty of space to set up your camp and create your sacred space while you are here!  There is access to a restroom, and water.  You can enjoy a rive dip in the heat of the day, and a beautiful group space around the campfire and our kitchen is available to gather and mingle. An Ancestral Altar is set up in a teepee specifically for you to place a special item or memorabilia, such as a photo, in honor of your Ancestors!

 “Archeologists believe this place along the river held special significance for ancient peoples by the amount (over 100 yards) and the time span of the rock art. Petroglyphs from the Archaic era, known as Glen Canyon Linear, can also be identified. Archeologists tell us these rock art panels were public and intended to be seen by everyone. Perhaps this area along the river was once a gathering place.”

These elements combined create the perfect location for the theme of our retreat: ANCESTRAL HEALING! 

We believe as modern day people we have lost our connection to Nature and have grown accustomed to convenience. Bringing us back to our roots and reconnecting to the beauty and wonder of nature is our passion. Ample time and opportunity will be provided for exploring this beautiful land and allowing you to use your senses as your guide to listen to the messages nature has to offer.

 

The importance of aligning our mind, body, and spirit with the natural cycles and rhythms of nature will be woven throughout your experience.

The time of year during the Autumn Harvest Full Moon has been chosen as the perfect energy for connecting with our Ancestors and the Celebrating the liberation of our burdens.

 

The Full Moon heightens our emotions giving us the opportunity to honor and release them. When combined with a specific intention and purpose, powerful change can occur in our lives. The Fall is the time to harvest and celebrate our success and the fruits of our labors. During the time between Harvest and Hunters Moon, the veil between the physical and spiritual realms thins and becomes easier to connect with the other side. Traditions all around the world choose this time of year to honor the dead.

Another very special event happening in 2021 is the Fall Equinox just two days after the Full Moon. The Equinox marks a time of equal daylight and nightlight, and is a time to honor the light and dark and all this symbolizes for us.

Cuisine

All meals and snacks are provided during your stay. Meals are made with Love and support the vibration of the retreat, as we believe intention is everything around here. The menu is selected from a variety of seasonal, organic items, perfect for the vegan and meat eater alike!
