Dance from the Heart

Retreats, Shamanic Healing & Rituals

Friday, July 6th - Sunday, July 8th 


When was the last time you truly felt free? Free of demands, obligations, responsibilities and social expectations, free of chores and rules, and having the freedom and security of being authentically you?

You are invited to join us in this intimate yet expansive celebration of self! Imagine the ease of moving, thinking and creating without the distractions that keep us locked in our patterns of commitments. We are so deeply over obligated to schedules that we have forgotten how to feel alive and free, and experiencing a level of joy that seems so distant from our existence. It is an entrapment that we seldom give ourselves permission to step away from. But it is time to exhale.....

This retreat is a joyful exploration of ourselves, our truest Nature amidst Nature. We gather at a beautiful location in the country with charming accommodations for private or semi-private rooms, 40 acres of forested land to explore and the calming rhythms of nature to hold us. The design is to let you taste a huge piece of yourself that may feel buried or lost, to experience a joyful and expressive manifestation of the true you and anchoring those vibrations to bring forward into your life.

Reclaim your liberation, your happiness and explore your feminine! 

This retreat promises to expand you, to wow you and to bring you back to a place of joy and peace within yourself. Step into your power and be your beautiful self in this incredible immersion...the time is now. Give yourself this opportunity to live full out!

She has experience with universal medicines from many continents and masters, allowing her to blend the traditions to create the greatest results for individuals and groups.  It is her desire and purpose to reconnect ourselves back to that which we have forgotten and in doing so, empower us to move forward with clarity, support, peace and purpose. 

Give yourself permission to 'let go' and celebrate your authentic self! Often what we most fear is the very thing that sets us free.
