Entering the Gateways

Retreats, Shamanic Healing & Rituals

Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th

9- 5pm


Unresolved issues show up in our lives in many ways, and a form of addiction and hopelessness keeps us attached to that story. We are Nature, and it is from our disconnection that we begin to stray into toxic patterns. We suffer unnecessarily when we lose connection to ourselves and Spirit:

  • lack of prosperity and/or abundance
  • feeling trapped or stuck in an unhealthy situation
  • complaining and/or negative focus
  • a lack of purpose and/or joy 
  • over-reacting to small problems as if they are major crises
  • obsessively worrying about the future
  • feeling unmotivated or powerless
  • difficulty in concentrating or focusing, mental clarity or sleep issues
  • a reoccurring pattern of challenging relationships
  • a sense of isolation

As we begin to establish an intimate connection with the Spirit world, we move away from our fears and into our joy. Gateways are throughout Nature and within ourselves, it is in understanding how we can access this potent doorway to receive the healings to our soul and the wisdom to create that magical change we have been seeking. This retreat is a joyful exploration of ourselves, our truest Nature amidst Nature. 

Have you attended retreats/workshops in the past that felt inspiring but returned and fell into the same traps and patterns? Teachings primarily sit at a knowledge level and until we step fully into the experience, only then will it become wisdom and a place to live from. It becomes our experience and our truth. 

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!

This will be a combination of theory and understanding as well as time spent in Nature, so please dress accordingly. Bring water and a journal as well as your lunch and/or snacks.  No previous Shamanic training is necessary for this, only an open mind to receive some of the most precious and ancient wisdom that is being brought forward to assist us in creating change. 

This retreat is limited to participants, a small community of like-minded souls to create an intimate container for the transformation. Registration is confirmed with payment in full to sherri@astateofbliss.com. 


Sherri Smith is the owner/practitioner of A State of Bliss and holds deep and powerfully trans-formative medicine in her core. Her trainings are extensive and encapsulate the teachings of several lineages of wisdom which include the body, mind, emotions and spirit. 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.
