Ladies, join Shanti during this unprecedented time of spiritual awakening. With winter behind us it’s time to celebrate our blossoming life force, to transform our inner darkness to light, and to plant the seeds of a new dream of deeper personal wisdom, understanding, patience, abundance, health, love, and peace. Together we’ll re-awaken our remembrance of the divine Goddess within.
The Light House, our private home and retreat center, is a nourishing and intimate place to treat yourself to a much needed rest and rejuvenation. Healthy food, morning stretches, walking to powerful vortexes, sacred ceremonies, and self-nurturing will be our focus. The Birthing Cave and our vortex sites will hold many of our ceremonies where we’ll birth ourselves anew, free of old storylines, agendas and dogmas. Our days will be filled with many opportunities for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
Exploring the Vortexes
Our time together will include; sharing in circle, walking the land and exploring sacred sites, stretching our bodies and minds through activities such as movement class and guided visualizations. You’ll participate in pipe, fire and springtime celebration ceremonies. Each person will receive a bodywork treatment from Joumana, voted the best massage therapist in Sedona!
The intent of our retreat is to release and dissolve old repressed emotions, played-out dramas, self-sabotaging and limiting habitual life patterns, and to open to planting the seeds of true joy, love, forgiveness, compassion and self-love. To be reborn, and step into the next chapter of our lives, for our personal and planetary awakening. If you’re called to attend our transformational retreat we will be most honored to hold sacred space with you. Intuitively guided and inspired to create this event at this time, Shanti offers healing retreats and sacred ceremonies in preparation for the paradigm shift.
Day 1 Meet the group at the Light House at 4:00 pm for a group get-together, opening ceremony and restful night. If you are flying into Phoenix you can carpool to Sedona with some of the other participants or take the shuttle! Once settled in we’ll have an opening ceremony which may include calling in the spirits of the directions, conch shell blowing and the sharing of intentions. We spend the next four days exploring and moving through the sacred Sedona land. We’ll work with ritual, ceremony, meditation and discussion. There’s no definite schedule for these days because in Sedona we work with the energy present in the moment!
Day 2 Today is the equinox and the day of balance! After a delicious breakfast, we’ll meet for gentle warm-up exercises and stretches. We’ll be going this morning to High Priestess Alarya’s ceremonial tepee where she will be creating a special ceremony for us to celebrate the Equinox on her sacred land. We’ll all participate in this ceremony to honor the time of perfect balance, let go of the darkness of winter and plant our personal seeds for the spring. In the afternoon you can choose to have body work, your astrology reading or just have free time to journal and hike the land. After dinner we will share our intentions with each other and have a pipe ceremony to support and help manifest our intentions.
Day 3 This is the first day of spring! After our breakfast we’ll meet in group for stretches and to awake the body. We’ll stop in town and pick up lunch for our walk to the birthing cave where we will create our Spring Birthing time together. The birthing cave is a very sacred heart shaped cave that contains its own womb. We’ll return to the Light House in the afternoon for free time and rest. In the evening we will create a healing environment together where we use guided imagery and sharing for our healing process.
Day 4 We will have our delicious breakfast at the Light House and then have a special process together. After class and time together, we’ll take time for a walk/hike in Sedona’s sacred land. Later we’ll have time to shop, interact and have dinner in Sedona before returning to our home.
Day 5 We’ll spend this final full day together celebrating! After breakfast we’ll gather for a fire ceremony that will allow each person to be witnessed in their wholeness with the seeds they have planted during our birth time together. In the afternoon you can either have your astrology session, bodywork or private time with Shanti. We’ll gather again after dinner to design a support system for you to employ back home and have a beautiful closing ceremony.
Day 6 We leave Sedona today renewed and with a change of heart. New friends have been made and old friendships made stronger. We look forward to the challenge of bringing this new dream home with us!
Important Information for the
Sedona Goddess Healing Retreat
Our Sedona retreat will be taking place at The Goddess House – a collection of indoor and outdoor spaces created with a complimentary merging of Indonesian, Japanese, Moroccan and East Indian cultures. Its warm, inviting rooms are interspersed with comforting courtyards, peaceful meditation gardens, hanging lounges, tranquil pools and restful waterfalls. The Goddess House offers a full sensory environment enhanced by inspirational natural and handmade architectural essentials: egg-shaped door knobs, pebble stone walls, hammered tin lights from Asia, custom furniture, mosaic tulip fountains, hand carved doors & banisters. The home has 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths.
The Goddess House also incorporates the principles of Feng Shui to create a environment that is energetically aligned promoting harmony, serenity, creativity and vitality. An impressive cleansing crystal is strategically placed in the center of the house to ensure a healthy environment and numerous Feng Shui essentials are found throughout this residential landmark. There are two ponds; one with large goldfish and the other native frogs and a real mud kiva on your short walk down to beautiful oak creek (200 steps).
Regarding flights: Please fly into Phoenix early enough to be able to arrive at the Center by 4:00pm the latest that way we can have our opening ceremony by 5:00pm. If everyone ends up coming in later due to flight schedules we will simply start our ceremony later! Figure that it will take you approximately 2.5 hours to drive from Phoenix to the center. (The van companies are: Sedona Shuttle, Ace Express and Extra Mile.) Going home leave enough time for that drive plus 2 hours lead time at the airport. You can share rides if you get your flight info to us – we can see who is arriving and when and match you up if you like.
Feel free to make your own flights, but please confirm them with us before booking.
If you need or want to fly in the day before the retreat begins we have reserved space at the house for the night of April 27th. The cost would be: $100.00 USD.
The actual schedule of spiritual teachings and what we will be doing day to day is not published. This is because we teach by channeling spirit which comes in the moment. Every day will be a magical experience for all of us, teachers included! Keep your heart and mind open to the experience life brings us. Due the remote areas we are traveling to, weather, bad roads and other unseen obstacles may cause us to make changes in the schedule or to visit different sites. We understand that if this happens we were not meant to be where we were going!
On this spiritual journey our intent is to create sacred space where we can learn and share in group for the purpose of transcending our ego-minds and deepening our spiritual connections. The power of our teachings (please make sure you align with the group leader’s philosophy) and ceremonies comes from our combined energy and if group process does not interest you, then this trip would not be your best choice.
