Invoking Nature’s Magic: Five Element Plant Spirit Healing
April 19–21, 2019
In this challenging and chaotic world we long to trust our own inner light. We often forget that we are not alone. In fact there is a rich and benevolent unseen world of spirits (dralas) that are willing to support and nourish us if we’d only listen and receive their wisdom and guidance. This retreat offers a way to bridge our ordinary “everyday” world with a world of magic and sacredness that is always available to us.
Through studying the 5 Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal, we learn how to identify our elemental gifts and challenges. We will explore what nourishes and protects us, and what causes our imbalances. By connecting with nature, guided meditations, simple shamanic journeys, and creative experiential exercises we can learn to trust the wisdom of our bodies, our intuition and the signs and messages of nature and the phenomenal world.
