Description

Struggling to find your true purpose? Unlock and rediscover your soul’s truth with shamanic healer and spiritual teacher Dr. Rachel Mann, founder of the Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth School of Mother Earth Mysticism. In this empowering retreat, you’ll connect with Mother Earth, your natural abundance, authentic power, soul force, and spiritual sovereignty.

 

Immersed in the pristine natural beauty of the center’s dramatic setting, your expert guide will lead you on a shamanic journey to enhance authenticity in your life. Through dharma talks, transformational shamanic meditations, journeying, and fire ceremony, you will release old beliefs, wounds, and stories of scarcity, lack, and fear and reconnect with your inner truth and your true purpose.

In this engaging retreat, you will:

  • Experience the wonder and power of a fire ceremony
  • Celebrate the joy of movement and sound through sacred song and dance
  • Cultivate connection with others with talking stick group sharing
  • Explore inner and outer sacred earth elements outdoors
  • Create a shamanic prayer bundle to bring your dreams to life

You’ll leave with a sense of fulfillment, enlightenment, and confidence with tools to keep you moving powerfully forward in your true purpose.
