COMMUNITY - COLLABORATION - COMMITMENT

Sign Up for our newsletter to get more info.

This first annual retreat was our response to the absence of community and connection that we all experienced over the last year and a half. We felt it was time to harvest the insights we gathered from this period of solitude and restore and reconnect to our meaningful relationships with our sadhana (our spiritual practice) and each other. As an Institute, we had been questioning, practicing, and creating new modalities of leadership, and learning how to articulate and put into action the foresight for the changes we wish to see for the world. Our circle was filled with strong, playful women ready to consider their contribution as individuals and collaborators in this new vision. We immersed ourselves in yoga, rest, time in nature, art and play-based activities, and soul-evolving conversations.

Reflections from Our Weekend

The forecast called for a cosmic river of rain. Cloaked in copious amounts of garbage bags and Gortex, we crossed the Salish Sea to Camp Fircom on our trusty vessel the Apodaca. Our group walked the adolescent playgrounds of Christine and Nikki and Mieke and sat in circle with a collective of mesa carriers. The medicine work activated quickly, mesas and hearts were cleared. We held ceremony at the edge of the tumultuous waters, calling for the removal of our distortions. We ended commitments and made new vows. And on our final night together, created flags that represented our relationship to power and danced to the songs that filled us with vitality. We cannot wait to go back to camp!!!

Camp Fircom Community Retreat
Black Stone: Soul Retrieval

Join Christine Selda, Ph.DAnita Weimann, Nikki Hainstock, and Rochelle Quarry on our second annual, Gambier Island Community Retreat. 

A spirit spot of Christine’s childhood, this land holds the imprint of inner-child work, of play. During this weekend, participants are invited to begin activating a Black Stone Mesa. Your medicine bundle will become a toolbox filled with plumbing stones for shamanic soul retrieval for our human and more-than-human family. This work of reconciliation is the cornerstone of all animistic, shamanic practice. Track motivation, participate in Shamanic Yoga classes, satiate your creative urges through expressive arts processes. Come and breathe new life into your spiritual inspirations, nurture yourself and strengthen your capacity to be a catalyst who can hold a sustained vision of wholeness – the Healer’s Cosmology.

Aligned with out last retreat, we are holding the vision in action for collaboration, community, and connection. Self-selected or Spirit-selected, YOU are absolutely invited!

Investment: $875 plus G.S.T.
