Sound Healing Circle: Receiving The Fullness of Life @ Hidden Lake Retreat
Aug 19 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Experiment, explore the magic of sound and connection with the divine realms as we tenderize ourselves to receive the fullness of life. We gather in a safe, sacred circle, call in the spirits, then embark on a deep and uplifting time of sound through chanting, toning, playing singing bowls, rattles, hand drums. We notice how our compassionate benevolent help swoops in to orchestrate our yearnings for change, healing, creating. We laugh and enjoy community, as our body-mind-soul system rises in vibration.

No previous experience, all are welcome.

By donation ($20-50)

This course is designed to help people:

-For connecting more deeply with the wisdom codes of the divine realms.

We will learn how to be more vibrant channels of sound, bringing the power & wisdom encoded therein, that comes from the spirit realms.

Learning and healing comes through working in pairs and in the larger group practicing sound healing techniques, journeying for information, doing ceremonies for enhancing our personal vibration and states of consciousness. We address current topics in our personal and professional lives so that learning and healing are relevant and supportive to our everyday livingness.

A Celtic Shaman’s Ritual For World Service @ Hidden Lake Retreat
Nov 1 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Use shamanic techniques to relieve suffering somewhere on the planet.

We journey to a place of suffering in the world with our allies, our rattle, our sword. In the traditional way of ancient shamans, we temporarily take on that suffering, then shamanicly dispose of it with the help of our compassionate spirits.

During this sacred Celtic ritual, we have a chance to experience the visceral feelings of shamanic altruism. In doing this service, we cultivate and add power to our own transformation as well as that of the Earth’s.

This ceremony was brought to a group of us by Celtic shaman Tom Cowan. With his permission, we continue to perform this ceremony every year during Samhain. We honor Tom, being of service to Earth the Celtic Way.

Journeying skills are required, as is your RSVP ahead of time, as there is quite a list of materials to gather for this ceremony.

RSVP Here.

Day of Toning @ Hidden Lake Retreat
Nov 17 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Day of Toning provides a potent launching communal ceremony for bringing transformation to our lives–collectively, globally, personally. We form teams and take turns toning through the day. The intentional loving sounds of toning form healing fuel for moving through a sacred geometric altar designed to help us identify key aspects of our current state, our desired state, and what might be in the way of our moving into our desired state. Joyfully immersed in a day-long chorus of spirit-infused sound, we release, we call in, we walk through the altar empowered to make courageous shifts in our life.

We also provide power and intention for healing of the 4-leggeds,  winged ones, and the standing ones around the world, using healing altars designed to honor these beings.

No previous sound healing experience needed, just an open heart, yearning for change and to be of service.

By donation ($30-65).

Advanced techniques and initiations interweave during this healing and learning experience.
