Sedona ceremony, drumming, Nature RetreatsSome Pathways We Work With

Each experience builds on the others as you weave your unique tapestry.
And my prayer for you is to take these tools and direct experiences into your daily life and that your radiance will inspire others.

Shamanic Journey skills to develop your practice including advanced sessions with Extraction and Soul Retrieval.

Nature Mysticism:  Deepening connection heart to heart with the natural life forces including Spirits of Nature experiential journeys

View life from a higher perspective with practices of: deepening Here-Now Presence with Self, Attention, Intention, Intuition, Compassion & Patience with Self as your point of power, Courage & Presence, Mindfulness & Meditation. Dreams as a potent source of guidance and healing.

Ceremony – including Circle of Power Drum Healing Ceremony and Teaching

Perceive new possibilities as your inner truth emerges. Enjoy flashes of insight, creative stimulus and a sense of being more at home with yourself.

**(No “plant medicine”(entheogens) are used or needed.  Vision and experiences of “ecstatic union” with spirit is a natural skill that can be cultivated with  shamanic, nature connection, here-now awareness and ceremonial practice.  This has a longer lasting, more profound support on our life walk than a momentary entheogenic-induced state.)

This integrated program supports personal empowerment and honors your own inherent wisdom. I hold space for participants and reflect back their soul’s gifts in a compassionate, supportive way.


In between sessions, on your own:

  • You will have dream, meditation, and journaling practices.
  • There will be study sheets to support our experiential learning.
  • Each day you will have nature practices and communion time on your own at special sites in the Sedona and Verde Valley area. These instill skills to take back into your life and are powerful experiences during which knowings flow in.  This solo exploring time also helps you release energies, nurture yourself with nature and integrate the input you receive during the retreat.
  • Each day, we share dreams, signs, knowings that come to you. I will give you intuitive feedback.

The daily order of sessions may be modified, but all sessions will be included.
This can be spread over 4 days to allow more time for integration, signs, aware dreaming.

We follow up with ceremony and sound healing to restore your energetic matrix.  This is not a magic bullet. But you can make an energetic break through.  The healing deepens with your follow up practices. (2.5 hours; 2 hours with 1 person)

Solo communion in nature by Teresa Settles

Your own daily practice with inner tools and nature awareness in between our sessions are a core part of the retreat.

To get the most out of it, please clear space for this so you can turn off the cell phone and computer and be fully Present with You.

The landscape temples of Sedona open your heart, energize and reflect light back to you.

But your own intention and willingness to be in compassionate communion with all that you are without judgment gives wings to your journey!
