Immersion In Nature

July 13-22, 2018

Total Immersion In Nature

Consciousness rests at certain frequencies that can be increased.

This summer’s meditation retreat will focus on the magic that happens when we come together with the intention of raising our consciousness through Nature. In addition to sacred dance, outdoor sit spots, and working together on the new property, we will tune into the forces that become available to us as we totally immerse ourselves in nature.

We will use our environment and our connection to it, to create conditions for our harmonious development, our integration, and our self remembrance.

This will be a camping experience and a blessing of our newly purchased land on San Juan Island.

Reflections of Past Retreats

“The retreats have become a measure by which I know myself.  What comes out of the slowing down and listening is without exception, a clearer picture of the trajectory of my life and where my immediate work lies.”

Lauren Kite
Yoga and Meditation Instructor

“When I am at a retreat, I am reminded of a certain state of Being that connects me back to all the retreats I have been to.  Once we all drop into the container held for us at retreat, I notice a different sense of time, sensory presence and connectedness.  The growth we share together is inexplicable and exponential.”

Morgan Brown
Herbalist, Midwife, Mama Extraordinaire

“In these retreats, you get a long term period of meditation, inner exercises, and reminders for attention throughout the day.  Being out of the daily grind and immersed in these practices, most importantly, the movements, helped us to understand true awareness and maintain it afterwards .”

Alysha and Brandon Foshee
Business Managers

“The opportunity for self observation and personal growth that exists at these retreats is unparalleled.  Not only have I had many of my own personal breakthroughs in understanding, I often go back and read my notes,  writing and poems. Some of it is extremely profound.”

Mark Gadjos 
General Contractor, Musician

“The retreat allows me to transform energy in a way I never thought about. It helps me bring mindfulness to my every waking moments and brings joy into the mundane. Breakthroughs, release, unity, presence, pushing through fears and frustrations. Learning, always learning and deepening into me.”

Barb Yeakel
Minister and Artist

“For anyone who wants the opportunity to grapple with that which holds them back, the retreat is the best place.”

Sean Forde
Software Development Manager

The Retreat

We will explore how total immersion in nature affects our natural rhythm and our awareness in addition to our usual meditation and mindfulness practices during the day. There is so much to explore in terms of our connection to all aspects of our surroundings.  As we resonate with the plants, the light, the animals, and each other, we create a new container and a collective frequency.

Here’s a chance to learn more about your own personal frequency.  As the energies refine, you see more and understand more.

One of the most effective ways to increase the power of your dynamic spiritual journey home is working together in a group setting that mimics regular life. We will share in cooking organic food, work projects, eating and socializing.  This sets up conditions to learn how to be present in everyday situations.

The retreat takes place at The Hive, just a bunch of woods in the San Juan Islands that is destined for great things. We are camping this first time around and driving into town each day to do movements at The Grange. Our personal shuttle will pick you up in Friday Harbor from the ferry dock.


  • This is a means of looking within in ways you may have never believed possible.
  • We experience energetic momentum that will affect your ability to hold your attention.
  • Taste profound presence.
  • You may find yourself in an environment that promotes the ability to see how your mind gets in the way of your authentic voice.
  • You will be equipped with practical application and experience that will ripple into every area of your life.
  • With this increased awareness, you will notice what perpetuates negativity within you.
  • Witnessing what makes you suffer is the road to freedom from it.
  • If you can see it and accept it without trying to “fix” it, things will change.
  • Are you open to knowing yourself in this new way?

Then this retreat is for you!
