Embracing the Dark
Weekend Shamanic Retreat
October 27 - 29, 2023
Darkness is a part of life. It is not something to be afraid of or shy away from. Instead, as you can understand this dimension of yourself and of life as a whole, the more complete, authentic, and soulful life you can live.
Surrounded and supported by the beauty of nature in autumn, this weekend retreat will help you develop a deeper relationship with that dimension of life which is vital, always present, and ultimately beneficial.
This retreat will be the launching pad for the next soulful iteration of your life.
Are you ready?
What To Expect:
Meet your Power Animal and learn to communicate with them

Come into a deeper sense of trust in yourself, your helping spirit team, your life's journey, and life as a whole

The retreat will take place on private honeybee and human being sanctuary on 18 acres of land abutting Massachusetts State Forest. Nestled in the beautiful woodlands of Warwick, MA, you will be immersed in the healing energy of this magical space.
Food and Accommodations
There are a variety of indoor glamping sleeping options, including sleeping in the onsite Tipi. You are also welcome to bring your own tent and camp out under the stars!
Several options for sleeping are available. Images for these are available on the registration page. Some accommodation options come with an additional cost.
1) Bring Your Own Tent - there is ample space for camping out. Room for 4 tents
2) The Tipi - communal space, fitting six people in sleeping bags.
3) The Library Loft - private, cozy space for one person (or two snugglers). By selecting the Library Loft, you will reserve that space entirely for you.
4) The Beehive Cabin - a private cabin that adjoins the on-site honeybee apiary, equipped with both a loft bed and a futon. When selecting this space, indicate whether you are open to sharing that with another participant or whether you would like that to yourself.
Indoor, private restrooms and hot showers are available.
Meals will be a communal effort. We will share Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and Sunday breakfast together. You will be asked to bring and prepare one meal for the group. There is a kitchenette and grill on-site. Once everyone is registered, I will assign you a meal to help prepare and serve for the group.
When you register, please indicate any food allergies or sensitivities.
Friday night dinner is on your own.
On this site there is a working honeybee apiary. Stings have not happened in the past, especially when we approach them with respect, honor, and common sense. They are also extremely unlikely at this time of year. If you have concerns, please let me know.
