New Mexico Shamanic                                Retreat                 

                       ~May 14-18, 2014 ~

 Synergia Ranch Santa Fe                  

"To enter the Shamanic World we most believe in an unseen reality which exists alongside the physical reality of our tangible existence." Micheal Harner 

 In the New Mexico Desert, a land of enchantment, the veil that separates us from non-ordinary reality is magically dissolved allowing the World of Shamanism to be easily entered.

Upon crossing this veil the Shamanic World comes alive, where the Nature Spirits (rocks, trees, sun, water, wind ect.) and Guardian Spirits (Power Animals, Spirit Guides, and the Ancestors) communicate to us for self-discovery, support, guidance, and knowledge to help heal ourselves, others, and the planet.  THE NEW MEXICO SHAMANIC RETREAT will be a gathering of people from all over the globe who feel the calling to AWAKEN THE ANCIENT SPIRITUAL TRADITIONS OF THEIR ANCESTORS SHAMANISM.

 We will be coming together as one tribe, "The Rainbow Tribe", from many nations to participate in several Shamanic traditions for personal, humanity and Earth  healings such as; Ceremony, Journeying, Soul Retrieval, Creating and Walking the Medicine Wheel, Shamanic Sound Healing, Drumming, Trance Dance, Creating Power Objects, and Sacred Art, (Materials will be provided but you are welcomed to bring your own.). Participants will be encouraged to share their Shamanic teachings and traditions which is so critical for the well-being of our world at this time. 

 We also will be spending time communing with the Ancestral Spirits of the New Mexico Desert that are available to all who walk upon this magical, sacred land. We will be calling upon these Spirits of the land to aid us in creating a Medicine Wheel, then we will walk the Wheel on our quest for healing, guidance and support during this exciting time of potential GLOBAL AWAKENING OF HUMANITY.

 All are welcomed-- you do not need to have knowledge of Shamanism, just an open heart and a calling to be present for the purpose of exploring Shamanism for Personal, Humanity and Mother Earth healing. Also participation in all events is voluntary; you are welcomed to come only to enjoy the energy of the land or participant in creating
 sacred objects and art.

This Shamanic retreat has been my personal vision for 20 years I am excited that the time has come to gather
 Mother Earth's tribe 

What past participants have to said:

"Miss Patricia, You must know how special your event was for everyone who participated! I feel very honored to have taken part in what really did developed into a tribal gathering. Those small group conversations around the tables in the court yards, the sipping of early morning coffee with sun lovers by the fire pit. The painting of each other! Working of crafts together. So many perfect moments, that touched the souls of everyone involved. I hope you are proud of what you and your team were able to accomplish, it was magical..... I hold you as a friend, with deepest regard."  Gary Peters,   New Mexico Retreat June, 2012
