WILL BE RESCHEDULED for THE FALL
April 24 at 7pm – April 26 at 3pm
A weekend for women who are way-showers, leaders, change makers, visionaries, artists, mothers, healers, guides and teachers who need time to be in nature and community to Listen to the Earth, Hear Soul Speak and Realign with the Well Spring of their Deepest Truths.
We gather ceremonially at Beltane, to honor our Union with the land and with the sacred masculine and feminine within.
The answers we seek, the clarity we need, the support we crave, are all there in the Deep Earth. She is our mother, our true home, the holder of our origins, the balm for our pain, the keeper of our stories and songs, and the cauldron of our transformation.
“Come home,” she says. “Lay your body on my surface and let go. Lament and release. Rest and be fed. Listen to your Mama, and re-member your whole self, your sacred self, your gorgeous and sensual self. Just be here merged in union with me.”
In ceremonial space, on sacred land, you will cross into the terrain of Mystery, into the realms of Nature and Soul. You will be supported to share from your core and be encouraged to cut through layers of confusion, fear, and self-doubt, to cross the threshold into the wilderness inside and the wilderness outside.
In a welcoming and safe circle, you will be witnessed, held and assisted in insights and shifts and in bringing your new understandings and soul-infused songs to the world. We will celebrate our earth goddess selves.
Included in the weekend:
–Opening Ceremony in Temple Space
–Tracking threads of your soul story and mythos
–Wild Mind Wholing and Self-Healing
–Beltane Fire Ceremony
–Time alone in nature to listen to and be mirrored by Earth
–Drumming, Singing, Dancing
–Shared, communal meals
Food and Lodging
Accommodations are in tent cabins (shared) or in your own tent for privacy and sleeping right on the land.
To keep costs low, we ask that you bring two potluck dishes; come having already eaten on Friday evening.
Since there won’t be enough space or time for chopping and cooking, these should be easily-assembled or already-cooked dishes that can be easily heated in the oven or on the stove; you can also bring a crockpot. We will coordinate food by using an online potluck planning site to enter what you’re bringing so we don’t have overlap. Bring your own breakfast stuff for Saturday and Sunday. We will provide coffee, tea, milk and other beverages for all meals.
Other things to bring:
Bring a non-scented candle, drums and rattles, sacred items that help you connect to the earth and your own soul, and a journal and pen.
Also, bring warm and comfortable clothing and shoes for walking in the woods.
Cost for the weekend is $200. A deposit of $100 is required to hold your space. We are limited to 16 participants, so register early to save your spot.
Tracey Forest “Key Turner”
Tracey is passionate about helping others step through the doorway into the mystical and the mythical, the sacred and the sublime, the earthy and the erotic, the dark depths and high heights. She is a fearless and compassionate facilitator who has “been to the mountain” and descended into the abyss to lament for the earth, to celebrate the beauty and pain and who knows the rich gifts that lie in the dark to be mined. She stands in the portal, holding a lantern, singing ancient songs, dangling a key, inviting you to step through into the vast landscape of your Soul.
Co-founding Director of Spirit Hollow, Tracey is a shamanic healer and teacher, yoga teacher and singer of soul-stirring songs. With 25 years of experience guiding others, she is currently in the SoulCraft Apprenticeship and Initiation Program with the Animas Valley Institute learning skills to be a soul initiation guide and cultivating more tools to assist in the Wholing and Healing of this beautiful, broken world.
Tracey is a graduate of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies Three-Year Program in Advanced Shamanism (under the tutelage of Michael Harner) and a Certified Yoga Teacher at the 200-hour level, having trained with Shiva Rea.
