- Do you feel the groundswell of women rising?

I highly recommend this immersion experience into deepening your understanding of soul and spirit within and without. It will inform your life in ways both subtle and obvious and add to the ever-widening pool of consciousness that has the power to bring healing on both a personal and a universal level. – Cynthia Hansen, 2018 participant
This immersion is held in a deeply resonant, loved, protected cove in the forests of Southwestern Vermont where vision quests, shamanic trainings, warrior and goddess camps have been held for decades. The trees, the stones, and earth know our pain, witness our breakthroughs and reflect for us what we need to hear.

Tracey & Jonah have a very special gift to provide safe nurturing and vulnerable spaces for women to connect more deeply to their authentic beings. They are devoted to their own growth which radiates from their aura’s. If I wasn’t traveling to Thailand I would do another journey with these amazing women. – Nina L, 2018 participant

Tracey Forest “Key Turner”
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.
A shamanic healer and teacher, yoga teacher and singer with 25 years experience guiding others, Tracey is currently in the Wild Mind Training Program with the Animas Valley Institute (animas.org) cultivating more tools to assist in the Wholing and Healing of this broken, beautiful world.
has been devoted to her spirit path for 25 years and is in love with the journey of life with all its rich magical forests, hard hauls through the desert, lofty views of inspiration and thorny thickets of challenging times. She is passionate about cultivating soul strength and relationship with intuition and the spirit realm. As well as being part of a greater tribe of strong women, she has led women’s circles for a number of years and sees the power and necessity of women coming together in ceremony and soul work to provide safe places to cultivate heartspace to allow our authenticity to emerge. She sees that it is women and the youth who are and will be the leading edge of cultural change. And so she is devoted to honoring soul voice, removing old stories and obstacles, connecting deeply with spiritual allies and each other to co-create a vision of true inter-relation with all beings and bring this vision through into ordinary reality. Jonah is also an herbalist and cultivator of medicinal plants, learn more about her at, https://www.unitymountainherbs.com/about
Be infinitesimal under that sky, a creature
even the sailing hawk misses, a wraith
among the rocks where the mist parts slowly.
Recall the way mere mortals are overwhelmed
by circumstance, how great reputations
dissolve with infirmity and how you,
in particular, stand a hairsbreadth from losing
everyone you hold dear.
Then, look back down the path to the north,
the way you came, as if seeing
your entire past and then south
over the hazy blue coast as if present
to a broad future.
Recall the way you are all possibilities
you can see and how you live best
as an appreciator of horizons
whether you reach them or not.
Admit that once you have got up
from your chair and opened the door,
once you have walked out into the clean air
toward that edge and taken the path up high
beyond the ordinary you have become
the privileged and the pilgrim,
the one who will tell the story
and the one, coming back
from the mountain, who helped to make it.
