This retreat is being revised and a new program:
ReSet – Fresh Look – Instigate Change 3-day Retreat will be announced soon
Conscious ReCreation: Instigating the Next Becoming 3-day Retreat
Insight Journeys – conscious evolution practices – ceremony to activate change.
Nature connection, signs, synchronicities, spontaneous creative expression to tap into your innate knowing.
How do we get outside the box of our daily routine and glimpse a farther horizon?
Do you feel a calling to go beyond your current expression?
Is something nudging you to sense new possibilities of how to use our energies or spend your time?
Perhaps you are in a time of inspiration, challenge, change, sorrow, or emptiness and are ready to initiate into a new beginning more in alignment with you Higher Self.
Imagining is seed power: our body believes in images–they spark a physical response. As we dream and imagine we may catch glimpses of the bigger picture and your own Higher Self who is really the watcher-guiding force of your life.
Guided insight journeys and other spontaneous experiences tap into your subconscious longing and connect with wise helper spirits. Mythic experiences such as seeding a new dream, moving through challenges, creating your healing temple, seeing and mapping your energies centers–generate support. Lucid dream awareness also brings forth clues to potential expressions, new pathways.
Images and feelings emerge that have power for you.
We activate these seeds of knowing with sketching images, writing, ceremony, movement, sound and more.
Nature is a gateway of powerful sensory and vibratory experiences and joy. We go out at dawn and sunset and under the stars and tune in, commune, do divining and visioning experiences. We pay attention to signs, symbols, synchronicities. We bond with the Earth and trees for renewal. And strengthen our confidence, instinctive knowing powers, release stress.
Ceremony is a powerful tool for creative expression and activating new energies. As you walk your ceremonial pathways, you are walking your new journey and making it real to the thinking mind that “thinks” it is in charge of our life. You will learn wisdom principles of ceremony, create ceremony and participate in a sound healing ceremony, water ceremony, walk labyrinths and ancestor wheel with intention and more.
In between sessions, you will have creative assignments and nature time to deepen, integrate and generate inspirations.
Each retreat personalized to the participants and the season.

Retreat Leader Sandra Cosentino:
Sandra works with shamanic journey, ceremony, nature connection, aware dreaming and other insight tools with a dedication to empowering others to be their own Seer. Decades of direct experience inform her mentoring/teaching work: exploring and connection to the energies of wild nature, leading and attending ceremony, lucid dreaming, vision quest, mindfulness practices, meditation and insight retreat facilitation.
“Creator gifted me with the ability to hold space for people, to see and reflect back their soul’s gifts in an honoring, supportive way. I resonate with the energies of this land and the her spiritual overseers. I create a powerful, yet safe and sacred space for you to connect with these energies, with your own Light. But your own willingness to be in loving communion with all that you are without judgment gives wings to your journey!”
Each of us has the innate ability to obtain guidance direct from Source for our own healing and vision. Sometimes we just need someone to reflect back our light, to give us new tools, to nudge us, give us a new insight when we are up against a stuck place, to encourage and support us to go through the doorway to another becoming that is there waiting for you to enter.
