Spring Equinox New Moon Emerging Vision Retreat and Ceremonies

Sedona, Arizona area
A creative time of connection with the spring natural world, fresh insights to seed your new beginning, and ceremonial activation
with Sandra Cosentino, Crossing Worlds founder, ceremonial leader, nature mystic and shamanic practice mentor
We are part of the living body of the Earth—her vibrational frequency, like ours, is increasing. Direct experience of her energies, grounds and renews us. Her beauty fills our heart with awe and wonder. And for the mystic, nature is a portal to expanded awareness.
Times may be adjusted, but all elements will be included.
Option to do selective parts of the program, but it is a richer unfoldment and activation of discoveries doing all 4 days. Also option to extend program with additional insight sessions.

Powerful insight tools to enhance shamanic seeing: practice with lucid dreaming, meditation, tracking-clearing energies, listening to body wisdom, developing Here-Now Presence as your point of power. Includes chakra clearing and sound healing with gong and Himalayan metals, intuitive experiences.
I have seen people make profound realizations, free up emotional drains, deepen self-acceptance and resolve; and, thus, let of their soul’s radiance to shine. From this centered aware place, you become self-referencing, less looking to outside sources for approval and more trusting of your own wisdom.
