Full Moon Ceremony – Celebration
March 20 – 22, 2019
Sedona, Arizona area
A creative time of connection with the spring equinox natural world, fresh insights to seed your new beginning, and ceremonial activation and Spring Equinox Full Moon Ceremony
with Sandra Cosentino, Crossing Worlds founder, ceremonial leader, nature mystic and shamanic practice mentor
All sessions are held outdoors at different locations (unless we have to adapt for weather conditions).
Can do whole retreat or select programs.
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.
Other Spring Renewal special programs and retreats are described here.

Discovering and Activating Seeds of Your Next Becoming
10 am – 4 pm
Mystical Nature Shamanic Journey Outdoor Seminar in Nature, Earth Connection, & a series of Ceremonies to Activate Seeds that are emerging at a private site by Oak Creek with access to several ceremonial sites.
In a series of spirit journeys to the drum that are uniquely geared to the participants and season, we connect with spring energies, medicine animals, wise helper spirits, nature energies and more. We interweave visionary experiences with nature awareness practices to enhance seeing. We practice ways of being in nature as a doorway to open to fresh inspiration: vision circle, attentiveness and deep observation, messages mirrored to you from nature, noticing patterns. We pay attention to signs and synchronicities.
We activate the insights that have come to you with ceremony to create positive change. Learn universal ceremonial practices and participate in a drum healing ceremony to clear space for new beginnings. Work with your intention and symbols as you create an earth mandala, walk a labyrinth or medicine wheel.
We close with a Spring Seeding Ceremony that is co-created out of our visionary experiences.
Sandra mentors you and offers intuitive insights. This is integrated insight and ceremonial training in a natural, flowing way in the field.
