Connection to the Earth through Chinese Medicine,
Eastern Philosophy and Shaman Practices
August 2nd- August 4th, 2012 • In the Sierra Nevada, near Truckee, CA
In our modern time we have lost our connection to the earth and the heavens. This backpacking retreat will focus on the weaving of Chinese Medicine and Eastern Philosophy with Shaman Practices to bring you through a unique process of connecting with the earth, the heavens, your energy body, clearing personal blockages and engaging with your original intent to reclaim your power. Michelle Turley L.Ac will share with you Qi Gong, mediation and daily tools to realign your energy. Jill Stevenson will share her shaman based knowledge and skills through creating ceremony and introducing simple tools to provide you with an opportunity to re-connect and deepen your connection to the spirit of earth, our place of grounding and the heavens, our place of purpose through shamanic practices.
