CRETE | 25th Annual Shamanic Retreat with Brant Secunda
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 5:00 AM - Friday, April 25, 2014 at 8:00 AM (PDT)
Journey to the birthplace of modern civilization and explore the sacred land that gave rise to the modern world. The calm turquoise water eases the soul and clears the mind. Our Crete Center overlooks the neighboring islands and affords a clear view of Mount Ida, the tallest snow-capped peak on the warm island. Long sandy beaches and exquisite rock formations line the coast, while sloping mountains create a dramatic backdrop for this 9-day retreat. Local Mediterranean cuisine and the relaxed lifestyle generate an atmosphere geared towards clearing the mind and healing the body. Teachers, business professionals, therapists, doctors and students all have something to gain from this special retreat.
Brant Secunda completed a 12-year apprenticeship in Mexico with the late Don José Matsuwa to become a shaman, healer and ceremonial leader in the indigenous Huichol tradition. Living in the Sierra Madre Mountains, the Huichol are considered to be one of the last tribes in North America to have preserved their pre-Columbian traditions. Members of the international medical, spiritual and educational communities, including the World Health Organization, have recognized Brant’s commitment, as well as the knowledge he has been sharing for over three decades.
The Dance of the Deer Foundation Center for Shamanic Studies was founded by Brant Secunda in 1979 with the goal of supporting the Huichol Indians in keeping their shamanic traditions alive, preserving their cultural and economic survival, and to bring the power and joy of this ancient wisdom to our modern world.
