ON PERSEPHONE’S ISLAND: AN ANCIENT MYSTERIES RETREAT

SHAMANISM & THE ARCHETYPES OF HEALING IN SICILY

AUTUMN 2018: SEPTEMBER 19 - 26

Hi dear heart,

In the Autumn of 2018, I am returning to my soul home of Sicily. In my deepest heart, I want to personally invite you to join me in the ancient & magical island of Persephone. I am envisioning this retreat with you in mind. Because you are already in my heart as being there with me, I want you to know that I am happy to brainstorm with you how COULD it work, and what ELSE is possible if you are CALLED TO JOIN ME but feel stuck or stopped in any way.

In this Workshop Retreat of Native European Shamanism & Depth Psychology you will experience 8 radiant days and 7 mystical nights of sun, sand, sea, majestic temples, training in cross cultural shamanism, the spiritual use of the 5 elements (earth, air, water, fire, & Spirit), the journey of Persephone from darkness to light, psychological healing, the neurobiology of love & lust, and recovery from trauma. LIMITED TO 12 people! Only 7 spots remain!

(OPTION: Arrive early and/or stay several days after ~ marvelous travel & touring available)

For over 20,000 years Sicily has been the heart of 3 seas (the Mediterranean, the Ionian, and the Tyrrhenian) and the crossroads of over 17 cultures. The transformational myth of Demeter & Persephone took place on this island. Much of the Odyssey’s heroic struggle’s took in the island of mystery. Sicily, a land of extremes, offers a rich cultural mixture that can inspire our own healing journey from tragedy to triumph.
