Healing Journey Retreat

April 13, 2018 - April 20, 2018

100,00$ – 800,00$

An Inner Journey of  Self Discovery and Transformation

"The Passage" Sandra Bierman

April 13-20

A skillfully and lovingly facilitated journey into the depths of your heart and the heights of your Soul.

The creative process is intrinsically healing, and as we follow the messages of Spirit we are led home.

All the modalities of the arts …painting, poetry, clay, collage, music,  movement, dance & theater, etc., become tools of exploration,  leading us to the deep, authentic center within our own Being.

Dana's wonderwoman

Creative process opens a deep connection with your soul and spirit.

In this unique course, you will be guided in a process that is carefully crafted to fully open your creative channel and access a state of high vibration creative flow.  What emerges is a spectacular miracle in the soul’s long journey – an expansive opening into joy, light and freedom.

At the beginning of the week you are led in various processes ~ Energy Flow Painting, Spirit and Soul Collage, Moving Meditation and other ‘sparkings’ that initiate the Transformative Journey.

As the week progresses, each person is guided to follow their own inner thread- some work with clay, some with painting, others with collage, mask & costume making, etc.  Each person will do exactly what is right for them and the Divine orchestrates the process brilliantly!

This is a Spiritual, Alchemical and Shamanic approach that invokes the presence of the Divine to guide an inner process of healing and awakening.
