Transmuting Personal and Environmental Toxins
Based on the groundbreaking work of Sandra Ingerman.From cross-cultural legends of shamanic cures to biblical accounts of seas parting and water transforming to wine, many spiritual traditions are rich with stories about unexplainable miracles. Using a powerful combination of guided meditation, shamanic journey work and ceremony, our work will focus on transforming not only physical toxins, but also emotional and mental toxins that poisonperceptions of reality.This work brings together people who believe it is possible to create heaven on earth. It puts us in touch with our own ability to be miracle workers. It teaches us about our own enormous power, which we are using every minute of the day without being conscious of it. With every thought, word and deed, we are creating ourselves, our lives, our reality, for better or worse. Medicine for the Earth shows us how to use our power to create health, wholeness and harmony in our world and within ourselves.

While Reiki practitioners and those who do other types of energy healing may be particularly attracted to this way of working, anyone can do it and no previous experience is necessary.
Journeys at the sacred Tree
From the Tree of Life to the World Tree, the Tree of Wisdom and the Cosmic Tree, people have celebrated the archetypal tree as a source of connection with their ancestors and a way of accessing spiritual realms. Tree spirits can be powerful healers and teachers, leading us to a deeper connection with spirit and a more meaningful awareness of life.
In this experiential workshop, you will interact with tree spirits to gain information, insight, balance and harmony in your life. We will spend part of our time outdoors among the trees along the banks of the Musconetcong River, on ancestral land of the Leni Lenape people. Using shamanic techniques, such as journeying, ritual and ceremony, we will each deepen our understanding and personal relationship with our own Sacred Tree.
Previous shamanic journey experience is helpful but not required.
