Shamanic Wisdom Journeys In Sedona Arizona
SpiritQuest is the leading provider of Shamanic Wisdom Journeys in Sedona. Now more than ever it is time to reclaim your personal power and prepare for the Earth changes that are coming. Open your heart to the beautiful web of life! You are a child of the stars, infused with the sacred energy of the Creator... and you have the right to be here. Based on ancient wisdom thousands of years old, this Shamanic Journey is focused on working with the four elements to create balance and harmony with nature, allowing you to tap into the intuitive wisdom that we all possess.
Shamanism is about re-connecting with the land and with Spirit. Shamanic practitioners worldwide have always known that reality consists of vibration, and that physical reality can be altered through our intention. Dismissed during the so called "Age of Reason," these ideas are now recognized as being completely in tune with the principles of modern science and quantum physics. Traveling to sacred sites where power is amplified is also an important part of the Shamanic tradition. The Sedona area is one such place, and has been used for ceremony since prehistoric times. Today visitors from all over the world come here seeking spiritual transformation and awakening, making this the ultimate destination for your Shamanic journey retreat.
Intensive 5-6 Day Shamanic Journey In Sedona
The SpiritQuest Shamanic Journey is a private one-on-one experience: it is not offered for couples or groups. Each journey lasts 6-7 days, during which only the sessions in the core program described below occur. Shamanic journey retreats are facilitated by a small group of shamanic practitioners with very special skills. Participants are expected to journal every evening for at least one hour.
Arrive in Sedona - Check into your accommodations and enjoy some free time.
Welcome & Cord Cutting Ceremony - You will be met by your personal Spirit Guide in the morning to receive your welcome packet. If you have already added sessions beyond the core program, you will receive your finalized itinerary at this time. The Shamanic ceremony that follows requires that you open your heart and forgive. When you forgive, you become free. You are corded to every person who's ever been significant in your life. Often those cords become painful and create negative energy. In the ancient way you can gently sever those cords, sending the person's energy back to them and taking yours back into yourself. Then, if appropriate (if you choose to continue a relationship with that person), the cords will reform on a fresh and (with your proper intention) more positive basis. Your relationship with another person must be empowering to both of you for it to be healthy. Breaking free of your bondage to the past is the first step of your Shamanic Journey.
Soul Recovery - Now that you are relaxed and open, it's time to re-integrate that part of you that you lost a long time ago. One of the cored principles of Shamanism is that part or all of the soul can leave the body and cross the veil for the purpose of contacting Spirit Guides, or for the purpose of astral travel. "Soul Pieces" are parts of the Spirit that were once whole but became fragmented due to trauma or emotional upheaval. The fragmented part holds the memory of the event and the full emotional impact so that your psyche can continue to function intact. In this instance it leaves the body in order to protect the whole. The price for this protection however often manifests as being "shut down" or "numb" in some area of your life. In a Soul Recovery session the lost part is retrieved and returned to you so that you can become whole again.
Transformational Breathwork™ - This is a safe and effective way to trigger experiences of non-ordinary consciousness that open you to psychic depths and spiritual understanding. Lost memories from your personal history, experiences from your birth, and archetypal and cosmic phenomena can become available to you through awareness, helping you transcend the constraints of your ordinary thoughts and habits.
Medicine Wheel Teachings - Medicine Wheels have been a part of many ancient Shamanic cultures dating back thousands of years. They are built in sacred locations that contain the collective energy investment of the peoples who have used them in ceremony. The wisdom of this Native American ceremony guides us to explore the meaning of relationship - not only to each other, but to all living things and to the Divine. The Wheel symbolizes the "Sacred Circle of Life" and reminds us that everything is interconnected.
Deep Meditation: Meet Your Guides - In the context of a Shamanic Journey, this session is an exploration of stillness and the importance of both stillness and creative visualization when it comes to accessing higher states of consciousness. Inviting Spirit to move through your stillness is key to the Shamanic Realm, which includes the power to make manifest, the power of intuition, and the power to heal. During this session you will be guided through a tranquil journey, allowing you to move to a deep place of stillness and rhythm within yourself. You will come out glowing.
After this session you will have time to process and journal for the rest of the afternoon.
After the morning meal you will begin a 24 hr fast.
Insights Into Self: Breaking Old Beliefs - In this session you will learn how belief systems are the "instructions" you have in your subconscious mind which determine all aspects of your life, similar to the way computer software determines what a computer will do. Many of these beliefs were formed early in childhood and some have not been updated to a healthy adult viewpoint, which causes us to place limitations on ourselves which have no basis in reality. By looking at the patterns in your life and the tracks you have left behind, you learn to recognize your unconscious belief systems and how they actually affect your life. Once the belief is found, it is released and it loses its power over you and your life!
Way Of The Peaceful Warrior - It's time to explore the laws of proper relationship, which necessarily involve reciprocity and mutual respect in order to be healthy. These laws apply to everyone, whether we are conscious of them or not. You will learn how Native American people create harmony and balance in their lives by cultivating gentleness and gratitude in combination with a willingness to sacrifice oneself for the greater good.
Shamanic Wisdom Journey - This session takes place on the land. You have begun the process of evolving to a higher state of consciousness, and it is a very strong beginning... but it is also a process which has no end. Shamanism is about being connected with nature, understanding that we are spiritual beings born of the Earth, and then using this wisdom to create balance, health and success in all of our relationships. Shamanism is the oldest way in which human race has sought connection with Creation. This session deals with using Dreamtime to manifest and heal.
Canyon Journey - After breaking your fast, you'll be going with your spiritual guide to one of Sedona's beautiful canyons. Touch the healing waters Oak Creek or listen to the voice of the wind on a lonely mountain top, allowing Mother Earth to provide for a huge release. Be lead by your animal guide to find clarity and peace of mind. Learn to let go and to be in the present moment. This will be a day unlike any other you have ever experienced.
Spiritual Awakening - This is your integration and closing session. Spiritual Awakening deals with deepening your connection with God/Source/Spirit and working with you at your Soul level, asking the questions and exploring why did you come here? What are your lessons, challenges? What is your purpose? How to get in touch with you at your center, the Source of who you are, bridging the outer with the inner.
You can either depart Sedona or extend your journey by adding other sessions.
