Intention Setting & Chakra Opening
9:15 am – Registration
(Meet promptly at the SpiritQuest office.)
10:00-11:00 Releasing Ceremony
You will arrive at the SpiritQuest Retreat Center where your practitioner will begin your wellness group retreat session. This session will focus specifically on a path of self-realization and self-initiation that can lead us to the very core of our being when we let go of that which is holding us back. The participants in this spiritual session will use the medicine wheel to identify old patterns and speak them to the universe.
11:00-12:00 Intention Setting Drumming
SpiritQuest retreat clients will begin to understand that we all possess the power to manifest our intentions. Drumming is a sound tool that assists each person’s inner transformation. The drum serves as a tool for stilling the mind and focusing our attention on a specific intention, while in a state of inner silence. To the sound of the sacred drum we will walk our prayers into the earth and set group intentions on the Medicine Wheel.
2:00-4:00 Name Toning and Chakra Opening
In the afternoon, we open our hearts to receive as our name is toned around us. We will use our voices during your wellness group retreat to assist each other’s opening. Crystals will be used as we tone ancient sounds to open the chakras, with special attention paid to the heart, throat, and third eye. A guided meditation further assists the process. We learn to trust the gift of guidance, with Thunder Mountain as our nearby witness. We surrender in trust as we dive into the depths of who we are.
Healing Tools for Self
Today wellness group retreat participants will work with various tools and techniques. Plant and mineral medicine have long been utilized to help facilitate a process of deep connection and for gaining awareness.
10:00-11:00 Essential Oil Experience
Through guidance you will pick a special oil and after connecting to it, allow it to express through you. The oil will be a tool to help the heart express through words and sounds.
11:00-12:00 Introspective and Decree of Truth
Clients will connect to their authentic truth of self-allowing each to express their deepest wants to the universe. Each of our souls are conscious and self-aware. Remember, your thought is the most powerful manifestation force allowing you to manifest beyond your wildest imagination. Express something you have always wanted as the group surrounds you in loving support.
2:00-4:00 Crystal Skull Connection
Explore your healing gifts through toning and meditation in the crystal skull circle. This powerful communal session allows the awakening of your own consciousness to manifest itself. Crystals serve as inspirational tools to awaken, activate and stimulate our spiritual awareness. Receive sound healing and explore your healing gifts during this segment.
We will commune with Mother Earth by venturing out onto the sacred land of Sedona to a crystal field. We’ll also continue learning the tools necessary to go deep within ourselves learning self-love and releasing of the past.
Today participants of the wellness group retreat will have the amazing, once in a lifetime, experience of connecting on a spiritual level with horses. These horses have taught clients how to release fears and blocks, and how to have the greatest, and most humble joy and gratitude for life. They teach patience, in a profound and gentle way. Horses teach you to trust, both in yourself, and the Universe.
10:00-12:00 Horse Medicine and Final Ceremony
Ground yourself in your new found wisdom, authenticity and guidance through connection with medicine horses. In this final session participants will be with the horses in small groups and support those who wish to ride. We will then close our sacred circle and allow our energies to continue in creating the highest good for all.
In the afternoon participants will have free time to explore Sedona on their own or have some space to schedule optional one-on-one intensive sessions.
This is a beautifully shamanic experience which allows for all levels of comfort in spiritual or energetic matters.
