An immersion into the mysterious healing energies found in the Monashee Wilderness. This 5 Day Silent Retreat connects with “The Goddess” and the "Sacred Feminine". It highlights the power of the Moon and how her energy is reflected by the water which can present us with wisdom, strength and purification. Held in a wildcrafters village located within a remote mountain rainforest, participants will dwell in a safe and inspiring old growth rainforest along a mountain stream. Participants will stay in comfortable rustic or glamping, accommodation and will participate in silence as guides perform daily village tasks.

We will explore the forest at night and participate in her mysterious healing energies as plants push out an abundance of living air with the rising of the Sun. Breathe deeply as the mist mixes with the forest and thickens life force.

With the help of guided meditations this experience is immersed in nature and is about “flow” and how nature creates environmental attributes through observations, feelings and sounds that can help to guide our lives including our rest and sleep. We’ll discover the Fountain of Youth in an ancient forest as we accompany a wildcrafter harvesting botanicals in a rainforest.

This retreat also includes exercises in the Yasei Shinrin Yoku Six Pillars of Wild Intention as well as a collection of Pineal Gland strengthening exercises. You can also expand this into a 10 day retreat if you choose.
