Ancient Soul, your journey home begins right now...

Join us for 4 days/3 nights on the wildly beautiful southwest coast of Vancouver Island, Canada!  Where the powerful Pacific Ocean, home to the ancient Lemurians, meets with a rugged and rocky coastline, hugged by a dense and life giving temperate rainforest!

Our intention for this retreat is to expand your knowingness of who you truly are, to amplify the love from your Lemurian starseed heart, and to bring greater waves of light and compassion to Mother Gaia and all her inhabitants through a sacred connection of the five elements!

Lemurian Earth Ceremony with Elitsa (7:30-9:00pm)

Step into the sacred circle of the Lemurian Earth Ceremony, where the ancient whispers of the land intertwine with the heartbeat of humanity and the New Earth rising.

At the heart of the ceremony lies the practice of the Human Mandala‚ÄĒa sacred dance of unity and harmony. Participants join hands and form a living mandala, their bodies interwoven like threads in a tapestry of light. As they move together in a graceful spiral, they honour the interconnectedness of all beings and the sacred geometry that underpins the fabric of existence.

Guided by the rhythm of their breath and the wisdom of their intuition, participants become vessels of divine expression, channeling the elemental energies of the earth. With each step, they infuse the land beneath their feet with love, gratitude, and reverence, awakening the dormant seeds of consciousness that lie within the soil.

As the mandala unfolds, participants offer prayers, blessings, and intentions to the earth, weaving a web of light that transcends time and space. They invoke the wisdom of the ancient Lemurian teachings, calling upon the spirits of the land and the guardians of the elements to guide and bless their ceremony.

In this sacred dance of remembrance, participants remember their inherent connection to the earth and the role they play in the unfolding story of creation. They embody the spirit of co-creation, knowing that each thought, word, and action has the power to shape the world around them.

As the ceremony draws to a close, participants release their human mandala, returning to the circle with hearts open and spirits uplifted. They offer thanks to the earth, the elements, and the unseen forces that have guided and supported them on their journey.

In this moment of communion, they affirm their commitment to walking the path of the Lemurian Earth teachings, honoring the sacredness of all life and the interconnected web of existence.

Lemurian Water Ceremony with Priscilla (12:30-3:30pm)

In the sacred realm of Lemurian spirituality, water emerges as a cornerstone, revered for its profound energetic essence.

Ritual Cleansing stands as a sacred gateway, where individuals immerse themselves in the purifying embrace of natural waters‚ÄĒrivers, streams, or oceans‚ÄĒcleansing not just the body, but also the mind and spirit.

Energetic Activation becomes a potent practice, as Lemurians infuse water with positive intentions, healing vibrations, and divine energy through rituals and meditations, unlocking its spiritual potency.

In their journey of interconnectedness, Lemurians honour the unseen realm of Nature Spirits, communing with water beings for guidance and blessings, recognizing water as a conduit between realms.

Water Blessings culminate as acts of reverence and gratitude, as Lemurian shamans and priestesses imbue water with sacred intent, invoking its blessings for abundance, fertility, and protection.

Rooted in reverence and deep understanding, Lemurian spiritual practices honor the sanctity and transformative power of water, weaving its elemental essence into the tapestry of spiritual evolution and cosmic harmony.

With each step, we release that which no longer serves them and embrace the blessings of the present moment. Tune into¬†the drumming circle as the rhythmic heartbeat of the earth, uniting participants in a shared experience of connection and harmony.

Enter into a state of trance-like meditation, transcending the boundaries of time and space as we offer our prayers, intentions, and sacred offerings to the flames. With each offering, we invoke the elemental forces of fire, calling forth the transformative power of destruction and creation.

We close our ceremony in a circle of unity and gratitude, offering thanks to the spirits of the land, the ancestors, and the elements for their presence and blessings.

All will be touched by the magic of Lemuria‚ÄĒthe lost continent of ancient wisdom and divine love;¬†honouring the parts of our being that are of Mu.

Lemurian Air Ceremony of Breathwork with Jess & Brett

Enter the ethereal realm of the Lemurian Air Ceremony, where the dance of breath becomes a sacred invocation of liberation and transformation.

As participants converge in a space of sacredness, intention, and unity, the gentle whisper of the wind serves as a silent guide, leading them on an inner journey of healing and awakening. Here, amidst the sanctuary of the circle, the breath emerges as the sacred thread connecting body, mind, and spirit‚ÄĒa potent catalyst for profound inner alchemy.

In the luminous embrace of the ceremony, participants are invited to explore the boundless depths of their being through the transformative power of breathwork. The breath, revered as the essence of life itself, becomes the liberator‚ÄĒa gentle yet potent force that awakens dormant energies and dissolves the veils of illusion. With each inhale, they draw in the vital essence of the cosmos, infusing every cell of their being with the radiant light of creation. With each exhale, they release stagnant energies and blockages, allowing them to rise to the surface to be felt, acknowledged, and lovingly released.

Guided by the wisdom of their breath, participants journey inward, traversing the landscapes of their inner realms with courage and curiosity. In the sacred container of the ceremony, they are held in safety and reverence, supported by the collective energy of the circle as they delve deep into the recesses of their psyche. Here, in this space of vulnerability and authenticity, they are invited to surrender to the wisdom of their bodies, trusting in the innate intelligence that guides their breath.

As the ceremony draws to a close, participants emerge from their inner journey with hearts open and spirits uplifted, their beings bathed in the luminous glow of inner peace and wholeness, honouring the sacredness of the breath as a gateway to liberation and transformation.

Brett Beckett @islandgypsywellness

https://www.islandgypsywellness.com/

Hello beautiful souls, I am a registered acupuncturist in British Columbia and an intuitive healing practitioner. My healing practice is inspired by the profound capabilities we all hold within us. As we are designed to repair, heal and evolve through the innate wisdom of nature. The sessions I offer are inspired by the dance of energy movement in and around us at all times. Dis-ease is only present when energy is not in free flow.

Choose from one of the following options for your retreat care experience to open and support your individual energy flow:

  • Fire cupping
  • Acupuncture
  • Craniosacral therapy

I look forward to connecting with you and supporting you on your journey!

About Fire Cupping: 

Fire Cupping is a therapy that uses a flame to heat the inside of a glass cup which is then applied to the skin to create negative pressure on the skin (a lifting action). The suction created by these cups stimulates and increases blood flow to the local muscles, nerves, tissue and fascia, which can help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, accelerate recovery, increase the function of the lymphatic, nervous and circulatory systems and increase overall relaxation and well-being. 

Most commonly used on specific points, either side of the spine. These points can awaken the nerves that branch off into each organ system. This stimulation to the nerves supports the entire body to heal on a deep level. 

About Acupuncture:

Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice used in traditional Chinese medicine, where thin needles are inserted into specific points along an energy channel in order to stimulate the body's own innate healing capacity. Acupuncture shines in pain relief, while treating both the physical and emotional body from disharmonies with-in.

About Craniosacral Therapy:

Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle yet profound practice in which the practitioner uses gentle touch to shift the body into harmony. By following the Cranio rhythm and listening to the body, the practitioner assists as it resets the central nervous system and returns it to its own innate flow. This incredibly gentle type of manual therapy can create dramatic improvements in your life. Its light touch releases restrictions deep in the body to relieve disharmony and pain, physically, emotionally and energetically.
