Preparation classes begin Aug 23. The quest itself takes place on Sept 23, 24, 25... A Vision Quest is a rite of passage in many cultures. It can be an experience that will let you identify, clarify or confirm the future path for your life. It may be a time of healing or of rediscovering your inner peace. You may resolve an internal conflict or gain insight into external struggles.
The quest is yours, but you will take it with the support, encouragement and guidance from our Vision Quest facilitators.
Willow Stick Healing Arts is offering a Vision Quest for those interested in this type of initiatory experience. We will be completing the Quest at Sandilea, a rustic retreat environment, in Central Michigan. One hour north of Lansing.
You can expect:
Six, mandatory, training sessions that will be held one evening per week. Five are held prior to the quest. One is held upon completion of the quest. These sessions will be held by Zoom. They will last from 1- 2 hours. There will also be a post quest session in the week after your Vision Quest.
The first night you will receive a preparatory meal in anticipation of a 48 hour food fast. (Note: If you have a medical need for food and/or medication, follow your medical provider’s instructions for your own care.)
You will have a sending off ceremony. Then, you will be in your private, sacred circle on the land for 2 nights and 2 days.
A monitor will be available for any safety needs you may have.
When the Vision Quest is over, you will have completed your initiation and will have a return ceremony.
You will then receive a breaking of the fast meal.
We will spend time sharing about the experience, if you find a need to debrief.
If you choose, you may request a follow-up, private consultation with a facilitator.
COST $350 Most forms of payment and installment payments accepted.
Have you completed Reiki Levels 1 & 2?
Are you interested in embracing the next level of Reiki, the Third Degree - Reiki Master Practitioner?
This is an opportunity to receive the 3rd Degree training and attunement even if you have not been certified by Willow Stick Healing Arts for
levels 1 & 2.
Labor Day weekend, we will hold our first Reiki Retreat.
All lineages are welcome. The only requirement is that Levels 1 & 2 have been completed at some point in your life.
Saturday, Day 1, there will be a Reiki Refresh. You will be reacquainted with the teachings of both Levels 1 & 2. Training and attunements to those levels will be given.
Days 2 & 3 will be devoted to learning Level 3, which is the path of the Reiki Master Practitioner.
Throughout these 3 days we will be having Reiki sessions during the times between formal class sessions. So, much healing will occur.
Cost for the entire program, including certification for all 3 levels, is $350. Bonus Offer - if payment is received by 8/23 cost is only $295. (For graduates of the Willow Stick Healing Arts Reiki Program - Level 3, there is a special pricing rate. Contact Teresa for the details.)
Sandilea is a beautiful, 50 acre, rustic, off grid, retreat space that is one hour north of Lansing, Michigan. You have the option of camping on the land, staying in local hotels, or commuting. You will need to provide your own food. Water will be available.
NOTE: If there is enough interest, Teresa is willing to hold a Level 1 & 2 class at some point in August for beginners who have never been exposed to Reiki. But, who would like to participate in this event.
In this 2 day workshop, you will be introduced to the world of shamanism in a new and unique way. Participants will be taught the classic shamanic journey to both the lower and upper worlds. Then, these new journey skills will be employed to explore the unique aspects of each chakra.
Chakras are considered to be points of spiritual power within one's body. We will focus on 8 major chakras in this work. By employing the use of the shamanic journey in chakra exploration, participants will experience a weekend filled with spiritual guidance, self-healing, and empowerment.
Experienced shamanic practitioners are also welcome. The material presented, with the exception of training in the shamanic journey, will be new and interesting.
Registration due by 11/1/2022.
The workshop starts at 10:00 AM on Saturday (Please arrive by 9:30 to get settled in) and will go until 5:00. We will begin the second day on Sunday at 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM
