Remembering the Future

There are practices that work to heal the past. 
There are practices that bring you into the present.
And there are practices that help you remember the future.

If you are reading this, I already know that you feel a call to create.  
Maybe you've already started. Maybe you are on the verge of beginning again.
Either way, there is a message your future self wants to give you for this year.

This weekend you will learn how to read the clues that emerge through movement, ritual, community and pilgrimage.

This winter retreat offers you an invitation to embrace the opportunity of your time in 2017.

It begins Friday, January 6th with a pilgrimage amidst the crisp cool air of consciousness to wake us up this winter and bring clarity. We gather at Menla Mountain Retreat Center in Phoenicia, New York, outside of Woodstock in the Catskills, one of the most powerful and mystical lands Rochelle has ever been to.

We will gather together with an opening ceremony to voice our intentions and begin to weave the container for the weekend. Tami Brunk will empower us with a map of the energetics of the year to come from a Shamanic Astrology perspective.

On Saturday morning, January 7th, we will do a powerful morning breathing practice and after breakfast, we'll explore movement of the body as a way to remember our future with Rochelle, Founder of Qoya.  

After lunch, Lainie Love Dalby will guide us through a soulful collage & expressive arts ritual to receive insight through following the creative spark moment to moment and creating an outer representation of our inner vision.  

Before dinner, we will make ritual offerings to the earth. Examples are fire ceremony, planting crystals, offering flowers to the water.

After dinner, we will gather with Madeline Giles, Founder of Angelic Breath Healing, to do a transformation practice of using breath work to connect with our guardian angels and other etheric assistance to guide our way this year.

On Sunday morning, January 8th, we will do a powerful morning breathing practice and after breakfast, we'll explore movement of the body as a way to embody and integrate the visions received during the weekend and to support them with action moving forward with Rochelle.

Lastly, before lunch, we will gather to do a Gratitude Despacho Ceremony to give thanks for all of our visions as if they have already happened called on the magic of Qoya practice Alacazamshazam. 

You will leave this retreat with a clarity of vision of what you are being called to live into this year, individually and collectively.

We will remember the future through 4 different healing practices:

Qoya Movement led by Rochelle Schieck,
Angelic Breath Healing led by Madeline Giles,
Your Soul's Calling Collage led by Lainie Love Dalby,
and Shamanic Astrology led by Tami Brunk.
