Retreats & Expeditions

STEPPING OUT OF DAILY LIFE TO CREATE BIG CHANGE

Bring Home New Ways of Seeing and BeingDiamond-2013-IMG_8915

Retreats in the U.S. and South America are week-long theme-based programs for personal transformation. Every retreat features nourishing meals and comfortable lodging on vibrant land. We make time for work, play, solitude and community.

Vision Quests are solo rites of passage in nature, long practiced by tribal peoples. Rising Fire Quests are powerfully oriented by pre-trip preparation and experienced team support during the Quest. Come dive deeply in wild nature through physical purification and deep ceremony! 

Expeditions work intimately with indigenous shamans and the spirits of other lands. For eight years, our expeditions in Peru have included high mountain wilderness camping, hiking trips in the Sacred Valley, and touring the best artisinal markets and local textile weavers.

Sacred Play  Rising Fire retreats are joyful! We have a chance for recreation as well as re-creation. Our retreats are held within beautiful terrain that invites us to work with the Earth, the elements and archetypal forces of nature.

Experience transformation through instruction, shamanic healing practices, guided exercises, personal exploration and self-inquiry. Retreats allow each participant ample time to integrate the insights, wisdom and energy that emerges from deep process. Our international trips provide extraordinary opportunities to work closely with indigenous medicine people in sacred play and ceremony.

Magic Happens  Results from retreats are magical. Connecting to wild nature, stepping away from ordinary business and ingrained patterns, allows us to say YES to living Alive. We awaken a truer foundation of ourselves within the kinship of retreat community, and we bring it home!

EACH RETREAT IS A SWEET JOURNEY TO RADICAL ALIVENESS

RADICAL ALIVENESS IS THE ABILITY TO RETURN TO CENTER AFTER ANY STORM
