Barefoot, Unplugged, and Wild Retreat
When: July 20-23 2017
Where: Eminence, Missouri
The energy of this place is wildly electric and at the same time peaceful and calm. Wild horses behave so differently from domestic horses–and to have the opportunity in the midwest to observe them is breathtaking and life-changing. Your skin will prickle with excitement as you stand in the field with them.
Their energy is boundless and palpable.
They’re wild, so there is no touching or getting close to them like domestic horses, but they are accustomed to human presence and allow us a glimpse into their life. They give permission to stand nearby and feel their magnificence.
The farmhouse we’re staying in has a trail on the property that the horses have trodden. Just a short way down the dirt road from the house is the field they frequent where they often sleep and graze at dawn and dusk.
This will be a completely unplugged weekend. You can check in with your family daily, but I ask that your phone is nowhere near you during the retreat. In my personal life, I unplug once a week for twenty-four hours. The lessons and energies that integrate during that time are profound and I want you to experience this level of connection with the earth, the animals, and the energies present.
The food will be delicious, completely gluten free, homemade from scratch by my husband, Phil. Trust me when I say you haven’t had food this fabulous anywhere else.
We’ll have nightly guided meditations around the campfire. Intuitively, I’ll lead a spirit journey with the wild horses after we’ve seen them in person where they will share their medicine with us, bring us messages from the spirit realm, and allow us to share in the feeling of complete freedom.
We will enter into ceremony to create our own medicine drums.
My process is traditional and also unique and allows you to create very specific intentions for your personal medicine drum. We will soak the hides and lacing in a unique way, set intentions and put them into the drums, and we will create and birth these with our own hands while in the energy of the wild horses.
With an energy modality I learned in Sedona from a woman who works with the energy vortexes there, I will lead you in capturing the energy from Eminence and the wild horses to carry with you wherever you may roam. It never leaves you and you need only access it.
We will create the drums while connecting with Mother Earth.
We will have a drum circle and a special time of drumming that is called a drum wash. Each person is placed in the center while the others encircle her. We drum the unique song of each person while inviting in the four directions, Mother Earth, Father Sky, the ancestors, and all our relations. This powerful ceremony brings all of our medicines to the circle. The feeling you receive from this drum wash will never leave you.
Each day, we will be led in Wild Soul Movement by Christine Juckett.
Wild Soul Movement melts away everything that’s ever made you feel wrong, ashamed, less than, or unsafe in your sacred body. It’s not about working out, it’s about working in.
Wild Soul Movement is a grounded and loving practice designed to get you out of your head and into your body. Together we will redefine the rules, expectations, culture and conditioning that have separated you from your body.
This is a path to power, trust and freedom within. It’s the permission and stability you’ve been craving. The journey of being a woman, falling in love with our bodies, and owning our power is not something that can be done alone.
This is a sacred space where any woman can find and be herself. It all starts here, with a strong community of women who are brave enough to stand up and say yes to a new way.
Our first session will be, “Less control, more magic.”
Christine will intuitively choose the daily sessions for the remainder of our time together.
During one of our days, we’ll make dreamcatchers.
Big or small, simple or elaborate, colorful or monotone, it’s up to you. Your dreamcatcher will reflect your desires and your time at this retreat.
Leanna Dalton will lead us in creating a Soul Painting. No experience necessary. This is a freeing and healing artistic endeavor that comes from your inner knowing. It’s letting go. It’s freedom. We will be instructed on the power of the heart energy and how to connect to this energy before we start the painting. Not only will we learn some important information about the human condition, but will learn to express freely and begin to see a part of us on canvas that we never knew was even there. Leanna will gently guide us throughout the class.
There will also be opportunity to drive a short distance to observe the wild elk herds. They are a sight to behold! Their power and energy are also big and grand. If you’ve never seen a herd in the wild, you’re in for a special treat.
The authentic soul connections you will create at this retreat will astound you. The depth to which we will connect is limitless. I am holding space for you, for your freedom, your rest, your relaxation, and your time of transformation here. You will gain a new and powerful deepening of yourself at this retreat. Your confidence will soar with the eagles–which, by the way, we might catch a glimpse of in Eminence.
Your registration includes all homemade, from scratch, gluten free meals–dinner Thursday, three meals a day Friday and Saturday, and brunch on Sunday plus snacks and beverages.
