The Spiritual Warrior Experience: Why?
A spiritual warrior commits to growing the heart and soul of becoming a loving, creative being. The world needs us to shine – to be warriors, not worriers. Are you brave enough to love?
This is your chance to go deep and change the core narratives and move the energy needed to live from the heart. This 4-day camping immersion tends to the clarity of our soul’s radiance, ever expanding/breaking inner boundaries to be more porous, to let more light in … and out.
In stillness and in motion – we can cultivate our connection to the heart’s feeling, knowing, discernment, and resolve; our body’s vibrations, instincts, power, and movement. We become able to truly stand in our choices, able to forgive ourselves and others. Able to come back to LOVE and TRUST with greater capacity than ever experienced before.
This 4 day / 3-night immersion retreat goes beyond SELF HELP, beyond thinking about ourselves. This is a truly UNIQUE facilitated experiential and exploratory experience to travel with the breath to a place of “no time.” A place in which everything can dissolve into one rhythm – the ALL. It is time to welcome uncertainty and to remember that your animal body remains the primary instrument for all our knowing as well as all our doing.
“To be courageous is to stay close to the way we are made.” David Whyte
What you can expect from this experience:
We will take you on a journey to find your edge, to meet whatever is unmet in the depths of your WILD body-mind-heart field. You will get a fully experiential embodied experience of liberation consisting of daily Lu Jong practice, Hot Springs, Waterfalls, Caves, Tantric exercises, Breathwork, and Shamanic ritual that puts participants on a path to connect with your own spiritual warrior.
This immersion is designed for you to go deeper….into the woods…into your soulful essence…
A time to be truly wild, unplug from the seductions of habit and addiction to the brittle thought that we “are in control.”
To connect and allow your unspoken truth to emerge from your inner being and soul.
An opening to yourself, to the power and resource you possess as a sovereign being – within and without – as relates to the five elements.
The warrior experience connects you with the inner wild, sovereign, creative part of YOU that already exists and is WHOLE, awaiting your attention, intention, and conscious presence.
Topics to be explored? All initiated with the body and in motion.
The Wild Heart Warrior Experience will be in a safe and supportive environment. We will start the journey of embracing your spiritual warrior self by connecting, trusting and listening to the wisdom of our OWN bodies. Doing this work out in nature you will experience how the composition of the elements in our environment has a direct influence on our bodies and our minds.
What does it mean to own your desire, your eroticism?
What does it take to transcend ancient patterns of conditioning, to dispassionately embrace your Shadow?
What does it feel like to allow your awakened heart to guide you in the direction of the “right action” that is unique to your own Soul’s expression?
What does it mean to open yourself, to the power and resources as a sovereign being?

Saves on gas and road trips are more FUN with another human.
“To be a spiritual warrior, one must have a broken heart; without a broken heart and the sense of tenderness and vulnerability that is in one’s self and all others, your warriorship is untrustworthy.” —Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche*
