Get ready for our Lasting Connections Retreat @ Amy Kaufman's beautiful home in Katonah, NY. Upcoming Spring Retreat 5/12 evening 6pm - 9pm & 5/13 10am - 4pm.

To uplift, unwind, and commune with like minded women in a safe and supportive environment.

Are you a woman that feels a sensitivity with nature, people, places, and situations? Have you always felt an intuitive knowing? As women we need to know these are our GIFTS & our SUPERPOWER.  

Think of this weekend as an energy healing for your mind, body, and soul.  It's a time to be unhampered by the constraints of your daily life. You will begin to look at how we move through time differently. The underlying assumption in our Western Culture seems to be that humans have a developmental trajectory that is linear in nature, moving from lower to higher levels of development.  This assumption is not shared by indigenous worldviews.  We invite you to join us in a new way of looking at yourself and your life span.  Each Lasting Connections weekend retreat we start working with our own Medicine Wheel.  The medicine wheel is a sacred symbol used by ancient and modern indigenous tribes.  The teachings are based on the wisdom of the past, providing stability and continuity, one of the many essential protective factors for positive development. We use the medicine wheel as a self assessment for balance and growth in our lives. Our modern natural world is filled with increasing amount of pressures.  The medicine wheel reminds us that we need to balance all four aspects of our being.  The spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental aspects. 

We have turned to the East this Spring in the medicine wheel. This season represents the childhood stage. It's a time to be connected to your feelings. It's the place of new beginnings, the dawn of the new day, and birth. Many of the  qualities of babies (humans and critters) are echoed in this season.  Innocence, trust, vulnerability, wonder, and curiosity can be found or reclaimed during this season. The biggest growth from infant to child is moving from imitation to imagination. We are connecting back to our imaginations and childlike wonder this weekend. 

*Utilize this season's retreat as stepping stones to expand your imagination and release what no longer serves you.   Join us this weekend for warmth, love, & nourishment for you body & soul.  

Friday night begins with a cacao ceremony to ignite your heart light. The following day we will tap into the Akashic field house of information for each individual soul. The soul is the keeper of all previous experiences.  The retreat will empower each individual in bringing forth their own truth with greater confidence. Seasons change and so do we. Join us each season Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. 

* Anyone can come along. You don't have to be trying to fix an area of your life.  We just want people to have FUN!

The practices can greatly improve your overall well-being.  You will awaken with spiritual knowledge and activate the part of you that has always been there.

About Sacred Cacao: Cacao is the fruit of love; it helps to create a stronger connection with each other, our own heart and the loving energy of Mother Earth. This product is from small groups of family farms in Belize, Ecuador, Guatemala, & Tanzania often living in indigenous communities. Just like organic is an environmental standard, ceremonial is an energetic standard for the quality of cacao. Ceremonial cacao is about respecting cacao as a sacred plant elder.  The cacao is handled from seed to drink with love, respect, and intention.    Each month we are highlighting a new region. 

The Mayan among many other cultures have used sacred Cacao for millennia, to work with the heart's wisdom and to enhance the heart to be open and receptive. Cacao awakens the energy and strength needed to bring alignment between polarities, be more grounded, and opens your heart's wisdom. . 

Please do not drink alcohol or any stimulants at least three hours before and after the Medicine Circle. 

PLEASE NOTE: The cacao is not a medicinal beverage and is not meant to heal or cure physical ailments.
