“A Retreat is permission to 'vacate' your ordinary consciousness and slip into the mystical part of your nature so that you can ask soul-sized questions that reveal not answers to you, but truth.” ~Caroline Myss
Amiee specializes in VIP retreat experiences held in a spacious, nourishing energy that allows participants to find and be at their growth edges by reclaiming inner sovereignty more fully than ever. With time to integrate the changes and expansions, women return to their lives centered and in more of their fullness.
Astrological New Years Celebration on April 20-23, 2023, in Houston, MN is SOLD OUT. Join the email list to be among the first to know when the next retreat dates are announced.
As a shaman, it has never felt aligned to create intention and plant goals in January. This is the coldest time of year here in Minnesota. Things are meant to be in hibernation, which is a time of introspection that allows for the seeing and releasing what does not serve the direction of our dreams.
The same holds true from an astrological standpoint. Each astrological year is 13 moon cycles long moving from new moon to new moon starting with the Aries new moon. In 2023, there are two Aries new moons. The first one is on March 21, 2023, marking the Spring Equinox AND the final moon cycle of the previous year.
Making the start of the astrological year or new year April 19, 2023. This is the time to be setting goals and intentions for the coming year. Spring has arrived and with it the time to plan your gardens. That will be a big part of what this April retreat is about, planning and feeling which seeds to plant, what opportunities to pursue and how to nourish them.
Before we gather on April 20 at noon, we will gather twice via zoom. These online gatherings will be the container of the final release of last year. Clear, nourished space is needed to plant. At these two gatherings, on March 9 and 30, we will set clear goals to clear our spaces energetically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.
Events in the past events have included:
Walking the Land
Meditating with the Land
Archetypal accessing through movement and body practices
Fire ceremonies and firewalking
Personal and group astrology readings
Working with story and myth
Energy work and more
Each event is geared toward the energies of the season and the attendees.
The guarantee with each event is:
Working in a small group with plenty of personal attention
Eight delicious, catered meals
Opportunities to listen to Soul
Finding personal growth edges
At the New Year Celebration event in April, 2023, Vanashree Balgamwar, an Ayurvedic practitioner, will create a menu of meals and will guide attendees to a fresh way of relating to food in the coming year.
Houston, MN is a bit over a 2 hour drive from the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. If you are flying in and need a ride to the retreat location, please let me know so I can assist in making arrangements.
Lodging will open at noon for arrivals and we will gather to begin our time together at 2 p.m. on April 20th.
Each registrant will be sharing a room with one other woman. If there is a women you want to room share with add that in the registration notes.
We usually spend time outside both in active ways and just soaking in the natural beauty. Activities are adjusted to meet that capabilities of the attendees.
The firewalk space is within easy walking distance from the house and will be weather dependent.
Vanashree Ayurveda will be creating 8 delicious Ayurvedic meals, teaching about body types and cooking for a fresh approach to the new year. Please note food restrictions in registration notes.
We will close the weekend at 11 a.m. on April 23.
After that time women that are joining us from outside of the Twin Cities metro area have the opportunity for a private integration session with Amiee. Please see the Body Alchemy page for pricing and information.
