In over 30 years of teaching personal development, natural health and self- discovery, I have found that it is common for us to get real busy, stifle our feelings, or remain “smoldering in the fires” of life. When is it time to stop or when is it time to ignite and renew? All of my life years, I have learned that within nature, those answers are available.. We are guided Mother Earth when we learn to listen, observe and trust ourselves.

Most of us live our lives in “habitual adapting”. We listen, observe, engage and often unconsciously believe in the voices of others. Our pasts, our environments and the people influencing them shape a large portion of who we have become. So often, we shackle our true selves, silence or doubt our inner voice or minimize our hopes and dreams. Emotional sedation, nature deficit disorder and real life events may capsize our self-worth. Symptoms such as fear, anxiety, unhappiness, shame, worry, loneliness and mental/emotional health challenges are all fiery embers inviting deeper understanding.

With grace and confidence, the time is here to blaze our own trails.

There is a voice guiding us to transform, to grow, to be. We must listen to this voice in order to rekindle the fire within our heart and wake up the voice within. There are always great inner discoveries on the winding roads of discomfort, adversity and pain. We are all recovering from something. Transitions and crossroads in life is our true nature. Vulnerability and courage can ignite your inner fire and slowing down and taking the time to reconnect to ourselves must the new path of self care.

Come share your doubts, your dreams, your mischief, your pain.  Come listen to the stories of others and come share your own, so that we may remember and rise into who we truly are.

Dawn and the land will be here to welcome you home and awaken or renew your true nature.

Our Voice of Fear and It’s True Nature

10am  til the fire sleeps

Stepping into and over the threshold of inner inquiry begins as soon you arrive at the ranch. We will have a beautiful lunch, connect to our new friends, breath deeper, get settled and then our journey into awakening our voice begins.

Culturally we lack connection, ceremony and initiation. In a society ladened with pseudo positivity and a “get over it” attitude, we may have never really connected to the reasons behind our fears or we may have not slowed down long enough to truly and deeply hear her voice. The voice of our fears deserves to be heard. On our first day we will begin to nurture our fears, to connect and to understand her. All of us hold back something, it is part of being human. Growing never stops and if it does our true nature is left shackled in some shape or form.  I will be inviting you with exercises in self discovery, sharing your stories and of course singing! For some of us, singing or self expression brings up fear!


Our Voice of Clarity and Connection

9:00 am til the fire sleeps  

How can you deepen your relationship to yourself and to others? Saturday identifies the journey to where you are and where you want to go. Learn great skills to be able to take the first steps towards deepening your inner awareness, what is holding you back and where you desire to travel with your heart leading the way? You will define and move towards change while enjoying the process! We will laugh, sing, play and be heard!  


Our Voice of Vibrant Health

9:00AM – 3:00PM

Our food, our emotions, our environment and our actions provide vibrant energy! What patterns may still be there that will get in your way? Today you will learn the effects of our emotional health, the power of nutrition and learn the root causes of most illness and pain. We are going to get on the massage tables and help each other to heal! Today is living a vibrant and healthy life!
