The Goals Of This Workshop
During your eight days at Blue Osa Retreat and Spa you will learn a variety of personal practices and timeless tools to help you both re-member yourself and to connect to your highest spiritual essence. You will learn how to harness the guidance of the spiritual authority of the Earth and heal yourself at every level of your life.
Eight Days In Paradise
Through expert teachings, innovative experiences, practical training in the shamanic and channeling process as well as through connecting with the most potent power we have, La Madre, we will embody the physical and generate a matrix of energy that will fuel each persons ability to contact guides, entities, higher self and spirit. You will remember a lost art that is available to every human being.
Time To Play
The first necessary step to unlocking your innate ability to receive and perceive the vast subtle levels of consciousness all around you is to re-awaken you ability to play. Play is the exuberant expression of our being. It is the heart of our creativity and our sexuality. Play feeds our joy and wonder and tethers our search for meaning to the Earth herself.
And as a center pointe to “Awakening the Oracle” we will focus on teaching you to channel your highest self, listen to spirit guides and tap into universal wisdom. We will teach you a number of tools through experiences of Shamanic Journeying, Art, Dance and Writing as we communion with La Madre. And each participant will have a reading with the soul group, “Michael”, through Mary Jonaitis.
“Channeling offers fertile ground for play — not in the sense of foolish amusement, but as voluntary activity, having its aim in itself and accompanied by a feeling of tension, joy and consciousness that it is ‘different’ from ‘ordinary life.’”~Michael F. Brown
And as you tap into readily available wisdom from your personal guides, you may want to spend your time asking
~ What is my higher purpose for this year? This life?
~ What blocks or fears do I have that would prevent me from attaining this?
~ What skills or attributes do I have to help me attain my goals?
~ What message of love and compassion do you have that I need to hear at this time?
The child in all of us never forgets how to play, always makes joy and awe available to us as adults. During our time we will rekindle our relationship to the child in all of us. Children are clear channels, free beings embodying what it innately means to be human. But over the course of a lifetime, cultural assimilation and the illusion of the mind, we grow to forget the child and all the innocent, playful, joy of being a child. The child is our essence. The child is spirit and source.
Wake The Body And Ignite The Heart
Allowing ourselves to sink into the arms of the great mother, the earthly elements, the vast ocean that will be what holds us during our time at Blue Osa, the elements and the animals will help us to return to our childlike selves and become the clearest vessel for consciousness, as it was intended. We will wake up our physical bodies, ignite our hearts and inspire our minds, as we connect with energy from the cosmos.
We will learn to listen beyond our personalities and egos. Through deeply connecting to self and spirit in a myriad of creative ways, we will be able to both hear and understand why we are alive at this auspicious time on our planet. We will catalyze our purpose, clarify what is next in our lives and recognize our own reason for being.
We will locate, through inner research, the “seeds” of our unique, personal contribution for this life and do ceremonies involving offering these “seeds” to La Madre.
Although we will have an overall plan for what we want to accomplish during our time together and the tools with which to do that, each day we will engage various techniques and journey together to find the specific teaching or theme for that day.
What “Spiritual Authority” Says
Here is what Spiritual Authority had to say about how they see what we can learn in this unique time together. This wisdom was channeled by Mary Jonaitis through the entity Michael.
Each one of us, as a soul, is an intentional droplet from the vast ocean of Consciousness.
Each individual heart is a spark from the Fire of all Consciousness.
Each of us, so small and dwarfed by the immensity of all Life, is such a singular, precious gem.
We are meant to proudly and confidently show to the Creator our inspired uniqueness,
our beautifully faceted windows into the wondrous gem-self of our inner souls.
And this relationship with the Creator begins with the spirit deity of the Earth, herself, the Creator’s emissary and guide.
She wants and needs, us, her children, to share with her our beauty, our pain, our dignity, our strength, our dreams and hopes for our children.
She will generously give back to us, in return, the messages of guidance that we, as individuals, need for healing our minds, our hearts, our bodies and all of our relationships.
Then, and only then, will she be healed as well.
