One Day Retreats

Come rejuvenate, find wisdom within and share yours

It may feel hard to find our personal center these days. We may often find ourselves questioning a lot of things we’re experiencing or seeing in our world. These retreat days are designed to help you refuel and center yourself as well as take tools away from the event that help keep you centered.

We want you to be you without restraint, and if you can do it here, we are confident you can bring that part of you out to the world too. Gathering at these events brings you to people who accept the differences between the ideas of others, (and will likely revel in them!)

These retreats are for people looking to neutralize the playing field of life, share wisdom, and discover the resources to access their own personal power.

As teachers we are here to support, see, and hear you, as well as have conversation around the things you wish to gain deeper understanding about.

At each retreat there will be an opening mediation and a process where we clear energy to help you shed the heavy pieces of your life to see yourself more freely. It's important to live your journey rather than endure it. It’s through sharing our vulnerability where the magic begins.

Cheri Bunker is a well connected drummer, a free spirit and delight who has decades of experience with drumming and many other holistic modalities. (Bio below)
Amy is a long time intuitive reader who helps people trust and be themselves.

*Shamanic drumming is an ancient technique of beating the drum 180 beats per minute and is used to access the Theta waves of the brain. When we are stressed we are in the Beta state and when we meditate we are in the Alpha state.  Theta is the dream like state accessed by beating one monotonous strike on the drum for a period of time. We will honor the four directions and enter into a space of serenity and peace.  Come meet your power animal or totem through visual dreaming and be open to insight. Let the drum beat carry a healing message.  Will your animal be the Bear, Buffalo, or Coyote?  What messages do your power animals have for you? We will learn how to shamanic drum for ourselves and others. We will also connect our spirit with each other through the circle as we drum the heart beat of Mother Earth.  Share your personal power animal vision with others if you wish.  Bring a frame drum and beater if you have one or one will be provided for you

These retreats are held at:
Held at Art Works Eagan 3795 Pilot Knob Rd Eagan, MN 55122

Tell your friends about the event. There is nothing more magic than word of mouth.
