The Earth Medicine Retreats At Galleywinter

Mother Earth medicine–at the heart of the teachings and practices of The Great Medicine Wheel of the New Earth–offers a profound pathway for soul-inspired activation of transformation and healing.  Study the profound wisdom streams connected to Native American spirituality, Buddhism, depth psychology, and multidimensional perspectives on peace, violence and trauma healing.

At four 3.5 day Lodge retreats at Galleywinter Farm in the Blue Ridge mountains of Central Virginia, eat delicious, nourishing meals, find love and support for all of who you are, build a personal mesa or medicine bundle, share stories of trauma and triumph in intimate sharing circles, sing sacred songs, drum, dance, meditate with mindfulness and loving kindness, and hear wisdom teachings to help you walk with courage, authenticity, power, and love in your life.
