Step into your Authentic Power with Rachel Mann
Transform your deepest wounds and step into your authentic power through sacred dances, drumming and song, fire ceremony and shamanic journeying with animal allies jaguar, raven/crow and bear. Meet your ancestors to receive the gifts they have given you from their triumphs and hardships, so you can walk with empowerment and confidence.
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 2.5 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.

The Fold & the Flow: May 31 - June 2 | Friday - Sunday | $275 | Register
In this weekend workshop, we will alternate sessions of personal writing with the meditative practice of origami. We’ll begin by creating a folded cover for a small handmade journal that you may use for the workshop and take home with you.
Mixing times of quiet reflection with moments of fun fellowship, this workshop will exercise both sides of your brain and delight your senses.
In each of several writing sessions, participants will hear examples of writings meant to inspire and encourage, spend time writing in the peaceful surroundings of Galleywinter Farm, and share their drafts (if they wish) with others in the small group. These sessions will be punctuated by shorter sessions in which you’ll learn a few simple origami designs.
If you are interested in attending a workshop in 2019, please email me! email@example.com

Dinner & Salon Evening with Poetry Readings by the Fire following daylong retreat
We’ll gather in the fertile darkness of winter, where quiet contemplation in the warm radiance of wise women will invite your unique stories, images, memories and ideas to flow onto the blank page. By slowing down and attuning to our bodies through mindfulness, improvised movement, sensory awareness practices and artful rituals, we’ll practice writing from the inside-out. Writing from this embodied place awakens creativity, insight and connection to our true nature. Writing within our compassionate community offers inspiration and support for the unfolding of your authentic voice. We will breathe, move, sit, write, draw, and share what arises in the space between our hearts and pens. Emphasis is not on technique or critique. Rather, we will cultivate practices to engage our body-mind wisdom, write freely and expressively, and become authors of our lives.

Come join us for a weekend of women's empowerment! Learn the 22 stones of the Sacred Spiral and how they apply to you. The Spiral is considered the oldest symbol in human consciousness and represents the path that all women walk. In Shamanism, knowledge is passed down in symbols. Through drumming, singing, journeying, mediation and philosophy, you will gain a deeper understanding of the woman's path here on the Earth Mother!
Get away from it all and stay at the nurturing space of Galleywinter Farm. Healing and satisfying plant-based meals will be provided, based on the healing protocols of the Medical Medium, Anthony William. Treat Yourself to an empowering Women’s Weekend!
Susan Wolf Thunder Raven has been studying and teaching Shamanism since 1993 when she met her teacher, Black Bear. She is the Director and Founder of Wolfsongs School of Shamanism, where she trains healers and passes on the ancient knowledge. Since 2016, she has added a new healing modality based on the information of the Medical Medium, Anthony William. Using her intuition, she guides people to healing through natural food and supplements.
