About this trip

We are dreaming a collaborative dream...

One where every day is nourished by the spontaneity of creative play & the ritual of daily practice.
Where we are consciously choosing courage over fear and continually opening our hearts to the unknown of new creative frontiers.
Where art is something that we all feel free to make because we know our role as co-creators of every moment with Life, this Earth & One other.

Play & Practice.
Presence & Purification.
Creation & Liberation.

Will you join us as we venture into the powerful & majestic valley of Ghost Ranch, New Mexico and call in the New Year of 2019 with intention?
We welcome you to join us in our collaborative dream!

May we all consciously remember our divine creator-ship; weaving a tapestry of collective empowerment, and leaving a legacy of Love, Light & Liberation on Earth through our co-creations. 

Location

Ghost Ranch, Abiqui, New Mexico 


After leaving Santa Fe, New Mexico and driving about an hour, you enter the landscape of vast vistas, table-topped mesas, tall cliffs, the Rio Chama bordered by huge old cottonwood trees, mountains in the distance and more beauty around every bend in the winding road. “It is not a country of light on things,” said Georgia O’Keeffe. “It is a country of things in light.”


The landscape of Ghost Ranch—made famous by painter Georgia O’Keeffe—encompasses 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors and vast skies. People from all over the world come to work together in creation care, to paint, write poetry, to hike, ride horseback, to research globally renowned archaeological and fossil quarries or simply to rest and renew their spirits.


We will be grounding down as a group in a private home, Casa Del Sol.  Located two miles from main Ghost Ranch main campus, Casa del Sol is a retreat space at Ghost Ranch dedicated to deeper spiritual contemplation. Casa del Sol is a single story adobe home built in the mid-1930s with 7 bedrooms that open up to a shared plaza. Three hermitages are set at the base of the multi-colored 700-foot tall cliff wall with a chimney feature standing guard, and a heart shaped labyrinth is off to the side, bordered by prayer ties and flags fastened to sagebrush.


Much of our movement practice and daily events & ceremonies will be held in a private Yurt on Ghost Ranch's main campus.

Alex is a believer in the magic of the heart, and the healing power of movement. She has been teaching yoga as a way of life for 6 years, and practicing for over a decade. She has shared her teachings in the United States, Finland, Germany, and India. After receiving a 200 hr. certification through the Laughing Lotus Yoga Teacher Training in San Francisco where she teaches regularly and co-leads teacher trainings , she went on to study Yoga Therapy through the government of India at Yoga Vidya Gurukul. Her life as a professional dancer has gifted her with extensive practical knowledge of our human anatomy, and a powerful mode of expression which is the bedrock of her deep understanding of how to guide others into their own bodies. She became a Reiki Master/Teacher in early 2016, which she holds most high as it continues to share its healing magic with her and all she touches. She believes she is here to create sacred spaces for healing & self-discovery, for the benefit of all.

This Retreat was a profound dive into community and self practice. Alex and Sena created several practices of reverence involving ceremony, cacao, yin, yoga nidra. I am deeply grateful for the space created. Would totally go on a trip with Alex and Sena again!
Alex and Sena are amazing facilitators and open their hearts to make sure everyone has a transformation with their guidance. I highly recommend their retreats.

How do you rate a trip through the cosmos to the heart center of your soul and the universe? Seems like 5 stars isn't enough. Aside from the gracious space and phenomenal food, this retreat saved me several lifetimes of samsara. Alex and Sena have something special going on. You've got to be there to believe it.

Reiki 1 was a wonderful, transformative experience. Alex is a lovely facilitator who creates a safe and sacred space to learn these beautiful healing modalities. She also provided delicious, healthy and nourishing snacks that were a special treat!

Alex created such a beautiful, sacred space for our workshop. Her energy felt like that of an old friend, cozy and inviting, allowing all experiences to arise and be keenly heard. Thank you Alex for your gift
