About the event

Join Aimee Traeden :: Shamanic Sound Healer & Death/Grief Doula, AND  Jessica Barnes :: Intuitive Sound Healer & Grief Doula, as we gather in the beautiful Wasatch Mountains at Rushing Waters Retreat Center to pay homage to our emotional landscape of Grief & Holy Rage. 

This day-long retreat will consist of multiple Shamanic Journeys, Sound Baths, Somatic Practices, and Shamanic Rituals to facilitate the alchemizing of emotions. We are not gathering to fix or get rid of them; we are coming together to feel them. As we join together in nature, we consent as adults to bear witness to others' pain and to be witnessed in our own.  

Grief was never meant to be experienced in isolation, yet we live in a culture that tends to isolate us when we are in deep emotion.  Most people learn at a young age that emotions = wrong, bad, negative, low vibration, too much, too sensitive, or crazy.  

This is NOT the truth.  

Believing our grief and our rage is wrong, bad, and too much keeps us in isolation. 

No matter the size or depth of your loss, let's come out from the loneliness and come together.  There is no measurement or judgment of grief and rage, as all loss can equate to opening that doorway into the depths of our being that can feel complicated and painful.  We welcome all loss here. 

What can you expect: 

  • Shamanic Journey to Retrieve a Helping, Supporting Spirit in Animal form to support you throughout the day. 
  • Shamanic Journeys to help Pendulate between love, joy, loss, grief, and rage. 
  • Sound Baths to help regulate our nervous systems and integrate the pendulation of emotion. 
  • A Shamanic Ritual to push our grief and rage out of our bodies to help release the pressure valve and allow our emotions to rise to the surface to be felt, seen, heard, witnessed and alchemized. (we are not fixing or working to get rid of or get over it) 
  • Time in nature to reflect, down-regulate your nervous system and connect to your inner knowing of your connection to the Earth, the ultimate healer. 
  • Somatic movement and practices to help embody and integrate what we may have been suppressing. 
  • Connection to others who have felt isolated in their grief and rage. 
  • A collective releasing of the grief and rage that exists on our planet. 
  • Delicious snacks and water. 
  • A Potluck dinner to connect to each other in community.

* In our Shamanic Journeys, we will be altering our brain waves with Sounds like drums, and singing bowls, NO PLANT MEDICINE is involved. 

**You do not need to have any Shamanic Journey experience.  Aimee Traeden a Shamanic Healer for over 11 years will safely guide you in a gentle and loving way to connect to your inner wisdom, and to be supported as we retrieve the Spirit Guide in Animal Form that will want to support you throughout the day.
