Turning Point: French Plant Shamanism Retreat
Friday, May 18, 2007  5:53:00 PM

by ross heaven

A French Plant Spirit Shamanism medicine retreat focussed on discovering about who we are, what we want from life, and where we are going - and finding plant allies that can help us in this. There will also be time to explore the beautiful countryside of the Pyrenees. March 2008.

Led by Ross Heaven, author of Plant Spirit Shamanism.

We attune ourselves to and diet the plants each day in order to develop our connection to them and learn how they can assist in our spiritual work.

We also undertake meditative practices, quiet time, and time spent in vision (questing) to explore our relationship to the Earth. Through these we slow down to the natural rhythm of life and meet with our allies in dreamspace.

We also learn some of the secret herbal approaches from Haiti and Peru, as well as classical and cross-cultural techniques for working with plants shamanically, drawn from a rich variety of sources. One of these is communion with the spirits of Nature through the vine of souls, and there will be three vision ceremonies this week.

"I thought it appropriate to write today, a week since we all parted. I left feeling much lighter and happier, thinking of all the possibilities that lie ahead, a week later I am still feeling that way. I have been astonished daily and can honestly say, Ross was right, nature IS alive and is talking to us. I feel much more attached to nature and way more in-tune. So nature was saying here, change the way you see things, focus on what you really want, and everything will come back to you in abundance, doors will open and everything will flourish".
Sharon, 2007 participant

"Thank you very much for the most wonderful five days. It really felt like the culmination of a lot of work I have been doing over the past two years and the sheer size and scale of my breakthroughs on the weekend are difficult to exaggerate.

"Although I had a deep sense of wonder at the new developments when I left (and for a few days when I got back when I felt I was floating through life!), I don't think the impact of the work really hit until I saw people I knew again. I feel different now - very much alive and very much in tune with what I want for myself and the world. Inside I feel great, in my head and my heart. I guess the key difference is how I feel: I know that the world and I fit perfectly into each other - which feels pretty damn cool. Thank you for enabling these changes".
Ben, 2007 participant.
