Per skill level and physical ability:
- I will keep hiking to the ability of the group. The ability to walk at a gentle pace to the sites where we will sit and feel the energy is required. For those with health issues, please ensure to make me aware of what is occurring and check-in with your healthcare professional prior to the trip to prepare.
- The location of the retreat will be determined shortly and will be in the Sedona, Arizona area.
- Cost of retreat includes: hiking, retreat classes and spirit ceremonies and walks. For the first retreat, individual lodging options and most food will be at an additional cost as there are so many unique needs of attendees. For the second retreat we may do a group house, let us know when you contact us your preference for getting your own lodging or being in a shared situation (we can try for private rooms in a home depending on size of group - let us know your preference).
PRIVATE RETREATS in 2017
I am offering Sedona private retreats after the group retreat. Most private retreats are 2-5 days. Private retreats are for individuals, couples and small groups.
For private retreats there is also a potential for other times of the year so feel free to contact me for options
When you are feeling called to a retreat, sometimes you feel you would like personal attention without concern for other's energies. That is when private or couples retreats are a great option. You can work with me to create what you need and I'll build the retreat with you to ensure you receive what you are seeking and more.
From posh retreats to staying in cabins in the woods, we can find your personal experience and ensure we weave in vortex work, healing and empowerment work, bodywork and healthy food as you wish to.
I do private retreats for individuals and, at times, couples retreats.
***All of those interested in retreats must have had or must book at least one session with me so I know you and your needs and process prior to attending.
This allows me to ensure I am clear on your energy and how to blend the groups energy in empowering ways for all. My retreats are POWERFUL and I hold a SAFE space for all.
Please know this is to ensure you and all attendees have the best experience I can offer.
"My Sedona experience was beyond what I could have expected. For the first time in my life I truly felt the connection people talk about. I learned to step into myself in ways I hadn't realized I could before and I took home real and useful tools to stay in my power and hold my boundaries. I completely recommend the experience!"
"My only regret is I didn't add another day or two for more personal work with Jenifer. I had booked a 3 day private retreat and found with the vortex hikes, amazing bodywork, shamanic healing and more I felt half-way through when I left. Jenifer was so kind to do distance work with me to help me complete as soon as I got home. Next time I will do a 4-5 day to get more time to process while there. A truly magical experience and one I carry with me every day.
Thank you Jen-Satya!"

"My partner and I did a retreat together and had no idea what to expect.
Jenifer took well-used time with us to craft the perfect experience from helping us choose lodging to food options and how we wanted to work with her. We felt like we were working with a travel planner and a healer/teacher at the same time. What we experienced was the best of everything. My partner got sick on the plane, Jenifer had remedies ready to ensure his queasy stomach went away immediately. I got a migraine the second day, Jenifer took it away in one bodywork session. Just everything was amazing and every time I felt like things could fall apart, she helped us pull it together in ways I couldn't have imagined possible on my own. I felt so taken care of and so did my partner. We call her Dr. Mom as she kept curing us and taking care of us. The vortexes and sessions were also wonderful, honestly though, it was Jenifer herself, her constant peaceful and empowering presence, that made us feel like this was one of the best vacations we had ever had."

"I did the group retreat in 2003. It's now 2015 and I'm still processing it (in great ways). Some of the things I learned actually took years to come to light and when they did were amazing 'a-ha' moments. I did a bodywork session with Jenifer while there and it was the most unique and powerful energy experience I've ever had (I'm a bodyworker too). She has some serious gifts and a humility that is so graceful you know she is something special. Grateful and hope someday to return for a private retreat. Blessings!"

"I did both a group retreat in 2003 and a private retreat in 2007. I also do a private retreat with Jen every other year wherever she is (last one was Santa Cruz, CA and it was amazing and changed my life!) Now I'm preparing for another retreat in 2017. Having done both group and individual, I can say for me they were very different. The group retreat was wonderful, the others were very supportive and I know that was in large part due to Jenifer holding a space that didn't allow for problems between us.
The individual private retreat was also amazing and we worked through some deeper issues that I don't think I would want to do in a group setting. Of course, I could always schedule private sessions as well.
Having done private retreats with Jenifer in CA, PA, NYC and AZ, I'd say Sedona is top of the list of favorites, Jenifer's ability to tap into the vortex energy and run it through you is incredible. I think I'd go for that alone.
So if you haven't signed up yet, DO! Maybe I'll see you there!"
