Sacred Earth Medicine Herbal Retreat
October 29-November 2, 2014
Aravaipa Canyon, AZ
Join Shamanic Herbalist, Darcey Blue, for a powerful and transformative Shamanic Plant Medicine experience- the Sacred Earth Medicine Retreat. We gather together around the fire during the Day of the Dead/Samhain, in a beautiful and sacred canyon in the southwest to engage our spirits in community, ceremony and teachings from the land itself.
We will work closely with common healing plant allies used in western herbalism and shamanic practices: journey, breathwork, fire ceremony, sweat lodge, and sacred plant bathing, to dive into our work with shadow, ancestral healing, and deepening our relationships with self, spirit, nature, sacred and healing plant medicines, the sacred Earth herself. In a spirited and intimate community of sharing we will also enjoy learning about herbal medicine and plant allies, medicine making, shamanic plant journeys, river rambles and plant medicine walks, drum & song circle and dance, shared meals and star gazing.
The Sacred Earth Medicine Retreat in 2014 is located in beautiful Aravaipa Canyon located an hour and a half outside of Tucson, Arizona at the Aravaipa Canyon Ranch. The private ranch is on 55 acres tucked in and surrounded by thousands of acres of BLM lands and Nature Conservatory at the foot of the Brandenburg Mountains. This area boasts red rock canyons and put quite simply, is a place of magnificence, and pristine beauty amidst the singing waters of Aravaipa Creek where we can get in touch with spirit, our ancestors, the spirits of the land, plants and ourselves. The ranch not only has tranquil spaces, an outside fire pit and a Labyrinth but offers us the perfect backdrop to let the cares of the world wash away and hold us, free us to take this sacred journey and share in this experience together.

Here’s what others have to say ~ Testimonials
“The March 2014 spring Shamanic Herbal Weekend with Darcey proved to not only show each student the doorway they were seeking, but the knowledge and confidence that would unlock their own spiritual journey with plants. We were lovely women of 16 years to 62, and each of us left blessed with experience and sisterhood. Darcey Blue is a gracious and kind teacher who comes highly recommended by this traveler and lover of our mother earth.” ~ Nita
