Join world-renowned shaman and healer Brant Secunda for a weekend of authentic shamanic practice on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
Step out of your everyday to focus on releasing unwanted negative energy and connect with the 4 directions to become more centered in your heart. Through guided practice this program offers opportunities for you to experience the power and beauty of shamanism for yourself.
Celebrate in sacred ceremony, journey into the nierika (spiritual doorway) to draw in life-fore, and learn the ancient art of pilgrimage to connect with waters of Grandmother Ocean.
CONVERSE WITH NATURE
Whether you live near or far from the ocean, we all have an inherent connection to the sea. Life arose from the depths of the water and so we continue to draw upon the power of water to sustain our own lives.
Create a more positive outlook on life through reconnecting to the spirit of nature. Join us to experience the cleansing of body, heart and spirit on the shores of the Monterey Bay.
BRING BALANCE TO YOUR LIFE
Brant will teach you practices to harmonize your soul and expand your spirit. With internal balance you can deal with the difficult situations in life with greater confidence, ease and a feeling of self-empowerment.
Shamanism promotes a balanced lifestyle in which we are centered in ourselves, but also aware and a part of everything around us. By learning to be natural, or in tune with nature, we can all gain more fulfillment in life.
CIRCLE OF COMMUNITY
People from all walks of life participate in the program. Teachers, business professionals, therapists, doctors and students all have something to gain from this special weekend.
No matter who you are or what you do, this retreat can help you improve your life, gain a deeper understanding of the healing aspects of water and learn how to apply ancient wisdom to modern problems.
CLEAR YOUR MIND
Meditate on the healing sound of the crashing waves. Let the sound wash away negativity and make space for all things positive. Allow the sound of the ocean to bring healing to your soul.
The Huichol have traveled to the Ocean for thousands of years, in order to honor her life-giving power and to purify their body, heart and spirit.
PILGRIMAGE TO GRANDMOTHER OCEAN
One of the highlights of the weekend is a pilgrimage to Haramara, Grandmother Ocean. Learn to approach places of power in a sacred manner. In turn, you have the opportunity to absorb the oceans powers of beauty, love, and clarity.
Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices to connect with the spirits of nature. It allows for an opening of communication; an opportunity to commune with the energy of a mountain, a lake or in this case, the sea.
Born in New York, Brant Secunda journeyed to Mexico at eighteen years old, where he was adopted by the late Don José Matsuwa, who put him through an intensive 12-year shaman apprenticeship.
For nearly 40 years now, Brant has been fulfilling the vision of his teacher; sharing the ancient wisdom of the Huichol around the globe.
