Merging with the Phoenix
Deepening into Essence

A Journey into Our True Identity


Join us for a six day retreat September 21 to September 27th, 2019
Led by WindEagle Kinney-Linton and Hope Langner in Abiquiu, New Mexico.


As I enter 2020, what is my dream of myself? How do I really know myself? Who am I becoming as I step into the next decade?

We loved the metaphor of the Phoenix as we all have had experiences of finding we need to journey more deeply into the self to remember our own way of being and the gifts that we carry... and sometimes it is coming from the ashes of our previous experiences that we find the deepest discoveries and even the gold that is buried there.

In this ceremony, we will experience the unfolding of our wings to reveal our deepest essence. We will co-create with nature, honoring our intention to step into the fullness of our being. Ceremonial experiences and teachings will take place in the medicine wheel and on the land and will include visioning, dreaming, art, journaling, contemplation and deep conversation.



We will offer some of the ancient ways that open pathways leading us to see into our own life mirror, illuminating where we are and calling us to vision our future.

We are not always aware of the traps or patterns that we walk, or what we consciously need and want as ways to balance our lives and ways of being. And at times, our self care is set aside while we take care of everything else in our life first. We will open each of these pathways with reflection in our morning hours, while working with different forms of art and beauty in our afternoons. All of which will lead us toward stepping into our own ring of power.

The final day of this retreat will be a high ceremony day, culminating in an experience of magic by the night fire, dressing in the essence image of our true spirit manifestation.
