AZ Retreat to 'Pass it On'
Seeking Partner Healer Caretaker

Healing Heart Retreat
I'm bodhi heart, 75, and am now being guided to 'pass on' Awakening Spirit hermitage retreat center and adjacent Healing Heart soul sanctuary to younger kindred spirits.  My 2011 visions of a "residential trauma center for sensitive souls" have slowly unfolded as a one-man endeavor. Now older, I'm being guided to cease speaking this Fall Equinox, and to enter what Robert Adams called the "Silence of the Heart" this Winter Solstice. So I need your help to 'pass it on.' 
Retreat Info: Forest hilltop east of Sedona AZ, on edge of small mountain town (Pine, pop. 1000, elev. 5500 ft). The easy 90-minute access to Phoenix--plus ideal year-round climate and Southwest USA's amazing natural beauty--make Awakening Spirit a popular international retreat destination. Improvements include four studio hermitage cabins, two 2-bedroom Tiny Houses, and founder's 2-bedroom 2-bath cabin residence. A 3700sf group home has been designed to suggest future possibilities for group housing and retreats.
Website Info: Awakening Spirit (url below) and Healing Heart (click photo) offer pictures, descriptions, and interactive video experiences to provide visitor info and enhance intuitive connection. Website videos use trauma experiences and offer visitors an intuitive sense that there are ways out of hopeless helplessness. A third website envisions a network of "12 independent retreat centers and 12 centers of awareness"--from Argentina to Alaska--but until now, only Colorado and Costa Rica are online.
Personal Info: Born days after D-Day, I was diagnosed with 'developmental trauma at age 70 when I was crushed and clueless.  Blessed with spiritual guides, loving therapy, and experienced energy work, I began to discover that trauma accumulates and is triggered--again and again--until choiceless choices lead to lasting recovery and soul transformation. My retreat websites now reflect the spiritual mission I've been guided to live ...and "to pass it on" now.
Request for Help: Seeking managing partner, heart healer who's experienced own trauma and awakening self-awareness--perhaps Sacred Feminine embracing soul trauma recovery, or just old souls with younger bodies. Please see homepage videos from both websites, share what resonates, and email me or forward this invitation to your like-hearted friends.  If you're interested, please share your own experiences, strengths, and hopes, and hopefully to ASAP schedule a retreat to investigate. I'm ready to trust Love will find a way ...and to get out of the way so it's easier.

Magical Peru Retreat
May 5-14

Heart of Mother Earth Peru Retreat
Pack your bags and.... your SIX senses!!!  The perfect way to experience Peru! We will be immersed in nature and local culture. The retreat is designed to minimize any effects from high altitude as we will fly from Lima to Cusco and immediately head down to the Sacred Valley and return to Cusco after a few days exploring the valley and Machu Picchu. We will be well cared for by our guide who will make sure we are comfortable, safe and free to explore the wonders of Peru. The guide will show us unique sights, culture, fantastic food and arrange for a shaman to perform a ceremony. If you have dreamed of going to Peru, this may be the perfect way to experience all it has to offer with a small group of like minded people. There will be a full moon and we can do our own meditations and ceremony.
