Shamanic Healing Weekend by the River!

  • Jul 18, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

If you're at a juncture in your life... wanting to move deeper into your soul's true purpose, but not sure how...

If you're tired of feeling stuck in old patterns or fears that originated much earlier in your life (or even in other lifetimes), and ready for a quantum shift...

If you sense you have a role to play as a visionary, lightworker, seer or healer in these troubled times on earth...

...Come spend a life-changing weekend of shamanic healing practice - journeying, soul retrieval, energetic clearing and more - in a beautiful riverfront location just 90 minutes from Oakland! Meals provided; lodging available for a small fee, or camp by the river for free! 

If you've been wanting to experience the power of shamanic work to connect you to your deepest self and your guides - or if you've already experienced that power, but want to go even deeper - this weekend is for you.

We'll meet from Friday afternoon through Sunday early evening, letting our guides - and the land and waters - heal, illuminate and rejuvenate us. (Saturday morning arrival is also possible, if necessary - though spending two nights rather than one will allow for a deeper experience.)

Here's the plan:

FRIDAY, July 18


Arrive any time after noon and get situated for the weekend - either in the apartment designated for retreat participants (see below for full lodging info) or wherever you'd like to camp.

2:00-6:00 Shamanic Journeying Intro/Refresher

Since the Shamanic Journey is a powerfully transformational tool we'll be using all weekend, if you don't know how to journey yet, you should definitely plan on being here. If you know how to journey already, come anyway and ease (or dive!) back into the power of working with your guides in this way.

6:00 Dinner

7:00 Fire on the beach. Drum, journey, connect with the land and river spirits - and if we're lucky, the coyotes may sing along with us!


Schedule to be determined according to participants' needs, but will include intensive work in soul retrieval (retrieving parts of your soul that became disconnected due to trauma) and energetic clearing (releasing energetic imprints that don't belong to you, and restoring your energetic integrity.)


The in-law apartment downstairs from where we'll meet has sleeping space for 6 or more people at $50/person per night. There is a full kitchen and bathroom. Or, if you prefer "roughing it," there is space to camp in the woods or on the rocky river beach. Bring your own supplies!

Or of course, you're welcome to find a motel or B&B in town, though summer weekends book up fast out here.


Workshop tuition plus 6 simple but delicious meals - Friday dinner, 3 meals on Saturday, Sunday breakfast and lunch - is only $350.

CAN'T AFFORD IT? Come for a big discount or free if you can do some or all of the cooking!

Payment plans also possible. If you feel drawn to attend, I'd love to help make that possible.

And if we haven't yet met, check out the many outstanding reviews of my Meetups on this site, and learn more about me and my work at  (And if you have questions, email me your phone number so we can chat.) I've been working shamanically for 11 years now, and it has transformed my life. I love to share this work!

In love,

    Shamanic Healing Weekend by the River exceeded my expectations. It was magical, transformational, gentle, and rich. And it attracted a wonderful group of people with whom I now feel deeply connected--very unusual for me. Ruth is an extraordinary teacher. I most highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is ready to connect with their soul's voice and purpose.

    So psyched about spending a magical weekend in Healdsburg, by the Russian River, absorbing Ruth's wonderful teachings. Thanks, Ruth, for opening your door to us.

    It doesn't matter to me whether we do this in July or August or whenever. It sounds lovely so either way I'll be there.
