Sacred Ceremonies

The experience of Sacred Ceremony is a deep and often beautiful journey to the heart of what really matters – an opportunity to face and integrate shadow, transmuting trapped energies and making them available for life-affirming purposes. Sacred Ceremony healing helps you search – sometimes in the darkness – for what’s been lost. True healing can be challenging, requiring courage to face fears and commitment to your healing journey. Sacred Ceremony is also an amplifier that will bring to the surface patterns and programs that do not serve you.

Sacred Ceremony does not allow us to suppress issues and escape reality. In fact, the opposite is typically the case. It compels us to face, resolve, and release issues that have been buried.

Surrendering to the healing process is essential to cleansing and integrating painful memories, emotional blockages, and self-limiting patterns. The accumulation of these things prevent us from re-discovering our true selves and living a life filled with joy, abundance, and inner peace.

Group Sacred Ceremony

A Group Sacred Ceremony is an intimate circle in which approximately six to fifteen people (depending on venue) are led by an expert facilitator through an often life-changing journey. No matter what the size of the group, each participant is doing his or her own personal, individually-focused work as the ceremony unfolds.

Participants are attended to with great care by the facilitator and a small team of experienced guardian-assistants.

Overnight Group Sacred Ceremony 
These ceremonies are usually offered on Friday and Saturday nights, allowing participants to choose to participate in just one ceremony or both. Participating in two ceremonies in a row has greater potential to facilitate deeper healing and transformation, however, we recommend that participants follow their inner guidance whether to join us for one or two nights. Overnight ceremonies begin at 4:30pm and finish at approximately 11:00am the next morning after a light breakfast and sharing circle.

Day Group Sacred Ceremony 
Occasionally, we also offer group ceremonies during the day, which generally run from 9:30am to approximately 7:00pm.

Post-Ceremony Integration 
Post-ceremony integration is one of the most important aspects of the Sacred Ceremony experience. Ceremony participants are invited to an online Group Integration Call which takes place in the week following group ceremony weekends and other group ceremony events. This group call offers guidance in processing and integrating the ceremony experience into your daily life, and is included with your donation for participating in the group ceremony(ies). In addition to the Group Integration Call, there are also options to meet by phone, video, or in-person with the group ceremony facilitator, with Shellee Rae, and/or with one or more of our ceremony integration guides.

Facilitators
Group Sacred Ceremonies have one primary facilitator (Shellee Rae, Anu Peter, or Kevin Dodson), assisted by a team of two to five guardians.

Requested Donation
Our requested donation for your participation in a Group Sacred Ceremony is $260. To reserve your spot, we ask for a deposit of $60 per person, per ceremony.

Table Ceremony

A Table Ceremony is a one-on-one Sacred Ceremony with just you and your facilitator. Table Ceremonies usually begin in the mid or late morning and last approximately 4 to 6 hours. The 4 to 6 hours include initial preparation and discussion time, approximately 3 hours of energy/shamanic/body work on a massage table, and time afterwards to process with your facilitator and have a light snack.

Preparation for a Table Ceremony is similar to that for a Group Sacred Ceremony. It is important to prepare your body, mind, and spirit, as well as to set strong intentions for the ceremony and initiate the appropriate diet prior to the ceremony.

Post-Ceremony Integration
Post-ceremony integration is an important aspect of the Sacred Ceremony experience. Following your Table Ceremony, there are options to meet by phone, video chat, or in-person with your facilitator and/or one or more of our ceremony integration guides. You may also participate in Group Integration Calls which take place following all group Sacred Ceremony weekends.

Facilitators
Table Ceremonies are available with Shellee Rae, Kevin Dodson, and Anu Peter.

Requested Donation and Scheduling
The amount of the requested donation for Table Ceremonies varies by location and per facilitator. Each facilitator arranges their own scheduling.

A Solo Ceremony is set-up similarly to a Group Sacred Ceremony, but it is designed for just one person to experience. The participant is led by an expert facilitator through an often life-changing journey.

Private Group Ceremony

A Private Group Ceremony is the same as a Group Sacred Ceremony, but is for a couple, a specific group of people, or family. These ceremonies are intimate, overnight or all-day experiences in which two or more people are led by an expert facilitator (and, as needed, guardian-assistants) through an often life-changing journey.

Post-Ceremony Integration
Post-ceremony integration is an important aspect of the Sacred Ceremony experience. Following your Private Group Ceremony, there are options to meet by phone, video chat, or in-person with your facilitator and/or one or more of our ceremony integration guides. You may also participate in Group Integration Calls which take place following all non-private Group Sacred Ceremony weekends.
