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 your 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 in Sacred Ceremony can be challenging, requiring determination, 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, quite the opposite is typically the case. It compels us to face, resolve, and release issues that have been buried throughout our lives.

Surrendering to the healing process is essential to cleansing and integrating painful memories, deeply embedded emotional blockages, energetic imprints, and self-limiting patterns. It is the accumulation of suppressed memories, blocked emotions, and energetic imprints that 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 twelve people are led by an expert facilitator through a powerful, often life-changing journey. While the small group shares the same space, each participant is doing his or her own personal, individually-focused work throughout the evening as the ceremony unfolds.

Group Sacred Ceremonies are conducted in carefully chosen locations which are diligently prepared for this work, creating truly sacred spaces where participants feel safe, held, and attended to with great care by the facilitator and a small team of experienced guardian-assistants.

Overnight Group Sacred Ceremony  

Group Sacred Ceremonies are usually offered on Friday and Saturday nights, allowing participants to choose to participate in just one ceremony (one night) or both. Participating in two ceremonies in a row (Friday and Saturday nights) has greater potential to facilitate deeper healing and transformation, however, we recommend that participants follow their own inner guidance regarding whether to join us for two consecutive ceremonies or just one. 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 Sacred Ceremonies during the day, which generally run from 9:30am to approximately 7:00pm.

Post-Ceremony Integration  

Following most Group Sacred Ceremonies, an online, guided post-ceremony integration group is offered as an option for those who would like guidance in processing and integrating their ceremony experience into their daily lives. Post-ceremony integration is one of the most important aspects of the Sacred Ceremony experience. In addition to this integration group, there are also options to meet by phone, video chat, or in-person with Shellee Rae and/or one or more of our ceremony integration guides.

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 one of the most important aspects of the Sacred Ceremony experience. Following your Table Ceremony, there are options to meet by phone, video chat, or in-person with Shellee Rae and/or one or more of our ceremony integration guides.

Requested Donation

Our requested donation for a Table Ceremony is $400. To schedule a Table Ceremony, we ask for a deposit of $60.
