The real voyage of self discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.

Dynamic Mythology Retreat • Damascus, Oregon



  SEPT 23-25, 2016

Similar to the transformational stories written in mythology, our soul evolves following a similar mythological journey... an exploritory  evolution where we rediscover power and purpose in life. The rediscovery of your life source, at a cellular level, is what the Dynamic Mythology Experience is all about.

The Dynamic Mythology Experience utilizes five contemporary shamanic movement and dance-based modalities for accessing levels of shamanic trance. Shamanic cultures experience the entire body as a thinking organism rather than limiting intelligence to the physical brain. By stimulating the body and mind simultaneously, shamans journey to parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems come clear. These dynamic vision journeys are legendary, providing the foundation for both individual and cultural wisdom.

 Shamanic cultures do not limit intelligence to the physical brain... but rather experience their entire body as a thinking organism. By stimulating the body and mind simultaneously shamans journey to parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems are possible. These dynamic vision journeys are legendary and became the basis for acquiring individual and cultural wisdom. An individual or community's capacity to see the future allowed for the responsible selection of any number of choices... and personal ethics were based on experiences derived from these journeys. Therefore, wisdom is acquired less from 'thinking about' and more from experiencing our own future.

Entering Your Body/Mind Consciousness
RITUAL TRANCE DANCE is a unique blend of healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of sensory deprivation - all together stimulating an 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and 
emotional well-being. Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years. Our contemporary approach to TranceDance brings together the richness of these ancient rituals with some startlingly effective modern techniques. The end result is access into the deeper realms of ourself and the universe... a glimpse into the mystical world that lies beneath our normal perception of reality.
Trance Dance's primary focus is on healing and our relationship with spirit. By dancing within the seclusion of darkness we discover parallel realities where solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems are possible. Through Trance Dance we ‘disappear', become more like our spirit, and simultaneously less attached to our difficulties, making it possible at these moments to let these problems go.


The 12 Mystical Stages Of Our Spiritual & Physical Evolution

RITES OF PASSAGE is a study of evolutionary wisdom. Rites Of Passage is based on the dynamic principles of the circle, spiral (spiritual) or sphere. Rites Of Passage is a holistic spiritual model that describes the inevitable journey that we must all go through in our lifetime. 12 Rites of Passage explores the spirituals peaks and valleys in life... the 12 points of transformation that guide us towards wisdom and tranquility.
Rites Of Passage clarifies when and why we experience life crisis, and more importantly offers alternative approaches to transforming these dilemmas. It makes no difference who you are or where you are; these passages are experienced by everyone. Through Soul Hunting, Trance Dance and other ritual techniques we can intentionally journey through these 'passages' to discover the deeper purpose and meanings within life. As each stage is experienced and understood, we develop a growing wisdom and intelligence that serves as the foundation for living an enriched life and creating a balanced society.


Rediscovering The Lost Pieces Of Self

THE SOUL HUNTING EXPERIENCE® is a contemporary shamanic integration ritual. It is a journey into the deepest aspects of your spiritual world (psyche)... a place where the parts of the soul retreat to when overwhelmed by power. The purpose of Soul Hunting is to release our resistance to feeling our full life force, and then to retrieve the damaged pieces of our life that reside beneath these overwhelming events.
The Soul Hunting Ritual is rooted within one of the oldest forms of shamanic transformation known to humans. The literal translation of the term shamanic means ‘the ability to see through the dark’... to find perspective again. Soul or shadow journeys are legendary. Participants are transported on a journey into an alternate reality or a 'shamanic trance' where ii becomes possible to reunite with these damaged pieces of the soul. The Soul Hunting Ritual energizes the spirit because it resuscitates the deepest parts of our psyche... and renews aspects of our personality that manifest wisdom, strength and spiritual well-being. Soul Hunting Ritual participants report that they are able to reconcile previously irresolvable difficulties and illnesses and achieve a state of integrity, wholeness and well-being. Participants frequently report that their Soul Hunting journeys are among the most rewarding events in their lives.


Journeying For Power

SPIRIT ANIMALS are elements of the natural world which guide us through complicated growth experiences... revealing insights into how to best manage matter with energy. What this means is that Spirit Animals illuminate the spiritual side of our life, guiding us through complicated life circumstances that our linear, logical mind could never resolve.
The Spirit Animal Dance is an experience of being possessed by power. In order to achieve the authentic revelation of a spirit guide we must first surrender our ego-self to the flame of trance. Then like the Phoenix that rises from the flames our spirit guide can appear. Shamanic cultures worldwide acknowledge the relevance of surrendering our body/mind to the guidance of nature... animal spirits that show us the way towards wisdom and truth.
Spiritual transformations are based on experiences that first overwhelm, with understanding coming later. This is particularly true of shamanism and the Spirit Animal Dance. This ritualjourney is a doorway through the shadow side of life... a journey that ultimately illuminates a pathway to a unified soul. Through the Spirit Animal Dance each participant’s unique relationship with a spirit guide will be revealed, thereby creating the foundation necessary to achieve authentic spiritual transformations.

Pathways To Forgiveness

Shamanism is rooted in the belief that the soul is eternal and never dies. Therefore, ancestors are the historical manifestations of our eternally evolving soul. Ancestors make up the very fibers that constitute what we call wisdom.
Shamanism’s view is that spirit and ancestors are synonymous... one and the same, our organic connection bound together by a timeless line of reincarnations that govern all aspects of nature. Somewhere within the evolution of western culture we lost appreciation from the importance of these genetic, organic connections. We walked away from our relationship to ancestral wisdom.
Instead we embraced various forms of religion... and what religion promises life beyond death. Meanwhile, in this lifetime we frequently feel spiritually fragmented and incomplete. Believing in a future concept of spirit has slowly eroded our capacity to detect wisdom... and reestablishing our capacity to cultivate deep wisdom seems to be directly linked to personally re-experiencing our ancestral evolution. Perhaps the 'self' we seek is not one self but rather a deeper, collective ‘evolutionary self'... an organic wisdom which appears when we embody the spiritual lives and guidance of our ancestors. DNA research continues to validate these physical connections we have to each other. It suggests a relatedness between all human beings, a common genetic code alive within everyone.
THE ANCESTORS WALK® is a contemporary trance ritual that facilitates the reestablishment of these genetic and ancestral links. By utilizing a innovative technique titled Whole-Track Evolutionary Recall participants can 'walk' their particular genetic path... encountering buried aspects of their ancestral story and revealing a deeper understanding of how evolution can answer important life questions. The result is an enhanced capacity to channel ancestral wisdom into our everyday life.
