what past students have to say about the Ancient Scotland retreat:
Traveling to Orkney with Isa and Laura's class was one of the best
group experiences I've had in my life. It also served as an awesome
introduction to the spiritual technologies of the Neolithic age. The
remains are remarkable, and Isa and Laura did a great job of feeding us
just enough historical and archaeological information to set the
context but then encouraging students to experience these sacred places
directly for ourselves, in both ordinary and nonordinary reality. You
can understand why this became a site of pilgrimage and sacred
building; the islands themselves are magical - so far north that you
feel the curvature of the earth, and land, sea and sky come together so
closely that you aren't quite sure sometimes if you are walking,
swimming or sailing through the air. Sarah M.
The Orkneys trip was a true homecoming for me. Just thinking about the
sense of home and adventure, rolled into one, that I felt during the
trip brings tears to my eyes even today. It was such a blessing, all of
it. I reconnected with some truly ancient friends in the most
surprising ways, and in a way, I felt that the trip rejuvenated me and
gave me a new lease on life. It was truly a life-changer for me in the
most positive way. Johan R.
Scotland is an initiation into an important message for our times, how
to be in connection with the earth and a gatekeeper for this modern
era. Being on the land is a transformational experience, a
profound remembering of the sacred mystery and divine feminine that is
alive in our consciousness and souls. Isa's class provides an
entry point to the wisdom that is available and ready to be integrated
to deepen our sense of our selves and connection with each other.
There is nothing like the Orkney's. It was a truly deep and
mystical experience. Sarita S.
