Journey Home Artist Retreat

Shamanic Session

 Come to Journey Home Artist Retreat for the day and experience any one of our energy sessions.


As your Shamanic Guide Robert will lead you through the Illumination Process.

The Illumination Process has been used by medicine men and women of the Andes and the Amazon for thousands of years and is a powerful tool for maintaining personal growth, health and wellness
It's underlying principle is that our emotional genetics, and karmic history organizes energy, often leaving dense or heavy imprints in our luminous energy field, which create emotional and physical dysfunction.

The process removes energetic intrusions or heavy energies from the luminous energy field that surrounds the person. By clearing and transforming these heavy energies with light the luminous field can re-pattern the mind, body and soul back to a state of wellness. 

What might a session look like?

Robert will perform a chakra assessment to determine the lowest affected chakra. This will be done through muscle testing and pendulum testing. Generally only one chakra is dealt with during a single session. Robert will then open sacred space, the client will recline on a massage table and the practitioner will gently cradle the clients head to assist with relaxation. The client may hear the practitioner breath in synchronicity to them. The chakra is opened, cleansed, bathed in pure light, balanced and rewound. Sessions generally last one hour with time before and after for discussion  

What will I feel or experience?

Dependent on how sensitive you are, you may feel changes in your luminous energy field. Some clients describe a deep sense of relaxation, others describe body vibration or a sense of heaviness or lightness. Some clients experience visual images or memories that might provide insight into the cause of the imbalance.

What can I expect after a session?

change can occur very quickly for some, but it generally occurs at a gentle pace. The practitioner will often encourage clients to keep a journal, so as to have a vehicle to better witness changes and developments. Some clients may experience vivid dreams of having sudden insights in the weeks following. Others may describe witnessing changes in the way that you interact.

Illumination process is $75.00 for the first hour and $25.00 for every thirty minutes past that.
