Elemental Healing Medicine Retreat Costa Rica April 12-19, 2023

Elemental Healing with Sunny Strasburg and Michele Taggart, and medical supervision with Karen Madigan.  This retreat focuses on the Heroine’s Hero’s Journey, enhancing durable and proven integration techniques unique because it brings two medicines, two experienced facilitators, and four journeys together for a direct mystical experience. We will anchor visionary experience into psychological insight with narrative re-framing. We also use somatic processing to retain lasting change. We are more likely to create resiliency and enduring clarity when the journey is safely combined with best practices; facilitated in a way that is both profoundly mystical, as well as scientifically sound.

Sunny offered her signature IFS & KAP in-vivo demonstration, as well as a demo of EMDR and KAP.  Sunny also provided music and invocations. Melissa Whippo offered her beautiful songs, presentation on working with mothers and lactating women, as well as working with plant medicines.
