Guided by Starlight: Finding Sacred Direction in Life
TBD - Friday, 5pm - Sunday, 2pm
In this transformational retreat, don Zane Curfman leads us through the initiatic rites, ceremonies and prophetic wisdom teachings of Peruvian Shamanism.
The weekend is a ceremonial enactment of Sacred Remembering, bringing us one on one contact with the higher aspects of ourselves.
During our time together, we will learn to apply wisdom contained in Chakana and the Qapaq Nan symbols, to our ceremonies and healings. Zane will perform a rite of magical confirmation, placing us under the tutelage of our Earth-Stars, "Nature spirits that our life paths were spiritually entruste to at birth." These Earth-Stars serve as guardians and have influence over the direciton of our lives. Our Earth-Stars guide us on the path of ascension, leading us to the celestial light of our guiding star.
On Sunday, we will visit the Suyu Apu Serpent Mound, performing a sunrise ritual-blending with its divine energy and anchoring the ceremonial work we have performed over the weekend.

I recently attended a workshop with Zane and found it very refreshing to meet a person who is in such right
relationship with their heart and able to gently communicate with others so they too may expand their senses
and sense of self ...leading us back to the garden.
I came away with a new way to think about my connection to Spirit. ...Not only are you a healer, but also quite a
I will always remember connecting with the elements of nature & our special group for the rest of my life ...I
forgot about work (entirely) for the first time in 2 years. Thank you.
