Immersion Into Cross-Cultural Shamanism Retreat

A very special retreat in Northern New Mexico

June 17-22, 2024

Join Jose and Lena along with renowned shamanic teachers from Ireland, John Cantwell and Dr Karen Ward, for a true immersion into practices, teachings and experiences bringing ancient wisdom from the Celtic and Toltec traditions. The retreat will be held on a powerful piece of land in Northern New Mexico where the natural environment will enhance the experiential aspect of the teachings and shamanic processes. This is a unique offering that promises to be informative, transformative, powerful, healing, and loads of fun. The community aspect of these retreats is always nourishing as well as the nurturing nature of the land itself.

Níl Neart Go Cur Le Chéile

(Phonetically: “Neel Nee-art Guh Kur Leh Kayla”)

Only In Togetherness Is There Power (Translation, Irish proverb)

Two ancient shamanic traditions, each from either side of the Atlantic Ocean, come together in a powerful offering under a Full Moon and in the field of the Summer Solstice this mid-June in New Mexico, USA. Bringing the Toltec teachings are José and Lena Stevens, bringing the Irish Celtic are Karen Ward and John Cantwell, to a nature retreat in Northern New Mexico for six magical days.  Experienced guides and mentors, the four bring graceful mastery to practices, rituals, ceremonies, inner and outer mystical adventures that will move and touch all who are called to this very special gathering. Whether you have roots on one or both sides of the Atlantic, whether the wisdom of the Irish proverb speaks to you, we live in a time that summons us to sit, heal and rise together like never before.

As with all immersions in Nature, Pacha Mama/ Mother Earth is the wise teacher and you will experience her beauty and wisdom at a private nature retreat in Northern New Mexico, a diverse landscape at approximately 7, 000 ft of altitude. Personal transformation is supported through the spirit of community, powerful exchange, laughter, humor, and an open heart. Shamanic wisdom comes from direct experience and the four teachers will create blended practices, along with their sharing of tradition, myth, lore and lineage. Magic and synchronicity awaits us at Eagle Bear this June as Summer Solstice and Full Moon combine in the days of the gathering. We hope you will join us for this potent celestial cauldron and powerful blend of wisdoms.

Our nature retreat ranch is 1000 + acres of diverse landscape offering a variety of ways to connect with nature. We are fortunate to have both the solstice and the full moon to enhance our experiences and provide an opportunity to work on the land with powerful energies from both traditions. 

This retreat is not suitable for anyone who has mobility issues as we will be wandering around on uneven ground at altitude (7000 feet) with some steep, some flat, and there are some distances between tent sites and facilities. 

The retreat begins at 2PM on Monday June 17th with an opening ceremony and ends with a closing at 11AM on Sunday, June 22nd. Tuition is $1395 with a $500 deposit to hold your space. Tuition includes camping with your own equipment and all meals. Balance due May 15, 2024. All fees non-refundable/transferable after May 15, 2024.

Our ranch offers glorified camping facilities: a variety of campsites, a 30 foot yurt for group meetings, an outdoor kitchen and dining area for group meals, outhouses, shower house with on demand hot water, and several vintage trailer “bedrooms” (no facilities) for rent on a first come basis. Our camp kitchen provides excellent tasty meals that are simple but delicious, with vegetarian/ gluten-free/ dairy free options at every meal. The kitchen is not a gluten or nut free one and we cannot accommodate very special diets or allergies to commonly used ingredients.

Unless renting a trailer “bedroom”, all participants need a small tent, pad, light sleeping bag, rain gear and good shoes. A questionnaire and release will be sent upon sign up, followed by a logistics package with detailed pack list, orientation information and directions to our ranch.

For those not able to join us for the retreat, John and Karen will be offering a workshop on Celtic Shamanism in Santa Fe at the Women’s Club in Santa Fe on Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29, 2024.
