About The Event
New Year Visioning Passage on the Mountain
Visioning invites us to explore the world beyond the seen, and supports us humans opening toward the liminal and the possible. Wild and wildness refers to the untamed aspect of our psyche/Self, and the swirling creative energies inherent within such colorful passion. Wild-visioning is the opening of this inner wildness into the external container of voice & possibility.
Over the course of these four nights and five days you will be immersed into the passage of the new year atop the mountain and create a sacred space for the creative, clear, and wild aspect of your being to accompany yourself & others (human and more-than-human) into the new lunar passage.
Connecting to the wilderness of the natural world is reciprocal to connecting to the wilderness of our being. Our days together will be taken up with weaving the four shields of human nature & ecopsychology as the foundation for engaging in group council, nature-explorations, yin yoga, medicine walks, gentle yoga and meditation.

We will rendezvous at 9:00 AM on the morning of December 29th in Redstone, Colorado. From here we will carpool to the top of a mountain pass and snowmobile for five miles into the mountains and then snowshoe into a remote, off-grid cabin at 11,000' which will be the setting for this retreat.
Heated by fire and lit by solar, this cabin is surrounded by wilderness and vast snowfields of craggy mountains. Four bunks, two twin beds, one queen bed, a warm shower, a snorkel stove, and a full kitchen provide rest and comfort for this immersion, while the forested-earth and expansive vista provide the sacred invitation for contact with a ceremony in nature. The retreat will hold Council as the primary vehicle for our interactions (for more information about Council, please read the description in RESOURCES on our webpage)
Participants will provide their own food and gear. A detailed gear list and logistics letter will be emailed upon registration.
Sliding Scale: Alchemy of Prana's intention for offering a sliding scale option is to support diverse financial availabilities. The diversity of the option creates an opportunity for the organization and all participants to be supported. Please choose the most supportive option from $400-$1,000, and confirm your registration via the deposit option on the registration page. Your sliding scale balance can be paid on the event day and/or before. If you are interested in joining us and cannot commit to these financial options, please email us at email@example.com and share what best supports you at this time.
May we all feel and be the soil in which the seeds of our dreams and our songs can germinate into embodiments of aliveness that are free of separation, embodiments of aliveness that are whole, full, warm and fertile for conceiving awe, wonder and amazement.
