Peter employs multiple healing modalities, such as Vision Quest, Brazilian Light Energization, and much more. Peter works/travels internationally sharing his heart and gifts of energy. Many know him as “The Energy Guy.”

Your Retreat Experience.

What does Peter provide for those who participate? A great unplugging from the entanglement of daily life! A sense of renewed ‘beingness,’ greater clarity of life’s purpose, great joy in the heart, connection to Gaia, the elements, and the Great Spirit not only around you but within you. A new awareness!

 

You’ll have time to create and send out to the Universe your intentions for health, happiness, and abundance. Time for deep inner cleansing of body, mind and soul of old habits, routines and unconscious behaviors. Time to give Blessings, Gratitude, Empathy, and Compassion for Gaia and all life forms. Including yourself!

 

We will enjoy gourmet cuisine provided by our private chef, exceptional accommodations, a safe, sacred space 24/7.

Special Guest Facilitator! We are honored to have an amazing healer from the Philippines, Rev. Glory Orbito, joining us for this Retreat. She will be performing a very specific Chakra Opening Ceremony to help bring deeper healing and release to our 5 days of walking the “Wheel of Life.” Normally a $900 value, a gift from Peter.

The opening of the Hand Chakras brings forward greater abilities to heal and to share and receive energies. Opening and alignment of the other 7 Major Chakras gives the opportunity to balance, not only the Physical body but also the Mental, Emotional and Spiritual aspects that make us whole. This ceremony allows the higher vibrations to enter and help support.

Retreat Schedule.

The Wheel of Life Retreat officially starts 8:00 AM, January 23, 2023.

Please arrive no later than January 22. Allow yourself time to relax, enjoy an evening of French cuisine and settle into what will be your home for the length of your stay. Play on the beach, check out the pool, walk the beautiful grounds. Consider spending an extra few days unwinding before we immerse in the Retreat.

The Retreat officially ends 4:00 PM, January 27.

You also may want to stay at the hotel after the Retreat ends to have time for re-integrating before heading home.

If you want to bring family, just know you will be committing your days and early evenings with the group. But we wouldn’t want to deny your family the pleasures of paradise!

What is a Sweat Lodge?

Sweat Lodge.png

A sweat lodge is a dome-shaped structure that is heated using hot stones. The traditional sweat ceremony is intended as a spiritual reunion with the Creator, a respectful connection to the earth, to honor oneself, and for purging toxins out of the physical body. It is ancient, sacred, and deeply revered among indigenous cultures.

 

Every aspect of the ceremony, from the construction of the lodge and the fire to the prayers offered, is imbued with spiritual symbolism.

 

Metaphorically speaking, we enter the womb (lodge) to let go (die) of old issues or energetic situations so you can leave the lodge re-born. The hot rocks and the heat are to help impregnate your prayers no matter what they may be. When water is presented to the rocks, the transformation of water to steam is to help carry your prayers to the higher spirit world to be blessed and returned to you.

 

Once the rocks are heated and considered ready, the leader enters the lodge on hands and knees; others follow in the same manner and sit in a circle around the center pit. Once all the participants are inside the lodge, the fire-tender begins to pass in the heated rocks, which are placed in the pit. Then, the ‘door’ is closed, and the leader begins to pray. It becomes a place of safety, giving, sharing, receiving, releasing, cleansing, healing, caring, nurturing, and creativity, allowing us to connect with ourselves, each other, and Mother Earth. Participants can say prayers in their own way during this time.

 

Participants are free to leave at any time, however they are encouraged to remain through discomfort (as opposed to feeling seriously unwell). If it gets very hot, they may lie down on the floor. Anyone may exit the lodge if they want.

Each person brings:

  • 1 yard each of cotton cloth in the colors of yellow, red, black, and white

  • Cotton kite string

  • 3 pouches of tobacco

  • Women wear a long skirt with a modest top, or a long dress

  • Men wear bathing suit or shorts

I'm looking forward to supporting you in your journey, remembering your essence and reconnecting with nature.
