Join Billie Hillis and Crystal Clement for an expansive weekend exploring the connections between medicines and sacred joy that will shed light on how medicine work may enhance our understanding of sacred joy and pleasure and how blending tantric practices with medicines can lead to expansive and enlightening states.

During this weekend retreat we will explore how to have the experience of sensual inner joy and pleasure while being in an expansive space with yourself or your partner, allowing for awareness of senses, breath, and spiritual connection, the exploration of growing intimacy (in-to-me-you-see).

We will learn to sustain a state of pleasure and bliss for longer periods of time, allowing the nervous system to tolerate more happiness and joy.

Learn about your body’s innate ability to create ecstatic levels of ongoing bliss, and receive guidelines for traveling to these heavenly realms alone and/or with a partner.

Testimonial:

"I signed up for a retreat at Gaia because I had friends who raved about different experiences on the property, and because I was going through a rough period and felt like I needed to do something significant, but there is no way I could have imagined how transformational and magical the weekend could have been. 

Everything about my experience was perfect: swimming and kayaking in the lake, walking in the woods and being on the land, the excellent food, the sauna, my cozy cabin, and every workshop: yoga, breathwork, sound bath, the ceremony and its preparation and integration. The personal session with Elyssa, Billie’s apprentice, was also amazing. 

We happened to be four female participants at a similar stage of mid-life, experiencing many similar difficulties as well as differences, and Billie quickly decided the theme for the weekend would be “letting go.” The group was amazing, we connected quickly and experienced something together that I never expected. I will definitely be back, for this retreat and others! Billie even set up a What’s App group for us to stay connected post-retreat and continues to answer all my questions. I feel like this experience was a pivotal part of my healing journey. 

Thank you so much to Billie, John, Eric, Elyssa, Catie (who led the Breathwork workshop), the other participants, and Casey!

CRYSTAL's BIO

Guiding satisfied clients in Canada, Spain Mexico and Columbia, Crystal provides a safe space for your medicine-assisted session of experiencing deep emotions, perceptions and thinking with the loss of your ego. She will lead you to witness feelings of a connection with nature, humanity and the universe.

This would be manifested through different forms such as crying, laughing or being in total silence. She has the required tools and experience to ensure that you have a safe and connected journey. She is highly tuned into what your needs are in the moment to assist you to move with gentleness through both the blissful and sorrowful states.

Crystal is a highly dedicated healer ensuring a loving and beautiful journey before, during and after your experience. A big part of the journey truly starts after the ceremony, what we call INTEGRATION.

Crystal shares shamans' views that all illnesses manifest on a spiritual level (mind, body, soul and spirit). She communicates with the plant spirit, animal spirits, ancestors and all spirit helpers to guide you through the ceremony to discover the cause of your ailment or DISEASE. She will reveal how you can feel it and heal it, raise your concessions and the vails around you. In the end, you will have a deeper connection to yourself and the world around you.
