Soul Vision Nature Retreats-Individual and Group Camping

Your Sacred Nature is Calling!
Join Quynn Red Mountain for a Personal Camping Retreat at the Tucson Desert Sanctuary of Mindful Walking– Located in the Sierritas, 35 miles southwest of Tucson, AZ.

 

“Nature” has been my greatest teacher. Everything I have become and will be is because I have been able to get quiet and listen for the teachings that ride the winds.  My extensive time connecting with various public lands of the western U.S. states has been a powerful teacher. Many forests, deserts, waters, mountains and fires have shared their intense teachings with me. Their unique beauty, all the challenges of weather, and the inevitable discomforts, have strengthened me. I am grateful that I have learned so much by being quiet and listening, and they are calling me now to hold space for others as you too quiet down to listen.

It is time to listen, so we are clear when we act. Quynn Red Mountain

 

As a Human, our individual power is limited, yet when we actively connect with the sentient Nature Spirits of the world around us, we open our hearts and listen for guidance.   As we listen, we grow our ability to hold more Sacred Power to make beneficial Change in our personal and community life, as well as in our relationship with Mother Earth.

Your Soul Vision Personal Retreat offers you an opportunity to deepen your connection with the Spirits of this unique and powerful place in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, so that you can decipher the messages most needed now in your life.

These sacred soul experiences take place on land owned by Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church, and are offered as part of Quynn Red Mountain‘s Ministry to her Animist community.

 

Nature Quiets the Mind so you can Hear your Heart.
Come to the desert to listen.

Quynn Red Mountain, Nature Explorer, Animist Minister and Shamanic Practitioner,  tends your camping and soul exploration needs for this two night sacred experience (and she cooks dinner for you too!). 

Quynn understands how a Personal Retreat can be a meaningful way to honor an important time in one’s life.  She has been blessed to spend many days, nights and months of her life off the grid, and knows the power of Nature as Teacher.  This very special place in the Sonoran desert has nurtured Quynn and her spiritual health since 2001, and she is honored to be able to now share it with other Animists.  This land is close to Tucson, has cell service, yet is off the grid quiet. It is a dynamic location with far views, sunsets over the sacred Baboquivari Peak, a hike-able hill at the south end of the property, and offers spiritual rustic camping  for Animists that are ready for a Soul Vision retreat.

 

 

This retreat allowed time for personal reflection, listening to the land and becoming acquainted with her various life forms and expressions, sharing with other retreatants if desired, and cleansing body and soul outside the hustle & bustle of city life – all in a safe desert environment with limited guidance from Quynn and lots of time for silent reflection.

  •  Every Retreat begins and ends with prayers and offerings for the land and the Spirits of those who live here.
  • All Retreats are Cannabis friendly for MMJ patients, as long as communion does not affect anyone else.
  • While the start and end times are set, there are no specific times stated or intended for these retreats. All happens at just the right time.
  • Weather is, of course, always our companion, and can also be our biggest challenge.  Trust that just the right weather Spirits will be present for you and what you need most for your retreat (and know that we will be prepared!)  Please note that this land is 1,000 feet higher than Tucson, so nights are cooler than in town. 

A note from Quynn- If we have not yet met, I ask that you attend a circle before your Retreat time so we can get to know each other and our Spirit ways.
Here is our calendar of Tucson and online events  https://shamanicanimism.com/events/

 

All donations support Earth Web Media, our Animist nonprofit (church). We acknowledge that this event takes place in the traditional territory of Tohono O’odham nation. All participants and event hosts are expected to make offerings and leave no trace on this land.

Now is a perfect time for you to dive into your deeply personal connection with the Nature Spirits around you (Quynn calls this “Animism”). Experiencing reflective, facilitated time in Nature opens the portal for you to more deeply trust your intuition and feel this connection in your daily life in the modern world so you can more clearly trust yourself and live your purpose.

 

  • Learn from the reflections of Nature to listen within, gain inner clarity, and gain skills that will support you in your daily life
  • Hone your ability to create Nature Altars, Offerings and Prayers (Sacred Dialog) for and with Places, Situations and People
  • Strengthen your personal relationship with the Nature Guardians in this sacred place
  • Feel the authenticity of your Nature-honoring Spiritual Path, through your own DNA memory and the land around you
  • Strengthen your relationship with the Nature Beings of this specific place
  • Recognize the flickering Spirit Powers that nourishes you in the chaos of urban life

 

Quynn supports with a light touch that encourages you to go as far as you possibly can…and then a bit more.
