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

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 listen for what is most needed now in your life.

These sacred soul experiences take place on land in the territory of the Tohono O’odham People.  This 28 acres has been donated to, and cared for by, Earth Web Media’s Web of Life Animist Church.

Quynn Red Mountain, Nature Explorer, Animist Minister and OOlah “One Who Balances”,  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.

Rooted Being- Plant Enhanced Retreat

Friday, March 29 (2pm)-Sunday, March 31 (noon)

We connect with plants every day, and rarely do we acknowledge these allies as the Teachers and sustainers that they are. Each person has relationships with a variety of plants and this weekend we will appropriately listen to the plants that are ready to teach us.

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 the space to call upon the Spirits of the plants that can help you to deepen your connection with this unique and powerful place in the beautiful Sonoran Desert, so that you can decipher the messages most needed now in your life.

Each participant is asked to bring 3 plants of personal importance to this retreat. All the plants of the retreat land are our teachers. Want more info? Contact Quynn.

      •  Every Retreat begins and ends with prayers and offerings for the land and the Spirits of those who live here.
    • 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, or reach out to have a conversation, before you register.
