WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki translates to Universal Life Force Energy. It is an intentional way to use our energy for the highest good. When we call upon reiki energy, we become conduits of healing. It has no dogma or religious affiliation attached. It is an energetic tool that helps to secure our intuition and deepen our relationship with our unique energy blueprint.
Hi! I'm Taylor. I am so excited to be joining the incredible Heather on this magical retreat in New Mexico. We have dreamed of offering this for a long time now, and here we are. A little bit about my background, in 2014 I became a Reiki Certified Practitioner because my mom was intrigued and asked if I would join her in learning about Reiki. This was a game-changer for me! Reiki has increased my understanding of self and others on an energetic level, and the power of the unseen. It opens doors to amazing self-inquisition, love, and healing on many levels. 1 hour private session with Taylor $100.
"Taylor has been a guiding light and key element for my healing and my Self-empowerment, over the years. Her gifts are undeniable!" - Heather
Ojo Santa Fe Thermal Soaking Pools
Soaking is an ancient ritual that, to this day, continues to be a revered healing practice. We believe in our springs’ healing powers to ease aches, open the heart, and soothe the mind. We invite our guests to set an intention before soaking and to nurture gratitude for the waters.
Our communal soaking areas are tucked amid towering cottonwood trees and surrounded by lounge chairs and Ojo hammocks. These thermal soaking pools are flowing with triple-filtered water from our own natural aquifer, which we gently heat to varying therapeutic temperatures so you can soak to your body’s content.
Heather's Love Letter to You
Hello my Loves!
When I think about sharing sacred space with you in beautiful Santa Fe New Mexico my heart skips a beat! Santa Fe has always been like a second home to me. A place that calls to my Spirit, especially when I need time to rest and rejuvenate. I have been visiting Ojo since I was a young girl with my family. I have experienced the healing benefits of their ancient waters, and the Soul soothing outcome of spending a few days immersed in the energy of the land.
One of the first yoga retreats I ever lead, over 10 years ago, was at Ojo. So, it is an absolute dream come true to be taking all of you back there with me. To add to the magic my beautiful and gifted friend Taylor Epstein will be joining me as a guest teacher/ Reiki Master and guide, on this healing and deeply soulful retreat.
Come prepared to soak your body and surrender your mind and spirit to the healing powers of the water, and the enchanting energy of the land. We can’t wait to start the year together and immerse ourselves in daily holistic practice with our loving community for a few days! See you soon!
