Retreats and Ceremonies
Seasonal and New and Full Moon Ceremonies
Meditation, Journey, and Wisdom Circles
Drawing from wisdom and practices gathered from around the world, we create a sacred space together and deepen our connection to the divine in us and all.
Meditations, Journeys, Spiritual practices are shared and experienced in each circle. We never know what we will be guided to create or what practices are opened.
We gather in community with strong intention to raise our energy and heal and move forward in our lives. Each circle is unique as we gather and support us and all in the circle and earth.
“Janet. Thank you for an incredible night at the healing circle last night. There was so much healing, love, and community with your compassionate and inspired guidance. I felt a huge weight lift that I’ve been carrying throughout this difficult time. I have so much love and gratitude for you and all who attended. It was a lifeline for me.”
We will address what is happening in our lives and the world and develop the understanding of higher spiritual truth and love and how to live it now.
StraightArrow’s high vibration of energy and wisdom blended with the group will raise us all up and move us light years ahead on our journey each month.
It is a great value to have a foundation of neutral unconditionally loving support, wisdom, and knowledge to keep us grounded and positive.
To know and trust our own wisdom is a practice worth deepening and growing. We know more than what we imagine or think.
Be The Medicine is based on a continual process of living our inner wisdom and accessing our limitless being in everyday life. No Fear. Love and Trust.
Evenings from 7-9 pm. Come to experience peace, love, truth, and how to deepen it in our lives today.Enjoy sacred space and feel energized, relaxed and renewed.
Bring your intentions, prayers, questions, joy, journals, pens, and water.
Shamanic Mitote One Day or Overnight Retreat
A Mitote is a transformative, high energy, and focused Toltec Shamanic ceremony purifying us and raising our vibration and light, offering a release of illusions and past hurts to awaken higher wisdom and truth. Perfect preparation for our new beginnings in our lives, with messages and visions for the next stage of life.
The intent is letting go and allowing rebirth. This unique and profound ceremonial event raises your energy-vibration, breaks through stuck places, and awakens new vision. A beautiful blend of Shamanism and Yogic Chant, we gently birth ourselves into the next phase of our lives.
We experience the purification of ourselves on all levels. We chant the Gayatri Mantra, a high vibration mantra chanted throughout the early evening ceremony by a smaller group rotating in the center. You are either chanting or dreaming on the outside of the circle. You raise your energy and allow lucid dreaming visions and inner movement.
StraightArrow has led many of these ceremonies in 5 states over the years. It is a favorite among her students.
“Janet is a midwife who holds each soul in love and bliss, helping them to surrender and be known. Every word that flows out touches everyone, clearing limiting beliefs rebuilding perfect mental, physical, and spiritual health. She is a blessing to all.”
Bring your pillow, a bedroll, with cushioning for your lucid dream time. A life-changing experience timed to awaken your life.
"We just finished a Mitote... We were in an amazing space, but the truth is it would not matter where we were. Janet brings the safe container, and then we build upon it. By safe container, I mean a safe place to explore your true self, cut out the illusion, and discover who we are. We were able to experience the love within and integrate it to bring it back out into the world whole and strong, resolved to be our true selves and abide in our true nature”

SHAMANISM AND HEALING RETREATS

Vision Quest Mitote Retreat– A Sacred Rite of Passage
A time for you. Pause and get off the track of your life to go inside and discover your true voice, needs, and choices, and your inner wisdom as a gift you give yourself.

Are you moving through a big change this year? Come for a powerful weekend of ceremony, Journeys, transformation, and rebirth with Shaman Janet StraightArrow. Awaken clarity, life purpose, and joy as we break through illusions, fears, and ego. This is a gentle yet powerful life-changing weekend.
Adding the Toltec Mitote to the Quest allows for a deep clearing and transformative experience. By the time you come to your silent time on the weekend of questing, you are ready to have a profound experience. By the end, we are rebirthed into us gently and take the space to begin to process and integrate by the time we leave for home.
The main reason you go on a Vision Quest is to stop the world so you can find yourself. Without interference, responsibilities, and the roles and rules of who you think you are, space opens up to receive. Vision comes in the subtle experiences as you release attachments and see and feel the truth. The deep inner self, the soul, has an opportunity to speak and be heard.
The gift of letting go of daily routines and comforts to experience living in nature where there is little to no interference from the world is always quite enlightening.
We become present for the big and the little things in our life. Nature nurtures us and shows us beauty and wonder in each moment. In our sacred time, we remember who we are and listen and learn more clearly.
Big changes are often made before or after the quest, or you are about to go through a new phase or rite of passage, or you are just ready to go deeper on your journey and learn more.
A Mitote Ceremony is the purification of us on all levels, breaking up stuck patterns and allow visions to come to us in the lucid state. We chant the Gayatri Mantra is chanted throughout the ceremony by the smaller group rotating in the center at the fire. Either you are chanting or dreaming on the outside of the circle in this experience, allowing the raising of your energy and profound cleansing, visions, and inner movement. I
In your sacred spot in nature, you realize just how long an hour or twenty-four-hours are in a day. This new perspective helps us to decide how to make better choices with our time at home. We bring back wisdom, a new perspective, and increased energy.
Using Shamanic practice and tools, we prepare for your quest time in the group sharing this experience. Each person will have a safe place close enough and far enough away from one another to have their private experience. We will work together for one day in the community to prepare for our solitude and silence. After we come back to the main camp, we gather to share our experiences to prepare to go back into the world.
Janet StraightArrow has led many of these ceremonies over the years. The Mitote is a favorite among her students. Each quest is unique in location, times, and organization. We may be camping in tents, under the stars, or in cabins.
