Shamanic Healing Sessions
Billie is an Empathic Intuitive, Certified Usui and Shamanic Reiki Healer
Billie is able to act as a channel between the physical and the spirit world. Her unique gifts allow her to see and hear messages, as well as feel things which are often reflected through her own physical being as she experiences a deep connection with the Earth and the Spirit World.
A healing session with Billie is a renewing experience that can provide comfort and guidance for personal growth and health through the messages that the Spirits provide.
Energy and Shamanic Healing serve as excellent complements to ceremonial work, as they help ready the nervous system for the medicine and can assist participants in aligning their intentions.
During the retreat Joe will also be offering cold plunge exposure sessions as well as group breathwork therapy.
The goal of any breathwork therapy is to support people in achieving a greater sense of self-awareness and capacity for self-healing. It also helps people work toward overall improvement in mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
When you take time to slow down and purposefully breathe deeply and slowly, you tell your brain that everything is OK. Your brain communicates to your body that it’s safe to relax. The fight or flight response decreases, and your body can begin to function normally again.
It’s easy to become overwhelmed by stress and feel out of control. When you focus on breathing, you allow your body the chance to reset and recover from the negative side effects of stress.
Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:
- Balanced blood pressure
- More time in deep sleep
- Reduction of PTSD and feelings of trauma
- Stronger respiratory function
- Better immune system
- Release of stress hormones from your body
Physical health benefits of breathwork may include:
- Fewer feelings of depression and anxiety
- Better mental focus and clarity
- Decrease in addictive behaviors
- Allowing emotional scars to heal
- Better outlook on life
- Contentment and joy
Cold Exposure Therapy
Joey also practices cold exposure therapy and offers guidance for others wanting to immerse themselves in extreme temperatures. Frequent exposure to cold is linked to various health benefits.
For example, scientists have found evidence that cold exposure speeds up metabolism, reduces inflammation, swelling and sore muscles. Many athletes use ice baths and other types of exposure to cold to speed up recovery after physical exercise.
Furthermore, cold exposure therapy is also linked to improved quality of sleep, improved focus and improved immune response.
"At a time where I wanted to try something new to improve my mental and physical health as well as my relationship to myself and my family, I stumbled upon the description of one of Billie's plant medicine retreats and decided to register based on her training and experience.
It was one of the best decisions of my life and my expectations were widely surpassed. I rapidly felt a genuine connection with Billie. Her authenticity, generosity and capacity for listening, teaching and energy healing are astounding. Throughout the retreat, I felt supported, safe and, most importantly, loved.
I have since noticed in me a mental, emotional and spiritual shift I have never experienced before despite years of therapy. I am thankful for the new healing modalities Billie has introduced me to. The path I have glimpsed for myself doesn't look easy, but through the ups and downs, I have moments of hope and clarity, and feel blessed to know that Billie is there to support me."
Marjorie ~ Authentic Relating Medicine Retreat (April 2023)
"Billie and Joey create incredibly safe and supportive spaces for healing, transformation, and rejuvenation. I deeply appreciated their guidance before, during, and after retreat. The support has helped me level up and take the next steps in my personal journey with more joy, self-understanding and confidence."
