Introducing "Nature as Medicine" Immersion

Prior to becoming a holistic health practitioner, Gina's previous service was in the environmental field.  She worked as an environmental educator, activist and technical consultant.  Her first retreat center was called Gaia Center for Transformational Healing for Groups, Individuals and The Planet.  On the final day Gina spent at her power spot on a river in southern Maine, she witnessed a local family transform from expressing anger to love, peace and harmony.  This took place over the course of two hours simply by fishing together.  This spot gave Gina many profound shamanic (nature based) messages on her visits over the years, so she paid attention.  After witnessing this family transform, she knew this was what she was being called to do in her new home in Crestone, Colorado.  

Crestone is located in the San Luis Valley of South Central Colorado and is one of the largest energy vortexes.  The streams run through mountains of crystals and the energy is intense and transformative.  Most of the trails have meditation spots along them and little statues or prayer flags to remind you to drop in.  Gina will bring you to the sacred sites of Crestone, CO, home of hundreds of spiritual centers, where you can have your personal connection with nature.  Gina will guide you with meditation, qigong and other cleansing techniques that will allow you to be even more receptive to nature's medicine.  Come to Crestone for your wellness retreat and be sure to add a Nature Experience to your retreat itinerary.
