A Walk on the Wild Side: Answering the Call of the Wild

Led by Rose De Dan, Wild Reiki and Shamanic Healing, this annual event offers participants the opportunity to meet highly respected wild Animal Ambassadors, participate in shamanic ceremonies and learn from them over four days at Earthfire Institute. The intention of the retreat is to break down barriers and build bridges of unity and connection, facilitating healing for all participants, both two and four-legged. The result is increased intuitive awareness and communication skills applicable to all species, and freedom from limiting patterns and lifelong negative beliefs. A powerful opportunity for deep personal healing as well as global transformation.

The ability to listen. —Susanne Ritzenthaler

I am very grateful for the experience. I will keep it in my heart and soul and share it with all the people I meet and are able to listen. Being able to contact the animals in a way I didn’t even dare dreaming of. —Susanne

Being with the animals and people of the retreat has shown me that it means to be one. Susan has shown me what it means to be determined with an open heart and a strong mind. John has shown me that with patience all things are possible. John’s connections with the animals of Earthfire are like nothing I have ever seen. Because of John and the animals I know I can have this with my animals. Highlights: When Susan said “Let it flow through you. Feel it.” Watching Jean and the way he and the animals are connected. I will be forever grateful to all that were here, two legged and four. The land Earthfire has been built on is amazing. —Phyllis Robinson

I gained a lost connection between myself and animals. It’s not that I couldn’t connect; it’ that the connection has changed to a much deeper level. The type of connection has also changed form a domestic understanding back to a wild and natural understanding. Earthfire truly allows you the opportunity to reconnect,. The knowledge and understanding that Susan and Jean have with every animal makes the connection that much greater. Highlight – the opportunity to heal what came up for me that needed my attention. The time that Susan and Jean took to answer all our questions and willingness to help each and every one of us. —Jolene Lugo
