Ojai in Chumash, ʼawha'y, meaning “moon”. Welcome to The Valley of the Moon…

Our retreat setting is tucked away in a private property on a beautiful ridge in Upper Ojai Valley, overlooking gorgeous views of mountains and coastal live oaks. Home to the Chumash - the early inhabitants of Ojai, the red-tailed hawks, owls, black bears, foxes, mountain lions, coyote, Matilija poppy and the sacred Datura plant. We will be communing in a truly wild and magical place. Ojai is said to be a vortex of energy which can bring us all back into connection with the land and our truest selves.

We will also be visiting Ojai Hot Springs, a sacred land site located in Matilija Canyon including a rare mix of ecologies, creek and hot springs sustained by a community supported agricultural program. This area is very remote, rugged and part of a steep canyon filled with brushy vegetation.

Jessi Campbell of Eagle Eye Healing

Ever since Jessi was a little girl, she has believed in magic. Always curious. Always imagining. At around 5 or 6 years old, she remembers looking down at her hands, knowing they had healing powers. Her most-loved activities included splashing around in the creek, crushing acorns for potions, air guitar, and pretending to be her favorite animals. Over the years, these first loves have evolved and expanded, but their essence is still the same. From dance to theatre, from permaculture and plants to singing and playing drums in a band, from tea ceremony to reiki and eye pillows...and everything in between, her wild passion to facilitate magical transformation is the force behind all her many loves and creative endeavors. All crafted and carried out by her healing hands.


Jessi is a level II practitioner trained in the Tera Mai Seichem lineage. She has also received a Violet flame attunement as well as a YOD attunement, the first of the 21 Egyptian cartouche initiations.

Offering:

30 minute Reiki Clearing Sessions - $60

90 minute Reiki Healing Sessions - $160

Reiki Clearing Sessions are a mini version or preview of the full healing session. In these sessions, I will just focus on the couple of chakras that need the most attention.

Reiki healing sessions work along the chakra system —activating & balancing your energy centers & removing blockages, so that your life force, or Ki, can flow freely and naturally.

Reiki, plants, crystals & sound create a bridge to the mystery of the unseen. I believe it is there — in between worlds — in this liminal space where the most deeply profound & spontaneous healing can take place. Between asleep & awake, spirit — or the subconscious, speaks to us in dream language. A poetry of symbols, color, sensation, emotion & memory. Your imagination reveals what has been underneath — what is surfacing to be healed.

This can be much like a guided journey. Everyone is capable of this experience. However, us modern people hold much resistance, and it can take a few sessions of clearing before we can start to tune in and feel.

There will be time at the end for a dream analysis. I, too, enter the dreamtime, and we will weave together our experiences to illuminate meaning in the messages. You will leave with exercises & ritual to continue the work.

These sessions move energy, inspire transformation & clear the way — they are not a quick fix. The healing path is deeply personal & open-ended. It is the great joy of my life to help you walk it.

Taylor Montague of Akashic Light

Certified Advanced Akashic Records Practitioner

A believer in heart-centered clairvoyance and channelling, Taylor (@akashic.light) has been expanding her awareness into the many aspects of spirituality since childhood, navigating a sensitivity that at times she didn't understand. After being introduced to the Akashic Records, Taylor was able to channel the many mysteries that at times overwhelmed her into a practice that is not only an exploration but also a celebration. She went on to receive multiple certifications from Akashic Records expert Dr. Linda Howe and Elite Certified Akashic Records Teacher and Practitioner, Helen Vonderheide.

By deepening her connection to spirit in the Akasha and through years of training, Taylor began to open the records for others. Coming from a background as a creative professional, Taylor embraces each reading as a discovery, a dance, a way to be reconnected to your soul’s purpose and is fascinated by the unique offerings held within each session. Stepping aside, she acts as a clear channel between your Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones, the Akasha, and You.

Madre Jaguar

Madre Jaguar is a Reiki Master, Shamanic Healer, Clairvoyant, Tarot Reader, Teacher, Birth Doula and Intuitive Artist.

Madre Jaguar has always walked between the worlds. Ever since she can remember she has experienced visions, prophetic dreams, visitations and a strong clear connection to her Spirit team. The daughter of Salvadoran immigrants, of Mayan and African descent, Jaguar was born in the vortex that is Los Angeles, California and raised in Mexico, land of Catholic Mysticism and Magic Realism.

Nature was her first teacher. Jaguar spent most of her childhood observing and studying the cycles of Nature, connecting and experimenting with the energy of the elements, animals, herbs, plants, flowers, crystals… As a child, her maternal grandmother taught her ways to communicate with the plant kingdom and ways in which these allies could be used to treat all kinds of ailments from a tummy ache to a broken heart.

As an adult, a passion for helping others and a strong desire to help propel positive change in the world around her, led Jaguar on a path of self-discovery and exploration of different healing modalities including Reiki, Shamanic Practices, Folk Magic, Herbalism and Tarot. In 2016 I was initiated into the Shipibo lineage of plant medicine and curanderismo. It was in the Amazonian jungles of Peru that she received the name “Madre Jaguar,” which means Jaguar Mother, a protector and healing spirit.

Madre Jaguar believes that Love is our super power, and as human beings we are here to bless and be blessed by all of creation. Harmony and Joy are our birthright. Through her healing practice, readings, classes and projects Jaguar’s goal is to help you connect with the inner power, wisdom and magic that lies within, all while helping you remember your Divine origin and unique soul purpose.

WOMB HEALING & ACTIVATION Workshop

A woman’s Womb is her Center of Power, her connection to the Earth and to the Cosmic Mother, a place where the Divine Feminine resides. It holds the potential and knowledge to birth profound new creations beyond just the physical – it allows women to create on a mental, emotional, psychic and soul level.

This sacred space embraces ALL experiences, holds the energetic signatures of our ancestors, and holds every imprint of our emotions, including joy, pleasure, trauma and our deepest grief. When we do not fully express, explore and release these emotions, we lose part of our Self. Our connection to our life force and to the creative power of our Womb diminishes and becomes blocked.

The Womb Healing & Activation is a Healing Ritual and Energetic Transmission to honor this sacred space and reconnect women to their center of power (or its energy body, if it has been surgically removed.) We will work on reawakening the Womb and helping her “remember” her soul purpose while reactivating that link to the Universal Womb and Source of all creation. By removing stagnant energy, blockages and anything that is no longer serving your highest purpose, we will bring harmony and balance back into your being.

During this workshop, we will also discuss The Women’s Mysteries and our rites of passage: the spiritual practice of menstruation, the shamanic journey of pregnancy, birth and mothering and the rebirth of menopause. Learn about the wisdom of the cycles, seasons of earth and your own life seasons, the influence of the lunar cycles and how they affect us. We will finish by performing the Rite of The Womb; an energetic transmission from a lineage of women from the Jungles of Peru intended to heal all women of the suffering they carry in their belly.

This work is empowering for all women and of special importance for those that have suffered trauma, sexual abuse, experienced miscarriage and/or abortion, hysterectomy and anyone that is feeling disempowered or disconnected from their true nature.

When we heal the Womb, we heal ourselves; as we heal ourselves the planet heals.

*** Please wear comfortable clothing, bring a water bottle, a notebook, and pen to take notes. If you feel guided to bring any crystals or other sacred objects to charge during the ritual and add to our altar, please bring those as well.

Womb Healing & Activation Private Sessions available:

A Shamanic Ritual Healing that focuses on healing, cleansing and activating the womb center. Whether the organ is there or not, this energetic center is considered a second heart, a place of intuition, personal power, creation and creativity. This healing session is a great way to help release trauma, creative blockages, unwanted energies and help you reconnect to your power and soul's purpose. During this session we make use of crystal grids, healing herbs, essential oils, sound healing and medicine songs to help create a deep energetic shift and amplify healing vibrations.

Session is approximately 90mins. Energy exchange is $175 for retreat attendees (usually $222)

The Second Sight: Reading Energy, Auras and Energetic Frequencies Workshop

In this workshop, we will learn the fundamentals of reading energy, auras and astral frequencies. Whether you would like to read energy for personal use or for others, this class will help you understand the bare bones of how to give a psychic reading in a supported environment. When you can tap into the energetic frequency of people, spaces and objects, your world will be blown wide open with new understandings and perspectives. We can use this work to deeply heal ourselves and one another through the development of energetic connection. Unfortunately most of our world exists in a linear, logical space. When we can connect with the unseen realm we can shift into a softer, more all-knowing, receptive mind. This workshop will consist of hands-on group work and will end with a powerful meditation that will propel us further into our intuitive journey with confidence through the community. You will walk out of this workshop with a deeper connection to your Higher Self, Spirit and the universe around us.
