2018 Ochocos Spiritual Expansion Retreat - Balancing Mind, Body & Spirit
Ochoco Forest Camp Group Pavillion
Prineville, OR
Share this event:


        Spend Summer Solstice in the heart of the Ochoco Mountains surrounded by old growth Ponderosa pines, wildflowers and roaming bands of wild horses at the gated venue of Ochoco Forest Camp. This secluded site sits next to the banks of Ochoco Creek and is the perfect setting for this retreat. From the camp it is just eight paved miles to the scenic and swimmable Walton Lake and ten paved miles to the massive June wildflower explosion at Big Summit Prairie with its dazzling displays of butterflies and migratory birds. The almost never used Ochoco Helipad is just a 150 yards above the camp. The dark skies at night make for astounding stargazing at the helipad and you feel as if you are on the top of the world. Lower Lookout Mountain trailhead is just a short distance across Ochoco Creek. Lookout Mountain, with its old growth trees, is in a protected area of the forest that has not been subjected to logging. We invite you to join us at Ochoco Forest Camp as we balance and expand our Selves and celebrate the longest day of the year.  

        Amenities at this group campsite include a large timber pavilion with picnic tables, lighting and electricity if needed in the pavilion. There is also fresh drinking water, very clean vault toilets, garbage collection, creek access and a large campfire ring to gather around. There are no RV hookups for water, sewer or electricity and there is no cell reception. While the retreat is in progress, please be mindful of the volume of your activities at all times. Quiet time is from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am. If you absolutely need to use a generator during this retreat, use is restricted from noon to 1:30 pm and 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Thank you for understanding and respecting the quiet time.

        During the course of this retreat there will be four workshops you can participate in. There will also be group meditation, yoga, fire ceremonies and group gatherings with open, resourceful and respectful dialogue. And you have the option to have up to two private sessions with onsite spiritual, wellness and energy practitioners. There will be time for private reflection, journaling, hiking, swimming, a drive up to Big Summit Prairie and immersing yourself into the grounding and uplifting magic of the Ochoco Forest. A retreat schedule is listed below along with listings of the onsite practitioners and their modalities. You can participate in any activities that call to you or just bask in the company of high vibrational souls in this beautiful forest setting. Playing is encouraged as we broaden and balance our Selves, so feel free to bring your respectful playthings such as frisbees, hula hoops, hacky sacks, etc. Instruments can be played after evening meditations and personal sessions are no longer occurring. Feel free to share your unique gifts and let your inner child play!!!

Crystal Reiki / Energy Work-  By: Tara Townsend
        Our energetic bodies are constantly in a state of flux.  Physical, Mental, Emotional and Environmental influences can interfere with our natural energetic balance.  In optimal energetic balance we are at peace mentally and in optimum physical health.
        Reiki is the channeling of Source energy which is all around us in a continual never ending flow. This energy has a divine intelligence all of its own. Through the action of Reiki, this flowing life force energy is focused and channeled directly into your bodies. Your Higher Self then uses this energy to either harmonize or remove any imbalances or blockages to help heal your physical as well as your subtle energetic bodies (mental, emotional and spiritual). Crystals are used on and around the body to help balance energies and bring the whole into a state of well being.  Essential oils may be used as well to help shift mental states that no longer serve your highest good.
        Many people who experience Reiki and Energy Work report powerful experiences during their session as well as positive and profound changes in their lives afterwards.

Intuitive Readings- By: Diana Aimone, MS
        Intuitive readings are different for everyone and the possibilities for what comes up are limitless. Focus can be on anything from releasing blocked energy and trauma, tapping into past lives, working through current or past hardships, helping you find and work with your personal guides or activating your highest potential and life work. As the name implies, sessions are led intuitively and each session is unique and highly individualized. Be prepared to ask lots of questions as there is no limit to the possibilities of what can come up, what energy can be shifted or what positive changes can occur in your life.

Biofield Reverberation Therapy- By: Shannon Townsend
        Biofield Reverberation Therapy is a whole-body sound balancing and healing technique applied to your chakras, biofield and energy points. Your biofield consists of your aura (aka: etheric body or biomagnetic sheath), your emotional body, your mental body and your higher vibrational spiritual bodies. In my experience this is also the same part of the body that stores our memories. Through lifes traumas and ordeals, the energy flow and connection we innately have to all of these parts of our Selves can get blockages, imbalances and fragmented causing disharmony. This disharmony ultimately manifests as illnesses and dis-eases in our mind and body. Biofield Reverberation Therapy uses either a drum or tuning fork to find the disharmonic and fragmented pieces of our Selves and bring them back into unity, bring them back home, restoring health, balance and a free-flowing connection to all parts of our Selves.
        Biofield Reverberation Therapy Using a Drum-
As the hypnotic power of the beating drum is moved through your biofield and energy points the disharmonic energy is entrained by the reverberation of the drum and sent back to your chakras where it is transmuted into healthier energy. At the same time the beating drum quickly increases the vibrational frequency and free flow of vital life force energy (a.k.a. Chi or Prana) in your physical body and biofield bringing balance, alignment and connection to your chakras and your biofield. When using the drum, powerful reverberating waves of sound are felt throughout the body making this deeply intensive homecoming therapy both relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
