You are so much more than what you experience, see and know.
Your magnificent body holds all of the wisdom to heal and awaken,
to remember the spirit of your soul, your dream
and let go…
When we take the time and opportunities- however elusive- to quiet and go deep within, it is in that space of inviting silence on all levels that we begin to remember… The Mystery, the Love, the Healing, the Wisdom, the Medicine allies we all have. They are waiting.
They are waiting to move into the places within your body, your mind, your spirit and soul that have been clouded and confused through the stories we tell ourselves. They are waiting to rewire the traumas trapped through the contracting voices of the mind. Patiently, lovingly they await as you unravel those stories- freeing space for Spirit to move in and restore Life’s greatest gift- Love.
Join me (I would be so honored) and my wickedly wise in her ways co-host, Grace Bryant, in a 4 day exploration of silencing your system on all levels on the vast open wild lands at Skalitude (Fall) in order to re- awaken to your dream, your heart and your allies- waiting. We invite you and your stories to be unraveled, witnessed and released with us and the community that you will call in with your YES to attend.
We will weave together practices to release the body’s contractions and traumas through focused group sessions incorporating active- healing breath work, Hridaya yoga, movement, voice, dance, plants and prayers, the written word and more. Together we will build the blueprint of your daily practice– the foundation to rebuild your altar of self-love, medicine and magic. Together we will awaken your senses to follow the path of your heart- your memory map. Together we will build tools for integrating this powerful work into your life- where the real healing lies.
Our physical system will take pause as we spend a day fasting to reflect on the dis-ease and distractions that keep you from your dream. Within us all we know how to nourish and love our body and thus ourselves- to heal the broken bits that are simply trying to wind us back to balance. Nothing is in conflict with you- especially your beautiful body… Is illness simply a dis-ease of your mind?… come explore.
This is a co-ed gathering, embracing the One-ness we are woven into you. (couples welcome, groups welcome- explore with those you love in silence and witness and see immediate transformation in your relationships ). This is a time to go deep within- in a safe, sacred and silent container. And, if you have taken deep journeys before you know that the healing begins long before we gather once you make that commitment- with that yes to silence meeting soma.
~Group sessions include daily guided breath work and meditation, tools to release stored traumas and contractions, movement, sound and ceremony. You will leave with a blueprint for your daily practice – the foundation for healing. Come prepared to cleanse every dimension, seen and unseen, as we engage all systems in a conscious slowing down and reawaken our intuition to inwardly listen and heal.
~Our food will reflect this intention to slow down and dissect our distractions. We will spend a day in digestive silence with organic juices, tea and water. All other meals will be light, fresh, organic, vegetarian, gluten, dairy and allergen-free. And, of course, made with Love.
~Held at the beautiful Sahale Retreat Center (Spring) the vast open lands at Skalitude Retreat Center (Fall) participants will have ample time to co create with the lands, take a sweat in the sauna- breathe and renew in the pristine natural surroundings. This is the perfect setting for you to remember your connection to the natural healing rhythms that live within and around you at all times.
~The retreat will be held in a sacred container with opening and closing circles. We ask all attendees to arrive and depart as one group (times below) to honor this container. We also invite you to bring an offering as there will be a space to share your medicine and your dream.
With gratitude, Jamie & Grace

Jamie and Grace have a combined 35 years of experience helping to guide individuals in remembering the medicine in their heart through healing modalities of the body- mind-spirit.
Grace Bryant has been a whole life educator for nearly 2 decades, integrating drama, music, movement, meditation and yoga, mindful living, creative play, teamwork, conscious collaboration and leadership. Her Yogic path began in 2005 when her sister dragged her to a Yoga class in Federal Way. She fell in love with savasana and came back just for relaxation.
In 2007, she was inspired to start teaching informally and since then has studied and taught in 6 countries and devoted her entire life to the journey of awakening. Grace recently completed the Hridaya Teacher Training in Mexico and is beyond grateful to have received the teachings of Advaita Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. She believes these teachings can transform the consciousness of anyone who practices them sincerely.
Grace’s favorite classes are those which expand consciousness and also incorporate how to live with more awareness, trust and compassion. She leads classes, discussion groups, workshops, womens groups, and retreats in the Pacific Northwest and abroad with a focus on living with an open heart. Through her many teachers she continues to unfold into a deep sense of peace and trust and hopes to share this in her teachings. More information can be found at her website, www.bewholebehappy.com.
Jamie Renee Lashbrook is a devotee to and warrior of the human spirit- lover of all creatures seen and unseen. She entered the world of healing with a simple desire to invoke remembrance in you. For you to remember your song, for you to remember, tell and transform your stories of love and pain. For you to feel that undercurrent of truth and wisdom that has walked with you every step of every day even when you have felt your most empty and alone. For you to feel connected deeply to your amazing body and understand the language it speaks. For you to remember Love.
In her private practice she blends Maya Abdominal and Clinical Visceral massage, healing breath work, mentoring, herbal wisdom and ancient healing practices based in shamanism and reclaiming traditions. She is highly versed in the functions of the body and dis-ease; specializing in trauma/stress disorders, digestive and reproductive health for men and women. She engages the wisdom of the body through touch, voice, breath, silence, prayer and the healing balms of the Earth.
Her own healing path is her greatest teacher. She commits to this path daily and finds her greatest healing in nature, in silent meditation, song, community and her family. She brings this all to you when Silence Meets Soma.
All participants will receive $20 off an in person or Skype Breath work Session with Jamie or Coaching session with Grace to help integrate the practices learned and to continue releasing any limiting patterns.
