Our weekend retreats begin on Friday evening with check in, an introductory talk by Mark Allen and Brant Secunda, and often an Huichol Indian Deer Dance ceremony or slideshow of the Huichol Indians in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.
Mark presents the latest research on health, physical fitness, and nutrition. He explains the essentials of an effective strength program, and how to eat for lifelong health. You will hear Mark’s personal story of how he integrates fitness and spirituality, and be invited to train, run, or walk alongside him.
Brant Secunda presents the ancient traditions of Huichol Shamanism and the spiritual world of nature. Huichol myths and legends encourage healing and empowerment through direct experience and a balanced relationship with the natural world. Brant teaches shamanic practices of health and healing, dream exercises, and how to approach sacred places of power.
Through the teachings of the body and soul, you will gain greater personal awareness and, in turn, find true and complete wellness.
