Shamanic Healing & Transformation Weekend, Auckland

February 8, 2019 @ 19:00 - February 10, 2019 @ 16:30 AEDT


The Innate Wisdom Healing & Transformation Workshop is a powerful, nurturing, experiential weekend to heal, open and transform.

Create a better, freer and easier life by moving through patterns that are holding you back or creating stress or confusion.

This is your invitation to heal and transform your life in the safety of a supportive healing community, connecting with the energies of nature and guided by your own innate healer, the group’s wisdom and the synchronicity of Spirit.

We are excited to welcome our Maori sister Ariana on the facilitation team who will weave together a process to support the core healing work offered during the weekend, while re-grounding into the whenua (land) and present time awareness.

For thousands of years, the medicine men and women of indigenous cultures have understood the physical and spiritual inter-connectedness of all things. This retreat follows universal core shamanic perspectives on healing. It is about restoring balance, right relationship with the earth and with Spirit and retrieving the aspects of Self (or Soul) that become fragmented through difficulties, trauma, neglect, pressure, fears or other experiences.

Investment: A$295 full, A$245 conc. (Early Bird prices to 18 Jan: A$245 full, A$195 conc).

This is a non-residential workshop. Accommodation and meals are available onsite. Morning and afternoon teas and snacks will be provided.
Timings: Friday 7pm to 9.30pm; Saturday 9am to 9.30pm; Sunday 9am to 4pm.

I’m so grateful that you have shared yourselves and your work with me and the world. I put it out to the universe that I find someone doing a mix of Psychotherapy & Shamanic healing that I could learn from only about 6 weeks ago and here you both are!

I didn’t know what to expect but wow you exceeded any and all idea’s I may have on what that may look like. Your work is beautifully paced. I loved the combination of both your energies, Mike’s theory/science explanations as well as his grounded shamanic practice to back up Phoenix’s light and playful yet deep shamanic healing art sometimes subtle and sometimes more obvious.

I saw so much in the healing/therapy, elements of somatic bodywork, energy work, mindfulness and psychodrama – all the things I love and probably more I didn’t see or have yet to encounter. I experienced personal healing on a profound level and feel very excited about what possibilities may lay ahead.” – Heather Cavill Greer, Psychotherapist, Yoga Teacher & Reiki Master

“The work that Phoenix and Mike do is beyond your wildest dreams. A safe place to face that which scares you most and embrace that which empowers you and allows you to reconnect with your best self; one that you may have even forgotten. I feel so blessed that your paths have intertwined and will keep these magical souls in my heart and in my life” – Anthea Merson

“Phoenix and Mike created and held a space which allowed me to go where traditional psychotherapy has not allowed me to go. Thank you. I have immense gratitude and respect for the work you both do with both love and compassion that is so evident. I felt safe and was able to openly express my emotions without fear or judgement among my tribe. I’m filled with a deep sense of calm and leave with an open heart and a thirst for gathering in your safe presence again.

I am lost for words to describe anymore of what I feel and have felt the past 48 hours so I shall leave it at that and sit with love, connection and warmth that is overflowing. With love and gratitude.” – Angela Scott.

“What a special weekend and group of people. The care and support and nurturing space is prime for healing. I feel blessed to experience the journey of the last couple of days. Thank you Phoenix & Mike” – Jude

“Arrived into the unknown with such vulnerability. Hour-by-hour, day-by-day to have the support and nurturing to help heal in a community. Phoenix and Mike have such a gift in allowing me to just be and guide me on a my journey of transformation. I leave today feeling a huge weight has been lifted and my heart open. Thank you.” – Amanda

“Thank you for providing this healing experience – I feel I have been connected to my inner self and believing now no matter what the circumstances I have the truth and strength to stand tall. I love me and I need to take care of her, we are all connected” – Jennie

“Just wanted to let you know how refreshed I feel after the weekend…this morning I woke up feeling renewed. The weekend started off slowly for me, thinking I wasn’t going to get much out of it but that shifted on Sunday. I learnt so much about “holding sacred space” and on a personal level I am feeling a shift occur. The forming of a new neural pathway perhaps!! Anyway it’s exciting and I am very interested in the “mysterious”way you 2 work individually and together. It’s mysterious to me in a positive way and I know I will have this experience again one day. Thanks so much.” – Andrea francine

“Thank you Mike Lowe & Phoenix Arrien for another life changing weekend of healing. I feel blessed to have you both as part of my journey. You have changed my life forever & helped me to release so much pain & anger. You are both such a gift to this world & the people you work with. I can not thank you enough or recommend your workshops highly enough to anyone who wants to change their life for the better. The work you do is unique & amazing. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.” – Kim Cameron
