“Everything in the universe begins with intention.” ~ Deepak Chopra

There are moments in our lives where we need to pause and reflect on what we hold sacred in our lives. Take a journey to awaken your dreams through this intentional retreat experience. Facilitators Maureen Priest and Debra Hess model and instruct the Pillars of Forrest Yoga as taught by Ana Forrest!  Individually Maureen and Debra have passionately embraced how this training, coupled with their own Intentions, have provided the tools and practice to deliberately create what is close to their heart!  Together they bring a combined experience that allows a safe, dynamic, shifting and opening to those who are ready!!

The Power of Intention is a twofold offering:
Montana Retreat - Yoga & Shamanism1) In The Wider Circle, our basic package, we ALL share together meditation, All Levels Yoga, Sweat Lodge, and a choosing from other fun, stress-reducing offerings, in addition to your own guidance to be in Nature as much and as often as you are called!
2) The Inner Circle, our Inner Vision Quest, is crafted to support the Intention to use deeper modalities of, Silence, Spiritually enhanced physical therapeutics, and the Power of Nature, in a concentrated three day event, within the 8 day container of community interaction and support. The deeper commitment provides the student with incredible support to shift and clear and discern life altering choices that rise to the surface when we retreat with the Power of Intention.

For those joining us in the Inner Circle, Debra will facilitate you through an Inner Vision Quest — a Deep Dive on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday that will encourage Silence, three glorious days of Body Work each day, and Deep Dive Shamanic Practices.

We will provide the tools allowing you to be in the receiving mode of the wisdom and guidance that is always there. The deeper we go, the more we let go of the distractions and momentum of our conditioning and create a Readiness Within that allows the answers to come. Native practices of Shamanism are just that…conditions that allow for Direct Revelation.
