Living the Spiral: A Women’s Retreat at Aldermarsh on Whidbey Island [SOLD OUT]
September 20| $580 – $630
A Women’s Retreat at Aldermarsh on Whidbey Island
Assisted by art therapist Alyssa Griskiewicz
Wherever you are in the spiral of your life, if you still find ways to judge it as “less than perfect,” you are denying yourself permission to be exactly who you are as you are.
The enemy of the ego is unconditional acceptance, a state of no judgment, of unconditional love for all that it is and all that is not.
In this ceremonial retreat we will use ancient practices such as movement, stillness, sweat lodges, breath work, storytelling, silence, oracle journeys and art. Together, in oneness, we will spiral from one moment to the next and create a crucible for embodied intention, healing and transformation.

About the instructor: Cosetta Romani
I am ferocious in my dedication to seize the present moment. Living life as it comes allows me to teach, heal and mentor others as a living practice, weaving all the wisdom traditions in the now.
I have been practicing the healing arts of yoga, meditation, rituals, shamanism and art for over 15 years. Therefore my group classes, workshops, retreats and private sessions are a creative blend of these ancient methodologies.
I use breath work, intuitions, asana, meditation, mantras, oracles, nature, shamanic journeys, visualizations, healing touch, writing, singing, poetry and dancing to feel and connect with the Body, Mind-Heart and Spirit of each student.
This alchemy allows me to support the growth and transformation of those who come my way, as I invite them to shift inward, toward the center of their longings, in order to access and express their deepest potentials.
Registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500). I apprenticed for five years under the guidance of knowledgeable yoga teacher, Lee Atwell, whose teachings have been influenced by her guru Baba Hari Dass. I undertook yoga-training intensives from Eric Schiffman, David Saul Raye, Mark Whitwell, Sarah Powers, Cindy Lee, Sean Corn, Shari Friedrichsen, Rod Stryker, Sally Kempton. I have been in an ongoing training since 2007 with my most inspirational and empowering teacher, Shiva Rea, and her lineage of Yoga Prana Flow.
The Sacred Path of the Warrior in the Shambhala Tradition, as taught by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, is the core foundation of my meditation practice, which is in constant evolution.
I completed a five-year mentorship with Sundust Oracle Institute under the compassionate guidance of medicine woman Char Sundust. Currently studying with renowned teachers and shamans Christina Pratt and Sandra Ingerman.
In the last five years I have also embarked upon a deep healing in the ancient path of the vegetalismo. Currently learning under the guidance of Shipibo shaman Ricardo Amaringo. In Shamanic Cultures plants and trees are considered the real university and pharmacy available to us. I travel to South America on a regular basis.
I am also a creative dakini, who has been studying and practicing the art of ikebana (flower arrangements) from the Sogetzu school. I find a daily delight in the creation of altars and sacred space. I write poetry and dance to celebrate the privilege of being human.
