Living the Spiral: Shamanism, Yoga & Art Women’s Retreat at Aldermarsh on Whidbey
May 27, 2022| $750
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.
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.
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.
This is a healing retreat crafted to allow you to dive deep within yourself while opening to work in community.
The schedule is rich and engaging. It does entail a certain amount of preparation.
Dates: May 27th -29th, 2022
Price: $750. Includes 3 days, 2 nights lodging & amenities, 6 delicious meals based on Ayurvedic principles. All teachings, ceremonies, rituals and art supplies.

“What I loved so much about this retreat was how different it was than the first one. My heart was overflowing with gratitude even before arriving on the land, knowing that I had made the commitment for time and that Cosetta would be holding space to invest in myself in this way. It was a big carrot for me getting through a busy few months. What struck me deeply during this retreat was the responsibility and desire I have to myself and to those around me to lean into my own goddess-ness. Recognizing the awakening of each sister goddess around me, I left asking myself how I need to live differently to continue to foster this in myself and in others. And of course, the laughter, the tears, the connection, healing and oh my goodness, the food. I left feeling refreshed and fulfilled. When I got my home, my husband said how calm I was. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow in these new ways. THANK YOU COSETTA!” – Colleen Coleman
“As a person looking to deepen my spiritual practice, I have attended many several retreats and workshops. There was something uniquely different about this experience, whose lingering effects keep me connected to my inner world even though I’m back in the hustle of work.
Cosetta creates a safe space to drop into ceremony without feeling uncomfortable. Her candor, her knowledge and her ability to be vulnerable create instant trust. I loved the flow of the experience in terms of design and I loved being guided into shamanic practice through breath, song, sweat lodge, movement, ritual, art and food. From the very first moment I experienced Cosetta at Breath Medicine Ceremony, I knew she was somebody I could trust to guide me deeper into myself” – Genessa Krasnow, CEO – Revel Wolf Collective
“I feel so very blessed to have been a part of Cosetta’s Divination Retreat with Yoga, Shamanism and Art. The retreat nourished and invigorated my entire being. There was so much for my heart, my mind, and my body to process. Cosetta created a beautiful and powerful sense of sisterhood, like nothing I have ever experienced before. She is powerful and radiant and intuitive and honest. It was amazing to experience her authentic desire to share her gifts and nourish her sisters. The seeds that have been planted in my heart continue to grow.” – Traci Closson
