‘Healing the Hoop’ is a three-day retreat to honor Earth Day & Black Elk’s vision. We are living in a time of prophecy; the elders have said that we have entered the time of healing and coming together as one, & that the Oneness of all things will be understood by all humans. We will gather together on the same mountain as Black Elk’s Vision, Tava (Pikes Peak) with the intention of healing the hoop of all creation.

Please join Celinda Kaelin, Saul David Raye, Kat Tudor, Cindy Huston and others at Catamount Center in Woodland Park Colorado for a weekend of intention, community, and global healing through prayer, sacred pipe, ceremony, education, yoga, art, & nature.

What is Soul Coaching?

with John Davidson

Saturday, February 27th from Noon to 2pm

Author John Davidson will present a free two-hour introduction and demonstration of his unique fusion approach to soul coaching.

John’s technique arises out of thirty years of meditation practice and fifteen years work with Peruvian plant medicine shamanism and Q’ero mysticism integrated with more than ten years of cranial/sacral practice.

His coaching teaches soul skills:

• Shifting identity from the body, mind, and personality to the soul
• Holding soul in the heart
• Using soul to create the sense of safety in the body upon which a soulmated relationship between body and soul depends
• Soul-journeying in the timeline of the body to heal the body’s wounds
• Using the sensuality of the body to activate the skill of knowing that permits the soul to sense its purpose day to day in a rapidly changing world.

Join John to discover whether your soul resonates with his simple technique and whether this process would be a valuable addition to your client practice.
