Plant Whispering 101
Sep 30, 2017 1:00 PM-4:00 PM
Nature grounds our central nervous system; the aromatic properties of the forest are thought to calm anxiety, lighten depression, and encourage joy and relaxation. When we are at one with Nature–– when we slow down to its pace–– there is an ease not only to our own energy but also in sensing the flora’s energy and listening to their stories. Despite our region's beautiful, lush bounty, do you find yourself feeling stuck inside, caught in the city hustle, disconnected from the elements all around? Do you find yourself searching for a deeper understanding of the natural world? Do you hear the forest's call? Join Suzanne Ragan Lentz, plant whisperer and founder of Botany of the Soul, on a connective journey through Seattle’s Discovery Park as she shares her secrets to communing with plant life. With Suzanne's expert guidance, your group will learn skills to build a relationship with the surrounding forest and afterward, enjoy professionally wildcrafted herbal beverages while learning about the medicinal and practical uses of local plants. Further your connection to the Pacific Northwest's evergreen splendor. Discover Nature. Discover new, ancient connections. Discover yourself. [arrow] The Details This is a 3-hour total experience. We will gather at 1:00 PM at a designated location in Discovery Park. This wildcrafting walk is open all levels of experience, in both trail hiking and wildcrafting. Participants are encouraged to bring a snack, a bottle of water, and wide open senses. This workshop is limited to 15 plant whisperers. [arrow] About Suzanne Suzanne Ragan Lentz trained as an artist as a way to channel her psychic childhood into an acceptable career until her quest for conception led her down an unconventional path of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and energy medicine as a means to find her spirit baby. This empowering experience enabled her to birth her life’s work as an energy intuitive, shamanic herbalist, and spirit baby whisperer. In private session work, Suzanne harnesses the velocity of all-encompassing light to remove blocks from the subtle energy body so clients are able to ground in their own unique energy and clearly birth their business, career, baby, or life. Suzanne founded Botany of the Soul, a product line created to support the energetic system of the body. Whole plants in combination with minimal processing are used to create energetic salves and energy clearing products. The energetics of the plants work with the energetics of the energy system in the human body to bring your system into balance. She grew up in the woods of rural Maryland where the murmured voices of the trees and plants first made themselves known. As an adult, she moved around the country before finding her center by splitting time between the flora and fauna of Seattle and Nevada. She loves urban hiking, foraging, Orcas Island, and snuggling with her husband and dog.

Everyday Alchemy Retreat
Sep 21-24, 2017
Intuition is an overused word these days. It seems like everyone claims to be a sensitive, a mystic, an empath. Which is amazing. We are waking up to our essential connectedness to this world. But, you don't have to see dead people or predict lottery numbers to be intuitive. You also don't need animal totem websites, fancy metaphysical tools or dream dictionaries. The definition of intuition is "the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning." That's it. We wait, starving for moments of high magic to inspire us, but life is full of common enchantment waiting for our alchemists eyes to notice. Jacob Nordby Call it a gut feeling, a woman's intuition, spidey senses ... we already have the dictionary, hear the voice. We have instincts, intuitive muscle memory. We hear our inner wisdom if we pause to listen and feel. If we remember and recognize the language of our souls. The ancestral knowledge imprinted in our DNA, the star stuff that is part of who we are at a cellular level. Once you plug into that source of truth, clarity and ease begin to surface. You can see decision paths, navigate the flow of life, and operate in more integrity with who you are. You can see that magic is afoot, everywhere you look. And it can be SO MUCH FUN. [arrow] Give yourself space + time Until it starts jumping out at you like hearing your name spoken in a crowded room, intuition needs room to breathe, space to be heard and seen at the edges of your senses. And chances are you spend a lot of your time moving, thinking, going going going... not so much time or patience for quiet awareness, amiright? During the Everyday Alchemy retreat, our cozy group of 12 will move together with ease, waking and resting with the rhythms of the natural world. Rise with the sun to greet the day with a leisurely self-serve breakfast ~ consider pausing for coffee + journal on the sun porch. Flow with low-key ease in the evenings as we greet the Autumn Equinox together, heading into a time of the year when the nights are longer than days. There will be a loose structure as we gather each day to explore, create and share, but room to move and shift as our group finds its magic groove. [gallery size="large" type="slideshow" ids="4398,4397,4403,4402,4401,4405,4394,4396,4395,4399,4404,4400"] Our home for the weekend is a meticulously restored historic residence in gorgeous Manzanita, just steps from the wide sands and crashing waves of the Oregon coast. Lunches and dinners will be provided by a local caterer who takes pride in creating seasonal meals using locally sourced whole, organic products. She will personalize our meals for comfort, nourishment and our specific dietary needs ~ giving your intuition a workout can work up an appetite! (Photo Credits: Historic Reed House.) [arrow] Awaken your inner alchemist Sorry, this retreat is not about becoming a psychic, a medium, or a professional tarot card reader. It's about using intuition as a practical tool for living. In Everyday Alchemy, you will flex and stretch your intuitive muscles, strengthening the connective tissue that binds you energetically to messages all around us. This retreat is also not all shiny happy love & light ~ fact is, we digest and process messages about super-fun stuff like anger, grief, sadness and anxiety just as often as joy, love, purpose and freedom. Alchemy is about transformation. We may not turn water into wine or lead into gold (if you can, let's be friends), but we are capable of transforming information into growth and action. In Everyday Alchemy, you begin to trust your own knowing and gain confidence in your ability to use this knowing for clarity and self transformation. To practice the way of an alchemist. Here's a taste of the everyday alchemy we will practice: [caption id="attachment_4410" align="aligncenter" width="450"] dream body intuitive collage from 2015 Dream Temple retreat[/caption] Creativity. Making art is a tried and true conduit to inner knowing, and does not require you to be an "artist" to be heard. Create full-sized intuitive collage 'dream bodies' as a visual expression of what is itching to be heard and seen. Play with other art and writing techniques to tease out insight. Dreams. Dreams ~ night, day, and lucid ~ can be provocative and sometimes hilarious, smack you upside the head messages. Invite dreams to show up, practice recalling your dreams, and look at how to unpack a dream using your own soul language. [caption id="attachment_4412" align="aligncenter" width="450"] not-so-subtle "sign" in Dublin[/caption] Pattern Recognition. Also known as "it's a sign!" Like that movie where the protagonist keeps turning the radio dial and every station is playing a breakup song, nature and life have a way of showing you patterns until you get the hint. Practice active awareness of signs and synchronicity. Dial into pattern recognition and when something might hold meaning or not. (Spoiler alert: Everything can have meaning.) Trust the Vibes. Notice your body's sensory signals of knowing, whether it's a twist in your gut, a bursting heart, a feeling of expansiveness, or your skin crawling. You have built-in physical mechanisms and sense triggers ~ they will detect and tell you what is in alignment, if you pay attention. Sacred Containers. Identify and ground into personal rituals and practices, the "containers" that help you stay awake, such as daily divination, free writing and sit spots. Discover what works for you as a way to stay receptive and connected to your flow of information. [caption id="attachment_4411" align="aligncenter" width="450"] pendulum play at Camp Souldust 2017[/caption] Woo Tools. Yep, we'll still have a chaser of oracle cards, pendulums and other mystical goodies because they can be valuable messengers. However, we'll practice integrating the information with trusting what's inside. In other words, divination with a 'grain of salt.' Bottom Line: YOUR Soul Language. Look at the full spectrum of messages received + alchemical practices explored over the weekend, and distill it into the beginning of your own soul language dictionary and practices. Apply this language into specific inquiry, purposefully transforming it into not just being awake and listening, but an active tool for clarity and flow. [arrow] Be seen in all your glorious quirkiness! A huge part of any Souldust experience is being in community. This is a slumber party-style weekend together. Seriously. Time to rock those wild PJ's! Imagine 12 of the warmest, most open-hearted people you didn't know you needed in your life. Ridiculously human humans who will see you exactly as you are ~ whether it's reserved, boisterous, weird, traditional, swear-y, anxious, whatever ~ and be delighted by all of your awesome. Uncool and awkward? You're our kind of people. (And, let's be real, most of us are uncool and awkward.) The Souldust approach to Everyday Alchemy includes learning how to be nourished by deep connection and collective energy. Practice how to observe and discern with kindness and objectivity. And benefit from a circle of witnesses, practicing how to take in observations as a litmus test for what is true for you from the inside. Yes, "being seen" might be a little scary at times. But it's also soooo juicy and amazing. [arrow] What's included? Soul-Soothing Lodging. 3 nights shared or private accommodations in our Oregon beach retreat that will make you go aahhhh. Each room is charming and cozy, with the possibility of sleeping to the sound of crashing waves. 4 baths shared across the rooms. Nourishing Food. 5 catered lunches + dinners, fixings for 3 daily self-serve breakfasts, and assorted snacks and beverages. A sample dinner menu might include apple sage brined chicken thighs with rosemary roasted potatoes, green beans with shallots, a garden salad with fresh berries, and homemade rosemary sea salt focaccia. Yum.... Belly Laughs & Connection. Also an abundance of play, unexpectedly meaningful conversation, beach walks and campfires under the (hopefully) starry clear skies of a New Moon. Not included: An excess of awkward small talk. Treasure! Plenty of arts & crafts supplies will be on hand for our intuitive collages and other creative activities, planned and unplanned. Plus you will be gifted a curated mystic toolkit of goodies to play with for the weekend and beyond. [arrow] Your guide for this experience Rachel Ford Rachel is a nerd for intuition + alchemy, she loves witnessing people waking up to the messages AND waking up to ~ remembering ~ who they are and all of their magical superpowers. She has used the processes she shares daily in both personal and professional settings, including leveraging mindfulness, clarity-seeking and intuitive practices in her decades as a software executive AND as a full-on solo mom. Following the signs has led her to amazing experiences, opportunities and relationships, as well as clearing space for growth and healing. As the founder of Souldust, she is obsessed with building a community of people willing to see and be seen, listen and be heard, a community that welcomes in all walks of life with open arms and hearts. [arrow] Ready to magnify your intuitive superpowers? Space is Limited! This weekend experience has capacity for only 12 alchemists. Schedule. Arrival time is between 4 and 6 PM on Thursday, September 21. We will check out by 11 AM on Sunday, September 24, wrapping up on the beach, weather permitting. Getting There.

Astrology Crash Course
Oct 14, 2017 10:30 AM-3:30 PM
Before your spirit emerged from the ether, you created a map within the stars –– a map to take you all the way from the Earthly body you inhabit and back to your essence, your soul, your power. This map is your Astrological Birth Chart and it’s full of hints and tips for rediscovering the ancient wisdom you have at your fingertips. Your chart is one of the most empowering gifts you have ever given yourself, and learning how to decode it is the key to unlocking your unique, personal, magical toolkit. Love the sound of it all, but can’t vibe with reading through a dozen books? This hands-on, visual workshop is for you. Join astrological powerhouse Veronica Smith in a simple workshop designed to make understanding your chart easy and enjoyable. You’ll begin with fill-in-the-blank style planet, sign, and house basics, cutting and pasting your personal information into an easy to use template. Additionally, you’ll identify your North Node –– the biggest breadcrumb to lead you home to your ultimate Karmic Purpose in this life. No artistic talent or previous knowledge of astrology is required, just bring your curiosity and birth date, time and place! You'll be welcomed where you’re at, and, upon completion, will emerge with a deeper understanding of your own soul contract. This workshop is limited to 12 participants. BYO lunch, we will break halfway through to refuel. [arrow] About Veronica Veronica Smith works with individuals to help them find clarity on their life's purpose and strengthen their personal power through her astrological and empathic abilities. “It’s funny how things change. Every once in a while something will come into your life, and forever after you are changed by it. For me, this something was astrology. I feel like the knowledge and understanding I have of this medium was given to me, but the trade off was I was meant to share it. And not just with others, but also with myself. The depths of knowledge I have found from analyzing my own chart, has healed me in ways I didn’t even know were broken. There are very few things that bring me more joy than to see this same transformation in others just from hearing the information in their chart explained to them. What a gift that I get to share this powerful, healing tool with the world.” Veronica has been a professional astrologer since 2012 working with clients from all over the US and Europe. She has also been a professional artist since 2008, having shown and sold artwork in many cities around the US as well as Florence, Italy and London, England. The combination of these two loves formed into Soul Map Mandalas in 2014. Veronica also writes monthly New Moon reports for Souldust, as well as teaching at Camp Souldust.

Have you ever seen a heist movie with an expert safe-cracker? He gets out his trusty stethoscope and holds it to the door of the impenetrable safe. Everyone holds their breath while he turns the dial, one click at a time, until he hears the tumblers and pins move in perfect harmony, and the door to the safe swings open. You are an expert to the safe that is your soul, you are the one who can pick the lock. But you need to quiet yourself and listen. And you might need help remembering what to listen for - what does it sound like for those tumblers to fall into place? It’s hard to remember, isn’t it? There is a hunger for clarity and truth, to fully remember ourselves and be seen by others. Why do people enjoy Cosmo quizzes and online tests? There’s a popular website dedicated to random, unscientific tests … we complete one after another and share the results in Facebook. I’m this 80’s movie character! My ideal city is Barcelona! We are both trying to validate our perceptions of ourselves but are also curious about what might show up that we’ve forgotten. (For the record, I’m Mia from Ferris Bueller, my ideal city is Paris, my Myers Briggs is INTP, my Fascinator is Mystique, my astrological sign is Aquarius and Chinese zodiac sign is the Pig, the list goes on…) Sometimes you just need someone to look and listen and mirror back to you what’s going on. We’re all seekers and safe-crackers, but we’re looking through a window that is grimy on the outside. Let someone else rub a little dirt off the window for you. A Souldust Guide doesn’t have preconceived notions about who you are or who you should be. We listen, observe and reflect with you. We explore the dreams that may feel unreachable, and challenge perceptions that feel like they might be irrational. Through guided Souldust Exploration, we dig into recollecting who you are, at the core. Stop acting so small, you are the universe in ecstatic motion. - Rumi Rather than relying on arbitrary online tests, we harness tools for remembering, including creative activities such as intuitive collage, personal mandalas and maps, “homework” adventures as explorers of the world, and more. We borrow from tried-and-true practices such as the 8 limbs of yoga, mind mapping, chakra energetics, the Desire Map, and the Artists Way. These tools and practices are blended together for a custom coaching experience suited to where you are on your journey. On this journey, you test your intuition and get to know yourself again, setting aside distractions and judgments. It’s all about seeing and hearing that quiet voice from within, consistently. And, by doing so, you remember what you need to create alignment and live with ease, even thrive, despite the dustiness of day-to-day life. I don’t believe everyone needs a dramatic overhaul to have more ease, joy and energy. Just like extreme diets, great dramatic overhauls are usually not sustainable, and may be out of reach for those living with realities of fixed responsibility. But, there are ways we can tweak perceptions of these realities, introduce change that will create more alignment and make you go “aaah, there I am." To open the safe, clear the haze from the windows. And then, sometimes, a dramatic change is exactly what is needed. Souldust Guided Exploration can be a one-time conversation to dig into a specific area or question. It may be to provide a fresh perspective, reignite a dream you’ve been hesitating to chase, or bring clarity to an idea that’s on the cusp of breakthrough. Or it can be a series of mentored explorations, where we collaborate to rediscover your soul’s journey. Contact us below to schedule your free introductory consultation. We'll determine if we’re right for each other, and what our journey together might look like. [gravityform id="12" title="false" ajax="true" description="true" tabindex="20"]

Something magical happens when we step outside. The sun on your face, the wind in your hair. You are completely and utterly in the moment, connected to nature – your soul and mind in complete alignment. Anything is possible. Maybe you’re feeling scattered. Shaky. Ungrounded. It’s time to breathe fresh air and get back in touch with your primal instinct. In our camps, you can step away from the chaos of everyday life and find firm footing again. Our activities will ignite your senses and inspire the rituals your soul craves. In nature, you and newfound soulmates will find space. Connection. Clarity. Firmly rooted, you’ll be more in tune with your instinct than you’ve been in a long, long time.
You’ve gotten good at wearing a mask. In today’s 24/7 connected world, you layer on the armor of what others expect of you – your boss, parents, kids, significant other. You’re so used to reacting that you’re not even sure what makes you tick anymore. What if you were seen and accepted exactly as you are? Who is that person? Do you remember? How do you turn that gray numbness into brilliant technicolor? How do you feel vibrant, warm and alive again? If you’re feeling lost or out of alignment, it’s time to get creative. Your intuition is under there, like a tree bud in winter. It knows you. You just need some tools to give it a voice again. Souldust workshops engage from the heart, helping that inner voice of your true self emerge and shine.
Magic happens when we travel. We feel freedom - discovering new sights, sounds and smells. Like a child, you are never more alert and present than when everything is unfamiliar. You are awash in wonder. You feel lighter, expansive, open to possibility. In this sensory overload you find yourself. The vibrant pulse of a bustling city or the quiet majesty of a mountain ridge awakens your senses and ignites your creativity. It envelopes you, seeping into your bones and your heart. Your intuition comes into sharp focus once again. You feel connected. To this new place. To new people. To yourself. Ancient thinkers refer to this connection as anima mundi, or the soul of the world. The entire world as a collective soul and intelligence. No matter where we go or who we are with, we are all parts of this same soul. You feel this connection more profoundly when you take yourself out of your familiar day-to-day life and awaken your senses. In this way, you come back to yourself. You recognize your place in the world. And you realize that no matter where you are, you’re at home.
Have you been killing yourself over a life or business goal, but not sure why the prospect of achieving it feels heavy and hollow? Is there a restlessness — you know you’re not where you want to be but not sure where “there” even is? Are the everyday stresses and demands of “being who you’re supposed to be” tarnishing the brilliance within you? Are you even sure who “you” are anymore? The real you is in there and she’s yearning to be heard. You just need tools to hear what she has to say. If you have a specific dragon that needs slaying or a knot that needs untying so your work and life can feel more “right”, come explore your path with a Souldust Guide. Together, we'll take aspects of sensory exploration, creativity, intuitive practice, ritual and more and swirl them together to create a custom catalyst just for you. So you can make meaningful, healthier decisions. Stand comfortably firm amidst the chaos. Let’s get practical and playful to create the life you really want, and align who you are on the inside with what you experience on the outside.
