Weaving the Threads of Life
From the mountains to the sea

A journey of 7 days from the mountains to the sea of Sardinia to dive deep, revise and nurture the diverse threads and aspects of your existence – to be the artist of your own life.

When we were in Brazil for our Shamanic Initiation in February, we envisioned a longer retreat where people could dedicate 7 days for themselves. As we were experiencing how the medicine of Nature and the Fire Element were transforming our lives, we felt the importance to offer such a protected healing space also in our School of Life, such that people can go deeper in themselves and revise the different aspects of their lives to go into Autumn with a fresh and enriched energy.

You might be asking - “why might this retreat be for me?” After being more than 10 years in this shamanic path, we, Artejanis, know how nurturing it is when we slow down, stop for a moment and recalibrate and resynchronise our lives while being surrounded by wild nature. Accordingly, we will provide you a protected, wild and authentic space in Sardinia combined with shamanic guidance of care and love and the support of the medicine of Nature to find out what you need to grow into the next stage of your life.

So here it is, our long awaited shamanic offering for the year – a journey of 7 days in Sardinia to dive deep into the threads and diverse aspects of our lives to become more and more the Artist of your own life. In these 7 days, you will have time to profoundly touch what aspects of your life wants to be seen, transformed and nurtured. Starting in the darkness of the new moon, we will day by day weave our threads of life into the crescent moon. The energy of the element Fire will be our guide.

  • Which are the threads that are not needed anymore and which are those there to stay?
  • Which are the threads that want to be transformed or revised?
  • Which are the new threads that want to be weaved into your life?

This shamanic journey will take place in two different locations: in a magic place in the Sardinian mountains, a jewel in uncontaminated wilderness - Erbelathori - and then, a cosy and simple house to make us feel home to bring a sense of community near the cristalline waters of the Mediterranean sea. Our journey will go through the mountains and finish at the sea.

For whom 

This retreat is for everyone who feels the call towards shamanic work and has the desire to revise and transform specific aspects of life and nurture what matters to go into life with a fresh spirit and clarity.

Location 

We are honoured to held this retreat in a place where a vision and a dream have been realised. Erbelathori is a sheepfold-refuge, at 1200m, located in one of the most evocative, uncontaminated and unexplored corners of Ogliastra. Erbelathori is a space of authenticity, originality and simplicity located in one of the most unexplored faces of the Gennargentu. Erbelathori is a little oasis with its own micro-clima from where you can admire the peak of Punta La Marmora and Perda Liana.

The second part of our journey will be in a cosy house near the seaside of Orrì. Immersed in nature, the house will allow us to live in a communitarian and collaborative space where we can support each other in the process of integration.

What is included 

The package includes what is mentioned in the program above. Precisely it includes: sharing circle, shamanic work and dynamics, rituals, guidance with Isha & Joshua, meals, accommodation for 3 nights at Erbelathori and in Tortolì for 4 nights, translation Italian/English.
