Join Erin Newman on this amazing four days shamanic retreat. You’ll be held by the sacred space of ancient Germanic tribes, and learning the secrets of the ancient seers through shamanic journeying. Discover your unique answers to all of the big questions in your life with 14 other amazing women, in this beautiful and unique space.

During the retreat, you are entirely at peace. You will be connecting with a group of aligned and soulful women, all on the path to discover their true goddess nature. You're able to receive insights from your higher self and inner goddess and feel loved and supported by her as you claim your big magic in the world. You're surrounded by the natural beauty of the beautiful parks of central Germany (near Kassel), nourished with delicious food, and fully supported to create the path to your dreams.

What will you receive from the Finding Freya retreat?

  • A clear, goddess-inspired plan for your soul's path
  • Understanding of the Norse goddess Freya and her unique magic
  • Shamanic journeying tools for deep exploration with your guides
  • A Shamanic initiation to your personal goddess lineage

This is your initiation to your Goddess lineage

Through shamanic journeys, you will be initiated into your own unique goddess lineage and discover (or deepen) your connection to the powerful beings who call you by name and know you to be one of their own, culminating in a beautiful ceremony to crown you as a goddess! While you will be focused specifically on the Norse lineages of goddesses, Erin Newman welcome all who are wanting to explore the path of the goddesses.

Whether you feel called to Freya, Astarte, Artemis, Diana, Oshun, Hecate, Mary of Magdalene, Isis, Brigid, Epona, or any other goddess, you will understand how to access the other realms at any time, in order to connect with these powerful beings and receive healing, wisdom, guidance, and clarity. Be initiated into the beauty, magic, and deep sacred work of the goddess, so that you can create your most amazing year yet.

What is shamanism? What is shamanic work?

Shamanism is an ancient path of discovering answers, healing, and clarity by entering into space where it is possible to hear from guides, angels, power animals, and helping spirits. These beings go by many different names in many cultures, and we will enter into a safe, sacred and protected space in which you can open ourselves to the answers that they can provide.

Through the use of a simple drum beat, you will create a theta-wave trance state (similar to a state right before sleep) , and from there enter into a Shamanic journey. For Westerners, this can seem a little awkward and strange at first. Your retreat facilitators are experts in holding space for those new to Shamanic journeying work, as well as being a support to those who need deeper direction.

This is for you if you

  • Want more understanding of the powerful role of woman in the ancient mysteries
  • Are craving more connection to other powerful women
  • Know yourself to be an upholder of the sacredness of all life
  • Are a defender of nature and all beings who walk this earth
  • Excited to be in a tribe of other goddess women of all lineages, ages, and backgrounds

What will you actually do?

You will be journeying, sharing, journaling, and learning about the Norse lineage of shamanism. You will have plenty of time for community and connection, as well as a one day trip to the Teutoburg Forest, to perform a goddess ceremony at the site of an ancient and powerful group of stones called the Externsteine.

A message from Freya

The goddess is calling from within you. Be still, and listen to her messages of guidance, insights, and wisdom. She brings you the sage knowledge of the ancient ones, encoded in your very DNA. You are all part of the ancient lineage of travelers, those who were sent to her from other realms, other galaxies, and other dimensions, to see this new earth and take up the mantles of priestess, healer, and wisdom-keepers for your tribes.

In this modern world you have created, you need only listen in to your beautiful heart to once again hear the songs of the heavens. You can be guided there, to this space of ancient knowing, with the simple song of allowing. Allow this time to your space for personal healing, for expansion, for beautiful alignment on all levels.

Know that you are the chosen ones, those who are being called to this work, and that you are seen and known by Freya. Step into the light. Walk with Freya for a moment or for a lifetime. Welcome, my child. Welcome.
