EARTH GODDESS SACRED IMMERSION
In this Immersion, we venture out together, and alone, trusting our senses to receive energy and wisdom that is held in the Earth, in the air, in water, trees, animals, birds and stone, in our bones, in our bodies....in all life. All is sacred.
We start to learn to trust our hearing and our intuition. The powerful stones we will be visiting, aligned to the sun and underground water ways will help us.
The mysterious and powerful cairns and passage tombs of Newgrange, Knowth and Loughcrew, Knocknarae, Carrowmore, Carrowkeel, and the High ceremonial land of Tara are simply breathtaking in their location and majesty. They also hold the energy of celestial and terrestrial alignments and thousands of years of sacred rituals that can help shift and reorient us in the direction and awareness that is more resonant with our soul purpose.
We walk the land, climb her hills, enter the cairns and caves, breathe her air, and in that meditation, attune our fields to Her energy.
We start to see Her in all life, in Earth and in each other as well as in ourselves. This is the opening to awakening to Her-story, to seeing that spirals and patterns of co-existence are everywhere in nature rather than a straight line and a pyramid system of hierarchy. Domination is not the only strategy of power. Love and co-creation are SO powerful. The choice is ours to make when we shift our View.
PRACTICES TO ATTUNE US
SOUL MOTION™ is a non-verbal practice of entering into our bodies, becoming grounded, and navigating the energies within us and around us, letting oneself be moved by them. We will be doing this practice many mornings before venturing out. It is a practice that changed my life, as it has done with many people. Through gentle guidance, we dance, move, stand still, and are invited to “listen” to what is, through our entire sensory system……so we can truly converse with the energies that are flowing within us and around us from a centered place of our own power. We take this way of listening and presence into the Land and the Stones; with ourselves and each other. No prior movement or dance experience is necessary. Simply bring your sense of curiosity.
CIRCLE TIME: after dinner we will sit in council to share, listen and assimilate our sacred immersion experiences.
LODGING & FOOD
Creature comforts are important as we immerse ourselves in the Goddess. So yes! We are staying in amazing places throughout our journey.
Ireland is wonderful in how most food is sourced locally. All lunches and some dinners will be your own selection at restaurants. Breakfasts are included with lodging.
We will accommodate to the extent possible, various dietary requirements.

Temple House, Ballimote, Co. Sligo (5 nights)
Situated in the heart of 1000 acres, there are no words to adequately describe this beautiful property that has been the family estate for over 300 years to the Pervceval family. It has been lovingly restored and brought forward as a premier, country living retreat. Each room is different, beautifully appointed, and the dining here is exceptional with their personal chef. All breakfast & dinner at Temple House. Lunch at restaurants.
Yukiko Amaya is passionate about investigating the frontiers of consciousness, communication, embodiment and Earth based spirituality. She was 12 years old when she first “woke up”, experiencing the Reality underlying all Matter, all Life. It took her many decades to come to an understanding and acceptance of what she was shown. The deep yearning for Presence took her on powerful, depth diving journeys of uncovering, where she was guided and taught by beautiful, amazing, loving and at times fierce beings, both in physical body and not. They led her back to a passionate connection with Mother Earth, to the Goddess, to the dance of Moon, Sun and Stars felt through air, fire, water, earth and ether.
She is a certified Soul Motion® teacher, tantric yogini, psychic energy healer, shamanic practitioner and an Embodied Radiant Empowerment Coach, and has been actively teaching since the early 90’s.
She leads in-person workshops, retreats and sacred immersions internationally, alongside her online programs. Educated in Japan, Australia, the U.S.A. and France, she continues to study the energetic connections and teachings of sacred lands and dragon / ley lines around the world.
She loves to keep evolving, learning and opening to the richness of Life, and is currently in a 3 year, Priestess of Avalon, spiral training in Glastonbury U.K.
She lives in Northern Virginia with her life partner and a very fluffy cat, on a mountain a stone's throw from the Appalachian Trail.

TESTIMONIALS from previous Sacred Immersions
I loved the pace of the retreat (Sacred Immersion Glastonbury). You were able to gracefully weave each day with adventures to dive deep. This is a sacred immersion into the heart of the Mother. Thank you for this sacred offering from your heart. It changed my life.
~Rachel Jesien ~ Celtic Shaman & Yogini, Hudson Valley, NY
Sacred Immersion (to Bali) was true to it's name and surpassed my expectations. Yukiko is the real deal if you are wanting to connect deeper with yourself, the earth, and spirit. She is an amazing teacher and healer with the knowledge to guide others to heal themselves. I knew I wanted a special guide at this time in my life. I am so grateful my spirit brought me to her.
~Helena Chimielowicz ~ Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, St. Cloud, MI
YES to Sacred Immersion Glastonbury experience. The land, energy, happenstance of mystery and the Lady of Avalon were all new to me! Thrilled to witness myself and others connecting to the whole complex and thoroughly delightful experience. I have and would recommend this Immersion to my friends and students. I so have expanded....with greater appreciation of Mother Earth - truly - I walk with reverence.
~ Mji Maureen Fallis ~ Yoga teacher, Artist, Ottawa, Canada
This (Sacred Immersion Bali) was beyond anything I could ever have imagined. Yukiko is an inspirational, spiritual leader.
