Don Hanson, the originator of TCM, comes to Living Forest twice a year to share this remarkable process of cellular healing and purification.TCM is the process of taking the body/mind through deep cellular purification and metamorphosis. This is created through sitting in a transmission of divine light, allowing this energy of universal intelligence to clear out the old cloaks of world mind and awaken the sacred nature of who we truly are.

with Patricia Hatfield and Cheryl Ulrich  

Since the beginning of time, drums and rhythm have been used to celebrate, communicate, and express all that it means to be human and open a channel to the divine connection with the rhythms of life on our planet. This drumming workshop is designed for everyone, whether you are new to music and drumming. Together we will enter into relationship with the sounds of the forest, listening deeply to the music of nature as we drum in reverence and discovery. Participants will learn to embody rhythms from around the world and discover the energy and nuances and power available as we bring those rhythms to life.

INTIMACY HEALING -SERIES with Michael Brechtel 

This retreat is a conscious exploration of the intimacy of healing. Using massage and breath work we explore the sacred nature and power of healing and vulnerability, inviting us into a deep connection, learning how to welcome and hold space for it, how to prepare and participate not only to create safety and maintain appropriate boundaries, but to enhance the depth and power of the experience. The retreat is equally for therapists & healers and anyone, who is interested in exploring intimacy in their lives.
