Sandra’s Signature Sessions

sexual de-armouring

Sexual Armour is an instinctual survival mechanism. The Fight/Flight/Freeze Contraction causes trauma to get stuck on a deep cell level inside the tissue of the body. The Sexual Armour (shields and walls) that protects old wounds, will trigger patterns of fear, when under pressure, blocking any attempt you make to create long-lasting joyful life experiences.  

Most of the Sexual Armour is found in the Sexual reproductive system, the genitals and around the heart, but every energy center (also know as Chakras) are vulnerable to the effect of this prolonged state of contraction. Sexual Armour can show up in the body as blockages and discomfort in the throat (communication center) and in the Solar Plexus (center of digestive system and stomach and lower back area) to name but a few.

With Sexual de-armouring, you liberate yourself from this state of contraction and in doing so your whole being transforms and becomes magnetic. It activates a new level of Self love and Self respect that allows you to set healthy boundaries and attract more loving relationships into your reality. You will become more playful, sensitive and present and experiencing more joy and pleasure in everything you do!

Sexual De-Armouring is a powerful energetic healing technique that specifically targets pain and trauma that is stuck deep inside the tissue of the body. In most cases this can be traced back to early childhood, all the way up to the present time and sometimes even go back lifetimes!

Imagine Sexual Armour as layers of protection or shields that cause the body to contract, this contraction stops the natural flow of health, vitality and sexual energy. This contraction is usually found in the lower energy centers and pelvic area. In the female body this trauma would be inside the yoni, the clitoris, the G-spot, the Cervix, the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, and the entire sexual reproductive system.  In the male body the trauma is inside the scrotum, testes, spermatic ducts, sex glands, lingam and the entire sexual reproductive system. Sexual trauma/contraction can also be found in other energy centers, like your solar plexus, heart and throat.

The Sexual De-Armouring techniques are designed to awaken the natural flow of energy in your body with the intention to remove contraction that is stored deep in the tissue of your body and the energy field around it. Sexual De-Armouring is a safe and transformative process that will free you on all levels of your being and during the session we focus on freeing all the energy centers, not only the lower chakras.

When you are Sexually de-armoured you are more in tune with your body and better equipped to read people’s energy and recognise red flags. You will be able to feel what their intentions are, instead of listening to the words they say. By moving into this type of listening, listening from the heart in connection to your lower energy centers, your gut feeling so to speak, you can start making better choices that will assist and support you in attracting more loving relationships. Some situations or people are just more toxic than others and by raising your awareness you will become more aware of this energy and start using your discernment to make better choices that are in alignment with your true heart’s desire.

Ancestral Healing

This Trans-Generational & Ancestral healing will be a deep guided Galactic Shamanic Journey where you can connect with your Ancestral lineage all the way back to the source of Creation.

Using Time Line re-imprinting & Shamanic Womb Constellation techniques + specific breath-work to activate deep healing and clearing on both your mother and father’s side of the family tree (even if you never met your birth parents). During this session you get to reposition yourself into your rightful place in the family set up.

This is your opportunity to honor your Divine appointment and end any and all limiting Soul Contracts and Karmic agreements that are active in your Ancestral lineage. YOU have the power to break these limiting beliefs, and in the process heal all woundedness, shame and guilt, as you open yourself up to receive the gifts of Unconditional Love and Wisdom on the deepest Soul-level.

Experience the tremendous feeling of freedom and free choice that will be activated and anchored into your consciousness after clearing the Generational & Ancestral wounds.  The time is NOW for you to receive the medicine and blessings from the highest Soul level of your ancestral lineage.

Soul re-Birthing

Returning to a time before conception, connecting to your infinite Self before the veiling. Fully remembering your Soul Purpose and freed of anxiety and resistance towards your human experience. Inside your mother’s womb we re-program your birthing experience. Re-connecting you to the vital life-force inside the Umbilical cord & Placenta, healing the first wound of separation, birthing a new version of you into being!

Breathwork

Breathwork is a powerful process of healing and transformation. It deeply supports the clearing away of old energies, patterns, conditioning, negative thoughts and emotions and opens the doors wide for new life and greater consciousness.

Breathwork helps to activate the subconscious mind and bring awareness and insights not easily accessed through traditional therapy. Breath opens the energy channels in the body and allows what we have been holding onto to surface and be released. This may be suppressed emotional material, physical blocks in the body, old beliefs structures and identifications, old memories, fight/flight/freeze patterns, and addictions.

Sandra uses different breathwork techniques and one of her favorite is the Clarity Breathwork Technique, formerly know as Rebirthing.

.

.

 

 

Join us on a journey that will boost your confidence, ignite your Sensuality, spark your creative power, elevate your belief in possibility, inspire you to become the most empowered version of yourself, and give you the freedom to truly love yourself in a safe and high vibe group setting in the middle of the Sedona Vortex.

 

Go beyond what you think is possible! 

Sandra’s life-changing retreat is designed to help you clear blockages in your lower Chakras and release any trauma or disharmony linked to your conception, your birth story, your childhood and your Sexual experiences.

The new format, which has evolved out of the last 4 years of Shakti Workshops, is designed to truly birth a new version of yourself into BEING. Experience for yourself how you can master your Sexual energy, your state of being, your environment, and your destiny from a heart-centered space.

a thousand thank you’s to Sandra Rolus for being the facilitator of this experience . For making us feel so truly loved, supported and safe. I can not fully express my gratitude for her work in words, but it was transformational and life changing. Sharing sacred space with a group of women for 5 days and feeling the power of authentic sisterhood is one of the most amazing experiences. We shared our life stories, we held space for each other to be vulnerable, to cry, to yell, to be fully heard and accepted. That is powerful medicine. Watching each other transform, peel off layers of old programming and dysfunction, to reveal the beautiful authenticity in us all was an honor.

I feel such a sense of gratitude for my experience at the Shakti retreat…my time in Sedona has forever changed my life. Thank you Sandra for being a beacon of light to call us all back to our ourselves, to help us remember who we truly are, and help us remember the gifts of being a woman.

You were born as an essential unique piece of humanity’s big puzzle picture. Without you the big picture is not complete. No one puzzle piece is any more or less than another.  The true you is pure joy, excitement and love. The true you is empowered creative and playful regardless of circumstances. You came to Earth with a specific theme. It is your life’s purpose and journey to find what that is and express it the best you can.  When you freely and fully express yourself you synchronistically attract the pieces that fit with you and help to create a complete puzzle picture that fits and flows perfectly together.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Shakti?

Shakti is your primal life-force energy…Shakti is raw, pulsating, joyful energy.

If you have experienced any trauma, big or small, your flow of Shakti is going to be affected. During our 5 days together we clear out the imprints and frozen energy to optimize the flow of life-force energy inside of you.

Imagine anything that has Shakti is alive, luminous and desirable…it is the essence of vibrant health, feeling good in your own skin and feeling that your life has meaning and value.

When you have Shakti you have the energy to engage with life in meaningful ways. Shakti is the foundation for a conscious life and from this essence comes forth wisdom, beauty, playful energy, spaciousness, ability, creativity, and power.

Shakti empowers you to seek growth and change and to find purpose and fulfilment in everyday life.
When Shakti is directed inwards it empowers you to raise your consciousness, to experience yourself as part of something greater. Ultimately, Shakti is the fuel that powers personal growth and expansion of consciousness…

Join me on this journey to re-set and re-ignite the spark within that is your birth right!!!

How do I best prepare for this retreat?

A few weeks before, Sandra will send you a detailed email with what to bring and how to best prepare for the upcoming retreat. 

What are the circle principles and rules of conduct during the retreat?

Circle Principles & Rules of Conduct

A circle is the oldest form of gathering for human beings. Assembling this way feeds a primal need and raises the vibration of the planet! Everyone is equal in a circle so sharing and inclusion surface more readily.

I am BEYOND excited about our circle, which I will also refer to as our sacred Container. Because This is a time where you can feel safe and nourished by the energy of the group container, to let go what is holding you back and feel the energy of Sandra and the group fuelling your new vision of the future and nourishing time lines.  The principles we will practice here will benefit you on a personal level and any of your present and future group endeavours.

 

Our Circle Principles serve as an understanding and agreement of intention and rules of conduct:

 

  • State of Being: Circumstances don’t matter, our reaction to the circumstances is what matters. We promise to be the guardian of our state of being and place this principle of holding a high frequency at the top of the list. 

 

  • Inner Wisdom:  We understand that we are Infinite Beings having a human experience and that every “experience” is a catalyst for us to grow, learn and evolve. The connection to our Future self and Higher self is the key to Self-realization, balance, harmony and oneness.

 

  • Respect: We promise to respect the sacred container/circle principles. We understand and accept that the online teaching platform offered by Sandra is a sacred place, and we take full responsibility to show up with an open heart and open mind.

 

  • Communication: We promise to cultivate and improve our loving communication skills inside and outside the circle. We will use the talking stick principle and only speak from direct experience – the “I” perspective. We refrain from speaking about “you” and actively control the human habit of reacting, recapitulating, cross-sharing & trying to rescue others. We are in full agreement that if any triggers, issues or problems arise…this will be communicated in private with Sandra. This will enhance the feeling of safety for all involved.

 

  • Safety: . We promise to protect each other’s right to anonymity and privacy. We promise full confidentiality and refrain from talking, sharing or discussing any information, outside the group container. This will encourage us all to drop our armour, walls and shield and step safely in a more open-hearted, vulnerable state of being. 

 

  • Compassion: We actively open our hearts to everyone present, including ourselves. We practice non-judgment and non-infringement towards others. We celebrate all of the diverse ways of existence.

 

  • Courage: We promise to be fully disclosed and transparent about our own blockages in order to show up authentically and learn from each other

 

  • Silence: We consciously allow space for silence. We understand that so much of the magic happens within these pristine moments of silence.

 

  • Diversity & Inclusion: We acknowledge all stories as the loving expressions of our shared humanity. We include all beliefs, all paths, all loving practices, and all people. We also honor ourselves with a welcoming heart.

 

  • Simplicity: We value authenticity, determination, kindness, courtesy, playfulness, support, generosity, We appreciate our tears and laughter and encourage the simple blessings that shift and enhance the quality of our lives.

Flying to Sedona

If you need to fly in a day earlier to make it work, there are 2 options:
  1. book a hotel near Phoenix airport and book the shuttle (or rent a car) for the next morning
  2. Book an extra night in Sedona at Sandra’s Airbnb

RECOMMENDED
If you have time and your budget allows it, please consider extending your stay. You can come a few days early and stay a few days longer to enjoy the beauty of Sedona and perhaps explore more of Arizona.

How do I get from the airport to Sedona?

  • Car Rental. Renting a car is the best way to get from the airport to us. By the time you pay for the shuttle it is not that much more to rent a car. If you decide to rent a car, let Sandra know if you are willing to share your ride with one or more of the other participants. Carpooling is a change to recover some of your rental costs, because you will get $25/one way (per person) for the ride share, making this a win-win for everybody!!
  • Transfer from Airport by Shuttle.  You have 2 options: Book with Ace Shuttle, they will drop you at any address (home or hotel) Price = $50 one way. Another option is to book the Groome Shuttle from Phoenix to Sedona, with drop off locations at one of the hotels in Sedona or a home/retreat address, Price ranges between $50-$65 one way

I want to come earlier and/or stay longer in the area, what are the must see's and must do's?

Explore Sedona and the beauty of Arizona:

Sedona is a wonderful destination, and you might want to come early before the retreat starts or stay a few days after the retreat is over. There are many trails and landmark hikes that will take your breath away. I highly recommend you do some research prior to you booking your flights.

My personal favourites

  • Cathedral Rock
  • Bell Rock
  • West Fork Trail
  • Fay Canyon
  • Boynton Canyon
  • Slide Rock
  • Devil’s Bridge
  • Shaman’s Cave, etc…
  • also Google “Fossil Creek” (1 hour drive from Sedona), this enchanting nature spot has waterfalls and a very unique energy (note: reservation required) 

Getting around in Sedona:
The must see areas of Sedona are spread out with several miles between them and you will need transportation (rental car, Uber or Lyft) to get to the hiking sites, go to the store and/or restaurants.

Did you know that Sedona is only 3 to 4 hours from the Grand Canyon, another hidden gem is the beauty of Antilope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend and Lake Powell, to name but a few. If you wish to explore the greater area you won’t be dissappointed, Arizona is breathtakenly beautiful…
