A New Moon for a New Beginning

A new lunar phase begins with the appearance of a new moon. The energy most associated with this phase is that of starting fresh. If you performed the full moon ceremony, your heart chakra is aligned and open for a new beginning.

 From a spiritual standpoint, the new moon is the perfect time to start a new project. Your energy from the last lunar cycle has been cleansed, giving you a spiritually clean slate.

Align with the Energy of Universal Love

 

The Magic of Sedona, New Moon Retreat, is inspired by the heart activating power of the 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki.

In the Quechua language, “Munay” means universal love. “Ki” is from the Japanese word for energy. Together, Munay-Ki means energy of love. After you go through the nine rites of the Munay-Ki, you can begin to dream the world into being… the world that we want our children’s children to inherit.

During the Retreat you will reconnect with nature and receive 9 energetic transmissions. Sandra will offer 9 activating meditations, in alignment with the 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki, that will transform your luminous energy field, heal the wounds of the past, and re-inform your DNA so you can make a powerful contribution to the world.

Tell me more about the Munay-Ki and the 9 different Rites

Munay-Ki means Energy of Universal Love

In the Quechua language, “Munay” means universal love. “Ki” is from the Japanese word for energy. Together, these words mean energy of love. 

The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a period of great transformation, and foretell of new humans appearing on the planet – persons of wisdom and power who live free of fear and abide in their eternal nature, accepting stewardship for all creation.

Based on initiatory practices of the shamans of the Andes and the Amazon, the Munay-Ki are 9 rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past… the genetic and karmic inheritance we are born with. They transform and upgrade the luminous energy field and re-inform our DNA, enabling us to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.

After you go through the nine rites of the Munay-Ki, you can begin to dream the world into being… the world that we want our children’s children to inherit.


The 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki are:

The Seers Rite
The Harmony Rite
The Bands of Power
The Healers Rite
The Day-keepers Rite
The Wisdom-keepers Rite
The Earth-keepers Rite
The Star-keepers Rite
The Creator Rite.


#1: Awaken your inner Healer – Healer’s Rite

Connects you to a lineage of luminous healers from the past to assist you in your personal transformation, awakening the healing power so that everyone you touch is blessed. We access tremendous spiritual assistance; ancient healers who help heal the wounds of the past and of our ancestors.


#2: Sacred Protection – Bands of power

During the sacred protection activation, five luminous belts of energy are woven into your energy field for your sacred protection. Each of the five bands of power call in the energy of the elements, and act as filters, breaking down any dense or negative energy that comes towards you, into one of the elements; PachaMama/Mother Earth, Water of the Mountains, Fire and The Golden Sun, Winds of Air, and the Stars, Moon and Constellations.


#3: Chakra activation – Harmony Rite

A transmission of the 7 Archetypes into the Energy centers.
SERPENT (south), JAGUAR (west), HUMMINGBIRD (north), EAGLE (east) into each of your lower Chakras, from the base to the heart.  You then receive the Archangel Keepers of the unconscious (lower) world and waking (middle) world into your 5th and 6th Chakras, and then the Archangel Protector of the super conscious (upper world) into your 7th Chakra.


#4: Seers Rite

When you receive the Seers Rite, five extra-cerebral pathways of light are installed that connect your Visual Cortex with your Third Eye and your Heart Chakra, through a crown and necklace of light. This awakens the inner-seer, and your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and spirit. 


#5: Divine Feminine Healing – Day Keepers Rite

The Day Keepers Rite connects you with a lineage of master healers from the past, present and future. This Rite helps you to heal your inner feminine (regardless of physical gender), step beyond fear in your daily life, and cultivate peace, healing and beauty within your-self.


#6: Divine Masculine Healing – Wisdom Keepers Rite

The Wisdom Keepers Rite helps you to connect to a lineage of luminous beings from the past and the future. This Rite helps you heal your relationship with your inner masculine (regardless of physical gender), step outside of linear time, and become steeped in the medicine teachings of the ancestors. It helps you to connect to your inner wisdom, and teaches wisdom and joy.


#7: Earth Keepers Rite

The Earth Keepers Rite connects you to a lineage of archangels that are guardians of our galaxy, stewards of all life on earth. This Rite strengthens your connection to the stars and the sun (our local star).

This Rite helps you to learn the ways of the Seer and to dream the world into being. The Earth Keeper holds stewardship of the entire Earth, and brings consciousness to how you interact with the world around you.


#8: Star Keepers Rite 

The Star Keepers Rite anchors you safely to the time after the great change (2012). Your physical body begins to evolve into Homo-luminous, your DNA is re-formed, and the ageing process is slowed down. This Rite downloads the codes of new consciousness and opens and connects you to all future possibilities.


#9: Creator Rite

The Creator Rite connects you to the light within yourself – the Source within – so that you can co-create your life. It awakens the creator-light within, your God/Goddess nature and Christ/Buddha consciousness, and brings the cellular realisation that Spirit is not only acting through you; it is you. The Creator Rite brings forth a sense of stewardship for all of creation, and is known as the Taitanchis rite. The word Taitanchis literally translates as ‘God.’


Origin of the Munay-Ki Rites

These rites were first given to ancient teachers by angelic beings, and now are passed on from teacher to student in the form of seeds. Once these seeds are gifted to you by another, it is up to you to grow them into fruit-bearing trees. 

These rites are not only stages of initiation, but possible steps for the evolution of humanity. As nations fight for bits of territory and battle over land, we must find the wisdom to create peace among all peoples. As our space telescopes show us images of a vast and immeasurable Universe, we must find a human story that is inclusive of the stars. And as our ability to destroy the world increases, we are called to step up to the task of assuming stewardship for all creation.

They are not ego-awards or recognition of any kind of achievement, nor do they make anyone special. On the contrary, they make one uniquely unimportant. Only then, from a position of no-ego, can we truly be of service.

The Munay-Ki are a series of nine Empowerment rites based on the initiatory practices of the Q’ero shamans of Peru, brought to the West by psychologist Alberto Villoldo founder of the Four Winds Society.

If you arrive after dark, I suggest you get a hotel near Phoenix airport and book the shuttle (or rent a car) the next morning and drive to Sedona in the daylight.

NOTE: This Retreat is a life-changing event and every step builds momentum for the next one, therefore it is important that you commit to attending ALL the sessions that Sandra is offering.

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.

How do I get from the airport to Sedona?

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!!

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.

Lodging in Sedona:
Sedona has a large variety of hotels and Airbnb options. Sandra also has a few Airbnb rooms with private bathroom and separate entrance available.

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…
