GIVING TREE ESSENTIALS
BEING IN THE BODY
workshops for all bodies & abilities
Sacred Earth Retreats is a collaboration between soul sisters Denie Shae Martinez and Rachelle Suzanne Rice. Both steeped in the iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation lineage, cultivating a deep connection with self and Being is at the root of Sacred Earth Retreats.
Our mission is providing deeply embodied experiences that nourish heart and soul, body and mind. We believe that embodiment - learning how to dwell richly and wisely in this human experience - is the key to healing, connection, and meaning. Our retreats offer a blend of our shared and unique perspectives.

As Rachelle and I return from our month break from Sacred Earth Retreats we invite you to join us for another installment of Sacred Conversations. We have felt the call to share about GRIEF as it has touched us both deeply. Befriending self in times of deep sorrow can lighten the load and bring grief into the light. When we hold grief in the light of our heart we recognize grief is good, it is necessary and an undeniable part of our humanness.

BODY THERAPIES- currently unavailable
ANOINT ME abhyanga; the ultimate oil treatment
Experience therapeutic energetic bodywork. Through various assessment tools I am able to tune in and formulate an anoiting oil to balance the body, mind and heart. Anoint Me is a restorative, nourishing therapy that combines qualities of Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine principles with 5 sense therapies to create a harmonious session. A warm herbal oil blend is applied to the body in a soothing and rhythmic massage. Every oil therapy uses authentic oils and herbs which are carefully selected and customized for you. These herbal infused oils focus on detoxifying your body and eliminating the stored-up cellular waste. Health and longevity depend upon the proper nourishment, assimilation and elimination of the body tissues as well as the mind. Improper metabolism and circulation causes waste products to accumulated in the different systems of the body, such as the nervous, circulatory and muscular systems. Through proper oleation and massage of the entire body, the metabolic and enzymatic functions are stimulated to assist the body to detox, reducing stress and allowing it to work at its optimum potential.
