1 Day Immersive Retreat




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.

RETREAT Reflections 

sacred conversations 2 - wHY I REST

Recorded FEBRUARY 24th 2020       ***AVAILABLE NOW          

You know Denie Shae and I both love yoga nidra, specifically in the form of iRest®. Not coincidentally, we first met at a Level I iRest teacher training, inadvertently wound up at the same Level II training, and completed our certifications as iRest Teachers in the same year!  Along the way, we developed an abiding friendship while simultaneously both falling deeper and deeper in love with the container and possibilities offered by yoga nidra. In this Sacred Conversation we’ll explore that love and how it’s now vital to our personal sadhanas and our professional practices. Join us for the warmth and excitement ignited in our hearts by this topic!​​

Friday  -  March 20th  2020  -  3 PST         

ONLINE powered by ZOOM   

Just you and two deeply sensitive women bonding over tea and poetry. 
Join Denie Shae Martinez and Rachelle Suzanne Rice for a mini retreat into poetic delight. 
Readings and insights from the poets, artists, teachers, philosophers and practitioners that breathe life into us through the written word. All you need to do is brew your favorite cup, settle, and open through the senses of the ears and the heart.

**This event will be available after for your listening pleasure.

I recently had the honor to co-host my first retreat experience. We asked the attendees to share about there experience- here if what they had to say. 

Please describe your overall experience of your retreat. 
"I loved my experience on this retreat. It was very out of my comfort zone so I was going in with no expectations. At the end of the retreat I just wanted to stay and continue more of the meditations. I absolutely loved it and will be forever grateful for you both." 

"Magnificent! Feeling restful and restored!" 

How would you describe your experience of Yoga Nidra? 
"I loved it. I never thought I could allow myself to get to that point of relaxation. Focusing on feeling my body really helped take my focus off the thoughts that would normally run through my mind." 

"My experience changed every time we practiced. Enjoyed practicing in the group. Two-voiced was cool, as was incorporating sound." "

My experience was amazing and opened my mind to a whole other world that I want to continue in my every day life."

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.
