The art of mastering ceremonial practice through solid space holding and energy principles is something that is not readily taught.
There are a lot of facilitator trainings to choose from, but many do not teach, or include, space holding, spiritual cleanliness and Taoist energy principles.
It is assumed people can naturally hold space, but this is actually an art that needs to be cultivated and mastered over time.
Learning how to develop a strong energetic body and mastering an ability to hold an energetic space, are two art forms requiring much more attention in the spiritual community.
One would normally have to learn these skills, and how to work with a Plant Spirit, over a period of several years, via an ongoing apprenticeship.
This retreat, will teach you the foundational principles of sacred space holding, and includes a 12 month, optional mentoring programme, to provide guidance, feedback, and supervision.
You will receive templates for circle, and ceremony work; and be instructed in key foundations for genuine space holding, whilst you learn how to work with the energy in ceremonial space.
This unique training will show you what it takes to hold sacred spaces with integrity, honour and love - key ingredients for human evolution.
We will work with the lineage plant spirits of Cacao and Blue Lotus, which are calling many people into ceremony at present, as they will assist and enhance our interaction with the spirit world.
Additional plants will be brought in to support the retreat as needed, especially some which are masters of psychic protection, and some that are also local to Australia.
You may also choose to undertake the 12 month mentoring programme in the following year, which provides an immersive and supportive network that helps and encourages you to develop your unique work.
The mentoring group is a place to receive feedback and remain tightly connected in circle and accountability.
You will also have one on one sessions with Sharon, which will help you build your own business, enliven your passion, and keep you on track with birthing your purpose.

Best Practice for Sacred Tools and Allies: the altar, the vessel, the voice, the rattles / drum, the mask, the shadow, the plant spirits, the spirit team and the elements
Creating an Interdimensional Altar – Learning how to stop others from psychically attacking you via your altar; how to ensure the altar is grounded and clear; how to invite only benevolent spirits into your space, do's and don'ts of elemental incorporation
The Vessel / Space Holder – integrity in the work; warning signs of possession, ego takeover and misuse of power.
Energetic hygiene, integrity and ethics for the space holder
Discerning the Voices – speaking from the heart, how to be a true channel for your spirit team, how to know when you are speaking from your heart vs ego
You must be willing to serve your spirit team, the planet, your community and of course yourself. Once you start spirit work, you will be called into service in ways that will surprise and delight you, but it is unsung work with which you need to be comfortable.
It will challenge your ego and place you onto the path of humility and true service that will change your life and all those you touch around you.
True shamanic work is spirit work and the vastness that this brings is undefinable. This work is for grounded people who are willing to adopt an attitude of beginner’s mind and be surprised and willing for their current paradigm of reality to be challenged.
This is an interdimensional training, with many layers, that will reveal themselves to you during the week and years to come.
Musical instruments – bring your own drums and rattles
The Mask, the Mirror and Shadow – important, but, often overlooked. You will leave this week with less masks and a deep awareness of your shadow for integration and healing.
