woodland healing retreat


How would you like to go on you own private retreat in nature with your very own Shamanic practitioner who can teach you how to talk to the Nature Spirits, Animal Spirits, Stone People (stones) and the Standing Ones (trees) and give you sound advice on your questions while mentoring you too?

I will lead you on your own healing retreat at a beautiful sanctuary located in downtown Lexington, KY.

After a very stressful time in my life, I decided it was time to get back to my Shamanic practice that I love and long neglected and ventured out to McConnell Springs after not visiting for over a year. I actually cried because I realized that I missed my ‘home’ and all my nature friends and I started going out every morning that I possibly could. It was so fulfilling and so relaxing when I was quiet and still enough to listen….to listen to the stillness and the messages from the Standing Ones, the birds, the wind, the water. It was so freeing! It was healing so much to my body because I needed the exercise…the centering, my mind because I was thinking way too much and not really ‘seeing from my heart’ as I learned in my Shamanic training and my soul in a way that nothing else could.

I started this service because of how these walks are healing to me. Each and every time I go, I feel like I have gained a little piece of myself back. I felt like this can be so beneficial to others who might be in the same boat I was; stressed and going nowhere. I can just smell that wonderful, clear air now!

For your Retreat, we will meet early in the morning or evening for this approximately 2 1/2-3 hour healing session. I find that at those times the temperatures are more comfortable and the park is not as busy. Although, weather permitting, I can meet you anytime during the day! We will meet at the park entrance and then sit down to talk and get to know each other. I will pull some tarot or oracle cards to clarify what we need to focus on and open your Akashic Records so that your Masters, Teachers and Loved Ones travel with us on your healing quest.

The next step will be walking the trails in the park. These trails are very accessible and easy to walk. Some trails are dirt and mulch and some are concrete and have several benches to stop and chat and relax. I will stop and convene with Nature Spirits as they talk to me and give me messages about you and even answer your questions.

We can even experiment with you as the one talking and listening to the Nature Spirits. Don’t worry, I will teach you how!

If you are needing some advice about your spiritual gifts, as many are lately, we can discuss how to develop and use them.

We will go early in the morning or in the evening and do an approximate 2- mile walk as we talk to all the Spirits available to us. While you journal or meditate, I can do a Journey for you at a beautiful spring or perhaps by the 250- year-old Bur Oak, or maybe the soothing pond.

I will walk in front of you, behind you or beside you, supporting you along this healing re.

We can talk about:

  • your life purpose

  • Your chakras and how to heal them in nature.

  • relationships

  • what tools you can develop if you want to be a healer

  • dream interpretation

  • how to move out of the past or get unstuck so you can move forward

    Or maybe you just want a mentor or advice on how to develop your intuition. Anything really! It’s your time.

That is what the Woodland Healing Retreat is all about!


“I found answers I didn’t know I needed! So much love from the forest & its inhabitants as well.”

“ ...benefits were learning what I need to work on, realizing just how much life there is in nature & not just the obvious, seeing through the eyes of the forest is something I didn’t expect.”

“It’s so important to experience nature this way & get lessons/messages from your Record Keepers. ”

“Vickie really takes her time in order for you to get all you need from this experience”
