A Tarot + Magic Retreat
May 3rd - 5th, 2019 — in Nehalem, Oregon
The Height of Spring
Beltane, meaning “the goodly fire” and “the fire of Bel”, marks a time of revelry, joy, and creativity. During Beltane we can use the fresh energy of the earth’s life force to energize and inspire us, to discover where our passions lie and what makes us feel truly alive. Join us in our 3rd retreat as we gather to celebrate Beltane for an all-inclusive mystical retreat in the beautiful coastal forest along the Nehalem River.
Designed to refresh and recharge your inner witch, we will combine joyful ritual, tarot practice, seasonal activities, and creative “witchcrafting”. Enjoy ample free time to explore the beautiful grounds, commune with the ocean, or just relax with a cup of tea and like-minded spirits. Be nourished with farm to table organic breakfasts and dinners included with your stay. The wheel of the year is ever turning; initiate your own traditions and remember the old ways during this very special weekend.
Who Should Come?
Our Beltane retreat is ideal for women who are inspired to weave a magical experience to mark the changing of the season. This conscious celebration helps us to align with nature’s rhythms, walking in the footsteps of the ancients as well as creating new traditions to mark this vital time of year. Women in any place in their magical, spiritual journey are extended an invitation. Come with an open mind & heart, a willingness to share & learn, and help create a unique & beautiful community. Basic tarot knowledge will be helpful, as we will use tarot as a way to connect to the season and its magic. This retreat is for women identifying persons only.
Over the course of our weekend together, our mission is to align you with the fresh spring magic that is Beltane. Through guidance, ritual, and your own personal practice, may you return home feeling inspired, creative and renewed.
Suzy and Alana first joined forces in 2011 through a tarot and astrology business 'Psychic Siamese Terror'. With an early passion for the occult, they have both been studying and practicing the arts of Tarot and Astrology for more than 20 years. This knowledge is at the core of their personal and professional practices.
In addition to a love for tarot, Alana holds a deep interest and reverence for Celtic and Hellenic spiritual traditions. She studies with Mara Freeman, an internationally recognized British author and teacher of Celtic wisdom and the Western Mystery Tradition. Alana is a member of The Fellowship of Isis, based in Ireland, which honors the good in all faiths and the Divine Feminine in all of Her forms. Drawing upon her experience in education, art, dance, and music, she is honored to share her knowledge with others called to the path.
Suzy is the owner of Chariot — where she has woven together her two passions in life: being a healer and a creative. Astrology and tarot are her main tools when working with clients, but she is currently incorporating spell-casting and rituals as well in her services. She has studied with various astrologers and mediums over the past decade, and continues her path toward self understanding and enlightenment. In more recent years, her study has focused on metaphysical science, astrophysics, Wiccan spell-casting and Kundalini yoga. Her belief systems encompass this wide array of ancient and new age teachings, from the ancient yogi wisdom to the scientific discoveries of today. She is a Certified Tarot Professional, recognized by the Tarot Guild.
