Shamanic Retreats

Small Group Shamanic Spirit Healing Retreat to Connect with Your Higher Self

"Tami’s inherent gift for guiding others to connect with their own deep wisdom and inner power blends the invisible world with the visible. Her Work enables us to transports into the mystical and magical realms residing within all of us." 

- Kevin Mallory

This Shamanic Retreat is limited to small group interactions so we can provide an intimate experience in order to help you connect and feel safe on this journey of the soul. You will gather with other like-minded individuals for a long weekend that you will hold dear to your heart for a long time. Learn how to unwind, let go, and recreate a new blueprint for your life.  Give yourself the gift that will affect you and all of your relationships in a healthy and positive way.  

When we go to our wild places - It’s there we find our true nature, who we came here to be.

Many of the Retreats I offer are in Nature because we all know how good being in nature can make us feel. 

The sounds of the trees, the sunlight playing through the leaves, the fresh clean air, the flow of the river - these things give us comfort.

Nature eases our stress and worry, help us relax and to think more clearly.

Being in nature can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us.

We know this deep in our bones. It's like an intuition, or an instinct, a feeling that is sometimes hard to describe. It's about a world beyond the job we do in life to pay our bills. It's the place we connect with self. 

This Shamanic Retreat is for those of you who want to:

  • Re-connect with Nature, the Elements, and your Soul. 
  • Focus specifically on the tools necessary to effectively deal with your emotions in healthy way and gain perspective on your life’s challenges.
  • Open your heart space and release the past, and embrace passion, tranquility, and self-worthiness as you step forward on your journey!  
  • Let something within you die so you can live the authentic YOU.
  • Recapitulation with self, others, and those who have crossed over.
  • Connect with Ancestors
  • As you become more attuned and aligned with your soul, your attention naturally turns to the question of "how can I live according to my highest purpose and do so with joy and passion?" 
  • In this retreat you will begin to envision your life moving forward and will devise a “plan” to get there. 

With the help of Nature, the Element, the Sacred Direction, the Earth and Sky, the Archetypes, the Archangels, Personal Guides, Sacred Fire, the Spirit of the Drum and Rattle, and our Soul, we will step into the story of our lives, release what no longer serves us, the old energy that is holding and binding us from shining our amazing light and sharing our gifts and into a place of inner stillness where we begin to design a new blueprint for who we are now and who we are becoming.

This Shamanic Retreat is an experience of re-awakening your Soul. Awakening is not a process of building ourselves up but a process of letting go. A process of relaxing in the middle... full of potential. Full of possibilities. Full of new ways of seeing, feeling, and thinking - with no guarantee of what will happen next = Open Mind & Heart. 

It's here that we return to nature and the true nature of ourselves and who we came here to be. When we step off grid, we step into the old ways. 

It's here we begin to use ancient practices of energy healing to bring about wholeness for self and all those around us.

This Shamanic Retreat gives you a chance to dip your toes into the world of the shaman, learning to see the world through new eyes, with wonder, and curiosity. 

We will step into places where you'll learn how to utilize breath, journey work, and  letting go of yesterday's energy that holds and binds you from being the best version of you. We will return with the personal and powerful medicine of your soul, power animal, and positive affirmation to enrich your life and to provide balance, centering, while cultivating and experiencing the richness of self and others.

You will take away with you some of the energetic healing tools that shamans use in order to stay healthy in mind, body and spirit. These tools are designed to help you go deep within yourself to find your own answers and invite in the empowerment we all deserve. 

  • Spirit Catcher and Sand Painting the Story of your Life, using the sacred direction and the archetypes of Serpent, Jaguar, Hummingbird, and Eagle.
  • Learn about and create your own personal ceremony wherever you are in life.  What do you need right now in your life? How will you go about creating it? 

Each day is rich in ceremony, healing, and initiations where you will receive healing rites of the Munay Ki that will help you to step outside of your everyday world, raise your energetic vibration and learn what it means to dream your world into being. 

What you will discover this long weekend comes from a long lineage and has been handed down by the Andean Shamans of the Q’ero tradition of Peru; keepers of an ancient body of wisdom, along with the practices of the Western Core Shamanism, and other ancient healing methods.

I am honored to share some of these very practical and beautiful healing tools that you will be able to use in your everyday life to keep your body healthy, your mind free of the old stories that no longer serve you, and to set your soul free to grow into who you are becoming. 


Let’s drum, rattle, and connect with nature.

Let’s reconnect with the lost parts of our Soul and bring in a new blueprint for our life.

Let’s hold Sacred space together.

Let's explore our gifts we've come to share with the world.

Let's create new medicine for our Soul's Earth walk.

 The Shamanic Retreat with Tami & John benefited tremendously. It’s helped me take some really challenging steps forward, which have been deeply healing, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Working with a small, intimate and open group of like-minded people provided a very safe and loving space for this important inner work, allowing us to connect and support one another without fear or judgment. Expect the unexpected, and welcome it into your heart!

Stan Kerry

Just back from the most incredibly enlightening 3-day retreat on the Mattawmakeag River.
Feeling so blessed to have had the privilege to be in the company of so many beautiful souls, and for us all to journey together, with such an inspiring teacher, Tami Rogers.
I highly recommend Tami’s retreats, if you are seeking something more from within yourself, you would not find a more experienced, patient, compassionate, light teacher, to take you deeper within, to enable you to discover who you really are!
Thank you never seems quite enough, but thank you Tami from deep within my heart. And a huge thank you also to the beautiful Souls who helped during the retreat. 

Natalie Mennington

I have been working with Tami for several years, and I have discovered so much about myself, made peace with myself and others and seen the world from a truly beautiful perspective. I am the most grounded and happiest that I have ever known myself to be. My Journey has been raw and full of emotion at times, but as the layers of trauma were released, through the support and guidance of Tami the true ME has begun to emerge.
Thank you!
Love and Light 

Hannah Lawton

A truly, brilliant weekend, thank you so much Tami and John for your wonderful teachings, guidance, wisdom, care, humor and delicious meals.  And thank you for taking such good care of us all.

Lou Lockmann

I didn’t know what to expect from this retreat, it just felt like the right thing for me. It’s brought insights along the way, but the enabling of deeply rooted emotional shifts have been what has helped me most, I think. (So far…)
The journey work we learned has been a wonderful tool in my life.  I loved being part of the small group, to be able to share and feel supported and also to hear other’s experiences – plus the energy created was amazing!

Mattawamkeag River, Maine

Drift back 5 miles into the wilderness along the scenic Mattawamkeag River where you enter into a life style beyond the grid, slowing down and treasuring each moment.

Our center is a 12 acre off-grid haven that is nestled in the quiet town of Mattawamkeag, on the Mattawamkeag River, in Northern Maine. 

It's a Sweet Lifestyle Beyond the Grid

Where you can slow down and treasure each moment of this  "In the woods and on the water" Shamanic Retreat.

The energy of the land is native where tribes through Maine's history gathered, shared meals, stories, healing, and more. 

Surrounded by 100’s of wilderness acres where explorers of the mid-1800’s, such as young Teddy Roosevelt, Henry David Thoreau, and Percival Baxter came in search of solitude, a glimpse the wilds of Maine and ultimately, themselves.

"Tami and John provide outstanding service, impeccable meals, great off-grid glamping cabins, and a kind hospitality to explorers from all over." J. Lancaster

"When I hear "Off-Grid" I think - Survival... Boy, I sure was wrong on this one. Tami's retreats are nothing but pure love and taking care of details to ensure the comfort of each of us, as well as the whole group. Tons of food, warmth, and laughter. All of my needs were meant - physically, emotionally, and definitely Spiritually. I left this retreat with so more more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you!"  Kelly B.
