Learn healing Tools of the Shaman. Sustainable and Effective Energy Healing Practices for Your Energy Body; creating a Stronger and more Empowering Life
Nature is the True Healer... Ancient Medicine men and Women relied on Nature to be the most powerful aspect of healing.
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 restores our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, and refreshes 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 who want to:
You will learn to step into your own Inner Chaos, Inner Healing, and Inner Stillness - where possibilities that might not have presented themselves before come forth...
The Art of working with Sacred Directions for Empowerment
The Art of Shamanic Journeying
The Art of Shamanic Re-Birthing is a ceremony of physical remembrance. Where we come to the Earth Mother in the deepest honoring and with respect. Re-birthing - leaving the past behind, so we are free to dream something more life enrichening. As we re-connect with the Earth Mother, we shed our past, so we can step into our future with Newness. We are reborn every day with the rising Sun. With re-birthing we come into and understanding that we have a choice to bring our past with us into the new day, or to live each day as if it were a new day to create something more whole, for self, our children, and their children.
It's here in this empowering Shamanic Retreat that we return to nature, and the true nature of ourselves.
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 through the heart with new eyes, with wonder, and curiosity.

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

Professional and Expert Lead
So much gratitude. I am ready to follow a new path - no matter where it leads. I don't think I would have been able to do that if I hadn't attended this Retreat. I wouldn't even know where to look. I am ever so grateful. I totally enjoyed the whole experience. It was life altering and I feel I really released so much "stuff" I needed to leave behind. I enjoyed the being outdoors, the river, which was so beautiful, the fog... it spoke to me about coming home to self. I am who I am, and I am all that I need. The rest is a bonus. I am seeing the world through different eyes.
My experience with Tami and John was AMAZING! The food was amazing and plentiful. The lodging was also great. The bed was so comfy.
Tami, John, and Libby I am so grateful to have met you and to be part of your lives. The land is so comforting and welcoming. The Shamanic Retreat weekend has been life changing.
"Oh Gosh, the moment I drove in, I was blown away... Like blown away! I really thought I'd be roughing it, and instead I found all the comforts of home. I loved the sky, stars, the woods, trees, and the water - all refueled me. More importantly, the safety net that was provided that allowed me to shed layers... Holding the space, feeling the freedom from judgement, allowed me to see and be my authentic self. And... go through the most difficult inner work that I could so for myself... from that safety net... is something I am super grateful for. Tami and John, you're AMAZING! The preparation that the two of you put into these experiences is just incredible. Thank you so much! Every little touch meant so much to me. We're doing hard work to shed and you made the rest of it so easy so we don't have to think about anything else but the inner work. That was helpful. This medicine speaks to me. I now have a sweet rose at my heart that hold many layers of me... "Petals are Opening" and I am peacefully home within within my own heart." - L. Hayden
More words from others, please see below.
Dear Tami and John, thank you for providing such a wonderful experience. I had no idea what to expect, and each place we stepped into was filled with thought and meaning, which brought me great inner peace - well, once I worked with the uncomfortable pieces of myself. This retreat has been a life changer. Thank you. And John, the foods you prepared were filled with so much nourishing love. Each meal was filled with delight. Thank you. Much love to you both, Gayle G., Registered Nurse
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, High School Teacher
The shamanic retreat was hard work, but so juicy and the more I learn to lean into the hurt, the more my heart opens, the more I let go of, and the more I am at peace with myself and my whole world. That feeling I got at retreat of being home within my own heart for the first time has stayed with me. I am forever changed!! I have a sense of happiness and contentment that I either forgot a loooong time ago or I never knew what being happy felt like. I don’t know which. What I do know is that I love the feeling of being happy and at home with myself. It is amazing and bewildering all at the same time. I know I still have petals to pull back, of the rose not the onion, ha-ha) and every time I think about that I’m like, shit! You mean it gets better than this?!? I know that it does and I know there is even more happiness and love for me to find for myself, so I’ll keep showing up, shedding layers and stories and stepping into my skin that always glowed and glistened, that just got dirty and dull with life over time. Laurie Hayden - Massage Therapist and Sacred Healer
WOW! I'm just full of gratitude and emotions. I can't begin to share how it really meant to me that my co-peers held and encompassed me in a time where I didn't want to be seen. This reaffirmed that when this group was formed I was meant to be part of it. I feel as though I have gained some "forever" friends, who share a deep connection. I will carry this in me heart for a long long time. The journey has brought me home to me. For this, I am grateful. Whatever comes up now, I will walk with, soar with, heal with, and walk well with the lesson with love. The experience of the Shamanic Retreat was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I learned so much about myself, and got many answers. The Food was delicious, and could have as much as needed to nourish my being. The accommodations... I give it 5 stars! Hands Down! The teachings, the experience, truly more that I can put into words. I highly recommend this retreat - and I am coming back! I am rejuvenated, connected, open, and ready to live my "I AM" - shining the brightest from my heart. PS. Libby is a pure delight! Thank you! OXO Jenn Richeson, Sacred Healer
I learned a TON about who I am, and what "Tami Calls" holding and binding me from being able to see my future self. The Re-Birthing... um... I can't begin to describe the feeling, WOW, only that it really feels like I am showing up for myself and others in a new way. Tami and John, I can't thank you enough for holding the space for me to alter the course of my life... I was heading down the rabbit hole, and not in a good way. I am now living life on PURPOSE, with my plan in mind. Much love to you both.
K. Sherman, Attorney
I have been looking forward to this Retreat for a year. Last year it was full and I couldn't get in. I know now, I was meant to be with this group. This weekend was beyond my expectation. Delving into my inner world, the dark places of my being was terrifyingly freeing. I've never felt so grounded and free in my entire life. I slept, I ate, I river bathed, and I made some really great friends. I returned home with Peace, Love, and Courage. Thank you from every fiber of my being. Jess Clark, Registered Nurse
Just back from the most incredibly enlightening 3-day retreat on the Mattawamkeag 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, Social Worker
I've trained with Tami in the Healing Arts and she always puts out challenges that I now know don't scare me anymore. I am ready to live and breathe me. I am ready to use these new tools to heal self and others. This Shamanic Retreat said to me "It's time Missy to use your inner tools and there is no problem that you can't over come and work through. The experience far exceeded my expectations, which were all ready pretty high. Since the confirmation of my enrollment, the journey was filled with intention of light, love, healing, and GREAT laughter. The meals were AMAZING! Each meal was prepared with intention to nourish the mind, body, and Spirit. My cabin was so cozy, clean, and very comfortable. In my heart of hearts I now have tools to move forward on my journey. When I feel stuck, I now know I can pull them out and put them to use. Tami and John, Thank you with all my heart. Love, Missy A. Reiki Master Teacher
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.

I am so thankful for this retreat. it open the door for me to step into my shadows and be held by the group with such love, compassion, and understanding, I am ever so thankful for this kind of support. I am honored. Flowing forward, I feel I don't have to try so hard to be me, and just let me be me . I'm pretty AWESOME! Damn.
The overall experience of the retreat just completely blew me away by all aspects. The positivity, acceptance, and welcoming nature of both the physical grounds and the emotional beings Tami and John , you both reached above what I could imagine. The food was phenomenal, and hard not to over-indulge. The lodging and showers were so comfy, I could have stayed for weeks. This is such a place of love shared by Tami and John. I feel so blessed to have shared it with them. Thank You Thank you.
I am in a place of acceptance of the unseen and in my power. I am Peace. Fire. I shed old unwanted skin, and now digesting and learning from that. I am supported by the archetypes... and ready to let things just be what the are when they need to just be.
Love Always, Brett Thompson
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. I waited to send you this note so that I could share the benefits of the Retreat... all I can write today is TRANSFORMATION. I can see and feel the shifts in my every day life with family and friends, and how my interaction with patients has deepened. I am humbly grateful. Thank you.
Lou Lockmann, DO
I don't know if I've ever been in a place, this long, with so many open hearts, and no judgement. Even though we walked through our shadows, it felt like seeing them with more love. Often times I think I'm being mindful out there in the world... but can see now, I was sort of drowning in my own "Stuff" and could not get to that mindful place. Removing myself from my every day norm to be at the retreat - helped me get to that mindful place. I don't believe I could have got to where I am now without the full emersion of the Shamanic Retreat Weekend, which is food for the Soul.
I am ready to use these new healing tools, to dream, dance, to fulfill my purpose, and to realize the gifts I have within me. I am ready to be seen... dark and light. I am grateful for all I've seen and learned - just treasure after treasure. I WILL treasure the weekend always. M. Jane S., Interior Designer
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!
Sally Tauplin, Yoga Teacher
Why am I here? I asked myself. No drum... no rattle... (pause)... I was called, and I said YES, without knowing why. How can I heal without wanting interaction from others...? Yet, I showed up and the retreat was so AMAZING. I feel as though I stepped out of some heavy amour that I didn't even know I was wearing. I just let it go. I am excited about my life, and I haven't felt this way in a long time, a REALLY long time. Thank you, and thank you to all who witnesses the vulnerable parts of my soul. Thank you for giving me permission to go there, and just be with that... letting go... and this is purely ok. The teaching, inspiration, and limitless enthusiasm in Tami's passion was lovely. The lodging... (LOL) way better than I had anticipated and imagined in my mind when my sister asked me to go off-grid with her. I am flowing forward with a sense of excitement in my future. I came here wanting to shut down and heal... and now... I realize I can do this work with an open heart... not closing it and protecting it in order to heal. Thank you Beautiful Woman.

"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.
