Becoming Innocent Again (Module 2)

Healing Our Histories
Friday eve- Sunday, November 20-22, 2015
With Mardi Storm & Travis Wernet
Sebastopol, CA

Join us for the second workshop in the series where we dive into an exploration of our histories in this lifetime and the ways they may have shaped our outlook on life, survival strategies, and automatic responses. Who are we when we uncover, get to know and transform the many layers of identity and experience that we have taken on from our cultures and families? Might we also be someone larger, more expansive and spontaneous than we’ve grown, chosen and agreed to be?

We’ll uncover deep seated beliefs and attitudes, release, honor and discover ancestral, inherited connections, and seek wholeness in relation to these powerful energies, opening to deeper truths in the body and soul and in the world around us. Open your intuition and find guidance through subtle contact with unseen helpers. Learn to open deeply to compassion, greater love for self and other, deeper feeling and rootedness. Discover the great gifts woven into the wounds of the past, heal “soul loss”, open to your true essence, and to the “hidden gold” within, for the sharing of these gifts and the co-creation of meaningful culture.

Access your inner wisdom with somatic healing.



During this weekend immersion workshop we’ll explore ourselves, laugh, play, create, dream, surrender, perhaps cry, be honest, tell the truth, and learn. Free yourself up by learning from others in a group setting, and learn to be seen and witnessed. We’ll access those deep inner spaces with a variety of approaches including Awake! Breathwork for heightening awareness of energy stored in the body and somatically shifting into greater wholeness; Soul Painting for deeper acceptance of feelings and energies, connecting more deeply with our intuition; Projective Dream Work for recognizing and owning our own version of seeing things plus accessing deep wisdom of the soul; and Sound Healing for potent vibrational healing and opening on all levels.

Testimonials from previous program participants:

Mardi & Travis… can be trusted to support you in your personal journey of discovery…I cannot recommend them highly enough. ~C.B.

What I most appreciated about the “Spirit” weekend was your integrated invitation for the Divine to express in a variety of creative ways. Most workshops have a primary orientation. Yours invited Sacred sound, prayer, meditation, nature, dreamwork, intuitive painting and deep relationshipwork with horses into a seamless “ship” that sailed into deep inner waters. When we “Arrived in port,” I returned with a with a clear path of heart healing, and a profound new invitation into a life of joy. ~ A.A


I learned things about myself which I had thought done, gone and dealt with only to notice them still lurking in the corners of unhealed places waiting patiently to be brought to light again… I absolutely loved every moment… ~L.T.

I enjoyed the variety… the effervescent vibratory resonance as a result of breathwork, and the deep space touched into with the dreamwork. I also appreciated the challenge and opportunity to explore and express some shadow material via both dreamwork and painting.

I was repeatedly touched to a place of deep release by Mardi and her ability to tune into the deepest levels of my experience and reflect things to me that left me feeling gotten to the point that I could let go of my efforts to be seen and understood and rest in the quiet of surrender. ~A.A.N.

2011_12_21_MStorm_5797 adjWe create sacred space together at Mamalanda, a beautiful retreat center between Occidental and Sebastopol stewarded by a midwife, for beautiful birthing energy and divine feminine energies honoring the mother, our beginnings. The land offers 4 acres of beautiful gardens and forest with meandering trails through blackberry thickets and secret meadows.  Plenty of room to move, to play, breathe, do yoga, paint, watch the sunset.


2011_12_21_MStorm_5763The lunches on Saturday & Sunday and dinner on Saturday are catered with yummy locally sourced and mostly organic meals, and a light self-serve breakfast will be provided for campers on Sat & Sun. On Saturday during the dinner break local restaurants will be suggested, or feel free to bring your own food. There is a refrigerator and kitchen for our use, including all cookware and flatware.


Camping on the beautiful land under the stars is recommended, you may also choose to camp2011_12_21_MStorm_5766 on the floor in the upstairs plant kingdom womb room or downstairs in the conference room. Residing on the premises for the duration of the workshop is a wonderful way of creating a level of safety for going deeper into your own process, away from your daily life and usual dynamics and connections, and can accelerate opening by remaining continually in sacred space you’ve set aside for yourself. Camping is $30/night and includes use of the hot tub and grounds after hours.  There is also a lovely hotel in Occidental just 5 minutes away for $119/night.
