May 24 - May 28, 2018
Your heart is the holiest place on Earth.
It speaks in universal languages of image, symbol, and song.
Your heart may speak softly, in whispers, or loud like a lion’s roar.
Your heart is not afraid to break open, to expand into the Love it eternally remembers as home.
Your heart’s deepest desires are a form of prayer,
and when you surrender to its devotional calling,
you receive a priceless treasure: sacred fulfillment that benefits all life.
If you are yearning to live in communion with the consciousness of your heart,
to listen to its whispers, its prayers, and its dreams with presence,
then take action on those messages with devotion...
If you feel like your heart’s dreams are unrealistic,
yet you're experiencing anxious feelings of stagnation, boredom,
and a calling for something *more* in your life…
If your heart is asking you to retreat and go within,
to deeply nourish all parts of your being,
and to receive in a community of kindred spirits…
You are invited to join us on a 5-day experiential retreat journeying with your
Heartfelt Dreams in Mt. Shasta, California.
Your heart will never give up on you.
It will never stop speaking to you; it will never cease its whispers,
even (and especially) when the path twists to painful and unexpected challenges.
Your heart asks you to be true to yourself.
It's not interested in external formulas, expert secrets, or “right” paths that have worked for other people.
Your heart lovingly invites you to let go of trusting anything outside of yourself, and go within.
Your heart's dreams are the perfect size for you.
It doesn't believe in "not good enough" or "not practical."
Its desires are sometimes wild, seemingly inconvenient, and always exactly what you need.
Your heart knows your path.
It may not show you the whole picture and it may not tell you what’s ahead.
It will meet you exactly where you are, in the present moment, with loving, open arms and a cozy cup of tea.
This retreat is a sanctuary for your heart.
Through deeply nourishing experiences, you will commune with your heart and listen to its whispers, its words, its ways. You will open to all of its feelings and hear what it has to say. You will receive nourishing support in community, and connect with the heart of the sacred land that is Mt. Shasta.
"The miracles that have unfolded in my life and the exponential growth that has occurred as a result of learning from Madeline and deepening my connection with angels and beyond through Angelic Breath Healing is something that words will never do justice for."
Through deeply nourishing activities including communal meals, journeys to sacred sites on Mt. Shasta, Angelic Breath Healing, and divine surprises, every experience will encourage listening to your heart and letting it take the lead.
You'll have 4 full days to turn down the noise of the outside world and rest in sacred stillness, inquiring within and receiving trustworthy guidance from your heart.
You'll let go of linear timelines, logistics, "shoulds" and "have to's" and simplify your next steps through honoring the wise guidance of your Heart.
You'll deepen your relationship to the Divine through heartfelt prayer and inner communion with your heart, re-attuning to the Divine Suppot and encouragement that is available to you at all times.
You'll come home to your heart, and experience a deep, nourishing, soulful sense of reunion within.
For the last 7 years, I’ve devoted my life to listening to the whispers of my heart. From leaving a blossoming career in magazine journalism to ending a relationship that no longer served me, to moving across the country, starting over, and eventually acting upon the guidance to create Angelic Breath Healing, I’m devoted to its whispers, its shouts, its words, and its ways. Many of the clear messages and visions I’ve received from my heart arrived while in prayer on pilgrimage to sacred sites all over the planet, including the magical Mt. Shasta.
I lead Angelic Breath Healing experiences to hold the space and encourage those in attendance to attune to the voice of their heart and listen to its guidance. The heart vibrates with the element of air, and just like air is largely invisible yet ever-present, so is Spirit. So is the guiding voice within you.
I wish I could say that following the voice of the heart is all rainbows and butterflies (how I wish that!). Sometimes following my heart feels like elated joy, but other times, my heart breaks with truth. It can be tempting to try and un-know what the heart tells you. Yet to deny its voice is self-betrayal, for when your heart breaks with truth, it breaks in order to open to the freedom found in love.
Annik Mendez, Lemurian Sound Healing
Through sacred singing bowls, Annik will offer sound healing experiences to connect to the voice and vibration of your heart. Annik is a heart-centered artist, reiki master, yoga teacher, and sound healer based in Los Angeles, CA.
Infinity, Massage/Bodywork + Dance Awake
Infinity has devotionally followed the path of her heart for the last 10 years. She is a deeply healing bodyworker and founder of Dance Awake, an experiential movement class that encourages closing the eyes, going within, and allowing the wisdom of your body to move you. Infinity is based on the island of Kauai and travels to California several times a year, offering sessions and receiving the blessings of community.
Mt. Shasta is believed to be a cosmic vortex, a sacred planetary coordinate where the energy is both deeply restorative and activating. While you don’t need to travel anywhere other than the present moment to attune with the guidance of your heart, Mt. Shasta's pristine air quality, gentle flowing waters, magical mountain, and tall, heavenly trees encourage easy inner listening. I love Mt. Shasta, because the town is so quaint with the kindest people. The surrounding environment is absolutely gorgeous, deeply healing, and an ideal container for communing with the heart. I cry every time I return to Mt. Shasta because it feels like a homecoming to my heart and soul. I’ve taken several personal retreats to the mountain, each time experiencing divine renewal and encouragement to keep going, one breath, one heartbeat at a time.
“Before meeting Madeline, I had lots of ideas I could not put into action; fear and worry were stopping me, and I allowed my head to convince me why things would not work. Since working with Madeline, my path has become crystal clear. All of the correct ideas clearly came into focus through my own alignment and I have expanded in so many ways.”

“Madeline’s empathetic teaching and facilitation of connecting me to my angels and divine wisdom has changed my world. I’m much more open, creative, intuitive, and ready to take on the possibilities that lie ahead, knowing I have legions of angelic and spirit guides supporting me just waiting to deliver some guidance.”
I want to tell you that after this retreat, all of your dreams will come true!
That you will never experience challenges or pain again!
That magic doors will open and all will be well forever and ever!
The truth is, I do not know what will unfold for you after this retreat - only God knows that.
What I can promise is that you will have spent 4 days and 5 nights in a deeply nourishing environment where all parts of you are welcomed and encouraged. That you will have the sacred space to deeply rest and commune with your heart and its dreams. That you will receive the priceless treasure of embodied experience in heartfelt community. That you will likely never be the same because you have returned Home to the true you. If you feel called to take a leap of faith into the Divine Unknowing, to release expectations around what might happen and what you might get out of it, and instead allow the Divine take your hand, and lead you, one step at a time, I'd love to meet you in Mt. Shasta.

I highly recommend Angelic Breath Healing to anyone wishing to heal, let go, and fully embrace the power and magic of who you truly are back into your life!”
