Winter Solstice Retreat & Ceremony
for Radical Self Nourishment
with Deborah Brodey
Saturday December 17, 2022
10:00 am– 5:00 pm Eastern
This retreat is designed for changemakers, healers, leaders, creatives who are longing to care for themselves and connect with Spirit and the Earth in community.
In this time of long nights, we are being asked by Nature to go within and to rest and be held in the dark. It has been and is a very intense and stressful time for so many on our planet and we need to deeply replenish and rest within the caves of our being. We often resist the dark and may be fearful and yet it is in the dark that we renew ourselves and nourish the soil of the Self. We also need community at this time to warm each other.
Join me for a special daylong Retreat and Ceremony where we will take a sacred pause to align ourselves and honour the beauty and the medicine of the dark, let go of what is ready to be released that has been hindering our growth and celebrate the return of the light.

A bit about me:
As a Transformation Guide/Sound healer/yoga teacher for over 22 years, one of my great passions in life is to co-create ceremonies that honour the Earth and the cycles of Nature. I have experienced more personal healing and life changing transformations through the power of ceremony. I have been blessed to study with healers/yogis, Indigenous medicine men/ from all over the world and I believe it is through ceremony we can truly come into right relationship and reciprocity with ourselves, each other, and all of Nature to heal our planet and our world.
Here is what people are saying
“Deborah has an amazing ability to weave together threads from many spiritual lineages and infuse it with her own unique presence and insights. I love how she has distilled years of spiritual practice into her unique process. It is simple, yet profound and allows others to go very deep with grace and ease. In her ceremonies, she offers a co-creative experience that honours the blend of energies in the group. Her ability to hold space in such a solid and embracing way allows participants to safely explore tender places and yet spacious enough to allow spontaneity to freely flow. I always receive new insights when I journey with Deborah. Her depth, wisdom, humbleness and humour make her a warm-hearted and highly skilled guide. She has such an abundance of riches to share. May many more receive the benefits of her offerings and right relationship with our beloved planet and all who dwell here be restored”
“Deborah’s work is one of the main reason that I am so happy and succesful. Her extraordinary teachings and gifts are at the heart of much of my self care. Deborah is a wise and experienced sound healer, teacher & ceremonialist who has a powerfully vast spiritual life. I could talk to her forever. She is truly a sister on my path.”
“Before I joined RSN during covid I was focusing on problems and on other people and was neglecting myself. Through Deborah’s Radical Self Nourishment Program I released my stress reaction to the crisis and have increased my serenity and capacity to care for my health and well being. RSN was deeply nourishing and kept me accountable for my self care. The ceremonial format both enriched my Spiritual experience and helped me take doable actions to practice self care every day! Deborah brings an openness, a reflective space, magic, compassion and deep understanding to others and I felt blessed to receive her gifts.”
