Wild Poiesis

Retreat from the Ordinary to Awaken the Extraordinary:
A Sacred Engagement with Poiesis


June 3 - 8, 2024, Golden BC


The process of emergence of something that did not previously exist… a threshold occasion, a moment of ecstasis when something moves away from its standing as one thing to become another.

Welcome to this wildly
transformational possibility


You are invited to retreat away with us at Quantum Leaps Lodge, nestled between the Rockies and Purcell Mountains, and delve together into the profound mysteries of Creation, Being, and the untamed potential of Poiesis. 
We gather to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation, energetically supported by higher consciousness and its collaborative dance with our free will. 
Join us as we explore the dynamic process of shapeshifting within the continual emergence of this curious human existence. Through contemplative practices, immersive experiences like breathwork and ceremonial journeys that invoke non-ordinary states of consciousness, guided meditations and yoga nidra, we will  consciously recruit the poiesis that is our innate shapeshifting capacity and catalyze deep healing. Together, we will uncover the connection between Creation and the Void, where Being arises from a state of potentiality. . 
Our impending adventure immersed in gorgeous nature on sacred land invites you into deeper contact with the fertile ground from which all existence springs forth. Here, Nothing is not a mere absence but a canvas for the brushstroke of Creation, lovingly inspired by one’s higher guidance and the boundless love of Creation itself. 
In this sacred space of exploration and discovery, you will awaken to levels of choice within yourself and the universe, that may have not been accessible before, embodying the spirit of the shapeshifter. Let go of preconceived notions and open to the transformative power of poiesis. 
Come, join us on this soul-stirring odyssey of self-discovery, spiritual awakening, and shapeshifting. Let the essence of poiesis, wisdom of loving and playful community, and the grace-blessed support of higher consciousness and compassionate allies, guide you as you embark on a journey of profound transformation and inner alchemy.
