September 13-15, 2019
Crestone, Colorado USA
Space is limited to 18 women.
Join us for this 3-day women’s immersion in the expansive high deserts of southern Colorado, where you will explore the art of ecstatic surrender and dive into transformative Feminine practices to awaken your untamed soul.

In this immersion, explore how to…
Relax your body open as a gift of radiant love and orgasmic aliveness
Express yourself fully and fearlessly in intimacy
Create real-world success without compromising your capacity to feel fully alive as a sensually awakened woman
Transform chaotic emotions into an expression of your deepest artistic offering
Trust your inner clarity to discern your deep ‘yes’ and fierce ‘no’
Deepen the subtle flow of love-energy through the sexual channels of your body to dissolve the illusion of separation and awaken two-bodied erotic bliss
Illuminate the shadowed aspects of your Feminine psyche to prevent self-sabotage and reveal your greatest gifts
With Lisa Page and Nina Lombardo as your facilitators, and with a special guest appearance by internationally renowned teacher and author David Deida, come prepared to journey into the temple of your deepest embodied wisdom and the heart of your wildest devotion.

Experiences from past Ocean & Fire participants...
“The workshop forced me to come OUT of myself, move, jump, scream, move circularly not just linear, share, go to my dark places and deepest desires. All of which felt uncomfortable and not fun… and yet so necessary! This workshop 100 percent fulfilled my expectations. I feel that the old passionate me has been unleashed again! In life and in bed! Most of it was soooo uncomfortable for me and yet it has brought me back to life!” —J.C.
“Women witnessing women in a context of love and acceptance brings healing, and a capacity in me that I did not know was there. Exposing my dark side, dipping into that valley, helped me to access my power and a rootedness that was solid. Ladies, this was awesome! One of the most profound experiences I have ever had. Your workshop design was perfect and so were all of you! I would highly recommend this to others and already have… You just need to get dates in the calendar for the next workshop!” —Margot Montgomery
“I loved the somatic experience that I felt and left with. It was something that I felt deep in my being and have never felt before. I have a new reference point. I felt safe to push my edges and as the weekend unfolded, I saw how each practice built on each other. I loved the palpable feeling of divine feminine energy in the room. I loved how all emotions were welcome – rage, sadness, joy, excitement, creative/sexual energy, etc.” —D.P.
“I loved it all. I was challenged in so many ways with such integrity and love. Each session built on the next so beautifully and was interwoven to nourish and deepen.” —Amy Chambers

PRACTICE SPACE: THE TEMPLE
Just down the road from the ashram is the beautiful Ancient Dance School—or The Temple. This will be our main practice space for the duration of the immersion. The gardens and sacred arts around the facility give homage to the ancient dance teachers and traditional arts. The school was built with an awareness of the sacred geometry from the Natya Shastra, the geomancy of the land, and knowledge of a 2000 year old tree on the property.
Crestone, Colorado is nestled at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, where they merge into the exapansive San Luis Valley. Many cultures have recognized the pristine lands of the San Luis Valley to have great spiritual significance, regarding it as a highly potent place for transformation. It has been referred to by some indigenous tribes as the Sacred Center of Turtle Island, where the first light came to North America. Many Tibetans have migrated to this land, and there are several stupas (buddhist shrines) located in the area, as well as countless spiritual centers from multiple traditions, including Hindu, Christian, Zen Buddhism, and several Tibetan lineages.
Approach your travels to the sacred lands of Crestone, Colorado as a pilgrimage. Plan to arrive by Thursday evening and leave on Monday morning. We want you to have plenty of time to arrive fully and adjust to the high altitude before diving into practice on Friday afternoon.
The nearest major airport is Alamosa, which is about an hour south of Crestone. You will need to arrange ground transportation (car rental/taxi shuttle service) to get from Alamosa to Crestone. There are also airports in Colorado Springs (3 hours), Denver (4 hours) and Albuquerque (5 hours). There is a daily bus service between Denver and Alamosa, which stops in Moffat. You can use the local taxi/shuttle services to get from Moffat to Crestone (25 minutes).
