Loneliness is not a mere void to be filled by connection. It is an expansive emotional landscape that many of us traverse, often in silence. In a world where superficial connection often leaves us yearning for more, a world that often overlooks the depths of our loneliness, we invite you to join our transformative gathering.
“Wholeness in Loneliness: An Alchemy of Unredeemable Sorrow to Sources of Love”
Loneliness can be a complex and deeply personal experience. We’ve all experienced those dark nights when the disconnection within our relationships intensifies and the powerful pain of separation echoes through our ancestral lineages.
But here’s the beautiful truth: when a closed or wounded heart opens, something magical happens. Vulnerability becomes our strength, and the fires of passion within us reignite. The darkness of loneliness begins to lift, and a path to healing emerges. Even our ancestors, who reside in our cellular memory, including those who endured unimaginable suffering, can take their place in our journey towards wholeness. Through the alchemy of transformation, they can transition from nodes of unredeemable sorrow into sources of love and blessing.
During this gathering, we will embark on an alchemical journey together. We’ll explore how to connect with and find wholeness in your loneliness, using it as a powerful fuel to expand your compassion, not only towards others but also towards yourself and even those who have passed on. Together, we will imagine our loneliness as resonating guitar strings, each contributing to a symphonic quest to harmonize with life’s music at its source.
This event is a safe space for self-discovery, healing, and personal growth where we will explore the complexities of loneliness and the transformative power it holds. It’s an opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded individuals who are on a similar journey towards wholeness.
Join us on September 23rd and discover the alchemy of love and transformation within your own heart. Together, we’ll create a beautiful harmony with the music of life at its source.
The Seeing with Your Heart retreat is a deep dive into the primal mysteries of human consciousness. Alchemical Constellations give a newfound strength to the inner center. Not one that comes from self-improvement, but from reawakening to evolution’s eternal truths which have been nearly exterminated by cultural, societal, and family traumas. First, by engaging with ancestral presences to release the oppressive structures of guilt, shame, and fear that squeeze the juice out of life. Second, through the alchemy of the heart which transforms the decay of trauma into the food that nourishes the full flowering of your life. Seeing with Your Heart will open your body and mind to new pathways of creativity, purpose, passion, and community.
Together, we will dive into the deepest parts of human experience where you can feel, in an entirely new way, how the living and dead remain in relationship and can together contribute to a deeper assertion of life. When you learn to see with your heart, you see yourself and the world in new light.

The new science of consciousness reveals that the human mind exists within a visible material world and an invisible spiritual realm. When we access the consciousness of the earth beneath our feet, the life force animating our body and the ancestral and spirit fields surrounding us, our lives move into rhythm.
The Science, Myth, Magic & Mystery class brings together Dan Cohen’s teaching on this new cosmology with Seeing with Your Heart Constellations. Each week we will explore the core questions that class members ask about their lives, relationships, and desires. By exploring these themes collectively, we gain insight into the realms of awareness beyond human space and time.
If you are interested in working privately with Dan and/or Emily, we welcome you to to learn more about our services. Together we will identify the inherited patterns present and the pathways to create space for the possibility of the future calling you forward.
