About the Facilitator(s)

Wilbert Alix has earned international recognition as a contemporary healer and teacher of progressive psychology and neo-shamanism. A prominent figure in the emerging science of body-centered psychology his presentations are accentuated with intellectual depth and a unique insight into the relationships between traditional shamanic healing, progressive psychology and modern science.

For more than 30 years Wilbert has trained individuals on how to achieve greater self-esteem, to communicate more effectively, to transform stress and anxiety into positive energy and to transform goals into concrete results. In 1990 this program expanded into the mystical worlds of shamanism, organic healing and transformational music. CDs such as Shaman's Breath, Medicine Trance, Rites Of Passage and Spirit Animal were created to help facilitate Trance Dance as a viable tool for spiritual healing… and introduced thousands to the world of shamanic healing through movement.

Wilbert continues to explore the professional application of Trance Dance and other contemporary shamanic techniques as legitimate healing and therapeutic tools. He conducts annual trainings and retreats around the world. Wilbert frequently appears at professional conferences as well as teaching educational mind/body science programs to individuals and corporations.

Wilbert says of his workshops: “My intention is to bring into focus the enormously complex worlds of mysticism, psychology, shamanic spirituality, and science for the purpose of clear direction and achievement.”

Body Wisdom Retreat

Wilbert Alix

The Body Wisdom Retreat is an exploration into discovering your unique spiritual purpose. This retreat blends the neo-shamanic spiritual (body) dance structures of The Trance Dance Experience with the creative-mind structures of the Manifesting Results Program. The purpose of this blend is to extend the process of comprehension and understanding into the body itself... to activate the entire human body as a creative organism capable of constructing reality through our expressive ability.

One week package cost $1,250 per person for double occupancy shared bath and $1390 for double occupancy with private bath. See packet for other housing/cost options;  Two yoga classes daily and three delicious healthy meals daily. 

About the Facilitator(s)

Lynne took her first yoga class while in college, at the YMCA in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Her first instructor and mentor, Trudy Davis, encouraged her to teach when she moved to Alaska in 1977.  She enrolled in the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco’s Teacher Training Program the summer of 1980. Encouraged by Donald Moyer, she attended her first yoga Intensive at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India in 1981. She was certified to teach yoga by BKS Iyengar in 1984. Subsequent trips to Pune followed in 1988 and 1997.

Lynne founded the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 1982 in Anchorage, Alaska and oversaw  its growth and development into a thriving center with 20 plus instructors for the next 26 years . She  started the Inner Dance Teacher Training program in 1999 which  trained over 100 yoga teachers in the 8 years of her  oversight of the program.   Lynne sold the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in 2008.   She now travels the country and the world teaching yoga wherever she is invited.

Lynne  draws inspiration from yoga on and off the mat,  attending local classes and  sharing practice with others .  She honors her  teachers of  the Iyengar  tradition, Judith Lasater, Donald Moyer,  and  Fr. Joe Pereira .   Self-Realizaion Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's organization, to which she was first exposed in 1978 is another continuing source of upliftment.   

Yogananda says, "The true purpose of life is to realize one's Self as wisdom and bliss".   Patanjali's yoga sutra book II, sutra 41 (Light on Yoga Sutras, BKS Iyengar translation) states, " When the body is cleansed, the mind purified and the senses controlled, joyful awareness needed to realize the inner Self, also comes."  My mission statement is to help myself and others to awaken joyful awareness through the practices of yoga;   asanas that cleanse the body, pranayama that calms the mind, concentration that controls the senses, and meditation for realizing the Inner Self.

Lynne grew up in Wisconsin. Her love of travel and degree in Environmental Geology brought her to play and work in Alaska in 1975.  That year she met future husband, Jim , and together they made Alaska home. They have been married since 1978.  Together they enjoy camping, flying, overseas travel and their wonderful community of family and friends. Lynne also loves to sing, hula, play her ukelele,  garden, bike and hike. She is in the process of relocating to Prescott, Arizona.

Singing with Courage

Jon Arterton

January 15, 2013 - January 20, 2013

"I'm discovering that lots of people were told not to sing as children - can you imagine?! I'm sure many of them heard far more than "Don't Sing"; they heard "Don't Speak. Don't really be." Singing is a very scary experience for many of us - it's so fraught with opportunities to make a fool of oneself. For those of us who were encouraged to sing as children, singing has always been magical haven, and yet a bit of a mystery.

About the Facilitator(s)

JON ARTERTON began his musical journey as a choirboy at Washington's National Cathedral. He was twice a Tanglewood Vocal Fellow at the Berkshire Music Festival, and holds a Master's Degree in Choral Conducting from The New England Conservatory of Music. He also holds an MFA in Acting from Smith College, and has performed in hundreds of plays and musicals, including one night on Broadway in The Utter Glory of Morissey Hall. He was the founder and musical arranger of The Flirtations, the proudly gay a cappella group seen on HBO and in the film Philadelphia. He conducts The Outer Cape Chorale, a 140-voice community chorus in Provincetown, Massachusetts he began in 2002. He also serves as the Director of Music at The U.U. Meeting House in Provincetown and gives periodic Singing Workshops. He recently took fifth place in a national online competition to collaborate with cellist Yo-Yo Ma in a performance of Dona Nobis Pacem. He and his husband James Mack have recently released their first CD together entitled Legally Married … and the sky didn’t fall!
