Creativity Explosion

Psycho-Magic and Presence

May 26-29, 2017
A Retreat at Manzanita Village

Michele Benzamin-Miki
Caitriona Reed


Breaking the patterns of the past forever.

“I used to think that presence was something you either had, or didn’t have. Then I learned that it’s something you can develop. This has been my life’s work. To break the mirror of the limitations you impose and simply be in the radical presence that changes everything.”   — Scott Kelman. Performer, Director, Impresario, Teacher

Breaking a mirror is considered to be bad luck by some. Perhaps it’s because mirrors were once a rare and precious commodity. Perhaps, it’s because breaking a mirror was like disfiguring an effigy, or sticking pins in a doll. It was considered to be a dark and powerful juju.

There’s a very different sort of magic, more powerful than breaking silvered glass, that happens when you break the mirror of your own self-image. Because when you break THAT mirror, you change the stories you’ve been telling yourself about what’s possible, about how you’re supposed to feel, about who you are.

Break The Mirror Retreat

Imagine stepping through a doorway into a world where a community of like-minded people, come together for three days, with the sole purpose of shedding the skin of their old self-image, stories, prescribed emotions, and identity.

Join us for a Psychomagic journey to break the distorting mirrors and change how you navigate the world of your imagination. Re-invent everything about what’s possible — for you as a creative force in your business, in your life. in how you love, in how you create.

Breaking mirrors is not just doing away with the old, It’s gaining new eyes, new ears, and new sensibilities, freeing yourself from the old juju of beliefs and perspectives that have been stopping you from standing in your brilliance.

Radical Presence is how you get there. We will be marrying ancient wisdom-skills with the practical understanding drawn from contemporary brain science.

Who Should Attend: Anyone who is a creative, artist, entrepreneur, committed to creating a new spiritual-creative-psychological approach and passionate about learning new skills for living a purpose-driven, heart-centered, energy-rich life.

Big Picture Retreat

at Manzanita Village
with Caitriona and Michele

December 27 – 30, 2017
Tuesday Afternoon 2 PM – Friday 
Afternoon 2 PM

A Psychomagic adventure in the spirit of opening to all that’s possible for you in the New Year. Join us for the twenty-third (we can hardly believe it ourselves) end-of-year Five Changes retreat at Manzanita Village. Open to all comers.

Your imagination, your mind, the wide wide world, is neither big nor small. 

You brain, together with your body, is the most complex system we know. Your brain makes an estimated trillion neural connections at any given moment. It is an ecosystem, a universe of it’s own ongoing self-creation.
The cells in your body resemble the cells of your brain. They are interactive and ‘intelligent’ in ways we have to reeducate ourselves to even begin to understand. Centuries of misinformation have taught to look at living things as machines, so we each need to make time, as we will on this retreat, to re-vision who, and what, we are.

Any experience, thought, sensation, or emotion that you have, has the power to change you to the core; because it changes the whole system. It means that really dramatic transformation, that can shatter old habits, old attitudes, and old beliefs, is actually much easier than we think.

Bridging ancient technologies for the spirit and mind with modern brain-science, trance and family systems constellation .. to offer you a blazing-entry way into the new year. 

Distorting Lenses

If you’re looking through distorting lenses you never get to see the world for what it truly is or can be. You never get to see yourself for who you truly are or can be. You compromise, and everything suffers. You end up struggling. Your health, business, relationships, everything is compromised. Clean the lens, better yet, throw it away, make a new one of your own choosing. Stand for what’s possible. Live your truth.

Mindset Reset for 2018

In anticipation of your brilliant new year, reset to a new heart-mind-spirit intention. Clear the clutter and baggage. Take a pause to breathe, see, hear, and set your clearly defined intentions and goals for who you want to be, and how you want your life to be, in 2017.

Deep Dive 

If you want to dive deep into the ocean of psycho-spiritual possibility, then we invite you to be at Manzanita Village for this end-of-year retreat.
