Awakening Joy!

July 3-6, 2020


This is a 4 day immersion for women who are ready to open to Self, Love and Embodied Joy with Elizabeth Claire Burr & Josea Tamira Crossley 

Immersed in the support of nature, we will let go of our daily cares and responsibilities and awaken Presence in harmony with the land, the wisdom of our bodies, and the wholeness of our being.

Through awareness meditation, somatic movement, nature connection and loving kindness practices - within a strong container held by the land and the facilitators - you will be invited to clear unprocessed personal, ancestral and collective trauma to make room for embodied JOY, Love & purpose. 


The practices we will do together are simple, eloquent and profound reminders’ of this Presence that we already are.

Josea Tamira Crossley 

I’m a Somatic & Craniosacral Therapist, Bodyworker and Yoga Teacher and have practiced both hands on and distance healing work for over 18 years. I’m also known as “Grief Doula” in my community as I facilitate Grief Ritual as a regular community practice. I love to bring in elements of Deep Nature Connection to all my work as I have experienced directly how nature heals the nervous system and brings us towards our own true nature as human beings

I believe the gifts of each woman are deeply needed on the earth at this time. Transforming grief allows us to show up as our fullest selves ~ joyful, radiant, resilient and in Love. My grief tending practice is influenced by the work of Francis Weller MFT (WisdomBridge), Martin Prechtel (author of The Smell of Rain on Dust), Joanna Macy (the Work that Reconnects) and Jon Young (8 Shields/Deep Nature Connection)

Elizabeth Claire Burr ERYT

After a spontaneous awakening in my 30’s, I actively sought and found healers, teachers and teachings that could help make sense of the experience I witnessed in my Self. I have since been actively practicing, and sharing these profound and uncommon teachings and have had the great fortune to have studied with true masters from many lineages.

The foundations of my practice and teaching come from the deep and committed training and certification that I have received in the Vijnana Yoga tradition, Vajrayana teachings in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Essential Somatics movement educator training, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, experience based Somatic Therapy and Visionary Craniosacral Therapy.

My passion is to help women recognize the true essence of who they are and to bring this awareness into compassionate action in the world. Currently, I am being inspired to offer these teachings in retreat format, in nature based location that inspire and support deeper healing and awakening.  If you are keen to learn more about transformational retreats, workshops, mentoring and private healing sessions you can join my mailing list on my website
