A Blissful Late Winter Retreat

Celebrate Imbolc & the coming Spring through the Practice of Reiki and Irish Wisdom Traditions


Celebrate Imbolc and the Coming Spring
A weekend retreat with an opportunity to learn and practice the Japanese Art of Reiki. A time to circle together, to practice Reiki, meditation, yoga, art, and ceremony. A time to ground, to release, to discuss and learn, and especially to warm up in the hot springs, recharge and renew, as we welcome the spring energy and celebrate goddess Brighid & Imbolc.
Time to BE, soak, reflect, & receive support in a community.

Meet your Hosts: Tekla & Tonja-

Tekla is so excited to have a special guest teacher and friend, Tonja, join the Imbolc retreat! Tekla “found” Tonja after purchasing Tonja’s Brighid oracle cards at Brighid’s Garden in Ireland in September 2019. After returning home and browsing for her deck on Etsy, she discovered Tonja’s website and saw that she was in Denver and taught all kinds of great classes about Irish Wisdom Traditions. Tekla signed up for Tonja’s 9-month Sacred Ritual Arts program in January 2020- yes, we started in-person and went Zoom when the pandemic hit. Tonja has led Traditional Irish rituals for 2 decades and it is an honor and a gift to have her join this retreat as a special guest teacher.  Tekla and Tonja bring a mutual passion for witchery, healing, Irish Wisdom Traditions, laughing, and also discussing the patriarchy and the grind culture. Join us to step away from the grind culture and into rest- you will not regret gifting yourself this retreat as we close the winter season & welcome spring through ritual & renewal.

Tekla Ayers is an Intuitive Reiki-Informed Teacher, who has spent 12 years studying and practicing the healing arts. She supports others through community, daily practices, setting energetic boundaries, and releasing energy with many practices including the Japanese Art of Reiki. For those ready (or even not-so-ready) to transform, connect with their own intuition, and continue to heal, you are invited to join this opportunity to recharge and renew as we welcome the spring energy and celebrate goddess Bridgid & Imbolc.

As a student and teacher of herbal remedies and of the Irish Wisdom Tradition for 20 years, Tonja Reichley is passionate about Irish traditions, rituals, storytelling, and ancestral herbs. Some of her legacy to these learnings includes her Way of Brighid Oracle Cards, honoring Irish goddess and saint Brighid, and her book Wild Irish Roots: A Seasonal Guidebook of Herbs, Ritual and Connection.
