Join Michelle Karén for a powerful two-day weekend Shamanic immersive sacred retreat in one of the most recognized energy vortexes on the planet – SEDONA!
Our intention is to provide a nurturing, healing and sacred space, to assist you in your journey to raise your consciousness, expand your awareness, and access more of your innate abilities, knowledge, intuition, creation, healing, divinity, wisdom, peace, joy, compassion and love.
Almost 2 decades ago, a head-on train collision in the jungle led Michelle Karén to be recognized and initiated by the Q’ero Master Shamans.
Drawing upon the ancient Earth wisdom of her native Finland, the land of the Kalevala – the epic ancient shamanic text that inspired Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings – as well as the deep knowledge acquired during her stays in Peru, home to the ancient Inkas, Michelle has developed a wealth of Shamanic knowledge deeply rooted in the wisdom of Nature.
During this exceptional retreat in the sacred red rocks of Sedona, she will share her unique journey into shamanism and teach simple, specific, practical techniques to transform your life and fulfill your highest destiny.
In these times of major planetary changes, shamanism – more than ever – offers valuable techniques to shift our consciousness, embrace our truth with integrity and courage, and become all that we can be in our divinity.
During this one of a kind weekend retreat, you will learn how to:
- open sacred space,
- understand the principles of shamanism,
- create sand paintings and use them to resolve personal challenges,
- journey to the different worlds to meet your power animal, as well as receive real answers to any question you may have,
- record and understand your dreams for personal guidance,
- work with your shadow to reach inner transparency,
- choose your drum and initiate it into a magical instrument of power,
- and much, much more… as inspired by your specific concerns.
This powerful weekend will end with a Despacho Ceremony
This traditional Prayer Ceremony Michelle Karén learned in Peru from the Q’ero Master Shamans is fun, dynamic and profound. Up to a hundred ingredients, such as chocolate, beans, raisins, flowers etc… go into the creation of a Despacho, forming a beautiful natural mandala. Each symbolizes an aspect of our lives, with always a balance between the masculine and the feminine. All our prayers are blown into quintus (traditionally, coca leaves, but bay leaves for us in the West) for manifestation. The bundle thus formed in a state of reverence and gratitude, is then burned, allowing our prayers to be released in the ethers and brought to the upper world by Condor and Pachamama (Mother Earth).
The results of a Despacho can be mild if we are already connected to our higher truth, or quite intense if we have strayed from our destiny. Coming in right relationship with aspects of our lives could initially lead to surprising results. We could be called to quit our job, move, see a love relationship come to an end or find ourselves temporarily without money. But all these occurrences, however dramatic they may seem at the time, will invariably lead to much better circumstances: such as the job of our dreams, the partner who matches us in body, mind, heart, spirit and greater abundance than ever.

Michelle Karén M.A., D.F.Astrol.S. – Master’s degree in Philosophy (University of Geneva, Switzerland with a thesis on the meaning of archetypes in the works of Carl Gustav Jung), and Diploma from the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London with complementary studies in Medieval Astrology (horary astrology).
French and Finnish born, Michelle became an astrologer at the age of 14. She is the author of 8 books on astrology, living food nutrition, yoga and spiritual novels written in French, English and Finnish. A regular contributor to the Sedona Journal, she has been the guest of many prestigious radio and television shows around the world, and was said by Kryon in 2009 in a public channeling in Laguna Hills, CA to be “a Master Astrologer who reads the Akash directly and to be the first one to bring quantum astrology to this planet”.
In 2007, she was selected to be the exclusive astrologer to the Stars at the 78th Academy Awards in Hollywood. Her readings are sought by a vast clientele in over 57 countries on 5 continents. Her best selling last book Astrology For Enlightenment was published by Simon & Schuster in New York is a revolutionary book that redefines each sign by returning to the observation of nature and showing how each sign can use all the other signs to enhance different aspects of life. She also contributed to reactivating the ancient prophecy of John of Jerusalem which throws both a dramatic and exciting light on our times. Fascinated by spiritual archeology and the mysteries of evolution, she strongly believes that knowledge is power and that we are each co-creators of humanity’s greatest adventure yet into enlightenment.
Honored by the Hopi medicine men of Arizona, she is also a shaman, initiated in Finland and in the mountains of Peru by the Q’ero Master Shamans, direct descendants of the Inkas. She leads workshops and ceremonies around the world training people into the forgotten art of journeying, shapeshifting, communicating with our power animal and drumming to further our awareness of our oneness with all of life. Every year, she leads a mystical, transformative journey to Peru and among other extraordinary shifts of consciousness, has brought her groups to naturally experience dematerialization at the Aramu Muru Door on the Alti Plano, by Lake Titicaca. In two hair cutting ceremonies, she had the honor of being asked to become the godmother of two Q’ero children. She has also lived many months in Colombia where she was welcome in the closed to the public sacred mountain range of the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta by the Atlantic Ocean. She further learned some of the traditional ways of the Arhuaco Mamos (Master Shamans), descendants of the ancient Tayronas, the elder brothers of humanity.
A professional model and actress trained at the Beverly Hills Playhouse in Beverly Hills and the Gene Bua Acting for Life studio in Burbank, she has been cast in several Hollywood movies and music videos (e.g. “the woman in red from the past” in The Backstreet Boys’ Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely). She is also the French voice of the Alpine navigation system in Hondas in Canada, a painter specializing in the natural colors of nature, has a red belt in Tae Kwon Do and volunteers for FreeArts for abused children in Hollywood.
When not traveling the world, Michelle lives in Phoenix, AZ and Helsinki, Finland.
