Past Facilitators
Welcome to Edge of World Retreats

Our facilitators will guide you and support you on these unique spiritual journeys, which are customized accordingly for each sacred site. Our facilitators are chosen for their specific expertise that is highly specialized in their own particular spiritual niche. Each site is matched with a perfect blend between facilitator and themed message that corresponds with the essence of the sacred site.

There is an inherent essence or quality that lives at each sacred site. Our facilitators have tapped into that great resource of infinite wisdom and clarity and they mix that with an ability to connect and commune with spirit. They have mastered the method and messaging that will ultimately be the vehicle to heighten your own inner experience on this discovery of self.

Dear Tracy,
The journey was healing.
Watching you set limits and go for function gave me an example of what I need to do to move forward in my life. Being with the group was a beautiful heart sharing. Thank you again for orchestrating a memorable experience, looking forward to sharing photos.
