Rhythms & Cycles
Overcoming the Karma of your Stars

a dash™ healing retreat luxuriously hosted in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
March 11 - March 18, 2017

Everything is of a cyclical nature.  There are rhythms going on effecting us all the time.  Sometimes we call it “mood” or “feeling” but there is an explanation for everything, leaving nothing to randomness.  Astrological influences effect us and the degree we are unaware of them determines the degree to which they govern our life.

Twice a year, the Sun undergoes the Equinox - a time when we are given a boost of energy to renew our life so we can bring more light to the world.  Every Equinox introduces a new archetypal energy into the world, on a personal and global level.  2017 is summed up to a 1 and this begins a brand new 9 year cycle, so beginners you are welcome!  If you are reading this, your higher self wants it!

A Message

from Arik Xander

I welcome you to join us in preparing for the spring equinox 2017 in Cabo San Lucas. I have used astrological mapping to figure where the best energy for these spiritual teachings can unfold.

The Rhythms & Cycles is a week long equinox preparation program.  I will teach about the cycles of life, which are unending and effecting all sentient beings.  This includes, karma, time, overcoming and using astrological influences, and how to get into rhythm and harmony with your life purpose.  Until we have connected to our life purpose, we will experience cyclical negativity and unending chaos.

This retreat will help you to hold a purified view of reality to see things are good, beautiful, infinite, healthy, and abundant.  There will be opportunity to receive a dash™ Chiron Point Healing.  I will also be offering dash™ astrology chart readings to see what challenges you are facing in your life at the time of the retreat and beyond.

The following are therapies which I will offer during the retreat, outside of the workshops and classes based upon availability. You can pre-book them now to reserve an appointment with me or book a session with me while there, If there is no availability for a session at the retreat don't worry! You can book a session with me any time as I am able to conduct the healing from anywhere via Skype.

  • dash™ Chiron Point Healing ( 100 USD)
    All I need to see what's going on with you on the physical and spiritual level is your birth chart and basic kinesiology.  Working with these tools, I can help you identify what goals you want or need to set for yourself.  Once we have established this, I can begins to help you accept the good.  The first step I make in doing this is healing your Chiron point.  Until this point is healed, other therapies or activities will not last.

  • dash™ Astrological Consultation ( 50 USD)
    This reading goes into the basic structure of your chart.  Depending where the transiting sun is, I will explain the archetypes at play and how the energy is manifesting in your life according to your birth date, place and time.  Anyone who wants to know which archetypes are effecting which areas of their life can benefit from this reading.

  • Chakra Balancing ( 100 USD)

  • Meridian Balancing ( 100 USD)

  • dash™ Massage with Healing Oil Blends from dharmaceuticals (TBD)
    If you have a favorite blend, you can have a massage in it!  Let us know beforehand which blend you want and we can bring it for you.  I suggest getting a massage in your zodiac sign blend or in the blend of the month, which will be Pisces.
