"I have been dreaming of going to Türkiye for many years. I was fortunate enough to live this magical experience with Jennifer and a group of incredible women. Not only did we visit sacred sites, temples, ruins but we were also fully exposed to the culture, traditions, food, crafts and an unforgettable boat ride in which we admired the architecture of the city. " ~MCBV

"The Sacred Turkey Retreat was a mystical, 5 star experience.  Our guides were story tellers and made the vibrant history come alive.  We experienced so much in a few days. The retreat center was above the beautiful valley which we viewed while being served delicious, fresh food or lounging at the infinity pool. Something that is best experienced and felt rather than just described because words are not enough.  It was magical! " ~S.G.

"The Sacred Turkey trip was phenomenal from all perspectives.  From the historic and sacred sites in Istanbul to the gorgeous hilltop retreat center, the planning was purposeful and seamless.  The historical, cultural and spiritual aspects were  intricately interwoven throughout our journey. This was more than just a trip. It was an ethereal and spiritual experience. Meditating at the Temple of Apollo, feeling the energy of the Temple of Athena - these were experiences of a lifetime. The highlight for me was visiting the ancient city of Ephesus and the home of the Virgin Mary.  I felt deeply blessed and energetically elevated. The imprint of this journey will be felt in my heart forever." ~ C.H.

Meet Your Guide

Jennifer Brinn - High Res 20.jpg

It is my deepest honor

Since 1999, I've accumulated wisdom from my trainings in yoga, meditation, massage therapy, Reiki, shamanism, energy medicine, somatic healing, psychic healing, animal communication and most importantly, my innate connection to Earth & Cosmos.

And since 2008, I've traveled to sacred sites around the world, from the vortices of the southwest, to the mystical Neolithic sites of the UK, trekking over towering Andean mountains that hold ancient Incan wisdom, bathing in purifying waters of Hawaiian Islands, to ancient temples of Turkey which hold divine feminine energies. Each site has provided me with powerful activations and wisdom which influence my teachings, healings and personal practice.

These retreats offer a tapestry of experiences, soul activations and a transference of ancient wisdom for you to embody and utilize as a powerful change agent in your life.

I am committed to ensuring a safe, supportive container by teaming up with trusted guides, lodging, transport, etc so that you feel secure in deepening into these experiences and  allow your soul to flourish.

It is my deepest honor to be a guide on your journey!

XOXO Jennifer
