October 7-12, 2018
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Martha Cordell
and Dr. Ray Henshall

“Shamanism is a personal cognitive will-command strategy for the purpose of attaining higher consciousness-integrity and self-empowerment. … I think we could all agree that humanity is in need of higher consciousness-integrity, and a new (ancient) path toward its achievement. Personal shamanic engagement is the right path.”

On the Atlantic shores of southern Virginia lays the town of Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach is home to a fascinating conglomerate of organizations including Pat Robertson’s fundamentalist Christian 700 Club, the central headquarters for the world-renowned Edgar Cayce foundation (A.R.E.) started by the greatest American prophet that ever lived, and the homeport for the North Atlantic Fleet where both Navy Seals and Pilots are trained and stationed. This interesting dichotomy of consciousness was selected purposely and sets the stage perfectly for this powerful retreat.

In a stunning 10,000-square-foot beachfront house, this most extraordinary retreat commences on October 7, 2018, and ends on October 12. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this home includes indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a movie theatre, and comfortable, elegant furnishings.


Martha Cordell and Dr. Ray Henshall will be presenting a shamanic retreat that will take you deeply into the alive, conscious, and multi-dimensional world we all live in daily. This journey will require teaching you how to effectively interact with the true nature of life in order to acquire protection, healing and to manifest personal objectives. There is true magic in this world, but the ability to access it needs to be understood and experienced. You will be enveloped in an environment that supports this understanding and allows you intimate access to teachers that you can learn from and interact personally with for four full days.

Dr. Ray Henshall is a uniquely gifted healer and Shamanic practitioner. Educated both traditionally in the biological science of life and mystically in the magic of the world we live in, he will teach you to interact with this dimension and other dimensions in a way you never thought possible. Martha Cordell will add her highly developed psychic/intuitive knowledge and abilities to lead you into a safe and empowering awareness of how you direct and use energy to support your life goals.

This retreat is not for the provincial thinker, but instead is designed to stretch you far beyond conventional thinking.

This retreat accommodates a maximum of only 14 “in house” participants, so act quickly and join Martha Cordell and Dr. Ray Henshall for four days of Real Magic.
