Earth Medicine Retreats

About the Retreat


Earth Medicine Retreats, located on Ayavalla Land Company in Tallahassee, FL, seeks to provide safe space in rural, under-developed nature for deep presence, empowerment, and self-healing. 


Earth Medicine Retreats, led by Conscious Lifestyle Coach, Raileigh Duschen, offers organized daily wellness programming including mindfulness exercises and workshops, guided yoga and meditation, guided hiking, and camping opportunities. Sustainably practiced and harvested produce from on-site and local farms will be served throughout the day. 


Ayavalla is home to thousands of acres of the Tallahassee Red Hills Region, located North of Lake Jackson. Old oaks draped in Spanish moss, fruit and nut orchards, horse pastures, food forests, market gardens, and abundant wildlife are some of the wondrous spectacles to behold on a typical visit to Ayavalla. Earth Medicine Retreats considers Ayavalla a romantic escape back home to the self:  simplicity, serenity, and abundant beauty in the surroundings and immersement of nature will inspire any visitor to look within and perceive that same wild beauty within themselves. Earth Medicine Retreats invites you to a unique opportunity for deep healing, empowerment, and transformation.

Nada Migration Sound Healing Journey by Linda McCue. 

Explore your inner dreamscape, and connect with the cosmos with Chanting, Meditation and *Nada.  Lay back and relax, drift and float to the magical healing sounds of the sacred gong, tibetan bowls, flutes, drums and more as they take you on an enchanting vibrational journey to where ever your soul wishes to go!  Trust that this process will fill your heart and soul with love, peace and joy again.  Open your heart, and mind to allow the *Nada to bring perfect harmonious healing and nurturing rest to your body in a way that will balance your chakras, align your meridians and open your energy channels.  Remember who you are and expand as you step fully into your path for this life time!
