Lori attended a Reclaim the Sacred 3 day retreat and explains what has transformed in her life because of the retreat.
Tom Garcia of Reclaim the Sacred is a gifted man on many levels. He is a healer, master story teller, and a natural born shaman. Tom’s element is Fire and I’ve been privileged to attend his powerful fire circle ceremonies on several occasions. During these sacred circles, I’ve witnessed great healings in young and old alike. A natural invocation of Spirit moves thru Tom in such a way that all who participate with him in this ancient and timeless manner cannot help but be affected in a most positive way.

I was desperately seeking healing for my mind, body, and spirit. I was new to Durango, Colorado and was referred to Dr. Tom Garcia by a dear friend. I immediately noticed his authenticity was remarkable just by speaking to him on the phone. I am a Veteran and I was dealing with some mental anguish that was also causing me physical pain. Tom took the time to speak with me over the phone to lift my spirits and guide me in a healthy direction. I was invited to a private fire ceremony, which Tom led, that was deeply healing and transformational. We engaged in courageous conversations and I was able to address some deep rooted questions that I had been desperately seeking answers to. Through detailed prayer and blessings at this ceremonial fire, I knew I had met someone incredibly powerful and healing. I am grateful and blessed to not only call Tom my chiropractor, but also my friend.

I have benefited greatly from sitting around the fire with Tom Garcia. Tom and his authentic work continually remind me of the importance of ritual and sacred ceremony in my life. It’s these times that enable me to safely share and receive. I am always a better person for the experience.
It is rare to be in the presence of such a committed individual as Tom Garcia. His commitment to exploring a deeper connection to the land and to each other is so necessary in today’s world. By creating a safe space his fire circles support the expression of our deepest thoughts and feelings. Through this sharing we learn so much about ourselves, which increases our chances for living a life of purpose and joy.
Being with Tom in a fire ceremony is an opportunity to feel deeply held by the ancient mystery of Life. It is a space of safety where we can touch to reveal to ourselves, and perhaps others, what is most important and most intimate. We leave with our hearts less burdened. The dullness gets burned away. Our spirits are lighter, more joyful, and happiness becomes more natural.
Tom brings this offering with strength and humility from his own authentic connection with this ancient tradition. He is a true guide.
Sage, shaman, guide, and friend. Sitting at the fire with Tom felt like coming home—ancient, familiar, and profoundly moving. I sat at the fire circle in a small group at a time when there was a fire restriction. Fire was not even necessary to set the sacred space with Tom. Creating sacred space is woven into the fabric of Tom’s being. Naturally and gracefully, he allowed Spirit to direct the ceremony. Authentic connection and heartfelt inquiry flowed easily. When the ceremony closed, an owl flew to a low branch near us. Ancient wisdom works through Tom. He is truly is healer with love in heart for those who are seeking a greater connection to Spirit.
“It is difficult if not impossible to express in words what Tom does with his fire ceremonies and his prayer sculptures. It is best to experience these things on your own and to find your own meaning in them. For that is the essence of his work. Each ceremony and each sculpture is personal, sacred and vital to the receiver. They are a spiritual journey that one should take only when one is truly ready. For when you take them with an open heart you will forever be a changed and enlightened being.”
My time in Durango with Dr. Tom of "Reclaim the Sacred" was indeed radically, intimately, profoundly sacred. At the fire ceremony I found myself connecting with deep parts of myself, accessing support from mysterious ancestral guides, and feeling in tune with nature and the people there with me, with the result that I opened up to the present moment and the arc of my life in a way that left me feeling healed, transformed, and rejuvenated. Tom has a special gift of helping everyone tap into the sacred in a gentle, natural way. As a group we bonded and opened up together over shared joy in the land, the fire, and the stars. I can't wait to go back and experience more.”
