THE UNICORN WAY: MASSAGE THERAPY
WITH ALANA CAIN

Growing up in Big Sur Alana understood that nature holds space for everything to heal itself. During her body work sessions she creates the space for you to drop into your own rhythm of healing. Alana’s foundation of hands-on touch is born from Esalen massage—her hands, heart, and breath provide slow, long, connecting strokes in tune with the unique needs of your nervous system. She integrates deep tissue, Thai massage, acupressure, reiki, and cranial sacral therapies into each session, listening to what your body and spirit needs most.

90 MINUTE SESSION | EXCHANGE $200

Alana Cain - At 17 yrs old I was on a professional ballet path when a serious injury derailed my dreams. I was told by the western medical field that I would never dance again and that major spine surgery was the only way.  My mother is a wise woman and that was the last interaction with western medical intervention. Amazing massage therapists at Esalen institute held space with pure knowledge of the body, heart and soul. During a long two year process I healed myself with the support of body workers who are now my mentors. I continue to dance and live life with a functioning happy body.  I received my first massage certification at 19 years old and have been studying bodywork ever since. I am influenced by healing modalities across the globe and am honored to provide a safe space for individuals to unwind their nervous systems and drop into the deeper rhythms of the self.

Deva Munay is passionate about the transformational power of sacred sound. In 1997 while on a 4.5 month pilgrimage Deva acquired her first sacred sound tools: two Tibetan Singing Bowls and a set of tingshas. During this journey she also learned the art of meditation, most notably while studying with the Dalai Lama for ten days after the Tibetan New Year in McLeod Ganj, India. From there she has studied healing modalities in Belize, Thailand, Malaysia, Nepal, Mexico, Europe, Guatemala, Peru, Bali, and Egypt. She incorporates this kaleidoscope of cultures and wisdom into her sound journeys to create a unified field of pure awareness and healing, which leave most in a state of wonder, awe and gratitude. Deva has a certificate in Sound Healing from the Globe Institute of Sound & Consciousness in San Francisco and a Bachelors of Science in Cultural Anthropology, Biology and Art from Southern Oregon University, as well as many certifications in the healing arts.

WITH MARILET PRETORIUS

Discover the symbols that relate to you and to where you are on your path. Explore a certain topic or be open to seeing what information presents itself during your personalized session. Embracing a grounded and non-judgmental way of working, Marilet intuitively accesses information in picture form, distilled down into shapes and symbols. Some of these symbols are universal and some are unique to you, the individual. What guidance and insight are you currently reaching for? These symbols tell a story—your story.

Additionally, Marilet offers custom-made artwork and textiles embedded with the symbols from your session. These pieces are personal talismans, ready to further impart their knowledge to you in a non-verbal and powerful way.

40 MINUTE IN-PERSON SESSION | EXCHANGE $180 Includes a sketch with the symbol(s) accessed during your reading

Marilet Pretorius is a strong believer in the power of shapes and symbols. Her work lies in the space where her art and spiritual practices overlap. Her offerings include workshops where she teaches creative methods, a textile line hand-batiked by women artisans in Swaziland, and one-on-one intuitive sessions where she accesses symbols and their messages.

Marilet has had years of training as a designer (Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, Boston Architectural Center, Art Institute of Boston, and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). She is a juried member of the California Society of Printmakers and a graduate of the advanced clairvoyant programs taught by Francine Marie-Sheppard, her mentor with whom she has studied over the past 10 years.
