This seminar and healing journey is for students and practitioners who work within the healing modalities. It is designed for practicing healers and those who have deep interest and/or background in Curanderismo, herbal medicine, and/or other indigenous and spiritual healing practices. Our intention is to create a space to advance the knowledge and skill of those already committed to a spiritual and indigenous healing practice and path. Although it is a deep healing journey and may come with challenges, our main purpose is to provide support, healing, and restoration to the body, mind and spirit.

The focus of this trip is to allow participants to immerse in a total restoring healing journey into the mysterious land of the ancestral Zapoteca and Mixteca world. Participants will enjoy the restorative benefits of several healing practices including ceremonies in the Temazcal, herbal baths, spiritual cleansings, dream-work, healing/restorative massage, healing foods and more.

Participants will engage in activities related to the understanding and practice of the Zapotec and Mixtec wisdom as well as spending a portion of the trip with the great Zapotec Curandera, Enriqueta Contreras. The program will be carried out in different regions of the valley of Oaxaca, including visits to ancient markets such as Tlacolula and Mitla. When visiting the sacred sites of Mitla and also Monte Alban, it will include activities for relaxation, rejuvenation and restoration. This journey will deepen our understanding on the practice of the different forms of healing in the Mexico Profundo.
