Limpias Y Conectando Con Las Emociones

Traditional Healings with Herbs and Connecting with Emotions


Date: Friday, June 21st

Time: 10am – 2pm, limpias to follow

Cost: $80

Teacher: Laurencio López Núñez translated by Margarita Camarena

Limpias (Spiritual Cleanses) have been used in Mexico for hundreds if not thousands of years. Limpias vary in use, purpose, and state of the person and what is available to the Curandero or Curandera (indigenous/traditional healer). The gift lies on the power of the Curandero and Curandera to use his or her creativity with what mother nature produces for us and honoring the support Mother nature gives us. A limpia is a practice in which the Curandero or Curandera brings the multidimensional aspects of us back into harmony. Our thoughts, our pains, or emotions, and worries are looked at to find the unresolved trauma that has not been fully integrated within the individual. The use of plants, candles, Copal smoke, Mezcal, musical instruments, and prayer are part of the Limpia sessions. A limpia is a non-invasive approach where the person is talked to with sincerity but in a non-judgmental way and treated with deep love and compassion to bring in healing. The sessions are also accompanied by what might look like “synchronicities” from nature. They are truly magical should you decide to arrive fully into the healing process. 

We are complex beings living in a complex world during a time of extremes in the Bay Area. Our emotions have become complex, mixed, and blended into a fog and funk. Some people walk through life living like this making this their new normal. But you don’t have to live with these heavy emotions anymore. Truth is, we don’t know what we carry until we don’t. This June 21st, we have the rare opportunity to learn from of the most gifted master curanderos of Oaxaca, Maestro Laurencio López.  Maestro Laurencio will teach about the limpia ceremony and how it can help release emotions like anger, grief and fear.  This is a chance to learn helpful skills to care for yourself, your family and your community. You will learn to create your own “Limpia Kit”, so that you may go home and be able to do a limpia on yourself whenever you need it. 

After the workshop, Maestro Laurencio will also be offering his traditional Oaxacan limpia sessions. This is a beautiful healing as well as an incredible and inspirational experience. The limpias will be held off-site and are not included in the price of the workshop. Please email us at to sign up. Suggested donation of $25.

The class will be taught in Spanish and translated by Margarita Camarena. I hope you can join us for a an educational healing experience. See you there!
