Curanderismo immersion in Oaxaca, Mexico!

Coming up soon, in January of 2016, we will be holding our third curanderismo workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico.   This is a very special opportunity to be immersed in the medicina tradicional, the traditional medicine of Mexico.  This workshop is led by esteemed Mexican curandera, and author of Nuestra Medicina, Estela Roman, and Atava Garcia Swiecicki from Ancestral Apothecary.   We will also spend time with well loved elder curandera and midwife Dona Enriqueta Contreras.   We have a few spaces left for our workshop, so please contact us for an application.

We reached our fundraising goal!

Thank you to everyone who helped to support our fundraising efforts through Kiva Zip.  Kiva Zip offers 0% loans which are funded by community.  We successfully reached our goal of raising $10,000 to support the growth of the Ancestral Apothecary school. We highly recommend that you check out Kiva Zip and help support other small businesses to achieve their dreams!  A little loan can make a big difference!

Support the growth of Ancestral Apothecary school!

We have until November 28th to raise the rest of the $10,000 loan to help us establish the Ancestral Apothecary school of herbal, folk and indigenous medicine.
