Healing is a spiritual journey that connects us to the earth below and to the sky above. In North, Meso and South America, indigenous healing has been used for thousands of years to not only cure illness, but to provide purpose and meaning to the lives of both healers and those who are healed. These ancient ways are as relevant today as ever and help us to discover healing as a path to find our place in a mysterious universe.
Join us for this fascinating journey when you will be introduced to:
• Rituals and Ceremonies • Purification Through Heat (Sweat Lodge and Temazcal) • The Healing Power of Prayer • Music as Medicine • Herbal Medicines • Cultivating Personal Power in Nature • Indigenous Talk Therapy • Spiritual Cleansings
