What we're about

We are a heart centered community looking to embody the bigger picture of love for ourselves and for everyone else through the practices of Shamanism/Curanderismo. We are also very blessed with the most beautiful souls. All our newcomers often tell us they feel instantly at home, with family. This dynamic allows everyone to open their hearts freely, so that the deeper reflection can begin.

Through these practices, we learn ways to journey and heal ourselves by releasing all that does not serve us and welcoming in all the parts that make us whole again. Our activities range from learning the ways of Shamanism/Curanderismo, working with Limpias (Shamanic Cleanses), working with herbal remedies, journeying through the different states of consciousness, sound baths, and more.

So if you're looking to grow with a community of love, laughs and sometimes joyous tears, come join us for our next event.
