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 in Altadena and the surrounding areas. 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.

Join us for a bliss-filled evening as we honor the spirit of the Cacao tree. This ceremony will be an opportunity to de-stress, rejuvenate mid-week, and spoil yourself with love. Cacao, Theobroma (aka Food of God), figured into pre-modern Maya society as a sacred food, sign of prestige, social centerpiece, and cultural touchstone. Around Chiapas, residents prepared the drinks as offerings. It was said that because the people enjoyed it, they knew their gods enjoyed it as well. In this ceremony, you will: • Connect with the spirit of the plant and welcome in all of its many gifts • Receive vibrational healing through sound baths, icaros (medicine songs) and chanting • Engage in Ecstatic Breathing that focus on an area of the body & the benefits of working on this area of the body • Stimulate the Olfactory System, body and corresponding Chakra with a Meditation Oil What to bring: • Blanket (optional) Preparation: • Light lunch RSVP: [masked] (please email to reserve your spot and cup of delicious cacao) Soundscape Facilitator: Miguel Buenaflor Miguel has performed medicine music in over 100+ various shamanic ceremonies in the Yucatan and in the US.
