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.

Cacao Ceremony & Sound Bath

Templo de Flores

$15.00

Join us, as we traverse through the various gateways of the heart with the aid of the Cacao spirit, and ancient Central Mexican Indigenous wisdom. We honor this month, Tecuilhuitontli, and focus on expanding Abundance and Reciprocity on all ideal levels. Ancient Central Mexican indigenous peoples engaged in celebrations wherein people exchanged flowers and mutual expressions of good fortune and well-being on this month. The sacred beverage of choice at these calendrical feasts were, of course, cacao (cacahoatl in Nahuatl). We start with shamanic breathwork and meditative journeying to begin to welcome the many gifts of the great spirit of the cacao, and observe ancient indigenous beliefs and meanings of this sacred month and feast. Once we cleansed and revitalized ourselves with shamanic breathwork and this sacred brew of cacao, everyone will be able to lie down and receive the healing vibrations from a 45 minute sound bath. The sound bath will include crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, gongs and medicine songs providing a lush soundscape for deep meditative journeying and melodies to open the heart. In this ceremony, you will: • Connect with the spirit of Cacao and welcome in all of its many gifts • Receive vibrational healing through sound baths and icaros (medicine songs) • Engage in shamanic breathwork 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 chakras with a meditation oil • Explore Ancient Indigenous wisdom and traditions What to bring: • Yoga Mat • Blanket (optional) • Eye Mask (optional) Preparation: • Light lunch/dinner RSVP: [masked] (please email to reserve your spot and cup of delicious cacao) Prosperity Investment: $15 Soundscape Facilitator: Miguel Buenaflor, Conscious Musician Miguel has performed medicine music in over 100+ various shamanic ceremonies in the Yucatan and in the US.
