Embedded in Indigenous communities around the world is a shared wisdom about surviving and thriving in everyday life — as well as in times of crisis, turmoil, or danger.
Within these ancient and still vibrantly alive traditions is curanderismo — healing, or shamanism.
You can draw on the wisdom of the ancestors to prepare plant medicinals to heal your whole being — mind, body, and spirit.
When you ritualize your life with these ancient practices and Indigenous plants, herbs, flowers, and fungi, you can move into a greater state of health and wellbeing. You can live a more grounded life — physically, emotionally, and energetically.
