I am a practitioner of the ancient practices of Curanderismo and maestra (teacher). I come from the lineage of the Tewa Pueblo people of New Mexico and the native people of Mexico where I was born. These ancient practices have been taught uninterrupted through our oral traditions for thousands of years from parent to child and teacher to student. Some of the practices I share fall under the sacred body of knowledge of what some called Nahualism. The Art of I, The Spirit Within Me, The Limitless One, Creating the Highest Potential of Self. These teachings can help create a shift consciously in all areas of our life. Some of the practices can help us to command the movement of the day so that it doesn't command you. By using some of these practices along with modern day wellness we can empower and train ourselves consciously and subconscious to help manifest our vision boards, goals, affirmations, strengthening our bodies and help us create a life we dream of.
As a First Nation Ordained Minister - I am able to facilitate the ceremonies listed below. I have been given permission and initiated into these ancient practices by my elders and registered with the state of California as an ordained minister of First Nations.

The Medicine Bowl
A 6 Week Womxn Healing Circle & Embodiment Experience (Online & In Person Options) The Ofrendas Sagrada (sacred offerings) are teachings I created from the ancient practices of my lineages combined with modern day wellness. The teachings cover the sacred elements, the 4 sacred directions and the sacred plants used for healing, manifesting and clearing during the cycle of the moon and sun. We will take a brief look at the Mexhika Tolteka Dream Warrior practices of manifesting and healing.
These native and Mesoamerican sacred teachings have been passed through our oral traditions for thousands of years from parents to child and teacher to student. With permission I share them with you in this sacred container. We will sit in sacred circle and learn how to use them to ignite your intuition and to find more embodiment and joy in your every day life.
We will come together each week in sacred circle via Zoom to discuss each Embodiment and how you can apply these practices/concepts and teachings to our own daily lives and even pass them on to your family and community.
The Ancient Practices of Curanderismo - Platicas & Limpias
The following offerings are done in person located in the East Bay Area of Northern California.
(Heart Centered 1-on-1 Sacred Talks with Energy Clearing/Cleansing) What mainstream calls Sacred Talks and Energy Clearings my ancestors call them Platicas(sacred talk) and Limpias (energy clearing). Platicas and Limpias have been a part of the native indigenous culture of the South Americas for thousands of years. It is practiced with the understanding that mind, body and spirit are connected and should be treated as a whole. Generally speaking it is a blend of healing modalities that is a collective of the Indigenous people of Mexico, Spain, Native Americans, Africans, Judiac and Carribbean traditions.
A Platica a sacred talk, is a way for you to use your voice and verbally tell your story from your heart about what you seek to release. The practitioner will ask you questions to guide you on your journey. Platicas are always followed by a Limpia and Limpias always have a Platica before they are given.
"Limpias,"are a way to clear or rebalance your energy centers we call Cueycueyos simular to chakras. We use several tools and ceremonies to guide the limpia and each session is customized to the person seeking the limpia. No two Platica-Limpias are the same.
Because the medicine is an ancient practice Platicas & Limpias are always done in person. I service the East Bay Area un Northern California and can be booked for special events or traveling for an additional cost.
