Curanderismo: Sacred Smoke and Purification


Join curandera Grace Alvarez Sesma on Saturday, May 30 through Sunday, May 31, 2015 in Nederland, Colorado for a dynamic weekend of learning, laughter, and sharing.

The Earth is our first mother and our first altar. Living in a grounded way, with our feet on mother earth and our hands to father sky we honor our elders. Standing in the center of the medicine wheel — the navel of Mother Earth — we are able to access the wisdom of the four directions, and learn how to connect with our inner source of wisdom, and the wisdom of the Four Grandmothers in order to be of service and live our sacred purpose.

We will be reviewing the materials discussed during the Introduction to Curanderismo module, learn and discuss the meaning of the four and seven directions in accordance with pan-indigenous philosophy, and review and work with the Mesoamerican Ethnoanatomy energetic model, as well as build a group healing altar.

Since Spirit guides our time together some topics/subjects may change once we gather in circle. Details and instructions on what to bring will be mailed upon registration. This class is open to beginners. Two partial scholarships will be available once the class registration minimum of 9 people is reached.

Tuition: $175. Registration is limited to 13 people so reserve your space before the deadline of May 1, 2015, by sending an email to and requesting a registration packet.
