A limpia is an ancient practice, a ceremony of cleansing body-spirit with herbs and other elements. It is a sacred ceremony, with the support of herbs offering the body-spirit a way to release emotions, spiritual imbalances, and even physical illness. Cleansings are deep; they heal wounds that have become part of the unconscious. The limpia may take us into our underworld/unconscious to start the healing process/releasing of trauma, Ancestral wounds, childhood disconnection, colonial wounds, toxic relationships with self and the collective. Limpias help us release the Aires/wind/energies that have gotten stuck in the body. Join us for an evening to learn more about GuateMayan and Mexican Curanderismo principals for releasing, prayer, and increasing of psychic and energetic boundaries.
This class will cover:
-Understanding/practice of altar making
-Sparking on plant relationships
-Deep connection to our physical and spiritual
-You will get to do a Self-limpia ceremony
*Please do your best to prepare by hydrating your body and by taking time to clarify your intention for your self-limpia.*
