Offerings

Below is a list of offerings that I currently offer to community. If you are interested in hosting me please send your inquiry via email.

All workshops can be facilitated in Spanish, English or Spanglish. In addition they can be adjusted to fit the needs of the community. Examples of past workshops, events & trainings can be found here

Intersectionality matters, therefore traditional healing practices from communities of color may not be shared to prevent cultural appropriation.  

Update: Workshops will not be offered again until Fall of 2019, however consultations are still available.

REcordar y recopilar

An introductory course to dream practices and their plant allies. The dream world is a sacred one, it is a place that can bring much healing & connection to ancestors if one decides to do the work with intention. This workshop combines meditation, creative expression, self-guided interpretations & medicine making.

SExual ASsault & Dreams

A workshop created for survivors & advocates of sexual assault. Folks who experience PTSD from sexual assault are more likely to have a more challenging time with sleep and all matters of dreaming. Healing happens at its own pace, is non-linear, varies from survivor to survivor and requires the understanding that not all dream practices or plant allies will resonate with folks. In this space, we will engage with one another through storytelling, will have a chance to interact with plant allies and folks will be given a zine to take home that contains supplemental information on plants, dream practices & sexual assault resources.

The intention for this workshops is the reclamation of one's ancestral knowledge  & sacred healing practices through embodiment.

This workshop is NOT a : 101 workshop on sexual assault & rape culture, support group or therapy session. *If these are the needs you and/or community seek please send me an email. 

 
Flowering Salvia apiana

Dream Consultations

I provide consultations for folks that seek extra support in their dream practice. Interpretation will be guided & not given as I believe in the agency of the individual and always center my work on empowerment. These are provided on a sliding scale basis, are totally confidential and can be done in Spanish, Spanglish & English. Herbal recommendations may form part of the consultation if desired.

Folks can inquire by email with subject line 'Dream Consultation'.
