Cleansing and Clearing with our Plantcestors through the Rebirths of Life with Tania Romero
As we acknowledge rites of passage and transitions of life, we honor the duality energies of life and death that they hold. From our ceremonies of birth and coming of age, to the continuous rebirths of life, they serve as opportunities for personal and ancestral healing where we can allow ourselves to be held by our plant allies. Our Indigenous tradition of limpias (‘cleanses’) teach us the role plants can play in holding healing space, while helping us clear what is no longer needed.
In this workshop, we will hold a conversation about the traditional use of limpias and participate in a collective demonstration of how they can be integrated into our lives. We will explore the energetics of fresh aromatic plants as tools to “sweep” away energies that may be stuck in our bodies. You will have the opportunity to tap into your own healing and nurture a deeper connection with plants.
Please bring a cushion or pillow and/or blanket to sit on and stay warm since this workshop will take place outdoors. Also, please bring a sacred object that represents ancestral healing for you.
