About the Workshop:
Join us for an exciting 2-day workshop series designed to teach you how to release stress, bring mental health, and integrative wellness to everyday life with essential tools and practices of the 4 elements, Indigenous teachings, & the 4 Directions.
Our Sanando con los Elementos workshop series are intuitive sessions and guided by Spirit and ancestors. They will be following the teachings and protocols taught by elders of Mexica, Maya and Q'ero Nations.
Over each engaging session, Vero Diaz will cover topics like: land connection; moon, sun, earth practices for overall wellness; restoring inner balance; and caring for our mental health, and cultivating emotional harmony with the elements: water, air, earth, and fire. During each session, two different elements will be discussed.
You’ll be able to connect with others, share experiences, and learn from each other!
