OUR BESTSELLING TOURS

A DAY OUT OF TIME

A day out of time as you know it, totally immersed in nature and learning about the authentic Mayan culture, away from the crowds and the internet.

Forget about the fast, fully packed tours, this is a tour like you never experienced before, where you are part of the picture rather than looking in and taking the picture. It’s a day of healing, relaxation and spiritual guidance where you can share with beautiful people from a culture many know so little about....

The tour takes place in a traditional Healing centre in the jungle,  owned and run by the Mayan people. Upon arrival you will receive a Limpia ( an aura cleansing with sacred copal) and you can have a traditional shamanic healing, a tour of the extensive "Living Pharmacy" medicine gardens and a traditional Temazcal ( Mexican sweat lodge).

During the tour there will be time for resting, socialising, listening to the birds and walking around the gardens.

Indigenous Ceremony

CURANDERISMO

A Toltec Medicine Tour

The art of curanderismo is the unique Mexican tradition of healers which goes back many thousands of years and has become richer and richer in cultural diversity throughout history. 

A curandero/a is the local shaman that heals people with powerful indigenous rituals and arcaic practices, at times mixed with Christian relics and mysticism unique to each individual practitioner. 


On this journey you will immerse yourself in the beautiful mountains northeast of Mexico City, surrounded by forest and wildlife, learning with a keeper of the Nahuatl tradition.

The tour includes a Limpia upon arrival, a healing session, teachings with the curandera and a Temazcal. There will be time for integration, for quietude and rest, for a walk in nature, and in the case of a 2 days tour, for deepening the learning and the practice with the healer. 


                The Curandera

Columba comes from a lineage of healers and she is a gifted herbalist, as well as a dedicated social and environmental spokesperson. Columba has the gift of clearing negative energies out of people and places and is very respected for her healing abilities and spiritual integrity. Born in Veracruz, which is known as the area of the witches, Columba has lived and worked in the state of Mexico and in the Yucatan. She also travels regularly in Mexico and abroad to speak at herbalism conferences. 


               The Healing 

Like all curanderas, Columba uses very unique healing methods. After scanning the patient, she makes a diagnosis and proceeds to clear out any negative energy from the physical, mental and spiritual level. Her sessions are powerful and truly transformative. 

She then offers guidance and advice moving forward, as well as prescribing specific treatment when needed.  



               The Temazcal

The Temazcal originated in northern Mexico, in the Nahuatl tradition and was then embraced by all Mexican cultures. It is a traditional sweat lodge that provides a truly unique transformative  experience. Through a ritualistic sweat you shed the old skin, purifying and liberating your physical, mental and emotional bodies. Our personalised Temazcal offers privacy and a safe, intimate space for a perfectly tailored shamanic healing journey. 

This Temazcal differs from the one in the Yucatan because it connects to the sacred energies and language of the tradition of the Nahuatl people. 


               The Teachings 

This is an interactive time of hands on learning with the curandera, about her specalism in energy work, herbal medicine and spiritual wisdom. Be open to the unexpected  and let the experience come to you. 

Working with wisdom keepers like Columba is different every time and for everyone, because every person is there to receive exactly what they need.
