What makes us special....
"My daughter and I met Cinzia during our trip to Tulum last week. Cinzia has the kindest most authentic energy I have ever encountered. Cinzia did not ask either of us questions about our lives prior to the healing session and yet for both of us the healing was completely in alignnment and resonated with our lives and experiences. Our healing sessions although scheduled back to back were completely different and individualized, I was amazed at Cinzia's deep intuition and ability to connect with our soul without words. Cinzia conducted the session in such a loving way, spoke eloquently about the healing and gave post healing suggestions. I could not have been more impressed with level of skill and professionalism of our experience. I highly recommend Ixchel Healing Arts Studio and Cinzia."
"How to put into words my experience On the Footsteps of the Goddess in Tulum. All I am left with is a feeling. The feeling of completeness and wholeness within my heart. All of my worries and fears have gone away, I feel confident and at peace in my body, all the time, not just in certain moments. I have an unbreakable certainty within my entire being. Cinzia/Swift Raven is a gentle, confident guide whose wisdom and connection to spirit allows for a truly Divine experience. Her knowledge of the areas that we explored offered an aspect of ease because she can speak the languages and she knows the territory well. The women that gathered for this experience, from all parts of the world were in complete harmony from
the start. We only spent 5 days together but it feels like we have know one another our for a lifetime.There are not enough words I can say to describe how positive my experience was. I just feel immense gratitude, appreciation and honour to have experienced the magic of the land with Cinzia and our group. If you are drawn to the land of Ixchel, gathering in sisterhood, healing and rebirth, shamanic practices for modern humans, or experiencing a life changing experience, then the retreats and experiences that Ixchel Healing Arts creates are for you."

"Cinzia and I crossed paths on my search for a massage, it didn't take long to realise it was her that I needed to see. I was interested to see what a Shamanic Healing was, for me, it was quite amazing. Her energy and pure intent shone, I felt comfortable and at ease with her, knowing I was in good hands.
Tears flowed, my mind was full of colours, shapes and patterns which she could decipher for me, my body seemed to lose all the tension it had tightly held.
I learnt a lot about my past, my spiritual journey, what I could do to assist me "shining" instead of staying "small", had confirmation of life directions, and actions that were beneficial to others. It was quite an experience to have a healing of a throat issue which she physically felt while doing the healing.
She urged me to push on with a creative project close to my heart and actually Cinzia is a part of a much bigger picture I hope. Thank you Cinzia, you are a very special lady x" Adrienne, Australia
"Tulum Holistica jungle resort proved to be the perfect base for us, to rest and nourish our bodies with delicious healthy food. Each day we visited important sacred sites and under Cinzia's gentle guidance we felt the sites come alive, connected to ancient energies on the land, made offerings to the ancestors and learned about the Mayan calendar.
We spent a night with an indigenous mayan family living in the jungle, where we received lots of love and hugs, learned about the local medicinal plants, while being part of their daily life. We participated in a powerful fire ceremony and sat in the womb of Mother Earth - in the Temazcal. It's hard to put all these profound experiences into words, but they changed us, enriched our lives and much more. Thank you Ixchel Healing Arts for helping us to raise our vibrations"

"I arrived in Tulum from San Francisco with no sleep and an episode of mercury toxicity from the plane. On the second day, I still hadn't slept and felt terrible. A new friend recommended Cinzia, who came to my AirBnB within hours. The healing, the Mayan flower tincture and homeopathic remedies she offered made an immediate difference. Such wisdom, such love, such a kind woman. Before the healing I wondered if I should even follow through on plans to retire in Tulum, but afterward there was no question. For health, for spiritual guidance and for general well-being, my highest recommendation!" Morgan, USA
"I had a very interesting, informative and professional tour of Coba with Swift Raven. Her command of both English and Spanish is superb. And her knowledge of the culture, history and archaeology is unique. Having lived with the Mayan people for years, Swift Raven understands their culture as only an insider can, and she brings the living experience of her shamanic training and practice into her tours and teachings. We visited a Mayan community where the ancient ceremonies are still carried out, and the current of ancient energies still makes its presence clearly felt. There is a strong tradition of healing with herbs native to this region, and many unique healing methods are practiced by a small circle of highly trained Mayan initiates. The special feature of Swift Raven's tours and teachings is that she lives and practices the Mayan traditions as she learned them while living in the remote villages where the wisdom is passed down from generation to generation, complete with initiations and secret ceremonies. I would highly recommend Swift Raven's tours and teachings to anyone interested in a deep and authentic experience of the Mayan world, both ancient and modern. "
"In Search of Magic.
When I read the introduction to the Shamanic adventures in the land of Ixchel
I was not sure what to expect. It sounded intriguing:"It would be an opportunity to travel with a small group of seekers like me, connecting to the ancient energies of the temples, the wild energies of the
jungle and the sacred waters, learning the ways of the Toltec warriors, honoring each other's ancestors and blessing the land where we walk."
We were all women of different backgrounds, ages, and corners of the world, but we connected right away and felt like sisters. Cinzia was a patient and well organized guide and introduced us to the ceremonies, people and surroundings with great respect and reverence.
It was a privilege to be part of this group and I felt blessed to have had this magical experience. Thank you, Cinzia. I can't wait for your next sacred adventure. I would feel honored to be part of it. With gratitude"
" The wisdom of Swift Raven and Ixchel Healing Arts Studio have been a great asset in my journey to forever, subtle in form but deeply profound. The teachings have helped me root out the blockages in my consciousness and develop the tools to clear them. A benefit not only to me, but also to my community, my tribe and I've realized that I too am a healer, and the best thing I can do for others is to be all of me. Swift Raven will help you find You "
