13 Jan Herbal Bathing
Limpieza (cleansing) is a deeply healing and sacred ritual enfolding plant work with prayer. This ancient and noble lineage of elemental purification has been kept alive throughout the world’s spiritual and ancestral traditions. This work gives participants the opportunity to connect with the energies and spirits held in the land and waters of Lake Concow, dispelling dis-ease, revealing and refreshing your true self. You will be guided through a traditional herbal bathing ritual preserved by the Mayan Curanderas (healers) of Belize Rosita Arivgo and the late Ms Beatrice Waight, while integrating newly emerging remembrances of our own ancestral lineages. In learning how to approach the plants, each woman will create her own healing bath, using both locally wild-harvested and traditional Mayan bathing herbs. As we create our altar at the Water, we will sing traditional spirituals and Afro-Brazilian songs together, creating a blossoming of our healing intentions, self-love and beauty, emanating them into the world as a gift of praise for the Holies in Nature.
