Recreate Yourself: Change and Elevate Your Story with Maestra Veronica Iglesias: Sat Aug 18 - Sun Aug 19

Veronica Iglesias, born and raised in Mexico City with Nahuatl ancestry from the states of Mexico and Puebla, is an advanced healer and medicine woman who has deep knowledge of the Nahuatl cosmology and indigenous Mexican healing traditions. In this Healing Retreat, Veronica will guide participants through the world of the feminine archetypes of Nahuatl cosmology and how to harness the energy of the archetypes for personal power and healing around sexual and gender-based trauma. The Healing Retreat will hold 30 participants, and we are specifically aiming to hold space for womyn, trans, 2-Spirit and gender non-conforming folks. 

We extend this offering to those who are seeking tools and guidance around healing from sexual and gender-based violence, especially if you are someone who works with people effected by this type of trauma, or need it yourself. Please share the retreat info & flyer with community members such as clients of HCC Network practitioners, members of local community-based organizations, etc. 

We are asking for a donation of $50-100 for the bountiful gifts that will be received at retreat. Participants must be able to attend both full days!

If you are interested in applying to attend the Healing Retreat, please fill out this Application to the Healing Retreat and we will contact you to confirm your spot in 2-3 weeks. You can share this link with clients or others who are not part of the Network that may want to apply.

We will also need some volunteer capacity for the Healing Retreat! The first day of the retreat will take place in Sebastopol (1.25 hours north of Oakland) and the second day will take place here in Oakland. We need volunteer support for both days.

  • Day 1 Set up (8am - 10:30am): 4 volunteers (could be participants down to come early or non-participants willing to come up to Sebastopol)

  • Day 1 Food & Logistics support (1 - 4pm): 4 volunteers (open to Core members & non-participants)
