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