Ethnotherapy Trip Mexico 2018
Dates of the trip
From July 29 to August 15, 2018.
The ethnotherapeutic journey offers an experiential work that combines traditional indigenous medicine, shamanism, modified states of consciousness to deepen our being and immerse ourselves in the heart of Mexican civilization.
We propose an intense journey to the heart of Mexican civilization to deepen, investigate, explore, even learn various traditional therapeutic teachings through participation in different shamanic rituals. The tour will allow to flow, rediscover and enrich the spirit. A unique experience based on personal work, the wealth of the group and the discovery of the country. We will approach their people and their traditions to receive their great ancestral wisdom. Seminar by Magda Solé, transpersonal psychologist and psychotherapist, and Jaume Mestres, transpersonal coach. Experts, both, in Mexican Shamanism and in general.
The trip is organized into four parts or itineraries in the states of Veracruz and Oaxaca:
The Gulf Sea: It begins in the colonial city of Veracruz, a melting pot of overseas beliefs.
The Rainforest: We will let ourselves be embraced by the depth of the jungle and the immensity of the Catemaco lake located in the region of the Tuxlas, of great shamanic tradition where we will perform ancestral rituals.
The Sierra Madre: We will share indigenous wisdom in the Sierra Mazateca.
The Central Valley: In the valley, we will discover the colonial city of Oaxaca.
