Drawing from North and South American indigenous traditions, participants will experience simple yet powerful ceremonies which can have energetic and spiritual impact on the addictions recovery process. Ceremonial principles important in the recovery process, such as the power of intention, cleansing the energy field, and trusting Spirit will be discussed. We will meet at the Cieneguilla Petroglyph site, so please bring hat, water, hiking shoes, rattle if you have one, an offering for Mother Earth (tobacco, cornmeal, lavender, etc.), and a small blanket to sit on. Expect to hike approximately a mile uphill on a rocky trail. Directions to the site will be emailed upon registration.
