Drawing from the healing traditions of the Andes and the Northern Peruvian coast (Curanderismo and Paqokuna), Jeff will officiate a session of Sacred Healing, Divination and Empowerment. Sacred tobacco will be used in sacred ceremony to help participants awaken their inner capacity for insight, healing and wisdom.
