Traditional practices in the healing arts.
Our programs weave together a variety of healing, spiritual and mental health practices, which work cohesively to achieve an experience of profound, integrated healing. Our goal is to create a balanced and grounded experience for each person while undergoing the intense and deep healing work that happens here. Our methods are based on traditional lineage practices and led by highly trained practitioners and facilitators.
Meditation is training in awareness and mindfulness. The practice of being still in the midst of mental activity allows us to study ourselves and gain insight into the depths of who we truly are. Meditation encourages us to study ourselves intensively, so that we may know our minds, what our patterns are, where they come from, and how we can rewire to create new, positive, healthy patterns. Meditation teaches us to be present, rest in what is, fully engaged in the here and now.
Temazcal is a Native American sweat lodge ritual that rids the body of toxins through sweating and renews the spirit through ritual. Temazcal takes place in a circular, dome-shaped structure that represents the womb, symbolizing rebirth and purification. Within the Temazcal, red hot rocks are placed on the fire, and participants experience deep release and catharsis as they sweat and pray.Our facilitators are trained in traditional Nahuatl and Lakota indigenous traditions and have facilitated hundreds of ceremonies.
Yoga is much more than exercising the body. It is a practice to connect our body with our breath in order to deepen our inner connection and experience meditative states. It is a moving meditation that re-directs our minds towards awareness of the present moment. Our yoga practice focuses on establishing embodied connection to oneself. We aim to facilitate nurturing and supportive experiences to relieve emotional, physical and mental suffering. Clarity, inner peace and presence are the outcomes.
Sound has been used across cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. The intention is to move us to a place of balance and connection. Our sound healing techniques utilize tuning forks and Tibetan and crystal singing bowls that are tuned to high universal vibrations that mimic the healthy frequencies of the cells in the human body. The vibration of sound can be tangibly felt. The effects can produce dream like states of consciousness.
Breathwork is a type of therapy that utilizes breathing exercises to improve mental, physical, and spiritual health. It draws from Eastern practices like yoga and Tai Chi while incorporating Western psychotherapy techniques. The goal of breathwork is to strengthen the connection between your body and mind, promoting relaxation and mindfulness. It is proven to support multiple aspects of physical health, including lung function, blood pressure, and brain function.
Panchakarma is a collection of combination of Ayurvedic practices that correct imbalances in the body by encouraging the elimination of harmful toxins out of your system. Ayurveda is based on the needs of the individual, depending on their Ayurvedic constitutional type, doshic imbalances, age, digestive strength, and immune system. These healing procedures include body work, massage, nutrition, and spiritual practice. Not only is the treatment process we offer at Posada Natura deeply cleansing, it is also a very pleasurable and rejuvenating experience.
Our work with plant medicine is facilitated within traditional lineage practices. This ensures the ancient knowledge of correct preparation, conduct and facilitation for successful healing and safety. The wisdom of healing plants and nature opens our hearts to the love within us, allowing the release and healing of traumas stored in our bodies. Through this experience we observe our mental and emotional patterns, behaviors and traumas, which in turn allows us to heal our bodies, minds and souls.
