A Plant Medicine Immersion at Posada NaturaENQUIRE
10 days, 9 nights of a truly holistic healing experience with specific focus on letting go of old patterns and reconnecting with your creative power. This program is designed to access ancestral memories, suppressed memories, and trauma to uproot the source of suffering. As an individual, you are given specialized attention from the facilitators depending on what you are working on.
