Friday, April 22nd, 1-3pm

Join us this Earth Day for a workshop and Q&A session with visiting author of Earth Medicines, Felicia Cocotzin Ruiz!

"Ritual bathing using flowers, herbs, minerals, and oils has been passed down through the generations in many traditions to spiritually purify, attract blessings, or give protection."

Felicia will be teaching us how to create a bath blend to nurture our spiritual and physical well being. We will be using a mixture of dried flowers and essential oils to create our ritual baths. Each participant will make 5 individual bath sachets. 

FELICIA COCOTZIN RUIZ is a curandera, author, indigenous foods activist, and natural foods chef whose work is deeply rooted in the healing properties of all earth medicines. Her business name came to be after friends lovingly called her "the kitchen curandera", as she was often creating healing foods and remedies in her tiny adobe kitchen.  

Her work has been featured in Food & Wine, Spirituality & Health, and on Padma Lakshmi's Taste The Nation, among many other platforms. Felicia lives with her husband in Phoenix, Arizona where she works with the sun, the moon, and the elements, offering medicine workshops and one-on-one healing sessions for her community.

WHAT IS A CURANDERA? Curanderas are traditional healers, who carry knowledge of foods, herbs, and other cultural remedies working with the body, mind, and spirit. In curanderismo, it is believed that disease can be caused by psychological, physical, and spiritual factors, creating disharmony of the body, mind, or soul. Curanderas help bring people out of that diseased state and back into harmony with various remedies and little rituals.

Curanderismo has been practiced throughout the Americas for over five hundred years, with each healer offering a unique skillset applying her natural gifts and training. Felicia’s own maternal great-grandmother was a curandera in northern New Mexico, where she caught babies, provided hands-on healing, and created herbal remedies for her community and family.
