Join us for the teachings of the Andean/Inca Cosmology and Intentional Creativity Painting, integrating the teachings onto canvas. This workshop will help you to learn new or different approaches to dealing with stress, consider what is most important in your life today, and learn about another culture's view on life.


Angel will be share teachings on the Chicana, the 7 pillars of life based on Andean Cosmology, and will finish with a Despachio Ceremony. These sessions will also include Munay meditations and shamanic breathwork.

Margie will follow up with a video taking Angel's teachings onto the canvas. This is a way of further deepening and  integrating the information being taught. No previous painting experience required.

Paula will be leading dance as a part of the live zoom calls with Angel. Movement of the body, its muscles and joints is an integral part of health. Dance will be free form, no previous experience necessary.
