Healing Methods

Here are some of the healing modalities you can partake in:

La Limpia

This is the Andes' traditional energy cleansing ceremony. It is used frequently to maintain good physical, emotional and spiritual health. It is performed whenever people get sick, are emotionally distressed, depressed, have bad luck in relationships, business or work, or for any other misfortunes that arise in their lives.

La Limpia is a physical and spiritual purification system. Each of the elements and tools used carries a spiritual symbolism and scientific reasoning. Its aim is to clear and balance the egg shaped energy field (illuminating body) surrounding each of us, and the physical body.

Our energy field can get contaminated by our life's traumas, memories, attachments, connection to ancestors and negative energies. It can also be polluted by entering into negative geographical locations, or by energy sent intentionally or unintentionally to the person such as anger and curses, through envy, bad air, and by energy attachments and spirit possession. Negative energy is heavy, so if it's not removed it can sink into our skin, and then penetrate deep into our tissues, organs, and bones.  Shamans believe that this contamination is responsible for all sicknesses and misfortunes. Clearing or extracting these old and negative energies brings in a new surge of positive energy, which allows for new clarity, and for a true healing to take place. 

What to wear:
The transformative and powerful cleansing ceremony is performed using the blowing of Trago–sugar cane rum alcohol, fire, smoke, oils, rubbing of eggs, tapping of flowers, herbal plants and other sacred natural elements. Hence, traditionally no clothing or very minimal dressing is highly recommended (underwear/shorts, bathing suit). It allows the skin to better absorb the healing essences and to discharge negative energies. However, you can decide to dress according to your level of comfort. Either way, please wear comfortable and loose clothing.

Taki Sami
