Alquimia is a sacred space designed for delivering a unique learning experience, an intentional place where creative arts and healing are combined for self-realization and methamorphosis to occur. We encourage the expression of the inner truth through the physical and the spiritual, the uplifting of the mind as a clear function of a more profound connection with all the parts. We work with sacred plants, rituals and psychomagic reaching a state of being which allows us to comprehend the human experience in all its dimensions. We don't merely offer practical experience with plants and ancestral medicine, we focus our intentions on education and research on psychedelics, consciousness and indigenous cosmology.
We welcome you at Alquimia with a huge variety of courses and more advanced apprenticeships on alchemical preparations, Mayan medicine, ethnobotany, Herbalism, sound programming, Psychotropic Plants Diplomas, forest retreats and shamanic practices.
Our mission is to guide the individual towards self-realization and wholeness. We believe in Self-Healing and the shedding of unnecessary barriers between therapist and patient.
The creative arts encompass music therapy, psycho drama, creative painting, ritual dancing. As for healing arts, Alquimia offers phytotherapy, meditation, Prana Yama and martial arts on a daily basis.
Our goal is for the individual to undergo the transformational process which will lead to spiritual and physical homeostasis. We will also apply these principles to raising consciousness about one’s personal growth.
