Payan Medicine offers immersive, intimate wellness workshops that focus on the path toward liberation through Indigenous Knowledges such as the Nahui Ollin and Black feminist theory to and defiantly Indigenize!
Guided by the ancestors, participants explore the power dynamics that negatively impact our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being inherent in our everyday existence. Together, we envision ways to dismantle these systems and replace them with inclusive, circular, shared, and mutually supportive structures. We seek common ground and negotiate knowledge alongside a spectrum of identities, beliefs, and learning styles, while fostering a collaborative environment (Ropers-Huilman, 1998).
*The term womxn includes trans women and non-binary folk.
All elements of our participants' journey are thoroughly taken into account, including co-facilitators, venue selection, wholesome dining, inclusiveness, and the range of activities. Our retreats have been thoughtfully arranged in diverse settings, spanning from the Arizona mountains and Costa Rican jungles to our very own Hacienda in Playas de Rosarito, Mexico (Chingona Retreats).
We would love to collaborate with you on a retreat at our home (Chingona Retreats) in Playas de Rosarito, Baja, Mexico. Want a workshop or retreat somewhere closer to your home? What does your heart desire? What does your community need? How can we collaborate?
