Online Course Lead by Xochitlquetzalli and Shimshai
This training covers the core curriculum of our Ancestral Healing Arts and Curanderismo School. It is an online-only program over the course of 9 months. Note: We are working to adapt and flow with the limitations of gatherings due to Covid-19. If we are able to continue with in-person gatherings, students registered for this online-only program will have the opportunity to upgrade to the Advanced School if they would like to. This training is open for all of those interested in reinforcing and acquiring new knowledge in ancestral healing and the art of curanderismo. Through self-experience and guided teachings, individuals will refine their paths as healers and their service to the Creator, practice indigenous and ancestral healing traditions, and gain knowledge and experience in indigenous medicine practices. This version of the program is held entirely online over a 9-month time span.

This 9-month class will immerse all the participants in experiential healing through different rites of indigenous ceremonies that will help us deepen and navigate all the physical, emotional, and spiritual realms for a complete inner work, healing of our lives, and refinement of our intuition. We gather our spiritual tools and allies to step onto the path of healing and initiation.
We will be discovering and cultivating each person's own medicine and identifying their unique gifts. Then we support the process of each person stepping into their unique healing practice with experience, protection, balance, knowledge, and wisdom.
This 9-month online training is limited to 15 healers or curanderos. This will be a supported online training with live video meetings every two weeks, assignments in between, and a private school communication thread for sharing assignments, questions, and teachings. Recordings of our calls will be sent to the group to study and for those not able to be on the live calls. Song practices, journaling, experiential assignments, and more are to be completed between sessions. We will be joining together with students in the Advanced School for online teachings.
This course will have a small group of like-minded spiritual souls who form a healing community. Students will work together to support each other and complete assignments.
La Ventana Church will be issuing a certificate of completion in Ancestral Healing Arts and curanderismo after all the hours and training have been completed satisfactorily. This acknowledgment is only for the tools and practices discussed and shared in this course. Facilitation of traditional ceremonies, sweat lodges, and such rituals each have their special training, ceremony, and requirements according to each tradition and cannot be promised to anyone by La Ventana Church at this time as they require years of commitment and specific blessings from each lineage.
