From the sacred energy of ancestors manifesting in various forms to the deification process of esteemed forebearers, Erika delves deep into the heart of ancestral veneration.
In this episode, Erika unveils the rich tapestry of curanderismo, from the profound trance journeys and sacred gardening rituals to the art of ancestral altar-making and the path of Nepantla spirituality.
