Sacred Grove Gatherings: 2019 Renewing and Recreating with the 4 Sacred Elements. Two 2-Day Workshops

IMG_1186Renewing and Recreating: 2 Mesoamerican Healing Workshops on November 9-12, 2019 in Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Nahuatl priestess and well-known Mexican healer, Alma Estrela Santiago Martinez is returning to Ontario this November to share more of her wisdom and healing . Alma is a linage holder of ancient Mexican traditions and a trained psychologist (from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico).  She shares her knowledge of the feminine healing tools using the four elements, cycles of the moon, obsidian and crystals.  She was trained in the traditional ways of healing by her grandmothers from Tenochtitlan, Veracruz and Oaxaca. Alma and her husband Xolotl (a Nahuatl linage holder) are devoted to sharing Nahuatl knowledge and wisdom. They live in Mexico City.

Again this year, Alma will be giving two 2-day workshops that will provide wonderful opportunities to help us with our own healing through renewal and re-creating ourselves.  Alma will help us to learn unique, enriching teachings about healing tools and techniques.  As a special addition to this year’s workshop Alma will be joined by her husband Xolotl (Jose Luis Chavez Martinez) who will be bringing the profound added feature of traditional Aztec Dance. We will be experiencing the teachings of the Ancient Wisdom of Mexico. He will use  the dances of the 4 elements to enable us to reconnect with the diverse forces of the elements in deeper and more significant ways, faster. Xolotl and Alma will introduce us to the power of the Cosmic Dance to enable us to partner with the creative energies of the universe and embody the 4 elements that form the substance of each of us and of our world. Under Xolotl’s leadership we will have the opportunity to experience the elemental dances such as as the Fire Dance. This is a very special opportunity – first time opportunity in Canada- to experience these traditions and reconnect to this wisdom with both Xolotl and Alma together, receiving teachings from authentic Nahuatl lineage holders.

These workshops are true, long lasting gifts to yourself:

Workshop 2 – Recreating Yourself with the Sacred Forces of the Elements of Fire and Water, Monday and Tuesday, November 11-12, 2019

Xolotl is an expert and a professor in the Nahuatl tradition, culture and languages of ancient Mexico. His Nahuatl name is Xolotl – the good of fire and light and the twin of Quetzalcoatl. Xolotl is the founder and chief of the Thunder Clan-Tlatlatzinc, a group of traditional dancers promoting the ancient traditions of the Mexhica people of Mexico The use of the dances of the 4 elements will enable us to reconnect with the diverse forces of the elements in deeper and more significant ways, faster. Xolotl and Alma will introduce us to the power of the Cosmic Dance to enable us to partner with the creative energies of the universe and embody the 4 elements that form the substance of each of us and of our world. Under Xolotl’s leadership we will have the opportunity to experience the elemental dances such as as the Fire Dance.

Alma’s work focuses on teaching practices and enhancing awareness of how to raise the frequencies and aligning the various bodies, so that all the fields come into balance and health.  Energy healing promotes healing by enhancing energy flow and correcting disturbances in the “human energy field” or “aura” which permeates and surrounds the body. Improving the flow of energy in the energy field supports the self-healing capacity of the body.

In these 2 workshops Alma and Xolotl will help us to connect with the deep wisdom that comes from integrating the knowledge of nature but enhancing our deeper connections of the forces of  the four elements to bring these all together to help you create harmony,  organized energy, and balance within yourself and your surroundings, to help you on your path to be who you are truly meant to be through renewal and re-creation.

These teachings are based in the lineage of the THE ANCIENT TOLTEC. This is an ancient Mexican tradition of mastery of the mind and a cosmology that views the universe as alive and interactive. The elements of air, fire, water and earth are the cornerstone of life. Each element is vital toalma and the water fall our very existence. Without just one of these elements all life on earth would cease to exist. Indigenous people around the world have always honoured the four elements as ever-present allies.   Our ancestors likely did so as well. The elements are tools and provide insights and direction individually and collectively.

Xolotl and Alma’s workshops will provide us with the opportunity to reconnect, remember, understand our relationship with these cornerstones of life. These 4 days of workshops will include practices and knowledge to connect in deeper ways with the elements.

Energy healing is a technique that can help us make definitive, protected and wise changes in the body.  Special techniques use the immeasurable wisdom passed on from those who have been on this planet for thousands and thousands of years.

Learn what past participants say about Alma and Her Workshops: 

“I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to have met Alma through the Crystals Healing Workshop. As an Indigenous women I immediately felt a connection with Alma and her communities healing practices. The similarities with my Indigenous knowledge was heart-warming.  Over the 4 days of intensive healing work I felt the transformational  energy that Alma has, not only through her treatment methods but also through her love. She brought a community of women together, with the help of a wonderful translator Marisela, and she made us feel proud to be women. She spoke openly and honestly about our role as women. She allowed us to experience our own individual strength and inner knowing. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to the next healing workshops and learning in a gentle caring space with Alma. Nya:weh Gracias Alma”  Paula Laing,  Six Nations of the Grand River.


“Alma Santiago is the real deal. Being in her presence and having the rare opportunity to learn from her with her infinite wisdom accompanied by her humour, her true desire to teach and pass on her knowledge is indeed a gift. Life changing is not an overstatement.

I count myself among the truly fortunate people to have had the blessing of meeting her and attending her workshops. Her teaching was supported by the flawless translation skills of Marisela- an amazing duo!Do not miss the opportunity to attend workshops/ and to have a private healing with Alma Santiago.” Cheryl Pettifer, Ontario


“It is with excitement, that I anticipate Alma’s second visit to Ontario (September 13 – 16). I was hesitant about taking her workshops in September 2017 because of a perceived language barrier and I was uncertain if I would learn more about the elements or crystals. To my pleasant surprise, what I learned goes much deeper than the workshop topics. I learned how to honour myself and my path as a confident feminine healer and release the constraints of other’s beliefs and misconceptions.”
Roxana Roshon, Ph.D. Nurturing Your Inner Garden

” I came to Alma’s workshop because of what I had heard about her and out of respect for Nahuatl traditions. I hoped to learn how to get inner strength to carry out tasks I have set myself.  Alma’s workshops have warmth and colour and an energy that extends and envelopes all participants. I came away with understanding that I have depths of inner strengths to call on and that I do not have to do this alone. ”  Clare Devlin, Ontario


What others say about Alma and her teaching:

“I am truly blessed to have studied and worked side by side with Alma for the last five years. She is a gentle healer that provides ancient wisdom for healing that is practical and simple to incorporate into your personal life or the lives of family and friends. I have used her healing with nature techniques and have witnessed amazing results for healing of physical and emotional issues and have seen the energy exchange from the crystals accomplish deep healing. By attending Alma’s workshops she will help you to remember your innate healing abilities and how to apply them in a kind and gentle way. ” Antonette Gutierrez, Ozomacihuatl, California


“I am so happy to be going to Alma workshop in September.  I met her in Mexico when  I was taking  one of Sergio Magana’s courses.  Alma was teaching us  about the feminine side of ancient Toltec healing.  Alma is one of the top healers in Mexico and I’m honoured that she has chosen to come to Canada to share her teachings.  So excited!”    Janet Schnurr, Ontario.


“I met Alma Santiago 3 years ago during her first workshop in England and she impressed me so much that I attended all her workshops there since then. She is a living embodiment of the ancient wisdom she teaches and of the sacred feminine energy. Although Alma’s workshops are very practical, I’ve learnt not only healing techniques from her but also her attitude to life. A workshop with her is a life changing event in many ways. And fun as well!  And most importantly (for me at least), Alma is a sweet, loving, happy and very powerful woman whose deep insights and personal advice have helped me a lot in healing myself and some areas of my life. ” Judit Vass, Hungary.
