The Scarlet Sage Herb Co.: Spiritual Bath Intensive w/ Lou Florez and Napaquetzalli
April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Herbal and magical baths are a powerful and effective tool for energetic cleansing, upliftment and spiritual communication/connection. We use baths as a key component to ritual and manifestation work to fully integrate our magic into our spirits and physical body. Spiritual bathing can take many forms and can be adapted with whatever one has access to.
Join us for an hands-on magic making class where we will discuss the theory and practice of sacred baths, the spiritual uses of water and plants, and how to mix them for specific purposes. Participants will be able to sample different blends and make a custom herbal bath/soak for their own unique intention.
Lou Florez (Awo Ifadunsin Sangobiyi) and Napaquetzalli share rituals and remedies from hoodoo/rootwork and brujeria traditions, come prepared to delve into some serious magic!
About the teachers:
Lou Florez (Awo Ifadunsin Sangobiyi) is an internationally known spirit worker, medicine maker, priest, activist, and artist who has studied with indigenous communities and elders throughout the globe. He is trained and experiences in hoodoo/Southern conjure, curanderismo/Mexican folk magic, as well as Paganism and European Witchcraft. He serves as Awo/High Priest of IFA for the Ile Ori Oakland temple. Lou grounds his teachings and practice in the idea that connectedness to ourselves and our physical, emotional, spiritual, and environmental landscapes is a fundamental necessity for any long lasting change to occur. He holds that through creating these living, dynamic relationships we become conscious of the inherent power available to us in every second of our lives.
Napaquetzalli is a queer Xicana/Indigenous herbalist and healer. Napa has studied both traditional Mexican curanderismo as well as clinical Western herbalism, with a passion for creating accessible and culturally relevant herbal medicine for the community. Napa is a co-founder of Curanderas Sin Fronteras, a collective that provides spiritual and herbal support for the Bay Area Latinx community and also works as an herbalist at the Scarlet Sage Herb Co. in SF Mission District. Their practice is rooted in helping others reconnect to ancestral and intuitive knowledge, as well as decolonizing our relationships to the earth, our bodies, and each other.
