Healing the Healers

Guest teacher Rocío Alarcón of The IAMOE Center, Ecuador

Teaching in person at Heartsong Farm 
Spaces Still Available! 

August 30th to September 1st 2024 

Join us for a weekend of rejuvenation and celebration with Rocío Alarcón. This special event takes place in person here at Heartsong Farm in beautiful northern NH. 

Together we will cleanse, strengthen, and empower ourselves so we can return to our families and communities renewed and ready to be a force for good in the world!

What a great pleasure and honor to host Rocío, sister of the heart, here at Heartsong Farm! Powerful teacher, ethnobotanist, and skillful healer, Rocío Alarcón brings the indigenous wisdom of the Andes Mountains and the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. 

Rocío offers the gift of using simple but powerful healing practices incorporating the power of the plants into our daily lives and for special healing ceremonies. The healing practices are designed to raise our vibrational level and promote health.

All are welcome, and we especially invite the healers that have studied with Rocío before and have a longing to take their learning deeper. We will use the rituals and ceremonies to heal ourselves, each other, and bless and heal our earth.

This treasured weekend with Rocío takes place during the time the luscious apples will be hanging from the branches. Rocío has a strong healing connection with the apple trees and will lead us in using the trees and apples as part of our healing practices.
