El colectivo Shonqu Yuya
Ancestral ceremony from North America and Mexico used to pray, cleanse and purify. In this sacred sauna, the medicine of the elements, chants, medicine drum and medicinal plants combine into geometries of transformation that bring memory, harmony and alignment to body and spirit. The sweat lodge geometries that we received and share are from the Lakota and Mexica tradition (inipi and temazcalli).
Shonqu Yuya. Is a colective of art, music & healing dedicated to the creation of spaces for the transformation and reconnection of the spirit. Having our fundaments rooted mostly on the Red Road indigenous tradition, we use different tools as medicine music, plant medicine, therapies, artistic expresion, ceremonies and conscious events that aim to hold space for the awakening of the heart essence. We have participated in gatherings and movements like Consejo de Visiones, Ser Agua, Boom Festival, Ometeotl, Cosmic Convergence, Tajin, Voodohop - collective and many Sun Dances, Moon Dances and Vision Quests in different parts.
