Women of the Mesa

Trujillo, New Mexico

September 4 - 9, 2018 $175


Join the students of PrairieWise Herbal School on a journey quest to the great mesas of the southwest.  First, we camp on an amazing mesa face at about 6700 feet above sea level. It takes some time to adjust to the altitude and the wind that can blow constantly. We have herbs to help both before we leave and while there. We honor many cultures throughout the weekend.  We will construct a plant mandala from the local plants and weave a web that holds us tight as we explore our inner selves.

Trip Itinerary

day 1 (September 4)

Group arrives and sets up camp. Camp responsibilities assigned.

day 2 (September 5)

Acclimation Day – We start with breakfast and a talking stick then head to Las Vegas (NM) for shopping (herb shop and local artists), lunch and a dip in the local hot springs by the Gallinas River and, then, back to camp. Bring your swimsuit.

day 3 (September 6)

After breakfast, we head to the wide open field, lush with local plants.  Many forms of Indian paintbrush grow here and while we do not make internal medicine from these plants, we certainly will co-create with them in our mandala and in ceremony.  The afternoon will have classes chakra energy, a bit of drumming and other areas of interest to the group.

day 4 & 5 (september 7-8)

These days will alternate by the group number you are assigned to after registration.  One group will work with Pam & Annaleah preparing for their sweat lodge that evening; there is much to be done in preparation.  The other group will be with Regina and Kahla, cooking a feast meal and making camp safe for the sweat participants. Then, on Saturday, we switch it up.

day 6 (September 9)

We gather on the mesa at sunrise for talking stick, then, breakfast and our farewells.  This is a travel day back home.
