I am a Peruvian born modern medicine woman, mama, and artist living in Southern California. Since a very young age I was one of those kids who could see beyond what we traditionally see and could hear all sorts of "spirits." I became very close to my indigenous roots and was attracted to everything natural and the spirit of everything natural. I began studying alternative healing at just 19 years old thanks to my spiritual guidance, as I was always aware that something was tremendously wrong but couldn't quite put my finger on the full issue. Traditional counseling didn't work for me, and I refused to start a life depending on pharmaceuticals for anxiety and panic attack disorder as it was contrary to my natural believes. So I began studying massage, aromatherapy and art, and in my late twenties studied reiki, yoga, holistic nutrition, expressive arts therapy and shamanism, mainly for survival and self-preservation.
As I dove deep into the world of shamanism and indigenous Peruvian healing (my native country's ancestral healing traditions,) I began to feel much healing and release from some childhood trauma and overall anxiety. However, after my daughter was born in 2016, I had a deep, intense spiritual experience for a total of 4 months and all my suppressed memories of childhood sexual trauma came to the surface. These were terrifying memories I had dissociated from and still caused me to have severe panic and fear out of "nowhere." At the same time as the resurfacing of these painful memories, I was going through some major life changes. I was a mess. And I needed help. I intuitively knew that everything I had studied had led me to that point, to burst, or to what mystical traditions call a Shamanic Awakening or Death. It is when you die of everything you thought you were and are reborn to the real you.
Shamanic ways of healing are effective yet intense and painful, and thanks to a friend, I turned to cannabis and hemp derived CBD because I needed to function, be a mom, and make a living all while going through some serious changes and healing. And my life truly did change, and continues to do so in inexplicable, sometimes hard, but beautiful ways. The Cannabis family of plants helped me and continues to help me heal all the trauma I had repressed, it helps me connect spiritually in ways I didn't think possible, and it helped me accept my current life circumstances, and gifts. It helped me open my heart to a path of healing...of being a healer, an artist, a mother, a lover, and working from a place of truth and compassion. So now I pay it forward, and that is exactly how SANA (heal in Spanish) CANNA came about.
Everything that led me to my own healing I share with you. It combines my love for nature and natural healing, my years studying alternative healing and art in California, Paris, France and NYC, and several regions of Peru, my years working with children with special needs, my indigenous based spiritual practices, and my love for the Earth and all it's inhabitants.
