Sky of the Heart Preserve


The Sky of the Heart Preserve is the home of four traditional healers, two men and two women who have been initiated as mara åkames after years of apprenticeship in the Huichol medicine path. We hold that: 

Our sustainable future is rooted in traditional indigenous wisdom. To be fully human is to live from the knowing of the heart.

As initiated healers ( Mara åkate ) we promote the re-emergence of the sacred in everyday life. We cultivate awareness of the common heart through connection with all our relations - both seen and unseen.
