This is the time of the Hunter’s Full Moon, the Day of the Dead, All Soul’s Eve, and Halloween. It is a special time, when the veil is thin. We plan to connect with our friends in the jungles of Mexico where they celebrate this time with ceremony, altars, and offerings.

We will create our own practice of sacred self care and, inspired by eastern thought and indigenous wisdom, will offer activities, knowledge, and opportunities for all to integrate, restore, and connect.

Tierraventura & Tierrasagrada

Claudia Schurr and Yves Chavan, Tierraventura & Tierrasagrada, retreats, tours, and workshops

We are Claudia Schurr (1967, sociologist, German) and Yves Chavan (1967, architect, Swiss).  We have lived in Oaxaca, Mexico since 1998.

We founded Tierraventura in 1999, to take people to places they wouldn’t see in the course of an ordinary vacation – places we consider to be the “real” Mexico. 

My passion and love is traditional medicine.  We work with shamans and healers in many different locations in Oaxaca and organize workshops on this fascinating subject.

Last year, 2019, we opened Tierrasagrada …..it feels like our evolution from adventure to sacred.

And the land of Oaxaca is truly sacred, it always fascinated me how the indigenous communities were still so connected to their land.

It is not only the use of healing plants, it is this deep connection with the elements, with spirit….

And this is our main subject at Tierrasagrada, to reconnect people with nature, spirit, the elements of earth, water, wind and fire.

Lorena Villanueva López

My grandmother was a curandera (a traditional healer) in the village of Villa de Etla, close to Oaxaca city. As a little girl I learned some of her healing arts but I never thought that one day I would follow her footsteps.

I studied law to be a lawyer and ended up specialized in human rights, I wanted to help people….My first job brought me to many indigenous communities, as you may know Oaxaca is one of the poorest states in the country with one of the highest percentage of Indigenous population.

It was there where I remembered my ancestral heritage, curanderismo, the ancient art of healing is still very much alive in the villages of Oaxaca.

So I realized that was my calling and I started to reconnect with my ancient knowledge.

Since more than 20 years I give my service as a holistic therapist (a curandera) working with body and spirit giving massages, ritual cleansings and workshops.

Together we are presenting an awesome Virtual Woman’s Retreat: Feed your Soul!
