About the event

Medicine Festival is a registered Community Interest Company (C.I.C). All profits will go to help empower indigenous peoples to preserve and protect their land, traditions, and wisdom.

Our vision at Medicine Festival is a world where nature is cherished, peace is revered and difference is celebrated; where humankind has reclaimed the gifts of gratitude, reciprocity, and guardianship for all life.

Medicine is about interweaving communities and bridging cultures – wisdom keepers, indigenous communities visionaries, artists, and solutionaries of all traditions to inspire and ignite a deeper understanding of how we can tread lightly, and live harmoniously as we support each other in the creation of the world we want to see – an equitable and thriving world.

What can you expect?

A Temazcal is an ancient purification ceremony and key part of Mexican traditional medicine, representing the ‘Womb of the Earth,’ offering nurturing energy that connects us to ourselves and Mother Earth. This ceremony focuses on community healing, adapted to participants needs. Led by Ahau Samuel and Robyn Leonie, founders of Root of the Gods - Ahau is a Native Mexican Chichimeca who has dedicated 14 years to studying and sharing traditional Temazcal. This ceremony is conducted using herbal steam, drumming, song, guided breath and deep introspection, with respect for native roots whilst bridging them to heal the modern heart and mind. Root of the Gods is a community project integrating ancestral earth wisdom into everyday life through ceremonies, retreats, courses, and a natural pharmacy. Together, we create places where we can ALL come together and remember.
