Dana Cafe is a monthly gathering in Oakland California offering transformational teachings at no cost to participants. Each month on 1st Sunday Dana Cafe invites different social change educators, teachers and facilitators from various arts and healing traditions to lead a session.  Our monthly classes are offered for Dana (give as you able and inspired) and there is no set fee to attend.

On July 6th, Brenda Salgado (Center Director of East Bay Meditation Center) will be teaching on Harmonization with Roses, wisdom she received from Grandmother Amalia from Xochimilco Mexico, during the Festival of Traditional Medicine in Mexico where she is a student and volunteer translator. Grandmother Amalia is a skilled curandera, healer and a fierce defender of Sacred Corn, indigenous medicine and the wisdom of her ancestors. During our workshop we will be connecting with the healing medicine of roses, by:

1. Learning how to make rose water for personal use
2. Learning how to do a "limpia" or personal energetic harmonization with roses
3.Learning how to work with roses to do an energetic cleansing of your home

If you are able to, please bring a small jar with lid (8 oz jelly jar is a good size). I will bring a few just in case someone forgets theirs. Each participant will leave with some rose water to take home, and a handout on the information presented.

About Brenda:
I am first generation Nicaraguan-American, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am grateful to my parents and my ancestors for instilling in me the values and teachings that have led me to cultural, spiritual and social justice work. My ancestor lineage on both sides of my family includes members who practiced traditional medicine in Nicaragua, though much of this medicine was lost to more recent generations in my family. As an adult, I have received training from elders in Purepecha traditional healing, Xochimilco traditional healing with roses, and herbal medicine and ceremony from various teachers here in the U.S. and in Central America. I extend deep gratitude to my ancestors, elders and teachers for their guidance and support on this path. Through Nepantla Consulting, I provide healing sessions, workshops and officiate ceremonies. I founded Moons Rising Circle, which meets on the New Moon and Full Moon every month in San Leandro, and helped to found First Wednesdays Healing Circle, a project of Unity San Leandro that provides free healing services once a month (pranic healing, reflexology, limpias, EFT, limpias, etc.
