Not only did Abigail impart the self care knowledge, but she went above and beyond to teach us and opened me up for more learning. Thank you for the time, knowledge and love shared! –
Abigail’s many years of experience as a homebirth midwife and intimate knowledge of the female body profoundly informed her understanding of these ancient Maya techniques and her ability to teach this work with great depth. She is grounded in an incredible amount of knowledge of human anatomy and physiology that is woven with a palpable reverence for the wisdom of the shamans, curanderas, and midwives of the ancient Maya who used this abdominal therapy to treat many diseases and imbalances. Abigail fully embodies this wisdom and is passionate about sharing this knowledge with other women and healers. As a woman and a midwife, I found this workshop invaluable and am eager to continue to learn this healing tradition and integrate it into the care I give. –
Abigail’s delivery of the material was a powerful blend of science and spirit. Coupled with her rich experience, I learned a lot. –
I just took the most amazing weekend long workshop with Abigail. The course was Arvigo Self Care. We are lucky to have Rebirth Holistic here in Pasadena. Abigail has studied with Rosita Arvigo to learn Mayan Medicine.
In the course Abigail shared with us her breadth of knowledge and wisdom about Mayan Medicine, women’s anatomy and physiology, self massage, castor oil pack application, and flower essence bathing. It was a very elevating experience to be in a small circle of women being taught by such a knowledgeable, big hearted and warm midwife. If you need women’s care, or desire to be an active participant in your own healing partnership I highly recommend calling on Abigail. I am so glad that I did! –
Abigail is a seasoned teacher and has a wealth of information and resources. She uses a wide variety of teaching modalities to explain and test for understanding. She has an easy going and delightful presence and presentation that makes the learning fun and interesting. –
Abigail transmits Rosita and Don Elijio’s wisdom with great integrity and care. Her positive energy is comforting and inspiring. Her knowledge and experience is vast. –
