Rosita Arvigo

Written by Flora, Posted in Announcements

Join us for this rare opportunity to study with Dr. Rosita Arvigo at the October 10-12 Herbal Conference!

Rosita-Photo-2014-webThe quest for the treasure of the Belize rainforest is Rosita Arvigo’s magnificent obsession. She believes that if she could locate and train with a natural healer trained in the old ways, she could begin to unlock the knowledge that would help people the world over regain their health. Like most great adventures this is easier said than done and often takes half a lifetime.

Dr. Arvigo has lived among the Maya in San Ignacio, Belize for the past thirty-five years. For thirteen years she apprenticed to the most famous Maya shaman-healer, Don Elijio Panti. Not only has Rosita’s life’s work kept Maya medicine alive, but she has been instrumental in cataloging and preserving thousands of healing plants and trees of Belize through her work with Dr. Michael Balick of The New York Botanical Garden and the Belize Ethnobotany Project which ran from 1987-1996.

She is also the author of six books on traditional healing of Central America, co-founder of The Belize Ethnobotany Project with Dr. Michael Balick of the New York Botanical Garden, international speaker, founder of Ix Chel Tropical Research Centre in Belize, founder of the Rainforest Medicine Trail, Terra Nova Medicinal Plant Reserve, children’s Bush Medicine Summer Camp in Belize, recipient of The Earth Award, 2007, founder of The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy and courses in Maya Spiritual Healing.

Skirting the spiritual has had a shattering effect on every dimension of contemporary existence.
