My Cosmic Identity
My name is Xochi Quetzalli. Precious Flower, born of the hairs of mother earth. My abuela gave me this Nahuatl name. It represents fertility, beauty, & female sexual power. Patroness of Pregnancy, Childbirth, Flowers, Love, & the Arts. My cosmic identity of my 20 day time cycle is the Precious Flower.
Most the ceremonies and elders i work with have passed on their teachings thro oral tradition. In these ancient indigenous traditions, one learns these ways by showing up again and again, by helping out, & getting it. i have been very blessed to study with many different teachers. i am blessed in the mayan tradition to have NUMEROUS teachers and elders to turn to. Tho i was initiated into these ways and studied with 3 quiche mayan GRANDMOTHERS/Nanas. i am also blessed to walk with and work with a mexica-american Grandmother/Abuela that has taught me much about not just the mexica cultura but as well as leadership. I have learned from many elders of different traditions thro my commitments to my dances, Sundance and Moondance. and LASTLY, my visions, ETERNAL knowing,and Dreams guide me. I pray daily to my ancestors and the grandmothers walk with me, always guiding me.
I struggled creating this webpage. For oral tradition does not live on the web. Its first hand knowledge that is passed on in ceremony. Thus, how could i build a webpage that offers ceremonies? In today's western world, it seems everyone is doing it, yet still this was not a reason for me to go forward. The nanas in guatemala were clear that when i pray for people to come, they would come. And i trust this and pray, yet felt still something. Something that i could only feel growing up in this modern world and in my generation. That something was the need to connect the people and in the way the people knew best. Which today is over the web. Thus being from this young computer generation, here is my webpage in the most humble form i could make it. I am PROVIDING SOLELY information about the community ceremonies, personal ceremonies, healings, classes, birthwork, & artwork. There are no prices on my webpage. You cannot purchase anything here, just as you can not purchase spirituality. for clarity, community ceremonies are always free. Personal ceremonies are donation based. Healings are affordable. Classes are offered at a low income base. And as for my artwork, you can view it at my etsy shop for purchases. Truly i hope to not be stepping in the wrong direction by offering this webpage that offers just information. I hope it can be a place for those to go to or discover when they are searching to connect with themselves and creator.
I decided to name this web page Xochiketzalli because i needed to bring my offerings all together under one webpage. And my name i was given brings all my offerings back together, into one place. Here i bring my art and beauty, childbirth and pregnancy, and female power and the flowers.
I am of mixed ancestry. Native California Indian, Mexican, & a lot of European. I work in ceremony with many nations all over Turtle Island and walk the Good Red Road. I travel for ceremony and work with Nations all over the States, Canada, Mexico, & Guatemala.
I was born in Humboldt County and live now in Eureka, CA.
My Schooling has been Traveling the World and my teachers are in every culture i meet. I am very grateful!
I have traveled around the world, living and working for many years in Europe. Later i traveled in Asia for a few years and there started to make art. Finally i was moved to come home and here in the Americas i connected with my ancestors and found the Red Road. I started my art business Spirit Medicines back in 2008 and have ever since been creating medicine with my hands. I am very committed to the Red Road and thus been given different ceremonies by many of my different teachers and now offer them to my community.
