Spirit Level started in 2019 as a series of holistic healing workshops for undocumented immigrants living in New York. These free workshops were bi-weekly practices that focused on addressing the lack of mental health resources available to undocumented immigrants who are impacted by the traumas of migration.
These workshops are taught collaboratively with healers from all over the world, including practitioners of acupuncture, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, herbal medicine, mycology, sound healers, and many other holistic and natural healers. Guadalupe Maravilla’s intention is to provide participants with much-needed resources about wellness and mental health issues, helping them to obtain long-term self-awareness.
Spirit Level’s intention is to share the knowledge of alternative healing practices, ultimately giving participants the opportunity to achieve balance in their lives after their migration, and encouraging them to share the knowledge with their communities. Now with the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial injustices in America Spirit Level will be focusing on serving everyone in communal healing.
