about soluna medicines

ritual | art | community

soluna translates to sunmoon in Spanish. soluna stands as a symbol of connection to Latin American indigenous wisdom and the ever present universal symbols of light -- the sun-- and dark -- the moon -- within human history. Whether you join a soluna space for a retreat, ceremony, circle, art performance, or party.. it is all medicine. Together we are returning to an all inclusive spiritual wholeness that welcomes our need to grieve, to celebrate, to create, to connect with nature, to know others, and to be known. We welcome all who are seeking freedom and harmony for the self and for all. We welcome the creative, revolutionary beings that want to participate in shifting our culture towards higher wellness and quality of life for all.

Meet Your Guide

Hello, sweet one. I’m Chantelle—friends call me Chan. I am a spiritual and emotional well-being teacher, medicine woman, and multimedia artist. Under the name soluna medicines I host retreats, mentorships, celebrations, artists experiences, kambo and plant medicine ceremonies, and a podcast. I consider myself a shepherd of the dawn. I find all who chose to engage with soluna medicines work to also be stewarding the new earth and remembering the old ways. I walk the Beauty way.. carrying teachings from time spent in Buddhist monasteries, kirtan trainings, gathering teachings while backpacking Peru - Mexico - Thailand - Nepal -- Colombia -- Costa Rica+, bio-regional herbalism apprenticeships, 1:1 work with medicine mentors, and more. I also hold a degree in Psychological & Brain Sciences from Boston University.  In the summer of 2021 I completed an apprenticeship with ayahuasca where I helped facilitate over a dozen ceremonies, brew the medicine, learn how to sing & work healings in ceremony. I walk life devoted to love. I am always learning how to allow change, enjoy life, open my heart, follow my dharma, and play my role in healing my ancestry -- kind of like you.
