Mayagüez, Puerto Rico
Well of Indigenous Wisdom School
Omaroti is a responsible practice in holistic health and wellness.
We focus on the sacredness of wellbeing through clinical herbalism, education and herbal medicines.
Well of Indigenous Wisdom school is located in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. We only accept local Puerto Rican Spanish speaking students living on the island, unless you are interested in our online school or advanced clinical mentorship program.
Well of Indigenous Wisdom school envisions herbal medicine as a modality that redefines health and healing through indigenous knowledge. It is a unique and rare program merging herbalism and the healing arts to bring forth understanding and empowerment to both the student and the client. The school focuses on all indigenous traditions from around the world. The curriculum develops WOIW's vision of being the well where a source of deep, nourishing, mineral-rich water strengthens and enlightens each and every existing cell in the body. As with each class, each sip of well water is coded with earth wisdom.
Why Indigenous Wisdom?
Indigenous wisdom is OUR wisdom. All indigenous people are descendants of a people of the earth, gatekeepers of sacred science and indigenous thought that never dissolves in its sacredness. Plants are our teachers, guardians and guides, they are our allies and spirit keepers. WOIW gives plants the opportunity to teach us how to remember who we really are, and to remind others of themselves. We must respect and honor our indigenous roots as we stand on the shoulders of elders and ancestors who in the plant and people kingdoms brought us this far. Indigenous wisdom asks us to be accountable for our actions on earth and for all life therein.
What does the training entail?
WOIW encourages those who seek mentorship, desire indigenous ways, seek intense, personable study in plants and healing to apply. The training provides students with access to their (often hidden) healing gifts, herbal medicine and concepts, hands-on practice, and the opportunity to learn with others of similar interest. WOIW serves as a vortex point that permits the student, as they become a healer, to dig within and speak, discover and share their stored indigenous wisdom. Students who wish to be fully certified for clinical practice, must complete the entire curriculum by attending each month of classes consecutively. Anyone can apply. There is no degree or prerequiste required to enter the program; except for an interview and a written application.
