ABOUT

This is the first time ever the Zagas are sharing their wisdom online. The Mamos have done so before but the Zagas are even more reserved. It is an honor for us to host them. 

Zagas or sagas are the female equivalents of Mamos, spiritual leaders from the Teyuna people of the Sierra Nevada of Colombia. 

Teyuna means ‘Thinker of clear thoughts’, the spiritual father of 4 indigenous groups: Wiwa, Kogi, Arhuaco, and Kankuamo. 

Zagas are much more than just leaders.  A Zaga is a Priestess, a medicine woman, a botanist, a midwife, a massage therapist, a weaver, a storyteller, an adviser, a seer, a diviner, a musician, and an Elder. They represent the Light in the darkness. They hold the Ancestral Wisdom for future generations. They move and behave in alignment with the rhythms of Nature. They are the Healers and hold the keys for the Water, the Earth, and the Air elements. And because of this, the Zagas have the big responsibility to sustain the Planet. They are the weavers of knowledge to store Wisdom. Zagas represent the Moon and are the rulers of time and cycles.

They are multi-dimensional bridges that communicate freely with the other realms and are able to translate messages from the different kingdoms in Nature, as well as interpreting messages from dreams and the signs written in the landscape by Gaia.

Future Zagas are chosen by divination when their mothers are pregnant and undergo their training from birth. Zagas play an important role in the community, they are responsible to guide and educate the girls during the different rites of passage in life such as a girl’s first menstruation, giving birth, etc. They are teachers and advisers for their communities.

In this course you will learn to:

  • Approx. 6 hours of wisdom, sacred pagamentos (offerings) and healing practices

  • How to receive wisdom during the sacred time of one's moon cycles (menstruation), which is a woman’s biggest power.

  • How to heal the womb from trauma imprints

  • Feminine Sacred Places in nature and how to make offerings

  • How to connect with the Water

This was the best course I truly have ever taken in my life. It allowed me to understand the perspective of the Zagas which then allowed me to fully understand the sacredness of my feminine power. I believe in the west we are often times forgetting to honor our sacredness of the feminine, we are made to believe that things such as our periods are "gross" but in reality it should be honored. If the west lived by the same perspective as the Zagas we would live in a society in which values our woman instead of tearing them down. Overalll this was an amazing course and would love to learn more from the Zaga community. Thank you so much for allowing me to take this course, so much love for the aniwa community.

This was less a course than a divine ceremony yet the most holy people I have ever come across. I honestly was taking in the most beautiful energy during the entire course that the content meant little to me. In the first few hours especially I was in a visionary state of bliss. Thank you so much for offering this special special opportunity with the Zagas. I saw the Mamos several years ago in New York. Someone had asked why there were no women at the panel. The Mamos replied that the women were so sacred and had no need to communicate with outsiders. So then I was under the impression that I would never ever have the experience of connecting with a zaga! Again, my whole life has changed because of being part of this journey. Such living light beings are a joy and divine privilege to see and hear. Many blessings to the Aniwa team and the sacred, one of a kind worn that they do.

I have been so blessed to be able to attend with Aniwa has been of perfect timing. It is difficult to put into words how these affect me, but the experiences fluctuate between a humble exhilaration that comes from being shared this sacred wisdom for the first time, and an almost certain knowing of "coming home" to these teachings that can be deeply, and uniquely, emotional. They have each been an essential part of my personal growth and spiritual flowering, but this one in particular, at this pivotal (and often difficult) time for the feminine, has been extraordinarily healing, powerful, and special. I will add, what an incredible use of spirit, technology, community, and pure will of all involved at Aniwa and all of our Indigenous elders and family that have wholeheartedly and willingly come together to offer these blessings and teachings at this time. These are connections that I have always longed for, but the travel, time, and/or finances are not always approachable, yet they have made it possible for those of us that feel the call; and we are still able to directly support everyone involved. What a precious, divine gift.

So much gratitude for this beautiful sharing of knowledge and utmost love and joy from the Mamos and Zagas. I could feel them deep in my heart all the way from Taiwan. As I was listening to Day 1's recording, and the first time the Zagas started dancing, tears came streaming down my face with no resistance. They were tears of release and tears of joy all at the same time. It was such a treat to watch the sacred way they are in their beings, and cherished this connection you all at Aniwa gave us to experience this sharing of love. Thank you for all that was shared and I look forward to connecting with my Womb and the Water more deeply.

This course was really deep and strong. So much knowledge coming from the Zagas, was really special first of all, understanding about their perspective about the feminine, and the sacredness of a woman when they bleed, to their culture. Also, really honor to be able to learn their pagamentos and being able to bring to my life this ancestral knowledge. Im really glad with this class, was really powerful, and with so much love. Thank you dear Zagas and Aniwa.
