What inspired you to hold women circles?
Some of my best memories have been in relating with the women in my life. Whether sister, mother, aunt, or friend, women-centric support is vital to engaging our natural state as women. I want to foster and cultivate this natural state by bringing women together to share, support, and celebrate one another.
Illuminate us with your gift, Who is Josie?
At the moment my most treasured gift is sharing the motto 'self healing is self discovery' and I do so through my brand Curandera Remedies. This is the platform I created to share inspiration, information, & products with anyone interested in the process of self healing. It is very important to share that our healing process is also the way to get to know, reconnect, & discover our true inner selves.
What are your Radiant rituals?
Oh rituals.... These are the moments during the day I get to stop and breathe deep... Lately the most important has been abhyanga massage (a warm oil, full body massage), it's an excellent way to connect to your body and stay grounded. Other daily rituals that keep me focused and feeling divine are simple like mantra, meditation, conscious eating, & tea/ coffee ceremonies.
Who and or What is your source of inspiration?
A constant source of inspiration are my students and clients. I'm filled with gratitude for their courage and trust.
I'm also forever inspired by the women who have come before me and paved the path for self expression like Sabina, Kahlo, & Modotti.

What is your self-care Ritual when the “pressure" is on?
I take a moment to do some mantra meditation, pranayama (breath work), and a spritz of gem essence floral water with rosewood essential oil. It's like hitting the reboot button.
