This is why women's work is so powerfully rooted in their offerings. They have opened possibilities for women that have seemed impossible for many years.
Hukena has been trained in many deep sacred plant diets and over the last years she has been travelling across Brazil and Europe leading women healing circles and spiritual ceremonies.

It also carries its own force and wisdom, the strength of the Umbanda tradition, which follows the line from her father, the main Pagesanto. Dominique has the gift of beautiful space holding, joyful dancing and amazing singing.
