Creating Consciousness Episode Description
In today’s episode of Creating Consciousness, we are joined by the amazing Malia Luna. Malia is a ceremonial tattoo artist who uncovered her abilities during some of her deepest healing. As she dove deeper into her work with tattoo and tattoo as medicine, she had a strong remembrance for this being a transformative and shamanic practice.
Although Malia’s ceremonies have taken many forms, her work has always honored that we are in constant co-creation with Spirit. Malia combines plant medicines, energy work, and sound and vibration in all her tattoo ceremonies. In this episode you will learn more about Malia, her healing and spiritual journey, and her tattoo ceremonies. I might also get share my personal experience with Malia and her work.
