Hi, I'm Cindy, a Peruvian-American writer, producer and storyteller who is taking her once solo spiritual self-care routine–drawing from her family’s indigenous traditions and journalism background–and sharing it with the world.
My relationship to nature began in Peru. I would spend summer or winter breaks there with my mom. Peru was all she talked about all year long: what the mercados near my Tia’s house smelled like, finally being able to walk around barefoot near the river, and the smokey smell that enveloped our house on my grandparents land –– what I learned as an adult was palo santo burning.
Creating safe spaces for WOC, especially my fellow Latinx community, has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn't until I took my younger cousin hiking that I realized I could do just that out in nature. That was about 3 years ago and ever since I've been leading spiritual hikes and retreats by way of Reclama. It means ‘reclaim’ in Spanish. Nature and journaling have helped me reclaim parts of myself I was convinced I lost or didn't know existed.
Sharing this part of my spiritual self-care has helped me see my purpose in this world. Guiding women into nature who didn't always feel seen in the outdoor space or see how their energy shifts after a hike reminds me that I’m serving my purpose.
