Obsidian has been used by many cultures for thousands of years in a variety of ways. Everything from hunting tools to art have been found in archeological digs in various parts of the world. However, obsidian’s most notable use as a divinatory tool is rooted in the ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica. Over time and because of the conquests, these powerful mirrors used by the priests and seers of the indigenous people found their way into the hands if some notable occultists.
Obsidian mirrors and spheres can be much like keys to open doors, allowing us to peer into what is normally unseen. Once we enter the doorway and learn to navigate through the smoke, we have opportunities to gain insight into any questions we hold in our hearts, connect with ancestors, spirits and symbols that exist between the worlds. It can be used alongside other divination tools or standalone.
Obsidian can also be used to reveal and interact with the deepest parts of ourselves. This is more than what is known today as “shadow work”. This is the warriors journey of not only becoming aware of wounds that need healing but also the gifts that can be brought to the surface and fully embraced.
In this class we will discuss how to prepare prior to using obsidian for a divination or journeying session, things be mindful of, how to tether yourself, how to retain information you receive and how to close the doorways once a session is complete.
Obsidian is in not a stone of “gentle love and light” and requires a lot from the practitioner to tap into all it has to offer. The work starts with you and it is always a strong recommendation that this is considered as one starts to work with obsidian. Approach with respect and patience.
If you are interested in learning to connect with obsidian as a healing tool, please look at offerings on the calendar this quarter.

Lisa Martinez is a board-certified Doctor of Natural Medicine who walks the traditional healing and spiritual path of Curanderismo. This path can be described as a multifaceted blend of healing practices from the past and present that include indigenous folk medicine modalities from Mesoamerica to Africa and it strongly influenced by Spanish Spiritualism and Judaism. Her family roots are from Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado where curanderismo was and still is an enriching and common way of life. Lisa’s grandmothers were her biggest influences providing her a lifelong apprenticeship. These teachings lead to the development of sacred connections with plants, stones and spiritual practices that are used to help others in their journey to emotional, mental, physical and spiritual healing.
Private sessions with Lisa are holistic and intuitive in nature and are personalized to include the body-mind-spirit connection in conjunction with the cosmic energies, ancestors, santos, angels, and guides. Her therapies and modalities utilize a variety of traditional techniques such as platica (heart to heart conversation), body work, sacred plants, aromatherapy, dream analysis and use of obsidian to encourage and engage the body’s innate healing response. Her practice also includes limpias (spiritual cleansings) and end of life transitions.
Lisa is a registered Psychotherapist with the State of Colorado. She is a student of La Maestra Clarissa Pinkola Estés and has attended many years of her trainings via the Archetypal and Cross Cultural Studies Institute. She is also a participant of The International Collaboration of Indigenous Healers, Curanderos, Sanadores y Shamans which originated in the sacred mountains of the Tepoztlan Valley in Mexico.
When able, Lisa supports clinical sites and community outreach operations in collaboration with others in the Denver Metro area providing culturally based services and education.
