The Quero Apache Snake Clan, or Tlish Diyan, center their spiritual practice on the daily ceremony of Doowaa-gon’ch-aada, “entering the silence.” A combination of meditation, breathwork, and prayer, Doowaa-gon’ch-aada offers an experiential connection to All That Is from the Earth-based spiritual traditions of indigenous America. When performed properly, this ritual becomes a path to self-realization and transcendence.
