Ritwal Na: Unfold a mystery of past, present and future ritual practices
Time & Location
About the Event
Together with Letecia Layson in Ritwal Na we will explore tools to activate/make a connection to the seeds of Filipino Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Practices (IKSP) that reside in each of us and to our Ancestors through ritual and the Babaylan Mandala.
The Babaylan Mandala can be used as a meditation tool for pagbabalikloob or return to Loob (Inner, True or Higher Self).
Join us as we explore ang Kahoy ng Kaluluwa (the Tree of Soul) and the importance of ritual to our lives in diaspora.
