I will be at the 1st International Babaylan conference at Sonoma State University 4/17-4/18 taking part of a Baybayin panel discussion and overview of the writing system. You can also see some of my latest art pieces.
We are passionate about the significance of the babaylan in our communities and world today and would like you to join us in bringing about this very unique and special gathering through your efforts and presence.
We believe in the power of the Indigenous Soul and the Indigenous World View, as embodied by primary/land-based babaylans in the Philippines and contemporary babaylan/culture-bearers in the Philippines and in the diaspora, to provide a narrative that restores a sense of wholeness, beauty, and integrity to our pagka-Pilipino.
In a world that aches for peace, justice, and healing from the violent effects of colonial and imperial histories, our Babaylan and our indigenous knowledge systems and practices (IKSP) offer a path to re-membering and remembering the sacredness, strength, beauty, and the creativity of our Filipino Loob.

The gathering will bring many.
This movement to learn-teach-share-exchange-discuss-quantify-qualify spirituality, a universal value in the world among people who live in harmony with the land. We will find balance as individuals and as a people whose heritage and culture have many lessons to bring peace, harmony, and justice to the world.
May we gather.
