Maraming Salamat Po!



Maraming Salamat Po!

Maraming salamat sa inyong pagdalo sa nakaraang Buhay BABAYLAN  Lecture-Ritual pinamagatang “Tinig ng Babaylan” noong Enero 19, 2013 sa Bulwagang Tandang Sora, College of Social Work and Community Development, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

Nawa’y sa ating pakikiisa sa araw na iyon ay napalalim at napalawak pa ang ating kaalaman at pagsasabuhay ng diwang Babaylan at kalinangang Pilipino.

We hope that you can continue to reflect on the knowledge and stories shared by our resource person, Grace Nono, and able to embrace more of the diwang Babaylan through the ritual facilitated by Baylan Undin (with Robelyn Canto and Grace Nono) in a space blessed by the presence of elders, teachers, students, musicians, healers, cultural creatives and each of the 300 or so inquisitive and engaged participants of the event.

Maraming Salamat Po!
