What is Babaylan?
“Babaylan is a Filipino word that refers specifically to an individual or a group of healers, mostly women, who were acknowledged by friends and family as possessing extraordinary gifts… having a gift of vision; an ability to see through schemes or situations and later advise on future plans… or the gift for healing; a specific touch or intuited or passed-on knowledge to specific processes of ‘fixing’ and ‘putting’ people and things together. The first priority of all Babaylan [is] her community.” — Carlos Villa
What Does the 3rd Babaylan Conference Want to Deliver?
The Centre for Babaylan Studies (CfBS), in partnership with Kathara Society, is organizing a conference near Vancouver where we focus on the conference theme of building bridges and interconnections with the original peoples of Turtle Island. We explore this theme through workshops, creative performances, ritual and ceremony, and educational opportunities where we can learn and connect with one another. Artists and cultural stakeholders will lead participants through different mediums of learning, to reflect and share stories, ideas and experiences that honour our indigenous roots, histories and legacies
IT’S GONNA BE LIT! See you there!
