Babaylan – name given to the healers and shamans, wisdom culture keepers of the Philippines.

Several years ago, I found a link online for a program called BEAM, Babaylan Emerging Apprenticeship & Mentoring.  When I visited the Philippines in 2000, I ran across a group from Bahay Nakpil in Quaipo, and happened upon a copy of a book by Dr. Teresita Obusan, entitled, “THE ROOTS OF FILIPINO SPIRITUALITY”.  Interesting, interesting, interesting stuff.

Recently, I found this link:

Exciting!

And then, Dr. Leny Mendoza Strobel (http://kathang-pinay.blogspot.com) will be releasing a book on Babaylans at the end of the year according to PAWA, and a conference is slated to occur in 2010!

More excitement!

From kathang-pinay, I learned about KAPWA 2 Conference and found the “blogs” of various groups in the Philippines.  Check out the pics!  It’s an adventure and revelation to a “Philippines” I feel very happy to encountering at this moment!  I even saw Pin@y devotees to Krishna in Pampanga and elsewhere!  WOooooOoOooow!  Lovin’ it!
