Collaboration of cultures – Babaylan Conference

Collaboration of Cultures


An unusual conference is taking place at the YMCA’s Camp Elphinstone Sept. 23 to 25 – a collaboration of Filipino and indigenous peoples, titled the third international Babaylan Conference.
Babaylan is a Filipino term that means shaman or healer and it represents the healing objectives of this conference, said JR Guerrero, co-founder and music director of the Kathara Pilipino Indigenous Arts Collective Society. Kathara showcases at the Surrey Fusion Festival annually, engaging audiences in a vibrant musical dance presentation that features inter-generational, mixed heritage artists.
