Join us for the 2-week summer class, Traditional Medicine without Borders: Curanderismo in the Southwest and Mexico on the UNM campus, July 16-27.
Currently in its 18th year, this popular class brings healers from New Mexico and Mexico to provide information on the history, traditions, rituals, herbs, and remedies of Curanderismo, a folk healing tradition of the Southwestern United States, Latin America, and Mexico, amongst other countries. The course takes an approach in exploring how our ancestors used traditional healing methods, how they have shaped our cultural diversity of yesterday and today, and what the future of this medicine might be. The course features teachings for a number of rituals, which include: intestinal blockage (empacho), spiritual cleansings (limpias), laugh therapy (risa terapia), shawl alignments (manteadas) and preparation of medicinal teas (tes medicinales).
