Remedios: Healing in the Latino Community
Date: 7:00pm PDT September 30, 2014 Location: South Chapel, Graduate Campus
South Chapel, Graduate Campus
Please join us for a talk and presentation followed by a question and answer session with award-winning artist and healer Eva Castellanoz of Nyssa, Oregon.
She will discuss her work as a curandera, a Mexican traditional healer, her use of herbs and rituals, and how traditional health care can co-exist with western medical and mental health models. She’ll also share stories from her life and her path to becoming a healer.
Castellanoz has received a National Heritage Award for her traditional coronas, wax and paper crowns used in weddings and quinceañera ceremonies. She served on the Oregon Arts Commission and has been widely recognized for her community work using Mexican arts with at-risk youth and for providing healing to people from many different backgrounds.
Light refreshments will be served after the presentation and copies of Remedios: The Healing Life of Eva Castellanoz will be for sale ($18.95).
