Lagitan and The Ifugao Hut

There was a Healer who have vivid dreams , visions about healing ancestral traumas and reviving geometric structures.

One of the dreams is to build an Ifugao healing hut .

In this video we had a chance to get to know the Healer and take a closer look of the process of building the hut .

The Ifugao Hut Healing Project was initiated by Mamerto Lagitan Tindongan, an Ifugao descendant and mombaki (shaman) who has a knowledge of the indigenous healing traditions of Northern Philippines. He is a Pilipin@-American immigrant based in Ohio, who practices a combination of both Eastern and Western healing traditions. He believes that performing a ritual at the former site of the St. Louis World’s Fair will help address the deep psychic wounds of his people and the colonial relations between Pilipin@s and the United States.

“Time Lapse Photography” Winter Solstice Jam with Cuco

this is a time lapse photography of “Time Lapse Photography” Winter Solstice Jam with Cuco

Winter Solstice jam Cuco Esperansa

I dedicate this musical prayer to my Filipino brothers
and sisters and their families who suffered the unexpected Tsunami of
October 2013 . Music is always an exceptional healing tool . Here we are
using a mix of Filipino and Mexica Pre-Columbian instruments . I give
thanks to Olivia Chumacero who arranged this sacred Tongva Space ; which
has been used for the gatherings of the original ancestors of these lands
for thousands of years .I also thank my young Filipino brothers and sisters
for inviting me to participate in this Harmony Creating Ceremony
Tlazocamatli Ipalnemoani Ometeotl.- Cuco Esperansa

This was a ceremony done on behalf of Everything is Medicine
http://everythingismedicine.wordpress.com/
for the Dec. 21st. Solstice of 2013

It was the ceremony being celebrated with the cultures who recognize the solstice as part of an integral part of their existence with our ancestors ; represented by the ofrendas there to witness and celebrate the communication from the past to the present to the future
All the instruments were precolumbian instruments who sounds were connected to the earth ; fire ; wind; water ; and mother earths children …who on this day we celebrate the new born sun as it reaches its southern most point and returns north ; or as we say , is reborn . In the Aztec culture we say this is the time the earth and all it’s children shed its old skin and is reborn to its new self ; mind ; body ;and soul …

thanks for being part of this memory

Mamerto speaks about a particular blessing called Gopah in Ifugao

Mamerto Tindongan is a Mumbaki (Ifugao shaman), a wood sculptor, and energy healer using Kolaimni, Reiki, and Qigong among others .

he visited the Balangay ng Langit to share with us healing energy ,wisdom,and a blessing called Gopah in Ifugao

Our Filipino community in LA, inspired by our rich indigenous heritage, envisioned the Balangay ng Langit altar in honor of our peoples and ancestors. This was offered upon the invitation of the Tongva elders and the organizers of the Anabolic Monument/Garden of the LA State Historic Park.
