In Curanderismo

SHARED WISDOM FROM THE SPIRIT OF THE LAND: "Beginning in childhood, many are urged and taught by their cultures to not see too much. One should certainly not dare to call oneself an artist or poet. One must agree to agree, even though strongly sensing otherwise, that only things which have their atoms, packed together so tightly that they are able to be seen by the egos of all --- that these things are the only things that ought to matter in life.

But in curanderismo, it is just the opposite. The mother tongue is poetics. The healer is an artist. The invisible worlds are palpably felt and acknowledged directly along with the consensual reality."

Elena Avila, Woman Who Glows In the Dark.
