An excerpt from The Curanderx Toolkit: Reclaiming Ancestral Latinx Plant Medicine and Rituals for Healing
On learning Mayan backstrap weaving, a sacred art that honors both past and future lineages.
Ofrenda Magazine explores Xicana/x and Latinx spiritualities, ancestral connection, curanderismo, and other healing arts. We share wisdom from our community that acknowledges interconnection, promotes wellbeing, and honors the earth.
In this issue of Ofrenda, we look to the movement of the sky and orient ourselves in the seasons. Through their works, the authors in this issue invite you to consider the cosmos and the lineages that swirl through time and tug at us now. They claim their roots as truth and encourage you to do the same. What can the cycles of time teach us? What wisdom from our past is ever-present?
