Ofrenda Magazine is a new multimedia publication that explores Xicanx and Latinx spirituality, Earth wisdoms, and healing arts.
We feature creative and informative works from a wide range of Xicanx, Indigenous, Latinx, and Afro-Latinx contributors—writers, artists, poets, academics, healers, activists, and others—and those who celebrate their perspectives.
We center Earth-based wisdoms along with “spiritual mestizaje” or “nepantla spirituality”—the lived experiences of blendedness, liminality, and transformation. Topics include the learning of ancestral knowledge, Earth-centered and embodied spiritual practice, inspired activism and environmental justice, the cosmos and cosmic sacred, wellness and self care, spiritual herbalism, curanderismo, design justice and designed futures, conocimiento, querencia, and more.
The magazine was founded as una ofrenda—an offering—to the community, to seekers and practitioners, to our ancestors, to the Earth, and to the many generations that will follow us. May our healing and self care be their wellness.
We welcome creative submissions from the community on an ongoing basis. Learn more on our submissions page.
Marcy also extends warm thanks to Maestra Ixtoii Paloma Cervantes for her teachings and especially to Erika Buenaflor, Curandera, for the plática that set this project in motion.
