UNM Alumni Association and Lobo Living Room present, “Curanderismo and Ancestral Healing,” Thursday, July 25 at 6 p.m. at Hodgin Hall Alumni Center. A reception follows.

The event offers insight into the fascinating world of Curanderismo and their healing traditions. Mexican, African and New Mexican healers share the power of traditional healing through educational demonstrations, which include herbal medicine remedies (plantas de medicinales); energetic cleanings (limpias); hands on healing (sobadaros); healing with laughter (risoterapia); and Ugandan traditional healing. Please note that these are demonstrations only. Time and space constraints do not allow for consultation or healing.

The event is free and open to the public but an RSVP is required. Visit Lobo Living Room by Monday, July 22 to reserve your seat.

The Lobo Living Room is a venue that features notable UNM alumni discussing, demonstrating or performing in their areas of expertise, or UNM alumni-related events.

A special opening in honor of Curanderismo will be held at the Maxwell Museum on Tuesday, July 23 at 11 a.m.
