The Westside Community Center

(1250 Isleta Blvd. SW, Albuquerque, nm, .25 miles south of Bridge and Isleta)

The Kalpulli Izkalli and the Promotoras Tradicionales Project is honored to invite the community of Albuquerque and surrounding areas to the FOURTH annual Doña Predicanda Perea Encuentro de Medicina Tradicional, a community healing event. The gathering will include Aztec and Native American ceremonial leaders and dancers conducting Blessing / Healing Ceremonies in honor of local community healers, Mexican healers, Native American Healers and young and apprenticing healers, as well as talking circles to “pass on the knowledge to our next generation.” Special recognition will be given to Dona Predicanda Perea who has been caring for those that are left out of the mainstream health care systems because of poverty, lack of insurance as well as linguistic and cultural differences for more than fifty years. There will be more than 30 healers from New Mexico and Mexico offering therapeutic massages, sobadas tradicionales, body work, limpias (spiritual cleansings), Reiki (energy healing), acupuncture, and other healing modalities. Anemia screenings, high blood pressure screenings, diabetes screenings, a Children’s tent with fun activities, information booths, informational presentations, and food and entertainment by local talent and youth will be a part of the festivities on that day.
