Salud y Bienestar/ Health and Wellness Event 2017

Parque Ninos Unidos - 3090 23rd St., San Francisco, CA


This year, Indigena Health and Wellness Collaborative (IHWC) intentions are to raise awareness of the importance of cultivating our own identity and culture. IHWC’s goal is to shed a light on the healing that this cultivation brings to the community, and to foster dialogue on this topic. IHWC aims to provide the community with tools so that they can participate in actively cultivating their own identity and traditions.

In addition, IHWC will continue to create a space for elders and youth to connect around the theme of spiritual healing to honor cross-generational storytelling. Through weekly workshops IHWC engages the community in a multi-age, multi-generational, and genuine conversation on this month’s topic to ensure, not only, the passage of information, but also, to create a greater sense of community in participants.

The event “Health and Wellness” aims to give our community the opportunity to go on a journey together to obtain a new perspective on their own identity and spiritual traditions.

The “Health and Wellness” event will take place over the course of a month and will be comprised of four meetings/gatherings. All of these meetings/gatherings will focus on inviting attendees to partake in traditional practices and use them as a channel to discover their own identity.

  • 5 DE  JUNIO- CULTIVAR LA IDENTIDAD (June 5th, Cultivating Identity)
  • 12 DE JUNIO – SANACIÓN Y DANZA  (June 12th, Healing and Dance)
  • 19 DE JUNIO – TAMBORES (June 19th, Drumming)
  • 26 DE JUNIO – CEREMONIA MAYA (June 26th, “What is Ceremony?”)

Workshops will take place from 4:30-7 pm at the Parque Ninos Unidos 3090 23rd St., San Francisco, CA.  Dinner and child care will be provided at no cost for participants.
