I'm off to the Philippines tomorrow for almost a whole month to conduct research on babaylan traditions and participate in a Babaylan symposium at the Institute of Women's Studies at St. Scholastica College. Will finally have an opportunity to dialogue with scholars, theologians, artists, and cultural activists who consider the babaylan as archetype for the work that they do. Sister Mary John Mananzan, a pioneer in feminist liberation theology in the third world, presented a slide show of her life as a babaylan at the FAWN conference. I'm excited to be on the same panel with her at the symposium!
