We are always drumming for CFBS sponsors and volunteers and hoping that you will step forward and dance with us. For as Agnes Miclat-Cacayan writes about the babaylan: “she dances in wholeness.”
Many thanks to our volunteers who have helped bring about and are still helping bring about fabulous fundraisers and events for the First and Second International Babaylan Conferences. We have this beautiful vision for the Babaylan conferences of bringing culture-bearers and babaylan-inspired artists and scholars from the Philippines. With yours, our volunteers love, support and participation, we were able to hold this vision and shared it with many others when the conferences took place in 2010 and 2013. Likewise in 2011 and 2012, our volunteers made our symposium, retreats, festival participation, book events, and community rituals possible. Without our cohort of volunteers, we would not be able to serve our communities.
We thank our promoters, web divas, researchers, and various committee people.
Maraming salamat sa inyo lahat.
Daku gid nga kabalaslan.
