Dr. Rosita Arvigo speaks at the College of Natural Medicine

by redblossom on September 18, 2010

On Friday, February 24th at 7 pm, Rosita will share stories of her time spent with Don Elijio Panti in Belize.  Don Elijio was one of the last h’men’s of the Yucatan Peninsula.  A h’men is the most skilled type of physician in Maya culture, the highest order of medicine man or shaman.  Rosita lived and worked with Don Elijio for 13 years. Rosita’s talent for storytelling will weave a special treat for all of those interested in natural medicine, ethnobotany or simply diversity of human experience.

Here are the directions to the National College of Natural Medicine.  Give yourself an extra 20 minutes to get there if you haven’t been there before because it is hard to find the right combination of roads to get into the parking lot!  Once you are there, surely there will be enough people around to direct you.  The lecture will be in the Great Hall, which is in the centre of the building, on the 3rd floor.

This event is open to the public. There is no charge, but a donation for the Ix Chel tropical Medicine Foundation is welcome.
