Participants are immersed in the ancient traditions honoring the ancestors. Dia de los Muertos is a ritual meant to lovingly remember relatives who have died. By honoring one's relatives in ritual, human existence is given renewed meaning and continuity. Emphasis is on the meaning of rituals associated with this traditional celebration and other healing ceremonies. Connections of health and community rituals will be explored within urban and rural settings. This practicum includes an overnight in the Teotitlan, a Zapotec indigenous community of weavers who uphold ancient traditional ways.
