McAllen, TX .- Healing ourselves using natural remedies has been practiced for thousands of years, well before the age of modern medicine. Come to Quinta Mazatlán on Thursday, November 15th at 6:00 p.m. to learn from Danielle Lopez “Faith Healing: Past, Present, Future. A community medicine in the modern age.” A borderland native, Danielle’s studies focus on healing through traditional “faith healing” in interdisciplinary spaces. The informal presentation will explore regional medicinal plants and intersecting holistic healing practices.
A graduate from the University of Texas Pan-American, Danielle Leedia Maxine López received a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Mexican American Literature, Medical Anthropology, and Latin Art History. Her work as a cultural theory educator, craft as a curandera, chicana spiritual activism, and performance artist in the Río Grande Valley continues to lead her ongoing passion to preserve the culture, medicine, and art of her transcultural borderland heritage.
