To benefit the Chumash Women’s Oral History Project, Lynda Yracébûrû, the founder of the indigenous knowledge organization FollowingAncestors EarthWisdom, is presenting an evening seminar on the Ancient Gypsy Healing Art of HandWalking tonight, Thursday July 27, 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Predating the Buddha, this ancient form of “medical palmistry” as an expansive form of healing will be discussed, along with hands-on training in simple techniques of hand line stimulation. Yracébûrû is a Romani Chovani — gypsy healer — with experience as a cardiovascular X-ray technologist and massage therapist. After a debilitating injury forced her to resign from Stanford & Seton Medical Centers, Yracébûrû found her way to health via her ancestral healing art form. This program will serve as an introduction to the upcoming Keepers of the Faith 1st Annual Womyn’s Conference to be held in Santa Barbara, December 3-6, 2006. For information, contact Connie Baetjir at 636-2615.
