This week on Poetic Resurrection we have an informative talk with Trini Rodriguez discussing Native American and Mexican American sweat-lodges and how this brings you closer to your soul. We discuss healing and talking circles and how they facilitate the “self” in becoming “whole” and the Aztec (Sun) calendar and how it guides you to the essence of your character.
Trini Rodriguez (AKA Tlazohteotl) is co-founder and former Executive Director of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore (www.tiachucha.org), a cultural center/bookstore in L.A's San Fernando Valley that transforms community through ancestral knowledge, the arts, literacy, and creative engagement. A former bilingual educator, court interpreter, and newspaper editor, she writes, speaks, and strives for personal and collective healing and systemic social change. Trini facilitates women's healing sweat-lodge and healing circles in Native American and Native Mexican traditions. She and her husband Luis J Rodriguez produce “The Hummingbird Cricket Hour” podcast (http://hummingbirdcricket.libsyn.com/) to explore thoughts and move hearts on pressing matters of life, social change, and philosophy.
