Baybayin (a.k.a. alibata) is the script of the ancient Filipino. Like a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation, theBaybayin can be considered as our direct connection to our ancestors. The Baybayin Creativity is a 2-day workshop-class which aims to cultivate one's Filipino symbolic literacy and basic understanding of the characters.

Baybayin and Filipino Psychology

Discover your name in Baybayin and its meaning
The pictographic significance of the characters
Awakening the Baybayin consciousness through ritual and more....

This is both a Creativity and Cultural Re-connecting Class-Workshop. Engaging the mind-heart and hand, we embark on a journey of rediscovering our “self”, our natural creativity; re-connecting to a distinct cultural heritage, and growing in the awareness of our Filipino ancestry.

As we learn about Baybayin, we reclaim a piece of our cultural self – buried and veiled to some extent - inviting us to greater sense of wholeness, as a person and as a people.

We believe everyone is creative. No artistic skills required. Only a readiness to discover and unleash one's creativity.
