BAYBAYIN CREATIVITY WORKSHOP

Monday, April 28, 2014

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.



DAY 1

Our-story of Baybayin
Baybayin and Filipino Psychology
The different Baybayin styles
Baybayin Calligraphy Meditation and more....

DAY 2

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.
