Join us for an intimate evening of storytelling with Dr. Rosita Arvigo sharing the stories of her life’s learning from Traditional Healers and Midwives in Mexico, Central America and her time with Don Elijio Panti, born in Peten, Guatemala.  The story of Don Elijio Panti and Rosita Arvigo, is an exceptional example of how two people from two different cultures come together and learn from each other and infused the world with insight and truth.  Their story reminds us that while we are not entitled to the knowledge of traditional peoples, over time with respect and integrity, it is possible to bridge cultures.
