October 2023 Webinar

Mexican Day of the Dead, a Living Tradition

with Maestra Grace Sesma of Curanderismo, the Healing Art of Mexico

FRIDAY, October 13, 2023; 11AM – 12PM PT (2PM – 3PM ET)

Join Dr. Shamini Jain and Curandera Grace Sesma for a conversation about honoring life and death as the natural cycle of living, and sacred ways of remembering our ancestors on Dia de Muertos. For the past several years, Grace has answered the call for guidance from people of all ethnicities and backgrounds who, lacking a ritual of their own, have found a heart home where they can honor their beloved dead during the annual Dia de Muertos celebrations. She will welcome you and your ancestors into her circle with reflection and prayer to set the intention of opening our hearts to the teachings that the Day of the Dead has for all of us. Mindfully enter into a special Dia de Muertos meditation practice and learn how to respectfully experience Mexican Day of the Day as a vibrant, joyous, living tradition that continues to be revered and celebrated by Mexican, Chicanx, and Indigenous communities in Mexico and the United States.
