Happy Easter mga Ka Habi!
How are you doing? I hope that you have enjoyed our Easter Break and from today April 5, 2021 we will resume our class by posting lessons in our classroom so as our weekly Video conferencing by weekends and it will happen on April 11 and 12 for me but most of you it will be April 11- Sunday either morning, afternoon or evening class.
This Easter Break seems to be more busy for us here as our City has been put again into ENhanced Community Quarantine that means curfew hours have been implemented again and our movement going out has been limited. And during this break we were able to conduct private healing session and even face-to-face exorcism ritual within the premises of the shrine.
It seems that many people still believe in the Power of Hilot but the principles within their belief are clouded with Spanish Influence such as the Christian Orasyon. Well its been 500 years since Spaniards arrive in our country and have introduced Christianity unto us. Our Struggle now as Binabaylan is the reintroduction of our Indigenous Spirituality to the people by making them ReMember themselves to be part of us.
Last week I also saw a post in one of the Social Media Platform that talks about Babaylan as an umbrella term for Manghihilot, Albularyo, Magaanito and so on and so forth. Well the later is just some work of a Babaylan but not all manghihilot, albularyo, magtatawas, magaanito and so on can be a Babaylan. If we convert the term Babaylan into a modern sense, it is a Title that has many qualifications and not just one qualification alone but a multiple role.
With that me and lakay are thinking to release to the public our Binabaylang Tala Initiation Course which will help an individual to reclaim their own Spiritual Lineage in accordance to the Guidance of the Ancestors. With that we assure our Students who have taken the Hilot ng Aghamang Binabaylan and Non Contact Hilot: Mind and Spirit Working class to be pre-qualified in taking our Initiatory Course in Binabaylang Tala.
Binabaylang Tala is a path to Priesthood Course which will enable you to work with our Old Traditional Divinities. We will let you know more about this during our video conferences sessions.
Aside from this, Hilot Academy of Binabaylan want to let know everyone that we open our doors for new students every new moon so the registration for enrollment continue until we have served people that want to be reconnected into our race.
Our Next Admission Class will be opened on April 12 and new class will start by Full Moon April 27, 2021.
And to announce that we have candidates for Graduation and they are JL Umipig of New York and Lorenzo Pau of Hawaii. Our Class Graduation does not mean that their connection with us will be cut off but only it open them a new door to continue their dedication in serving the people within their community.
All of our Graduates are free to sit in to our class anytime and join our online video conferencing at their own free time.
So see you in our classroom!
