New Online Training Program to offer soon!

As part of our Distance Learning and Continuing Education Program at Hilot Academy of Binabaylan. I am excited to announce the creation of Hilot Manggagamot Training to be offered soon.

Cover page of our new training program featuring Apu Adman’s Hilot Wellness Class in Brgy. Pasong Putik, Quezon City on 2009.

If you have taken our Non Contact Hilot: Mind and Spirit work and been certified as Magaanito/Magtatawas; this new training program will complement your previous certification and will gain the Hilot Manggagamot Certification.

Our Hilot Manggagamot Training program aims to enable our students to be competent in the following:

  1. Determine client/patient’s nature of illness by conducting Hilot Profiling.
  2. Initiate Therapeutic Communication in gathering client/patient information in determining the nature of illness.
  3. Perform Hilot Physical Assessment to examine clients/patient body part that are affected by an illness.
  4. Plan the method of Hilot treatment
  5. Apply Hilot method technique.
  6. Provide post/ after hilot treatment advice and home care supplementation as needed.

As you can see that there is also a physical method of tawas or determining the cause of illness; and this is what everyone should learn which is the Hilot Physical Assessment so as the Hilot Treatment Methodology which is not only limited in giving Hagod, Pindot as a form of massage.

We will run a test training if our program is feasible for online training and if not, we can arrange a face-to-face training soon hopefully by 2023.

Let me know if you are interested by making comment on this post.

Thank You!

Preserving our Ancestral Healing Tradition

Our participation in creating a Standard Competency Standards for National Certification and Accreditation of Hilot Practitioners, Training Institution and Hilot Healing Center has one of its aim in preservation of the Philippine Ancestral Healing Arts and Science.

Throughout the History, the definition of Hilot have been evolved through Generations.

First during the precolonial times, Hilot has been known to be the only medicine for the common people. During those time, our ancestors have power over caring for their own health by employing thier own knowledge and skills so as their behavior towards our natural resources as a form of medicine.

During the Colonial Period, Hilot has become a liberating modality not only in terms of freeing an individual from physical ailments but also from emotional disturbance and mental disabilities.

Still on the Spanish rule that extends to the American Occupation, Hilot becomes a life changing modality that gives woman the power to exercise their power of choice. Hilot has been used for abortion thats free the woman from the responsibility of taking care a new life within their body. Though later on the act of abortion has been criminalized so as the Practice of Hilot on Pregnancy as well as on Maternal Healthcare.

Later on Hilot has become a modality of luxury, where people can avail its services on a Hotel so as in a High End Spa. Now that we are in the 21st century, we are redefining Hilot as we integrate it into our National Healthcare delivery system. And lastly, Hilot becomes our Windows in the past and we dont just see it like in the museum but we can experience it; thus hilot becomes our ancestral and cultural heritage.

Remedial Hilot Curriculum Development

Working on our Curriculum about Remedial Hilot as i work on it i am reminded to be grounded on the Healing Principles that all individual has the ability to heal our selves so the treatment procedure we provide as manghihilot does not intend to heal but to help the individual to heal themselves.

In order for us to assist them in their healing, we should also better understand the Filipino Concept of Illness which is Pilay.

On April 27 i have to present 10 common filipino illnesses but i have identified 13 and have to divide into four category of filipino illness which is pilay ipit, pilay bali, pilay hangin and pilay lamig.

With a smile

I know that you are familar with the title of our article today. And to remind you, it derives from the Eraserheads hit song With a Smile!

I was in HighSchool when this song becomes very popular and amazingly it is still a hit for me specially right now that i had stroke. I cant imagine myself having this illness to myself. All i thought only before is I want to understand Stroke so that i could handle it properly with patients. I know i could learn it by reading books or articles in the website but now i am learning and overcoming it through experience.

In relations to the title of this article, luckily my stroke does not affect so much of my actions. except on my first 3 weeks from February 14- it paralyze my left part of my body. my left legs could not move so as my arms and hands. The paralysis reached my left face that makes me to have slurred speech.

I was so down that time and my left part of the body is literally cold and at that time i considered it dead as if your right part of the body is alive and moving while the left part is dead. i want to move it but literally i could not move. i could not even picked my nose using my left finger or wash my butt when i poop. it has no strength to carry a tabo (dipper) or even a glass of water. But in my mind i refuse to be enslaved and be chained by stroke. literally stroke makes you a prisoner within your body that makes you not only limited but totally all your freedom are frozen.

Luckily, i have a companion here in the Shrine. Lakay helps me to be warmed up and battle the coldness that covers my body. With the help of the Diwata through a Hilot Orasyon and pagpapahid, the natural heat of my body has been restored that now i can walk and move my arms. But i am still working out my smile.

Updated lessons at Hilot Online Training

Greetings Ka Manghahabi!

We have an update to our Non Contact Hilot: Mind and Spirit Work which is our Certification program on becoming a Certified Magtatawas/ Magaanito/ Pangatauhan or Pangutanahan. As of October 15, 2021, we have added an information regarding Unit 2 Lesson 2 which discuss about Orasyon. In this Topic, we have explained here what Orasyon is and have elaborated the different types of doing the orasyon and how it works. We may offer this specific topic and provide a Certificate of Attendance to the public who will request have the information about this.

Aside from Hilot Orasyon, we are going to add extra units on our curriculum in preparation for the Diploma Training Program of the Academy. So the former Hilot Binabaylan Certification which is an 8 day live-in training will migrate now into a Diploma Course which the potential students will be required to complete the Certification program in the following Areas:

  • Magtatawas Certification
  • Manggagamot Certification
  • Albularyo Certification

Currently our Magtatawas Certification or the Non Contact Hilot: Mind and Spirit Work Class is a 34 Weeks training program. And at this moment, we are still completing the lessons for the Manggagamot Training. Probably, i will make an announcement by the end of January 2022 if we can formally open the Manggagamot and Albularyo Training to the public in order to complete the Hilot Binabaylan Diploma Course.

For now, I encourage all of our Alumni of the Hilot Binabaylan Certification to get in touch. You will have a special role in the changes that is about to come. By the way, as i said we are updating our lessons, so if you think that the lessons that you have are outdated, I encourage you to become a Monthly Supporter to our Subscription page which is at BuyMeaCoffee.com.

Carromancy: Divination using melted candle wax

I learn this method of Tawas Diagnostic/Divination as I grew Up. I see Magtatawas perform this to determine the cause of illness of an Individual and uses the water to rub on the skin of the client as a remedy and the melted wax is kept on a paper and was used as an Amulet.

It is said that this form of Divination is not of Filipino Origin as it is believed that it is rooted in Celtic Tradition with the Druids. When I searched on the Internet the oldest candle factory in the Philippines, I found the Sevilla Candle Factory of Malabon that started its operation of manufacturing candles on 1964. Now I wonder if the Katipunero’s use Candles or Just an Oil Lamp? Is the use of candle been introduced to us by Spain? Uhm… there are many works to do in discovering our roots even with just little information.

Tuon Mandala

This is a Tuon ( pronounced as Two On) which is similar to Mandala where we use as a Focal Point for our prayers and devotion. In the middle of Tuon is the Word #Anito which is written in #Baybayin and the words that surround it are the Baybayin Characters that would spell the prayers of Luwalhati which is the official mantra of #LuntiangAghama and of the #HilotBinabaylan.

Learn how to use Baybayin in Rituals and Prayers by attending the #SiAdTala #BaybayinMysticOracle Attunement Workshop as facilitated by our Brother @alsent.aghama on October 20, 2021.
