happenstance that the babaylans of the celyo rizalista were going to bohol to commemorate dr jose rizal’s 150th birthday at the same time i would be in the islands, come to find out that a cousin of mine is the main contact in the islands. thankful and blessed i am, she would pick me up and drop me off during the celebrations, happenstance, i wondered even more as the color of clothing i wore without verbal consult ended up matching. I first met Kataastaasang Babaylan Yolanda Liban Manalo at the CFBS International Conference last year in Northern California. i am unable to formulate into words the experience at this time so in lieu of words i share a youtube video from an artist who met with Apu Reyna and some photos taken from the flower offering in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, for Dr Jose Rizal’s 150th celebration 2012. Mabuhay!
