Philippine indigenous communities recognize a woman (or man) as a Babaylan, someone who has the ability to mediate with the spirit world, has her own spirit guides, and is given gifts of healing, foretelling, and insight. The Babaylan name is used by those who are inspired by the spirit of revolution against colonization, a belief in Sacred Wholeness, a love of mother country, and a desire to serve their communities in achieving justice and peace.
