The Article from The Post was not attached properly earlier. Here it is again. Mamerto Tindongan is a man of many talents, but his best trait of all is spreading positive energy to all who come in contact with him.

The Post

The number of people getting help is misquoted in the article below. It is suppose to be just two people, not 20 a week. Also, David Hostetler died in 2015, not 2005. Thank you Sarah and Meagan for this nice article.

[01/15/16]   Do you want to carve sacred symbols, like the platonic solids or Reiki Symbols? Do you like to build your own "tiny" house and grow your own food? Come and immerse yourself with the traditional arts of woodcarving, gardening and landscaping, and building huts using simple tools. Make your own atlatl (ancient weapon or hunting implement) and experience how to cast a dart/spear with it. You can also learn Tai Chi and/or Qigong for health. Using simple meditation techniques all of these activities can help you connect with the balancing/harmonizing power of nature.

General information

The Village of Kinakin is a typical place in Ifugao where the ancient ways of life meets the present. We strive to keep the Ifugao traditions vibrant by living and sharing it to those who seek. We focus on four inheritance that make us distinct from other cultures. They are: traditional farming of our terraced rice-fields; living inside the Ifugao hut; honoring/making the "bulul" (gods of harvest/abundance); and using/making the "linglingo" (rebirth/fertility symbol).. We also like to keep and share our traditional heling practices. Healing to us is not limited to people but also domesticated plants and animals. Come visit us and we will halp you have a memorable experience.
