Leave it to Ev Mann (Executive Director of the Center for Creative Education) to bring someone as special as Eda Zavala Lopez to Midtown Kingston. The two met when she was in NY in April working on a project for indigenous rights at the UN. A noted healer from the Peruvian Amazon, Eda is descended from a long line of healers in the tradition of the Wari people.In July, Hudson Valley residents will have two unique opportunities to see her.
Below are details of the events scheduled at MaMa in Stone Ridge – though for Kingston residents, CCE will host a potluck dinner for Eda at their location at 20 Thomas Street on Saturday, July 10th at 6:00pm. Eda will be speaking about her work in preserving indigenous cultures and the rainforest.

Actually I befriended her as well last October, introducing her to some native groups in the community. She stayed over my house. When she asked me to host her for workshops at my house this summer, I offered that the MaMA may be a better place for that. So I connected Ev and Eda together. She’s a wonderful woman.
That is a great connection, Valeria!
