Celebrating, ‘Hiyang’: The Filipino Culture of Healing


Dr. Felipe De Leon, former Chairman of National Commission for Culture and the Arts, takes center stage in TalkShop’s Wellness Wednesday this November to talk you through embracing “hiyang”.  Live on Zoom via TalkShopph on Facebook all Wednesdays of November at 530 pm – 6:30 pm.

Join Sheila Viesca, Talkshop CEO and Certified Life Coach, as she mines insights from Dr. de Leon on  “hiyang”, the basic tenet of the Filipino culture of healing.

You often hear the word, but what really is “hiyang”?

What makes it rooted to your heritage?

How does “hiyang” place you in a state of creative harmony and integration with all levels of your being?

How can you cultivate “hiyang” to build a capacity to sense and identify your place in the cosmic social order?

How can “hiyang” help you achieve harmony across your spiritual, psychic, mental,aesthetic, affective, sensory, and physical facets?

How can “hiyang” make you a healthier person?  How can it help you survive even a pandemic?

True to the goal of TalkShop’s Wellness Wednesday, embracing “hiyang” seeks to put us on top of our game by shaping our thoughts to be clearer and our speech to be more confident.
