A guided exploration and explanation into Mexico's growing devotion to La Santa Muerte

About this event

A guided exploration and explanation into Mexico's growing devotion to La Santa Muerte. As the unofficial patron saint of outcasts, criminals, self-empowered women, and the queer community, this death deity's reputation has often been slandered and sensationalized in the media, but come join Latinx author and Santa Muerte devotee Tomás Prower to go beyond the “outsider” stereotypes and assumptions and explore why Mexico's most maligned find refuge in Death.

An in-depth explanation into the appeal of this feminine grim reaper for her cult of devotion to become the fastest growing spiritual movement of modern Mexico, spreading internationally to the U.S., Europe, Asia, and the rest of Latin America. How do millions find comfort and solace in such a stark figure of death and such an obvious reminder of our own mortality? Come explore in the darkness and see how such fears are setting people free.
