SanArte is a community-led cultural healing and empowerment collective that offers live and virtual programming, mobile clinics, education, and facilitation to activate ancestral wisdom, traditional healing practices, and nurture a collaborative spirit in communities in Yanaguana (the greater San Antonio/Central Texas area).
SanArte Healing & Cultura Clinic is a movement of interactive community health solutions rooted in Traditional Indigenous and Folk Medicine that grow life-giving practices for our world. Through participatory education programs, mobile healing clinics, and Telehealth (TeleAnimo) services, SanArte activates innate wisdom in participants, teaches personal resilience tools, and facilitates relationship weaving to create a culture of wellbeing. SanArte collaborates with public health institutions to build culturally affirming partnerships between allopathic and traditional medicine networks to provide support for the emergent needs in our communities.
Co-creator, Vanessa Quezada, explains the purposes of the SanArte Clinics in the Avenida Guadalupe community.
The SanArte community lives into the vision of a vibrant community where all members share their gifts and co-create a thriving culture based on traditional values of love, respect, mutuality, and gratitude for life. We work, serve, celebrate and play our unique parts in a thriving region sustained by regenerative agriculture, sacred ECOnomics, and participatory cultural education systems rooted in indigenous cosmovision of mutual responsibility and harmony with all life for the next 7 generations.
