DEPRESSION - KPFA radio and La Onda Bajita present the Traditional Healers Forum

     Depression is an issue that affects almost every one of us whether it is personally, a family member or a friend.    Depression can be debilitating, complicated and confusing.  There are many different types of depression, including Seasonal Affective Disorder, Panic Disorder, Postpartum Depression and Childhood Depression.

The Human Brain

      The medical profession addresses depression with a familiar array of medications: Adapin, Cymbalta, Elavil, Paxil, Prozac and Zoloft among others.  These are powerful chemicals which have many strong side effects associated with their use.  When the medicine can be as impacting as the disease itself we must ask ourselves if there is a different way to heal.

      On Friday, September 30th, from 8 to 10 pm, KPFA radio and La Onda Bajita will present the Traditional Healers Forum, hosted by David Kukkola and Norma LaBrava, which will address a holistic way to bring healing to the epidemic of depression.  This will be the third in a series of live, on site broadcasts from Living Medicines ( in Fairfax, Ca.  

      Joining David and Norma will be Bruce Elijah, Francis Weller, Teya Valentina and Rob Allbee with music from Marshal McKitrick.  At the end of the show they will take calls from the listening audience.  Please join the Forum for an insightful discussion about an important and sensitive topic.  Special thanks to Miguel Molina and his crew from La Onda Bajita for all of their hard work and effort to make this evening possible.  At ( we are proud to be one of the sponsors of this event.
