"PERROS SAGRADOS Y SUS CHAMANES is a contemporary mythology of a masked woman seeking resolution in her conflicted mind of shame and guilt by taking the first step toward being healed by a shaman who arrives with powerful herbs that are used in actual Mexican "cleansing" rituals and with his pack of dogs, called, "xoloitzcuintles" who were once regarded as guides into the after life in Pre Hispanic times. 

 

Perros Sagrados is the story of a woman who begins the process of killing off the old wounded self to evolve into a new self. The shaman prepares her for her journey."
