Monday, May 9, 6-7:45 p.m.
JOSELITO FLORES CASTILLO is a healer, a storyteller, a teacher, a dancer, a musician, a dynamic creative being. He is an intuitive healer who descends from a long line of curanderos and who grew up gay in a conservative Tex-Mex family.
In 2016, Joselito completed his Life Coach training with Marla Williams and formally began his journey of being a coach and healer.
For Joselito, creativity is a lifestyle. He enjoys playing with various forms of media and is constantly capturing mundane moments to recycle into art. He has been an avid record collector his entire life and is a die-hard disco bunny. He is utterly devoted to his diva, the exquisite Ms. Connie Francis.
When not dancing and creating, Joselito enjoys his time cooking delicious vegetarian delights, spending time with Randy, his partner of 33 years, and spoiling their dog, Rupert the Basenji. He is currently working on self publishing a memoir of his childhood in Lubbock, Texas.
