Flordemayo was born in the highlands of Central America, and is the youngest of 15 children. She grew up in a family of traditional healers, and at an early age, like others in her family, she was found to have the gift of Sight. When she was 4 years old, Flordemayo began learning the art of curanderismo in the traditional way: taught from mother to daughter, generation to generation.
Flordemayo’s mother was a midwife and healer who taught her daughters in the use of herbs, women’s medicine and how women are to honor and care for the Earth. Her mothers guidance, both practical and spiritual, have helped to form who Flordemayo is today; a Curandera Espiritu-a healer of divine spirit.
"I don't consider myself a traditional person, but a universal person. Instead of abiding by rigid rules, I want to be free in my heart." ~Flordemayo
In addition to her independent work as a featured speaker and woman of prayer at National and International Conferences, she is a member of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Flordemayo travels our beautiful Mother Earth to share her healing abilities, inspiring and fostering more spiritual understanding among people, so that all people may unite in a circle of prayer.
Flordemayo is deeply respected for her healing ability and wisdom. She is the founding Director and President of the Institute of Natural and Traditional Knowledge, based in New Mexico, and has been recognized by The International Congress of Traditional Medicine as the recipient of the Martin de la Cruz Award for Alternative Healing.
Flordemayo’s remedies, Spirit Medicine of the Grandmothers, are made using traditional herbs, prayers and ceremony. These remedies have been passed down to Flordemayo through oral tradition for many generations. Flordemayo’s remedies are for every type of situation, designed to cleanse, heal, protect and promote spiritual growth.
"In this time of movement, where celestial doors have opened, we must do what we have been asked to do. We are standing in the movement and the vibration of a sacred prophecy. The prophecy tells us that consciousness is preparing the spirit of the feminine, the spirit of the grandmothers. It is in the prophecy that we shall walk into the light, united from the four directions." ~Flordemayo
