About Grandmother Flordemayo and Don Alejandro
Grandmother Flordemayo Curandera espiritu (healer by divine spirit) and Mayan priestess Flordemayo is one of the 13 grandmothers of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, a global alliance that teaches ancestral ways of prayer, education and healing. Flordemayo was born in a small village on the Nicaragua Honduras border. Her father was a local shaman and her mother was a midwife and healer, whom Flordemayo apprenticed with from the age four. As her own children grew, Flordemayo began to work as a healer. Today, she uses the sacred breath, laying on of hands, application of herbs, as well as distance healing, with her clients.
Flordemayo has worked with alternative western healers, Native American and Mayan healers. She received her Mayan priest training from Don Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, a respected spiritual leader and head of the Quiche Maya Council of Elders. Flordemayo is now recognized as a "priestess" by the Maya. She is a founding member and President of The Institute of Natural and Traditional Knowledge.
Flordemayo has been a featured speaker on "Curanderismo" at many conferences on traditional medicine, both within the United States and internationally. Many alternative healing practitioners, medical doctors, nurses and medical institutions have recognized her knowledge and natural healing skills. She is a frequent presenter at international conferences such, as the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Bioneers, and is a recipient of the Martin de la Cruz Award for Alternative Healing, a prestigious honor given by the International Congress of Traditional Medicine.
Since 1999, Flordemayo has been a part of the Wisdom of the Grandmother’s Foundation. She is also founding director and on the board of the Institute of Natural and Traditional Knowledge in San Juan, New Mexico.
Don Alejandro is the elected leader of the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala that consists of 265 Grandfathers and 175 Grandmothers. He is the primary keeper of the teachings, visions and prophecies of the Mayan people.
