________________________________________________________________________________________________

Maestra Grace is a curandera & cultural educator. She has been at the forefront of social justice coalitions, helping to organize grassroots  advocacy groups. She is an inspiring speaker & lecturer, mother & grandmother.

Born in Baja California, Mexico, Grace is Mexican, of Kumiai and Yaqui descent (non-enrolled). As a child she was particularly influenced by watching and listening to one of her aunties, a curandera, share stories about helping neighbors and friends with various spiritual illnesses as well as to her uncle who was a well-known sobador and huesero, bonesetter. However, it was until the mid-1990s, that she formally undertook the study of curanderismo and other healing traditions by undergoing rigorous training with healers in Baja California and the United States. Grace was called to the medicine ways in dreams from early childhood, and beginning in her late teens through her 30’s, was visited in the dream time by a group of Indigenous Grandmothers dressed in the traditional clothing of various nations (tribes).

They gave her teachings and urged her to return to the ways of the Ancestors, of the Medicine, in preparation for the days to come when she, and other women, would help usher in and support the return of the energy of the Grandmothers; the spiritual power that would be helping restore balance between the feminine and the masculine in the world.
