It really opened my mind in understanding oya and her powers as well as understanding the roles of our ancestors and spiritual guides. It really help me connect to my spiritual gifts and accepting them.

This book is very informative and it is a great insight to one person's path in the traditions. I recommend this book if you want to read a person's experiences. I loved it

Don't buy this tale because of the few paragraphs that speak briefly about the Yoruba goddess. Here Oya is the seasoning in the pot - not the meat. Seems Fernandez-Barrios has invoked the name of the Goddess in her title only to increase book sales.

A courageous and beautiful book. A practicing psychologist, the author recalls the impact of a visit from her aged grandmother to her family's new home in LA. At her grandmother's admonition the author was called back to the healing practices she learned as a young girl in her native country Cuba. A reconnection with her beloved elder prepared her for a journey into the jungles of Mexico where she encountered her fears and strengths under the thoughtful direction of another powerful teacher. The last half of the book describes by example how the author accesses her gifts for healing blending them with her scientific knowledge of modern psychology. The end result is to bring about the therapeutic transformation of her clients. The book is challenging to our modern ideas of healing, thought-provoking. The reader will be processing the story well past the last page.

Insightful and inspiring, the Authors journey toward the cultural recovery of her selfhood as outlined in this book is gripping and thought provoking.

In this book the concept of Oya is transcended as a ritual exercise and given deep personal meaning through the Authors unmasking of self through the halls of university and reconnection with family.

I highly recommend this book for serious seekers of healing and wisdom who seek to move from outer ritualization in search of healing and transformation toward inner work and sanctification.
