María Sabina Magdalena García

María Sabina Magdalena García (1894 – 1985), was born on this day 22 July in 1894 she was known as the “priestess of mushrooms,” and was probably the most famous Mexican healer to have ever lived and a great poet. Her history and reputation led her to serve as a bridge between the mystical and ritual worlds of her people, and the mystical exploration of the Western world. Sabina’s total dedication to the healing practice began around the middle of her life during that same decade. She spent her entire life in a small Mazatec village up in the mountains of Oaxaca and worked the land in order to pay for beer and cigarettes. She did not know how to read or write; her verses were either spoken or sung. She expressed herself through the voice of the sacred mushroom, in a language that could be neither taught nor acquired. Her chants were first translated from her native Mazatec into English

Here is some advice from her:

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
