This gorgeous book from Felicia Cocotzin Ruiz is brimming with the wisdom of a curandera from the Sonoran Desert. A curandera is a female traditional native healer, or shaman, primarily found in Latin American cultures. Identifying as Mexican, Spanish, and Tewa, Ruiz shares her cultural background to provide spiritual guidance, rituals, and traditional healing practices rooted in her ancestry. She honors the elements by dividing the book into four sections: earth, water, air, and fire. Each section contains culinary recipes, rituals, and healing practices that guide the reader to reconnect with each element within themselves. The content of each section is organized into three subsections to further guide the reader, they are inner harmony, beauty, and spiritual work.

A truly beautiful book to hold, photography by Nicky Hedayatzadeh captures the stunning landscape and botanicals of the southwest desert.
