Flor Fernández Barrios continues her story of personal growth that
she began in Blessed by Thunder, with this new book, recounting
her education and experiences as a psychotherapist and spiritual
healer. She blends traditional methods (taught to her by her grandmother
and by a wise Yucatan curandero) with modern psychology practices to
bring balanced, hopeful methods of treatment for those in her care. The
Mask of Oyá
is a profound, thoughtful journey that will
remain with the reader. Dr Fernández Barrios' gentle, sympathetic
discourse is reflective of her healing spirit, and her calm,
matter-of-fact narration gives her an authenticity difficult to
question.


"Not only does Flor Fernández Barrios write about her path to become a
curandera, she invites us into the very rituals of her initiation and
shows us how the Afro-Cuban orishas and Mayan deities work in her life
as a psychotherapist. Beautifully written, The Mask of Oyá
is filled with mystery, suspense and wisdom—an inspiration to us all."

and The Heroine's Journey


"In The Mask of Oyá, Flor Fernandez Barrios
presents us with the gift of her spiritual wisdom, learned over a
lifetime of deep and conscious practice. Drawing on memories of her
childhood in Cuba, her experience as a woman reawakened to her cultural
heritage, and her intuitive work as a psychotherapist, Dr. Fernandez
invites us on a journey of spiritual connection and personal
transformation. With insights she has gained from clients and her own
experience, she acquaints the reader with the realm of ancient
spirits—such as Yemaya, the Afro-Cuban deity of the oceans who is the
giver of life, and Oyá, the deity of winds who is the gatekeeper between
life and death. The result is a unique and powerful book that resonates
deeply in the soul."
Faith Conlon, co-editor of A
Woman Alone
and Go Your Own Way: Women Travel the World Solo


"Flor Fernández Barrios strips away the skin of appearance to reveal
the complex and
fascinating world of the healer. By sharing her
transformation with us, she shows us our own ability to transform." —Kathleen
