    THE SIX PRINCIPLES OF MAYAN HEALING. Holistic by its very nature, Maya medicine is classified as a medico-religious healing tradition, taking into account not only the physical ills of the body but the effects of the spirit – attitudes toward life and living, emotions such as grief, depression, anger, fright, etc., and recognizing how intertwined they are.   Written by Erika Buenaflor, who brings 20+ years of practicing as a curandera, mentoring with curanderas/os and shamans in the Maya Yucatan jungle, and studying Mesoamerican Curanderismo at UCLA and UCR, this book offers readers a rich look into the fascinating world of Mesoamerican Curanderismo and Shamanism.
