Spanish Translator & Interpreter, Artist
Year born: 1967 (49 in ceremony)

Sandra García, an artist and interpreter, hopes to interview native Shipibo women in the Amazon about gender equity, ayahuasca shamanism and their experiences as women in a modern tribal culture. This would be the core focus of her grant. Sandra’s life’s work is about sharing the vision of perfection and oneness and the connection between all beings that she has experienced through ayahuasca. Sandra moved from Bogotá, Colombia, where she had a thriving career as graphic designer in advertising, to Asheville, North Carolina, where she found her calling as a Spanish interpreter for the Western North Carolina school district. A mosaic, fresco and fused glass artist specializing in mandalas and mixed media art that express her love for Mother Gaia, Sandra recently displayed The Kaleidoscycle, a piece created from bicycle wheels and recycled plastic that documents the lives and journeys of immigrants in western North Carolina, at the University of North Carolina-Asheville. After years of interpreting, she’s deeply in touch with parents, students, teachers and her local community.

“During the three consecutive ceremonies, I had many transformational experiences, including interdimensional spiritual conversations where the spirit of Mother Earth revealed to me that most humans remain in a collective amnesia, forgetting that she is the one in charge on this planet, and reaffirming the need to raise our vibrations by reconnecting with her—for the survival of humanity and all the other beautiful living beings we share on the planet.” – Sandra Garcia
