Carmen Vicente was born in the province of Loja, Ecuador. Since her birth, she has been recognized in her community for her gifts as a “healer”, and during her childhood she actively practiced this role, specifically healing children and animals.
Throughout her unique journey, Carmen dedicated herself to theater and the arts, worked with women in jails, supported education programs for indigenous and peasant children through UNICEF, established alliances with indigenous leaders from North and South America, and consolidated her lineage as a Woman of Spiritual Path, and Chief of Sun Dance, Spirit Dance, and Vision Quest.
Carmen’s mission is to instruct contemporary women and men to walk in their personal power through attention to their origin. Today, her work inspires women around the world to step into their responsibilities in these times, as birth givers of creation and guardians of the fire. She regularly participates as a speaker at diverse festivals and educational spaces and leads various projects in America and Europe. She reminds us why it’s important to revitalize the memory of the ancient cultures of the Earth and to renew awareness of our relation with Spirit through art.
