My name is Iris De Anda and I am a Poet, Activist, and a Practitioner of the Healing Arts.

Words are our Medicine. I AM so thrilled to see you here. It is my sincerest wish that as you glimpse into my world you may find something that inspires you to share your very own story. We are after all a reflection of each other. In LakʼEch: eres mi otro yo. There is a story to be told, conversations to be shared, & IDEAʼs to manifest. May the words you find on these pages ignite your CORAZON.
