MARCH 27-31, 2022

The Shipibo Healing Journey is an opportunity for deep healing guided by nature, the elements and the world of the plants. This 4 night immersion includes 2 plant medicine ceremonies and interweaves ritual, embodied movement, voice activation and breathwork  for an unforgettable journey of transformation. You will be supported to shed unneeded belief patterns and connect to the free and joyful expression of your essence.

We have the honor to be guided by renowned Shipibo Onaya healer Maestra Ynes and her two powerful daughters, Maestra Laura and Maestra Lila. The maestras have spent these last years of global quarantine going deeply into their own study - dieting and investigating deeply into the wisdom of the plants in ceremony. They have emerged from this time period with incredible strength and insight, excited to support you in this deep healing journey!

  • Heal trauma and psychological or emotional blockages

  • Clear ancestral karmic patterns

  • Gain clarity and focus for your life path

  • Connect to your inner-self and intuition

Maestra Ynes

Maestra Ynes is a mother of seven children, three of whom are now Onaya healers. She is originally from the native community of Roaboya, next to the Ucayali River, Pucallpa.

At 14 years old, Ynes fell seriously ill with an unknown disease which led her to diet medicinal plants under the guidance of her grandfather and master healer, Aurelio. After successfully healing herself, Ynes decided to apprentice with Maestro Aurelio to learn her ancestral shamanic tradition of the Shipibo indigenous people.

A year later she undertook a diet in the forest that lasted for more than two years in complete isolation from the outside world. Some years later, Ynes continued dieting with her great-grandfather, Maestro and a Meraya healer, Luciano Sinuiri. At the age of 18, she began her last diet with her mother’s uncle, Maestro and Onaya healer, Basil Gordon. These three powerful healers gifted her the base of her knowledge and experience with the sacred plant medicine and ayahuasca.

Now with over 50 years of dedicated experience and ancestral knowledge, she offers a very powerful and beautiful connection with plant spirits; devoting her life to heal others in Peru and abroad. She brings an incredible wealth of knowledge that has been passed down for generations through her family lineage. With her contagious laughter and passion for healing, she distributes light and love with unfaltering compassion. 



Maestra Laura is the eldest daughter of Maestra Ynes. From an early age, Maestra Laura has been deeply immersed in the world of plant medicine. Laura was given small diets by her grandparents from the age of 10 years and by the age of 16 began her apprenticeship to learn about ayahuasca.

At 20, Laura traveled throughout Peru with Ynes, sharing medicinal plants and ayahuasca ceremonies for local Peruvians. She has also worked extensively with her mother, both in Peru and abroad. She brings an incredible wealth of knowledge that has been passed down for generations in her family line.

Laura works closely with her sister, Lila, and both have dedicated their time to sharing their medicine with the wider community, they have been guest speakers at several international gatherings and conferences.

Laura is known for her beautiful ikaros, (healing chants) that pour out of her with love and devotion to each of her patients.


Maestra Lila grew up with her grandparents and highly-respected Onaya healers. At the age of 13, Lila was the victim of a strong energetic attack. She then moved to live with her mother, Maestra Ynes, and dieted a mighty tree named Catawba. The diet succeeded in curing that evil harm and served as the gateway of Lila’s path as a healer.

Being the rebel that she is, Lila resisted the way of the medicine, sometimes in favor of leading a ‘normal’ life, but after the birth of her two children, the plants persisted in calling her to work with them. Since then, she has worked with her mother and other highly respected teachers throughout Peru and is also a specialist in warmi ikaros (healing chants of love, prosperity and happiness). She works with an incredible amount of love and compassion and an irresistible sense of humor!
