Master Don Luis Rimachi – Our Family

Ayahuasca Iquitos

With more than 40 years of experience, Don Luis is one of the most knowledgeable Ayahuasca Shaman still in activity. He began his training as a Curandero as an adolescent with his grandfather. His ancestors passed on a wealth of knowledge stemming back to the native healing traditions of the land. He spent many years studying modern medicine and theology, and he established himself in the community of Santa Maria as a Curandero. After more than thirty years of experience, Don Luis came to the village of Padre Cocha, and created Selva Madre in order to assist people in awakening and healing of the mind, body, and soul.
