Raul Buenapico Ramirez


Raul has worked as a Curandero since his early twenties and has travelled with the medicine throughout many parts of Peru. He has worked with personal clients, in retreat settings and in hospitals. He has a strong connection to his Incan ancestors and, after travelling to Cusco and the Sacred Valley when he was young, has a great love for the area. You will often hear references to the Incas, Cusco, and sites around the Sacred Valley in his icaros! Raul has a powerful presence in ceremony and a gentle way of working with people during energetic cleanses outside of ceremony. He is extremely dedicated to his work and has a deep understanding of Shipibo cosmology and his ancestry, and is always willing to answer questions and share information about the medicine and his ancestors.

Americo Huayta Ramirez


Americo is passionate about his healing work and enters every ceremony with great enthusiasm. He loves working with the plants, singing Icaros, and preparing medicines and remedies. When not working with us, he spends his time in Pucallpa and Lima, helping his clients overcome many illnesses. Americo has the special ability to sing icaros during his work outside of ceremony and gives powerful cleanses to those who need it. He loves sharing his wisdom and insights and is always willing to teach and explain about the medicine.

Raul, Lidia and Americo are a family of traditional Curanderos from the Shipibo tribe and live in Pucallpa, in the Amazon Rainforest, Peru. Americo and Lidia are brother and sister, with Raul being their older half brother. They were all trained from a young age by their Grandfather who was also a Curandero, and each has a lifetime of experience working with Ayahuasca and the medicinal plants of the jungle.
