Isabel Pinedo Rengifo
- Iquitos, Peru
Isabel is a Shipibo ‘Maestra’ and has been practicing healing work with medicinal plants and especially Ayahuasca for the last 40 years.
Born and raised in a traditional Shipibo community near the small town of Atalaya, deep in the heart of the rainforests of Peru, she began her training at just five years old under the guidance of her father and grandfather, both accomplished ‘Curanderos’ and part of a long ancestral line of traditional Shamanic healers, stretching back through many generations.
She has honed her healing talents through twelve years of rigorous ‘dieting’ with countless master plants and trees. Six of those years were spent deep in the jungle in almost total isolation which she began aged just 12 years old. She was already very experienced with working with Ayahuasca before she had reached her teenaged years.
To partake in an Ayahuasca ceremony under her guidance is a magical experience, filled with maternal love, deep healing and enchanting ‘Icaros’ (healing songs).
She performs the healing work with the aid of her plant spirit ‘allies’ and also benevolent ‘chullachaquis’, mysterious forest-dwelling spirits, infamous throughout the Peruvian Amazon rainforest.
She is also skilled at preparing specific ‘flower/plant baths’ that are individually tailored to clean a patients energy, especially if the person is suffering from depression or debilitating, negative emotional states.
Plant ‘diets’ are also available under her guidance, whether for just a couple of weeks or more serious diets that can continue for months or even years.
We feel extremely privileged to have her working with us at Dreamglade and sincerely hope that we will enjoy the blessings of her healing gifts for many years to come.
