We work with various shamans and depending on what people are looking for is who I try to marry them up to. So if someone is looking for strong healing then I look for someone to do that, I talk to the different shaman and see which ones have the best knowledge of this healing; I try and get as much information from people as I can before they come so when they get here we are fully prepared and I already have it worked out who we are going to be working with. But we predominantly work with Shipibo.
"A dear friend of mine passed away a couple of years ago, Pablo Amaringo, and he told me when I asked why he painted Incas he relied that he painted Incas because they came from another planet and they brought gifts with them. One of the gifts was ayahuasca and they went into the jungle and they gave it to the Shipibos for safekeeping. I’ve drank with - oh god, a hundred different shaman, at least - and for me by far the strongest work happens with the Shipibo people."
