Maestra Manuela Mahua Ahuanari

Onanya Ainbo (Shaman Woman) Manuela of the Shipibo people from the Peruvian Amazon is a 70-year-old grandmother with over half a century of experience working with plant medicines. Manuela’s father served the very first glass of Ayahuasca to her at age 13. This first step into the dieta tradition of her lineage was with the companion plant Ayahuma, known for its shamanic and otherworldly spirit. And so began her lifelong apprenticeship.At the age of 30 she nearly died of an inflammatory disease. Manuela was able to cure herself using specific Amazonian plants she learned of from her Grandfather. The totem of the Mahua lineage is the flying tree, Palo Volador, known as Noyarao: The Tree of Light. Many years of dieta with this tree has helped Manuela become a powerful and potent healer.She is a beautiful energy to be around and has an amazing laugh that will keep you smiling forever! It is a true gift that women like her still exist in this rapidly changing modern world and we feel truly honoured to have the opportunity to work with her.
