- Iquitos, Perù
Luis Pinedo was born in 1969 in Iquitos, he is from a Huitoto family and his grandfather was a curandero ayahuascuero.
Luis’s father had not inherited the legacy of his grandfather, but Luis was always attracted by the world of traditional medicine and wanted to devote himself to learn its secrets.
It was not difficult for him to awaken this memory and self-educate himself to the use of ayahuasca getting the help, during the path, of many others masters.
Luis can be called a “maestro Ayahuascuero Dietero”. He gives to his guests the possibility to diet plants, and “dietar”, in the jargon of the Peruvian shamanism, means taking a plant in a brew for a the prescribed consecutive days, every morning on an empty stomach, accompanying this assumption with a healthy and reduced diet and a life in isolation in the forest.
