Angela Sanchez Rioz
About The Teacher
Our master shaman, Angelita Sanchez Rioz, comes from a very small Shipibo community called San Francisco close to the Ucayali river, near Pucallpa. Before dedicating her life to the medicine she was an artisan who would sell her art around Peru, which she makes in her free time to reflect the essence of Shipibo culture.
She has been working with the medicine for the last 8 years. Her shamanic path started when she met Wiler at a social reunion where they became friends and he encouraged her to start dieting with sacred plant medicines. She connected well with this path and decided to dedicate her life to the medicine. After some time she became an apprentice to Wiler and has been a master shaman for the last 2 years.
After dieting a wide variety of medicinal plants she has become a powerful female shaman of the Shipibo culture, full of light, love, and laughter that she spreads wherever she goes.
Her main purpose in life is to bring what has been given to her from the medicine to others, spreading the healing and joy to all those around her, as well as taking care of her family in the city of Iquitos, and her project of building a house where they can all live together comfortably. Angelita joins the Soltara family on rotation, so she can have adequate time to spend with her family in Peru.
