About The Teacher

Lucho, who became an orphan at the age of 6 had to be very resourceful to survive.  He was eventually taken under some nuns’ wings.

He drank ayahuasca for the first time at the age of 12.  This experience sparked curiosity in him and lit his desire to investigate more about this master plant.

In his teenage years, he took the initiative to isolate himself in the jungle of Pucallpa and started investigating different medicinal plants. There, he developed his sense of intuition.  

At the early age of 17 years old, he started healing patients by hand imposition, with prayers and chants.  He made a living treating patients with his hands.  He was known as a good ‘huesero’ (bonesetter).

As he wanted to deepen his understanding and knowledge of the sacred medicinal plants, at the age of 20 he found a teacher of Shipibo heritage who sent him to do a two and a half “dieta” deep into the jungle of Pucallpa.  He spent this time in isolation working with the plants.

It is only after this experience that he started using ayahuasca to heal his patients.  

At the age of 47 years old, he intoxicated himself drinking a mix different medicinal plants.  He went back to the jungle in isolation for 9 months to heal himself.  When he came out of isolation he met a master/teacher with whom he has been studying with ever since.    

Lucho is now 58 years old.   He is well respected in his field.   He wears his heart in his sleeves.   He is a very warm and kind man who loves what he does.
