Maestra Amelia, Ronin Wano

About The Teacher

Maestra Amelia is 63 years old and comes from the community of Gusta Legre de Pachitea on the Ucayali River. She began working with the plants as a young woman (age?) under the tutelage of her uncle. Amelia has been through many tragedies, as there have been many deaths in her family, and much destruction and contamination of communities she has lived in. These experiences have only fortified her heart of gold, and her desire to be a conduit of healing.

In the 33 years she has been working with the plants, Amelia has become an expert herbalist with an encyclopaedia-like knowledge of the medicinal plants found in Shipibo territories. She has a gentle and loving character, is full of laughter with is driven by a deep passion for her work.

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
