About The Teacher

With a lifetime of experience in the Amazon Rainforest, Alberto was born along the Nanay River in one of the last "Iquito-Indian" communities "Lupuna". Growing up in the jungle he learned from his grandmother and uncle who were local healer and passed down to him the knowledge of healing with plants. Now Alberto shares the plant secretes of the rainforest that opens their minds and heart in searching for enlightenment, health, and happiness. At the age of 8 years, Alberto started to have a strong interest to shamanism. At 15 years old he started the training for 8 years in the Amazon rainforest. Then Alberto went up the Ucayali river to join to a Shipibo ethnicity to test his expertise and endurance spiritually and search for more knowledge. It took 15 years to finally come back to his village and help those ones who are hoping to feel the power of the ancient way of Amazonian Shamanism.
