About The Teacher

Co-founder, Director of the Center for Indigenous Medicine, Traditional Ando-Amazonian and Chinese Medicine Man

Roman Hanis has been working closely with the indigenous Peruvian cultures in the Amazonian rainforest and Andean mountains since 2001. During this time he has devoted this life to learning the ancient healing ways of these cultures while seeking possibilities for creating ecological sources of sustenance for local populations and working to preserve the rainforest and its spiritual heritage of sacred medicinal plants.

Seeing the vital role that ancient cultural practices can play in today’s world, Roman honors and shares their value and wisdom through his work in community projects, healing retreats and educational workshops in both Peru and the U.S.

    I consider myself lucky to have met and sat under Roman’s guidance and teachings at Paititi. As I have met many “shamans” and “healers” along the way upon my return to the West, and with alarming numbers, have I seen more and more inexperienced facilitators holding sacred medicine circles. To remove the highly arduous and lengthy initiation process of serving such medicine is sac-religious and best and dangerous at worst. The foundation of Paititi is deeply rooted in holding with integrity the teaching of indigenous wisdom and sacred medicine work. The institute is pure in its methods as they honor the wisdom they are bringing to their brothers and sisters on this earthly plain.
