About The Teacher

James Arevalo is a shipibo shaman born in Puccallpa in 1972. He comes from an old lineage of healers. When he was 18, James started his apprenticeship under the guidance of his grand father Benito Arevalo. Since 2006 he has been deepening his knowledge of the traditional medicine with his father Guillermo Arevalo. Through them he has had the opportunity to connect to the ancient healing ways of his people and to one of the oldest lineage of shipibo shamans. The Arevalo family is a very old family of healers and shamans.

He has been working for many years with westerners under the supervision of both his grand father and his father. Through his 24 years of training and practice he has gathered a lot of experience.

James carries the Knowledge of the Shipibo people and the ways of the old shamanic school.

Since 2010 he runs his own center Luz Kosmika. He also holds workshops and offers healing sessions all over the world (Russia, Lithuania,Austria, France).
