Don Abraham Guevara

About The Teacher

Originally from the highlands of Peru, but grew up in the forest.

'In these times almost everybody went to a medicineman (curandero) when something was wrong' Abraham says. When he was ill his parents would take him to a local medicineman for a consult.

'These were the doctors in these times', Abraham explains.

As Abraham has been living most of his time in the forest he has learned a lot about the medicinal plants and trees found in the rainforest.

He is a great cultivator as well, a strong and knowledgeable man and always shows a great interest in visitors from other countries; usually he is willing to share and exchange knowledge.

Don Abraham is a recognized and respected person within the local community; a leader when it is about to defend and protect the rainforest from the illegal logging. With a corrupt (local) government, the community people understand that it is up to them to defend their natural resources.
