      A strong mother and healer

    An awesome spiritual leader. Felt safe, secure and at one with everything and all during the ceremony. Wara really displays all the facets of healing your after, and provides a peaceful sanction to embrace the medicine. Nothing but love was shared, an amazing soul and human being!

    This woman is so connected to the ancestors and to her heart.. I love her guidance in our ceremonies. She also clears energy so amazingly.. Temazcal was cosmic and her leadership and knowledge is really deep and beautiful. Thank you for everything you really helped in my healing.. All the Love in the universe! Namaste

      Mi Hermana!

    I am so grateful to meet this beautiful young yet old woman healer. Wara possesses grace and generosity of soul and sprit yet a no-nonsense respect approach to working with the elementals, the medicines, the achichillas, grandmothers and grandfathers. I look forward to learning more with and from her as our Medicine Family grows.

      retiro chamanico 3 semanas

    Mi experience de 3 semanas de retiro chamanico con Felipe, Wara y Wayra fue realmente extraordinaria. Los dos sitios de la selva y de Allmakiri estan grandiosos para hacer el trabajo con las plantas maestras, y la peregrinacion en la isla del Sol... indescriptible de belleza. En la selva, mama Ayahuasca aceptanos en su casa. Todas la vibraciones de la medicina, y de los seres de la selva permiten una armonizacion despacio y profunda de nuestras vibraciones. El proceso del retiro me dio mas respuestas que creia llegar sobre mi vida spiritual y interior. Cada ceremonia se desarrollaba en total seguridad fisica y mental con nos chamanes que acompanaron nosotros. Ellos adaptaban el contexto con nuestras capacidades de recepcion y de comprehension. Sus corazones abiertos que se expresen en los maravillosos cantos nos guiaban en los planos sutiles con una cuerda de seguridad. No es posible de faltar la peregrinacion en la isla del sol, este sagrado sitio con el abuelito San Pedro, que abre nuestra conciencia a proposito de la magnificiencia de la pachamama que podemos sentir en todo nuestro cuerpo. La ceremonia final de la baila con el San Pedro y que termina con el temazcal en el sitio de Allkamari, es el mas grandioso momento del retiro, con un real renacimiento al mundo que habiamos preparado durante todo el retiro. Terminé el retiro, regenerada, como una otra persona, me sentio mas cerca de lo que soy, mas cerca de mi ser real, con una nueva vision del mundo. Los otros hermanos de nuestro circulo y los chamanes han participado por mucho a todo el proceso, y redescubrimos los lazos invisibles pero tanto fuerte que nos unen. Solo puedo anadir gracias a las personas que participaban a este cambio, a esta iniciacion, que quiero profundizar mas... el trabajo nunca esta terminado!!!! Allaya! Caroline C.

      Wara, the Evening Star

    My first Ayahuasca ceremony was with this woman, and I will forever be thankful for the care and passion with which she welcomed me to the world of her ancestors. I have further enjoyed her company at various other rituals of spiritual empowering: ayahuasca ceremonies, san pedro (wachuma) ceremonies, the Southern Sun-Moon Dance and the Puma-Katari pilgrimage at the Sun Island of the Titicaca Lake. From the mountains to the jungle she has always preserved the most re-assuring and beautiful smile, and her innate and selfless compassion is something that is not supported by study of divine scriptures but through her own experience and knowledge of the heart of the earth. Once, at the Wizard Mountain Jungle Retreat, during an Ayahuasca experience, I walked out of the temple in an attempt to go and watch the full moon. She followed me and stood by the path returning to the temple, waiting for me. I thought she had something to say to me, but when I caught with her she just smiled and said "just be careful with the ants... they are building a new road, see?". She is genuinely inspired by life, life of any sort, and, though her healing knowledge is circumscribed to the aid of her fellow men and women, her devotion knows no race, nor species. Her Ayahusaca ceremonies are some of the most beautiful I have experienced, her singing is sublime, and her counsels after the experience have always been spot-on insights into my own self.

      Wara is pure light!

    One of the deepest conections I've ever had with myself, I left the ceremony with a new point of view of life and all the answers I need to move on with my life after a long period of spiritual emptyness. I think God has a lot of ways to talk to us and one of these is the natural medicine and the nature forces. Wara guided me throught the hardest conection I experienced and also helped me getting my soul back, she is pure light!!
