About The Teacher

Pacco or P'aqo signifies a healer in the quechua language of Peru. His name was chosen with the intention he would one day follow his traditions and become a shaman or curandero. 

Begining his journey into plant medicines early on in life, twelve years ago he began treating people with plant medicines, namely san pedro and ayahuasca, as part of his tradition. To compliment his studies Pacco became a certified holistic therapist, with certifications in traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, chiropractic, Reiki studies and continues to study. His iniciation in Yoga and Eastern Vedic Philosophy was at Vaishnava Ashram outside of Lima, Peru. This training he recieved complemented knowledge of different master Ayahuasqueros, Onayas, Herbal shamans of the Amazon jungle of Peru Shipibos and Ashaninkas. From training alongside various maestros he has come to share the beauty of the sacred medicines and techniques he practices.
