About us

Winister is the second master shaman that we work with. Winister was born in 1964. He is the son of Romulo the Banco Ayahuasquero. In Winisters’ words this is his history, “My first experience with Ayahuasca was when I was 15 years old, I was in school and working at that time. In my first ceremony I had a lot of visions both positive and negative, I saw a lot of serpents and heard the sound of Ayahuasca coming from the earth. After that I was dieting with Ayahuasca for one year, then I had to temporarily leave my apprenticeship for some time to enter the military. After I returned from the military I went to visit my father on his farm and decided to continue dieting with Ayahuasca because I was going down a bad path in my life. I decided to make Ayahuasca my doctor and began again my diet, but stronger of no salt, sugar, spicy and greasy foods and no sexual relations. This diet I continued far away from my family deep in the jungle because the spirits of Ayahuasca through my dreams and ceremonies showed me that I was going to be a master shaman…
