Maestro Feliciano


About The Teacher

Maestro Feliciano Marquez Pinedo is the eldest Son of Mama Rosa. Feliciano’s Shipibo name is Kanan Betsa which means: A man with a good profile and talented in business. After finishing primary school he went to work as a laborer in the Wood industy on the Tamaya River, along with his godfather Lucio Cabrera, who was a Mestizo healer. Lucio had a great influence on Feliciano and when he was 22 he started dieting plants under the guidance of his godfather. When Feliciano was 39 Years old he got very sick and sought out the help of local plant healer named Wakapoko, who treated him and passed his knowledge of medicinal plants to Feliciano. After this he began a 9 year apprenticeship with shaman Daniel Ramos. On his shamanistic voyage, Feliciano found a deep connection to Jesus Christ, the Bible and the Christian saints and angels. He often gives a blessing after singing his Icaros, showing that the Christian religion and the ancient traditions of Amazonian shamanism do not have to be mutually exclusive. Prior to working at the Pachamama Temple, Feliciano worked in multiple centers in the city of Tarapoto and other parts of Peru. Feliciano is always  cheerfull  and has a excellent sense of humor.
