Maestro Francisco Vasquez

About us

Maestro Francisco has been working with the Shipibo medicine path since his early 40’s, and is now 65 years old.  Although he started his learning later than most, Francisco has rapidly progressed to become a truly high level, mature Maestro of the Shipibo tradition. His beautiful Icaros are sung in the more traditional and deeply poetic ‘Shirobehua’ style, where Francisco’s energy of happiness and hopefulness radiates out to eclipse negative energies in the Ceremony. He is always calm and solid in the middle of the storm. Francisco has experience working with several different Ayahuasca centres in Iquitos and Pucallpa. He is friendly and open and enjoys sharing stories and knowledge with visitors. We are very happy to have his presence and his help as a lead Maestro here at Caya Shobo.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
