Maestra Lucinda Mahua Campos

About us

Maestra Lucinda is the eldest daughter of renowned Shipibo maestro Pascual Mahua Ochavano, born in the Shipibo village of Paoyhan or ‘Water of the Pearls’ located on the banks of the beautiful Ucayali river, north of Pucallpa.

Lucinda has been immersed in the medicine world of her family her entire life – since she was a tiny infant of 4 months old when her father opened her first learning dieta to bring her the advanced knowledge of the “tree of light” of her ancestors.

Now 55 years old, Lucinda is a confident and intelligent maestra, with a sweet and modest nature and a powerful reportoire of master plant dietas and advanced medicine knowledge. Her gentle Icaros belie a quiet power within, and her feminine energy of care and compassion evokes a feeling of being embraced in the calm flow of life. She is a tireless worker and a steadying presence in the intensity of the ceremony. Her Shipiba name Coshainbo means Powerful Woman.

Lucinda has worked with a variety of Ayahuasca centres in Iquitos and Pucallpa. She has 4 adult children and 8 grandchildren, and holds strong family values and ethics as well as a great sense of humour. We are very happy to have her presence, her knowledge, her laughter and her help at Caya Shobo.
