Gumercindo Galindo

About The Teacher

  Gumercindo is the Curandero who leads the Ayahuasca ceremonies on our retreats. He comes from a long line of traditional shaman of the Ucayali River in the Peruvian Amazon. ‘Gume’ carries a playful energy yet conducts a powerful ceremony carried out in the traditional way as of his ancestors. Gume has devoted his life to healing through the ancient knowledge and shamanic rituals of the Amazon. He comes from the lineage of ‘Paleros’ which means he has dieted intensely many strong tree medicines. Gume’s Maestros include his father Don Roldan Galindo and Don Julio Llerena, both well known Palero Curanderos of the Upper Ucayali.  He drank Ayahuasca for the first time when he was 12 years of age and his knowledge of natural Amazonic plant remedies is vast. When he is not in the Sacred Valley he resides with his family in the jungle by the Ucayali River. During his ceremony he sings icaros (healing songs) accompanied by his Shacapa and carries out individual healing work. He plays guitar and sings powerfully. We are very lucky to work with Gumercindo, a shaman of great integrity with an unwavering energy of love and light.
