About The Teacher

Francisco and Maricela live in Pulcallpa along the Ucayali river. They are devoted on the path of healing, and working with plant medicine. As the lineage is passed on, they both received the call of service at a young age, and since then, have been helping people from all over the world. 

They have worked in Ayahuasca centers in Iquitos and the Sacred Valley, offering ceremonies, plant diets, and daily plant medicines to guests in the retreats. They continue to guide people in Pulcallpa, and other locations around Peru. 

Their Icaros are incredibly beautiful, and speak to your heart in unforgettable ways. The combination of a male and female maestro is enriching, and allows us to connect with deep unbalance within, to learn to love ourselves, and bring that love to our lives.

      Beautiful Medicine

    Thankful to have attended a retreat where both Francisco and Maricela held the ceremonies. The combination of hearing both of their voices helped so much in my time with them. I have drank with several different Shamans and I will say that I would definitely attend with them again if possible. Their quiet and compassionate demeanor was a special thing to feel. They start in a gentle way and each ceremony built up and up. One time I sat even straighter as I felt my heart like a magnet to Maricela's Icaro. Healing and profound. Much gratitude.


Why Retreat?

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

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary
