Frank is an Amazonian maestro palero and maestro ayahuasquero. He works from a small place in Iquitos where he specializes in healing people in his community with the help of his spiritual guides and the medicines of the forest. He is also the co-founder of Amazon Sacred Medicine, working with healing retreats in the Sacred Valley, Peru and other international destinations. Although young, Frank is considered a strong shaman and a skilled traditional Amazonian doctor, healing many illnesses of body and spirit.
Frank was formally initiated at age 9, and started his dietas when he turned 12 years old. He was initiated by his uncle and subsequently met other teachers who helped him specialize in his knowledge. Frank has spent extended periods in isolation and fasting (shamanic dietas) as part of his training. When he was 15 years old, he spent 6 months on his own deep in the forest. This is where his intimate knowledge of the plants from the jungle crystallized. He has dieted countless trees and plants as part of his training.
He was chosen by his ancestors to carry their lineage. His great grandfather, whom he never met in person, guided him in spirit step-by-step throughout his training. He then met his other Spirit teacher, maestro Orlando, bringing a new dimension to his work. With the help of his two main Spiritual Doctors, Frank is able to heal difficult cases of sorcery and negative energy, as well as heal many illnesses.
He is most committed to live the path of medicine, always respecting the restrictions required. His real passion is being of service and witnessing people being healed. Humble, courageous and determined are key words in describing Frank.
