Meet our Maestros

Maestro José López Sánchez

His name in Shipibo is Sany Meny "The mesenger" - 36yrs. Working with plant for 28 years. Favorit plant: Shiuahuaco

Jose Lopez Sanchez was born in the native community of Raoboya and named after his grandfather, the highly respected Meraya healer Jose Lopez. He was given this name with the intention of inheriting his medicine wisdom and knowledge.

At just 7 years old, Jose began to prepare physically and mentally to enter the world of plant medicine, and at 10 began his first dieta, which was a one-year dieta with a very powerful tree, Shihuahuaco. He then continued Niwe Rao and Noya Rao in succession, from 11-12 years old.

At 13, Jose’s grandfather passed away and Jose continued to learn with his uncle and his mother, the well-known and respected Maestra Ynes. At 16 he began healing people in his community, and then in Pucallpa and traveling within Peru. José now travels the world, in addition to working in the Amazon.

José is an incredibly powerful healer, who is able to unblock and release negative energies and find the root of where an individual’s issues is held, whether in body, energy, or spirit to align and harmonize the individual.  His role in his family is that of protector.  Jose  teaches and communicates in a unique, generous and accessible way.  He conducts his ceremonies and Dieta with extreme tenderness, kindness, compassion, clarity and firmness.  Despite his incredible power and knowledge, Jose remains deeply humble, passionate about the limitless possibilities of learning and sharing.

Maestro Francisco Tutucima Davila

He is 52yrs. Working with plant for 34 years. His favorite plant is his secret

Maestro Francisco Tutucima Davila was born in Pedera, close to Iquitos into a family of healers from the Cocama People.  At the age of 4, he settled with his family in the Shipibo village of Santa Ana near Pucallpa.

At 18 years old his sister fell sick.  Without the means to pay a healer to treat her or to teach him to heal, he decided to learn, in the old way, by himself.  After receiving guidance from his healer uncle on how to proceed he completed various many month long dietas and was ultimately able to cure his sister. Everything he knows was taught to him on this arduous path by the plant themselves.  

At age 20, he married a Shipibo woman from a healer’s family, became a father and began to work as a healer in his community.  He was then called to practice his healing in different communities, towns, cities and centers around Perou.

Maestro Francisco masters the skills of massage and bone adjustments.  He has extensive knowledge of plants for the preparation of remedies, flower bath, steambath and perfumes.  He is a gentle, loving, discreet and humble soul. His care, compassion, his joyous and tender smile are invaluable supports for people on a dieta as they heal and learn. “One has to suffer to learn, he says. I cried a lot in my becoming as a Maestro.  Because I learned the hard way I know how important it is to walk this path with help. So I like to closely accompany dieters in their processes, day by day. One has to help”.
