For over ten years I have been accompanying committed men and women into the heart of the Peruvian rainforest to work with Asháninkan healer and teacher Juan Flores Salazar. This year I feel a deep calling to focus this work just on women and their paths, or aotsi tsinane, in Asháninkan language. That’s the reason I am reaching out to you.
I met maestro Juan Flores in 2004, when studying Vegetalismo, a traditional medical system that works with plant sentiences to address illness and other imbalances. From breast cancer recovery to restoring back a sense of inner wholeness, I have witnessed the varied range of action of this shamanic oriented tradition. Moreover, through the years, my path as a person, a woman, mom, teacher, and healer have enormously expanded and deepened through the ways Juan holds. And I’d like to share this with you.
I am inviting a group of 8-10 women to join me in Lima on June 9th. We’ll leave early next morning to Pucallpa and into Mayantuyacu, Juan Flores’s center. We’ll return to Lima on June 21st, which will give us about twelve full days at the center.
