Our Team

This retreat journey to self-discovery through plant medicines is guided by loving and experienced Shipibo Master Healers and Western facilitators. Each of them has embarked on their path of healing and expansion of consciousness.

Our Healers
Maestro Francisco
Shipibo Master Healer

Maestro Francisco is a member of the Shipibo-Conibo nation, whose ancestors worked with Ayahuasca and other traditional methods. As a result, he inherited the legacy of Shipibo-Conibo traditional knowledge, allowing him to use sacred plants for healing, protection, and empowerment.

With 36 years of experience in traditional medicinal plant practices and 24 years of sharing Ayahuasca ceremonies, Maestro Francisco has traveled inside Peru and abroad to share his knowledge. He began his healing journey when he was 22 years old and currently holds the rank of “Onanya” of the “Meraya” lineage within the traditional medical hierarchical denomination.

In addition to being a shamanic trainer, Maestro Francisco is also the director of the ONI NAI Spiritual Center in Pucallpa, Peru. His mission is to help people heal holistically.

Maestra Tessy
Shipibo Master Healer
Maestra Tessy has been working with plant medicine for over 12 years. She started her path when she was 15 years old. 
Currently, Maestra Tessy works alongside her father, Maestro Francisco. Furthermore, she is  a powerful Onanya (Shipibo word for ayahuasca healer, or “one who has wisdom”). 
Her Shipibo name is “Kestenrama” which translates to “Sacred medicinal song called ícaro”
Together, Maestra Tessy and Maestro Francisco provide a deep and incredible medicine work. This work is rooted in an open heart and unconditional love.
At Inner Flight Retreat, we are grateful for their wisdom, beautiful friendship and the incredible beauty of their ícaros.
