Our Healers

 

Francisco Ventura

Shipibo-Conibo Master Healer

Maestro Francisco is part of the Shipibo-Conibo nation. This community is located, mainly, in the Ucayali Region in the Peruvian Amazon. His name in Shipibo language is “Xawan Tsoma” which means “Macaw taken in the palms”.

Francisco’s ancestors used to work with Ayahuasca and others traditional methods. Because of this, maestro Francisco inherited the legacy of the Shipibo-Conibo traditional knowledge. Hence, his skills allow him to use sacred plants for healing, protection and empowerment.

Francisco has 36 years of experience in the traditional medicinal plants practices. In addition, he has 24 years sharing Ayahuasca ceremonies. As a result, Maestro Francisco has traveled inside Peru and abroad to share his knowledge.

He started his healing journey when he was 22 years old. Currently, he belongs to a traditional medical hierarchical denomination. In particular, he is in the rank of “Onanya” of the “Meraya” lineage.

Maestro Francisco is also a shamanic trainer and director of the ONI NAI Spiritual Center. Thus, his mission is to help people to heal in a holistic way.

He works along with his daughter, Maestra Tessy Ventura. In every ceremony, their teamed spirits resound through every icaro they sing together.

Tessy Ventura

Shipibo-Conibo 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.

Sandra Tentiu

Founding Partner | Kambo Facilitator | Shipibo-Conibo Apprentice

Sandra started her healing journey when she found herself seeking a deeper understanding of life. It that moment, she felt lost in a highly competitive stress landscape.

Within her continuous journey of learning and working with the blessings of Pachamama, it was plant medicine that reconnected her to her true purpose. Thus, she found her mission and dedicated her life in service to the medicine. 

Sandra relies in the wisdom of Mother Earth, through Cacao and Kambo ceremonies. Moreover, she has a firm purpose: to awaken consciousness and anchor the Grid of Light for Earth. Also, Sandra shares the importance of reconnecting with Mother Earth. Furthermore, she shares that deep wisdom could be obtained through plant medicine ceremonies and connection to the Greater Truth. 

In addition, Sandra hosts a podcast, that is called “Divinely Guided Conversations”. This is a platform where she conducts interviews about spirituality, plant medicines and expanding the consciousness.
