Our Healers 

Francisco Ventura
Pucallpa, Peru
Shipibo-Conibo Master Healer
 
Maestro Francisco is part of the Shipibo-Conibo nation. 
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
Pucallpa, Peru
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.
