Elisa is a highly evolved Shipiba Ayahuasquera Maestra (shaman of the plant medicine ayahuasca). She's also a master of many other local Amazonian plant medicines. As a gifted spiritual medium, she's in communion with the plant spirits and commonly receives icaros (sacred healing songs) from various plants. Elisa comes from a long lineage of Shipibo healers. Both her parents and grandparents we're Shipibo shaman. Elisa is one of the most well known Shipibo shaman in Peru and she has a most beautiful voice. Christina has studied under Elisa to work with medicine and to create authentic and profound textiles. Christina is married to Darwin, a Shipibo shaman who leads aya ceremonies with Elisa. Norma has also studied plant medicine and textiles under Elisa. She's very tuned into the subtle energies of this work.
