Moyano Centre of Ancestral Amazonian Medicine was established by a world-famous shaman Guillermo Arevalo, spiritual leader of Shipibo-Conibo community. Maestro Guillermo is a representative of a shaman dynasty preserving his tribe’s sacral knowledge transmitted from generation to generation. In our Centre you will feel the link of times: Maestro Guillermo’s mother Maria Arevalo, his son Reader and other experienced shamans work here. All of them for many years help people to heal from physical diseases and overcome mental pain. Moyano Centre attracts those who are interested in traditional Amazonian medicine, those who wish to enrich their experience by participating in ceremonies with sacred plants such as Ayahuasca and San Pedro as well as those who is ready to dedicate years of life to becoming a curandero. Shaman power, skills and curandero experience guarantee safety of the ceremonies with Ayahuasca and other master plants. Those participating in shaman ceremonies often face the dark side of their nature, dual nature of master plants having both light and dark sides, consequences of psychological traumas as well as maleficent magic impacts. Shaman helps the patient to go through such complex and often painful experience, thus avoiding the negative impact of all these factors. Protection and support in the buildup of own energy resources is the shaman’s function allowing patient to avoid risks associated with inclusion in spiritual Amazonian practices. The reality of Amazonian world includes both light and dark shamans (brujos). Ceremonies with such shamans are dangerous and can have the most unpleasant consequences for those who carelessly approached them. We encourage you to give serious consideration to selection of reputable shaman

Ayahuasca ceremonies

Ayahuasca (spirit liana, liana of the dead) is herbal brew traditionally used by indigenous peoples of Amazonia. Since ancient times shamans drank it to communicate with spirits, develop gift of healing and clairvoyance. Participants of the ceremonies gained special abilities that helped them to adapt in harsh jungle conditions and live in harmony with their fellow tribesmen. In our time, ayahuasca effects came under scrutiny of Western scholars: psychologies, physicians and neurophysiologist who study ayahuasca’s properties enabling its medicinal potential, ability to cause altered states of consciousness having beneficial impact on physical and mental state and allowing for supersensual cognition. However, ayahuasca is not a medicine one can take independently or by a doctor’s prescription. Ayahuasca ceremony is a sacral ritual inconceivable without a guide - shaman able to support a person who entered the world of spirits. The location of ceremony plays an important role: selva with its plants and animals, waterfalls and lagoons is not just a background – it nourishes shamans, their apprentices and patients at delicate energy level. Ayahuasca ceremonies with experienced and caring shamans in Moyano centre surrounded by favoured nature is a unique opportunity to gain new experience in utterly supporting environment.


Medical Prevention and treatment

Shipibo is one of the largest ethnic groups of Peruvian selva residing in the areas around Pucallpa and in the in the Ucayali River Basin. Tradition Shipibo medicine is based on in-depth knowledge of medicinal plants growing in abundance in the jungle, as well as ancient beliefs on dependence of human’s physical and mental health upon the spirit realm. Shaman can connect a person with plant spirits thereby ensuring the recovery. Similar to European herbalism, Amazonian ancestral medicine uses extracts, herbal infusions or plants au naturel, however, in contrast to European culture, Amazonian shamans communicate with plants as with their partners and teachers through visions, dreams and altered state of consciousness. Unlike European medicine, written transfer of knowledge does not exist in Amazonia. In order to obtain sacral knowledge and become a healer, shamans’ apprentices undergo a long-term diets under supervision of experienced curanderos. Diet, understood as following certain lifestyle rules including certain food restrictions, is the way of treating patients with various somatic and mental disorders. Shipibo are distinguished by relatively greater openness to the contacts with Europeans compared to many other Amazonian tribes, as well as willing to share the ancient medical knowledge. In our Centre you can have firsthand experience of the traditional medicine of the indigenous peoples of this area, the medicine considering human being as an integral psychophysical system. We offer you to undergo detox treatment on physical and energy level, harmonize all processes in the body and in interaction with the world and, eventually, have a happier and fuller life.

San Pedro Ceremonies

Unlike ayahuasca growing in the jungle of Peru, San Pedro cactus is a plant growing in mountainous regions of South America. In the wild, it occurs in Peruvian Andes, Chilly, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador. Ceremonies with San Pedro or Vachuma, as it is called is part of the culture of the largest ethnic group in Peru – Qechua. Over 3 thousand years the cactus was used in medicine and in shamanic rituals for communicating with the world of spirits. San Pedro ceremonies, in contrast to ayahuasca, are usually held during the daytime. Its effect lasts nearly as long as ayahuasca’s – about 6-8 hours, however, the effect is relatively milder: it gives the state of meditative calmness, inner silence at the same time opening the sense of oneness with the world. Usually, there is no intense cleansing processes during ceremonies compared to ayahuasca. In Moyano Centre San Pedro ceremonies are held as way of saying thank you to Mother Earth (Pachamama), helping to cultivate love, respect and acceptance in the heart. Through opening to the world, nature and all living creatures a person comes to mental and physical health. The content of ceremonies with master plants is usually defined by the shamans and this is true for San Pedro as well. Ways of cactus application vary depending on the region and shamanic traditions. In traditional medicine San Pedro is used not only internally but also as external remedy: it’s applied to inflammatory or injured areas, reducing pain.


  • Janet Ruggerio, USA

    This is my first time in Ancestral Medicine Centre in Tingo Maria. I’m learning so much. Maestro Guillermo and Reader have opened their beliefs to us, students. They use the medicine plants in so many different ways. It’s very relaxing here, everyone is very welcoming. It’s very beautiful and we are able to connect deeply with the plants and each other as students as well as with the maestros to heal, to learn, how to connect with spirits. I’m personally working through a lot of grief that I got in my life and I just feel it’s being stripped away, it’s so beautiful. I’ve tried other ways of coping with this grief and it carried through my life a long time. And this is the most effective and fast relief from it that I’ve experienced. There is a physical healing, mental healing and spiritual healing all combining together to make my heart feel whole, solid and ready to move on. It’s been incredibly powerful. We’ve been taken to beautiful waterfalls and we’ve talked about all these plants. We’ve gone to the plants to meet them personally, to smell them, touch them and we are learning about all different ways to bring these spirits together in ourselves and in the world. It’s highly recommended

  • Christina Minogna, USA

    My name is Christina and I’ve been setting with the medicine for about 3 years now – always with Maestro Guillermo and the medicine has been so instrumental in my life and I am so grateful to the Shipibo culture and to this ancestral passing down of information through generations to help heal people. It’s extremely powerful and I’ve been able to open places that I tacked away inside my soul and I wasn’t even aware of for many-many years. The quality of my life with my family, friends, my community and work has improved significantly and the information that I’ve gained and the knowledge for being a spirit. I’ve sat with Reader for the first time and he is wonderful. He is full of life, funny, magnanimous in every senses of the words. Apart from appreciating him and his education and how passionate he is about what he does to pass on this ancestral knowledge he was given, he is so powerful and it shws not only in teachings, but also in ceremonies. His attention, his care and ability to show up for you at just right moment and allow you to work through whatever you are working on, is incredible. As a shaman, a healer and as a person I am grateful for the opportunity to sit with him and feel that I can totally relax into the experience and into the moment because I know that I am so well cared for and in such great hands. This experience has been unforgettable.

    I was very much struck with the first impression of the work with Maestro Reader. It was his sensitivity in the sense that he would come to me during a session and he would know what I needed if I had a very difficult time, hard work or I was exhausted. I’ve been crying a lot during the work: this is what the medicine is doing, trying to clean us. He would know what to do to sooth me, giving me comfort and helping me to find lights and happiness. I realized that when I was working with him, he was helping me to find a balance. When I met him last September in 2018, I was just a beginner. I was introduced to the medicine by chance and I didn’t know what it was about, and he was very patient as a person (I’m not talking about the shaman) explaining about the medicine and always ready to listen to the questions and answer them calmly. It was extremely important to me to know that I could talk to him. I was talking about the balance of emotions: he could sooth me or bring me strength when I was feeling tired. Also, I remember having a stomach ache during the ceremonies and he would know what to do to unblock and it was really efficient. I also have a memory when during a ceremony I couldn’t concentrate: it was so intense, so I started to get confused. He came to me and he started finding points on my skull and I remember that I was so impressed because the visions became very clear and I could really focus. Eventually he taught me how to do it myself, so during following ceremonies the work was easier for me being able to help myself. Another amazing example was one night when I was going to work, but there was some sort of a black screen in front of me. I was distressed and after a few hours I’ve asked Reader to come and help me. He sat next to me and started smoking his mapacho and do his rituals. He started singing icaros. And it was like he was lifting this black screen covering a landscape behind it. He was lifting this fog and I could clearly see my vision and my landscapes. I was so grateful. Of course, I am a beginner, but Reader helped me a lot as a professional and as a person. He has the generosity and always wants to share and explain, filling the words with positive energy. He’s got a fantastic sense of humor which is very important when you have to work hard and heal people. Sometimes it can be very difficult, and he would always have a little word or joke which makes everybody laugh and feel joyful even if you work for hours and concentrate. I am very thankful for everything he is teaching us.

  • Brian Emery, Hawaii

    Aloha, my name is Brian Emery from Hawaii, north shore of Oahu. I came to Peru 10 days ago. It’s my second time here, in this beautiful healing centre. I’m very blessed to be here. Short topic about Reader. He is absolutely full of knowledge. He is born into ancestral medicine. He is very connected to the plants, to Mother, to knowledge, to wisdom and he is teaching the knowledge of different plants that he’s learned through his life. He has shared so much knowledge with us. He made it very easy to understand. He takes time to answer questions, and he takes us to the nature to show us the plants and teach us the knowledge. I am so grateful for everything he shared with me which allowed me to learn and help myself, my family and community in back in Hawaii. He is amazing person and he is an ancient soul trapped in human flesh. Love you, brother Reader.

  • Ytala, Hawaii

    Hi, my name is Ytala, I’m originally from Peru. I’m here in Ancestral medicine Centre Moyano. I would like to talk about Reader, who is the son of Guillermo. Despite his age (he is not older than 30 years old) he has a lot of knowledge about plants and the medicine. I feel proud to see people of Shipibo culture who pass this information to us wit the passion and love. For the past 10 days I’ve learned a lot from him. I can see that he tries to understand our mind. I am in the group of people who came from all around the world. We are like little kids who try to learn and receive healing. Honestly, I think that he’s doing a great job and I am very happy to be here.

  • Ben, USA

    My name is Ben and I’m here at Ancestral Medicine Centre in Moyano, Peru, just outside of Tingo Maria. I guess I’ll just tell you how I got here and how my experience has been. I met Maestro Guillermo just this past October. It was my first experience with ayahuasca. It was profound. I had three-night experience that was the best nights in my life and there was a major breakthrough. I also have a health challenge that I’m working through – an autoimmune disease and I learned from several people that we on our retreat in October that you can come here and cure diseases that Western medicine can’t help you heal. And that on top of amazing effects of the ayahuasca experience I knew I needed to come down here so I’m here for a month. This is just a beginning of my journey, but it’s been incredible. There are amazing shamans here - Maestro Guillermo’s son Reader is young but he’s way beyond his age: he’s an incredible shaman, I think he’s going to be one of the best in the world. Maestro Segundo is also here all the time and he’s blown me away, he helped me in ways with my relationship, with my health, just totally an amazing spirit. I think this centre is an incredible place, it’s very special, it’s located in the mountains, in the jungle of Peru, just in the middle of nature. It’s a great place to come and heal and to become the best person you can be. So, if you’re thinking about coming down here, I highly recommend it and best wishes to you!
