From the shipibo tribe, Celia single mother of six kids has managed to follow her heart to become a curandera.
She started at a very early age when she was 15; she was already asking her grandfather an elder shipibo shaman to teach her, at the beginning he refused to tell her how much responsibility is needed it for it and that he is already too old to be able to give her what is needed.
Celia did not care about this, she insisted so much to her grandfather that he put her on her first diets and ayahuasca ceremonies where she got her first Ikaros ( spiritual music).
Later in life she needed to stop working with the medicine because became a mother , when they were grown up she once more found a teacher in Pucallpa, her native land and there she continue on her journey, now she is one of the best medicine women you can find in Iquitos area.
Celia´s indigenous singing is one of the most beautiful experiencis in a ceremony, her kindness and love can be truly felt without spoken words. Her presence brings light and unconditional love.
Celia and Naysha met through the documentary project that Naysha is running on the internet: Medicine Woman, Curanderita – The Woman’s Awakening.
Celia was one of the medicine women that chosse to take part in the project and collaborate, because she believes the shamanic knowledge can help many people and that men and women are equally important, when working with the plants she said, female and male energy must be balanced, if we have too much of one then we are in the ego, and we must live from our hearts.
