Don Benito

Don Benito is a 64 year old Shipibo shaman. He has been working with Ayahuasca and plant spirit medicines for many years as taught to him by his uncle. Benito comes from the jungle town Pueblo Nuevo, which is located a one day boat ride up river from Pucallpa, Peru. He is a very kind and gentle man and this energy comes across in his icaros (ceremonial songs) and healing work.
