Who We Are?
In Peru, the term commonly used for shamans is maestro, and healers are commonly referred to as curanderos. Ceremonies at Mai Niti are held under the guidance of powerful male and female healers from the Shipibo Tribe: Maestro Leonardo and Maestra Lucila. Both well known and respected as skilled curanderos in their Shipibo community of San Francisco, the two now work together to bring their healing to the wider world. Compassion is the force that drives them to do the work that they do, Leonardo and Lucila are dedicated entirely to the path of Curanderismo.
Leonardo has been working with the plants since the age of 12. Now, aged 85, he has over 70 years of experience with plant medicine and ayahuasca.
After rigorous training from Leonardo, strict dietas, and many years in isolation, Lucila has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a Maestra.

What Mai Niti Offers?
We are a family-run ayahuasca and plant medicine healing center based in San Francisco, a native Shipibo community in the Amazon Jungle region of Peru. Ayahuasca and other plant medicines have their origins in these lands, as do Maestros Leonardo and Lucila. The family has been working as curanderos (healers) for many generations and has a profound depth of ancestral wisdom and knowledge with respect to the plants and healing. Their aim is to awaken you to your true potential by expanding your consciousness and healing your mind, body, and spirit.

Father and daughter Maestros, with lots of compassion and open mind to new things. Love the family and will come back for the authenticity and love that is shared.
This is a safe environment, created by experienced shaman/healers. Quite an authentic experience. I'm coming out a better human being. Thank you Lucila.
The experience is beyond words. I felt that I really gained more than I anticipated and I would like to believe that I came away the better for it. If u have the opportunity I think at the very least you can pay them a visit.
