Matilda trained humbly with these plants and became a “Curandera”. She started to treat people from her own community, they approached her with all kinds of physical ailments, energetic and mental disorders.
Through her dreams, she receives messages about how to heal her patients. Even when she concentrates during a ceremony, she can move into someone’s past and also get a glimpse of that person’s future, to understand what action needs to be taken in the process of healing a patient or patients.
As a single mother, she moved to Iquitos to work, to give her children a good education. She first started working with local patients and eventually moved to foreigners who would come to Iquitos in search of healing or even shamanic training.
She helped many people with all kinds of health and mental problems. She then started working with entire groups of foreign travelers in Western retreat centers.
Her wish was her own shamanistic center, where she would be in full charge herself and could work as she wanted with the passageros.
She looks back with gratitude to that period. Now she can fully come into its own in her own center, which she has managed to realize with our support.
She is now over 60 years old and still practices her shamanistic path. She continues to follow Dietas to strengthen herself as a shaman. Her Icaros are inspiring and she sings and treats people with lots of love, good vibes and harmony with the purpouse to heal people and open their vision.
Matilda is always positive, always smiling and confident in the beautiful work she does. She always thanks her grandfather for learning all his traditions and for being a kind and gentle teacher.
Matilda has helped countless women with female problems. She learned her lessons from her mother, who was also an obstetrician. She took over her practice at a young age and still serves as a shamanic midwife in the community.
All these experiences have allowed her to develop into a very skilled healer who lives her dream full of love and passion to help heal Western people in her own center.
