Ayahuasca shaman and healer Sanango Sinchi Runa

Sanango is a Peruvian healer whose spiritual mastery is based in the union of Amazonian shamanism and Vedic philosophy. Over the course of 20 years, Sanango has performed thousands of Ayahuasca ceremonies to treat mental disharmony and the spiritual diseases that manifest as addiction and depression.

Repudiating the title of “Shaman” as its degraded in modern practice, Sanango is widely sought for his loving awareness of the physical and emotional cleansing that must take place to fully receive the curative benefits of shamanic ceremonies. Sanango performs master plant based healing that target the suffering of each one who turns to him for mending. He incorporates Eastern consciousness arts and realignment with the earth to move you into a present encounter with your inner universe and the ceaseless love of God.

Paige Flecher Yoga Teacher

Paige arrived to Sinchi Runa in 2016 and has gone through a year long master plant healing immersion process. Through her own healing experience with the master plants and life experiences she is able to deeply understand the human capacity of suffering and pain as well as joy and love. She aspires to aid those who come for healing in a relatable and compassionate way through serving the processes and helping with all accommodations.

Paige is a certified Hridaya hatha yoga and meditation teacher serving at Sinchi Runa through daily yoga, meditation, and pranayama. *Hridaya Yoga, the Yoga of the Spiritual Heart, is a spiritual path whose purpose is the revelation of our True Self, atman, or, as it is known in contemplative traditions, the Spiritual Heart. The practice of Hridaya Yoga allows us to live in the very “core” of existence, to feel the heartbeat of every moment of life, to know intuitively the eternal dimension of every moment. Students engaged on the path of Hridaya Yoga aspire to live in the Heart, in the Supreme Reality, in God, with God being experienced directly, beyond any conceptual and religious definitions.
