Meet our healers and consultant.
I was born in the community of Aucayo, located 2 hours from Iquitos. From the age of 10, I learned my knowledge in curanderismo from my grandfather and teacher Enrique Garcia Mozombite, inheriting his knowledge and tradition. Since the beginning of my journey, I have respected very strictly my dietas and my ethics as a healer, by which I have been able to make a direct connection with my spiritual doctors. My code of ethics towards my participants and in my life may be summarized in 3 points: 1.- respect for the participant. 2.- respect for God, Mother Ayahuasca and Mother Nature. 3.- respect for dietas.
The focus and intention of my work is not only to produce visions, but to provide healing and the integration of the participants with the spiritual world. This helps them find physical health, peace, and harmony in their personal lives. My medicine Ayahuasca is prepared with different plants to treat several illnesses under the direct supervision and request of my spiritual doctors.
My role in healing is to be an intermediary of a divine healing: God, Mother Ayahuasca, Nature and my spiritual doctors; they are the healers that are expressed through my humble work. Now I am also fulfilling a very important role: passing my experiences and knowledge of traditional natural medicine to my students.
Erika has over ten years experineces working with ayahuasca. She first traveled to Peru in 2006, where ayahuasca crossed her path. Since then, she has been studying the teachings of the Amazonian plant kingdom and dieting various plants. After a time she found her way to Percy Garcia, who became her teacher. Erika has been leading her own ceremonies since 2012. Percy passed on to her his respect for dietas and for Mother Nature. Erika’s primary aim is to ensure a safe space (during and outside of ceremony) in which participants are able to heal themselves with the support of Mother Ayahuasca and other spiritual doctors.
From 24. September 2018 Erika will be working alongside Percy in DAS. She is the author of the book The Time Is Now: The Teachings of Ayahuasca published under her pen name.
Erika speaks four languages: Slovenian, English, Spanish and Serbian.
