Don Diego is the master shaman of Sachavacay, he fully embodies the ancient healing traditions of the Amazonian curanderos (traditional healers). He is a man dedicated to uncovering the most profound truths that this life has to offer, which has propelled him on a life-long path of learning. At a young age, he was readily identified as a pure-hearted vessel into which the age-old wisdoms of the Amazon were transmitted, and he spent his formative years apprenticing to elder shamans throughout the region.
A diligent student of the Amazonian master plants, Don Diego has internalized the lessons of his masters, wisdom poorly understood in other cultures, that the plants themselves are the purest teachers. Most of what he has learned has been revealed to him in moments of solitude and deep introspection due a mixture of Divine grace and relentless dedication to his path. His body, mind and spirit have become a repository of the magnificent knowledge gleaned directly from a vast pharmacopoeia of plant medicines, and he has learned how to apply this knowledge to spiritual evolution.
