Naysha is an internationally-known Peruvian Curandera. Curandera (or Curanderita) is the name pertaining to female shamans and healers of the Amazon. There are many different kinds of medicine women depending on their specialty of focus – they all have their own different kinds of tools, techniques, and ways of healing.
Naysha heals through medicinal plants, ceremonies, music, and traditions and is adept in the shamanic world. Her connection with plant medicine started before she was born. Her mother could not have children so she, like many Peruvians, went to the shamans to find healing after the medical system had failed her.
The shamanic treatment was successful and Naysha was conceived. Naysha, later, worked as a lawyer for the Peruvian government. This was when she realized that to change society, the individual must first change from the inside. She felt a calling and thus quit her job to go to the Amazonian jungle. There, she remained for several years, learning different healing techniques from the plants and studying with the shamans on how to work with the plant’s, life then brought her from the jungle to the very north of Sweden, north of the polar circle.
For two years, she lived together with the Sami people – an indigenous community of shamans where they shared their ways of living with her. From there, she went back to the Amazon once again to continue her Shamanic training. These last 4 years, she has been traveling around Europe, Asia, and South America holding ceremonies and sharing the healing ways of her teachers from the Amazon through an organization she started, named Taita Inti.
