Luisa Sanchez Catalina
Luisa comes from the village of Santa Rosa on the River Pisque. She has 2 sons of 16 and 21 years, both of whom are studying. Her father is a well respected traditional healer in Rio Pisce and has been her main teacher, along with her husband. She started dieting before she had her first child and was inspired to learn by her father and husband.
Her greatest inspiration was her love of people and her love of plants and helping people who were sad or ill with plants was a wonderful way to bring her two loves together.
Her favorite aspect working as a healer is singing icaros in ceremony, seeing how the medicine she carries within really helps people who are struggling. She finds her work deeply fulfilling and has worked as a healer in the community for many years.
She came to the Temple in 2023 and is now enjoying working with Westerners for the first time.
