Urias Garcia Junta

Curandero
Urias’s Shipibo name is “Neten Beso” meaning “to awaken the world or the universe”.

Urias was born in the native community of Nuevo Nazare. He is the father of two boys of 8 and 5 years old.

He comes from a lineage of medicine practitioners, with various family members practicing with the medicine and he started working with plants when he was very young. When he was 5 years old, he remembers being sick and his mum took him to a ceremony to receive healing from his uncle.
He remembers being enchanted by the icaros, and that in the morning he was singing the icaros he had his uncle sing to him the night before. It was at this point that the family identified that he would one day be a healer.

His motivation to work a healer is to help people heal and to follow his ancestry and continue his lineage. He is sad that today many Shipibo don’t value their roots and cultural traditions, so he would like to continue this tradition so that his traditional customs are not lost. He loves being in the communities with the elder healers, listening to the stories of his people and culture.

He really enjoys working at the Temple as he feels the team working as a family/in community, sharing and showing the wisdom and love that we feel for patients.
