“…Well, I will tell you the story of a remarkable person who lived many, many years in Latin America seeking shamans or knowledgeable men. He travelled through Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, where he lived and spent time with native people from different communities and races.
During that time, in all those places, he helped many people who needed healing, always in an altruistic manner and enjoying the process.
He stayed in Iguazú for about three years. He built his house together with his young wife in a wonderful place with magnificent fruit trees, near Mobororé (Indigenous Guaraní settlement), and he called it “Quinta el Chamán”. The contact with the Guaraní people was gratifying. He met there the famous Grandpa, a loved and respected shaman from the Guaraní community living in the 600 hectares in Iguazú.
During this time he visited Grandpa countless times. The shaman accepted him as a weird gringo partner who said awkward things, but in the end they got on very well. He joined him in his healing practices with Guaraní people from neighboring communities. Sometimes, they would travel up to 6 kilometers across the jungle.
From those trips he learned a lot about procedures that Grandpa used with his patients. He would learn from him those techniques that he would practice repeatedly with his patients. During almost thirty years, on and off, he enjoyed the company of the indigenous people who felt like family to him, and sometimes many of the non indigenous people that lived with him didn’t even know about his adventures, that’s how he was, he was always helping people in general and nobody would know it.
Currently, after many years and endless kilometers travelled, he has gone back to his home country, to do what he likes best, to keep helping people to heal and to heal themselves in a healing center called “Sanaconsciencia”, where he takes care of many people with health issues, in his usual altruistic way .
He lives happily with his wife, who has been with him always, unconditionally helping him in everything he needed, including the hard construction work in the wonderful places that both of them built and always remembering and being lovingly grateful to all those people they met in their journey, both those who helped them and those who harmed them, because from them he learnt the most.
“ TO HELP AND NOT ASK ANYTHING IN RETURN
IS TO PROGRESS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ”
“I’m not a shaman but that is what I’d like to be when I get older…
and we named it thinking in calling the attention of all those shamans
or people interested somehow in that world”
Manuel and Rocío have returned to Spain, their homeland, after living here more than three wonderful years. Nowadays, they are working hard in their new project you can visit at www.sanaconsciencia.com.
Tinto, Ronda, Nena, the great Curro and Pequeño as well... they are the beautiful pets who are part of the story.
Thank you very much for sharing precious moments and conversations.
Warm regards from here, Ramiro.
