Photo of Kurikindi of the Kitchwa

Kurikindi is a Kichwa Amazonian Shaman. He was born in the rainforests of Ecuador and into to an ancient line of shamanic families. Kurikindi has over 36 years of experience. Since very young he was immersed in the shamanic way of life. He feels that growing up in his atmosphere was a great privilege and an honour.

His family travelled long distances and to other countries in South America to spend time with shamans from other cultures and nationalities to learn and share knowledge and experiences. Kurikindi had the unique opportunity to learn from, and work a long side both male and female shamans as both of his parents, grandparents and great grandparents were practicing shaman.

Kurikindi's life changed dramatically when he was 12 years old. He had to save the life of a powerful and well known Shaman, his father. After this and although still very young, he was recognised as an adult practicing shaman. Until then, he had only been an apprentice.

Approaching 50 years old, still young by most shamanic standards, he finds himself here in the UK, ready to talk, to teach, to learn and to listen.
