Born in Sweden as Henrik, but he is more known as Enrique around here. He came to the Peruvian Amazon after many years wandering in Sweden, USA, Spain and Costa Rica suffering depression.
He was a workaholic, gambler but also self medicating street drugs, as well as legal pharmacy drugs, such as benzodiazepines (xanax) and antidepressants. Nothing helped his depression or anxiety, not even 5 years in psychotherapy, until he found ayahuasca. Or eventually she found him.
Before building La Luna, Enrique lived with Don Guido and his family for 8 month in the small village clinic.
Enrique has participated and facilitated more than 500 ceremonies and has a deep understanding of the medicine and the work of the shamans that he is happy to share with our guests, and serves as a bridge between the modern western secular culture and the ancient amazon spiritual culture.
Enriques role at the center is managing the western aspects that is unfamiliar to the shamans.
Enrique is first aid and CPR certificated and used to work for 911 (112) in Sweden before he moved to the Amazon.
He is also involved in the Zendoproject by maps.org, where he works with psychedelic harm reduction and integration of challenging psychedelic experiences.
