Born in Sweden as Henrik, but he is more known as Enrique around here. He's been living full time in the jungle since year 2015, and arrived after many years wandering in Sweden, USA, Spain and Costa Rica suffering depression.
He tried all the western 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 a year with the shamans and their families in the shamanic clinic in the village.
He has participated and facilitated more than 1000 ayahuasca ceremonies and has a deep understanding of the medicine and the magical world of the shamans that he is happy to share with our guests.
He serves as a bridge between the modern western secular culture and the ancient amazon spiritual culture and translates between Shamanic Spanish to English or Swedish.
Enrique is first aid and CPR certificated and used to work at the emergency center 911 (112) in Sweden before he moved to the jungle 2015.
He is involved in the Zendoproject by MAPS, where he works with psychedelic harm reduction and integration of challenging psychedelic experiences.
Has has also studied harm reduction at
The International Center for Ethnobotanical Education, Research, and Service (ICEERS).
He spends his time as a student at Stockholm School of Theology, trying to understand the ancient mysteries and texts and compare them to the direct experience that ayahuasca delivers.
