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 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 Don Guido and his family in the small village clinic.
Today he is married to Nina and they live at the center raising a new born.
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 for 911 (112) in Sweden before he moved to the Amazon.
He is involved in the Zendoproject by maps, where he works with psychedelic harm reduction and integration of challenging psychedelic experiences.
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.
