The Inkanima Lineage
Inkanima and Metsa Wesna the Great were a medicine couple that lived in Paoyhan (Shipibo comunity of the Ucayali river region) around the time period of 1920-2000. This pictures are the only ones that could be recovered.
In the community of Paoyhan they were conducting a very simple life. Inkanima the Great was a fisherman and also was working in his field growing bananas yucca etc. Metsa Wesna was mainly taking care of the four children and grandchildren and as all Shipibo mothers she was also creating traditional embroiled textiles.
The community of Paoyhan did and still does not have electricity and running water so the life style was very simple and very in tune with mother nature. The all community it was and still it is completely dependent on the river for fishes and water and on plants for food and healing. In fact, no doctor is present in the community and for many pathologies and disease the people still rely on traditional plant medicine. Paoyhan is also the community that bear the higher number of curanderos family lineage and among them there are the most prestigious names.
Inkanima the Great
Inkanima the Great studied plant medicine all of his life. He has dieted for years years many plants among them also the legendary tree Noia Rao (Flying tree).
He attained the higher level of mastership called Moraya, Awakened Master, immortal teacher, with high degree of Wisdom and Powers. He was also a very powerful healer (Onaya) and healed in his life many people also coming form very far looking for him and his healing. He used to say that to heal you need to love with all your heart.
Last but not least he was a really great teacher too and some of his apprentices became some of the most powerful, famous and influenced Shipibo healer of Peru.
Another amazing information about Inkanima the Great is that he was fluent not only in Shipibo and Spanish but also in Quechua! This is like a mystery considering that he basically never leaved Paoyhan!
Metsa Wesna the Great
Metsa Wesna was helping him in ceremonies and assisting in the healing. She was spiritually guided by Inkanima. As a Medicine couple, the medicine within them was shared, they were like one body, one mind and soul. Metsa Wesna was full of love and joy and she walked the medicine path always next to Inaknima.
Still they are together in the spirit world guiding us.
Inkanima (Sergio Castro Maldonado) was born 1985 in the Shipibo community of Pahoyan, Peru.
He was born with the ability of consciously traveling dimensions. In his childhood he couldn’t control this gift properly and many time he was found lying on the ground unable to move while at the same time he was astral traveling.
His grandfather, (Inkanima The Great) must have realised pretty soon about his grandson´s gift and started teaching him about plant medicine and shamanism when he was eight years old. Inkanima started attending plant medicine ceremonies at the age of eight and started leading ceremonies and when he was fifteen.
The relationship between Inkanima and his grandfather is still very strong, his grandfather in fact keeps watching over and guiding Inkanima on the medicine path although he has already physically disincarnated many years ago.
Inkanima has received the ‘don’ or ancestral knowledge, power and wisdom from his grandfather. He also has dieted many plants and keeps dieting regularly.
In his life he had been through many difficult and very harsh experiences. He managed to heal the traumas and overcome every situation thanks to his strength and thanks to the help of the medicine. This together makes Inkanima a very strong healer and spiritual teacher (Onanya and Moranya). He is working from a very deep loving heart space and he has a very ancient and deep knowledge of the Shipibo herbalist art.
Metsa Wesna (Elena Cristiano) was born in Italy.
After a life crisis, while she was studying Biotechnology, System Biology and Molecular Biology, Elena started to change her life completely.
She started studying and diving deep into spiritual subjects. Became a Kundalini yoga teacher and very soon she found her way to the plant medicine.
After a lot of self work and healing, she finally started her apprenticeships as a curandera (healer).
One of most important point in the spiritual journey was, when she met Metsa Wesna The Great.
The meeting happened during a ceremony where she felt that she actually was embodying a very old curandera of the Shipibo tribe. Her bones were aching, especially her knees, all her body was soaring like if she got instant rheumatism, she was also feeling overwhelming tired. The old ‘abuela’ (grandmother) said to her: “when you will receive my name I will pass to you all my Wisdom and Power”
Five months after that ceremony Elena met for the first time in Europe Inaknima. At that time Inkanima was holding a plant diet and Elena was participating and training with him. During the first diet her shamanic name came very strongly in ceremony, Inkanima gave her the name of his grandmother Metsa Wesna. After she received the name a lot of wisdom and knowledge started flowing.
The ‘don’ was passed astrally from Metsa Wesna The Great (that was already deceased).
Sanken Tsoma (Markus, born 1979 in Germany) has been working intensively and regularly for several years with various types of plant medicine and shamanic techniques.
Since 2013 he is organizing together with his partner Metsa Yaka retreats in various European countries.
In 2015 both foundet the School of Mysteries, which was the platform for their retreats until 2019.
During this time Sanken Tsoma was taught in shamanic diets by the teacher plants from the Amazon and Europe as well as from several indigenous teachers.
His teachers, who initiated him into their healing lineages, are the Shipibo Maestro Inkanima (from the Peruvian Amazon) and the Q’ero healer Don Eduardo Chura Apaza (from the Inca tradition of the Peruvian Andes).
After having the honor of receiving the former medicine name of his teacher Inkanima, in 2017 Sanken Tsoma got permission from Inkanima and from Don Eduardo, to share his medicine work with the world.
Sanken Tsoma is connected to the Inkanima lineage and guided in his medicine work from the non physical world by the grandparents of this lineage Inkanima “the Great“ and Metsa Wesna “the Great“.
Since 2017 he lives in Andalusia / Spain, where he deepens his work with the plants.
In 2019 Sanken Tsoma and Metsa Yaka finally founded the association and non-profit-organization Visiones, wwhich now forms the foundation of their work.
Désirée Dior “Metsa Yaka” was born in Germany in 1985. Since a very young age she felt drawn to the mystics of the Universe and mind expanding medicines.
As she had finally her first Ayahuasca experience, she felt so strongly connected to the roam of the plants and went through an intense out of body initiation process to her path as medicine women.
The next years she went herself on a profound healing journey out of depressions and anxiety guided and supported by the sacred medicine.
In 2016 she became initiated by her teacher Inkanima in the Shipibo Conibo lineage of Inkanima “the Great” and Metsa Wesna “the Great”, the abuelos that are still guiding from the non physical roam.
She is having dietas with various Master Plants every year in order to heal, purify and learn further and further.
The other big part in her life is her very strong connection to the animal medicine. They have accompanied her, her whole life as loving friends and wise teachers.
Especially the relationship and work with her horse Levante is incredible supportive to really embody the spiritual and bring it into matter. He is definitely one of the greatest blessings in her life, next to her dogs, cats and cows.
In 2017 she felt more and more called to the work with women. To support them in their very own way to liberation and the first Medicine Women´s Circle came to life.
Now techniques as shadow and body work, meditation, mantras and the ancient practise of the healing Yoni Egg are supporting her medicine work to really step into self-responsibility and transport and integrate the experienced.
Her actual projects are Medicina Feminina ceremonies and retreats, “La Medicina Feminina” a platform in order to share informations about the healing and wisdom of the feminine and connect women. With her spiritual partner Markus “Sanken Tsoma” she founded in 2015 the School of Mystery and is travelling with him and their teacher Inkanima every year throughout Europe holding ceremonies.
In 2019 they finally founded the association and non-profit-organization Visiones, which is the foundation of their work.
