Twin Shamans / East End of New York Sept 23-30, 2017
Please join us in welcoming my dear friends, beloved Peruvian Medicine Women Doña Ysabel and Doña Olinda known as "The Twins" to the East End of New York.
As Curanderas for over 30 years, The Twins will be offering three evenings of San Pedro Mesada Ceremonies and three days of Private Healing Sessions. They are traveling all the way from the North Coast of Peru to offer their beautiful feminine energy as they guide us in healing our energy bodies and reconnecting with Mother Earth.
The Twins attribute their gifts to the guiding spirit of San Pedro, who informs them as to what work needs to be done on each client to obtain wholeness. San Pedro is the traditional Saint that "chose” them as healers and is also represented by the plant San Pedro. Traditionally for thousands of years, the spirit of this plant is ingested to expand ones ability to heal others. The Twins, having worked with this spirit for so long, can access its guidance at any time without any herbal assistance. The Twins heal clients by several methods: hands on healing (as in private sessions), the use of herbs and teas, as well as the traditional core ceremony of the North Coast of Peru, known as the San Pedro Mesada Ceremony. This ceremony deepens the individual work the Twins do, and helps to rapidly clear the heavy energy in the client’s field. In this ceremony, the Twins guide the group to directly experience the spirit of San Pedro and in doing so release years of accumulated heavy energy.
SAN PEDRO MESADA CEREMONY
The San Pedro Mesada Ceremony is their signature healing ceremony which they use nightly back at their home in Chiclayo. This ceremony originated in North Coastal Peru and has been used for 1,000's of years, the first evidence of which comes from the great Moche culture, which is a civilization that pre-dates the Inkas. Doña Ysabel channels the Spirit of San Pedro and offers deep healing to the group. Doña Olinda works with sacred wooden swords removing unwanted energies, clearing the Light Body, cutting chords and awakening inner seeds of knowledge stored in the DNA. The ceremonies goal is the healing of the participants and assists in opening the heart, creating greater connection to Spirit, and removing accumulated heavy energy from one's field. The group participates in the drinking of a sacred homeopathic herbal tea made from the San Pedro plant. This is an active ceremony, where participants are directed to move and shake out limbs- to assist in the removal of the dense energies that have accumulated in the body. People of all ages have participated and adjustments can be made based on your mobility. This is a very safe experience and the tea does not induce any psychotropic effects. Evening ceremonies are open for 15 people.

Doña Ysabel Chinguel and Doña Olinda Pintado are famous Curanderas from the North Coast of Peru (Chiclayo), featured in Dr. Bonnie Glass-Coffin's acclaimed book, "The Gift of Life." They work with their mesa and plant medicine. Known as “The Twins”, they work in their community as respected healers. They use ancient traditional ways to treat people. The focus of their medicine is to put you at peace with the Spirits of the Universe. Ysabel, from Singo in the province of Huancabamba, and Olinda, from Huancabamba village are soul twins, also known as Yanatin-Masintin, a balanced complementary union of masculine and feminine energy. For 30 years, they have practiced northern ancestral medicine in the city of Chiclayo. Their wonderful working relationship has allowed them to heal many kinds of illnesses- from depression to terminal illnesses. Traveling to Huancabamba with their clients, Ysabel and Olinda always make use of the sacred waters of the magical Huaringas lakes. Ysabel Chinguel comes from las Huaringas and the sacred lakes nearby Piura, Peru. She is well known because of her “angel hands”. People from all over the world come and take baths at the lakes in Huaringas, where they are healed and blessed. When she was 30, she was elected by the divine San Pedro spirit to be a healer. Ever since this time, she works at Chiclayo, Peru, helping people with terminal and rare diseases, and other disorders. Olinda Pintado comes from Huancabamba, a village near las Huaringas Piura, Peru. Since she was a little girl, she was interested in the Mesadas (San Pedro Ceremonies) and began to learn the ways of this medicine. When her cousin was very sick, Ysabel was invited to do a mesada on his behalf. All were amazed by the results as a deep healing ensued. Olinda’s path was clear after this point; according to her tradition, she was elected by the Divine spirit of San Pedro to be a healer. She practices her medicine in Chiclayo, Peru, together with Isabel.
Maggie Harrsen has returned to the East End of New York after living in Peru for the past six months where she led healing retreats through the Sacred Valley with Nuna Wellness and spent time with the Twins at their home in Chiclayo, receiving sacred wisdom teachings and participating in San Pedro Mesada Ceremonies. Maggie was introduced to the Twins in 2013 by Kathryn Michaels of the Earthkeepers Foundation where she participated in one of their San Pedro Mesada Ceremonies in New York City. Nearly four years later and living in Peru, Maggie was called by the Spirit of San Pedro in her dreams to reconnect with these Medicine Women. She is deeply honored to support the Twins journey to her homeland where they can experience the beauty of the sea and support many individuals in her community into greater wellbeing.
