Doña Olinda and Doña Ysabel, Topanga, CA, 2017

welcoming beloved Peruvian Shaman Doña Ysabel and Doña Olinda

november 6-12, 2018 / topanga, CA


Curanderas for over 36 years, Doña Ysabel and Doña Olinda, known as the Twins, will be visiting California to offer Private Healing Sessions, San Pedro Mesada Ceremony and a Workshop. 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 a traditional Saint that "chose” them as healers and is also represented by the cactus 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. Please Note the Twins speak Spanish and a translator will be present who speaks English.




In a 1-hour Private Healing Session with The Twins, Dona Ysabel and Olinda, you will receive a powerful combination of: a diagnostic reading, cleansing, healing and blessing. They are sought out in their hometown of Northern Peru to cure issues relating from terminal illness to poor health to unhealthy relationships. They are famous for healing the impossible and credited with miraculous healings. Both healers work on you during the session. If you have a special request of healing, please let the Twins know at the beginning of your session so that they may best support your healing process. Sessions are open for women, men and children. If you cannot travel to be with the Twins in-person but would like to experience a session, they are taking some remote healings during this trip.

The San Pedro Mesada Ceremony is the Twins signature healing ceremony. The 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, 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 energy body, cutting chords and awakening inner seeds of knowledge stored in the DNA. The ceremony's goal is for the healing of the participants and assists in opening the heart, creating greater connection with Spirit and removing accumulated heavy energy from one's field. The group participates in the drinking of a sacred homeopathic, herbal tea which the Twins make 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, gentle way to experience San Pedro and the tea does not induce psychotropic effects. This ceremony is for women who are experiencing or have experienced: sexual abuse, miscarriage, abortion, trauma during child-birth, postpartum depression, infertility, irregular menstrual cycle and physical illnesses/diseases of the female body such as ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammation, breast + ovarian cancer, HPV, fibroids and endometriosis. Space is limited.

*For those of you who have previously experienced the medicine of San Pedro (perhaps a longer ceremony duration or in a different cultural setting) please know all aspects of this ceremony are unique to the Twins, even including how they prepare the medicine and its dosage. The ceremony follows the traditional Mesada ceremony originating on the North Coast of Peru.

Doña Ysabel Chinguel and Doña Olinda Pintado are famous Curanderas, Medicine Women, from Chiclayo, a small village on the North Coast of Peru. They have been featured in Dr. Bonnie Glass-Coffin's acclaimed book, "The Gift of Life." Known as The Twins, they work in their community as respected healers using their mesa and plant medicine. They use ancient and traditional methods 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 35 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 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 Ysabel.

Maggie Harrsen has returned to the States after living in Peru for the past year, where she led healing retreats in the Sacred Valley and spent time with the Twins at their home in Chiclayo, receiving 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 five 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 honored to support the Twins journey to her homeland where they can experience the diversity of our Western culture and support individuals in her community to re-connect with their Spirit.
