“A mystic is one who has dropped all dreams, who has thrown away this mirror of the mind and looks directly into life (...) Then in a single moment he sees all eternity, and in a single atom he can see the whole reflected."

Originally coming from Italy, I now live in the enchanting Sacred Valley of Peru. Before moving to Pisac, I lived and worked in various other locations in the world, including Colombia, Tanzania, Kenya and Nepal. I was involved in a number of humanitarian projects, specializing in child protection and emergency recovery.  My travels took me to India in 2015 to study Eastern philosophy and practice meditation. After my time in India, I travelled to Nepal to work on relief efforts after the earthquake. During this time in Nepal, I also continued to study to deepen my spiritual practice and understanding.

One thing became increasingly apparent to me during my travels: it was no longer an option to separate humanitarian work and spirituality. It was imperative for these two paths to converge at some point so that I could completely embody all that I had learned on my journey. The search for more compassionate work in my life journey began the next chapter in my life. I first embarked on the Camino De Santiago, I then travelled to South America, finally landing in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Here, I came into contact with the Master Plants of Ayahuasca and San Pedro for the first time.

In these sacred ceremonies, I encountered the deepest healing I had ever received. These Plants had profoundly impacted me, shaking off pre-existing notions about the world and making space for new understanding and insight. I truly believe that these plants have the power to fast-track the awakening process, heal traumas and help overcome fears. Working with Ayahuasca and San Pedro showed me that the two plants complement each other very well. While Ayahuasca draws one closer to oneself, San Pedro connects a person to their own heart, making for a complete and well rounded inner journey.

This experience changed my life so deeply, I chose to abandon my previous path and continue my journey in the Peruvian Andes, where I feel the way of life is simple, yet complete. I have since worked with groups here in the Sacred Valley and in the Amazon jungle. 

I am eternally grateful to the sacred Master plants and to the nature that I bathe in everyday here in the Sacred Valley.

I wish only to share with others this gift, the search for knowledge, truth and love.
