• Maestro Julio Cesar Urquia Rojas

    Ayahuascero, Sanangero

    Born and raised in the shipibo community of Pahoyan, Julio learned about the plants and the animals of the jungle from a young age. After his childhood and military service, he got involved with the medicine while going to school to be a schoolteacher. The career of a schoolteacher at one point was no longer compatible with being a maestro and henceforth has left this profession to become a healer. His teacher at one point robbed him of his power, and when awakened to this fact, he took it back, but found himself without a teacher. After a few years he met maestro Delphin, with whom he dieted primarily Chiric Sanango. Julio has extensive experience with many plants, but has specialized in Chiric Sanango, a master plant that is said to be the most powerful of plants and capable of healing every illness. Julio is a powerful healer, warmhearted, of upright character, incredibly hardworking and a great friend.
