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 Noiarao (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 never charged anything for his service and 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) was born 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) 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.
Together with his partner Metsa Yaka, he organizes since 2014 retreats in various European countries.
During this time Sanken Tsoma was taught in shamanic diets by the teacher plants from the Amazon and Europe and 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 / Inka healer Don Eduardo Chura Apaza (from the Peruvian Andes).
After having the honor to receive the former medicine name of his teacher Inkanima, in 2017 Sanken Tsoma got permission from him and also from Don Eduardo to share his work with the world.
He is supported from the spiritual world by the grandfather Inkanima the Great and the grandmother Metsa Wesna the Great, which guid, support and protect him.
Since the end of 2017 he lives in Andalusia/Spain, where he deepens his work with the plants.
Metsa Yaka (Désirée, born 1985 in Germany), started her way in the Shipibo-Conibo tradition 2013.
Since her earliest childhood, she was always connected and guided by the plants and animals.
She went herself through an intense healing process, out of depressions and anxieties with the help of the plants and animals.
In 2016 she were introduced by her teacher Maestro Inkanima to his lineage and hat the honour to received the medicine name of his mother. After Inkanima initiated her in 2017 to do this work by her own, Metsa Yaka stepped fully into her path to serve and to hold ceremonies under the guidance, support and protection of the Abuelos Inkanima the Great and his wife Metsa Wesna the Great who are still watching and acting from the spiritual world.
Metsa Yaka dieted a variety of master plants from the Amazon and Europe.
Following the call to bring these ancient wisdom of the plants there where it´s needed, her medicine work came to life.
Since the end of 2017, she lives in Andalusia/Spain, where she can realize a long-cherished wish to combine the work with the plants and the animals and to continue to learn in this way.
