About Us

Jhon & Janneke

Jhon and Janneke are a husband and wife team, dedicating their lives to creating a sustainable and socially aware project at Wilkamayu Spirit. Their desire is to share their love for each other through the creation of a project that can help people to heal and help local communities to benefit at the same time. As well as feed back into the local nature in a sustainable way.

The idea of community is one that we continue to aim towards. We arrange social meetings with our guides and shamans on a regular basis and we look to incorporate the services of those around us where we can feel their dedication and motivation is aligned with our own principles.

They met while working at a healing centre in Peru. The connection was immediate, and it was clear that their respective energies would merge to create something beautiful in both love and work. Their mission is to walk together on this path and grow as a couple, as individuals and ultimately as a community.

Jhon and Janneke share a love for nature, Mother Earth, Pachamama, the Mountains and the Andean traditions. They have a passion for working and sharing in the community, and are dedicated to personal development, creating a unique, intimate environment in their family home to facilitate work with the Master plants.

Willkamayu Jhon Circle

Jhon

Jhon comes from a lineage of Andean heritage, in the community of San Pedro de Kacha. The mountainous regions around Cusco and the Sacred Valley are his homelands and his connection to its geography and community is strong within his heart. This interwoven community raised the ancestral traditions that resonated with Jhon since his childhood, and became more profound when he identified parallels within the taoist traditions which evolved his understanding of the natural systems that connect us above, below and throughout the universe. With these principles, Jhon experienced a rebirth of interconnected realisation and continues to encourage the roots of ancestral wisdom to ground him in the beautiful web of life.

A calling to ayahuasca and the first connection into process confirmed his inner narrative. And through deep conversation with Mother Ayahuasca he has outwardly portrayed the need to share his confirmed wisdoms, and help others to share the beautiful connections that bind us to spirit. Jhon began learning about ceremony preparation and integration during service at an Integrative Medical Healing Clinic and he fostered the intention to support others through these profound experiences. Combining the traditional values of his childhood, respect of the Andean and Amazon lores and his continued commitment to learn and evolve, Jhon receives and readies guests into their transformative process with the master plants and is honoured to support his brothers and sisters into the beautiful realms that await those who receive the calling.

Janneke Sumaq sonqo anka

Janneke grew up within the humanistic values of the Netherlands, surrounded by nature which often provided her much peace and nurture. She later pursued a vocation in supporting others through social work. This work brought her into contact with social challenges and she became a support for the homeless, addicts and sex workers; a privilege which she used to connect with and understand the deeper facets of human nature and the challenges that can be expressed. Being highly sensitive and intuitive, with emotionally demanding work, Janneke learned through very personal and often difficult experiences the necessity to build protective boundaries and to retain a personal energy space.

Through introspective process Janneke found herself in Peru, embraced in the loving arms of Mother Ayahuasca and directed deeper into her self-understanding and personal development, the potential of master plants and the importance of connecting to nature, its spirits and traditional wisdoms.

It was this intuitive connection and the calling of Mother Ayahuasca that guided Janneke back to Peru and a closer encounter with the healing of Ayahuasca in an established retreat centre where she learnt again to manage human vulnerability and how maintain stability alongside the sensitivity required for intuitive growth. Healing and spiritual strength became the cornerstones for commitment in helping others and Willkamayu owes its core values to the courage and determination that continues to evolve daily in the project space that Janneke brings intuitively into existence.

Community, graceful acceptance and authenticity are important factors that make the project possible and Janneke is forever grateful to the people and spirits who have supported and guided her along this beautiful path.

Paola Pancorbo

I trained as a General Practitioner (Western Doctor), graduating from the University in 2012 and later trained in several areas of Alternative Medicine to achieve a supportive community practice in Urubamba, Cusco.

During 2016 I had the opportunity to get closer to understanding the entheogenic process of people with Master Plants such as Ayahuasca and Wachuma, Tobacco, Coca, etc. from which I took an incredible universal respect and admiration. I have experience in screening participants and providing guidelines to support their connection to such medicines.

Currently I dedicate myself to accompany each individual’s potential to heal with respect to the natural process. I have the joy of providing Workshops of Inner Child Therapy, Reiki, Biomagnetism and other treatments through intimate connection with Nature and Medicinal Plants. Human beings are ecologically entwined in this great family of Pachamama and the Universe, each has within itself light to ignite and change what they choose, with humility and with honesty, I dare to say that the fuel, the key, the answer is in finding Love on a deeply personal level.

Willkamayu Spirit Amy

Amy

A sensitive and highly perceptive personal approach led from academic interest in analytical psychology to more expressive and intimate hands-on work with nurturing human emotion and spirit. This approach demanded a deep heart-opening subjective investigation and ensuing journey of shared self discovery with yoga and meditation, from which a natural desire to assist those on the same path arose. The management of personal time and energy, open and honest communication and an anthropological interest in the surrounding world has given an empowerment of understanding the human predicament on one’s own terms and allows time to bring these ideas to others.

Specialising in Inner Child therapy, energy & bodywork, incorporating yoga, tai chi, breathwork and meditation. Amy encapsulates the need for expressive intuition and provides gentle guidance for people to return to their authentic energy space and connect to their natural rhythm. Preferring a one-to-one approach in order to achieve a highly inter-personal routine, she is also able to give small group sessions where she works patiently and sensitively to ensure all participants are individually considered.

For Willkumayu Spirit, Amy has developed a complementary pre-ceremony session, in order to ready participants for improved composure and receptivity with their process working with the Master Plants. Please mention this during your application if you have an interest.

Willkamayu Spirit Wayne

Wayne

From an enquiring childhood, Wayne connected to the stars and began studying the people’s of our planet, astrophysics and objective meditation. At 19 years of age he visited the Tibetan refugee camps of Northern Nepal to train in Buddhism and was captivated by an authentic lifestyle.

Living and working all over the globe his interests became about the similarities between cultures as opposed to the novel differences that separate us socially. Taking time to reinvent a serving lifestyle he naturally became to serve in supporting others who had asked such questions and became interested in ethnographic connections to nature and the phenomenal interactions that can be enhanced with the master plant cultures in the shamanic tribes of South America.

His commitment to Willkamayu is buried deeply in the authentic and respectful practices and offers spiritual guidance into the realms of experience that draw people to our community. Integration and lifestyle considerations are a key part of our practice. In these elements he is able to give direction and support. Wayne also provides translation between English and Spanish, to allow our guests to full communicate with our maestros.

Willkamayu Spirit Pumahuanca

Pumahuanca (Puma)

Jhon and Janneke met Pumahuanca in the beginning when they first moved to Yanahuara. As they set off on a beautiful hike to Apu Pumahuanca, they were met by a friendly canine guide. The stray dog who stayed by their sides for the entire trek and dutifully followed them home to become part of the Willkamayu family. A very intuitive and sensitive dog, he provides as a loyal protector and a loving spiritual guide.

Willkamayu Spirit Uku

Ukumayu (Uku)

Janneke and Pumahuanca met Ukumayu by the river when he was just a puppy. Enthusiastic and playfully they connected emotionally and from that day he has been an integral part of the Willkamayu family. Uku is very innocent, young at heart and lively dog, learning to develop into his wolf-like appearance. Like Puma, Uku is also our protector and spiritual guide.

Both of our dogs love attention and cuddles….

Willkamayu Spirit Merlin

Merlin

Our grey wizard is a super new addition to our loving family, Merlin brings graceful feline energies and wards off negative energies (mice), bringing love to passing souls and protecting our sacred space. Merlin looks forward to sharing his spells (purrs) with those who feel the calling to connect.

Willkamayu Spirit Cusi Cushi

Cusi Cushi

Cusi is Merlin’s little brother, a wistful soul who blissfully accepts the comings and goings of people and animals.
