Meet our Healers

Ana Luisa García Quiñones

Guest Ayahuasca &. Kambo Facilitator

Ana is from Mazatlan, Sinaloa Mexico. She has extensive knowledge learned from many Amazonian healers in Peru and Colombia. Ana has mastered the art of plant medicines, and very challenging dietas to earn her corona (medicine hat).

She has been working with master plants and have been holding ceremonies and healing for many years. She is kind, generous, and extremely wise and believes that openness and unconditional regard are vital components for creating and preserving sacred space. Compassion and altruism give her a benevolent and sincere demeanor as she joyfully works to bring healing to all the encounters.

Ana wholeheartedly welcomes all individuals who are suffering to participate in the ceremony, so that they can experience the amazing benefits of the sacred medicines and the ancient healing traditions of Nana Ayahuasca.

Dr. Hurtado-Palomo is a Psychologist and Life Coach.  He sees people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, marital conflict, and family discord.  Dr. Hurtado-Palomo also treats youth who are struggling with emotional and family issues and clients who are dealing with chronic illness, assisting them with the emotional challenges that accompany the disease.  His approach in working with clients includes elements of Cognitive Behavioral, Psychodynamic, and Family Systems therapies.  The foundation of his approach to therapy comes from his years of study at Sofia/Divine Wisdom School of Theology and the teachings of the Orthodox Catholic Church.


Dr. Hurtado-Palomo received three graduate degrees from the Sofia School of Theology: a Masters in Divinity,  Licentiate of Sacred Theology (STL)and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology.  He has received a dual BA in Psychology and Human Services from Ottawa University. Dr. Hurtado-Palomo received intensive training in Life Coaching from The Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in 2016.  His most recent experiences include working for over 10 years as a corporate Coach in Human Resources Development.


He has treated anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, sexuality, marriage/ relationship issues, stress, addictions, self-esteem, career issues, and a desire to increase your sense of happiness, well-being, and personal growth.


He is proud of his dual culture, Celtic-Rarámuri.  Dr. Hurtado-Palomo has learned from his mother, grandmother, and aintíní on his Celtic side, learning Celtic mysticism's magick.  From his Raramuri side, he trained with his Nana (great-grandmother) and other community elders over many years and is now a very experienced owirúame ("the one that heals") with leading many ceremonies. You will be in good hands with him as you go through your journey. 


Traveling extensively, Dr. Hurtado-Palomo has given loads of spiritual meditation retreats, even free retreats to those who don't have any money. He cares a lot about people on a spiritual path and helps them heal from the past and embrace a beautiful life. 


He has also facilitated many sacred plant medicine ceremonies and has decades of experience with sacred plant ceremonies and medicine retreats. He founded Ekklesia Iwiga Center for Spiritual Renewal for offering Teonamácatl and Jíkuri ceremonies. He runs ceremonies himself and works with other masters, owirúame, and shamans. He splits his time between the Iwigá Center for Spiritual Renewal in Mexico; the rest of his time he is in the United States providing workshops and Spiritual Counseling at the Iwigá Center for Spiritual Renewal in Silicon Valley.

Dr. Hurtado-Palomo has earned the owirúame title through hard work and training, putting in many long years of work into earning the title. He has made life changes, did his spiritual growth, and learned life's lessons in a tangible way. He has worked in Native American and Celtic shamanism for the majority of his life. 


He brings a special otherworldly touch to sacred plant ceremonies through his vast knowledge and experience with spiritual paths, not just shamanism.


Dr. Hurtado-Palomo has studied spiritual texts galore and walked many spiritual paths; this includes being a semi-retired Orthodox Catholic priest, finding the familiar among them. He brings a magical touch to all the ceremonies he runs, with the ancient traditions solidly on one side and modern esoteric (inner) spirituality on the other. 


A wise spiritual counselor, compassionate healer, Dr. Hurtado-Palomo, brings beauty to medicine ceremonies. Everyone who sits in his traditions loves him and his way of conducting them. 

He knows how to help every person somehow. He has unique skills for seeing what people need, their pasts, and even their past lives. Dr. Hurtado-Palomo can see their auras and determine where the blockages are. He also has an uncanny way of going straight to the core of what needs to be healed. He beautifully touches everyone's heart. A divine golden light flows from him into the world. 


Dr. Hurtado-Palomo doesn't keep much money for himself. His prime directive is to help anyone who wants to heal and awaken in whatever way they need at any given moment. That is what is most important to him. This is not an era for making tons of money, he says. This is the Great Awakening of Humanity, and he does his part to make it possible for every individual to ride this wave.
