The Herlinda Shaman

Herlinda Augustin is one of the few women shamans among the Shipibo, one of the peoples of Peruvian Amazonia. During the rituals in the heart of the Amazonian forest, Herlinda sings to make contact with the spirits of nature and heal her patients. Her songs speak of the power of plants and the importance of harmony between Man and Nature. From each song, Herlinda creates a unique drawing, a true work of art, that decorates the inside of Aïny's packaging.
