Lesley Myburgh, Medicine woman, (frequently referred to as “La Gringa”) is originally from South Africa and first came to Peru in 1991 during which time she started working with San Pedro. Lesley returned to Peru bringing groups for years to continue learning from this master plant. She relocated to Cusco in the late 90s and Lesley embarked on an apprenticeship under the guidance of a highly-respected teacher, which lasted for 2½ years. She subsequently continued her training from numerous internationally acclaimed spiritual leaders including Credo Mutwa (African spiritual leader), Don Ruben (Wachumero), Don Ignacio (Ayahuasqero) amongst many others.
