He accompanies the practice on the path of healing and the expansion of consciousness through the word, song, dance, static, and dynamic postures and breath work. He defines himself as a "medicine man-woman, reconciled in the protection force of the masculine and patronizing female, the spiritual being in relation to the unit and be embodied in the duality of the concrete reality.

Create everyday beauty, live the beauty of each instant of the present, to celebrate life, is that Emilio is devoted to sharing with his students-explorers with great generosity.

Through all his teachings, Emilio, as a therapist, knows how to listen to everyone to accompany him on the experience that crosses with be.

    "The 12 day Yoga and Master Plants retreat I did at Huamanwasi in December 2015 was absolutely life changing, and I dont say that lightly!! Romulo and Emilio are both amazing souls and gifted shamans, who shepherded our group through a well thought-out, organized and integrated program of transformational experiences with grace, wisdom and heart. They offered each person thoroughly personalized attention to guide their individual journey, and the insights they provided to me were spot on- their intuition and skill with Master Plants helped me reach levels and make connections between things that I never would have been able to arrive at on my own. And the yoga sessions, combining yin yoga postures with Kundalini yoga mantras and shamanistic singing and dancing, were just fantastic, complementing the work with Master Plants perfectly. This unique program of yoga and music Romulo and Emilio devised, provided me much inspiration and new angles for my own spiritual practice.In addition, the location and the facilities of Huamanwasi itself are just wonderful, the jungle is like a garden around the main house and the variety of meeting places and ceremony spaces around the site are just beautiful. The rooms and communal areas are so lovely and peaceful; every detail, from the artwork in the bedrooms, to the paintings and colors of the walls and the beautiful hammocks hanging everywhere, is considered, and each of the ceremony spaces within the forest have a lovely infrastructure and individual feel. And the rest of the staff are just fantastic too- so friendly and warm, and they do such a wonderful job supporting us during our process- maintaining the environs and feeding us amazing vegetarian food!! I cant recommend Huamanwasi highly enough, and would love to return for another retreat! Suitable for Spanish, French and English speakers, although some knowledge of Spanish would be recommended, in order to communicate with all the staff there. 10 out of 10." website, edited
