In the Andean Tradition, the Ñustas (pronounced newstahs) are some of the most refined femenine energies of the Kawsay Pacha, the living cosmos. Ñustas spirits can be found all around Pachamama and are represented by mountains, lakes, rivers, springs and caves. They are celebrated and honored for their blessings and for bringing fertility, growth, warmth and spiritual protection to the communities of the mountains.

In the program Ñustayoq we will get to know and work with this sacred energy, introducing ourselves and deepening our connection to the 13 main Ñustas of Cusco according to the lineage of Vilma Pinedo, andean healer and granddaughter to Don Benito Qorihuaman Vargas and Melchor Deza Sanchez.


A good relation to the Ñustas can help us heal, nurture our homes and families, bring abundance of positive things, harmony between our female and male energies and blessings in our spiritual path.

We will learn the traditional way to perform the rituals and offerings for the 13 Ñustas of Cusco, 

also allowing these female guardians to become a bridge between us and our own personal Ñustas, the ones from our birthplace and the place we live in.

Vilma Pinedo

Vilma Pinedo was born surrounded by the Apus, powerful mountain spirits from Cusco, Peru. Her initiation into the path of the healer arrived before she was even born. When her mother was pregnant with her, she was struck by a lighting that almost kills them both. In the Andes this is a strong sign of being called by the spirits, that’s why from a young age the eyes of the community were set on her to learn the “curandera” way.

Vilma grew among her grandfathers and grandmothers, whom through day to day labour and sharing, taught her the traditional healing rituals. And since she was 12, she help them, reading the energy in the coca leaves, gathering the natural elements for the healings and offerings and using her intuition to advice the patients.


She comes from a lineage of renown healers in Cusco, amongst them her father Martin Pinedo, her mother María Sanchez, her grandfather Benito Qorihuaman and her great-grandfather Melchor Deza. The latter two, made known to foreigners by the masters Don Juan Nuñez del Prado and Américo Yabar, and respected  by a world-wide community of practitioners of the Andean Spiritual Tradition.


By studying at the university, Vilma did something that was new to past generations, allowing her to learn different languages, accessing and understanding more of the western and modern mindset.


Currently, she dedicates her time to her family, to helping her community, and assisting people in their spiritual paths, their own relations, families and businesses. She works with different subtle natural energies, using the methods received from her ancestors, like the making of offerings, the use of healing plants and sacred Andean rituals. She always remarks that when she works with people it’s the their faith what gets the job done. And that each one of us knows what we truly need, it’s just up to us to open up, listen, talk, and walk the path.


Vilma has a special connection with the Apus, guardian spirits of her land and culture. Like the Apu pachatusan, Manuel Pinta or Wiraqochan. They guide her in her works, and this is why she is considered as channel to the elders who still inhabit the high mountains in Cusco. “Sometimes you don’t see them, but they see you for sure, and they take care of you”, she says.

Vilma loves her family and the healing ways that bring balance to our bodies and our relationship with the living earth. She was called to accompany the Dalai Lama when he visited Cusco, and she uses her gift as a tool for health, peace and unity.

16 sessions, +44 hours of teachings and

"Working with the Ñustas we learn to let go of our pain little by little, being gentle; if we pour our emotions suddenly, like all of the water out of a bottle, we could hurt ourselves even more in the process. If we have accumulated hucha, negativity,  through a long time, we must learn to release it gradually and patiently"

These Ñustas are connected to the elements of the surface of the earth, the plants, the rivers, the life here and now, and the quality of the light that holds a gift or purity and hope for us.

We will work with the ñustas:

What participants of online programs with Vilma had to say

translated from spanish

“Vilma knew how to read our words, faces and personal energy bubbles through this journey of healing our energy eyes. I’m grateful for her listening carefully to what we had to say, and her deep reflecting on each of the individual processes shared online. 

She knows the messages that travel in between worlds, reading the signs embedded in our dreams and the synchronicities the universe presents us with. She is a bridge between her holy land of Cusco and the holy lands of each of the participants summoned to this path. As she says: ‘Be humble, you are made of earth and stardust’.”

Francisca C. /Spain

My experience with Vilma has been a profound one. While I have been studying the Andean path for a number of years with Juan and Ivan, this experience has taken me much deeper and opened new spaces for me. A deeper embodied awareness of the Andean medicine and pachamama that will help me in my endeavors. As I am a shamanic healer and work with the Andean medicine, Vilmas perspective is very valuable because she has a direct connection to the Huascar lineage and works with these energies as a healer. I know without a doubt that she is a clear channel to this lineage and transmits a deep awareness of it.

Anthony P./ U.S.A.

“I  feel so moved when I find masters this pure. The wisdom expressed shakes the heart and soul, and everything we have experienced was knowledge given generously, I’ll hold dear down my path. Thank you Vilma, Francisco and Yandy.”

Karina G. / Argentina

Vilma brings a subtle yet intense energy into her works. You can tell she is constantly connected to the group process. Personally, this experience has helped me to find puzzle pieces of my life, to open up beatiful praying sacred spaces and to understand how the energies move through your body. I feel that what I discovered here will talk to me through time and space.”

                                                 Silvia M. / Sacred Valley in Cusco.

“Vilma’s teachings are so subtle and healing, I’m so grateful. I liked the space in between meetings that allowed me to digest and apply what I had learned.”

Martha A. /France
