José and his wife Lena completed a ten year apprenticeship with a Huichol Maracame (shaman) in the Sierras of Central Mexico and in addition they currently study intensively with Shipibo healers in the Peruvian Amazon and Incan shamans in the Andes. Jose often speaks on the subject of the indigenous wisdom of shamans and how this knowledge applies to the modern day world.
