How a Model Turned Shamanic Practitioner, Jessica Lewis Aims To Preserve Shipibo Traditions

Jessica Lewis, owner of The Shipibo Market in the UK is on a mission to enable the modern world to understand and reap the benefits of shamanic traditions and shipibo culture – just like she did. Her pursuit for self-healing from emotional and physical trauma and discovering her true inner calling after a number of successful careers led her to learn about the Shamanic practices of Shipibo tribes. Working as a successful model in her 20s and later joining boxing to raise funds helped her explore a lot of career roles. She knew she loved challenges and she always aspired to help people in some way or the other. After being diagnosed with arthritis, she healed herself naturally and also embarked on a new spiritual journey; shamanism. Using plant medicines and medicine music in the encounter led her to building her own shamanic shop and build a career she has complete faith in.

The Shipibo Market provides an ethical platform to tribal men and women of Shipibo to showcase and sell their traditional items like jewelry, clothing, plant medications, essences, textiles etc. the idea is to connect Shipibo and other indigenous South American tribes with the modern day communities. The shamanic handmade crafts have a reasonable market in the UK, which is growing rapidly with fair trade markets like The Shipibo Market. In the early phases of the journey she began working with just a single Shipibo family. Within a short period of time, her business has expanded and today she is working with numerous Shipibo families, craftsmen and also Shipibo organizations in Peru. 

Jessica lists strengthening the communities as her top priority. Providing them with regular work and supporting their empowerment is her mission. Her faith in Shipibo tradition and shamanic healing powers has further strengthened her goal to do whatever it takes to preserve the traditions of this community. Being a Shamanic Healer herself, she understands the traditions and has learned how to use shamanic tools. 

Her shamanic shop specialises in Ayahuasca ceremony essentials, which involves drinking Ayahuasca under the guidance of a Shaman. The use of this psychotropic plant for healing purposes helps people to connect to themselves and nature. They come out of the journey feeling more aware of their purpose. Ayahuasca, clothes for the ceremony, rattles, wands and incense are all available at The Shipibo Market. Apart from shamanic tools, she also showcases a collection of Shipibo art and crafts.
