And Over 400 Publications
EVERY HEALER NEEDS A MENTOR
My name is Dr. Óscar C. Pérez, The Recovery Shaman.
For the past 20+ years, I have been helping people heal personal and generational trauma – the kind of trauma that leads to isolation, depression, anxiety, addiction, and suicide.
I started this work because I needed to; if I hadn't, I would be dead.
My passion for connecting with the indigenous (Ndeé and Nahua) cultures of my ancestors led me to study indigenous and shamanic healing traditions in the United States, México, Brazil, Northern Europe, Indonesia, and Spain. I started my study 30+ years ago, began applying them to my own life 20+ years ago, and have now been guiding others through the journey of healing the roots of trauma and addiction for over 15 years.
Along the way, I have helped countless people overcome addictions, restore their families, and transform their lives. I have a PhD from Brown University, but my real education has been with the healers that mentored, guided, and continue guiding me in this mission to heal the wounds that devour the world, one person at a time.

EVERY HEALER NEEDS A COMMUNITY
The society we live in has taught us that we are expected to suffer our burdens alone; that if we cannot "get over it," or "pull ourselves up by our bootstraps," that something is inherently wrong with us. This is a dis-eased way of living. This feeling of being alone is at the heart of the afflictions that destroy the world, one person at a time. It is responsible for the rapidly rising rates of depression, violence, addiction, and suicide. We are social beings that need a healthy, supportive community to grow, heal, and thrive.
