I will cut to the chase - I'm deeply involved in spirituality, I was wandering around the beautiful San Blas square, saw the "magic" sign, got curious, knocked, this Jesus man opened the door with the same speech of "not opening to anyone" and from this moment on, I got the very exact same diagnosis as described in http://jvrichardsonjr.net/cultural/shaman.htm, with the very same tricks (it is as if I was writing that piece in the link, identical), and the 700 soles necklace. He was also smearing my spiritual teacher without knowing him or anything about him and then smearing all other shamans and curanderos in peru.
I'm well experienced with such spiritual con men (that's what a long time in India yields among other things) and I know how to notice the signs and the motives but I must say that this one is really a talented scam artist. I then got back to my hotel and googled him and was not surprised to read these accounts here.
Pitty that there are such people who exploit the naivity of others. I give you my word: he is a con man, don't buy his diagnosis and above all, don't buy his overpriced necklaces, they will not provide anything except of more indecent money to his pockets.
