Derek Januszewski

Founding Pastor

Read More About Derek

Derek is a 45 year old father of 3 children – Dylan, Althea, and Zoe. He grew up bouncing back and forth between Massachusetts and Florida. A survivor of tremendous abuse in many forms, Derek came to the medicine in 2017 after a decade long battle with addiction that was starting to get away from him.

Through intense inner work, extensive work with the medicine, and countless hours working in service to the medicine working along with nearly 1,000 brave souls who sat with the medicine over the last couple of years, Derek has healed much of his trauma. The spiritual healing he recieved through the medicine inspired him to found Pachamama Sanctuary to help others find their own path to health and happiness.

Derek is passionate about being in service to others. Always ready to lend a hand in any capacity, what he loves most is providing assistance and guidance to anyone who is struggling and is ready to take on the work to find personal acceptance and growth. He spends much of his time helping people integrate their process and is readily available to help those in need however possible. ॐ
