This slender book hit me with an indescribable impact. It seemed so simple, a chronicle of a tale and not too much more. Yet I was compelled to reread, and as I did it began to unfold it’s wisdom within me. I’m currently on my forth re-read, and continue to be stunned by it’s profound wisdom. There are no other books I’ve read four times within six months, ever. Buy now or add your review

Shamanism is the art of seeking and maintaining balance between humans and nature, between the seen and unseen realms. At the heart of shamanism is balance; without balance healing cannot occur. A shamanic practitioner is one who reaches altered states of consciousness by using sound, music, drumming, guided meditations, plant-spirit medicine and/or other techniques, to interact with the spirit world. The shaman or curandero/curandera then channels their connection to the spirit world into this world during a ceremony or ritual to heal, perform divination, and balance energies for personal healing and global transformation.
“Pachakuti” means “world reversal” and refers to the time
of transformation we are living now. A mesa is an altar for
self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in
which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. This tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.
