Core Practices

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition is a system that utilizes an altar like arrangement called a mesa at its core yet emphasizes the flexibility, the cultural context, and the creative potential of each apprentice in a way that transforms not only their lives, but also the planet.

Ritual Arts

Through the study and practice of shamanic ritual arts, individuals learn to live in harmony with nature and Mother Earth and her children, the animal, plants, minerals and each other.


Our community members, practitioners of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition Shamanic Arts, gather for seasonal Earth honoring ceremonies and Full/New Moon Ceremonies as well as pilgrimages to sacred sites.
