“Shamanic truths are that everything is alive, has consciousness and spirit, and can interact with every other animate being. Everything is connected and we are all One. Our well-being depends on our spiritual harmony with all forms of life seen and unseen. Through the shamanic arts we can develop more reverent and reciprocal relationships with the forces and beings of the Spirit Realm. Then we come into right relationship with our animate Universe which creates balance and harmony within us, among us and in all worlds.

Shamanic wisdom teachings help us to grow, transform and deepen our connection to all of Creation. With shamanic initiations we can reconnect to the sacred within and around us as we expand our consciousness and experience dimensions of reality beyond what we can ordinarily perceive. We can all learn the shamanic arts to assist us in restoring health, harmony and well-being to ourselves, our families, our communities, and Mother Earth and her children, the plants, animals, minerals and our fellow humans. Then magic and miracles can happen.”

Cynthia Greer has been a shamanic teacher, healer and ceremonialist for many years. Since 1998 she has apprenticed deeply in the shamanic arts with don Oscar Miro-Quesada, the Unseen World and the Pachakuti Mesa, a sacred altar for self-exploration, empowerment and transformation. Cynthia has also worked with many other revered shamans and indigenous healers from South, Central and North America where she has traveled extensively.

As a Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) Apprenticeship Program, a contributor to its creation, and a member of the PMT Teacher Mentorship Council, Cynthia is committed to sharing shamanic wisdom, initiations and healing practices. This helps people transform and deepen their relationships with Mother Earth, Nature, the Unseen World, the Elements, the Cosmos and All That Is. With over 25 years of experience teaching adults, she knows the best teaching is from the heart and the best learning happens when it’s fun. Having experienced firsthand that everything is alive and that we are all One, Cynthia brings a sense of wonder, deep gratitude and love for all beings. Her passions include bringing Spirit into form, helping people transform and loving service to Mother Earth and her children.

Cynthia lives near Asheville, North Carolina, among the oldest mountains in the world, where she offers shamanic training, private healing sessions and Earth-honoring ceremony. Her teachings include introductory, intermediate and advanced shamanism and mesa work, and the Heart of the Healer community’s apprenticeship program, The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal. This 5-part series offers a deep experience of the Peruvian shamanic tradition. Cynthia also teaches advanced PMT workshops, Despacho-Making, Creating Sacred Space, Working with Your Power Animals, The Shamanic Journey, Past Life Regression and Reiki.

The group who gathered for the weekend formed a close bond in our sacred circle which I cherish and deeply respect and honor. I don’t exaggerate when I say that my life has changed profoundly because of all that occurred during the weekend. I am truly grateful to each and every beautiful soul who shared in the experience. What an extraordinary journey we are on.”

“Cynthia is so amazing, gifted and dedicated to her work. She is filled with so much love and positive energy, it is an honor and pleasure to learn from her and work with her. I am so blessed to have crossed paths with her beautiful spirit… Becoming a Pachakuti Mesa carrier has been a life-changing experience. I have learned how to honor all things and have re-membered the sacredness of all life. Cynthia is an amazing curandera and teacher. Thank you!”

Courtney H. Smith

Health Educator, Asheville, NC

“This was a profound experience of initiation, a call to heal and to awaken our hearts and awareness to the unseen world. I am relatively new to shamanism work. This experience  intensified my desire to learn – that is to transform experientially. I leave with an intention to practice daily, a gratitude practice for the earth, beginning with the tree I see out my bedroom window. Cynthia is a living example of the work. I leave feeling so blessed, so fortunate, so grateful. Thank you. I want to do the program… and I leave confirmed that this is a direction I want to follow – for healing myself and for healing the earth. Positive energy, attention to the good, the hopeful, faith – these things characterized the work. It awakened my highest hopes.”
