Chio’s passion for healing started in 1992 when she became a Physical Therapist specializing in neurological and vestibular rehabilitation. Her devotion to healing guided her to look into other modalities, eventually leading her to European Shamanism in 2014, opening her up to Spirit in a profound way. In 2019, Chio was introduced to the significance of rituals and ceremonies through the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, a gateway to a heart centered connection with the Lineages of South America. She is immensely honored to be of service to Pachamama and to all life on Pachamama. She embodies compassion and guides students through this multi-layered tradition while providing a supportive space for personal healing and transformation.

The apprenticeship gave me the communtiy I’ve been seeking. Sharing, learning and growing with a group of fellow seekers who are on the path of the healer was extremely powerful, especially in the context of an intact lineage. ~Delia Echagaray, Sacramento, CA

Part 1: The Call to Heal: Releasing the Past
October 9 – 11, 2024
This apprenticeship workshop initiates participants into the Pachakuti Mesa, a powerful and sacred altar.  Students learn how to create their own mesas and work with them for self-empowerment, transformation, and helping others. Through shamanic journey and visionary states of consciousness, participants will explore the three worlds of the Andean cosmovision, sacred reciprocity with all that is, the core ingredients of ceremonial mastery, sacred sound and ritual language, healing, and curanderismo, and the inner world of the ukhupacha.

Part 2: A Balance of Power: Transforming the Present
October 11 – 13, 2024

During this workshop intensive, participants will apprentice in the center direction of the mesa, traditional Peruvian healing practices, and the kaypacha, the middle world. They will explore the kaypacha’s elemental matrix and magico-spiritual power, and learn about the moon’s presence in the middle world, mapping the cosmos on Earth, and celestial death and rebirth.

Part 3: The Condor’s Quest: Creating the Future
March 26 – 28, 2024
This workshop is an initiation into the paqokuna, the Andean Shaman/Priesthood mystical path, the lineage of the sacred mountains, and the five virtues of the mesa. Participants will also journey to and experience the hanaqpacha, the upper world beyond the physical, work with the unseen world there and deepen their connection to their own spiritual resources.

Part 4: The Hummingbird’s Ascent: Living the Mystery
March 28 – 30, 2025  
In this apprenticeship workshop, students will experience the upper world and learn about its lightning bolt of mystical illumination and the flow of kamasqa, the power of Creation. They will work with the elements, the forces of the universe, the body of Mother Earth, and sacred healing objects. In sacred reciprocity participants will create despachos to honor Mother Earth, the sacred mountains, the elements, the unseen world, and prepare for a paqowachu, a sacred pilgrimage.

Part 5: The Shamanic Self: Serving the Earth
June 27 – 29, 2025
This workshop deepens participants’ experience of soul and spirit through ritual process, including the spiritual creation, activation and care of an apacheta. Students will work with the power of creation in the kaypacha or middle world, dimensionality and time, as well as with the three suns, and the hampikamayoq process (ancient breathing techniques for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being and transformation). Participants will be further empowered by evoking both seen and unseen sources of cosmic awareness within their mesa, sacred objects and own being, and initiation into the lineage of this revered tradition.
