Pachakuti Mesa Tradition™ Apprenticeship Series
Receive profound wisdom teachings and powerful initiations into cross-cultural shamanism and the shamanic arts in our apprenticeship series with Teachers sanctioned by don Oscar Miro-Quesada and the PMT Lineage.
The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition™: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal is a five-part series of intensives that aligns the traditional teachings of Peru and the wisdom of its heritage with the needs of the present day. Providing a comprehensive foundation and profound initiation through ceremony and prayer into the living heart and soul of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition™, this apprenticeship helps participants cultivate a deeper relationship with nature and the unseen world, and receive multiple opportunities for self-exploration, empowerment and profound personal growth. This powerful series is open to all people who desire to be of service to themselves, their families, their community, and Mother Earth, whether they are long-time mesa carriers or new to this tradition. The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition™ (PMT) was originated by Oscar Miro-Quesada, known world-wide as a Peruvian kamasqa curandero (rough translation – shaman).
Participants will be initiated into the Pachakuti Mesa, a powerful and sacred altar. Each students will learn how to create their own mesa and work with it 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.
An apprenticeship in the center direction of the mesa, traditional Peruvian healing practices, and the kaypacha, the middle world. Students 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.
This initiation is a deep dive 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.
Participants will be initiated into 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.
An experiential intensive into 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.
