The teachings and wisdom of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition allow the fullness of life to be experienced. It is a privilege and honor for these life changing, life improving connections to be offered to our community. The safe space created for healing to occur is a blessing.

The PMT apprenticeship has been a blessing in helping me navigate these turbulent times and offer clarity regarding my future path. The PMT path is providing an avenue to channel my love for the earth and its inhabitants in a loving and constructive way.

I am transformed completely as a person after finishing an apprenticeship within the Pachakuti Mesa tradition. Connecting to deep history and lineage has healed the parts of me that were disconnected, distracted, lonely or broken. This apprenticeship has given me words for truths that I have always instinctively KNOWN and given me a community of family that understand the world in the same way. It has given me practical tools to ground, release and seek guidance and connection. My path to service is clear now, and I now feel empowered to follow it with joy, wisdom and support.
