About This Event

Pachakuti Mesa Tradition Apprenticeship Series

“Pachakuti” means “world reversal” and refers to the time of transformation we are living now. A mesa is an altar for self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. This tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal is a five- part series of intensives in the shamanic arts of restoring harmony, health, and earth stewardship. This workshop series aligns the traditional shamanic arts of Peru and the wisdom of its heritage with the needs of the present day, a transformational moment of planetary and human history.

Participants will cultivate a deeper relationship with nature and the unseen world, and receive multiple opportunities for self-exploration, empowerment, and profound personal growth. This apprenticeship series is open to all people who desire to be of service, whether they are long-time mesa carriers or new to this tradition.

Part I: The Call to Heal (Releasing the Past) 

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 II: A Balance of Power (Transforming the Present)

During this workshop intensive, participants will apprentice in the center 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 III: The Condor’s Quest (Creating the Future)

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 IV: The Hummingbird’s Ascent (Living the Mystery)

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 V: The Shamanic Self (Serving the Earth)

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.

What is The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition?

Pachakuti” means “world reversal” and refers to the time of transformation we are living now. A mesa is an altar for self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. This tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.

What is the origination and lineage of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition?

Don Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo is the originator of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism andthe visionary founder of The Heart of the Healer organization (THOTH). Through his teachers, don Celso Rojas Palomino and don Benito Corihuamán Vargas, the ancient lineage of this shamanic tradition can be traced back to its origins over 5,000 years ago.

Don Oscar’s first experience with Peruvian shamanism was under the famed huachumero don Celso Rojas Palomino from Salas. After don Celso transitioned to the Spirit World, don Oscar then started a four-year apprenticeship within the Andean Paqokuna tradition of shamanism with famed kuraq akulleq don Benito Corihuamán Vargas from the village of Wasao.

Both of these venerated elders sanctioned Oscar with a similar compacto de voz y palabra (i.e., “an oral bequeath as elder lineage carrier for the people,”) requesting him to share the “prophetic vision” of the “Ancient Ones”, among as many people as possible living in modern Western developed nations of the world. Both elders insisted this was the only way of safeguarding the true “inner wisdom” behind the Earth-based spiritual traditions and healing arts continuously practiced by Peruvian indigenous cultures since time immemorial. They both insisted that this was the only way to prevent the total disappearance of these sacred wisdom traditions.

THROUGH THE STUDY AND PRACTICE OF SHAMANIC RITUAL ARTS, INDIVIDUALS LEARN TO LIVE IN HARMONY WITH NATURE, MOTHER EARTH AND HER CHILDREN, THE ANIMALS, PLANTS, MINERALS AND EACH OTHER.

"Robin and Darcy are impeccable guides, offering from their depth of personal experience and sincere desire to serve all life. With their unshakable integrity and incredible passion for this work, they bring a joyful and light-hearted approach to transformation. " ~ Cassandre Ortiz, Canada
