The Q'ero people, the living descendants from the Incas, have lived for centuries high in the Andean mountains of Peru, secluded from the world and guarding the traditional shamanistic ways of the Paqo, the priest healer. About 25 years ago, guided by prophesy, they began to make their way down from the mountains to share their ancient wisdom with the world.
Never conquered by the Spanish, theirs is an energetic tradition with a world view based on the intrinsic interrelatedness of human beings and nature – a view largely forgotten in modern times. The sacred wisdom of the Q’ero takes us beyond the mystic veil to teachings of enlightenment that they believe are available to all of us.
The Q’ero create their Mesa, or personal medicine bundle, through their connection to the mountains and the heavens. Built on the core concept of Ayni, or right relationship, their mesas connect them with the mountain spirits, to nature, the universe and all of creation. They understand that everything is made up of living energy and be communicated with.
In ceremony, initiation and the embodiment of transmissions (or rites, known as karpays) at the mountain, they became guardians of this sacred knowledge. Their prophesy calls them to pass this ancient wisdom on to the world, particularly now as we ascend to the next level of being.
This is your invitation to experience a deeper alignment and place of power. I invite you to join me for the upcoming class, Knowledge Keepers of the Ancient Wisdom – The Shaman's Mesa: Building a Mesa the Q'ero Way.
Whether you are already a Mesa carrier or are stepping onto the shamanic/mystic path for the very first time, this class will allow you a place of personal transformation and power directly through nature.
We will journey and explore this ancient wisdom "where heaven and earth meet" in Mount Shasta, California. Mount Shasta, called the White Mountain is renowned for its powerful energy, recognized as one of a small number of “energy centers” around the globe.
Over several days, we will gather daily and then travel to sacred power places on the mountain. Through journey, transmissions and ceremony, you will become immersed in the way of the paqo or elder. Using the core inka principles of right action (yankay), right loving (munay) and right thinking (yachay) and direct communication with the mountain spirits you will build and or deepen your own personal medicine the traditional way as done by the Q’ero.
It is important to the Q’ero that they pass on and the world receive the ancient wisdom and knowledge held for so many years in sacredness. By building and/or deepening your Mesa you connect directly to that transformative power of enlightenment, and become part of that sacred transmission.
