It seems truly mysterious that the powers of sickness and cure, which traffic so intimately with each human life remain, finally, hidden and obscure. The irrepressible desire to bring those powers to light accounts for the restlessness of human inquiry, wandering in search of surer knowledge, clearer signs—whether medical or mystical. That same restless desire explains why so many religious traditions have found sickness and healing—and the impulse to care—to be the paradigm of the human condition in the world.” --Lawrence E. Sullivan

Today’s practitioner of shamanism leaves new footprints on paths of psychic awareness and spiritual wisdom that are over 30,000 years old. Shamanism is a soul-infused tradition of spiritual healing, transformational power and perennial wisdom that sees all of life as interconnected and sacred. The process of awakening to this shamanic worldview is as vast as the universe itself. It excludes no one, yet favorably embraces those willing to surrender a limited sense of self. One must live it to understand it. This weekend apprenticeship experience is designed to offer participants a heartfelt deepening of their shamanic life. It is both an affirmation of one’s oath to serve the betterment of humankind and celebration of this possibility in and of itself.


Sustained by the millennial cosmovision and ritual practice of Peruvian Curanderismo, core teachings designed specifically for this weekend intensive shall be derived from the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition cross-cultural shamanism as originated by don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Ceremonial processes conducive to interpersonal transparency will awaken profound states of caring in all present. The artful co-creation of sacred space will serve as a container in which the magic and mystery of curing is disclosed, thus harmonizing both body and spirit. And out of this exquisite soul dance of love and healing, a conscious and sustainable earth honoring community befitting Seven Generations is given birth.


A seasoned navigator of non-ordinary states of consciousness, don Oscar is well prepared to guide people from all walks of life into visionary realms where encounter with multi-dimensional powers and forces are available for the deepening of soul. Following deep personal, interpersonal and transpersonal rites-of-passage, participants will be apprenticed in accessing, harnessing and transmitting the vibrational frequencies known as kawsay, sami uma, sami sonqo and k’anchay used to restore physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual wholeness. From the beauty and grace within this sacred hoop, our unified dreaming of world service shall be made flesh. We welcome you!
