  • Google Calendar ICS

What better way to navigate holiday season and jump into a new year than to create a special stone that will remove dense, heavy energies?

Daily we collect energy in our “poqpo”, our energy body, that can weigh us down. For this 2 hour gathering, we’ll do a few limpias, or clearings that will demonstrate how we may remove this energy and feel lighter. For a more potent limpia, you’ll be given a special stone that you’ll program as your extraction stone. This shamanically empowered item will be at your service to remove that gooey energy that keeps you from feeling light and clear.

You may also use this stone with clients, friends, or family members. The extraction stone is a simple yet powerful process that reinforces that, yes, shamanism works!!

Space is limited - MUST RSVP/pay prior for this event!!

Visioning Your Future A Day of Energetic Clearing, Gong Journey & Creativity

  • Ukhu Pacha Healing and Inquiry Space (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us December 29th as we near a cycle of completion and close 2018. We will gather as community and let our imaginations flow; visioning and dreaming in the coming year.

Initially we will begin by performing limpias on one another. (also known as ritual cleansing actions).  By doing these simple rituals - using Peruvian Florida water, smoke & rattles/bells- we release heavy dense energies that can bog us down. With the aid of the limpias we may be free to move into the New Year feeling lighter and more spacious.

We'll follow this ritual work - with a  lovely vibrational gong journey - and ask our guides to join us and direct us with insight and tools needed for this powerful manifesting for the coming year. 

Finally to solidify our magical work - we'll play! Each participant will make a vision board to assist in the manifesting. We'll have ribbon, magazines for collaging, glue guns, all kinds of fun stuff for creating your 2018 Dream Board.

Bring your base (no larger than 3' please - and if there are certain items you want to include...bring them, otherwise all the crafty stuff is supplied

Saturday, December 29 - 1:00- 5:00 p.m.

JANUARY 2019: Pachakuti Mesa Tradition 15-Month 5-Part Series
Jan
25
to Mar 22

JANUARY 2019: Pachakuti Mesa Tradition 15-Month 5-Part Series

“When you engage in the shamanic arts, the magic begins in a deep and real way; the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition is the best, most loving and efficient means to powerful and rich transformation. By participating in this tradition, with a shamanically empowered altar, your connection to the natural world is intensified and a vast portal is opened.  The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition offers the opportunity to awaken from a deep sleep. This slumber is brought on by both the demands of hectic modern times and the collective memory loss of who we really are: earth-honoring humans that perform rituals of sacred reciprocity with the natural world. Once you come back to this understanding, you may find balance and internal harmony. With the simple tools and practices of this tradition, you’re invited to*re-member (as Oscar will often say) who you’ve always been.  And this re-membering can become your daily practice.”                        

Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) 5-Part Apprenticeship begins January 25, 2019 at Spirit House Retreat Space in Woodacre, California. Just a $100 deposit holds your space, and monthly payment modalities are available (see below).

In Quechua, (one of the languages of the Andean Regions in South America) the word pacha translates to earth, world and even soil and the word kuti translates to turning, churning and reversal and sopachakuti means world reversal or turning. Thirty years ago, don Oscar Miro-quesada brought together the two rivers of his 17- year apprenticeships with his two teachers. (don Selso Roja Palamino of the North Coast of Peru & don Vargas Coriharmaun Benito of the Andean mountains of the Cusco region). In Oscar’s visioning these two rivers of knowledge came together as one, and he consecrated the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT). In Oscar’s vista (deep visioning) he could see, as prophesied by many – the vast planetary changes coming our way.

We are at a time of great turning and churning, have you noticed? How is this change infiltrating into your life?  What tools are you using to assist in staying steady during these times? Do you find you are knocked off balance by the uncertainty that we are facing? Many folks may feel numbed out by all the social media & technology or experience this intensity as a blanket of heaviness that feels like a dense weight. If it feels intense, it’s because it is. As a Sanctioned Teacher for the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, instructor Jnana Gowan believes it is her duty to be of service and assist others in finding ways to navigate these wild waters of change.

Beginning in January of 2019 the PMT 5-Part Apprenticeship Series will be offered in a full, rich retreat setting. It is here, in sacred circle with others, that you may explore the living lineage of the teachings that don Oscar was asked to pass along to other earth walking seekers. These teachings to be transmitted to those that desire a deeper connection to self and to the planet, to those that have a desire to be of service to others and to be a spokesperson for our beautiful planet earth, our pachamama.

Consisting of five weekend intensives, over the course of 15 months, this apprenticeship will lead you through a living lineage of Peruvian Shamanism. Part I is open to anyone wishing to deepen their connection to Spirit and animate universe and no prior experience is necessary.

Parts II - V build upon the teachings and initiations received in the prior weekends, which are prerequisite. This program has been carefully crafted to offer people from all walks of life a heartfelt initiation into the healing power and earth honoring ceremonial artistry of Peruvian mesa lineages.

By embarking upon this 15-month apprenticeship, you will engage in ancient teachings & transmissions not only from the PMT, but also from the natural world and from your own Pachakuti Mesa. Things may accelerate as you step into this powerful shamanic path because when a group of people join forces to create change – it can happen.

That is why the retreat setting is so important, appropriately named, Spirit House. The space, located in Woodacre, California, provides a supportive and pristine container for this powerful growth work.  And though you will feel a million miles from it all, Spirit House is only 25 minutes from San Rafael and 1.25 hours from both San Francisco & Berkeley)

Shamanic Gong Journey & Healing Work
Dec

7:00 PM19:00

Shamanic Gong Journey & Healing Work

  • Ukhua Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join us for this time of darkness as we near the Solstice. Let’s sew the seeds that will gestate and flourish in the coming year and use this sacred time to cultivate & fertilize new ideas & new ways of being. We will use a beautiful gong to travel to the upper world, also known as the Hanaq Pacha for insight and support. For this journey work, we intend to travel to the Hanaq Pacha to ask for guidance from our high teacher(s), to commune with the stars or be gifted a medicine teaching from the illuminated celestial beings. In addition to this support, we simultaneously benefit from the vibrational frequencies being offered. 

PLEASE NOTE:  bring a pad, blanket, eye pillow for journey & a special item/arte to charge on the mesa                                              

All levels are welcome, new comers and long-time journeyers alike.

The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing we travel as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies), so the travels may be clean and clear.

Per usual, Jnana will guide the journey, integrate healing ceremonial work and weave in sound healing instruments. Of course the awesome vibrational gong bath will assist all that join for deeper healing experience.

All are welcome, newcomers and long-tim journeyers alike.

It is an honor to host this shamanic practice with the aide of the Pachakuti Mesa; it provides a profound container for this soul-nourishing work.

What to bring:

  • a medicine piece or sacred item that you like to energy infuse on the shamanically charged altar

  • a bell, singing bowl or rattle, etc.

  • an open heart and mind

Cost: Sliding scale $15-$25

This is event is happening- take care of yourself with all the smoke---however, now, more than ever we MUST dig deep and do our work.

Come together in a sacred circle with strong prayers of change, support and courage.

These are wild and turbulent times, we are asked to sit up, be strong, assist others. These events are healing circles as well as shamanic journeying and are designed to help us stay steady. We are moving into the darkness of winter with a veil of smoke - join us to imbibe in the sustenance of this soul-work.

Join us as we journey to the lower world (also known as the Ukhu Pacha) and dive into the interior realms, asking spirit for help. Journeying to the Ukhu Pacha offers the opportunity to integrate aspects of the self that have been fragmented, for whatever reason, and to welcome these fragments back.

When experiencing this kind of process, the participant may experience a greater sense of wholeness. Now - more than ever - we need to come into wholeness so we may be strong for ourselves and community. The best way to be there for others is do your your healing, your own spiritual work. So come on.

This altar anchors the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. These ritual cleansings (with the use of Peruvian Florida water & rattles) ensure that we will travel to the underworld as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies) so the travels may be clean and clear.

If you know you want to attend this class- begin collecting your own feathers as part of your spiritual work (feathers supplied but you're invited to bring treasures from home to embellish your piece). 

This energetically charged item may be used for your spiritual practice - or serve as a meditation for the simple act of being in present time. The participant may choose to use this expression as a "give away" something made with love and intention, to be lovingly passed on to a friend.

Free - Full Moon Despacho and Community Healing Ritual
Oct

7:00 PM19:00

Free - Full Moon Despacho and Community Healing Ritual

Join us for a powerful full moon honoring of our mother earth. This event is free of charge.

We will come together as community and offer our gratitude and thanks by way of creating a gratitude bundle, also known as a despacho.

The intention of this earth honoring ceremony in downtown Oakland near Oakland school for the Arts (OSA) is to ask the nature spirits of the area for assistance and safety of all people - especially our young, vibrant people that go to OSA.

We will commune with the moon, land, wind, plant life and all that is present and acknowledge that even in an urban area the nature spirits are alive and well. Together we express our gratitude and our highest thought forms (aka prayer) to say thank you for all we are given by our mother earth. This is a powerful earth honoring ceremony and by creating a despacho, it brings us into sacred reciprocity with the natural world.

In addition to the despacho, we'll walk a spiral pattern around the OSA campus with sound instruments, singing, incenses, flowering waters...and create parade of positive love and healing!!

After this walk we will return to the park and offer the bundle to the earth.

These ceremonies are very powerful - and also a festive and community building event.

It is an open ceremony all humans are invited, kids welcome.

Bring sound instruments if you have them :-)

Please come!! and tell your friends!

  • Google Calendar ICS

PLEASE NOTE: Bring a mat, blanket, eye pillow etc... to journey with—-also, our event has MOVED TO OPEN DOOR METHODIST CHURCH: 6226 ARLINGTON AVE - RICHMOND CA 94805

Friends-

September 22 is the Autumnal Equinox, the day and night are equal. With the powerful energies of the equinox, let's join together - the day before and  prepare for the "balance point."

At these special times of the equinox and solstice, cosmic portals are created where spiritual work may be magnified...By doing this work, the participant may experience a greater sense of wholeness.

We have riden the wild waves of a summer full of eclipses!! It is time to stand on your surf board of life in equilibrium  in deep gratitude.

Shamanic work is a powerful prescription to keeping yourself rooted and grounded -it assists in allowing the wild to come through without taking over. Every month we meet to do this soul work  - and this month you are invited to dive into the interior realms and ask spirit for help.

You're encouraged to explore your inner world with the assistance of your animal ally. The summer of the "eclipse corridor" offered a good deal of chaos - by journeying to the Ukhu Pacha (or lower world) you are offered the opportunity to integrate any aspects of yourself that have been fragmented, recently or long ago, and to welcome these fragments back.

The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, smoke & rattles) we will travel to the underworld as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies) so the travels may be clean and clear.   In addition to this -  for tyou may ask for medicine gifts or be open to an initiation of some kind. Directing your animal ally is beneficial in this way – and we will discuss this more at the gathering.

All levels welcome - those that are new to this kind of work to seasoned practitioner.

Jnana Gowan, Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and Pachakuti Mesa Tradition carrier, Ceremonialist, Transformational Worker will guide this evenings event. The journey itself will be guided (initially) by voice to the underworld and will include live drumming.

Shine Like the Sun - Summer Healing Special - EXTENDED!!
Jul
1
to Jul 31

Shine Like the Sun - Summer Healing Special - EXTENDED!!

This special was so well received - I am extending it. The July astologivcal forecast is a biggy, major masculine energy is lining up - as well as two eclipses ---- this is one way to stay steady in the wild winds!  Join me at the Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space for a Healing Session and Energy Infusion.

The session consists of sitting at a Pachakuti Mesa (a shamanically empowered altar that has special items placed in specific locations)

This (Peruvian) tradition – originated by Maestro don Oscar Miro-Quesada – offers you a direct experience to go deeper with yourself with the assistance of the natural world.

The Solstice Special includes a series of limpias - several simple processes that assist in removing heavy dense energy that may create imbalance and/or dis-harmony.  In addition to the limpias, you will receive a hands on healing – infusing your entire being with spiritual energy.

After the session, you may feel relaxed and lighter…sometimes the session may be energizing, yet sometimes,  you may feel like taking a nap! These simple sessions help you to slow down, connect to your higher self and thus allowing healing to occur.  

Prior to the appointment, you may want to begin to focus on your intention for the session; creating an intention can be very powerful as we bring our attention to the areas we’d like to work on or change. In addition to intention, you may want to ask yourself what you’d like to cultivate in your life or what you are ready to fully release. 

Also, it is helpful to ask:  What do I want? What brings joy? Where is the energy?              With that said, you may wish to stay open and see what is presented in the moment. 

Lastly, you may bring an item that has deep meaning to charge on the mesa to during our session; a stone, photo, necklace, etc., anything that has meaning/vibration for you, You can bring more than one item - yet, you do not have to bring anything if not called to do so.

The Special is completed in a 50-minute period -  If you have a desire for a longer, more in depth session, please inquire.

Contact Jnana today for the extended July Special – so you may shine like the sun this summer!!

When: The month of July - days and evenings available                                                                Where  Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space, 1501 Washington Ave. Albany, CA 94704       Cost: $40-$60

Traversing the Worlds - an Evening of Shamanic Journeying with Jnana & Madhu
Jun
1
6:00 PM18:00

Traversing the Worlds - an Evening of Shamanic Journeying with Jnana & Madhu

  • Swedenborgian Hillside Community Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With the combined guidance and assistance of Jnana Gowan & Madhu Anziani join us for an evening of deep exploration of personal & spiritual growth. This evening of magic will assist in releasing that which no longer serves; exploring other worldly realms and connecting more deeply to self and spirit allies. 

Using the powerful container of the Pachakuti Mesa, a shamanically empowered altar, we will practice the ritual art of limpias, energetic clearing/cleaning  on one another in addition to the rich shamanic journeys. 

Madhu will guide us to the Ukhupacha - the lower realms via vocal looping & weave soundscape rhythms. He brings his deep insight of chanting & self reflection to the circle to augment the experience of each participant.

Jnana will embellish the sound field with sacred instruments and lead the upper world journey with a 32" Paiste Gong. She will assist by offering a guided meditation to both worlds.

The participant is invited to travel to both worlds:  the ukhupacha; the inner realms & the place of the sub-conscious. A world where things are hidden within the shadow-self and may be brought to light and transformed. Then, to the upper world, the hanaqpacha; the superior realm. Here, one may meet ascended masters, high teachers and beneficent ancestral beings here to assist each person on their earthly path.  

To give space between these worlds, we will have a small break - enjoying a light snack and tea.

Journey work has the potential to be extremely powerful and create change in one's life in a short period of time. The journey provides an expedited key to a gateway that has always existed. It is truly soul-nurturing work.

We invite all levels of participants, those that are new to shamanism and those that have been on a medicine path for years. It is for everyone.

- If you feel stuck, lost, isolated...join us to assist in a shift that may bring you back into wholeness.                                                                                                                                     - - If you are a curious seeker, this might be just the prescription you are looking for.                 - If you want to be with folks that are on a quest for deeper connection to spirit, this is the place.

When: Friday June 1, 2018, 6:00-10:00 p.m.

Where: Swedenborgian Hillside Community Church, 1422 Navellier Street, El Cerrito, CA 94530 (same location as Peter Pan Preschool)

Bio of leaders:
Jnana Gowan, Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition is a healer and community leader in service to shamanic arts. Director of Powerhouse Education (her umbrella organization) is an institution dedicated to personal and planetary well being. As an Urban Ceremonialist and healing practitioner, Jnana has led workshops, classes and retreats for two decades. These events/healing sessions are infused with her unique blend of enthusiasm, insight, body-knowledge and a good sense of humor. Her healing center, The Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space is in Albany, CA.

Madhu Anziani is a vocalist whose sound has been described as “otherworldly, both a portal and a vessel for sound healing.”  His vocal looping, weaving soundscapes and beatboxed rhythms with traditional Tibetan mantra and other sacred musical invocations, creates a deeply meditative soundscape.  

Madhu learned from the first-hand experience of being paralyzed as a quadriplegic, and used sound and energy healing to completely recover. He has studied Jazz and World Music and went on to be certified in Sound, Voice, and Music Healing at the California Institute for Integral Studies.  He has studied very closely with Wisdom Healing Qi Gong Master Mingtong Gu and Peruvian Altomisayoq Don Oscar Miro-Quesada of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition.

We welcome insight and support from above at this very powerful time.  

This is the third journey intensive at the Hillside Community Church. These special events expand beyond journey work alone and create community connection and personal healing. 

What do you want to change? How do you want to be in the world? What needs to heal so you may stay steady in these turbulent times?

This is the perfect arena to address these questions

All people are invited - all genders - all races....we come together in sacred circle to assist one another to grow.

Exposing & Embracing Addiction - free online series

I am honored to be a part of this FREE online series.....please pass along to any friends or family that may be struggling with addiction:

If you are someone who struggles with unbalanced relationships to drugs and alcohol, you probably know all about the “Secrecy and Shame Spiral”: you drink, you feel ashamed for drinking, so you hide it, which makes you self-loathe, which makes you drink more. It’s a dark, scary place … and you may be there right now, longing for something better for yourself, but not knowing where to turn for help. If you are, THIS is where you turn! Join me and over 21 experts in the field of addiction and recovery beginning February 26, 2018, for How to Overcome Secrecy and Shame and Live with Freedom and Self-Love, a complimentary interview series hosted by my friend Beth Osmer—recovering addict and alcoholic, hypnotherapist, and Shamanic practitioner.

Jan

to Jan 12

5 DAYS AT ESALEN, WOMEN IN TRANSITION: Climbing into Your Authentic Self

Your house is on fire. Your boat is sinking. What do you want take with you? What are you happy to watch sink or go up in flames?

This workshop will help you make these decisions so you can navigate change and rediscover your most authentic self. In your authenticity, choose what you desire rather than what you think you’re supposed to do or what others want from you. Turbulent times are a call to adventure. Embark on a mythic journey with a transformational blend of rigorous and restorative Hatha yoga, purposeful writing, deep relaxation, and guided meditation and ritual. Women in Transition gives you the time, space, and tools to ride the wave of change. You’ll learn strategies and rituals for embracing a deeper connection to your higher self. Come spend the weekend in the beauty of Big Sur, interweaving nature, ceremony, and a healthy dose of humor into the fabric of who you are. The yoga and writing is for all levels. Please bring a yoga mat and bolster if you have one, a journal and an item that symbolizes your deepest, most authentic self. We will create an altar for the week (and the item will return home with you).

With these spacious five days, we'll take in the beauty and power of Esalen's natural world, soak in the healing mineral waters that can wash away what needs to be released and be deeply nourished by food prepared by a world-class kitchen.

To sign up for this meaningful experience, please follow link:

As both teachers facilitate this apprenticeship, one's own innate healing and spiritual potential is awakened. The apprenticeship revolves around the creation of your mesa. This is a shamanically empowered altar, unique to you, yet following the traditional, ancient Andean template. The mesa provides a living, vibrational technology of the sacred from which you may draw upon and apply a a vast array of shamanic healing modalities and capacities that have come down to you from over at least three millennia.

Each initiate guided toward a re-membering of who each of us is, as a living strand of sacred luminosity in the great Web of Life. The PMT is designed and empowered to promote the transformation of consciousness for those who choose to engage it, thus opening the way for the continued life and health of all sentient beings. The Heart of the Healer Foundation, the sponsoring organization, is dedicated to education about and sustaining all those indigenous peoples and practices that still remain on our planet.

New Moon Gong Journey

  • Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The New Moon is a time of darkness. It is a time of the cultivation and fertilization of new ideas and news ways of being. Join us as we use a beautiful 30" gong to travel to the upper world, also known as the Hanaq Pacha for insight and support at this very powerful time. In addition to this support, we simultaneously benefit from the vibrational frequencies being offered. 

For this journey work, we intend to travel to the Hanaq Pacha to ask for guidance from our high teacher, to commune with the stars or be gifted a medicine teaching from the illuminated celestials.

The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in sacred space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, smoke and rattles), we will travel as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies), so the travels may be clean and clear.

Jnana Gowan, a sanctioned teacher and graduate of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) Apprenticeship Program and PMT carrier, will guide the journey. The journey itself will be guided (initially) by voice and will include an awesome vibrational gong bath.

All are welcome, newcomers and long-tim journeyers alike.

It is an honor to host this shamanic practice with the aide of the Pachakuti Mesa; it provides a profound container for this soul-nourishing work.

What to bring:

  • a medicine piece or sacred item that you like to energy infuse on the shamanically charged altar

  • a bell, singing bowl or rattle, etc.

  • an open heart and mind

Cost: Sliding scale $15-$25

Location: Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space, 1501 Washington Avenue, Albany, CA 94706

You may use this potion on yourself or on others to remove dense, heavy energies known as hucha. You may also choose to use your specialized water infusion to connect more deeply to the plants that have chosen you, or simply enjoy the aromas of your own personal floral essence water.

Charged by the light of the full moon on the night before our gathering, these dreamy waters will be infused with floral essences/essential oils - creating what is needed for YOU.

In addition, for our special workshop, we will will recruit the assistance of a shamanically empowered altar, known as a Pachakuti Mesa. This altar is originated by Don Oscar Miro-Quesada, a healer from Peru. The mesa hold the forces of nature and all the elements of our Earth and works with the spirit realm.

Full Moon Drum Journey

Full Moon Drum Journey

  • Ukhu Pacha Healing and Inquiry Space (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Using the powers of the full moon, please come join as we continue our studies of the internal, of the lower Realms also known as the Uhku Pacha. Together we will shine the light of the conscious mind into the unconscious; by journeying into the Ukhu Pacha, we awaken more deeply to who we are.

This work encourages you to dive deep into your inner world with the assistance of your animal ally. Journeying to the Ukhu Pacha offers the opportunity to integrate aspects of the self that have been fragmented, for whatever reason, and to welcome these fragments back. By doing this work, the participant may experience a greater sense of wholeness.

Besides this experience, you may ask for medicine gifts or be open to an initiation of some kind. Directing your animal ally is beneficial in this way...to be discussed more at the event.

The evening will include the use of the Pachakuti Mesa as the container for the work, anchoring the journey in space and safety. We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, smoke and rattles), we will travel to the underworld as our truest selves, leaving behind hucha (dense, heavy energies), so our travels to the underworld may be clean and clear. 

Jnana Gowan, sanctioned teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) and PMT carrier, will guide this evening's event. The journey itself will be guided (initially) by voice to the underworld and will include live drumming.

All are welcome, newcomers and long-time journeyers alike.

What to bring:

  • If you have a medicine piece that signifies your relationship to the lower-world (or a purun illa)
  • a rattle that you are connected with (there will be extra on site if you do not have one)
  • an open heart and mind

Sliding scale: $15-$25

More on this event:
"The Ukhu Pacha is a place one must journey to for maturity and growth to take place. This could be seen as bringing aspects of the unconscious (shadow archetypes) into conscious awareness, bringing healing to conditions of the self that are repressed, and aiding in the development of aspects of the self that are unfinished. It is the place where (ayni) sacred reciprocity has not yet been realized."

Transform Your Life - The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition

Transform Your Life - The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition

  • Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space` (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We need powerful tools to assist us as we grow and change. The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT), a shamanically empowered altar, is a blend of two living shamanic lineages, the Southern Highlands and Northern Coastal regions of Peru. These earth-honoring practices offer assistance to help one stay steady in times of great change.

The sustenance that we gain by spending time in nature is extremely powerful and healing. By working with a Pachakuti Mesa, one may crete deeper connections with the natural world and integrate these energies into our every day lives. Having a sacred space gives us more room and time - and in this place of quiet, we are able to come into balance. 

By using the natural forces that are in our midst every day, you can make the changes in your life that you are seeking.

At this evening's event, we will construct a Pachakuti Mesa Tradition shamanically-powered altar together, discussing the qualities of what each direction offers (north, south, east, west, center). After it's construction, we'll open the mesa with song and be open to the experience created.

We will also do limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another. By doing this ritual cleansing (with the use of Peruvian Florida water, smoke and rattles), it will release with dense, heavy energies that we tend to carry. By doing so, one may feel lighter and harmonious.

As a friend of mine's teacher once said, "The spirit realm is alike a call center, they are waiting patiently for your call." ...join us to make your call!!

Rites of the Munay Ki: Energetic Transmission
Aug

Rites of the Munay Ki: Energetic Transmission

The Nine Rites of the Munay Ki are energetic transmissions that are passed on by lineage keepers and loving earth-walkers. These rites are shared by interested souls that wish to accelerate the transformation of the planet. Each transmission, nine in total, is likened to a seed; when nurtured with love and intention, may assist in the growth and spiritual development. 

These seeds are for any person that has a desire to change, transmute and develop; spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.

The origins of the Munay Ki are from the Andes. The Q'ero Shamans of Peru have passed these wisdom seeds along in loving service in shared interest for spiritual evolution of humanity.

These rites are offered monthly. Each month you may receive one transmission. After completing all nine transmissions, you may pass them yourself.

Join us. Offered the First Friday of the month at the Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space. 

This community offering is a free class.

Location: Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space, 1501 Washington Avenue, Albany, CA 94706

Mateo McGee: Navigating Transformation

A Shamanic Exploration of Adaptation and Change with Mateo McGee

The Invitation:

The world as we know it is rapidly transforming. The tradition of Peruvian Shamanism has declared that we are living in the time of prophecy, known to them as the Taripay Pacha, or “Age of Reencounter.” The elders of this tradition have foretold this time of great change, and how learning to energetically adapt as it all unfolds will hold immense potential for healing (both personal and global). 

However, unless we are actively creating space for this transformation, and cultivating deeper forms of awareness about its influences, we can miss much of what it has to offer. This is one of the most important functions of ritual and ceremony. Ceremony provides essential ingredients to turn the many forms of change we are encountering into a hearty and nutritious meal to fuel us through its unfolding. 

This day-long intensive is designed not only to create this ceremonial space to heal, transform, and acclimate to these changing times, but to provide you with the tools needed to more deeply implement this space at home in your daily life.

Join Mateo Magee, author of Peruvian Shamanism: The Pachakuti Mesa, for a day of celebration, transformation, and healing through ancient ritual and ceremony. See below for a list of course topics. For more information please contact Mateo directly at mateo.magee@gmail.com.

Creating a Protective Talisman - Resguardo

Creating a Protective Talisman - Resguardo

A resguardo (pronounced res-war-doe) is a protective talisman that is simple to make and by wearing it on your body, out in the world, it is a very powerful way to keep you from absorbing other people's energy.

The resguardo, from shamanic Peruvian tradition, is made from fur, feathers, bone, teeth or any medicine substance you have from an animal ally. it should be worn on the right side of your body, either in your pocket, or in a white pouch. When worn in this way, it will protect the wearer from many types of energetic "dano" (literally "damage"). When you are not wearing it for protection, it should be kept on the left side (campo ganadero) of your mesa, on your own altar or in a place of spiritual significance.

All items will be provided to create this small power-object but you will be required to bring a piece of your power animal with you (for example, a feather, bit of fur, a tooth/bone - small!)...I have a collection of items, so contact me to see if I have a bit of what you seek. Otherwise, we can imagine it...and use that intention in the bundle.

This work is done with the assistance of the Pachakuti Mesa - a shamanically charged mesa. You may bring an item to put on the mesa if you like, and take it home super-charged.

RSVPs directly to Jnana Gowan are required.
