Full Moon Drum Journey & Healing Work

  • 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.

When:    Sunday April 29 - 7:00-9:00 p.m.                                                                    

Where:  Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space -                                                                                        St. Alban's Parish Hall 1501 Washington Ave. Albany, CA 94706

Cost: $15-$25

What to bring:
- bring a pad/mat, eye pillow, blanket to lay on

- 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."
(from Matthew Magee's book, Peruvian Shamanism, The Pachakuti Mesa)

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.

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:

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 30 - 1:00- 5:00 p.m.

Cost: $35-$75 (sliding scale)

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. This New Moon will coincide with a solar eclipse happening that same day...so we are bound to ride some wild cosmic waves. 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.

We will open the mesa and perform limpias (or ritual cleansing acts) on one another.

These apprenticeships consist of five weekend intensive gatherings involving hands-on practice and initiation. This series is called The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal. The PMT is a profound yet practical, user friendly, living shamanic tradition dedicated to both personal and planetary healing. 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

Join us on Saturday, November 4th for a time of ritual and ceremony. We will make individual cleansing waters, designed and created by you. With the use of your intuition, a pendulum and the power of vibration (a 34" gong), you will create your own special potion. 

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.

Traversing the Worlds - an Evening of Shamanic Journeying
Oct

5:30 PM17:30

Traversing the Worlds - an Evening of Shamanic Journeying

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

Join us for an evening of deep exploration of personal & spiritual growth. This evening we will do a clearing ritual called limpias and explore shamanic journeying. Though guided meditation and with assistance of both a shamanic drum and a 34" Chinese Rain Gong, we will deepen our connection to the expanded worlds - or the universe.

Traveling both to the lower world, also known as the Ukhupacha (one's interior realms, the place of the sub-conscious where things are hidden within our shadow-self and may be brought to light and transformed) and the upper world, also known as the Hanaqpacha (this place is known as the superior realms, the place of ascended masters, high teachers and beneficent ancestral beings), we will have a very rich evening of self-inquiry and personal transformations.

To give space between these worlds, we will break bread together in the kaypacha (our physical here and now "reality"). We'll do this by offering a time of fellowship and community, with the participant being offered a light vegetarian soup along with delicious bread and cheeses.

This beautiful evening will reap the benefits of exquisite beauty and all of the nature spirits that reside amongst the area of the Hillside Community Church's sacred space. 

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

This work has the potential to be extremely transformative and profound in a short period of time. Coherently, we exist in the three worlds of soul, the journey work provides an expedited key to a gateway that has always existed. It is truly soul-nurturing work.

What holds this work together so impeccably is the use of a Pachakuti Mesa, a shamanically empowered altar (originated by Peruvian Healer-Curandero, don Oscar Miro-Quesada). This powerful altar creates a pristine container for individuals to do their personal growth work by being deeply supported by nature spirits. It is a portal to other worldly realms and a cosmic composting center!

If you feel stuck, lost, isolated...this work may 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.

Join us.

When: Saturday, October 21, 2017, 5:30-10:00 p.m.
Where: Swedenborgian Hillside Community Church, 1422 Navellier Street, El Cerrito, CA 94530 (same location as Peter Pan Preschool)

RSVP deadline: Wednesday, October 18, 2017
PLEASE RSVP: We are serving a meal. There is a wiggle room for 5 drop-ins but you must contact Jnana with your intention to drop-in, so that we may plan for it.

What to bring:
A journal and pen
A yoga mat or floor mat/cushion and wrap/blanket for journey work
Eye pillow
Water bottle
Sacred item to "charge" on the central altar (it will return with you)
Any dietary special items - we are offering vegetarian soup (gluten-free), bread and light cheese plate.

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
May

11:00 AM11:00

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.

New Moon Gong Journey & Solar Eclipse Ceremony

New Moon Gong Journey & Solar Eclipse Ceremony

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. This New Moon will coincide with a solar eclipse happening that same day...so we are bound to ride some wild cosmic waves. 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
