Oneness in Duality: Exploring the Complementarity of Opposites

  • Hillside Community Church 1422 Navellier St El Cerrito, CA, 94530 United States (map)

For over 10,000 years, the spiritual traditions of Peru have been refining their expression of integrated dualism in the material world. Not only is this wisdom depicted in their altar systems, it remains alive in the ceremonial teachings, and often in the lifestyles of those practicing. The elders understood the goal of all ceremony is to weave wisdom and truth into the fabric of daily living. This one-day intensive is an invitation to steep in this ancient Peruvian wisdom, which encourages both our light and our shadow to work together as a cohesive and complementary whole. Join us for a day of ceremony, integration, and rejuvenation. 

We are honored once again to host Mateo Magee, author of Peruvian Shamanism: The Pachakuti Mesa for this new one-day intensive. Drawing from 17 years of shamanic teaching experience, Mateo offers Peruvian wisdom with a specific focus of “living the ceremony.” His extensive ceremonial research, and direct apprenticeships in several shamanic traditions of Peru, allow Mateo to offer this ancient wisdom in a manner that both empowers with knowledge and nourishes with love, truth, and depth. He is excited to be offering this fresh material for the new-year and to be continuing his evolutionary work with the Northern California ayllu (extended family).
