More about this training:
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 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 in it, thus opening the way for 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 people and practices that still remain on our planet.
